Meet Anton Lorenz, the Man Who Brought Tubular Steel Furniture and Reclining Chairs to the Masses

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus this year, Vitra Design Museum is highlighting the work of a lesser-known yet key figure, the entrepreneur and designer Anton Lorenz who helped bring the promise of tubular steel furniture to life. The exhibition at Vitra Schaudepot in Weil am Rhein, Germany, titled "Anton Lorenz: From Avant-Garde to Industry," looks at Lorenz's legacy as the man behind the Bauhaus' "machined aesthetic."

Beto O'Rourke's hacker name was "Psychedelic Warlord," so that must mean he's done hallucinogenic drugs — right? — and is that something that's okay in a presidential candidate?

Scott Adams addresses the question whether Beto has done hallucinogens:Scott's first pass at the question is another question: "Have you seen Beto?" He giggles while waiting for the question to soak in. He says anyone who's taken hallucinogens (which Scott has) will have an "easier time" with the question.Eventually he gives his answer: He'd place a "large bet" on "yes."He's quick to add that it's not a criticism. "In fact, I might even prefer it." This preference interweaves with his reason for...

Poet W. S. Merwin Has Died At 91

New Humane Society report shows animal testing labs kill thousands of dogs annually

This distillery helps you make delicious, carbon-negative cocktails

Do you ever think about how your happy hour is affecting the environment? Manufacturing alcohol in the United States creates harmful carbon dioxide that can wreck the earth’s system of natural resources, and a massive amount of the materials needed to package and distribute alcohol (bottles, plastic caps, etc.) end up in the trash. Los Angeles-based Greenbar Distillery, however, is changing the game entirely with its carbon-negative company model. One of the world’s largest selections of USDA-...

Jill Lepore On The Animating DreamS Of American Democracy

The history of the United States is a history of bias and brutality and hubris, but it is also a history of idealism and hard work and soaring optimism. What emerges is an invitation to regard these tessellated truths and conflicting motive forces with an equanimous understanding that can inform a juster, more beautiful, and less conflicted future. – Brainpickings

The Psychology of Color with Products

One of the most important aspects of business is producing a product or service that will truly connect to consumers, where they can feel positive about a certain brand, whether it’s for ethical reasons, or simply because they believe in the “message” of a certain company, for example. You will often see companies spend an exorbitant amount of money on things that might otherwise seem trivial, such as the design of their company logo, the influencers that they utilize in marketing campaigns, a...

Trump administration wants to remove the gray wolf from the endangered species list

Government officials in the U.S. are looking to remove the gray wolf from the endangered species list.

Who Gets To Be Called A Conductor?

“Every identity comes with inherent biases, assumptions, and privileges to varying degrees. A helpful exercise is to take an identity and think of the immediate mental image that comes to mind when you invoke it. Let’s take ‘conductor.’ … You probably wouldn’t initially think of someone like Lidiya Yankovskaya, the only female music director of a multi-million dollar opera company in the United States. Or of someone like Francisco J. Núñez, founder and director of one of the world’s most accomp...

Water pollution inspires the Lake Erie Bill of Rights to improve water quality

Residents of Toledo are fighting back against water pollution in Lake Erie. Residents in the Ohio town voted on a Lake Erie Bill of Rights to help protect the lake from human waste, a move that has been criticized by the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation (OFBF). The piece of legislation, dubbed LEBOR, basically gives the lake the same rights as humans. If the measure stands up in court, residents will be able to sue individuals and businesses on behalf of the lake. Citizens in Toledo hope this will c...
