The Roeterseiland Campus is an open city campus of the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The campus is situated in the eastern part of Amsterdam, a neighbourhood with houses predominantly built in the 19th century.

Panasonic’s Office Headgear Inspired By Horses Blinkers

Office Headgear

OMG the human workforce will be able to buy ‘wearable blinkers’ in the near future. This headgear is good for not having distraction in busy places while working. The idea for the headband is similar to the devices worn by horses in the city, The human blinkers are still in the prototype phase, so they may never come true, but we, at Mimi Berlin, feel that even thinking up such an ‘animal-farm’ kind of product is unbelievable! They must have big fun at the Panasonic design offices……..
