British skiers driving to Europe can significantly reduce the risk of an accident by making sure their tyres are safe to tackle sub-zero weather conditions. During the 2007-08 season, over 175,000 skiers travelled to their holiday destination by car. Skiers risk an abrupt end to their trip if driving heavily laden cars with incorrect tyre pressures or low tread depth on icy, snow-covered roads.

Legendary designer chooses resilient and flexible ARPRO? for Design Show   Print  
Ron Arad, the designer and architect, has chosen ARPRO? for his design show, ?No Discipline?. Thursday, 8th January 2009

Paris exhibit uses ARPRO for concepts display

Ron Arad, the designer and architect, has chosen ARPRO® for his design show, ‘No Discipline’. The show required functional ‘eyeballs’ to hold and angle digital picture frames towards the viewer, with ARPRO being selected for its flexibility in this challenging task.

“For ‘No Discipline’, we want our portfolio retrospective of 2D concept work on display, and digital photo frames would be the ideal format for this,” explains Ron Arad, founder of Ron Arad Associates. "As the main display is made up of a wall of tubes, we decided on an eyeball design to contain the frames and sit within the tube. The design had to be light and robust enough to hold the picture frame in place.”
