G.M.O. The orchard of tomorrow

(8 years ago)
Genetically modified organisms. This is the age in which every fruit can be reproduced. The age of cherries in January. But most importantly, it is the age when each fruit is perfect and its size is frighteningly large. Designed, pumped, polished. These are the fruits of our consumerism. But at this rate, where we will [...]

New Lindsey Adelman collaboration with Darcy Miro One of our favorite NYC-based designers, Lindsey Adelman, debuted three new collections at the American Design Building installation in the NoHo Design District. Along with new lighting pieces "Burst" and "Catch" featuring her signature mix of hand blow glass pieces and vintage inspired brass stamens, we were excited to see a small collaborative collection of tabletop objects.

United Nude Flat Pack Shoe for "Moon Life"

(8 years ago)
United Nude is a classic case of modern mythology: Rem D Koolhaas (not to be confused with his uncle of OMA) and Galahad Clark—of the storied British bootmakers—launched the forward-thinking shoe brand in 2003 as a new synthesis of design and fashion.Spanish performance artist Alicia Framis invited them to create a "shoe suitable for outer space" for her "Moon Life" project, a multidisciplinary speculation about intergalactic travel and living in space. True to its unconventional nature, United Nude arrived at a flat pack platform heel:...a high-heeled shoe both elegant and sexy while not be limited by the extreme conditions of space such as temperature and pressure. Additionally, United Nude's goal was to create a shoe that can also function in a gravity rich environment.The further the journey, the more it will cost to transport by weight and volume. Therefore United Nude formulated their own criteria for their Moon Life Shoe: to create something as light and compact as possible while remaining fashionable. The outcome is the United Nude Flat Pack shoe.(more...)

BrokenOff BrokenOff: Frederick McSwain, "Die"

(8 years ago)
13,138 days. 13,138 die. One die for every day he lived. Frederick McSwain remembers his friend Tobias Wong as, "one of the funniest people who ever lived. Every day with him was a monumental occasion. He had this big presence. There was something about the way he saw the world, the way he reacted was like the butterfly effect."In his tribute piece for the upcoming BrokenOff BrokenOff exhibition, McSwain chose to create a composite portrait of Wong using dice. Core77 was there for the installation at Gallery R'Pure and we're excited to unveil the final piece today. Full screen is highly recommended, if not outright necessary:McSwain explains:(more...)
