In 2012 i was working for IXDS as a design lead and project manager. IXDS was approached by INNOZ to visually explain the future of our energy infrastructure. The NGO is involved in research on how new, green technologies are adopted by society. In addition to that they are trying to explain new trends and technologies to stakeholders and the public. For this aim, they asked us to create a piece for their exhibition showroom.
The final solution is an interactive multitouch installation. The collaborative visualization is based on real energy consumption and production data. It allows the user to create different scenarios and energy setups in a tangible and playful way. Through this open narrative we were able to create an intuitive experience which works great as a discussion and communication starter.
The system is installed in the INNOZ technology campus in Schöneberg, Berlin. Due to the success two more tables are being build and are going to be exhibit in the UK and China.
