A gecko’s foot is lined with thousands of microscopic hairs that increase the Van der Waals forces between them and the surface they touch, enabling the gecko’s exceptional grip. Cookies and London based artist GHL (George Henry Longly) have created Van der Waals Inc. as an experiment in collaborative working methodologies and behaviours. VdW Inc. is launching a series of functional items inspired by historical and current trends in office furniture, corporate aesthetics and contemporary live/work environments. Taking inspiration from workshop surfaces, drawing desks and sleek computing machines, the suitcase that is presented here is conceived as the ultimate platform device. A carry-on surface to plug in all your gadgets and tools.
