Dreh-Kipp (turning, tilting) window

A Window with two opening and closing functions, one of which involves rotating inwards horizontally (“collapsing inwards”), while the other operates by rotating inwards vertically (“opening inwards”), are called Dreh-Kipp (turning, tilting) window. Such a window first emerged in Germany: the term Dreh-Kipp consists of the German words drehen (to turn) and kippen (to tilt).

Index of Window Sounds and Movements 

For this project, we sought to extract and observe the sounds and movements associated with the opening and closing of windows, in order to shed more light on how we perceive a “window” through our ears and eyes. A Glossary of Window Sounds and Movements is the first research project of “Windows Products Inside,” carried out as a collaboration between the Window Research Institute and product designer Yoh Komiyama, with video imagery created by Tomohiro Okazaki.

 

ドレーキップ窓  

1つの窓に内側に水平回転して開く「内倒し」と内側に鉛直回転して開く「内開き」2つの開閉機能が付いた窓を「ドレーキップ窓」と呼ぶ。ドイツで生まれた開閉方式で、ドイツ語のドレーン(回す)とキッペン(傾ける)を合わせた言葉。

窓の音と動きの図鑑

「窓」の開閉する「音」と「動作」を抽出・観察し、私たちが耳や目で「窓」をどのように認知しているかを解き明かす取り組み。「窓の音と動きの図鑑」は「Window Products Inside」の最初となるリサーチプロジェクトで、プロダクトデザイナー小宮山洋と窓研究所との協働で行われており、映像表現を岡崎智弘が作りあげている。
