Sheffield Design Week takes place from 13 - 21 June

June is turning into a month of not to miss events - not only are the graduate shows in full flow, with New Blades heading up our pick of model making wonderment - but there’s fully fledged design genius on show as part of Sheffield Design Week.

The Made North conference is the hub of the action, taking place on 18 June with speakers, such as Design Museum director Deyan Sudjic and founder of Provenance Jessi Baker, tackling the theme of ‘Transformation’.

Sessions will look at how design can transform our behaviour and actions or simply make life easier in terms of accessing, enjoying and understanding real or virtual environments.

The BOXX APEXX 4 7402 (left) and APEXX 2 3402 (right).

The new BOXX APEXX 2 3402 and APEXX 4 7402 overclocked workstations both have 8 CPU cores capable of exceeding 4GHz.

According to the workstation specialist, this makes them ideal for both single-threaded and multi-threaded tasks including 3D modelling, animation, rendering, and simulation.

“APEXX offers the best of both worlds,” said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of marketing and business development. “They alleviate the single-threaded bottlenecks found in Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, Revit, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks, and other professional applications, while also providing 33GHz of aggregate frequency for faster rendering and simulation.”

The new HP Z25n features an ultra-narrow bezel making it ideal for spanning CAD images across multiple displays

HP has introduced a new family of professional displays including a new 31.5-inch 4K DreamColor model for colour critical design and a range of ultra-narrow bezel 24-inch to 27-inch models ranging from 1,920 x 1,080 to 2,560 x 1,440 resolution.

With a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160, the HP Z32x is HP’s first 4K DreamColor display. The premium model is designed to provide exceptional colour precision and consistency straight out of the box on a wide 10-bit colour spectrum sRGB/BT.709/AdobeRGB (100/100/99.5 percent color coverage).

HP says fast and easy hardware recalibration can be achieved with either the HP DreamColor solution or the Klein Instruments K10-A.
