Motion Design: KIYOMI KOBAYASHI Title Sequence

Motion Design: KIYOMI KOBAYASHI Title Sequence AoiroStudioJan 08, 2019 The famous city of Kyoto, Japan; over the years the streets kept its traditions and culture. The architecture has aged well over time and in Gion; you still can notice Geishas running down the small street alleys for their performances. I would like to share a motion design project by Yi Le, director and co-founder of Loop LOOP Studios from Shanghai, China. He created an opening title sequ...

This Luxury Design Retailer Has Nothing to Hide

On the third day of 2019, the new direct to consumer furniture company Dims. sent out a family letter that may just be the greatest piece of literature I have ever read from a capital-seeking entity – in this letter, the luxury design retailer announced major price cuts from two of their best products, but as nice as that is, the poetry came from the truth that followed… In this letter, Dims. revealed the very things that give them power, and by doing so, Dims. gave us power: they showed us the ...

Edinburgh Fringe Festival Is Now Scotland’s Most Lucrative Event

Self-driving cars won’t just change transport. They’ll change hotels too.

This is the Autonomous Travel Suite by Aprilli. It’s, in theory, a self-driving car, but Aprilli doesn’t refer to it as a car. Aprilli calls it a hotel on wheels, and while that sounds like marketing-team-hogwash, it actually isn’t. Aprilli are touching on the fact that self-driving cars won’t just make transportation easier. They’re going to shake the hotel industry.AirBnb has done enough to really disrupt the massive hotel, resort, and corporate suite business, but self-driving cars like the...

Art in Public Spaces: A Chronicle of Art Installations in Berlin

Berlin has an international reputation for being a paradise for artists of any kind. During the last 30 years, our beloved city has seen an incredible big amount of large scale art installations, constructed not only in exhibition spaces, but also in public spaces, like squares or streets. We are crazy about artworks, especially if they are emotionally touching, impressive, contemplative, and why not, also appealing to our eyes. We prepared a list of the most remarkable and unforgettable art ins...

Farmhouse-inspired family home combines salvaged and sustainable materials

Salvaged materials from a century-old farmhouse and barn have been given new life as Ben’s Barn, a spacious family home in Kennebunk, Maine that takes inspiration from New England’s rural architecture. Designed by Portland, Maine-based architecture practice Caleb Johnson Studio for a young family, Ben’s Barn was constructed with a mix of reclaimed materials sourced not only from the former farmhouse and barn that had stood on another portion of the site, but also from a midcentury modern teardo...

This kiridashi’s beauty lies in its unconventional design

While most purists would claim that the Engineer Kiridashi is in fact, a tanto-style blade rather than a kiridashi blade, it forms a part of Det Tidkun’s series of handmade kiridashis. Tidkun, a Thailand based knife designer (known as Ironbone Knives on Etsy) often creates these marvelous beauties by hand, relying on power tools only when absolutely necessary.The knives are all made from SKD11 Steel, a tool steel that is known for its strength and ability to hold its sharpness for longer than tr...

Creating a Culture of Creativity: Why It’s Important and Where to Start

A healthy culture is a vital piece of any functioning organization. Culture is what keeps employees engaged and companies moving towards their goals, and in a climate where just 32% of employees would say they are “engaged at work,” it is more important than ever to create a healthy culture. At Ethos3, we come across companies of all shapes and sizes and have worked across the spectrum when it comes to company culture. But there is one unique trait we have seen in the most successful companies: ...

The Next Big Thing In British Art: Research Architecture?

“Where the Young British Artists were about ego and in-your-face art, with its sharks and suggestive arrangements of kebabs and fried eggs, this is collaborative, research based and politically committed, spanning architecture, journalism, law and science. As with all the most interesting movements, there’s controversy over whether it’s even art.” – The Guardian

Somebody Tried To Shame Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez By Posting A Video Of Her Dancing In College. Really?

Dance Critic Sarah Kaufman: “Perhaps, somewhere, there exists a small, sad sliver of the human population that still believes, 17th-century style, that dancing is sinful, that having fun is wrong, that music is corrupting, that a young woman playfully noodling around with her hair down must be some kind of wild, out-to-get-you Medusa. I guess the Puritan prejudice against a good time hasn’t entirely disappeared. Otherwise, how could anyone think that publicizing a video clip of a beautiful, coll...

The 1990s Design Tweak that Changed the Course of Pickup Truck Evolution

As a design student in the early '90s, I was fortunate enough to visit the big three auto manufacturers in Detroit on a class trip. One highlight was meeting Michael Santoro, who was then a brash young designer for Chrysler, and he showed us some revolutionary sketches of the then-forthcoming second generation Ram pickup truck. I didn't realize it at the time, but what he showed us would change, at least in my opinion, the course of all future full-size pickup designs by all of the major brands....

Guardian Profiles Artist Following Footsteps of JMW Turner Through Areas Ravaged by Climate Change

The Guardian profiles a recent project by artist Emma Stibbon, whose work documents the results of climate change on landscapes previously depicted by famed landscape artists like JMW Turner. “When we think of the Alps,” she says, “we think of iconic white peaks.

Could 2019 be the year of the vegan? This past week, people all over the world promised to make lifestyle changes with various new year’s resolutions.

Ranking All 213 Beatles’ Songs From Worst To Best

This quixotic task was performed by longtime music critic Bill Wyman. It’s an admittedly deeply subjective ranking. Wyman heaps the most scorn for Paul McCartney’s “Good Day Sunshine” which ends up at the bottom. He calls it bland and contends that it ruins “Revolver” the album it was on. – New York Magazine

How The Prado Museum Revitalized Itself

Central to this shift was the Prado’s hard-won independence from government interference. Once, directors came and went with each political quarrel, creating uncertainty and malaise. “The Prado was sometimes a weapon used by one political party against the other”.  – The Art Newspaper

Gauguin. Spirituality and Max Hollein

Most Paul Gauguin exhibitions show him off as a sensualist who abandoned his family in France to canoodle with young Tahitian girls. So it was refreshing to see Gauguin: A Spiritual Journey last year at the de Young museum in San Francisco. The exhibit leaves out his most sensualist works and therefore presses visitors to see other aspects of his work. — Judith H. Dobrzynski
