American Craftsmanship is Not Dead

(8 years ago)
The phrase "U.S. craftsmanship" is not exactly on everyone's lips these days, particularly in the design industry, but it is alive and well. It's being reinvented by guys like Jim Lougheed, a Michigan native whose family background in machinery (both grandfathers were machinists) has propelled him into a career in furniture designing and building with an emphasis on the industrial. "I want the stuff to look like it came out of a factory even if it's unique—so clean it looks like a robot made it," Lougheed says in an interview with a local Michigan paper.We could not find a website or even contact information for Lougheed's furniture company, Industry Manufacturing Co., though we did locate some YouTube videos of him discussing his first chair and his creative process:(more...)

Created Equal… Photographer Mark Laita

(8 years ago)
In America, the chasm between rich and poor is growing, the clash between conservatives and liberals is strengthening, and even good and evil seem more polarized than ever before.

Beautiful photography by Kerstin zu Pan

Designer in Charge: Dodge CEO Ralph Gilles

(8 years ago)
We love seeing designers speak with passion, and it's a bit startling, though satisfying, to see when the designer in question works for a large corporation but has not had that passion beaten out of him. If anything, it's quite the opposite in the case of Ralph Gilles.Something appears to be going very right over at Dodge, where CEO Gilles is both an industrial designer and relatively young at just 40 years of age. As Gilles describes himself in an interview with Forbes,I don't see myself as the classic car designer that's all about style. I'm always thinking about the business case, the big picture implications of whatever we're working on, the engineering challenges. A true industrial designer is more of a problem solver. A true artist tends to make a singular piece that stands almost in a museum by itself, whereas an industrial designer is designing a solution for millions of people.Anyways, back to the passion—check out this vid of Gilles speaking the design gospel at the Los Angeles Auto Show after the jump:(more...)

Segrasegra: Czech Cycling (Innertube) Style

With outerwear, jeans, sweatshirts, T-shirts and a few specially designed "wheel-to-work, peddle-to-party" pieces for women, the line is defined by its use of bicycle innertubes in its design, which has both practical and aesthetic purpose. Explains the sisters:We visited a few bike shops and got the old tire tubes for free. [The material] has found a really great use on our clothes. So if anybody has some at home, bring them to us!

Monster Review: The iPad 2, Part One

(8 years ago)
The first people to notice my iPad 2 were two gum-chewing NYPD officers with heavy eyelids. It was notable because the iPad was buried inside a backpack at the time. "What is that," one asked the other, pointing at the X-Ray machine's monitor."S'an iPad," said Officer #2."No," said Officer #1. "It's got three screens." A question mark went up over my head.Having been assigned to Jury Duty, I was going through a security checkpoint at an New York City Courts building. The officers demanded I take the iPad out of the bag for inspection. "See," said Officer #2. "S'an iPad.""I guess the new one's got three screens then," said Officer #1.I learned that "screens" is their X-Ray slang for "batteries," which show up on the X-Ray as monotone bars. The iPad 2 is flatter than the original iPad—it's even flatter than the iPhone 4, for chrissakes—and to compensate for flattening the batteries, Apple's added a third one to keep it juiced, which stood me in good stead for the copious web browsing, e-mailing, game playing and TV-show-watching I did while waiting to be plucked out of a room filled with 200 potential New York City jurors.(more...)
