Boxetti team has been contacted by area magazine's editing group for the publication of BOXETTI SOUND, in special issue "Ouverture 2012 - Design On/Off". The exhibition, curated by the editor, Prof. Arch. Marco Casamonti, seeked to explore the result of innovative work done, in collaboration with Area's editors, in industrial design on a selection of works (case studies) that express their value and meaning in opening, revealing, and metamorphosis. With Vittorio Marchis's technical contribution and Dimitris Kozaris's film work, the exhibition explores the themes of movement, opening and closing. Among the most important pieces in this particular project, the curator has chosen the product BOXETTI LUNCH, to exhibit in the midst of an evocative setting. www.archea.it/en/ouverture-2012-design-onoff/
While smartphones nowadays are quite capable, one thing is definitely lacking: individuality. Everybody's got the same friggin' phones ( read: iPhone ), and with Apple's 2 year cycle redesign, even if your phone isn't the same, it still looks it (4S vs plain old 4). Killspencer addresses this with their iPhone Veils. Shaped to fit the back of an iPhone 4/4S perfectly and doubling as protection from scratches, the Veils set your iPhone apart from the rest of the world's, if only when viewed from the backside. Application is peel and stick, and leaves no residue.

For this Thursday we’ve made a series that captures a transitioning of day into night within a single photograph. In fact, this is going to be about a fine art project Stephen Wilkes has produced about New York in the beautiful patches of day and night . “Day to Night embodies a combination of my favorite things to photograph; people on the street melded with epic cityscapes, and the fleeting moments throughout the day and night,” noted the author. Well, we should admit that these exceptionally well done photographs add a surreal dimension to various iconic New York places. To split the landscapes from AM to PM and create such a surrealist effect, Stephen kept his camera at a fixed angle for up to 15 hours, then weaved and blended the shots into one frame. Let’s now contemplate all the bustle of the city within these breathtaking shots.
Looking at the numbers above, you'll immediately notice that you are different ages on the different planets. This brings up the question of how we define the time intervals we measure. What is a day?

Whether you’re a designer, developer, animator, or blogger, your workstation plays a major role in how you get things done. Some of us like a neat, clean, and inspiring workspace, while others require a crazy over-the-top hardware configuration. In this article, we’ve compiled a showcase of photos that will give you workstation envy. The thing about workstations is that even if you have a nice one, seeing another awesome setup can make you a bit jealous.
