Clippings Portfolio, "The Walking Office" Winning Entry in the 30th Mainich Industrial Design Competition, 1985

Summary

The Walking Office Wearable Computer is a prototype model created by the design group Salotto Dinamico. This proposed device subverted where (and when) the office could be by turning the human body into a mobile workstation. Combining 1980s Italian design aesthetic with high-tech materials, the Walking Office is unapologetically cyberpunk-chic. It received global attention in design, fashion, and technology publications.
