"99 Design Innovations for Efficient LED Light" video

(8 years ago)
Lighting design professor, researcher and expert Thomas Schielke has collected ten years' worth of LED designs and developments and put them all together in one video:The video timeline covers a fascinating selection of the first LED luminaries for interior lighting. The first decade with white LED light reveals how designers have implemented new technology in existing housing, added LED as part of a product group or created a unique design specifically for LED. State-of-the art LED technology requires just about one third of energy for the same lumen output if compared to low-voltage tungsten lamps, thereby enabling task lights for offices with less than 10W. The timeline includes international designers and architects like Norman Foster or Yves Behar as well as new products from the recent Euroluce. (more...)

Blue Ventures, 2011 Buckminster Fuller Challenge Winners

(8 years ago)
Congratulations to Blue Ventures, an integrative marine conservation group, the winner of this year's Buckminster Fuller Challenge $100,000 prize. The organization takes a comprehensive market-based approach to conservation by connecting fishery research, female-centered community eduction and alternative income initiatives to protect biodiversity. Their integrative model has helped create the largest community-managed marine protected area in the entire Indian Ocean and their work has affected some of the poorest fishing communities in Madagascar, Malaysia and Belize.Blue Ventures works to develop community owned marine conservation solutions through an ambitious portfolio encompassing marine and fisheries research, sustainable aquaculture, family planning and public health, environmental education, fisheries management and protected area development. Integrating such a broad range of initiatives and delivering them in a specific geographic area represents a novel approach to the development of sustainable and holistic community led marine and coastal conservation in tropical developing world countries.Recently, results of Blue Ventures' fisheries research has demonstrated for the first time that community-based marine conservation brings direct economic benefits to traditional fishing communities, creating a powerful incentive for expansion of marine conservation efforts at scale in tropical coastal communities. Their research is undergoing peer review and will be ready[..]

MIT's Hacked Mugs, Part 2: Documentation & Manufacturing

(8 years ago)
The documentation for MIT's Hacked mugs project is better than most student design projects we see coming out of art schools. The design students have laid out the intended user experience, the design development, and a business feasibility evaluation in addition to showing how the objects are actually made.I especially appreciate that the language is straightforward, more engineer-geeky than designer-flowery; it's "Just the facts, ma'am" as opposed to "We're trying to recontextualize the visceral experience of so-and-so."For those curious about the process of printing on mugs, here are two processes—screen printing and sublimation—that that students looked at.

SIDIM 2011: Montreal Interior Design Show

(8 years ago)
Kenneth Cobonpue, "Halo V Pendant" for HiveThis year's SIDIM show highlighted a wide range of interior design showcasing everything from native Québécois-designers to international furniture and fixtures. In its 23rd year, the annual event is a unique opportunity to see some of the exciting directions being taken in Canadian design. With a dedicated Designers' Tribune section showcasing Québéc-based designers in a two-level shipping container exhibition space, there was plenty to discover. One of our favorite new products from industrial designers Alto Design, is the "Styletto" an ergonomic paint caddy that is sturdy enough to withstand the pressures of a roller but thoughtful enough to store all necessary brushes and equipment in one place.Alto Design, "Styletto"Toy Toy, 100% recycled cardboard furniture for kids!(more...)

The Honeybee Stool: How Would You Manufacture This?

(8 years ago)
I'm super-digging DesignJoo's Honeybee Stool. Alas, it's apparently just a rendering, though I'd pay good money to populate my apartment with the real deal. I have no idea how these things would actually be made; the direction of the grain in the shots seems like a rendering/aesthetic decision and provides no clue as to what the manufacturing method might be, unless it's possible to steam-bend a sheet of veneer into a seriously compound curve.(more...)

English pop star Pixie Lott battles it out with Adele for Prince Harry… (11 photos)

(8 years ago)
English singer-songwriter, dancer and actress Pixie Lott has her eyes on Prince Harry. However, singer Adele revealed earlier this week in Glamour Magazine that she is fancy for Harry as well. Adele stated: 'I know I said I wouldn’t go out with a ginger but it’s Prince Harry!' However, blonde bombshell Pixie said: ‘I’ve always wanted to be a princess and Harry seems to be a bit naughty. I just need to meet him now.’ Also, we can't forget about Harry's actual GIRLFRIEND Chelsy Davy. But they have had an on-again off-again relationship for years. So the question must be asked...Who will win prince Harry's heart in the end? I guess we'll just have to wait and see...The pictures below show Pixie Lott's trendy photo shoot for Lispy.

"Charms & Disguises" by Jenny Ekdahl

(8 years ago)
Jenny Ekdahl is currently pursuing her Masters degree at Sweden's Lund University School of Industrial Design. Her Spring 2011 project "Charms & Disguises," which was recently exhibited at DMY Berlin, is an exploration of the deeper meaning of fairy tales.This project is about fairy tales that are worth remembering. Stories aimed for adults as well as for children. This project is about fairy tale furniture worth listening to. They tell stories, only to those who wants to hear and is prepared to listen. They tell stories, formed by thousands of years of fairy tale tradition... Written by your own imagination.The three pieces—"each inspired by the three different genres of original and dark fairytales; folk tales, art fairytales and fables"—capture both the strong sense of imagination behind the folklore and Ekdale's intuition in translating the uncanny into tangible objects.For example, "Bye Bye Little Lamb" is a play on the "wolf in sheep's clothing," a stool with obvious zoomorphic reference points. The contrast between the brushed aluminum legs and the woolly cushion imparts a further dimension of artifice to the wolf's limb, disguised among the other three legs.(more...)
