Dave Johnson's Buckyball-Moving Magnet Machine

(8 years ago)
Call me a hypocrite, but while I'm disdainful of Design for the Sake of Design, I'm all for Mechanical Engineering for the Sake of Mechanical Engineering. Dave Johnson's self-built Magnet Machine sends Buckyballs on a little journey with no purpose, but does demonstrate some cool bits of electromagnetic science: This machine manipulates small spherical rare earth magnets, slicing one at a time from the end of a long chain, moving it around a bit, then dropping it back to re-connect at the tail end of the chain.It also demonstrates a little snippet of science called eddy currents. Watch how slowly the magnet falls through the aluminum tube compared to falling through air: the falling magnet generates an electrical current in the tube, and that current in turn generates a magnetic field that opposes the movement of the magnet, slowing it down dramatically.(more...)

NY Design Week 2011: Beetle-Infested Table by Hooker & Co.

(8 years ago)
While most furniture designers carefully avoid beetle-infested wood in their salvaging quests, Jesse Hooker embraces it with open arms. This weekend, Brooklyn-based Hooker & Co. debuted their STAGG table at the Bklyn Designs booth at ICFF. Fabricated from salvaged steel for the metal base and tapered legs, and reclaimed barn maple for the main slab, the table comes in five reclaimed wood types and four lengths. The STAGG table is their first departure from exclusively making one-off pieces, which is a definite challenge when using reclaimed materials. While their work is not all insect-infested, this particular piece has dark swathes of beetle-made patterning, and is the direct product of envisioning something beautiful in something previously considered "damaged."(more...)
