Thomas Lamadieu Blurs the Line Between Photography and Illustration in 'Skyart' - Core77 - 19:45

While some may call a clear, blue sky art enough, French artist Thomas Lamadieu might say otherwise. In fact, he might call it a blank canvas. His ongoing series, Skyart, takes the blank spaces between buildings and turns them into illustrated wonderlands filled with bearded inhabitants and imaginary animals. His illustrations started out as line drawings lacking any intense detail (see below) and have grown more cartoonish with his recent pieces. It would (almost) be easy to mistake some of his...

Wallpaper* & Volvo: On the road - Wallpaper - 17:32

Craft, care and attention to detail are synonymous with the Swedish approach to product design. Volvo’s ongoing journey towards a new era of design and technology keeps these Scandinavian qualities close, and nowhere is this better exemplified than through the materials, forms and processes that have gone into its triptych of cutting-edge concept cars. Robin Page, Volvo’s interior design director, joined the company after playing a major role in some of the world’s most luxurious automotive brands. Page understands the importance of materials, quality and detail in conveying a premium feel. His task, has been to showcase the company’s...

When an App Won't Do: Designing a Timer - Core77 - 17:00

Timers might not sound like an organizing product—but as a professional organizer, I recommend them to my clients all the time. They're great for overcoming procrastination; end-users can set the timer for 15 minutes and do some dreaded task for just that amount of time. Or they might set the timer for 20 minutes and make sure, when it goes off, that they are still on task. And, of course, timers are useful when cooking and baking, or performing any task where keeping track of time is critical. Yes, many of us carry timers around with...

A Modular Jacket Design - Core77 - 15:00

Can a single jacket be all things to all people? Of course not, but perhaps a single jacket design could be all things to all fisherman. A Japanese company called Mountain Research has developed this "Phishing Hoody," which at its core is simply a hooded vest: But by adding removeable sleeves and a variety of extensions, the user can make the jacket longer or shorter, and choose pocket styles based on the gear they'll be carrying that day.

Holy Cow: NASA Says Pollution from Asia is Affecting North American Weather - Core77 - 13:00

Had the Industrial Revolution never happened, there'd still be doctors, lawyers, farmers and merchants—but there darn sure wouldn't be any industrial designers. It's a bit of a shame that the event that enabled our very profession caused such widespread pollution, but we didn't understand the environmental effects back then, and even if we did it wouldn't have stopped men like Carnegie and Loewy. Now that we are grasping the environmental effects of pollution, what we're learning is staggering. A new study published this week posits that pollution from Asia's industrial boom is affecting the weather in...

Friendly Architecture, a Climbing-Gym-Turned-Coworking-Space and Young Talent: Our Favorite Moments from PSFK 2014 - Core77 - 09:00

All photos by Catalina Kulczar-Marin Like with any other conference aimed at sparking innovation and creativity, you're going to leave the event with too much information to process. (Moan and groan about buzzwords all you want, but at the end of the day "inspired" is the only way to describe it.) Which, of course, were my feelings concerning PSFK 2014, a one-day conference titled "Connecting the Unexpected." On April 11, the staff of PSFK hosted an auditorium full of marketers, designers, entrepreneurs and other creative types at the Museum of...

Milan 2014: 'Taste of an Object' Offers a 12-Course Tasting Menu of Polish Pomeranian Design - Core77 - 04:00

It's never a perfect analogy, but it can be interesting when it comes close enough: Attempting to translate one creative discipline into another is, to mutilate the metaphors, more difficult than turning water into wine—rather, the old saying regarding "dancing about architecture" comes to mind. For Milan Design Week 2014, the Centrum Designu Gdynia ambitiously sought to distill a dozen products by Polish Pomeranian designers into culinary delights. Although the concept itself was executed to varying degrees of success, "Taste of an Object" offered a nice twist on the tried-and-true local design showcase. Taking...

Put a Bird on It: Get Lost in Juan Fontanive's Motorized Flip Books Featuring Audubon Illustrations - Core77 - 16-04-2014

You may not see much of your well-worn childhood flip books past the age of 10—or maybe even younger thanks to the intrigue of more developed, tech-savvy toys. Juan Fontanive has something to say about that. His series of motorized flip books feature lifted images from Audubon guides that loop through colorful images of birds and illustrations of butterflies. The tiny sculptures-gone-film-art are made up of mixture of miniature gears, sprockets, clips, nuts, bolts and wormwheels. The result is an oddly soothing, page-flipping loop. Check out his newest compilations in action: "Ornithology S."(more...)
