John Singer Sargent: Portraits in Charcoal at the Morgan Library

John Singer Sargent is known for his bravura society portraits in oil, as well as his masterful watercolors. The latter were painted largely for his own pleasure as he traveled. The former, which were his stock in trade, came to weary him late in his career, and at one point he simply stopped doing formal portraits in oil. He continued creating portraits however, but in the form of charcoal drawings. These are wonderfully economical, deceptively simple but insightful and evocative of personali...

Here’s an Airpods case that lets you carry a bit of Apple history around with you!

The AW3 from elago pays tribute to Apple’s original hero product from its heyday. The 1984 Macintosh-inspired silicone sleeve for the Airpods case really gives it less of a dental-floss vibe and more of a cute relic appeal. The white silicone sleeve guards your Airpods case, cushioning it from accidental bumps and scratches, while an outlet at its base allows you to charge it too. In fact, the entire sleeve is compatible with wireless chargers too, letting you use even the new generation Airpods...

Civic Furniture Design: Snøhetta and Vestre's Peace Bench, a/k/a "The Best Weapon"

Yes, I reflexively almost put this into the Design Roast, before reading up on the intent of the design. This is the Peace Bench, designed by Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta and manufactured by Vestre, a company that bills themselves as the first carbon-neutral outdoor furniture manufacturer.To be honest, from a practical standpoint the design makes no sense to me. The anodized aluminum bench is over 21 feet (6.5 meters) long, yet appears to seat only two. Furthermore, physics presumably in...

Space-Saving Furniture Design: A Big Improvement for the Expandable Table

I own the expandable Goliath Table, which you may have seen in one of our videos: It is an amazing table that expands from just 17 inches to about ten feet in length. I have found it indispensible for everything from dinner parties to larger craft projects to outfeed for an industrial serger, and in a pinch I've even used it as an assembly table for woodworking projects. I always considered its flexibility, utility and space-saving properties unmatched.It isn't really designed to be an assembly...

The Inimitable Mr. Bloom (Last Of His Kind?)

Harold Bloom “read like a man picking up crumbs with a moistened index finger. He often considered loneliness in literature. You felt he was attracted to loneliness as a theme for the same reasons that Ishmael, in “Moby-Dick,” liked to join funeral processions. It made him feel more open, invigorated and alive.” – The New York Times
