Stone Field 00, 2014
Italian designer Giuseppe Randazzo of Novastructura just finished his series “Stone Fields” : sculptures created digitally and made thanks to 3D printing. Produced by Shapeways, these 3D sculptures in polyamide gather little stones painted in grey and placed in order to show patterns and graduation in a circular shape. via fubiz.net
Scape House – Shiga, Japan, 2014
A collection of differently sized cuboids make up the volume of this family house in Shiga, Japan, designed by architect Kouichi Kimura to offer “versatile spaces” with “light and scenery”.
Kouichi Kimura, founder of Japanese studio FORM, developed the residence for a hilltop neighbourhood overlooking a lake, so he wanted the interiors to frame curated views of the scenic surroundings. via dezeen.com
Bronze Age, 2014
“As a reaction to the unstoppable digitalisation and virtualisation of all our basic needs, all the way to love and friendship, I feel an urge to produce work that is antagonistic to this trend.’ Says Frank Tjepkema, lead designer and founder of dutch studio Tjep. Set within the historic and ornately decorated ballroom of the colloredo mansfeld palace in prague, Tjep. Presents the bronze age collection for Designblok Prague 2014, with designboom in attendance. The series embodies both sculptural and utilitarian principles: stability, strength, durability and sustainability, in that it can be melted and reused. each sensually formed piece is a manually intensive work, formed from the very material that represents the dawn of civilization: bronze. via designboom.com
The Mister is an Internet-of-Things device that improves the efficiency of residential A/C units by up to 30%. The resulting increase in capacity allows the system to cool the home more quickly each cycle, as well as consume less power while operating. Comprised of a group of engineers formerly in the oil industry, The Mister bucks the local trend by offering a product that allows homeowners to decrease their carbon footprint, and save money in the process.

Netflix wants to put content in people’s lives, wherever they want, whenever they want, and in the way they want. Ogilvy creates the first digital outdoor campaign made entirely with reaction GIFs and cleverly puts all the benefits of looking forward to coming home to Netflix into an engaging out of home GIF campaign. Reactive GIFs are designed and managed to be relevantly in context to its viewer’s physical or emotional situation.

We always need to buy clothes, either as a necessity or simply by desire. Each piece of clothing has its own maintenance requirements depending on the types of fibers used. Some fibers are too delicate for the washing machine or dryer and in some cases, both. Some may shrink, fade or start pilling – fluffy fiber balls formed by friction over time. Do you sometimes buy clothing in a larger size in order to avoid any future problems? Do you abstain from certain fabrics to avoid these issues? Do not worry, because this article will give you the proper knowledge to avoid these situations. You will once again be able to enjoy both fabrics and colors.
Que ce soit par nécessité ou par désir, nous avons tous besoin d’acheter, un jour ou l’autre, des vêtements. Fabriqué avec de multiples fibres, chaque vêtement a son entretien. Certaines fibres ne tolèrent pas la laveuse ou la sécheuse et parfois même les deux. Certaines rétrécissent, déteintes ou boulochent – boules de fibres pelucheuses formées par frottement ou usure du tissu. Afin d’éviter tout problème, vous arrive-t-il d’acheter vos vêtements plus grands? Condamnez-vous certaines matières afin de ne pas regretter votre achat après l’entretien? Ne vous en faites plus. Après cet article, vous n’aurez plus peur d’oser les matières et les couleurs.
