Dispatchwork is project by Jan Vormann where he fills up holes in walls with Lego bricks. He did this before in Bocchignano, a village close to Rome, and Tel Aviv. This time he did in Berlin, where he and many spontaneous helpers filled World War II bullet holes at a building of Humbold University. You can find some other patched walls around town too.
He also has a exhibition at the Jarmuschek + Partner gallery in Berlin till June 13th.

“Saving Space Vase” by Joe Velluto. After molding the initial form, pressure is applied to it to obtain this dented look. The vase is inspired by how we compact empty plastic bottles.
Rotational Moulding is an industrial production technique, used for creating many hollow plastic objects. Marloes ter Bhömer is a Dutch designer based in London, who took this technique to produce this shoe. I guess this is more some sort of conceptual exercise than a real product idea.
You can go and see this project, among many others, at the exhibition Brit Insurance Designs of the Year 2009 at the Design Museum in London till the 14th of June.
This video shows you how the Rotational Moulded Machine tumbles (without a mould though).
I saw Tom Price his PP Blue Rope Meltdown Chair for the first time over a year ago when he presented it during the Salone del Mobile in Milan. Apparently he made more variations of the initial chair with different materials. The production technique is quite simple. You take a pile of some sort of plastic, then you press a very hot metal seat in it and you’re done. These ones are made with fleece clothing. Excellent!
