Inside: Vincent Dubourg at Carpenters Workshop Gallery, London

(8 years ago)
This Saturday, Parisian designer Vincent Dubourg's new exhibition opens at Carpenters Workshop Gallery with a brunch! I first encountered Dubourg's work at Design Miami where his exploding wall-mounted shelving unit was one of the more exciting pieces from the fair. Continuing with his deconstructed theme, the centerpiece for his new solo show, "Buffet Nouvelle Zeland Rencontre des Pôles" presents a familiar form in an unexpectedly violent deconstruction. Dubourg describes his pieces as a fusion of furniture, architecture and sculpture. They strike a careful balance between practical and beautiful. He uses traditional furniture making techniques such as blowing glass, wood-bending and metal casting as a means of transforming simple materials and found objects. See more of Dubourg's work after the jump.InsideCarpenters Workshop Gallery19 March - 28 May 20113 Albemarle StreetLondon(more...)

NYC Slide Apartment: Design, Context and Perception

(8 years ago)
I'm not sure what this says about me (though I'm sure you readers will not be shy about sharing your diagnoses in the comments section): I had a variety of reactions to this duplex penthouse NYC apartment making the blog rounds for having a slide built into it to connect the two floors. My first reaction was "Hey, neat." Then, noticing the view of the city beyond the windows, and given that the apartment is listed as being in the East Village, I determined it was that stretch of the East Village around 4th and Avenue D—right next to the PJ's. And suddenly having two apartments combined into a duplex and adding a slide, all within view of several hundred families living off of food stamps in the projects, seemed crass and decadent. I went from a reaction of "neat" to finding the design almost offensive.(more...)

Coke Packaging: If You Can't Beat 'Em...Make Beats?

But as some have pointed out, Coca-Cola packaging, apparently, has something Pepsi doesn't: The forthcoming Daft-Punk-endorsed "Club Coke" bottles.The "Daft Coke" website is still quiet, so we've yet to see exactly just what the hell is going here.(more...)
