Marc Newson: Transport Exhibition NYC

Image:Ford 021c Concept
Marc Newson’s Transport exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in New York City. The show presents the full range of commissioned vehicles and mobility projects designed by Newson. The types of projects represented is nearly as wide as the scale. At one end is the EADS Astrium Space Plane prototype designed to take tourists into space and at the other is the Zvezdochka trainer for Nike meant to be used by Russian cosmonauts on extended stay at the International Space Station.

The exhibition is also the premier of Newson’s latest project, a speedboat designed for the iconic Italian boat-maker Riva. The limited edition boat (only 22 will be produced) is called the Aquariva and is a mix of Newson’s streamlined style with some of the character of the original Aquariva from the 1960’s.

Also part of the show is the 021c concept car Newson designed for Ford back in 1999. We’ve mentioned before that this vehicle is still striking today and still looks fantastic in person.

Transit Chairs and Tables by Boris Bally

American artist Boris Bally has created these fun Transit Chairs and Tables available at Outdoorz Gallery.
Bally uses recycled street signs as a celebration of a raw American street-aesthetic. Bally uses his skills as a jeweler, combining them with sculpting and industrial design to create a chair that is crafted for functional use that also considers the original street sign. Each piece is individually created based on signage stock and therefore one of a kind. Each comes with recycled champagne corks on the feet to protect your floors.

100% Norway at 100% Design preview Northern Lighting

Image:Twist lamp, designed by Tveit&Tornøe

In a country where the seasons vary dramatically, it comes as no surprise that young lamp manufacturer Northern Lighting was set up by, amongst others, a man from Northern Norway where some regions never see the sun rise above the horizon during the winter months.

Lighting was and is of a central concern to founder Over Rogne as it is to most Norwegians.
“We produce designer lamps and lights for different moods which are inspired by the unique Nordic nature, the culture and the very special natural light which surrounds us,” says Rogne. “All our products are made with the aim to create a good mood. Also common to all our products is the extensive use of materials that surround us such as wood, glass, fabric and even parchment paper.”

Paul Cocksedge gives flight to DuPont™ Corian® with a Gust of Wind

London Design Festival, September 24th 2010, Victoria and Albert Museum, London

A blank piece of paper is the starting point for so many ideas, so much creativity. For Paul Cocksedge, one of the UK’s most electrifying designers, this ‘canvas’ itself becomes the work of art for a one-day installation at the prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum. Hand-formed from 300 curvaceous pieces of Corian®, the multi-talented material that has inspired original thinkers worldwide, ‘Gust of Wind’ imagines that a stack of paper has been caught on a zephyr and lifted skywards to float on the air.

Jamie Anley from JAM interviews Giovanna Forte about The Shoreditch Ball

Shoreditch Ball

The Shoreditch Ball launched last year – how was it for you?

It was extraordinary. We seemed to attract everyone who was anyone together with everybody else. We had a true cross section of people from Shoreditch and beyond (yes, a few people came from Out West …). They all piled in and had an incredibly good time. The Blockheads blew our sound system at one point, but Phil Jupitus just kept going and no-one seemed to mind. The Sex Drugs and Rock & Roll took on a life of its own. This year we’ve gone a bit retro with jazz and swing, camped up with Jonny Woo and Pam Hogg. It’s all fairly “of the moment” as a two-fingers to austerity.
