It isn’t often that designers get a second crack at their creations no matter if it’s in the world of fashion, architecture or design. Yet, IKEA is doing just that as they’ve announced plans to revisit their Scandinavian past with their PS Collection – looking to add new inspiration and increased sustainability to older items. Set to make its debut at the Milan Furniture Fair, the PS Collection looks to improve on items meant for small spaces that require a bit of duality.

Items include chairs that stack, furniture suitable for both indoors and outdoors, and items with hidden storage – all of which are comprised of green materials like bamboo. Expect to see items from the PS Collection from IKEA in stores in August. Source: Co.Design. OBEY THE GIANT: The First Narrative Film About OBEY. Samsung NX210.

Typography has long been the subject of infatuation for many graphic designers over the years. Be it the unnoticeable to the human eye balance of kerning or the harmony of ascenders and descenders, good typeface is a holy of grail of sorts to any self-respecting design aficionado.

Infusing his latest typeface endeavor with a degree of whit and creativity, Korean-born and current Palo Alto-based graphic designer Ji Lee recently debuted a book titled Word As Image in which he crafts a wide range of fonts to spell words that visually mimic the meaning behind the word itself. Having a resume that includes a former Google design position and current Facebook design title, Lee’s Word As Image personal project effectively infuses an added degree of life into each word and typeface it encompasses.

The first line of Kazakhstan’s Almaty Metro was opened to the public in December 2011 after more than 23 years of construction.

Only the second metro in Central Asia, the $1 billion USD project originally commenced in 1988, but was put on the back burner following the collapse of the Soviet Union before finally receiving continued commitment in 2005. More than 8.5 km in length and boasting seven beautifully-designed, marble-floored stations, the subway line is expected to serve more than 30,000 daily commuters. Construction of additional stations and expanded lines is already underway, which is projected to stretch the entire system to more than 45 km upon completion.
