Yves Béhar and New Story are planning to 3D-print an entire community in Latin America

I am not a total skeptic about 3D printed houses. I think there is a place for them – on the moon, for example.

CES Survival Guide: How To Properly Take Power Naps in Public

I never thought I would become someone who slept on the floor at trade shows. It's gross, people can steal your stuff, and I will repeat one more time that it's gross. As a general principle, I also believe that naps are a waste of time. As Drake once reiterated, "I don't take naps. Me and the money are way too attached to go and do that." In fact, I used to be the person who took photos of people sleeping at trade shows for entertainment. So what broke me? How did I become the person I've been ...

2018 Most Interesting Architectural Solutions

This year a bunch of fascinating architecture came up on our screens--but not all of it was modern. We'll start this entry off by going back to ancient times, then work our way up to the new stuff.Creative director Przemyslaw Sobiecki and architect Maja Wronska looked at some of the world's most famous ancient ruins, then created animated renderings to show you what they looked like in their original glory: In the 1400s, a very clever non-architect figured out how to erect the world's largest...

9 of the most envy-inducing tiny homes of the year — including a house that can be printed for less than $4,000

Around the world, many envy-inducing tiny homes were built in 2018. The list of this year's best includes a cabin on a mountainous ledge in New Hampshire, an island of tiny homes in Norway, and a 3D printed home in Austin, Texas. Each project is uniquely designed, though many feature similar elements such as hidden bedrooms and retractable decks. As housing becomes more expensive in cities, the trend of tiny living continues to pick up steam.  In 2018, tiny homes caught the eye of major corpo...

Space Saving for Urban Living: Ori's Mechanized, Collapsible Walk-In Closet and Disappearing Bed

Remember Ori, the mechanized transforming apartment system designed in a collaboration between Yves Béhar and MIT Media Lab? It caused a stir (okay, a design blog stir) when the concept debuted in 2016, and we gave them a Core77 Design Award in 2017. But selling an entire apartment system is a tall order, and now the company is marketing individual components as standalones; if we had to guess, this is to make market uptake easier.First up is the Ori Pocket Closet, a sort of collapsible walk-in ...

Experimental prefab home eschews fossil fuels in Geneva

In the centrally located town of Lancy in Geneva, Switzerland, a compact and experimental timber home bucks the local archetype for concrete-based housing in favor of a more eco-friendly alternative. Swiss architect Leopold Banchini collaborated with engineer Marc Walgenwitz to design the light-filled abode — dubbed the Casa CCFF — using a prefabrication system that minimizes construction costs as well as waste. The small urban home was built for energy efficiency and assembled in just a few da...

YD Talks: The Making of SPUN, the most exhilarating chair in the world

I remember the very first time I walked into a Herman Miller outlet. I walked right past the Aeron chair, Yves Behar’s SAYL chair, and even probably the most iconic thing in the room… the Eames Lounge Chair. I walked past all these hallmarks of great industrial design, because I had my eyes affixed on the most interesting object in the room. I say object because you couldn’t really call it a chair. It was an experience. It was the Spun.“There was no intention to design a chair”, says Thomas He...

Security robotics company Cobalt raised $13 million in a Series A round of financing this year, despite putting together a pitch deck the night before meeting with VCs.

Jimmyjane’s Form 3 Vibrator Review

Over the years of reviewing sexytime toys for the Toy With Mes, I’ve come across quite a few of them. So you might call me something of an expert. Since there are so many toys, and only so many ways one might use them, one of my challenges is figuring out what differentiates one toy from the next because seriously? There’s only so many ways to honk your hooter and after a while these things all start looking alike to me, no matter how innovative they may be. One thing I’ve learned by doing this ...

The Future Starts Here, V&A, review - a sinister, sobering picture of tomorrow's world 

By Alastair Sooke   What will the future look like? After visiting the V&A’s latest exhibition, The Future Starts Here, which sets out to explore how design is “shaping the world of tomorrow”, I can tell you: sinister, that’s what.  The show packs in 112 objects, products and “projects”, including solar-powered shirts that can charge a smartphone, and driverless cars – which, by my reckoning, have been a staple of crystal-ball-gazing exhibitions for years, even though engineers have yet to guara...
