Danielle Feinberg began her career at Pixar Animation Studios in February 1997 and has worked on films such as “Monsters, Inc.”, the Academy Award®-winning “Finding Nemo,” “The Incredibles,” and “Ratatouille”. Feinberg was the director of photography-lighting for the Academy Award®- winning features “WALL•E” and “Brave.” She just finished work on Pixar's November 2017 film “Coco”.
At the age of 23, Feinberg’s first role at Pixar was as lead render technical director on “A Bug’s Life,” where she in charge of a team of nine men, eight of whom were older than herself. She also got her first taste of lighting on that film and quickly discovered her passion for it because of the unique combination of technology and art.
Neri Oxman combines breakthroughs in materials science (such as 3D printing) with design principles found in nature. Imagine a skyscraper made with concrete that can breathe and grow and “think,” or a chair that moves with your body. Buoyed by boundless enthusiasm, Oxman’s talks are obstensibly about what is possible when you mix art and science; but really they’re about possibility itself.
Welcome to the world of Neri Oxman, an award-winning designer who looks to nature for practical design solutions. In jaw-dropping discussions of her work, Oxman opens a vista onto a lush, wondrous, and sustainable future within reach—one where technology and nature live in harmony. Featured on the cover of Fast Company's 100 Most Creative People in Business issue (2009), Oxman transcends the boundaries between art, science and environmentalism.
Oxman is the Sony Corporation Career Development Professor and Associate Professor of Media Arts and Sciences at the MIT Media Lab, where she founded and directs the Mediated Matter design research group.
Her group conducts research at the intersection of computational design, digital fabrication, materials science and synthetic biology and applies that knowledge to design across scales from the micro scale to the building scale. Her goal is to enhance the relationship between the built and the natural environments by employing design principles inspired or engineered by Nature and implementing them in the invention of novel digital design technologies. Areas of application include product and architectural design, as well as digital fabrication and construction. Recently, Oxman and The Mediated Matter Group completed version II of their glass 3D printing platform entitled GLASS II, which takes glass to (literal) new heights. The show opened in an exhibition for Lexus YET at Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy, April 2017.
Martin Lesjak, CEO of INNOCAD Architecture, co-founded with designer Anastasia Su, the product design firm 13&9 in Graz, Austria. 13&9’s transdisciplinary team’s cooperation with specialist partners has led to creating product collections from concept through production in the spheres of lighting, furniture, floor coverings, fashion, accessories, exhibition and sound design.
Their work relies on the interplay between architecturally-inspired forms and fashion and explores issues such as modularity, compatibility, flexibility and transformation in development of new products. The overall results are unique designs that combine functional necessities and innovations with conceptual aesthetics, which also offer an emotional component, adding to the product value, "the soul" of 13&9 Design.
INNOCAD was founded in 1999 by Martin Lesjak and Peter Schwaiger. Since then, they have completed numerous projects of various sizes and scope in the different fields of architecture and interior design such as residential, office, hospitality, healthcare, mixed-use, educational, public, and retail. The team is internationally renowned for their "out of the box" thinking and their analytical and pragmatic approach to architecture and design by creating solutions with purpose and meaning.
