NUART 2015: SHOWTIME (Recap Short Film)

Street Art // Wednesday, October 21, 2015
Nuart has just closed it's exhibition this year, but we got excited to see their short film they made about the 2015 version of the festival that we attended and took part in. This year was especially strong, and as we note in the current November 2015 issue, "This was Nuart’s fifteenth birthday, a triumph of longevity, demonstrated by how the festival has matured and evolved to include lectures, art installations, public walls and a yearly collaboration with a local corporate brand to solidify the concept of art integration." Watch this great recap of the festival, and even our editor makes a little guest appearance.

The Coca-Cola Bottle: Lasting Design

Design // Wednesday, October 21, 2015
Originally designed and patented in 1915 by Alexander Samuelson, a Swedish glass blower, the iconic Coca-Cola bottle first hit the market in 1916. Although Coca-Cola started in a drug store in 1886, by 1899 it had begun being bottled and had already been offered strictly as a soft drink for the decade before. The shape of the bottle was said to have been inspired by the shape of the cocoa bean. The unique grooves allowed Samuelson to patent the design and made it harder for anyone to produce and offer an imitation version of the soft drink.
