If you’ve ever wanted to hear someone talk to works at the intersection of design and science, this video is for you.  It features Mathias Gmachl– one of the core collaborators at loop.ph– talking about how science has informed the work that the studio continues to produce.  The studio started way back in 2003 when he and the other core collaborator at loop, Rachel Wingfield, worked with Nobel Prize-winning scientist John E. Walker. Walker won his prize for helping to characterize ATP synthase, the molecular motor that Gmachl talks about.  Since then, the studio has produced numerous project that translate abstract research into fanciful and tactile designs.
