COMCOM Home network appliances
COMCOMは「未来をむずかしくしない」をコンセプトに企画されたホームネットワークに接続された家電プロトタイプ群です。当時の松下電工の社内ベンチャー, Comfortable Communicationsがクライアントでした。プロトタイプ自体がこの会社のイメージを表現する必要があったので、プロトタイプ間のデザイン統合に気を配ってデザインを行いました。
「佇まい」を全体のキーワードとし、プロトタイプのカテゴリーごとに機能やユーザーとの関係に合わせてデザインの特徴を変化させています。
残念ながら発表直前にComfortable Communicationsは解散することになりましたが、当社でのプレス発表は許可されました。スイッチプレートには多くの商品化依頼が寄せられ, 他の幾つかのプロトタイプはハリウッドの大手プロダクションからSF映画への貸出依頼もありました。
COMCOM is a group of prototype home appliances connected to home network, designed under the concept;”let’s not make the future difficult”.The client was Comfortable Communications, corporate venture within Matsushita Electric Works(currently Panasonic). As the company was brand new and unknown, we had to create a group of prototypes that simultaneously impress people and introduce them to the concept of COMCOM so the uniformity of design between the prototypes was very important. The keyword of the whole lineup was “atmosphere” and the difference in characteristics of each prototype reflects the function and the relationship between the user and the prototype. Unfortunately the Comfortable Communications was halted just before the unveiling of the prototypes but we were allowed to unveil them as part of our press releases. There was a lot of interests in producing the switch plate on a commercial basis and we even received requests from Hollywood movie production companies to rent some prototypes as props for Sci-Fi movies.
COMCOM是和家居息息相关的家电系列商品,以「未来不困难」为概念而设计的。松下电工(现为Panasonic)的独立事业Comfortable Communication是案主。试作模型必须表现公司的印象,所以我在设计时十分注意试作模型之间的统合。
系列整体的关键词是「氛围」。配合试作模型的类型不同,以及功能和用户的关系,变化调整设计特征。
很可惜地,在发表前一刻,Comfortable Communications解散,不过仍允许本公司公开发表。开关板接获许多商品化的要求,其他几项试作模型也外借好莱坞大型制作公司,拍摄科幻电影。
