Last month, the Nokia Design San Francisco office started Design Thursdays, a monthly event every first Thursday to allow Nokia designers in the Bay area to get together and share projects and presentations. During the first Design Thursday, Raphael Grignani, my manager, presented Homegrown, a project to envision sustainable, ethical, and desirable communication solutions for Nokia.


Today, we were given a challenge rather than a presentation: with a bag of spaghetti and a roll of duct tape, build a structure that extends from a table. Prizes were awarded to the greatest horizontal reach and the best aesthetics.


Our team won the horizontal category, with 58 inches. I highly recommend you try this at home.

We are looking for presenters for future Design Thursdays. All interesting projects and people are welcome.
