Tom Dixon presents Multiplex

British lighting and furniture company Tom Dixon will launch a new collection in a fresh new space, Officine Stendhal, as part of an exciting exhibition called Mulitplex for Milan Design Week on 12- 17 April. Partnering with Blackberry, Tom Dixon is constructing a 400 sq m installation incorporating the new collection with the BlackBerry PlayBook. New products include ETCH (pictured) and BULB. Multiplex is a Tom Dixon designed pop-up viewing theatre, broadcasting centre, restaurant, shop and gallery, where you can explore the multifaceted world of Tom Dixon and the cutting edge technology of the Blackberry Playbook. A clear departure from the traditional exhibition booths typical during the Milan Design Week, where the convention is to show single prototypes, the aim is to create up to six working environments all in full use.

Harvard lights up Surrey

Surrey County Council has started to install Harvard’s wireless street lighting solution LeafNut, across its 89,000 streetlights. The project, which is due to take five years to complete, will help Surrey County Council to reduce its carbon emissions to comply with the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency (CRCEE) scheme. The CRCEE states that councils need to reduce their carbon emissions by 34 per cent by 2020, based on 1990 levels, or they will have to pay tax credits to central government. The LeafNut system helps to reduce carbon emissions by 100kg of carbon per year, for every street light, which will ensure councils are well placed to meet targets.
