Some of us in the Design team have been gathering on a monthly basis to have lunch together and share things we find interesting to us.

Today, I’d like to share with you the Brown Bag lunch we had this week.

Vesa shared with us his interest in photography and showed us some of the shots he took over time.

I came across an inspiring research done by Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Art in London. The research focused on facilitating older people using mobile phones, rather than designing a simpler phone for them to use.

And, our challenge of the month was to build the tallest paper tower! Each team had 20 pieces of paper and 6 minutes, with 2 rules:

1. You can only use paper to build your tower
2.You can tear or fold the pieces of paper.

Well, I’m happy to report that Rachel, Vesa and Olga proudly won this challenge with their paper tower!

How would you build your tower in 6 minutes?
