Same old, same old. How the hipster aesthetic is taking over the world | Opinion Go to Shoreditch Grind, near a roundabout in the middle of London’s hipster district. It’s a coffee shop with rough-hewn wooden tables, plentiful sunlight from wide windows, and austere pendant lighting. Then head to Takk in Manchester. It’s a coffee shop with a big glass storefront, reclaimed wood furniture, and hanging Edison bulbs. It’s no accident that these places look similar. It’s not just coffee shops, either. In an essay for the American tech website The Verge, I called this style “AirSpace”. Hence the replicability: if a hip creative travels to Berlin or Tallinn, they seek out a place that looks like AirSpace, perhaps recommending it on Foursquare or posting a photo of it to Instagram to gain the approval of culturally savvy friends. You can hop from cookie-cutter bar to office space to apartment building, and be surrounded by those same AirSpace tropes I described above. There are several causes of AirSpace. But the king of AirSpace is Airbnb. AirSpace is convenient, yes. Same old, same old. How the hipster aesthetic is taking over the world | Opinion
Disney's Frozen: The power of princess merchandising | The Independent Disney's Frozen: The power of princess merchandising | The Independent The Patriot Centre at George Mason University, half an hour west of Washington, is a popular place to watch concerts, college athletics, professional wrestling and other events that command the attention of the adult world. But no event in the 29-year history of the arena has attracted as many people or earnt as much money as October's performances of "Disney on Ice Presents Frozen". For six days, waves of little blue-and-white Princess Elsas – and quite a few costumed parents – sang the movie's hit song "Let it Go" at the top of their lungs, enjoyed £10 snow cones (syrup-soaked ice shavings), posed for £15 pictures with cardboard cut-outs, and waved plastic sticks, which had miraculously become £18 magic wands. Behold the bewitching power of branding. The creators of Frozen, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, tell me that they set out to create characters young girls would recognise. Frozen: The Princess Diary Brands are said to be in decline. After all, who wants to say no to their princess?
On July 1, 1941, baseball fans watching the Brooklyn Dodgers game on WNBT witnessed a breakthrough in marketing. For 10 long seconds, before the first pitch, their black-and-white screens showed a fixed image of a clock, superimposed on a map of the United States. A voice-over, from the watchmaker Bulova, intoned: “America runs on Bulova time.” It was the first official TV advertisement in U.S. history. As anyone who watched the Super Bowl knows, TV advertising has evolved from frozen images and voice-overs to stories so entertaining that we occasionally shush each other in order to hear them. The history of affordable news and entertainment in America is, in many respects, a chronicle of advertising’s successful shifts from one medium to the next. “We’re in the midst of something similar today with our phones,” Lears told me recently. This may seem like good news—many ads, after all, are annoying and intrusive. This deficit of imagination stems, in part, from a deficit of information.

DIY Glass Jewelry DIY Glass Jewelry Hello and welcome to my nail polish jewelery tutorial! A ton of you have been requesting this, and I'm sorry it has taken me a few weeks to put it together, but I was waiting on more earrings in the mail before I could finish! Using very few supplies and some nail polish, you can create amazing, one-of-a-kind pieces to add to your jewelery collection. I wear a different polish ring almost every day and not a day goes by when someone doesn't ask me about my ring. (Where did you get it? What? This is insanely long with a lot of pictures so keep reading to see the rest of the tutorial! Here's what you'll need to create your own polish jewelery: - Clear glass cabochons - Ring bases/blanks, or earring posts + backings, or pendants - Superglue - A clothespin (not shown) - Nail polishes! The superglue I use is just plain old liquid superglue that I got from Born Pretty with some fimo canes, but superglue gel apparently works great also. I'll start with rings. Tada! Paint your base color last.

Russia One Tram (R1) - Future Commuter Train Dubbed as 'iPhone on Rails' Russia One Tram (R1) - Future Commuter Train Dubbed as 'iPhone on Rails' If Bruce Wayne ever realized just how much gas the Batmobile guzzled and he decided to go green, Russia’s future commuter train, which was just unveiled at the Innoprom 2014 industrial expo, would be the Battrain. Ilya Varlamov Called the Russia One (or R1), this sinister-looking train could've come straight from a Sci-Fi flick, or maybe it's just the railway to hell. With shiny black glass, an illuminated display, and touchscreen operated doors, it’s no wonder the locomotive's already been dubbed the “iPhone on rails”. It also comes as no surprise that the R1 was designed by Uralvagonzavod (or UVZ for the linguistically challenged), a company that specializes in tanks. Ilya Varlamov The Devil's tank, errr... the tram, is super high-tech, both inside and out, thanks to WiFi, GPS, and LED mood lighting that changes according to the weather and time of day. As much as a gigantic, menacing train can. And check out those sexy felt-covered sofas in the back. You know, like Russian tundra.
Outlandish concepts submitted for London bridge competition There has been plenty of opposition to London's proposed Garden Bridge based on its design, location and management. Now, however, a new bridge further up the Thames has grabbed people's attention. Designs for the proposed Nine Elms to Pimlico bridge range from the understated to the absurd. View all The competition seeking designs for the Nine Elms to Pimlico bridge was launched in early December last year as part of a regeneration plan for the Nine Elms area. "The design must work alongside the cutting edge architecture emerging on the south bank as well as the elegant frontages on the north," says leader of Wandsworth Council and co-chair of the Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership Ravi Govindia. The submitted designs are being exhibited publicly in London this week. Although this design is perhaps not the most pleasing to the eye, it's by no means ugly. Of all the design submissions, this is the one that perhaps most looks like it's meant to be there. Share Outlandish concepts submitted for London bridge competition
Skywalk at the Tianmen Mountain (China) It is certainly not a path for the faint of heart – on one side there's a sheer rock face, on the other, a 4,000ft drop. All that separates the brave traveler from a deadly plunge is a 3' wide, 2'5" thick walkway. If that is not enough to bring terror into the pit of your stomach, the path running alongside a Chinese mountainside is made out of glass, allowing a crystal-clear view of where one false step can take you. The skywalk is situated 4,700' above sea level on the side of the Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie, China. Brewster's Discovery Walkway (Canada) This stunning viewing platform called Brewster's Discovery Walkway has been designed by Canadian firm Sturgess Architecture in collaboration with engineers RJC and construction company PCL. Crouching Tiger and Turtle (Germany) Dubbed “Crouching Tiger and Turtle, Magic Mountain,” the walkway roller coaster measures 11 meters high and features an excellent view of the surrounding landscape. 10 Coolest Walkways

1001 The stolen image The theoretical assumption that every single work of art is based on a preceding work is the theme of the exhibition organised by Thomas Demand at the Fondazione Prada di Milano. The German artist, once again assuming the role of curator, explains to our readers the story and the reasons behind this exhibition. Thomas Demand The beginning of design The Chinese architect Wang Shu is the first in his huge country to have been awarded the prestigious Pritzker Prize. We present his teaching activity, which he has been pursuing alongside his design work since 2001, when he founded an actual School of Architecture in Hangzhou to train students in the technical and practical principles of the profession. Wang Shu Design meets materials In Treviso, a one-year project offered over 100 IUAV students and recent graduates direct experience with the industrial production of furniture.
A Mixture Of Tradition And Technology European market leader in neon design and production, Sygns, established its new brand Kiën. The first product “Licht1“ was introduced on IFA TecWatch in September. Now Kien is eager to enter the smart home market. The lamp “Licht1“ combines traditional handcraft with puristic design and technical expertise. Every light is handcrafted in Germany by manufacturers that specialize in 3D printing and laser cutting. Concerning the appearance, customers can personalize the design individually by choosing out of three materials: aluminum, concrete and wood. While this functional design piece resembles a traditional fluorescent tube, its inner workings are astonishing. The company plans to soon launch a campaign on Kickstarter.
