Processing.org The Making Of Living Art for Apple's New iPad Dieter Rams On Good Design As A Key Business Advantage Dieter Rams is best-known for his work at Braun--where he revolutionized the design of electronics--and his indelible influence on Apple’s Jony Ive. But he has had a decisive hand in another, much smaller company: Vitsœ, a British manufacturer that has been producing Rams’s modular shelving system for 50 years. To mark his 80th birthday, the German master has allowed Vitsœ to release the transcript of the speech he delivered in New York in 1976, in which he articulates his ethos of user-centered design and some of his famous 10 commandments. In 2012, they feel as if they were written yesterday. Enjoy--Ed. Here’s the speech in its entirety: Ladies and gentlemen, design is a popular subject today. The introduction of good design is needed for a company to be successful. Unwavering emphasis on functionality The ideas behind my work as a designer have to match with a company’s objectives. [/figure] I am convinced that a well-thought-out design is decisive to the quality of a product.

Un sistema innovativo per distillare segnali dal rumore o un’aggregazione predatoria e poco sostenibile? Nelle reti sociali si sta discutendo molto di Flipboard, un’applicazione gratuita per iPad che permette di creare un social magazine dinamico su misura del lettore. Lanciata il 20 luglio, ha suscitato subito grande interesse, a partire dalla segnalazione di Robert Scoble sul suo blog Scobleizer. Tant’è che, di lì a poco, il numero di richieste degli utenti ha reso inaccessibile l’applicazione per alcune ore. La pagina principale di Flipboard assembla in tempo reale le notizie di diversi siti e i contenuti condivisi dai propri amici su Facebook e Twitter, aggiornandoli periodicamente. Tre elementi di rottura Bruno Walther ha sviluppato una brillante analisi di come Flipboard stia creando un nuovo modello di consumo dei contenuti nella rete. Infine il terzo elemento: gli analytics.

architects and designers IDEO Creates Three Visions for Books in the Digital Age | Co.Design The endless hand-wringing over the death of print books -- and its supposed corollary, diminished intellectualism -- overlooks a key point: Digital media can actually enhance how we read. So says the innovation and design giant IDEO, which yesterday released a short film on "The Future of the Book" that blows the binding off conventional notions of how we consume the written word. In Ideo's telling, tomorrow's books will let you join online discussions, fact-check, and even dictate the particulars of a plot -- all in a tablet-friendly format. Nelson Nelson is all about expanding how we understand text. Coupland This concept is the social network of publishing. Alice Alice is a cross between a video game and Choose Your Own Adventure. Are we seeing the videogamization of reading? For an excellent interview with IDEO's Duane Bray and Robert Lenne about "The Future of the Book," go the Brian Lehrer Show's Web site here.

sobees Southern in the City: No Sew Faux Roman Shades I've officially lived in my apartment for a year. So far, this apartment is in the running to be my favorite and if you've been reading this blog for awhile, you know that I've lived in quite a few places since moving to NYC in 2006. I'm a fan of older homes with charm and character and this place has it. It might not have all the modern conveniences of other places I've lived in, but it has personality and that's what I love the most. My building was built in the 1920's and at the time it was somewhat of a "scandal" because it was one of the first non-brownstone apartment buildings on the block. There's great molding, high ceilings, real hardwood floors and large windows just to name a few. Since moving last year, I've quickly tried to make it feel homey. I don't think I'll ever really be "finished" with decorating but that's half the fun. Here is the window as it was before. I found this teal Ikat dot fabric at Mood Fabric in the Fashion District and LOVE it.
