What if Harley Davidson designed Air Purifiers

Well, if the company that made petrol-chugging motorbikes decided to also make air purifiers, I’d consider it a pretty good thing… but this one’s just a concept. As a part of PDF Haus’s What if ‘X’ brand made ‘Y’ product series, this is the Harley Davidson Air Purifier… a vertical air purifier that does a pretty remarkable job of copying the company’s sense of style and superimposing it on a product not manufactured by the company.Look at the air purifier’s side profile and the shape immediately...

The Kershaw Barricade knife also packs a seatbelt cutter and emergency glass-breaker

The Kershaw Barricade is EDC that’s absolutely worth carrying, especially while traveling.

Local News Is Collapsing In America

In a previous world, perhaps one could imagine that a million bloggers would spring up to fill the void left by all the actual reporting jobs disappearing, but that clearly did not and is not going to happen. The explosion of national digital-only news outlets has come and gone. Many survive, but few do the kind of journalism that local papers did. It’s one thing to tweet from a city council meeting every once in a while, and a whole other thing to cover City Hall for a real newspaper. – The A...

This Screenprinted Poster Wants to Replace Your Weather App

The idea to make an updating weather poster first came to Oli Woods, the Melbourne-based designer behind product design company Typified, when he was having lunch with his parents. "We were all in the kitchen, chatting and enjoying the company when the topic of 'the weather' came up," he says. "Seconds later, we were all on our phones, and the moment had gone, our attention had shifted from the real world to our screens and then stayed there."Determined to find a way of integrating connected pro...

Mauling Sprawling Art Installations: Are Outdoor Works Destined for Desecration?

Marko Remec’s 2018 piece Vertebrate Progression (Field Totem), commissioned for the grounds of a Long Island art museum, has already been damaged by visitors sitting on parts of it. One takeaway for custodians of outdoor sculpture in difficult-to-guard public settings may be that such works had better be less fragile. But that’s blaming the victim. – Lee Rosenbaum

John Donohue’s “All the Restaurants in New York”

Since 2017, New York based artist and writer John Donohue has been pursuing his — admittedly unlikely — quest to draw all of the restaurants in New York City (estimated to number around 2,400, not counting ongoing closings and openings). He takes this on by sketching on location in pen and ink, without preliminary pencil drawings. He then adds touches of a single color to the drawings. His drawing style is casual and sketch-like, with an almost cartoony feeling at times — unsurprising as Dono...
