Adidas is going to release a Stan Smith City Series, one of them is Brussels! It has the Atomium on it! Let’s hope that my local dealer next doors, the adidas originals store, is going to carry them too!

This video, "The Information Machine: Creative Man And The Data Processor", was written, produced and directed by Charles and Ray Eames for the IBM Pavillion at the 1958 Brussels World's Fair. It shows the history of storing and analyzing information from the days of the cavemen to today's age of electronic brains. You can read more on it at Cartoon Modern.

This is probably not really that interesting if you don’t speak Dutch or Flemish to be more precise. Ja! is a campaign for the Belgian socialist party sp.a for the upcoming elections in June. It’s all about being positive, ja means yes. So here is a TVC that aired on national TV tonight.

It's hilarious! There are more spots on youtube. Group94 did an accompanying website, where you can leave your own positive message. The agency behind it all is Mortierbrigade.

On a side note, I'll do something illegal ... I won't vote in June, indeed voting is obligatory in Belgium. I just can't ... I registered to vote at the Belgian embassy in Berlin back in January when there wasn't a date defined. I won't be in Berlin on June 9th, I'll be in Belgium on holiday. Catch me if you can, Belgium!

Wim DelvoyeThis is THE fashion accessory for this summer! It will be all over Paris and Milan.
Ok, not. It’s only a stuffed tattooed pig by the Belgian artist Wim Delvoye. He did tattoo some alive pigs some years ago in China where the animal rights aren’t that strict as in Europe.

In my opinion this chair called Folder is a true classic in Belgian design. Designed by Stefan Schöning for Polyline.

Gaston Lagaffe

February 28th, 2007

Gaston Lagaffe turns 50 today! I actually know him as Guust Flater, one of Belgiums most famous cartoon characters. He was my idol when I was young. Guust is a true product designer, he invented hundreds of cool machines during his days at work, maybe that’s why I studied product design afterall.
He is notorious for parking where it wasn’t allowed. He tried every trick to convince the policeman that he was right to park there, the policemans catchline was “Is this a forbidden to park sign or is it a lollipop?”. One time he modified the sign into a big lollipop …
To celebrate his birthday, the city of Brussels decided that everybody can park for free today. What a nice gesture.

Last year I saw pictures of the streetart by Mark Jenkins called Meterpops. I’m not sure if he was inspired by Guust, I bet they have the same style of humour.
