London Design Festival 2011: "Scaffolding Brut" at V&A

(8 years ago)
Why do we give something so ubiquitous so little designerly love? "Scaffolding Brut" is an inspiring installation put together by Berlin-based BetaTank, asking this very question. The Germans offer a selection of playful "temporary scaffolding accessories" including birdhouses, plant pots and even a porcelain radio. More of a call to arms than a fully formed solution, the installation leaves you wondering, if most of our cities are covered in the stuff, why isn't scaffolding more of a feature of urban life, than the scourge of it. The project hopes to answer questions posed by BetaTank:"If scaffolding systems are so impressive without design specifications, how utterly magnificent could they become if the need for beauty was attributed to construction?" And, "given the fact that they cover large sections of any given city, rather than getting in the way, could scaffolding assist accessibility and mobility?"(more...)

Two Better Bottle-Holding Designs

(8 years ago)
Because of the way my 'fridge is configured, when I store a six-pack of beer in its vertical position, I can't pull out the back four bottles without hitting the bottom of the shelf above them. So I usually stack them horizontally, but the pyramid tends to slide apart when I remove a bottle. This is one of those minor life annoyances that I never gave much thought to—until I spotted the solution: ModeStudio's Fridge Monkey, a simple rubber mat that lets you securely stack both cans and bottles.For the champagne and hard-liquor drinking set, a better way to keep that bottle icy without sticking it directly in a bottle of ice cubes is Drainscoop's Bottle Bucket, made from aluminum coated with acrylic.

Core77 Design Award 2011: TikTok + LunaTik Watch Kits, Runner-Up for Products/Equipment

Obsessively designed and crafted from premium materials, TikTok+LunaTik complement the impeccable quality of Apple products.TikTok+LunaTik were born out of a personal passion for watches and timepieces but quickly captured the imagination of thousands around the planet via viral awareness and the crowd-funding platform. We assumed that there were enough Apple fans and tech geeks out there that had been dreaming of the "Dick Tracy watch" that we could justify a small production run. And we wanted to create products for the discerning Apple consumer and not just create a cheap accessory product as an afterthought. This was the driving force behind choosing to make this an in-studio experimental project and one that would not require us to compromise on the quality of manufacturing, retail, distribution by taking on an investor.Of course, we also had to think about how to manufacture LunaTik in precision aluminum and at a cost that was within reason. The design was intentionally constructed from two identical axially[..]

Core77 Photo Gallery: How Cork is Made

(8 years ago)
Brooklyn-based designer and educator Daniel Michalik specializes in working with cork. Obsessed with finding new ways to shape the material, he spent a week traveling around Portugal to document how cork is made from the independent harvesting farms in Alentejo, to the factories of the countries largest cork manufacture Amorim where all the scrap material is used as biomass fuel to power the plants.300,000 tons of cork is produced globally every year and 52.5% of this comes from Portugal. Harvesting a crop can only happen once every nine years. It's critical to peel the bark off carefully as damaging the new layer underneath will destroy the trees value, highly skilled workers use a special axe called the Machada and can strip a tree in about 10 minutes.Checkout our gallery to see how wine bottle cork stoppers are made (representing about 60% of all cork based production), sheet material for flooring, and the molding of dark cork insulation blocks. And stay tuned for Daniels in depth look at cork manufacturing on the blog in the next few next weeks.» View Gallery: How Cork is MadeDaniel Michalik pictured in his Bushwick studio demonstrating a technique he uses to create 3D forms from layers of sheet cork material.

London Design Festival 2011: "A Pylon for the Future" at V&A

(8 years ago)
Also on display at the V&A in London this week, is a selection of design proposals for electricity pylons. Not the most glamourous of subjects, perhaps, but serious food for thought for industrial designers.The design of the humble British pylon has barely changed from Sir Reginald Bloom's 1927 design. An icon of technological progress to some; an ugly scar on the countryside to others; the British National Grid predict—what with the development of technology, and perhaps even an eventual switch to electric cars—that we will need more pylons rather than less in the coming years.(more...)

Coroflot Genius Gallery - Final Countdown

(8 years ago)
This marks the second-to-last edition of the Coroflot Genius Gallery. We've seen hundreds of amazing portfolios over the past three months, often to the extent that our running list of our top picks seems to grow faster than we can feature them. (Worst case, if you were shortlisted but didn't make the final cut, we'll consider your portfolio or thumbnails for a feature in our member gallery or our regular featured portfolio page.)This week was no exception, and while it skewed towards Core's focus on industrial design, the likes of James Zanoni and Tina Kugler make for a nice mix of work across the board.Jesse Den Herder (Central Lake, Michigan) - Jesse's packaging and identity work comes across best through his board game creations.James Zanoni (New York, New York) - James is a motion graphics whiz, and both his graphic and video work demonstrate his mastery of digital special effects.Narayan Subramaniam (Ahmedabad, India) - Narayan comes up with some speedy-looking vehicle designs.
