Jamison Sellers' Bolt Furniture

(8 years ago)
We're liking the furniture of RISD graduate and Artists for Humanity mentor Jamison Sellers. Sellers' motif is to utilize salvaged bolts of wood from pallets, shelving, and other sources and create careful, geometric patterns. The pattern—fitting to the terminology—is reminiscent of lightning bolts. His methodology reminds us of artist Duncan Johnson, who uses a similarly painstaking process.Our favorite piece is the Pallet Chair. Simple, but beautiful, the dynamic motif on the chair almost looks like a textile instead of mere wood.(more...)

Paul Loebach's Distortion Candlestick

(8 years ago)
We saw Paul Loebach's Distortion Candlestick last summer, but after seeing them for sale at the RISDWorks store, we thought they deserved another mention. The candlesticks are "distorted through a 3D rendering program, rapid prototyped, then cast." The resin used to cast is a bit disarming at first, as you expect the candlestick to feel like wood or powdercoated metal instead of a vinyl-like surface. Regardless, Loebach's pieces would be a fun addition to any place-setting, whether in a modern home or for a traditional home with a funky twist. Pun intended.(more...)

Core77 Design Award 2011: Safe Agua, Notable for Design for Social Impact

(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: Designmatters - Art Center College of DesignLocation: Pasadena, California, USACategory: Design for Social ImpactAward: Professional NotableSafe AguaSafe Agua addresses quotidian challenges of safe water access for families living in Latin American slum developments. Driven by field research in Santiago, Chile, the team designed innovative water solutions, implemented by the NGO client: 10 Mila community laundries, Relava kitchen workstations, and 1000s of Ducha Halo portable showers.The practical challenge for Safe Agua was to design concrete solutions for utilizing, transporting and storing water for families living in the slum or campamento without running water. These families receive water from a municipal truck one to three times per week. When the water is delivered, they store it in barrels outside their homes. Women must hand carry water for each daily task. Bathing becomes an arduous chore rather than a relief; laundry can take a full day of physical labor; and a glass of water can make a child sick. These perpetual burdens consume people's time, diminish their quality of life, impact health and dignity, and become an obstacle to earning a stable income and overcoming poverty.The deep personal, empathetic connections[..]

How Pencils are Made

(8 years ago)
Pencils: Industrial designers start projects with them, cowards use them to complete crosswords. And while I'd like to see specifically inside the pencil factory that makes Berol Prismacolors, this look inside one of Staedtler's factories does nicely. Their "How we make pencils" video is surprisingly entertaining and informative: Among other things, I didn't realize pencils were made in bricks, nor painted by being shot through tubes, and the way they're sharpened en masse at the end is unexpectedly cool.(more...)

Apple Updating 5th Avenue Cube with New Glass Technology

(8 years ago)
The old CubeAs designers, we like watching Apple because of their willingness to push materials to their limits. This kind of thinking and experimentation yielded the unibody MacBook Pros and the ultra-slick iPhone 4s and iPad 2s. And their materials-pushing isn't constrained to their product line: In an earlier post on Apple's forthcoming new HQ in Cupertino, we reported that Apple had learned how to "do" the large, curved pieces of glass needed to build that structure.Looks like large, curved glass isn't all they've learned to do: We've just discovered Apple will be updating their iconic Cube structure at their midtown Manhattan retail location, replacing the current cube of 90 panes with just 15 massive, and I mean massive, pieces of glass (rendering at bottom). The slabs will be roughly 10 feet wide by a whopping 32 feet high, and held together using some sort of secret, proprietary connector that will reportedly be embedded within the glass itself, rather than being comprised of mere external clips.There's no hard business reason to replace the Cube. It wasn't falling down, tourists weren't looking at it dismissively, and it won't lead to an immediate increase in profits. Apple is replacing it for no reason other than that they found they could push the boundaries of glass and have chosen to manifest that innovation. That's what we love, and soon—date TBD—that's what Cube-goers will get to see. Rendering of the new Cube(more...)

In Pursuit of Luxury, Oven Design Takes a Step Backwards

(8 years ago)
Now that we have running water in our bathrooms, I'm going to say there's zero market for a large tin bucket with no tap that you're supposed to fill using water you've boiled after collecting it from a nearby well. The modern way of taking a bath is just so much better. But there are companies pushing old-school ways of cooking.And by old-school, I'm talking Stone Age technology. UK-based The Stone Bake Oven Company is hawking a line of indoor/outdoor wood-fired ovens that you load up with actual chopped wood. The ovens themselves take the shape of igloos, as the designers have apparently learned what the Inuits know, which is how to keep heat dispersed evenly.(more...)
