Social Adhesion: New Museum Dedicated to the History of Stickers

For most of human history, art was created one piece at a time. When it moved from cave walls to portable canvases, that must have blown minds. Ditto for when we gained the ability to reproduce art, cranking out millions of copies. But an often overlooked innovation that really got art, or minor art at least, into our lives was simply to add an adhesive backing.To several generations' worth of youth, stickers were the fastest way to prettify something, vandalize something or establish some attem...

Industrial Designer Michael DiTullo's Thoughts on Sketching

While the folks at Freethink had the cameras rolling for that video on Jonathan Ward and Icon, they captured participating designer Michael DiTullo talking about sketching. Not all of that footage was relevant to the Icon video, so they spliced it together into this short-'n-sweet video capturing DiTullo's thoughts on sketching: Says DiTullo: "[Sketching] isn't a talent anymore than learning to speak French is a talent. It is a skill that is cultivated overtime through discipline and practice."...

German-Designed Domestic Underground Storage Elevator System and Garbage Hideaway

If you've ever visited Germany you know that they love order, revere engineering, and take pride in keeping tidy homes. As a prime example of this, check out German manufacturer Wöhr's Underground Waste Lift, which lets you store untidy lawn equipment, garbage and recycling bins, and the odds and ends you don't want cluttering up your lawn, driveway or garage.The bi-level solution lets you stop the lift at either of the two levels, of course. I must say, I'm a sucker for crisp German copy: "The ...

The Imperfect Residence: An Apartment in Hong Kong Embraces the Beauty of Imperfection

Designed by Nelson Chow of Hong Kong-based architecture practice NCDA, “The Imperfect Residence” is somewhat misleadingly named: the recently refurbished Hong Kong one-bedroom apartment is in fact a paradigm of domestic perfection. The title nevertheless succinctly references the designer’s guiding light, namely the ancient Japanese philosophy Wabi Sabi which is based on finding beauty in the...

Apple's $400 Mac Pro Wheels Have a Major Design Flaw

I'd argue that in order to design effectively, designers have to live in the real world, rather than hunker down in carefully curated studios. The danger of achieving great success and wealth is that those things can isolate you from the experiences of common people, and particularly the imperfection of their situations.Apple has made their share of Ivory Tower gaffes. Remember the brouhaha over their HomePod speaker leaving indelible rings on wood surfaces? You couldn't help but feel the design...

The Bentley Centanne concept encases the riders with a panoramic all-glass top

Almost like a convertible, but with an all-glass top, the Bentley Centanne literally captures the feeling of driving under the stars. The bespoke ‘grand tourer’ concept comes with a design that flows from start to end in the iconic powerful olive green, and with a panoramic glass top that cascades from the windshield all the way to the rear of the vehicle in a spectacular fashion. The front grill features an embossed 8, doing a hat-tip to the Le Mans 8. The coupe seats two at the front, but also...

L.A. artist plans to blanket the county with artistic tents, if homeless issue doesn’t improve

“Humans should not be living in tents.” Those words came from a man who plans to hand out 5,000 tents — each of them a work of art — if the homeless crisis doesn’t ease in Los Angeles in the next year. A homeless man packs up his bedding during artist and social activist Ed Massey’s unveiling of his art tents on Friday, February 28, 2020 at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and 26th Street in Santa Monica where his 7’ sculpture of a homeless man has been showing for months. Massey, who is kno...

Betrayal Of Education: America’s College Adjunct Crisis

According to the UC Berkeley Labor Center, 25 percent of part-time faculty nationally rely on public assistance programs. In 1969, 78 percent of instructional staff at US institutions of higher education were tenured or on the tenure track; today, after decades of institutional expansion amid stagnant or dwindling budgets, the figure is 33 percent. More than one million workers now serve as nonpermanent faculty in the US, constituting 50 percent of the instructional workforce at publi...

We Can Make It Our World

The credits for Head Over Heels say "Based on The Arcadia, by Sir Philip Sidney." But it's so much more complicated than that.First of all, there are two Arcadias. Sidney wrote it, then later substantially rewrote it, and the two versions are called The Old Arcadia and The New Arcadia. And there are some huge differences between the two.But also, to say that Head Over Heels is "based on" Arcadia is only vaguely true. Maybe "inspired by" would be more accurate. The show's creators, Jeff Whitty a...

The Downside Of Learning With YouTube How-To’s

Many of these videos fall into what Carlson calls “infotainment,” where the goal isn’t to teach, but to pass on information, even if it doesn’t lead to understanding. “They’re not saying, ‘Here’s how you would do the problem yourself,’” Stephen agrees. “They’re just handing you a bunch of microwaved facts.” – Fast Company

The INVISI is the ballpoint pen in its purest form

Invisi is perhaps the purest form a pen can assume, according to designer and stationery-enthusiast Raft Wong. Its no-nonsense design is minimal yet striking, with a basic cylindrical form crafted from solid brass and an equally simplistic ball-socket stand to match.Fashioned out of machined brass billets, and designed to even retain the brushed texture achieved by the moving drill-bit, the Invisi is all about creating something visually impactful and desirable without the design details. The ...

Musicians Talk Horror-Airline Stories

Trump Gets 45-Minute Briefing On The Play “FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers”

Trump hasn’t seen the play, according to playwright Phelim McAleer, but praised its concept: a script based entirely on congressional testimony and the text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who discussed the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s campaign and Russia while having an affair.

She’s Been Dead For 45 Years And She’s Still The Arab World’s Favorite Star

“There is no western counterpart to Umm Kulthum, no artist as respected and beloved as she is in the Arab world.” She sang everything from the most complex classical Arabic music to nationalist hymns; her sold-out performances ran for five hours or more; her monthly live concert broadcasts had entire nations glued to their radios. (It was said that Umm Kulthum was the only thing that unified the Arab world.) You still hear her voice in cafes and taxis throughout the Middle East and the Arab dia...

How One Expert Discovered The Creative Freedom Of Early Music

“I finally realized it felt more creative to be doing what I was doing in early music because there was so much that we hadn’t figured out; there was so much that was not in the scores. And just because you can’t make up all the notes doesn’t mean you can’t make up most of them. I played continuo, where you’ve got a bass line and you make it up. And I liked that.” – Van
