The Best of Bankside at London Design Festival 2015 South of the Thames, 'Bankside' is LDF's newest design district, and home to the iconic Oxo Tower Wharf, which is filled year-round with over 30 independent retail design studios, exhibition spaces and shops offering furniture, jewellery, homeware, and fashion.

Designersblock at Oxo Tower Wharf. The Kirigram collection by Constanze Schweda.

Linkage 3.0.11 Beta « Dave's Blog February 14th, 2016 There is a new version of the Linkage program here: I changed and fixed a few things… Fixed bug that kept sliders from being "split" from their slide path (made to not be sliders).

The Chairless Chair exoskeleton lets you sit down anywhere, anytime The Chairless Chair is an exoskeleton that attaches to your legs and lets you sit back, as if you’re sitting on a chair — but, in the words of Morpheus, there is no chair. Rather than relying on the tensile strength of solid wood or plastic and the gravity-defying nature of three or more supporting legs, the Chairless Chair uses clever battery-powered mechanics to achieve the same effect. When turned off, the Chairless Chair allows you to walk around normally. Early versions of the Chair are fairly chunky — you’ll certainly look mechatronic — but presumably future versions might be slim enough to hide innocuously beneath your pants.

Eric Brunt's Flux Snowshoes Transform With Each Step I love seeing this kind of nuts-and-bolts industrial design. Seattle-based designer Eric Brunt observed that what makes snowshoes work is their increased surface area, which enables the wearer to "float" atop the surface. But that increased surface area also means that the wearer has to walk like s/he's in a Monty Python sketch.
How to Select the Right Adhesive for Your Material Bonding Project The most common questions asked by adhesive bonding manufacturers.
