Why We Need More Creative Teachers with Building Skillz

(8 years ago)
As a high school student I struggled to stay awake in Science classes. I've paid the price as an adult, as I sometimes have to spend hours boning up on stuff online to address my knowledge deficiencies. I can't blame my teachers, even if their voices and methodologies really did have anaesthetic properties, but I sure wish I had a teacher like Alom Shaha. As seen in this (unembeddable) video produced by the National STEM Centre and the Institute of Physics, Shaha relates how he conceived of the idea to make the contraption pictured above to teach his students about transverse wave motion "in a visual and engaging manner." He then whipped it up in about fifteen minutes using skewers, a roll of tape and gummy bears. MacGyver's got nothing on this guy.via becky stern(more...)

Salone Milan 2011 Preview: New Frederick Farg Presents the Succession Collection

(8 years ago)
Up above is "Bespoken Dresses for Old Chairs," a piece by fabric-loving Frederick Farg that we spotted at Milan in '09. Farg will be back for Milan 2011 with his Succession Collection, below, a series of stools and shelves where it seems the upholstery has somehow spontaneously spread from the seating surfaces to the storage units.Three of the Succession pieces will be on display at Milan's Superstudio Piu, but if you want to see more you'll have to wait for New York's ICFF in May; says Farg's website, "The hole [sic] collection will be shown at RH-Gallery during ICFF." That's either a typo or Farg's nickname for these....(more...)

Nokia Acknowledging Fanboy Concept Work

(8 years ago)
For ages, fanboys have pumped out concept renderings of different products and stamped a well-known corporate name on them to lend an air of legitimacy. The worst of these have been pure flights of fancy with no attention paid to "design DNA"—some of the more ridiculous faux-Apple-branded concepts come to mind—while the best have incorporated well-recognized design elements, using a certain angle here, the proper font there, to suspend disbelief.Good or bad, these concepts have largely been ignored by the companies themselves. But now we're seeing something interesting, an actual Nokia-branded blog displaying the concepts prominently. It's only after carefully reading the descriptions (or recognizing images from earlier Engadget/Gizmodo posts) that readers discover the concepts were not done in-house, but were in fact culled from around the internet.(more...)

Thomas Ekström and the thrill of the project

(8 years ago)
Musicality, appearance, form: direct sources of emotions. The designer Tomas Ekström classifies them in four categories. And he tries to conjure them up using four objects, as if they were «emoticons» of design. www.lanciatrendvisions.com/en/317/thomas-ekstra-m-and-the-thrill-of-the-project dtsv.dtse_post_112166_permalink = 'http://designyoutrust.com/2011/04/08/thomas-ekstrom-and-the-thrill-of-the-project/'; dtsv.dtse_post_112166_title = 'Thomas Ekström and the thrill of the project'; Design You Trust RSS Feed | Design You [...]

West Elm's Stria: A Step Towards Differentiated Mass Production

(8 years ago)
West Elm is getting in on the reclaimed lumber game with their new Stria storage collection, manufactured in India. The face of each unit incorporates a type of wood called saal, taken from dismantled Indian railway trestles, that lends each piece a handmade look. It being West Elm, it doesn't come cheap, of course: The nightstand alone comes in at $300. But we like the idea of mass-market companies playing around with this sort of differentiated mass production.(more...)

Sony Open Planet Ideas Winner - Greenbook: Giving you that extra push to do some good

(8 years ago)
This post is brought to you by Sony's Open Planet Ideas.Say you're sitting around on a Saturday, with no obligations other than bumming around the house and poking at old projects you've been "meaning to get to" for months. You debate the idea of actually doing something meaningful with your weekend, maybe even with some quick volunteer work, but where do you go? Even if you had considered this on some Saturday, the extra effort required to identify a volunteer organization might have burned away any energy you were ready to expend. Ay, there's the rub: How can people quickly and easily connect with the thousands of charities, nonprofits and groups they might want to help, even for just a few hours?Paul Frigout considered this problem and created Greenbook, the winning concept from the Sony Open Planet Ideas Challenge.(more...)

Hidden Gems of LA, an architectural tour

(8 years ago)
When Palladium Footwear asked Johnny Knoxville to give us a tour of Detroit, we were pretty blown away and inspired by some of the communities and people they profile and the creative energy that comes across in this four-part series. Yesterday, they launched their newest city profile focusing on the architectural gems of Los Angeles including Rosslyn Hotel, a Frank Lloyd Wright property in Malibu, and the Brewery Artist Complex. We especially love the snippet about the Watts Towers, hand-built by Italian immigrant Sam Rodia from bottles and objects largely collected from his neighbors. Check it out after the jump!(more...)
