The One-in-a-million phone

cartier_phone_1

You’ve got fancy phones like the ones Vertu makes, and then you’ve got these kinds. The ones that look nothing like a phone, but like a smooth sculpted piece of art. Designed as a device with an organic profile (quite a first for smartphones) and a clam-shell schematic (another first for smartphones) this piece of gadgetry, titled Cartier Millenaire, sure lives up to its name by being a one-in-a-million kind of phone!

Nice ‘Ghini!

lambo_01

The Lamborghini brand is one in which concept designers can let their imaginations run wild. A few, however, are purists and draw inspiration from the subtler days of the Diablo and Countach. Though it’s a spin on the Aventador, the Matador concept is a reminder of why we started liking the Golden Bull to begin with. It’s an evolution of the classic brand language that also integrates new visual elements. Design elements like the panoramic roof window, rearview cameras (known from the Urus concept, replacing redundant exterior rear view mirrors) and fighter jet inspired tailpipes are futuristic details of the super sport car vision. The revolutionary design includes all key aspects of Lamborghini’s formal language; the monobody-design, clear surfaces, and the Lamborghini’s typical direct line from the hood to the front windshield is intensified by the extended panoramic a roof.

The Air Necessities

freka_mask_1

Masks, as an item of clothing, haven’t received due attention from the fashion world. I suspect this is a conspiracy on behalf of the cosmetics industry. They don’t want you covering your face with something too stylish, lest you stop buying that fancy lip balm/voluminizer/chapstick thingy you saw Kylie Jenner using. Sadly, make-up never really saved anyone’s lungs from dust and smoke pollution. Masks, on the other hand, can keep lung ailments at bay. Freka, aims at making you understand how important that is with the added bonus of being a hard-core style statement.

The Freka mask’s construction is unique, keeping ergonomics in check. The Core, an inner skeleton allows the mask to rest comfortably on your face, following your facial profile. It also allows you to move your facial muscles freely while securing the mask in a way that prevents contaminated air from seeping in from the sides. The Wing, a fabric sleeve rests atop the core, forming the rest of the mask. Freka also boasts of an Internal ventilation system that makes sure there’s always fresh air for you to breathe. The Air Revitalization filter also uses fragrant Japanese Cypress to gently purify the air while also refreshing you with its soft aroma. To top it all off, its minimalist aesthetic is sure to get you to reach for your wallets!

the graphic rhythm and separation of structural elements, both recurrent themes in gerrit rietveld’s work, are highlighted in the juxtaposition of the ceiling’s white painted beams and supporting cement columns painted black of the stand.

Lounge in Art

bence_1

The Lane lounge chair find perfectly harmony between form and function by first exploring human anthropometry and ergonomics. Its dimensions, incline angle, and form-fitting shape place the user in the ideal lounging position in what almost feels like pure weightlessness. Inspired by rotational molding technology, which is significantly more economical than other types of molds, the design applies polyethylene’s flexible character to achieve a monocoque form while maintaining a rocking feature. Before the production a thin parts of mould made from aluminium with CNC machine. In the beginning the polyethylene’s consistence is powder. When the powder is loaded into the mould it is closed, locked, and loaded into an oven. Inside the oven the mould is bi-axially rotated slowly as the polymer melts and coats the inside of the mould. After the melting, when the time is right, the mould is removed from the oven and cooled. Cooling allows the polymer to solidify to the desired shape and shrink slightly so that it can be handled and removed from the mould. Although a practical, functional piece, when not in use, the chair doubles as an exciting three dimensional art work.
