Knelt™ gets a Most Innovative Product award!

This morning we heard that our launch design Knelt™ has received Highly Commended for the Most Innovative Product in the Junior Magazine Design Awards 2013.
Innovation has been a key driver behind all that we create at Ubiquity Design Studio, because innovation is what takes us all forward and continues to improve the world that we live in.

Innovation isn't just about appearing to be new. True innovation is about being prepared to ask "What if we tried it like this, because surely this must be a better way" and then go about finding out.

Knelt™ is just one of those innovations.

Through study, research and testing (with not just a little bit of nerve & belief) we have found that due to the angles of both the stool & desk combined, the user obtains the optimal postion for a neutral spinal posture, without evening being aware of it.

And then it naturally adapts to you as you continue to grow. That, we believe, is innovation.

The Studio is Two years old this week...

It's been a good while and we thought it was high time to show our face again!

Two years ago we formally started Ubiquity Design Studio and it's been quite a journey so far. Progress has been sure & steady yet we've been reflective too, evolving our concepts & ideas as well as learning from our good & bad experiences. We're not where we expected to be, but to be honest, all things being equal, we're rather impressed with where we are.

We're really just starting and there's a lot more to come...

Ultimately, food is our greatest priority and a great leveller...

As a family, we've had our allotment plot for about a year now and are slowly but surely making headway. Especially since the site was a fallow field for close to 30 years and each plot has been started from scratch!

Quite a community has evolved over that time, with a common unifying desire to be more self reliant in the production of the food we eat.

Not every one gets an opportunity to have such an piece of ground to cultivate, nor even access to a garden to plant for that matter. In this inspiring TED film, Britta Riley talks about the idea of a soil-less hydroponic structure in your window, that offers a realistic solution to those apartment and garden-less souls who yearn for the sense of being a little more food self sufficient.
