Pythagoras

(7 years ago)
Mit seinen drei Beinen steht Pythagoras immer stabil und ohne zu wackeln auf dem Boden. Der kantige Entwurf von Sander Mulder überzeugt aber auch durch einen überraschend hohen Sitzkomfort und eine hohe Steifigkeit, beides wird durch die vom Origami inspirierte Formensprache erreicht. Es stehen Beine aus Eiche oder Aluminium zur Auswahl, so kann der Stuhl [...]

Cyclops

(7 years ago)
Der Schalter für Cyclops ist das wohl wichtigste Gestaltungselement an Sander Mulders Leuchte, denn das “Auge” in der Mitte übernimmt diese Funktion. Zieht man die Leuchte nach unten, wird Cyclops ausgeschaltet, bringt man sie wieder in eine gerade Linie, geht das Licht an. Auf beiden Seiten ist ein Dimmer angebracht, so kann die Helligkeit ganz [...]

Miss Van: Wild At Heart

(7 years ago)
It’s been a few years since i’ve been to a Miss Van show ~ you can see pictures from some of her 2006-2007 shows in the NOTCOT archives… tonight, i popped by Miss Van’s solo show“Wild At Heart” at Copro Gallery. A playful series of work filled with masks and her signature ladies with a focus on the eyes… The press release says Choosing to focus on details while isolating different body parts, such as eyes and mouth, Miss Van adds, “The masks allow me to show more feelings, other sides of a same character, hiding the face, partly or totally and embracing the animal strength, personality and attitude. I am illustrating the chemistry between the feminine delicacy and the bestial instinct, natural and raw and we all have this duality inside.” This show is sponsored by fashion brand, Citizens of Humanity, which is branching into the arts. Show visitors received Citizens of Humanity t-shirt collaboration with Miss Van (only in girls sizes!) with a print of one of the eyes from the show on them, and she will also be featured in the premiere issue of a new collectible print publication by Citizens of Humanity launching this August. Take a peek at the show and the t-shirt on the next page!TO PAGE 2 of "Miss Van: Wild At Heart"! -----> (Want more visual goodness? See NOTCOT.com + NOTCOT.org)
