London Design Week 2011 Preview: "Flower" & "Melt" Chairs by Philipp Aduatz

(8 years ago)
Viennese designer Philipp Aduatz recently completed his Ph.D. in Natural Sciences, but it doesn't take an advanced degree to see the strong sense of organic form that inspires and informs his work.Aduatz will be presenting a couple of new chair designs at Tent London, at the Old Truman Brewery in East London from September 22–25: "Melting Chair," which "captures a transient transformation within a sculptural object," and the "Flower Chair," a further exploration of a theme that Aduatz has explored in the past.Glass fiber-reinforced polymer with a silver coating and scratch resistant polyurethane lacquerThe "Melting chair" represents Aduatz's attempt to capture an otherwise ephemeral state of transition—"either as a solid chair melting away or as a solidification of a liquid melt"—when a material "seems utterly fragile and filled with fascinating possibilities at the same time."(more...)

Benjamin Lai, Part 4: Learning the Art, the Hard Way, from Monsieur Van der Kelen

(8 years ago)
Just as there are certain types of marble you cannot get anymore, Ben Lai received a type of training that is now technically impossible to come by. He was part of the last class to learn decorative painting at the Van der Kelen school under Monsieur Van der Kelen himself, who sadly fell ill the following year and passed away.In Core77's final interview with Lai, he provides us with a rare look inside the school and its training methods of the time and recounts a shattering, if ultimately formative, experience that many creatives will recognize.Core77: So where we left off in Part 3: That morning in 1994 you woke up in Brussels not knowing if you'd be admitted to the Van der Kelen School. Now it's later that same morning, you've been selected, and you're officially a student wearing a white smock.Benjamin Lai: Yeah. And classes began that same morning, so the group of us that were selected went into the studio space and started right up.Can you describe the studio space?It was a huge, dark, cavernous, loft-like space. It felt a little like a laboratory, or like some lost room in a castle. It also felt kind of like going to a mechanic's garage, like going to get the oil changed in your car: Dark and dreary and dirty and cold, just like that. I have some photos I took with ISO 3200 film so you can actually see the space. In reality it appeared a lot darker than what you see in the photos.The room was crowded with these huge, hulking easels, maybe seven or eight feet high,[..]

Core77 Design Award 2011: Skype in the Classroom, Notable for Service Design

(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: Made By ManyLocation: London, UKCategory: Service DesignAward: NotableSkype in the ClassroomSkype in the classroom is a free, global community to help teachers use Skype to help their students learn. It's a place for teachers to connect, find partner classes and share inspiration, and was created in response to the growing number of teachers using Skype in their classrooms.We were interested in identifying what teachers wanted and needed from the service, and aimed to help them to make these discoveries themselves. For example, what began as a simple directory of teachers developed into a service based around profiles and projects, with easily navigable interactive maps. Only when our particular process of simple prototyping and repeat iterations was complete did we ask teachers to bring their stories back into the project. While changes were made as a result of our testing, we were keen to maintain a light touch throughout, allowing the teachers' ideas to take centre stage. So, as well as looking at the client's expectations, we set out to listen to Skype's audience from the start - after all, if the teachers tell us what they want quickly, then we can deliver it quickly - and if they get what they want, they will continue to[..]

A Sinch solution for Headphone Cord Chaos

(8 years ago)
We were excited to receive a neat little package from the folks at frog today previewing Sinch, a new magnetic solution for the madness of headphone cord chaos. A survey on any given day in New York City's subways reveals two main schools of thought when coming to storage of those pesky in-ear headphones: the wrapper and the stuffer. Wrappers carefully coil their headphone wires around their mobile devices only to return to a mess of tangles. Stuffers typically bury headphones in sidepockets and backpockets—I've witnessed innumerable stuffers fishing out headphones and unwittingly dredging up pens, packs of gum, jewelry and change from the dark depths of their bags.frog has created a simple and straightforward design—an elastic band with a stretch-able hole to attach to the base plug and a set of magnets that keep the tangle of cords manageable and neat. The nice thing about Sinch is that you can feed all your wrapper urges by using your device as the core of the cord management system—when the headphones are plugged in, the cords are wrapped around the device and secured into place with the magnetized ends of the Sinch. For all those stuffers, you can unplug your headphones from your mobile device after wrapping and stuff your bundled headphones into the dark place of your liking.My only concern is that as a user with a thicker L-shaped base plug, the elastic hole on the Sinch bulges, taking away from the sleek aesthetic of the overall design.

Ben Wilson's "Pocket Rocket 2" at V&A's Power of Making Exhibition

(8 years ago)
London-based industrial designer Ben Wilson of the Wilson Brothers is at least as passionate about contemporary bicycle design as we are, between his collaborations with the likes of Brooks and Rapha and his art projects such as the "4H."His latest work, the "Pocket Rocket 2"—a collaboration with goldleaf specialists Melliard's—falls somewhere between the two disciplines: it's a sort of miniature cycle with handpainted details and 20” wheels. While the stylized goldleaf mimics lugs, they're actually painted over the fillet-brazed joins.For PR2 we collaborated with Melliard's modern pinstriping and lettering to create a paint scheme inspired by traditional bicycle lugs. Butting up to the hand fillet brazed steel frame, they hand applied 23 carat gold (machine turned) leaf accents to emphasize the honest workmanship that went into building the bicycle. We used 20” wheels with 2 speed kick back SA brakes and to top it off, a one off hand tooled Wilson/roofer special Brooks saddle!Other features of the "ongoing investigation for the ultimate urban bicycle" include a pursuit-style top tube, fully integrated (i.e. brazed-on) seatpost and saddle, and integrated cockpit, which means that the geometry is completely fixed... though it still looks a bit more comfortable (and conventional) than, say, Joey Ruiter's take on the very same "ongoing investigation."More detail & process photos after the jump...(more...)

Why are the Back to the Future Kicks Called Nike MAGs?

(8 years ago)
The sneakerworld is abuzz with news of the 2011 Nike MAG, modeled after the self-lacing kicks Michael J. Fox wore in Back to the Future 2. Only 1,500 pairs are being made, sold exclusively through eBay, with the net proceeds going to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.The MAGs are physically modeled after the ones in the movie, though sadly, they lack the cool self-lacing feature; there are rumors that a Nike exec has hinted that it'll be available in 2015, but it's not clear whether he was joking or not, as that was the year the movie took place.Why, you ask, are they called the MAGs? The original technician who worked on the sneakers actually seen in the movie gave the story to Sneaker News:(more...)

The organization works to harness the power of the creative community to affect a better urban experience, imagining a better future for our cities. As this year's city-wide design programming reflects (most notably the New Museum Festival of Ideas for a New City, this week's Urban Week Festival, the Municipal Arts Society's Annual Summit on Livability and Archtober Architecture and Design Month New York City) there is an urgent call for organizations like desigNYC to help heighten public perception, understanding and participation in the making of our city. desigNYC's method: connect civic-minded designers with extraordinary nonprofits, community groups and city agencies serving the public good. desigNYC does it with people in mind and with hands-on, long-term projects, on the ground. Not too much talking, lots of doing. Not too much glamour, but real, deep, collaborative changes.desigNYC's annual exhibition+party celebrates the results to date of these passionate collaborations.
