Iain Sinclair Design's Brilliant Emergency Folding Knife

(8 years ago)
The Cardsharp utility knife, by UK-based Iain Sinclair Design, is an ingeniously-designed stainless steel knife that unfolds into a credit-card-sized shape for storage and transport. When closed, the rectangular shape protects the blade and the carrier from accidentally cutting themself; when open, the folding surfaces are arranged so that a corner of the rectangle serves as a miniature hilt, keeping the user's finger from sliding onto the blade.

Core77 Design Award 2011: Ping, Runner-Up for Never Saw the Light of Day

(8 years ago)
Over the next months we will be highlighting award-winning projects and ideas from this year's Core77 Design Awards! For full details on the project, jury commenting and more information about the awards program, go to Core77DesignAwards.comDesigner: Studio Sophisti - Wouter Reeskamp & Tijin KooijmansLocation: Amsterdam, The NetherlandsCategory: Never Saw the Light of DayAward: Professional Runner-UpPing: The Connected LampTwo lamps are connected with each other over the internet through a simple installation. One user will see his/her lamp glow when the other switches it on. When both users have their lamps on both light up to full capacity. This makes people aware of each others presence over distance.Our goal was to design a lamp which emphasizes there is a part missing while still being an aesthetically pleasing product on it's own. Our main inspiration was two penguins in a mating ritual or two flames dancing around each other. The dividing curve between the two lamps has parallels with the defining curves or a yin-yang symbol. Only later we realized that the two lamps together bared resemblance to a flower, which is also a symbol of love.At Studio Sophisti we strongly believe in the notion of the Internet of Things. Everyday artifacts connected to the internet and therefore connecting us to people in much more subtle ways as it is doing now. We do believe that this needs to start out simple to prepare consumers for much richer ways of communicating to each other. A[..]

The Rise of the Acapulco Chair

(8 years ago)
Last summer when The Standard Hotel opened it's rooftop bar overlooking the Hudson River and Manhattan cityscape, many New Yorkers were left ogling the stylish woven deck chairs, known in Mexico as the Acapulco Chair. The chair's timeless ease in both design and comfort makes it an ideal candidate for reinvention, reinterpretation and global inspiration. A pedestrian eye can list its core qualities as: a metal frame, a rounded shape and a woven seat.The classic Acapulco Chair was designed in Mexico around the 1950's from steel and plastic. Many believe that the American Hollywood presence in Acapulco's hey day made the chair popular. Some say the chair is based on Mayan hammock weaving but the design and its designer continues to remain anonymous to this day. It is said, though, that in 2000, the Mexican designer Cecilia Leon Dela Barra officially christened the chair as the "Acapulco Chair."These simple chairs rainbow Mexican resort towns in their vibrant plastic splendor and are becoming more common stateside with the help of the Brooklyn-based collective Greenpoint Works. Maya Marzolf of GW explains the chairs essence like this, "its rudimentary function is a sun lounger: The flexible cording cradles the body comfortably, and its open weave allows the breeze to cool your skin."
