Bloomberg Pavilion Project

December 8th, 2011

You could argue that the Bloomberg Pavilion Project of the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, is just a fancy white box. That my be true, but I really like. It was designed by Akihisa Hirata.

House NA

October 27th, 2011

I’m pretty sure that his is the weirdest house I’ve ever posted. It was designed by Sou Fujimoto Architects and is located in Tokyo. Just go ahead and watch the video … I just can’t get my head around its structure.

Here’re 3 pieces from Iris van Herpen‘s Capriole collection. I guess they’re more wearable sculptures than fashion.

Time Print Machine

August 4th, 2011

Time Print Machine by Paul Ferragut is a printing system using felt pen on blotting paper.┬áThe felt-pen ink bleed in the paper for a duration relative to the grey value of a pixel. Every “time stain” gradually recreates any images in a pointillist style.┬áThe aim of this project is to emphasize the making process, it can take 20 hours to print one color on a A2 paper.

Thermochromic Clock

July 18th, 2011

You could say that the “Thermochromic Clock” by CW&T looks like any other 4-digit 7-segment timepiece, but this one just works quite different.

Each segment in the display is made with a length of nichrome wire and then covered by a thick layer of black thermochromic paint. Time is displayed by applying voltage to the nichrome wire. As the wire sustains an electric current, it heats up the surrounding thermochromic paint, causing it to become transparent.

I want one.

Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal FW 2011/2012

July 11th, 2011

The biannual Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal collection is one of the few fashion things I’m always looking forward too. It’s always entertaining. So here are my 2 picks of the FW 2011/2012 collection.

A shearling lined parka assembled of 4 backpacks.

If you’re a runner, then you might recognize the pattern on this shirt … it’s the design of the X-Socks Run Speed One. And make sure to have a closer look at the “shoes” in this collection.

One Coffee Cup a Day

July 1st, 2011

One Coffee Cup a Day is a project by Bernat Cuni. He designed 30 variations of the classic espresso coffee cup during 30 days. The cool thing about this, is the fact that you can actually buy them. When you order one, it will be printed 3D in glazed ceramics by Shapeways. Unfortunately there are only 3D renderings of the designs, it would have been interesting to see the real 3D ceramic product.
