Form That Follows Geometry, Literally

(7 years ago)
Earlier this week, we took a look at a numero-morphic desk lamp by Pieter Desmijter under the Aldentro moniker. Of course, the digit-shaped lamp was less a comment on the digital age than a homage to Bauhaus, and Desmijter's furniture designs follow in form (and, by extension, function)."Square Root" is a literal take on geometric inspiration: it's a small-ish coffee table with a radical gash, taking its silhouette from the mathematical operation of the same name. The isosceles incision serves as a storage area for traditional print media. (more...)

Core77 Design Award 2011: Draw, Student Notable for Speculative Objects/Concepts

(7 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: Arttu-Matti ImmonenLocation: Kyoto, JapanCategory: Speculative Objects/ConceptsAward: Student NotableDrawThe Draw project is a study on the subject of cross generational communication. It is a concept that relies on the natural communication tools between the young and the elderly.I am really interested in finding out natural ways of doing the chores of a daily life. In this project I wanted to see if it's possible to challenge the existing methods of wireless communication. The target group was set to be the seniors and their grand children. I wanted to find a simple and easy to understand form of interacting. Drawing is an universal communication tool that especially children take great pride in when they succeed in creating a picture after tirelessly putting a lot of effort in it. This will to show and share their original works made me think of a way to bring the hobby of drawing to the 21st century's wireless world.Core77: What's the latest news or development with your project?To be brutally honest as the project was a self-initiated short term design exercise, the concept hasn't really taken off in any sense nor was it meant to do so. That being said I wish to return to it in some shape at some point in the future. For[..]

Hoping Apple Keeps Design a Top Priority

(7 years ago)
Of the torrent of articles and blog posts following Steve Jobs' resignation announcement, I've found few worth reading, filled as they are with rampant speculation; but this Bloomberg article by Peter Burrows caught my eye. Although the somewhat sensationalist title "Jobs Departure Puts Product Pressure on Ive" is never really backed up with demonstrable facts, Burrows' analysis of the situation does scratch my ID itch by pointing out that Apple's uniquely high support for design is crucial to the company's success.Burrows sketches out the presumed work relationship had by Jobs and Ive, gets opinions from former Apple design head Robert Brunner, and points out that "While industrial design is seen as cost to be minimized at many companies, Ive has latitude to specify features that require his team and Apple's hardware engineers to create new production techniques...Ive is known to travel to Asia for weeks, studying intricacies of metal-bending equipment."I won't cite some of the more spectacular claims made in the article for fear of flame-fanning, but overall the article's certainly worth a read.(more...)

San Francisco-based product designer Fernando A. Robert launched his first shoe accessory / storage solution, the "Shrine Sneaker Rack," two years ago.

The intention of the Shrine Sneaker Rack is to highlight the very best details of your perfectly preserved footwear... All Shrine Racks are made in the US and include the mounting hardware for proudly creating your place of worship.Robert is back with another, more versatile footwear storage design, the second product he's designed for his independent venture studioFAR. Like the sneaker rack, the "Shrine Shoe Rack" is also designed to display of one's most coveted footwear—up to three pairs—on a wall. "It was designed to support all types of footwear like sneakers (both hi-tops and low tops), along with women's high heels and flats. This shoe rack is ideal for small city apartments, it gets your shoes off the floor and neatly on the wall."(more...)
