This ergonomic chair brings traditional cross-legged sitting to the modern times!

In South-Eastern countries, it is more common for people to sit cross-legged on the floor than to sit on chairs. Not only is this an integral part of their culture, but it is supposed to be quite good for the posture too! Drawing inspiration from the tradition of his country, Iranian designer Arsalan Ghadimi created the Lunule Chair.Featuring a wooden frame with leather-lined cushions, the chair incorporates the tradition of sitting cross-legged. Its circular form provides the perfect structure ...

Bicycles with Airless Tires to Debut at Tokyo Olympics

Non-pneumatic, airless tires have been a long time coming, but have yet to crack the consumer market. Bridgestone may change that, or at least get them into the public consciousness; as tire sponsor of this summer's Tokyo Olympics, the company will provide a fleet of bicycles (presumably in Olympic Village, the details are unclear) kitted out with their non-pneumatic tires.So when will they go from bicycles to consumer cars? Jon Kimpel, Bridgestone's Executive Director for New Mobility Solution ...

Meet the slimmest, smallest tripod stand to ever attach to your phone…

I think the Lookstand is both a great and bad idea. Here’s why it’s great. At just a couple of centimeters thin, the Lookstand is everything you want in your phone but don’t have. It works as a stand, a grip, and opens out into a glorious tripod that can easily elevate your phone a couple of inches off the ground and at any angle you want. Forget the pop socket, forget those novelty stick-on rings, or those kick-stand cases… the Lookstand is all of them, and more.The all-metal stand weighs a m...

Haoshi Design Studio’s sparrow timepiece is a clock with a flock!

With a couple of sparrows casually perched in front of it, the Sparrow Round Clock seamlessly integrates timepiece and sculptural decor. The white birds give the clock a beautiful neoclassical sculptural appeal, as the clock sits right behind it, both partially obscured yet visible to the eye.What Taiwan-based Haoshi Design does is create a product-fusion where form and function coexist, but as separate entities within the same product. The clock isn’t sculptural, and the sparrows aren’t functio...

Stories Are An Oral Tradition. They Work Differently When You Don’t Hear Them

Once upon a time, none of these stories had yet been fixed on a page (or a clay tablet), but were carried in the physical bodies of the people who committed them to memory. Long before Johannes Gutenberg and his printing press, and 1,000 years before cloistered monks and their illuminated manuscripts, the principal storage facility for history, poetry, and folktales was the human head. And the chief means of transmitting that cultural wealth, from generation to generation, was the human...

An Extraordinary Boots-On-The-Ground Arts Philanthropist In Atlanta

“My desire to give evolved from going to a lot of museums, art galleries and live performances,” he says. “It took years to develop my taste, but once I was on the ground, seeing what these entities could do, it was easy to want to step up and help. I actually wonder why more people don’t do it because I can’t imagine anything more satisfying.” – ArtsATL

Klimt Thief: “We Have Given A Gift To The City”

Last Friday, when art historians confirmed its authenticity through X-rays to see if the original painting was there, Ermanno Mariani got the curious call, and the voice was oddly familiar. The man on the phone said he was the person Mariani had previously interviewed about the theft. Mariani also received a letter claiming, “We are the authors of the theft of Klimt’s Portrait of a Lady, and we have given a gift to the city by returning the canvas.” He turned the letter, written in large...

UNDONE’s “Blank” Watch Collection With Topawards Asia

Six designers radically reimagine the brand's wristwatches Historically, wristwatch design has been beholden to function. Wearers had to be able to tell time quickly and easily. As more (or most) people learn the time from their smartphones, the role of the watch has become more personal, either for the sake of ornamentation or self-expression. With that in mind, Topawards Asia tapped six veteran designers—Alan Chan, …

(Sandy) Alex G: Bad Man

(Sandy) Alex G’s “Bad Man” originally appeared on the artist’s 2019 album, House Of Sugar. Unexpectedly, the artist released an alternate version of the track, and an accompanying video directed by Zev Magasis. The 2020 take on “Bad Man” trades the twangy accent and generated drums for a pared-back piano and mandolin, and far more emotional and resonating vocals. Paired with the lo-fi visuals, the …
