Domino Phone

The Domino Phone is a mobile phone idea created by Syntes Studio, a Stockholm based studio.
I love how fun this phone is! It’s form reminds me of Marc Newson’s Talby, but still has a fun spirit of it’s own. And I really like the texture on the back of the phone a lot, it’s nice that it’s not smooth and boring like most phones.
Be sure to check out the rest of their projects as well, lots of smart stuff over there!

Stroom Den Haag

Stroom Den Haag is a Netherlands based design, visual arts and architecture activity center. This is the best way I can seem to describe what they actually do. What I know for sure is that they do a lot of really amazing art and architectural projects for their community.
Above are pictures from an intervention done for the De Paradijsvogel elementary school. The project was completed by Marleen Kaptein and Stijn Roodnat (also known as KapteinRoodnat). The intervention consisted of hundreds of meters of bright green tubes that occupied not only the schoolyard, but the assembly hall as well.
Be sure to check out all of the amazing projects Stroom has at their website, definitely not something to miss!

David Rager

Talk about an awesome job… David Rager seems to be the MOCA Los Angeles’ go to guy for everything advertising related for all of the big shows for the last, let’s say, 2 years? And with good reason too, the man has some really awesome designs under his belt.
Check out his great work!

The MPRIES in Sarrasine

American supermarkets take notice! This is what a supermarket SHOULD look like!
MPRIES is a family owned Austrian supermarket chain that employs up and coming architects to design the most amazing supermarkets I think I’ve ever seen. They use interesting materials, exciting and unique lighting, and each store has it’s own site specific design. Attention to detail is seen not only in the outside but the inside as well, giving customers an extremely comfortable environment to shop in. I want to go to Austria to check all of these out now! The closest thing we have to this in America would be Whole Foods.

Since MPRIES’ website is all in German, I’ve taken all of the cool pictures of nearly EVERY store they have to show everyone really how cool these stores are! You should be extremely jealous you don’t have one of these close to you!

World’s First 24-bit OLED

World’s First 24-bit OLED

Sony released pictures of a new OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display that can show 16.7 MILLION colors, as opposed to the next closest display, which could only do 262,000. It’s all on a flexible piece of plastic that’s only 0.3mm thick.
This is seriously the future right here. Everything you’ve ever seen in sci-fi about something like this will be true.
You’re going to read your digital subscription of the New York Times on this stuff. Computers monitors will be as thin as magazines, and will roll up into a tube that fits in your monitor. Then haptic technology will come into it and you’ll be able to have touch screen capabilities.
I’m a firm believer in the, ‘If you can dream it, it can happen”, idea.

Nathan Fox

Nathan Fox

For some reason I decided to pick probably the most ridiculous image to showcase Nathan Fox’s art, but whatever, I think it’s funny. Nathan Fox does some hot stuff, and he’s kinda like a bizarro version of Paul Pope.I don’t think he’s biting Mr. Pope’s style, they just happen to have the same sensibilities in art… like drawing really well.

Nathan Fox’s use of color is also EXTREMELY amazing, like the wonderful piece above from the Will There Ever Be A Rainbow? show. He also does lots of 3D artwork, like the kind that needs the special glasses. Just got check out his site, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
