About Oscar Diaz studied design at the Ecole des Beaux Arts of Bordeaux, in France, and after working for Matali Crasset in Paris, he enrolled in the Design Products MA at the Royal College of Art in London ( then under the direction of Ron Arad ) where he graduated in 2006. He then worked briefly in Japan designing furniture, before returning to London to establish his own practice in 2007. His work is not defined by a style, but rather by a way of understanding, exploring and questioning objects, while considering their context and the cultural associations embedded on them. It is this attention to the context where an object will live, that allows him to work at both ends of the design spectrum.
Oscar Diaz is a product designer based in London where he works on self-initiated and commissioned projects for both cultural and commercial contexts. by May 24

The humble foosball table, that fixture of fraternity houses and tech startups, has just gone glam. After all, just because you read the Robb Report doesn't mean you can't appreciate the simple pleasures of slamming beers while bashing a little ball around, right? Now "The Beautiful Game," a glossy, chrome-limned $68,000 foosball table designed by Gro , provides plebeian amusement and patrician luxury at once. Gro's table is apparently inspired by life-sized football stadiums.

22 Cool Artworks Made from Computer Keyboards Many decades ago, when typewriters were more common than the computer or its keyboard, learning how to type was a great deal. In fact, many people would enroll in typing classes so that they could learn how to type, which may now sound like an absurd idea. However, with the advent of computers a few decades ago, most people began to realize that the QWERTY keyboards aren’t exotic but were now here to stay. Now, computer keyboards are so omnipresent that they have almost become the universal mode of communication, and the QWERTY keypad can be seen on not just computers but also cellphones, and other devices.

It seems emoticons are taking over the world, doesn’t it? I put one in almost every one of my tweets, and I just love them. It’s crazy to me how much emotion a person can convey in a few symbols put together.

"Artoyz est une société créée en 2003 par 4 passionnés de culture graphique. La découverte de figurines d'un genre nouveau nées en Asie à la fin du siècle dernier a plus qu'éveillé leurs sens et ils décidèrent de fonder un shop en ligne afin de partager leurs découvertes.
7 ans après, Artoyz est devenue la marque incontournable dans l'univers du toy design en France et en Europe, de l'objet de décoration sous forme de figurines, et le mot "Art Toy" est même rentré dans les moeurs (bientôt dans le dictionnaire ?)" by Mar 10
