A Scandinavian-styled minimalist cat litter-box that puts IKEA’s furniture to shame

Meet Jackson Cunningham. You could broadly call him a furniture designer, but his job description is a little more specific and a lot more obscure. Jackson designs furniture for cats.Realizing that readily available cat litter-boxes are either boring looking plastic trays or over-engineered, IoT-powered poop-shrines, Jackson went ahead and fashioned himself something that catered to his cat, as well as his space. The Cove is every bit a part of your household’s decor. It isn’t too ugly-looking...

Brewery managers have to know their chemistry. Understanding how to manipulate the brewing and fermentation process is crucial to devising a liquid that people will crave and ask for at the bar.Photo by Gerrie van der Walt on Unsplash Sewage treatment facility managers have to know their chemistry, too; but while they're also dealing with yellowish-brown liquids, their target end product is clean water that won't cause algae blooms and kill marine life. To turn wastewater into something that can...

Could These Tree-Like Vertical Farms Be the Future of Urban Farming?

Norway and New York City-based design studio Framlab ("fram" means "forward" in Norwegian) have come up with an intriguing solution for urban farming that combines modular design with soilless, aeroponic growth systems. The conceptual project—titled Glasir ("gleaming")—is designed with Brooklyn in mind, a borough where the foodie destinations along the gentrified waterfront neighborhoods stand in stark contrast to some of the biggest food deserts in the city in low-income neighborhoods like East...

An Object That Could Use a Little Design Attention: The BunkTrunk, a Bed-Mounted Locker for College Dorms

The BunkTrunk is an elevated locker designed to be integrated with your average dorm room single bed.I appreciate the thinking behind it: It can be "installed" by simply shoving the base under a mattress, it's elevated so as not to interfere with your feet, it works on both top and bottom bunks, it provides a viewing platform for your laptop if you want to Netflix in bed, and it safely locks away your valuables. However, I find the design a little underwhelming:I give the design high marks for f...

What Do We Want From History?

What might I want history to do to me? I might want history to reduce my historical antagonist—and increase me. I might ask it to urgently remind me why I’m moving forward, away from history. Or speak to me always of our intimate relation, of the ties that bind—and indelibly link—my history and me. I could want history to tell me that my future is tied to my past, whether I want it to be or not. Or ask it to promise me that my future will be revenge upon my past. Or warn me that the pas...

How Instagram Is Changing Theatre

“Instagram is absolutely shaping the theatre industry,” says Jay Armstrong Johnson, who recently played Raoul in Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. Johnson notes that Instagram has become “a necessary app, a connecting device” not just for fans and those without access to the arts, but also “to other artists, which has often led to new projects and/or collaborations.” – American Theatre

Interested in hand-lettering? Here's a book for you

I love old paperbacks, especially their great hand-lettered titles. I grabbed a few from my shelf to show you what I mean: Not many books feature hand-lettering, but there are still a number of people who keep the tradition alive. Ivan Castro, a graphic designer in Barcelona, Spain, is one such craftsman. He teaches lettering in design schools, and his book, The ABC of Custom Lettering is a beautiful and practical guide for the aspiring letterer. Here are some sample spreads:

Eating Sea Urchins Could Restore the Ocean’s Ecosystem

Contrary to reports that conservation is the only way to save our oceans, one company’s hypothesis suggests that eating more sea urchins (urchin roe or uni in Japanese) could actually help restore balance in the aquatic ecosystem. Urchinomics (the aptly named organization testing this theory) found urchins thriving in waters now abandoned by predators due to pollution, heating or overfishing. Increased urchin populations means trouble …
