This is supposed to be the frame of the for our setup. The laptop we were going to use is a 360 degree laptop. Since it a touch screen it allows like bellow. (When this photo was taken, it was still in development).
We chose for a varnished wooden border because it has a cafe feel to it, with warm lights of yellow and brown, we believe it creates a relaxing atmosphere that makes it feel less corporate, which was one of the things we found out when we tested initial ideas towards the year ones in BCT for our project.
Because if you are given a screen to play with, in the room of the showcase, it can be confusing what to feel and to do or experience. Other peoples work run in different ways. So to mitigate this, we allowed it to have a feel drawn from cafes. Many meetings and collaborations happen outside of meeting rooms and occur at cafes with varying results but the always consistent factors is quiet ambient, not silent, location. Newlands, M.
