Stilsucht Cliffhanger by Thomas Schmitz

(5 years ago)
I love when design sites/magazines/writers venture from not only covering inspiring design to helping bring it into the real world! In this case, our friends at Stilsucht, have just launched the Cliffhanger by Thomas Schmitz! A brilliant little hook that slips in between two pipes/slats/etc and lets gravity lock it in place… it was designed with a German “Altbau” in mind (think high-ceilinged, warehouse/loft like pre-war apartments that often have pairs of water pipes running vertically!) “The first batch comes in five different colors and each is an ode to the heart of cities. Berlin is represented by an urban Kreuzberg gray, Munich is a friendly Schwabing blue, Cologne has a sunny Ehrenfeld yellow, Frankfurt hails with a cordial Bornheim red and Hamburg shows a maritime Schanze blue.” I love that beyond helping designs become a reality, these are made in Berlin (also home of Stilsucht!) in the Stephanus workshops Berlin, a non profit workshop for social and vocational integration and rehabilitation of disabled people. I had the pleasure of getting a pre-release Cliffhanger from Stilsucht when i ran into him in France last weekend ~ and i must say it feels nice and solid, with a rubbery coating that keeps it from slipping through the cracks, so to speak. While i may not have the same vertical pipe set up, i have actually found it quite useful hanging from my puppy gates (yes, they are basically the same as baby gates) and even between the back[..]

TF2

(5 years ago)
"Based on the success of Maud’s rebrand for Tony Fer­guson, we were approached to assist in the devel­op­ment of a new product, designed to address the ‘do it your­self’ weight loss category. We cre­ated the TF2+ brand as a con­tem­por­ary and innov­at­ive product, offer­ing con­sumers a bet­ter way to lose weight fast. It was built as an altern­at­ive to meal replace­ment diets that act as a sub­sti­tute for ‘real’ food. In con­trast TF2+ is a nutritionally-balanced, low GI sup­ple­ment that is designed to be con­sumed with food."

Limited Edition Johnnie Walker Director Blend

(5 years ago)
"There are some things that money just can’t buy. The Johnnie Walker Directors Blend is one of them. Created annually by Johnnie Walker Master Blender, Jim Beverage, the exclusive Directors Blend isn’t available for sale, instead it is given out as “a personal gift to esteemed friends” of Johnnie Walker. Every year a unique edition is produced. Throughout the course of this year, Diageo will gift 504 individually numbered bottles of the 2012 edition. In keeping with tradition, the bottle for the Directors Blend is designed by one of Diageo’s design partners; creative agency, LOVE was invited to design the bottle for the 2012 Blend. Instead of using the label to describe the contents of the bottle, LOVE chose to use it to celebrate the recipient of the Blend, drawing inspiration from Johnnie Walker’s Keep Walking philosophy. Gavin Pike, global brand director for Johnnie Walker at Diageo explains: “LOVE composed a series of poetic toasts in celebration of the character of those individuals who might receive a bottle. The labels have been created with an attention to detail and craftsmanship that reflects the quality of the whisky.”

(5 years ago)
