Folding Bellows Lamp

January 28, 2017


Starting with an ordinary sheet of drawing paper I did some experiments with folding bellows. The shape is an extruded rhombus.  It has a broad and a narrow side. The narrow side saves space & keeps the minimum distance to the lamp, the broad side makes the visual surface bigger which keeps the light softer. The construction of the lamp is a highly improvised solution made out of bicycle pieces for testing the light appearance. It is important to mention that the lamp is a low-power lamp which does not produce any heat.

Zeichen für den Umgang mit Geflüchteten. [english below.]
Bildschirmfoto 2015-09-15 um 12.50.28
Derzeit passieren täglich tausende Flüchtlinge meine Stadt. Tausende von Münchnern helfen ihnen freiwillig. Um über Sprachgrenzen hinweg für Orientierung und Klarheit zu sorgen, können Symbole gute Dienste leisten. Die Symbole sind frei Hand gezeichnet und vektorisiert. Ziel ist eine klare, warme, freundliche und betont unprätentiöse Tonart.

Arte +7 – I can do it myself.

November 23, 2014

Arte +7 I can do it myself from philipp heinlein on Vimeo.

I’m currently unhappy with the streaming performance of my favourite tv channel Arte. I asked them when this would change but I only got an automatically generated reply that didn’t answer my question. I appreciate Arte’s program (therefore I’m pleased to pay my contribution for it) but as long as the streaming doesn’t work better I can get the same result for much less effort then they do.

Everybody can do that, just download my indispensable Arte +7 Streaming Kit (PDF, 830k) and enjoy a nice handicraft evening instead of not seing anything on tv.
