The Jury comments

”The work focuses on a hot topic and the team has a strong vision and explores the potential of windows and new technologies in an interesting way. The concept is bold and multidiscpinary.”


Miki Sordi and Tehilah Auramo

Miki Sordi and Tehilah Auramo met at Helsinki Design Week 2016 while creating inflatable architecture in a workshop together with the artist collective Plastique Fantastique. After the experience of transforming urban spaces, the duo continued to collaborate during a seminar in environmental aesthetics and decided to start designing concepts that make sense for the changing needs of urban dwellers. Consequently, the concept design studio dRAWSPACE was born in October 2016. With their designs, they hope to revolutionize how people think of sustainable lifestyles, urban off-grid and future logistics – not only for the purpose of inspiration, but in order to cater to, enable and support the progress of society and the emerging circular and sharing economy through technological innovations and the art of experimentation.

Key Insights

Drow creates a meaningful space by repurposing windows. Drow is a smart growing platform that hosts drone deliveries from within the convenience of your own home. No expensive balconies are needed. New sharing and cultivating possibilities are just outside your window.

Drow is an urban garden in heights. The planter boxes can, through simple steps, be adjusted to the preferred height. Let the sun filter through the flora and enjoy the sensation of refreshing green light and natural protection. Or upgrade your Drow windows even further with sun-powered screens, several planters and food storage.

Future homes require the successful facilitation of controversies. We want to become self-sustaining while having the possibility to connect with outside world in no time. When the pressures of urbanization decrease available and affordable living space, Drow increases it. Ultimately, utilizing height will become necessary for cultivation and transportation technologies in future cities.

In the era of globalization and urbanization, our vision is to create attractive design concepts that facilitate technological development, urban renewal and planetary wellbeing.

According to our mission, by combining the science of modern technology and ancient permaculture, we empower curious individuals and help to integrate them in three different ecosystems: natural – social – digital, for the creation of caring and learning communities.

In everything we do we want to stay true to our core values: discovery – radical ecology – sharing culture.
