Brazilian Modern - L'ArcoBaleno. When Carioca designer Sergio Rodrigues (1927– ) introduced his Mole armchair (later known as the Sheriff chair) in 1957, it sat in the window of his interior design shop in Rio de Janeiro for months without much notice.
But over the course of the next few years, examples circulated throughout Europe and received increasing media acclaim—culminating in first prize at the 1961 International Furniture Competition in Cantú, Italy, and Danish architect Arne Jacobsen’s declaration that the masterful design “is absolutely representative of its region of origin.” European approval echoed back to Brazil, and the chair became a national icon.

23 Clever Urban Hacks Made From Trash On New York City Streets. Over the last three years, an anonymous artist has wandered around the streets of New York finding random pieces of trash and turning them into something useful.
A scrap of wood, tucked into the curve of a U-shaped bike rack, became a temporary folding chair. Bottle holders from abandoned bikes, attached to the sides of a trashcan, transformed into mini-recycling bins. An old ball tied to a signpost became a game. In total, the artist has created 23 of these interventions so far in a project called Rotten Apple. 350 People, 8 Hours: Airbus Tests How Not To Make Passengers Go Nuts.
It might not always feel like it, but airline-cabin comfort is an arduously designed and tested experience.
Every detail matters. It’s why Lufthansa spent five years designing their new business class cabin, and it’s why Virgin Atlantic’s flight attendants spend a day training to whisper quietly to passengers in first class. There's an art to cramming bodies into a tight, highly controlled space in which you are barely allowed to move. A Better Way To Make Your Bed. My current strategy for putting on a duvet cover, a cheapie from Target, is to grasp each corner of my down comforter and literally crawl inside the duvet cover like it's a tent, pushing each corner of the comforter into each corner of the duvet cover.
And then two days later I have to do it again, because the comforter gets all bunched up in there anyway. It is a terrible system! Handsome Paper Notebooks Come With Digital Backup. Paper is awesome.
So is digital. We shouldn't have to choose between them in a zero-sum game, right? That's why the popular sketching app Paper now lets you output your digital drawings into physical books. Now a brand called Mod is offering the same product in reverse: handsome physical notebooks that "sync" to a digital app and web service. This 530-Pound "Exosuit" Will Help Find Undiscovered Life 1,000 Feet Under The Sea. Eighteen years ago, Mike Lombardi started his diving career as a high school student looking for lost wallets and keys off the coast of Rhode Island.
But this July, he’s about to take a trip no other diver ever has. At a depth of 1,000 feet--hundreds of feet deeper than divers can go with conventional gear--he’ll be seeking out undiscovered species of bioluminescent animals who spend their lives in total darkness. To get there, he'll need 530 pounds of newly minted technology on his body and a remotely operated deep-sea robot by his side.
On the surface, Lombardi will don something called the Exosuit, then spend 10 lonely, surreal minutes sinking into the deep. “These suits--there’s really been this romantic notion of people just trying to get down to the bottom of the ocean,” says David Gruber, the marine biologist in charge of operating the DeepReef-ROV descending with Lombardi this summer.

Why Aren't Our Gadgets Still Covered In Wood? 6 Startup Lessons From Designers At Pinterest, Fuseproject, And Behance.
In 2011, over 60 designers started the Designer Fund, to give angel funding, mentorship, and connections to designers creating businesses with positive social impact. We believe that designers should be part of the DNA of companies from the beginning and partner with business and technology cofounders to build great products, user experiences, and a culture of innovation for the long run. That core principle has informed our Designer Founders book series, which includes interviews with designers about the path they took to create tech startups.
Our goal with this project is for designers around the world to find inspiration in role models who have successfully taken the journey from designer to founder.
