Flare Fassade / 2009 / WHITEvoid interactive art&design

Flare - is a modular system to create a dynamic hull for facades or any building or wall surface. Acting like a living skin, it allows a building to express, communicate and interact with its environment. The system consists of a number of tiltable metal flake bodies supplemented by individually controllable pneumatic cylinders. Due to the developed pattern, an infinite array of flakes can be mounted on any building or wall surface in a modular system of multiplied FLARE units.

One Flare module - consisting of 16 aluminium cast units, which can be inclined silently with a Festo Pneumatic system - is about 1x1m. By reflecting ambient or direct sunlight the individual flakes of the system act like pixels formed by natural light.

Christian Guder is a Berlin based Product, Interface and Interaction Designer. He is operating at the interface between art, design and technology. After an apprenticeship as industrial mechanic at Leica Microsystems, Jena he studied at the Bauhaus-University Weimar Product Design.The past two years, Christian Guder gained practical experience working as a project manager and interface designer at Christopher Bauder`s Studio - WHITEvoid interactive art&design, Berlin, Germany. This involved realising international projects ranging from installations, to user interfaces for museums and trade shows targeting appeal to the public. Furthermore, through my apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic, I am highly skilled in mechanical engineering. I believe an ever growing range of technologies will be introduced into our environments in the future. Our task as designers is to take this growth in the field of industrial engineering and form it through good design that makes the technology accessible to the customer. Christian Guder Portfolio gives you a introduction to my work.
Christian Guder ist ein in Berlin ansässiger Produkt-, Interface und Interactiondesigner. Er Arbeitet im Spannungsfeld zwischen Kunst, Design und Technologie. Nach seiner Ausbildung als Industriemechaniker bei Leica Microsystems GmbH, Jena studierte er an der Bauhaus Universität Produktdesign. In den vergangenen zwei Jahren sammelte er umfangreiche Erfahrung als Projektmanager und Interfacedesigner im Büro von Designer Christopher Bauder - WHITEvoid interactive art&design, Berlin. Hierbei lag sein Schwerpunkt auf der Realisierung von internationalen Projekten im Beriech interaktiver Installationen, Hardwaregestaltung sowie dem Design von Benutzeroberflächen für Messen, Museen und diversen Festivals. Durch seine technische Ausbildung als Feinmechaniker besitzt er besondere mechanische Fähigkeiten. Mein Portfolio gibt Ihnen einen Einblick in die kreative Arbeit der vergangenen Jahre.
