How do suburbs and neighbourhoods get their names? That seems to be changing in the age of Google Maps, according to an amazing story at The New York Times.
Echoing the grooves of a vinyl record alongside the ebonised ash wood base structure, this high-end turntable design is a stunner.
Trevor Paglen’s Orbital Reflector is a satellite launch for purely artistic purposes, delivering a reflective object that we’ll all see orbiting above us, like a comet streaking across the night sky.
An incredibly advanced lamp, dubbed the Komorebi, delivering some of the most natural lighting effects I’ve ever seen. Stunning concept. I do hope it makes it to market. But I have a thing for amazing lamp design. My desk lamp is an Yves Behar Leaf Light.
Design, performance art and clever security infrastructure come together at CloudFlare San Francisco. A wall of lava lamps has been integrated into the office design, with a constant feed of photographs of the fluid dynamics delivering random number generation for use in back office processes.
