The sound of music is what the grooves on this aluminum turntable represent!

Everyone loves a quintessential vinyl turntable. There’s something simply so magical and iconic about them! However, there hasn’t been much variation and experimentation when it comes to these turntable designs. Hence, product designer Yani Vandenbranden wanted to create a turntable that sets itself apart. A design that extends beyond an ordinary turntable, or what she calls a “360-degree product”. Vandenbranden’s turntable Bo is innovative and interesting. Crafted primarily from aluminum, Bo...

Please, I'm Begging You, Take My Plastic Bags

In my apartment, there is a small mountain of plastic bags that my roommates and I continue to reluctantly build upon. Desperate to deal with these wasted bags, I am regularly trying to find different opportunities to reuse them. Of course, I alone will never find ways to reuse all of them. So my mountain of plastic guilt grows ever higher. This might be a familiar feeling for many who are justifiably concerned about the amount of plastic gumming up the gears of the earth. A heap of plastic bags...

What Can the City Learn from the Country? Upcoming Rem Koolhaas Exhibition at the Guggenheim

It's been nearly two years since I gave up my 2,000-square-foot loft in SoHo, in a building I'd lived in for twenty years. I was born in New York and figured I'd die in New York. But I knew I'd peaked--if I stayed in New York, I'd never do better than that loft--and, worse, had gone into decline; newcomers had altered the city into something I could no longer adapt to.The farm I live on now is the exact opposite of New York City in nearly every way I can think of. I have learned a lot out here a...

Watch This Enormous Mobile Crane "Self-Assemble"

The Liebherr LTR 1220 is a telescopic crawler crane with a 220-metric-ton (242 U.S. ton) maximum load capacity, with a boom arm that can hoist things 101 meters (331 feet) into the air.Although it can move around on jobsites under its own steam, it of course moves too slowly and takes up too much space to drive it there; so like a stationary crane, it is broken down into pieces and trucked to the jobsite. But it is designed in such a way that once it arrives, it can "self-assemble," with some hu...

Design vs. Disposability: The Icon Approach

The folks over at Freethink have put together a killer video on Jonathan Ward's Icon. This one isn't just drooling over the cars and Ward's legendary attention to design detail; instead they ask the larger question, what if this level of thought, design, future-proofing and craftsmanship were applied to all products? What would that do to our perceptions of disposability and long-term use?"They're taking a 40 year old car," says a familiar voice in the video, "and essentially preparing it for it...
