Bompas & Parr: Jelly Mongers, Food Architects

(8 years ago)
British duo Sam Bompas and Harry Parr are gluttons. Bompas & Parr are not just your run-of-the-mill food lovers; they delight in the universal excitement of indulging the senses through food and challenge our notions of the dining experience. Known for their detailed architectural models crafted out of jell-o, their whimsical take on food experiences ranges from Alcoholic Architecture, a bar flooded with vaporised gin and tonic imbibed through inhaling, to an Artisanal Chewing Gum Factory. Just in time for Easter, they created a two-day Rabbit Cafe populated with albino rabbits and today in London they threw open the doors to a room-sized chocolate waterfall (churning at the rate of 12,000 liters an hour). In two weeks time, their ode to the history, art and science of gelatins, Jellymongers: Glow-in-the-Dark Jelly, Titanic Jelly, Flaming Jelly will be available Stateside. Check out gestalten.tv's great video profile of Bompas & Parr and learn more about the material advantages of jelly (it's like concrete but you can eat it!), architectural jelly drafting in 3D CAD (they use Rhino) and most importantly, the allure of the wobble.(more...)

The Kona Residence

Beautiful Manufacturing Vid of Marc Newson's Ikepod Hourglass

(8 years ago)
If you thought Marc Newson's Hourglass design for Ikepod was stunning, wait 'til you see the video of how they manufacture it. This may be my favorite making-of video of all. At the Glaskeller factory in Switzerland, workers manipulate borosilicate glass to Newson's precise specifications using a combination of old and new techniques; as an example of the latter, the sand has been replaced by nanoballs.

Salone Milan 2011: Playing with Electricity at Droog's Design for Download

(8 years ago)
Speaking of Droog, counterintuitively, the most exciting thing at the Droog Design for Download show in Milan were a few electrical outlets by EventArchitectuur, tiny in comparison to reconfigurable flat pack furniture systems also on show. For us, though, they exhibited the most potential, moving away from modularly assembled cut out shapes (however striking) into a more sculptural expression of customizable, on-demand technology, addressing a very simple concept: "With 3D printing, even the most mundane mass-manufactured objects become a matter of choice."
