Vahakn Matossian first appeared on our radar with some amazing work back in 2006 when he was doing an internship with Studio Troika. So we were delighted when he contacted us to participate in the Milan show. Here are some pictures from the show.

British-Armenian designer Vahakn Matossian has been working in the realms of interactive design for a number of years. Son of digital music pioneer and interactive artist and Rolf Gehlhaar, he has graduated from the University of Brighton’s Three Dimensional Design, now studying at the RCA his work contains a huge element of play throughout and is a fresh look at objects we think we know.

In Milan he showed Microscopy, a minimalist table with maximalist character. Any object placed on the glowing ‘hot-spot’ is magnified by forty times onto a central viewing circle, revealing the most intricate and beautiful details. Microscopy transforms scientific observational methods into social play of discovery, allowing many people to explore at once.

‘Boomboy’, the worlds cutest, naughtiest loud speaker and ‘Crucifix’ the religious power supply.
