Get Excited & Make Things - The Full Story

I posted this design a little while ago but have recently found this article explaining it all. Take a look at the story behind 'Get Excited & Make Things'. Link


We all need Sugru and we all need it now! Link

Kyle Bean

The work of Kyle Bean is fantastic. I really love the Russian Doll style mobile phones. Link

Form Follows Fun

I think this T-Shirt just about hits the nail on the head. Link

Katie Paterson - Ice Records

These three records are amazingly made from ice. They feature three different recordings of glaciers in Iceland and were made from the three glaciers themselves. Once made they were then played until they completely melted as part of an art instillation for Room London. Link

Pop Up

Pop Up, 2009, cardboard, tape, 94 x 275 x 200 cm, by Liddy Scheffknecht and Armin B. Wagner. Link

Ron van der Ende

Ron van der Ende is a sculptor living in Rotterdam. He specializes in wall mounted bas-reliefs constructed from found wood. The pieces can end up looking almost photo-realistic or like they have been photo-shopped onto their surroundings due to their cleaver use of perspective. It's hard to believe that they are all made from scraps. Amazing. Link

It reminds me a little of the scrap wood furniture of another Dutchman, Piet Hein Eek. Link

Tent London DeTnk.TV

Tent London has had some really great interviews on their website for quite a while now. They're well worth a watch and give you a nice look into the thinking and workings of some top designers. Link

Also check out the Tent London Flickr here for more photos of this years event.

Model Maker Giovanni Sacchi's Workshop

Looks a bit tidy but I guess that's because it's now a museum. Giovanni Sacchi made models for some pretty famous designers and architects including, aldo rossi, vico magistretti, enzo mari, achille castiglioni, ettore sottsass and marco zanuso. Link

Tales of Space and Time

Heather Peak and Ivan Morison have created some amazing pieces of work. Often blurring the lines between Sculpture, Architecture and Design they make pieces inspired by post apocalyptic survivalism. Shown above is 'Tales of Space and Time' a Converted Bedford Green Goddess containing a stove, pot plants and a library of apocalypse-themed fiction. Link

The Lego House is the latest toy challenge that James May has undertaken as part of his BBC series James May's Toy Stories.
