Yes, We Too Want to See a Mirrored Skyscraper Hotel in the Swiss Alps

Design // Wednesday, March 25, 2015
We like the Swiss Alps. We think they are one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, filled with wonderful resorts with classy coffee and treacherous ski runs. Hell, we would go to Zurich right now (not really the Alps, per se, but you get our drift). So we are very much into the creation of a 381-meter skyscraper hotel, built in Vals, Switzerland, designed by Morphosis Architects.

Design // Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Sam Friedman was just featured in our February 2015 issue of Juxtapoz, and we have been following his work for the past few years and loved his shows at Library Street Collective and Joshua Liner.

Well, Richard will soon be in an issue of Juxtapoz, and in his interview, he mentioned being influenced by Alan Fletcher, a staple of British design who created, amongst other things, the V&A logo, Rueters, was a creative director at Phaidon, and founding partner of Pentagram in the 1970s.

"Shylights" Unfold and Bloom like Flowers

Design // Wednesday, March 18, 2015
The "Shylight" is a kinetic sculpture by Studio Drift that is inspired by nyctinasty, the natural mechanism that helps certain types of flowers close at night, for self-defense and to conserve their resources. The light sculpture unfolds and retreats in a fascination choreography mirroring that of real flowers.

The Blade Runner Model Shop, Revisited

Design // Tuesday, March 17, 2015
I don't want to expose too much of my inner nerd to the hundreds of thousands of people who read this site every few weeks, but when I saw these images of The World's Best Ever yesterday showing the model shop and behind-the-scenes look of the sci-fi classic "Blade Runner," I started to get all nostalgic for the "magic of the movies."

Considered one of Denmark's, not to mention the world's most influential 20th century furniture and interior designers, Verner Panton created innovative, funky and futuristic designs. We particularly love the "Visiona II" room he designed for an exhibition in Cologne in 1970...

Tom Sachs: Boombox Retrospective 1999–2015

Design // Wednesday, March 04, 2015
While it can be argued that the persona of an artist should be separate from an interpretation of the work, Tom Sachs poses an exception. The look of Sachs is unmistakably his own: an art world provocateur with a youthful visage, dressed in what could be called “smart boyish” attire—oxfords buttoned to the collar, pants rolled, stylish sneakers—with his signature mop of curly hair, facial scruff, and round glasses.
