Juxtapoz @ Nike "Nature Amplified" Design and Innovation Summit

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Yesterday, at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, Juxtapoz was invited to attend both a design and innovation summit based around Nike's new campaign, "Nature Amplified," and two new running shoe releases that will challenge and invigorate the notion of the running shoe. Nike, at its core, has always been about running, and we got to test out both the Nike Free Flyknit and Free Hyperfeel. But even better, we got to experience some pretty amazing visual presentations and installation showcases of both art and shoe, design and progression of technologies. 

Kilian Eng, June 2012

Vault // Friday, June 28, 2013
One of our favorite artists of the past three years, Sweden-based Kilian Eng, just released his new book, Object 10, through Floating World Comics. Because we like any good time to check in with Eng and see what new works and projects he has going on, we look back on his interview in the print pages of Juxtapoz in June 2012, where we discuss science-fiction, other universes, and Ligne Claire. 

Installation by Anya Sirota + AKOAKI in Amilly, France

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 28, 2013
Michigan-based design studio, Anya Sirota + AKOAKI created this great installation of two 30-feet large star sculptures in a defunct tannery in Amilly, France. As UR Design notes, "The project, titled Pop It Up, comes at a critical moment for the tannery complex. Come fall 2013, the site will be converted into a cultural art center. In its current state of coming-undone-ness, however, with its bared concrete structure and second-story wood flooring and windows removed, the surviving architecture offers exceptional opportunities for experimentation and interim engagement." Its Friday, we like sharing quotes. 

Toledo, Naples Metro Station by Oscar Tusquets Blanca

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 24, 2013
We don't find ourselves hanging out in the MUNI and Bart stations here in San Francisco any longer than we absolutely have to. We're pretty sure though, if any of them looked like this we would be riding up and down that escalator allll day. Step it up San Francisco.

Spider Furniture by Bruno Freire

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 19, 2013
A few of us here in the office are in the process of buying some new furniture, and I know how i feel; I like things minimal but with a bit concept. Maybe I should go with this collection of spider furniture by designer Bruno Freire for Brazilian brand Oficina Polvo. The collection features an assortment of lamps, tables, desks, and even a chandelier.

An Interactive Lamp That Changes Color Using Syringes

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 10, 2013
This multi-colored RGB LED lamp by Taras Sgibnev has an innovative control system using three syringes filled with real ink. The syringes allow people to change the color of the lamp. We suggest you watch the video after the jump to see the syringes in action.

Skull & Crossbones Sugar "Cubes" by Snow Violet

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 05, 2013
Sometimes the idea of sticking a another boring cube into our coffee gets us down. Luckily, a designer by the name of Snow Violet created these brilliant skull and cross bones cubes so we can make our morning routine of staring into our coffee cup a bit more sinister... (if we can figure out where to get some)

The banana pool table by Cleon Daniel

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 16, 2013
Maybe this is because we are super excited about the new Arrested Development season, but anything with a banana right now is on our radar. Cleon Daniel has created this hybrid of pool and miniature golf with the Banana Pool Table, complete with yellow felt and 4 holes instead of 6. We say there is a new beer pongish game to be had here....
