Tree planters are often placed on the streets with good intentions of adding a necessary boost of green space, yet they can often become neglected within large sprawling cities where no one takes direct responsibility. Martindale hopes that his Outside the Planter projects encourage people to have more direct participation and interest in their shared public spaces. As he states: “We all have stakes in our shared environments, and this public project directly engages with Toronto’s urban fabric. One of the primary intents of the Outside the Planter Boxes project is to encourage more direct participation and interest in our shared public spaces - to demonstrate that the public can play a more consciously active role in how our city is shaped.” The project was supported by a Toronto FEAST Grant and Sean asked participants not to cause any major permanent damage as the installations were not authorized by the City of Toronto. + Outside the Planter + Sean Martindale Via INSPIX

Beautiful Land Art Découverte de Walter Mason, un artiste allemand spécialisé dans la création d’oeuvres de Land Art. En intervenant dans la nature, il parvient à obtenir des compositions poétiques splendides. Une sélection de ses oeuvres est à découvrir dans la suite de l’article. GIRAFFE (Spatial Divider, 2010) Contemporary office spaces are based on the flexible open plan principle. However, this lay out jeopardizes individual space and dilutes group dynamics. GIRAFFE is a portable spatial divider. It creates a visual enclosure for those who are sitting behind it but does not interfere in the general openness of a room. It is also a pin board and a hub for wired connections (Ethernet, electrical).

Designers Spin Spidey-Worthy Webs From Packing Tape Packing tape has gotten MacGyver out of many a jam, but he never managed to make an entire home out of the stuff. So he could probably learn something from Viennese/Croatian design collective For Use/Numen. The team uses nothing but packing tape to create huge, self-supporting cocoons that visitors could climb inside and explore. Installed three times in the past year, the next deployment will be next week from June 9–13 at DMY Berlin's International Design Fair, which is now in its 8th year. The installations, which look like the work of horrifyingly large arachnids, grew in scale and scope as the year progressed, first deployed inside a small Croatian gallery, then an abandoned attic during October’s Vienna Design Week. At the last installation inside Odeon, a former stock exchange building in Vienna, the group used nearly 117,000 feet and 100 pounds of tape.

Elipson I Habitat – Rencontre au sommet du design et du son avec les enceintes Timber et Lenny Les enceintes Bluetooth Timber et Lenny, lancées à l’occasion de cette rentrée, signent le premier acte d’une rencontre inédite entre Habitat, éditeur de design depuis 1964 et Elipson, marque audio haut de gamme à qui l’on doit notamment la mythique enceinte BS 50 (Lire l’article) ou plus récemment la Planet L (Lire l’article). Jean-Yves Le Porcher, directeur de la création d’Elipson et le designer Pierre Favresse, aujourd’hui directeur du design chez Habitat, ont travaillé de concert pour livrer ces créations sans fioritures et gadgets inutiles; les deux premières d’une gamme future complète d’équipements audio. Hommage aux traditionnelles enceintes “bûches”, Timber séduit par ses lignes hexagonales pures où se mêlent bois brut, aluminium brossé et élégant tissu en 3D qui dissimule avec subtilité une technologie de pointe. (Prix indicatif: 199 Euros) Quant à Lenny, inspirée des manches à air des bateaux, elle fait écho aux formes arrondies iconiques des créations d’Elipson.

Luzinterruptus: Literature vs Traffic Well, Spanish art collective Luzinterruptus is at it again. This past June the group travelled to Australia to create a massive, traffic-stopping installation using thousands of glowing books scattered across Federation Square in Melbourne. Titled "Literature vs Traffic" the installation was created using books that had been collected by the Salvation Army after being discarded from public libraries. The project aimed to take control of public space and install itsel in the streets, stealing precious space from the dense traffic in the area. Find out more about the project here. via [Architizer]

Unique Dome Garden Offers an Unforgettable Eco "Glamping" Adventure Just 2 Hours from London There are 10 domes in all and they come in four different sizes. Depending on the size of each family and budget, visitors to The Dome Garden can request a 12, 16, 20, or 24 ft dome. The skeleton is made from either coppiced ash or galvanized steel – depending on the size – and then wrapped in watertight PVC. All of the domes are equipped with wood burners, water for the shower is heated by super-efficient boilers, and excess heat that rises to the top of the dome is fed into a recycled glass box at the base, which keeps the rooms nice and cozy overnight. Solar panels are currently being installed to provide electricity, but rocket stoves are already used for cooking, and ambience tends to dictate the little electricity is used anyway. + The Dome Garden Via Gizmag
