Finding Your Passion and Sharing It with the World: Part 1

Passion is a word often used to describe leading entrepreneurs, high-level athletes, and fast-paced business leaders. It is the core heartbeat of Wall Street and what drives innovators to continually push the envelope in their discoveries. If you look at the top leaders in the world, my guess is you would use the word passion to describe one of their greatest characteristics. But the question is – if we were to talk to your friends and coworkers, would they use that word to describe you? Passion...

The WESN Allman is a purebred modern classic

The WESN Allman takes on a pretty bold task of perfecting one of the most already-beloved quintessential knife designs. The classic drop-point flipper. One of the most popular knife styles in the world, the drop-point is called so because the spine of the blade (above the edge) drops downward, giving it a more pronounced tip. The edge of the blade travels upwards to meet the gently dropping spine at this somewhat centrally located tip, making it a knife that’s almost as functional as a spear, ...

Jonathan Ward's Obsessive Approach to Industrial Design

This is a story about Jonathan Ward's obsessive approach to industrial design. If you're an industrial designer, you'll recognize some parts of his process, and perhaps be envious of the parts you don't. If you're not an industrial designer, this story will show you how an experience or series of thoughts can be translated, through hard work and over time, into an extraordinary physical product. PRELUDE It's the 1920s, and an audacious American businessman named E.L. Cord wants to make the best...

Karl Lagerfeld's Sideways Library

Karl Lagerfeld is a very particular man. I bet you think he lives in a house. Wrong. He lives in two houses that are side-by-side, separated by a distance of 2.5 meters. One house is for him to sleep and draw in. The other house is where he eats his meals and receives his guests.View the full content here

Has Email “Productivized” Smart People Into Being Stupider?

On his website, Donald Knuth offers the following explanation for his refusal to use email: “Email is a wonderful thing for people whose role in life is to be on top of things. But not for me; my role is to be on the bottom of things.” The idea that the life of a professor should be radically different than other professions, and that universities should take far-reaching steps to allow faculty members to be “on the bottom of things” is easy to dismiss as eccentric utopianism. But the time has...

Good Designer, Bad Human Being: Should a designer’s morals matter?

Disclaimer: Explicit language used ahead.Karl Lagerfeld, renowned fashion designer and art director of Chanel for 30 long years died at the age of 85 last month after facing health complications at the beginning of the year. His death was received in two rather intriguing ways. Some people celebrated Lagerfeld’s 70-year legacy as a fashion visionary and trend-setter… while others made sure Karl’s legacy included the fact that he was a racist, sexist, fat-shaming misogynist and a vocal Islamophob...

A Major New Player In Miami’s Visual Arts Scene Reveals Its Plans

The ArtCenter is finally announcing plans for its Cinderella-like windfall (one that, thanks to investments, has since swollen to $100 million, more than the endowment of any other South Florida visual arts organization, many of whom have been struggling to fund-raise even a fraction of that sum). It will be moving to the mainland Miami neighborhood of Little Haiti, where it will build a new $30 million, 40,000-square-foot art center with 22 studios for resident artists, a 2,500-square-foot ex...

BATHDOOM: A Doom level based on a terrible bathroom remodel

For years, Something Awful forum members have reveled in user bEatmstrJ's blow-by-blow account of a terrible bathroom remodel, in which he sought to transform his bathroom "with a woman in mind" with an eye to a future home-sale ("woman play an unfair role in the home-buying process"); bEatmstrJ's saga combines terrible ideas about how a bathroom should look with total home-renovation incompetence, making it the perfect foil for Something Awful's pioneering brand of jeering insults and mayhem. ...

This foldable iPhone concept has the soul of a MacBook

Let’s ignore the fact that this conceptual iPhone XFold has the exact same format as the Samsung Galaxy Fold, because this who-did-it-first battle between iPhone and Samsung isn’t worth our time. It should be, however, more of a who-did-it-better battle. The Samsung Galaxy Fold is absolutely gorgeous, but the iPhone XFold looks like it would be a bigger commercial success… and that’s because the XFold’s design is instantly familiar.If you look at the iPhone X Fold’s OS, you see that it’s essenti...

Artist-Endowed Foundations Are A Growing Force In The Arts World

NYC’s The Brant Foundation Art Study Center Opens With Jean-Michel Basquiat

A debut exhibit in a building that was once Walter De Maria's live/work space Back in 2014, rumors began circulating that the Brant Foundation had purchased 419 East 6th Street—the four-story building that had housed conceptual artist Walter De Maria‘s home and studio since the mid-’80s. Its origins, however, underline its strange, slender figure and the 16,000-square-feet space within; it was constructed as a Con Edison substation …

Signs Are Pointing To A Big Slowdown In Charitable Giving

Signs of an impending slowdown in charitable giving are emerging from multiple studies examining contributions last year, particularly those from donors of modest means.  For example, a new analysis of giving to more than 4,500 charities released by the Association of Fundraising Professionals this week found that overall donations in 2018 were up by only 1.6 percent, lower than the rate of inflation. – Inside Philanthropy

Bugatti’s 110th anniversary car is ‘ferociously futuristic’

This is Bugatti’s latest car. I use car in the most technical sense possible, because the La Voiture Noire (literally translating to The Black Car) is literally a car, complete with an engine, four wheels, doors and such, but it’s also a trophy. The one-off La Voiture Noire celebrates Bugatti’s 110th anniversary as an established automotive brand.A modern reinterpretation of Jean Bugatti’s Type 57 SC Atlantic (you’ll definitely see similarities in the rear half of the vehicle), the La Voiture No...

The Toy Association and Disney's Internal Packaging Tool Aims to Reduce Environmental Damage

How do you change an industry standard? You start small, case by case. Or, you create a tool that can do that for you, capable of evaluating many cases at a time, which is the route the Toy Association and Disney decided to take. Disney developed their own internal packaging tool years ago, debuting the tool's first product with the release of a Moana doll in packaging that could be simply separated for recycling. Using Disney's expertise through a partnership, the Toy Association developed a pa...

Did Wagner Exploit King Ludwig?

In Luchino Visconti’s magnificent four-hour film Ludwig, the king is ingeniously cast as an embodiment of the Wagnerian pariah. Is the film a credible re-enactment of history? In writing about Visconti’s mega bio-pic for the current Wagner Journal, I felt the need to narrate my own version of events. – Joe Horowitz

Wroth Over Rothko: SFMOMA’s Distasteful Disposal

What museum director would choose to sell from his institution “an important work completed at the apex of Rothko’s artistic powers, … one of just 19 paintings completed by the artist in 1960” — a year that marked “a critical juncture in the iconic Abstract Expressionist’s career”? – Lee Rosenbaum

Afghanistans Chihilsitoon Garden is restored with rammed earth architecture

The Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) has breathed new life and purpose into the Chihilsitoon Garden, a historic cultural destination in Kabul, Afghanistan that was in ruins for nearly three decades. Founded in the 19th century, the Chihilsitoon Garden had once housed visiting dignitaries such as U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, but suffered looting and damage during the internecine conflict of the early 1990s. Now restored to its former glory, the Chihi...
