Sea Bacon, Plant Drones, and a Whole Lot of Material Exploration: Student Shows at Milan Design Week 2016

An impressive characteristic of the student exhibitions at this year’s Milan Design Week were their sheer ambitiousness: with projects that went far beyond the normal fare, topics ranged from creating plastics out of completely natural sources to imagining how to satisfy our meat craving in a speculative post-meat world (hint: it involves seaweed). Some students decided to tackle more aesthetic and conceptual concerns while others turned to more political spheres to investigate just how far design can help to improve in areas of sustainability or even humanitarian efforts. The overall results were not only elegant, but also thought-provoking and inviting even for those not normally engaged in design-centric conversation circles. 

More from Core77’s coverage of Milan Design Week 2016!

Vestae by Creative Academy
The students of Creative Academy, the design school of the luxury goods group Richemont (their portfolio includes Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Piaget and Montblanc), presented a capsule collection based on wellness in the stunning setting of the Albergo Diurno-designed bathhouse located at the subway entrance of Piazza Oberdan.

Bitponics personal gardening assistant eyes-on (video)

Plants need TLC just like any other living thing, but sadly, they’re not really great at telling you what they want. Bitponics is looking to take a bit of that guess work out of hydroponic and aquaponic gardens with a WiFi base station that monitors your plant life and connects to automated accessories that help you care for them. The device ships with monitors for pH, water temperature, air temperature, humidity and light, connecting to the company’s Bitponics Cloud system, so you can monitor things remotely via web browser. The system’s not cheap — it’s set to run $499 when it ships, fittingly, this spring. Check out a video walkthrough of the setup just after the break.Gallery: Bitponics personal gardening assistant eyes-on
