Power window

Windows that open and close mainly through electric power using a switch or remote control to operate them are called power windows. As they can be opened and closed without touching them directly, they are used in situations where the window is question is rather heavy, or installed in locations where it is hard to reach. In recent years it has also become possible to operate such windows from a smartphone by linking them to internet technologies.

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.

 

電動窓  

スイッチやリモコン操作により、主に電気による動力で開閉できる窓を「電動窓」と呼ぶ。直接触れずに開閉が行えることから手の届かない場所への設置や重量のある窓を開閉させる用途に使われる。近年はインターネットテクノロジーと結びつくことでスマートフォンからの開閉操作も可能になっている。

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。
