After the great Chicago Blizzard of 2011, hundreds of thousands of pounds of snow were removed from the city’s downtown streets. Loaded by bulldozers and heavy trucks, much of it was piled in the empty lot between our studio and the railroad tracks.
In a collaborative effort between Coudal Partners and The Explorers of the New World Society, an expedition was immediately formed. A bold assault was launched aiming to have our team be the first men to summit this peak. Known for their dexterity and grit, Dawson and Matt were selected for the dangerous undertaking. This is their story.
Sick, sick, sickly brilliant David Shrigley is a British visual artist with a mordant sense of humor that really appeals to me. Check out some of my favorite animations below and other sick stuff here.
Simply stunning ‘jewellery collars’ made in leather and raw silk by Eleven Objects.
Eleven Objects was started when Linh Thi Do and Christine Rhee simultaneously decided that their wardrobes would be vastly improved by a different kind of accessory.
Linh Thi Do previously worked in product development at TSE and Alexander Wang. She studied biology and fine arts at Rice University and then received her Associates degree in fashion design at Parsons School of Design.
Christine Rhee studied architecture at Princeton University. She designed her eponymous line CRHEE, which was featured in Marie Claire, WWD, and Teen Vogue and has also worked as a marketing coordinator for BOYY.
Fall/winter 2011 is the first season for Eleven Objects.
Art Lebedev has done it yet again, creating a subversive yet totally want-able product in the form of a cardboard USB stick. Has something to pass to a friend you never want to see again? Tear one off, scribble on it and pass it off. You never have to worry about getting it back. I’ll take mine in a roll please. Thanks.
The construction industry suffers from one of the highest work-related accidents across the board with nearly 60% of those injured having to leave indefinitely. The H3 is a vest with integrated accumulators on the back and supporting arm. The design improves physical efficiency using artificial muscle technology. It’s meant to assist the human operator, not replace him/her.
When I find myself having trouble choosing just six looks from a collection to put on urban taster, it means the designer has done an amazing job, creating lustworthy visions at each and every turn. Parbal Gurung has done just that with spicy Vermillions, the faintest Pinks and the most amazing looking Silver, Grey and White pieces to die for. images from Style.com
Jakob + Macfarlane Architects just completed this crazy amazing project of a Big Orange Cube with a big hole in it, in Lyon, France. Meant as a container for objects of art in furniture and design, it has itself, unquestionably, become one of the exhibits as well. via Contemporist
From the makers of Arkhippo, the over-sized iphone case. Ark has done it again and given us Arkcanary II, an acoustic iphone speaker shaped like a phonograph’s speaker or an old skool hearing aid. ARKWHAT?
