Goings on at the Because We Cannery

Because We Can at IDEO

So IDEO does these things called "Quickies" where they invite artists, designers and generally interesting fun people to exhibit their stuff. The thought is that it brings new and creative thoughts and ideas into the IDEO office, and will inspire everyone.We were invited to exhibit our furniture and LED tables. There were probably about 400 people that came through, 5 other exhibitors and 10 or so performers.

We wanted to show off a bunch of cool things, so we pushed out a few product lines that we had been brewing for a bit.

The largest thing we did was create a final working prototype of our new fully digital LED table, "Deke". (which is not yet on our site) Here Rob from CoActLab (who we collaborated with on the table) is sending different programs to Deke.

We also pushed out a bunch of new little products that we have been thinking about for a while, like our new presidents and wild life chair series, which will be for sale on our store later this month:
