Quirky Lamps Your Cup of Tea? "Nata" vs "Pagoda"

(8 years ago)
We've seen drinking vessels re/upcycled into lighting before, but I'm amazed that the simple idea (or brief) to "turn a teacup into a lamp" can yield two wildly disparate results, as in these two recent designs. (Perhaps it is only fitting that one is a glazed white ceramic and the other is a strange yet organic matte black.)First up is a lamp by Portuguese designer Gonçalo Campos, who creates minimal yet whimsical housewares "in a process that starts from inside of the object towards the outside." I was quite taken with his latest design, the "Nata" lamp, a tabletop ambient light that resembles a tipped teacup (a third handle serves to prop it up).A ceramic lamp, with gentle curves and a classical look, borrowed from the shapes of table top ceramic wear. It is actually made from a rehabilitated mold, only rearranged... The result is this gentle and familiar shape, that only with slight changes now serves a whole new purpose.(more...)

Core77 Design Award 2011: Common Sense, Student 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: Craig Stover & Karl SluisLocation: Chicago, Illinois, USACategory: Design for Social ImpactAward: Student NotableCommon SenseCommon Sense is an art exhibit consisting of 13 installations that examine the past, present, and future state of the American Dream.We set out to explore how we might make information more compelling—how we might make topics like history and statistics exciting—and what influence the tangible had on the spectacle. We experimented with and explored the idea of socially discursive design, design that addressed not the needs of one, or some, but the needs of all. Clearly, we were very excited to work on this project—it was experimental, intellectual, risky, and above all else, fun.We're both from southern Michigan and have seen some of the best and worst of the American Dream. What was once a land of promise and optimism is now a place crippled by the short-sighted decisions of the past thirty years. Make no mistake: we acknowledge a biased perspective. This does not mean that we cannot be agnostic and fair in our treatment of the facts that inform this perspective. We see no need to sing to the choir, to congratulate ourselves for our knowledge and understanding—we would much rather[..]

DSLR Slate App for Digital Shooters

(8 years ago)
Even with the WYSIWYG nature of digital photography, setting up lighting for a shoot can be a pain; during the few high-volume projects I shot, I started by photographing the subject under different lighting setups, with a piece of paper in-frame that had notes (aperture, shutter, lighting settings) scribbled on it for reference. That way the art director could later pick a lighting/shooting set-up they liked and I would have a reference for how to precisely recreate it, even weeks later during a re-shoot.DSLR Slate is a brilliant iDevice app with paper-replacing functionality both for still photography shoots and video; as its name suggests, it can take the place of the old-school clacker-style slate.(more...)

Anne Hathaway – ‘When I saw Snooki, I saw my twin’ (9 HQ photos)

(8 years ago)
Anne Hathaway had a dramatic photo shoot for Interview Magazine. The shots were photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and styled by Karl Templer. Everything looks very professional - she is wearing designer items from head to toe. But then she started talking about Jersey Shore and things start to go south. “I like to watch MTV for escapist pleasure, but when I saw Snooki, I saw my twin. I couldn’t lose myself in the show anymore because there I was… That being said, I think JWoww is amazing. I love JWoww. She’s intense. See, JWoww to me is proper Jersey because she will scrap for a friend.”Yikes. Alright, back to her designer clothes... In the top photo, Hathaway rocks out a Dolce & Gabbana dress, a Tom Ford belt, and Maison Michel headband (around neck), and a Bottega Veneta bracelet.

Becoming an Antarctican: Open Canvas, by Arturo Pelayo

(8 years ago)
After almost 30 hours sailing through The Drake Passage, the Sea Spirit arrived to the Southern Ocean. In the early hours of March 8th, amidst the strong wind and heavy cloud coverage in the sky, we got our first glance at the magic continent: glaciers in the distance as far as the eye could see.Through the morning we began to see small icebergs as we approached Melchor Island. Since we had arrived earlier than expected, we were in for a treat and took our first zodiac excursion here. In preparation for our landing we received a briefing about the wildlife on the island as well as instructions on how to conduct ourselves if, say, a leopard seal approached you. In tandem with the precautions we had to take, we were also assigned teams named after Antarctic explorers like Scott, Amundsen and Shackleton. This came after a previous briefing during the crossing of the Drake Passage when we were introduced to the history of these explorers who risked it all.As we neared Melchor Island, we had to go through a bio-security check to remove all dust, debris and possible seeds from our clothing and make sure every single piece of equipment that we took was clean so that we wouldn't introduce foreign particles in the pristine environment of Antarctica. All vessels that come to Antarctica have to take strong measures to ensure that no harm is done to the wildlife and the historical sites.(more...)
