cut and paste chair

with one comment

The Cut & Paste chair by Icelandic furniture designer Sigurdur Gustafsson is an interesting idea, mashing up four different chairs to form a new one. Comfort is in question of course, but whats comfort if you can look chic and fashionable? via dornob

facebook and twitter shoes

Although just a mock-up for now, the scary thing is this seems perfectly possible in the near future. A shoe that twits for you? Location and all? Trembles…. via Gizmodo

søndervangskolen

leave a comment »

Ivan Hvam Hvam has some great, wide ranging work on his site, from restaurants to eyewear. The one that caught my eye was the one for Søndervangskolen, a school in the Netherlands that has apparently suffered from bad reputation that caused a rapid decline in enrollment numbers. The resulting solution is fun, young and exciting, and is a great example showing how design and communication is integral for any business, even more so in education. Plus the logo on the ballon is simple adorable!

Richard Wilkinson has amazing skills in photoshop, rendering lifelike birds for a magazine spread. What’s more amazing is that he generously captured his process in an animated GIF for some unadulterated coolness. (The GIFs are huge so may take a while to load, but completely worth your time. I promise.)

taxing art

leave a comment »

An interesting take on taxes and the government. Design studio Beta Tank have designed a chair with moving panels that transform it from a functional object (on which tax is payable at 19%) to an art object (tax payable at 7%). By deliberately creating an object that is purposefully unusable, the object avoids the high tax rate. via Dezeen
