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

Who'd have thought that if you want a stable job in NYC, you should learn to make Stop signs? The red octagons are "our bestseller," John Jurgeleit, Executive Director of Operations for the Department of Transportation's in-house sign shop in Queens, told Insider. The Stop sign is the most frequently crashed-into, vandalized or stolen, and the shop has constant orders to produce replacements.The D.O.T. actually runs five sign-making shops (one in each borough), Insider visited the Queens branch ...

Phillipe Starck’s Broom – A sustainable chair that swept away industrial waste like magic

Here is some food for thought – what if our leftovers could be turned to functional furniture that looked food? I mean good, that looked good! Phillipe Starck is a French designer which means he eats really good food and has managed to turn the leftovers into some really good chairs called the Broom for Emeco. Global food waste (aka leftovers) is twice as high as predicted reports CNN but leftovers don’t necessarily mean just food – it is any waste that ends up in the trash and the solution to...

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...

Here’s what Dyson’s ‘air-purifying’ headphones could (possibly) look like…

Is it just great timing or what? Just earlier this month, Dyson filed for a patent that brings its air-purifying technology to a smaller, more portable scale. The company famous for making some of the most powerful vacuums, fans, and hair-dryers in the world just disclosed in a patent that they may be working on a portable, wireless pair of headphones with air-purifiers built right into them. Based on those patent files, here’s a concept that brings those visuals and Dyson’s form language togeth...

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 ...

A Watch Frozen in Time: Why CW&T is Removing Features from a Classic Digital Timepiece

Picture a digital watch. Not a smart watch or activity tracker—the most basic digital watch you can imagine. Chances are you're thinking of something that looks like the Casio F-91W, the ubiquitous black plastic LCD watch that's been on the market since 1989. Its simplicity, affordability (it costs about $10), and accuracy (twice that of a $30,000 Rolex) has made it a favorite with hardware hackers, artists, and—infamously—terrorists building bombs.Now it's getting a radical makeover from CW&T, ...

Extra Wide Office Chairs are Now a Thing in America

For years now in America, our cars, houses and people have been getting bigger. I'll let others debate why this is happening and what it means; I'm purely interested to learn that furniture designers have had to design some additional options for contract furniture, as waiting rooms are no longer one-size-fits-all:Photo and caption by F.O.Mr.Lahey: "My doctor's office had a special chair for XL patients."

Nike reveals Space Hippie sustainable sneakers made from waste

Nike has launched a new, exploratory collection, aptly named Space Hippie, to highlight the NASA-inspired concept of in-situ resource utilization — the idea of using space-based resources during deep space exploration. By taking the company’s own “space junk” from the floors of its manufacturing warehouses, Nike is turning waste into feedstock, creating a sustainable sneaker that combines high performance with low impact. The Space Hippie shoes are assembled using recycled “space junk”, such as...

Photos of the Week - Tokyo, Germany and California abduzeedoFeb 25, 2020 A couple of weeks ago I shared some photos I took last year.

Why should the Scottish woodlands be protected?

Although Scotland is more heavily forested than England or Wales, much of its woodlands have been lost to logging, urban sprawl and climate change. Initiatives to reverse deforestation have been underway to contribute more trees, protect woodlands and ensure the ecology, sustainability and longevity of Scotland’s forest resources. Why has reforestation become important in recent years? Last summer, a YouGov poll found that the environment is now viewed as the third most critical public issue, g...

Saving the Scottish Wildcat from extinction

In the wilds of Scotland lives the elusive Scottish wildcat, denoted scientifically as Felis silvestris grampia and colloquially as the “Highland tiger.” Considered as one of the planet’s most endangered animals, and possibly the world’s rarest feline, it is estimated that there are fewer than 50 purebred F. s. grampia individuals left, which accounts for their vulnerability. Meager population estimates, and a lifespan averaging 7 years in the wild, lead many biologists and conservationists to c...

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...

The Silhuous uses foliage-inspired shapes to divide spaces!

It divides spaces by connecting you to nature! Meet the Silhuous, a nature-inspired room divider. Using multiple acrylic ‘branches’ and leaves made from tracing paper, the Silhuous creates a visual barrier without appearing hostile. The barrier allows you to break spaces, creating zones in a way that’s alluring yet effective, and the Silhuous’ expandable design allows your ‘tree’ to grow depending on the size of your space. The best part is how it works as a beautiful light-diffuser too! Simply ...

A circular Apple Watch seems very unlikely, but it sure looks beautiful!

Short of putting a camera on the Apple Watch, there’s little to nothing Apple can do to make their Watch Series 5 better. It’s a remarkably built wearable with a great battery, a screen that can stay on all the time, a waterproof build that lets you go swimming with it on, an e-sim that lets you call, send messages, and the ability to perform EKG readings to keep you in the pink of health. It’s the perfect cross between consumer tech and medical tech, and there aren’t many smartwatches that ca...

This geometric villa provides complete privacy without compromising the view!

Nestled between the Caspian Sea and the Sisangan Forest is a private residence designed by MADO Architects in the Sisangan province of Iran. The clients had one request, an intense focus on privacy. The architects placed concrete slabs in a tent-like manner allowing them to intersect one another. The intersecting slabs create interesting geometric angles, adding a bold and unique feel to the structure. The vernacular architecture surrounding the building was used as a source of inspiration, with...
