Audi US Marketing division expresses interest in supporting the RH1.
After our attending Miami Art Basel and seeing Audi’s sponsorship of the design exhibit we contacted their US marketing division in the hopes of having RH1 as part of Audi’s exhibit. More to come.
Two years ago, Hong+Rendell combine our talents in a startup and formed RH1 Project. Our business focus is to apply smart design to common products with strong attention to detail.
Under current development is an ultra-light, high performance non-motorized scooter. The scooter is conceived as an adult lifestyle product, designed as a middle distance urban transportation platform as well as a high performance recreational alternative.
Our question was how to remake this familiar form into a “cool tool” that could recast its image into a vehicle that would near rival the performance a bicycle. How can it be made into a viable urban transportation alternative without using electronic power? To address these issues it would need to incorporate the following:
Very light, under 8 lbs.
Small frontal area with an aerodynamic profile.
Stopping power with front and rear brakes.
A wheel diameter appropriate to its performance expectations.
Safe on an irregular road surface.
Low center of gravity for great handling.
The scooter is being developed with a carbon composite frame, fork and foot bed. It rolls on pneumatic high pressure tires similar to those found on racing bicycles and braking is provided by front and rear center pull rim brakes recessed and shrouded behind contoured access ports on the forks. Brake cables are routed internally within the frame providing a clean aerodynamic surface. The estimated total weight is under eight pounds.
Pelvic Floor ModelThe pelvic floor is a group of muscles and ligaments that support the bladder, uterus (womb) and bowel.
The openings from these organs, the urethra from the bladder, the vagina from the uterus and the anus from the bowel pass through the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor muscles attach to your pubic bone at the front and the tail bone at the back and from the base of your pelvis.

Design and 3d Fabrication
45 Park Lane, London:
The Office of Thierry Despont hired SITU Fabrication to provide a series of facade panels for the Dorchester Hotel in London.
I worked with SITU Fabrication to develop design development models and geometry, materials.
The intent was to create the perception of a continuous metallic surface flowing from the top of the building to its base. The 24 custom panels are made of CNC-milled foam coated in a polyurethane resin hardcoat and finished in LuminOre White Bronze.
Once the geometry was finalized we provided design-engineering services to develop a construction which has the luster of cast bronze while minimizing weight and cost. To meet these criteria, the panels consist of CNC-milled high-density foam, which is then hard-coated with polyurethane resin and finished in cold-sprayed LuminOre White Bronze. A fiber-reinforced plastic and steel armature, embedded within each panel, improves the stability of each panel and provides anchor points for mounting to the building envelope.https://situ.nyc/fabrication/projects/45-park-lane
