Finally, Someone Finds a Perfectly Good (and Completely Entrancing) Use for Packing Peanuts - Core77 - 23-04-2014

Swiss artist Zimoun has put thousands of packing peanuts (or, "chips," as he refers to them) to work in a mesmerizing installation that's sure to put you in a trance. His newest installation, "36 Ventilators, 4.7m3 Packing Chips," lives inside of the Museo d'Arte di Lugano in Switzerland and depends on 36 fans (which are, of course, continuously blowing) to keep the cycle going. Even though you may not have the time (or funds) to make it over to Switzerland to see this one for yourself,...

From Scrap Metal to Stunning Knives: Polish Knifemaker Trollskyy Shows Us How it's Done with a Jeep Leaf Spring - Core77 - 23-04-2014

The newest video from Polish knifemaker Trollskyy couldn't have come at a better time, considering Earth Day has barely passed us by. "I love to make something out of nothing," he mentions on his YouTube page—well said considering his designs feature abandoned metal scraps. Trollskyy's most recent YouTube upload follows the process of a knife he made from the leaf spring off of an old Jeep. The end result is a dangerous-looking blade that bears no resemblance to its past life. Take a look: The Lord of the Rings-esque music just adds...

For Minority-Report-like Interface, Just Add Water. Or Actually, Fog - Core77 - 23-04-2014

I'm definitely among those who have been waiting for Minority Report-like gesturing to become a reality. While light beams on desks and walls seems close, it's not our hands manipulating objects in thin air. But now researchers at the University of Bristol have developed the starting point, called MisTable. And they're doing it with mist. Words will only fail to properly describe the look of this thing, but a tabletop computer system projects images onto a thick blanket of fog. They appear as ghostly apparitions, much like R2D2's projected Princess Leia. We...

Reinventing the Wheel Shoe: Introducing, Pungas - Core77 - 23-04-2014

Lately, I've felt that most products, from cars to headphones, have employed the marketing tactic of releasing limited or special editions. The crazy fact of the matter is that people buy it because they like knowing they are part of a small circle who are privileged enough to own it. I am no stranger to the envy of walking into class with my new shoes, only to have my victory walk ruined my seeing someone else with the same pair. Exclusivity is a powerful tool to sell a pair of Air Yeezy 2's...

Category winners are announced for the Designs of the Year 2014 - Wallpaper - 23-04-2014

Zaha Hadid, Konstantin Grcic and Miuccia Prada are amongst the heavyweights slugging it out for this year's Designs of the Year award. London's Design Museum today announced the seven category winners of its annual survey of design excellence, with Grcic again taking the furniture gong, this time for his PRO family of chairs, designed to keep children moving while sat in class. Apparently a good thing.

Fire, Music, Tech: An Audio Visualizer to End All Audio Visualizers - Core77 - 22-04-2014

Fire and heavy electronic beats may not be the first things you'd associate with a children's classroom lesson. The team at science/tech blog Veritasium met with a group of "physics and chemistry demonstrators" that combined all three in an audio visualizer they tour around to help demonstrate the shape and intensity of various sound waves. Turns out it's just as cool for adults as it is for the kiddos. By creating a pyro board of Ruben's Tubes—essentially rows of Bunsen burners (see above)—that moonlights as a sound board,...

Making School Furniture Beautiful: The Bouroullecs' Copenhague Line for Hay - Core77 - 22-04-2014

You don't think of big-name designers doing furniture for schools, but Danish furniture brand Hay scored Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to do their line for the University of Copenhagen. The resultant Copenhague line is a handsome blend of wooden desks, tables, chairs, and stools, some stackable. And in a nod to modern needs, the tables and desks featuring bent plywood provide a slot where the dual surfaces meet, intended for power cables to be routed through. (more...)
