Designers & Books: Weekly Book Club with Creative Luminaries

(8 years ago)
With e-readers more ubiquitous than ever, its become harder and harder to judge a book by its cover. The brilliantly curated site, Designers&Books is a public platform for creative luminaries like Shigeru Ban, Elizabeth Diller, Massimo Vignelli, Paula Scher and Steven Heller (the latter two are part of the Core77 Design Awards Graphic Design Jury) to share books that are "personally important, meaningful, and formative—books that have shaped their values, their worldview and their ideas about design." All judging aside, it's fascinating to read through these lists and the accompanying commentary from some of our most creative minds. Best of all, you can start your own reading list to email or print (and add to it every Tuesday when the new contributor's book list is unveiled!).Celebrating their 70th contribution, today Designers&Books published the New Yorker Architecture Critic Paul Goldberger's list of 33 must-read titles with a fascinating essay, "Books Every Architect Should Read,"(more...)

The Weird and Wonderful Inspirations of Christian Vivanco

(8 years ago)
Design inspiration is such a fascinating and peculiar thing, and I love seeing how designer Christian Vivanco can draw a straight line between two seemingly very disparate objects. Certain project pages on Vivanco's website start with photos reminiscent of a National Geographic cover that then lead in to the finished product he was able to envision from the unlikely source—from a favela to a storage unit, from algae to a lamp, from a Mexican street vendor to a table.For example, Vivanco sees this......and comes up with this.(more...)

Salone Milan 2011: Salone Del Mobile Photo Gallery

(8 years ago)
Celebrating their 50th anniversary, the Salone Internazionale del Mobile dwarfs every other cities attempt to host a comparable design week event. Stronger than ever, we've always had a soft spot for the Salone Satellite (the young designers section) and despite the gloomy economic climate of recent years, or perhaps because of it, things felt lighter this year with basketwork, warm woods, and soft textiles appearing all over the place. Singapore's Design Facility captured the mood best with their paints which are applied by blowing bubbles or exploding soft fireworks—awesome!» View Gallery(more...)

Watch the Manufacturing of Benjamin Hubert's Eco-friendly Armchair

(8 years ago)
A couple weeks ago, we brought you "Maritime" by Benjamin Hubert for Casamania. Today, we get an inside look at Hubert's "Pod," which is being produced by de vorm. The molded felt armchair is made from recycled PET bottles as "an environmental alternative to large upholstered furniture."The chair's ergonomics allow the user to work comfortably whilst feeling relaxed and separated from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It creates a room-in-room experience with the perimeter of the chair around the users head. The shell of the chair is the largest form ever produced utilizing pressed PET felt technology. This felt allows a distinctive aesthetic as well as offers sound dampening properties to increase the sensation of privacy with acoustic performance.Video of the production after the jump...(more...)

Managing Urban Cycling, Part 1: What is NACTO?

(8 years ago)
Chances are you've heard of the USDOT, the U.S. Department of Transportation, the governing body that oversees the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), the FRA (Federal Railroad Administration) and others. Apologies for the acronym fatigue. The DOT's main mission is "to keep the traveling public safe and secure, increase their mobility, and have our transportation system contribute to the nation's economic growth."Being a national body interested in connecting far-flung areas, one type of vehicle the DOT doesn't deal with is bicycles, since few of us travel from Boston to Los Angeles via pedal power. That's where NACTO, a relatively new organization, comes in.(more...)
