Photographer Phillip Stearns produced a collection of woven and knit blankets using images generated from short circuited cameras as pattern sources.
Vases present flowers as a one dimensional opbject, often obscuring the equally beautiful but oft over looked views, like the bottom and the back of the blooms. Giorgia Zanellato’s Narcisco Vases transform a single stalk of flowers into a kaleidoscopic work of art, allowing the viewer to appreciate the flowers from all angles, all at once.
An ultra adorable Little Printer, designed by BERG, is meant to serve as an analog RSS feed, printing out news and updates from your own BERGcloud. Set to launch in 2012 with partners Arup, foursquare, Google, the Guardian, and Nike. Using the iPhone as a remote to the device, I am keen to see how well this is customisable to integrate with the current services that we are all using. (ahem, facebook, ahem).
This is so adorable and appropriate for my desk. I want/need/crave/lust one!
Falling Whistle is an online journal trumpeting for peace in Congo, and retails posters and these beautiful whistles as a source of funds for the project, as well as encouraging advocates to wear them loud and proud.
Falling Whistles gives a small window into our world’s largest war. Originally just a journal written about boys sent to the frontlines of war armed with only a whistle, readers forwarded it with the same kind of urgency in which it was written and demanded to know – what can we do?
The Falling Whistles campaign launched with a simple response – make their weapon your voice and be a whistleblower for peace in Congo. Read the story and buy the whistle. Together we partner with local leaders to advocate and rehabilitate for those affected by war. Share their story and speak up for them.
Together, we’ll become the voice of a growing coalition for peace in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
I am a huge fan of twelve south, having used their BookArc for the longest time, and lusting over the BackPack and MagicWand. Their latest stroke of genius is also known as the PlugBug, a ‘parasitic’ device to latch onto your MacBook power brick and gives it an additional USB charger port for all your other iDevices. Yums!Read More
