An Inside Look at Renny Ramakers' House

(8 years ago)
All images and captions from Sight Unseen. The clock on the wall is an antique, from the '20s.I have always loved the intimacy of artists and everyday people opening up their unstyled homes and studios to prying eyes. With the popularity of sites like TheSelby and publications like Apartamento this doesnt feel like an especially fresh phenomenon but it never ceases to thrill me when I get a sneak peak into the details of lived-in spaces. The ladies over at Sight Unseen recently published a great look at Renny Ramakers' (Co-founder and Director of Droog) Amsterdam abode. I love how travel souvenirs and found objects sit side-by-side with icons of design. Check out the jump for some of my favorites and see the rest of the gallery here!(more...)

Video of Festool's "Freeze-Frame" Jigsaw in Action

(8 years ago)
When you're cutting wood with a power jigsaw, sometimes the up-down motion of the fast-moving blade becomes so blurry that you start to lose sight of the line you're trying to cut. I never considered this a solveable problem, which is probably why I don't work at Festool.Festool's super-engineers have added a "Stroboscopic LED"—essentially a strobe light—to the front of their Carvex jigsaw. The light is timed with the motion of the blade, freeze-framing it in the same position at each cycle, so once you get going it looks like the blade's not moving at all:Nuts, right? Don't get too excited if you're in North America; while the Carvex is available in Europe, Festool has just announced they won't be bringing it to U.S. or Canadian shores anytime soon.(more...)
