Arizona Muse | Vogue Paris October 2011

(8 years ago)
Advertise here with BSAThe almost aristocratic Arizona Muse appears in a gaudy, rather tasteless jewelry editorial styled by Suzanne Koller for Vogue Paris October 2011. If Carine Roitfeld was behind the editorial, we would take the Inez & Vinoodh images as a tongue-in-cheeck, intellectual poke at conspicuous consumption.

Hell in a Handbasket: Ikea's Manland

(8 years ago)
Ikea has converted the Boyfriend Bench into a fully furnished space. Earlier this month the Ikea in Sydney, Australia ran a four-day trial of Manland, a short-term area for males to park themselves while the missus goes shopping unfettered by the unfortunate modern syndrome of Male Whining. Something like a G-rated Man Cave, Manland is stocked with issues of GQ, free hot dogs, X-Boxes, the game on the telly, and gaming tables both electronic and analog. In the past week, Manland has gotten tons of international positive press. Am I the only one who thinks this idea reeks of the sad and self-willing infantilization of the modern male? The title of this video on YouTube is "Ikea Introduces Nursery for Men." Perhaps they should hang a gigantic pair of shiny car keys from the ceiling while a servo arm makes it dangle and jangle.Years ago men were supposed to be able to withstand hardship and provide. That meant doing things like going out in crappy weather and performing hard manual labor. But nowadays we're too soft to stroll through a climate-controlled environment lined with soft things to sit on without arguing with our wives. Hell in a handbasket, folks.(more...)

Build a Better Business--with Lego

(8 years ago)
Tired of Chris-Farley-like motivational speakers botching Trust Falls in the conference room? Here's a different way to build a better team at work: Lego Serious Play.Lego Serious Play is a methodology that's been around since the '90s and seeks to enhance business performance through group exercises based around the titular bricks:The underlying values of LEGO SERIOUS PLAY include the belief in the potential of people, and also the belief that everyone within an organization can contribute to the discussion, solutions, and outcomes....Building landscape models with LEGO bricks, giving them meaning through storymaking, and playing-out various possible scenarios, deepens understanding, sharpens insight, and socially "bonds" together the group who "plays" together. Participants come away with increased confidence and more committed to the shared and common goals.At first I wasn't sure if this was for real, but they've got a website explaining the concept (and listing testimonials) here, and this morning I came across an article on Kamal Hassan, a Dubai-based business executive who's a certified Trained Lego Serious Play Facilitator. "Adult play, when it is structured correctly as the Lego Serious Play methodology demonstrates, frees our imagination and makes us more open to possibilities," says Hassan. "It also improves communication, especially among teams, by giving everyone a safe way to express their opinions."(more...)

For full details on the project, jury commenting and more information about the awards program, go to Core77DesignAwards.comDesigner: Teal Triggs, InstructorLocation: London, United KingdomCategory: Design Education initiativesAward: NotableSeeing Voices: Inside BT ArchivesA unique collaboration between BT Heritage staff and students from MA Design Writing Criticism, LCC, in the use of specialist archives as an integrated teaching method for design writing and curation. Students selected an object from the communications archive to research and interpret resulting in a publication and exhibition.BT is the world's oldest communication company, with a direct line of descent from the first electric telegraph to present day digital technologies. The challenge was to provide a fresh perspective on BT's extensive collection ranging from products (e.g. telephones, merchandising products, buildings, phone boxes), to print (e.g. advertising and poster campaigns, in-house magazines) and photographs. The collaboration was intended to show that: 1) MA Design Writing Criticism students could bring the collection to the attention of a new kind of audience, 2) the seven students could develop their skills via written and visual interpretation of the material, thereby bringing new perspectives to the interpretation of the archive, and 3) by fostering a shared learning[..]

Inside GM's Rapid Prototyping Labs

(8 years ago)
These videos are about twice as long as they need to be in terms of conveying the relevant data, but these looks inside General Motors' Rapid Prototyping Labs are worth a gander. Anyone who's worked in an ID firm where you had to e-mail the CADs out to the modelshop and sit on your hands for two days can't help but feel envious at seeing their onsite stereolithography and selective laser sintering machines. The editors have blurred out some of what's on the designers' monitors and some of the larger physical parts, as GM has apparently worked out a proprietary method for joining RP parts together, like when they need to produce something too big for the machine and have to bang it out in sections. Still, you at least get a good look at the process:(more...)

Time-Lapse Footage, from the Heavens to Hell

(8 years ago)
Early photography was used for one thing: To freeze time. You've probably heard the story of how in 1872, California Governor Leland Stanford hired early photographer Eadweard Muybridge to capture still shots of a galloping horse to settle the bet of whether all four feet would ever be simultaneously in the air.Nowadays we increasingly blend photography into time-lapse footage, with a goal opposite to freezing time: We try to blend discrete moments into fast-forwarded video, greatly increasing the speeds at which an event appears to unfold. In 30 YouTube seconds puppies turn five years older, dieters get skinnier, you go through a season's worth of outfits. As it once titillated 19th-Century folk to see something in motion frozen still, we now get a kick of seeing frozen moments advanced into rapid motion.Here are three of the most recent time-lapse vids to catch my eye, in order of grandeur:(more...)
