This polaroid camera goes modern with an analog slider and a burst mode!

Have you ever used an instant camera? I must say they’re pretty fun, and using one is a totally unique experience on its own. However, they’re quite limited as they can only capture one single moment, not multiple ones. With the advanced instant cameras today, you can print out a single picture several times, but you can’t deny capturing multiple images in quick succession is much more satisfying. You might say we do have our smartphones and their cool burst mode for that, but come on, there’s s...

How Stop Signs are Made: Inside the NYC Shop That Handmakes Street Signs

Mycelium is Growing Everywhere

Growing Pavilion at last year's Dutch Design Week photo by Eric Melander This past November the growing popularity of the fungal building material called mycelium was made manifest by the Growing Pavilion at Dutch Design Week. A collaboration between designer Pascal Leboucq and the bio-fabrication company, Krown Design, the construction was a testament to the power of the industrious organism and other bio-materials. Within the pavilion resided an exhibition of evidence to the ways in which myce...

Yea or Nay? A Wristwatch That Conveys the Time Non-Visually and Silently

I'm generally down on new ideas for watches, which I often find too enamored of technology, but this here is a novel approach that I'm curious to get your take on.An object called Prompt, which its creators are branding an "anti-watch," is for those who need to be somewhat aware of the time, but are tired of glancing down at their watch every few minutes. It's also for people who interact with others a lot, yet need to maintain a schedule, and don't want to be rude or unintentionally give signal...

Here's the Information That Companies Share About You When You Lease or Finance a Car

My wife and I recently leased a vehicle for the first time. I spent a lot of time studying the paperwork in the dealership's finance office. I cynically assumed I'd get screwed somewhere, but I wanted to make sure I got screwed in a clever and devious way, not because I missed some obvious mistake.If you want the car, you've no choice but to sign their privacy agreement, so I did. Yesterday I found a hard copy in the mailbox, spelling out the specifics. This morning I read it over breakfast and ...

For this year's Core77 Design Awards, we're conducting in-depth interviews with some of our 2020 jury captains to get in a glimpse into their creative minds and to hear more about what they'll be looking for in this year's awards submissions. You could say the general purpose of an organization's collective body is to ask the question, "what's next?" In other words, any one person's job at a company is to help contribute to moving it forward and make it a success. But not everyone can say they...

Designer Profile: William Sawaya

Eschewing the notion that art is in the eye of the beholder, architect and designer William Sawaya considers the inherent artistry of anything—be it a painting, a candlestick, a table lamp, or a chair—to be connected to the expertise and dedication of the artist (or designer). He believes that things made carefully, with respect for the material, attention to detail, and deep commitment to craft, have intrinsic value as art, especially since they are “practically unique, strongly individual and ...

So Far California’s New Gig Economy Law Is A Disaster For Theatres And Actors

No one is arguing that theatre artists don’t deserve to be paid or shouldn’t be treated well. As Susie Medak, managing director at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, pointed out, there’s simply a fundamental disconnect between the law and the creative process of theatre. “What concerns me the most is that this law doesn’t take into consideration at all the way creative artists work. It has a desire to codify everyone’s work. The impulse behind AB 5, in making everyone an employee, is that everyone ...

Blake Gopnik’s New Bio Of Warhol: A Case For His Enduring Influence

It is hard now to recapture the shock of 1962 when the iterations of Campbell’s soup went on display at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles (New York wasn’t interested). But the cumulative effect of their pristine forms, their tromp l’oeil construction, their obsessive reiteration (there were 32 prints, one for each flavour), luminous banality and, above all, their thereness, was to blast apart everything that we thought – and think – we know about art. – The Guardian
