Why wouldn’t you clad your precious iPhone in this Midnight Green Suede case??

I’ll be honest, I don’t like cases but they’re an absolute necessity. I take really good care of my phone, but even I’m not a stranger to an accidental drop only to find that my new phone has a slight scratch or dent in it. It’s annoying to cover your beautiful phone in an ugly case, but it’s heartbreaking to actually damage your phone because you’re a “no case” kind of person… so here’s a best-of-both-worlds sort of case. Made from premium suede, this iPhone 11 Pro case gives your phone protect...

Why Astronauts Have Unisex Spacesuits (and Why Unisex Body Armor Doesn't Work)

As we learned here, when female soldiers in the U.S. military are given body armor designed for men, their job is made more dangerous; the ill-fitting armor has been shown to encumber women's range of movement, which affected everything from their aim with a firearm to their ability to quickly get in and out of a vehicle. Even worse, the bad fit creates gaps that an enemy can grab onto during hand-to-hand combat.Sheathing the relatively barrel-like shape of the average male torso is a relatively...

Incredible Eames Lounge Chair Rebuilt With Recycled Skateboards

Whether wittingly or unwittingly, Canadian fabricator and skateboarder Andrew Szeto purchased a faux Eames Lounge Chair. The only good thing about owning a lousy knock-off is that you have no psychological problem ripping it apart, which is exactly what he did. Szeto then refabricated ­­the back--by recycling old skateboard decks.After cutting the decks (so many decks) into strips, he then began laminating them together.I was wondering how he could possibly bend these pieces, which are laminated...

How Astronauts Get Their Spacesuits On (and Other Fun Facts)

While researching the story of NASA's new spacesuit prototypes, I could not confirm the one-size-fits-all claim made by news outlets. But I did learn the following fun facts while I was looking:- According to NASA: During spacewalks, which can last for many hours, astronauts all wear "a diaper-like garment…that is a combination of commercial products stitched together for maximum absorption." Astronauts "generally prefer not to use it."- Amy Ross, NASA's lead spacesuit engineer, describes her jo...

World Premieres & Designer-Approved Popcorn: NY Architectural & Design Film Festival Kicks Off Wed, Oct 16

My first time attending an Architecture & Design Film Festival program was in 2016. I saw graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister's documentary The Happy Film, a tonally existential autobiography about Sagmeister's pursuit for that elusive, tease-of-an-emotion. Following the screening, the audience had the privilege of sitting in on a discussion between (now-disgraced) radio journalist John Hockenberry and the filmmakers, the famous designer included. It was an intimate setting, and a rare opportunit...

GOUACHE 2

While taking a break from the carbon pencil lessons, I'm also following along with the free Strathmore online course on gouache.  I had to buy a set of gouache to use (really!) because I didn't have the colors she uses.  This was a really cheap set I got from Amazon - but the reviews were good so I'm hoping they are good quality (I didn't want to pay $8 a tube for a new set).   I haven't opened them yet but will in the next lesson - which will be painting an eye! Not finished wit...

The Original 1956 NBC TV Footage of Charles & Ray Eames Debuting Their Iconic Lounge Chair

Focusing on domestic topics, Home featured a certain Eames couple in 1956.During the segment, Charles and Ray Eames discussed their work, their work relationship, the design field, materials, their house composed of "standard factory units," and capped it off by debuting this newfangled thing they'd come up wi...

James Wood: Harold Bloom’s “Anxiety Of Influence”

“You mistook him for no one else: the late, popular style was a faded fan, but it was still recognizably Bloom’s old peacockery. The leaping links, hieratic cross-referencing, and amusingly camp self-involvement—the sense you got that everything made sense inside Bloom’s head, that everyone connected with everyone else within the huge Oedipal family he had made of literature—had been there from the beginning, somewhat masked by the scholarly density and relative propriety of his early wo...
