Masks by Bertjan Pot

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
"Although seemingly these masks tell stories, this again started out as a material experiment. I wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together I could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy. When I was about to give up on the carpet, Vladi came up with the idea of ??shaping the rope into masks. The possibilities are endless, I’m meeting new faces every day."

The Looping Bridge in Sarajevo

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 17, 2012
A simple design can help reshape the infrastructure of a city, and in Sarajevo, a stunning looping bridge was recently designed by three Bosnian design students and completed outside the Academy of Fine Arts. The students, Adnan Alagi?, Bojan Kanli? and Amila Hrusti?, won a competition to design the bridge over 5 years ago, and just recently saw their design come to fruition. The bridge is called Festina Lente, which means "make haste, slowly" in Latin.

Last week, Nike invited Juxtapoz to their 21 Mercer space in SoHo, NYC, to create a pair of bespoke Nike SB Janoski’s, the newest addition to the customizable NikeID collection. We sent our good friend, director Colin Devin Moore to the studio to get his NikeID chops on, and who better to walk him through the process than, Stefan Janoski, himself.

Os Gemeos x Louis Vuitton coming January 2013

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 12, 2012
The latest in a long line of successful collaborations with the fine art world, fashion powerhouse Louis Vuitton has turned to Brazilian twins (and 2x Juxtapoz cover artists), Os Gemeos for a new series of designs. Little sneak shots were posted on the twins' Instagram account, so all we can do is speculate on the full collection, but there will be a scarf, it will be released in January 2013, and somewhere, a line is forming.

The World's Largest Basket

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 12, 2012
The world's largest basket happens to be the headquarters of Longaberger, you guessed it, a manufacturer of baskets and other craft goods. The building, standing 7 stories tall, is quite handy unto itself: the "handles" apparently wick away snow in the winter. Not sure how, but hey, it snows a lot in Newark, Ohio.

A Chair With Guts

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 11, 2012
This makes our stomachs feel a little queasy, but we truly appreciate the digusting, fascinating, and creepy chair with resin guts by Chinese artist, Cao Hui. We appreciate the chair and the artist's statement: "In order to deceive others, we explain with theory after theory, but it all ends in laughter and sometimes we even amuse ourselves before god laughs."

Top 25 Modern Beer Labels

Top List // Wednesday, December 05, 2012
Cold and wet is about all we need to enjoy a beer but these breweries have gone the extra mile to create beautiful packaging for their intoxicating libations. We make no quality guarantees for the content of their canisters but if we were to judge a book by it's cover, these would be great "reads."
