a compilation of products, furniture, jewelry, architecture and artists that float our boat. FURTHER EXAMINATION:

Adidas – D Rose 3.5

Adidas D Rose 3.5 is a pretty serious shoe. Too bad the clear soles get worn out so quickly.

Lassila Hirvilammi – Kuokkala Church

I have a strange fascination with A-frame diagrams for buildings. The Kuokkala Church by Lassila Hirvilammi in Finland combines a symmetrical/axial worship space plan with a series of slight angle twists to the form to create auxiliary spaces.

Studio Weave – The Lullaby Factory

Studio Weave’s art/music installation Lullaby Factory transforms a neglected space in the rear of a few buildings at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children into a fantastical machine that makes songs for the children who are patients there. Amazing and inspiring.

Take My Picture

I worked on a project near Lincoln Center a while back and during the times around Fashion Week, I would see the crowds of people posing and taking pictures outside at the fountain. Now I know what they’re up to and who their haters are. People on both sides of the lens seem to enjoy it. And these people who said they were there first and don’t like being crowded out, who cares?

Star Trek Into Darkness New Trailer

Can’t wait for Star Trek Into Darkness

Chairs Game

Chairs Game rethinks what a game should and could be.

Supra Kids

Supra for KIDS! I like that Ellington is in the video.

New Balance – 3D printed track spikes

New Balance’s 3D-printed outsoles/spike plates are the wave of the future…for elite athletes. Not quite so much for weekend warriors.

Dr. Lakra’s Mutant Laboratory

An exquisite corpse-ish card-based game – Dr. Lakra’s Mutant Laboratory.

Boston Dynamics – BigDog

In case you thought that the Terminator movies weren’t going to happen in the near future: The Boston Dynamics BigDog is gaining more and more skills. When it was first published it was for walking, then traversing tough terrain, now it can throw stuff. It’s designed to save and help people…for now.
