Vernier Panton

Vernier Panton is such an amazing artist and so influential to me!  He really embraced and pushed the futurist, space-age style of the 60’s and created environments, not just restaurants, bars or hotels, with his designs.

These Aint No Dancin Shoes

Ever get in a blog rut?  I definitely got into a big one with this post! I wanted to show you guys some amazing larger-than-life shoes, and somehow….. BLOG PHOTOSHOP RUT. Anyway, these definitely aint no dancin shoes – these shoes are made for walkin.  To and from fashion week.

I obviously love over-the-top shoe design. Shoes are such an awesome combination of art, industrial design, fashion and architecture, and I always love looking for each one of those components in a high-fashion shoe.  These are some designs from one of my favorite shoe brand, United Nude.

I hope these give you some eye nourishment.

Stop Motion Industrial Design Love

I saw this creative, cute video on linkedin this morning, posted by the CEO at IDEO, Tim Brown. So creative wonderful and personal because it shows how much the designer, Elger Oberwelz, really loved what he designed. And isn’t that all any of us ever really want? A project we love so much that we make a stop-motion movie about it in our free time? :)

I’ve owned my Denis Guidone watch for about 2 years already, and I love it. This new design of his is based on a similar concept to my Tempo Libero, but using gradients giving “the illusion that the hands are leaving trails of color.” Hat tip to Moddea.

Déjà Vu Watch by Denis Guidone for Projects

The Déjà Vu watch is the latest work of Italian designer Denis Guidone for Projects Watches. Prints on two disks, one of which is transparent, give the illusion that the hands are leaving trails of color. I like how the gradient represents the passage of time.

Déjà Vu Watch, $130.00
The watch is available with hands in three colors: blue, white, and yellow.

ID: Dansk

I’m BACK IN THE HABIT! – Sister Act 2 reference!

According to wikipedia, dansk is “…a North Germanic language spoken by around six million people, principally in the country of Denmark.” BUT, it also is the amazing style of rounded wooden housewares and furniture, typical of the danish aesthetic of the 1960’s (mid-century modern). It is very famous and beloved, but also, now that there is this 60’s-‘modern’-revival thing happening, occasionally it is supa expensive. But if you are lucky, and hone your garage sale hunting skills, you can find some beautiful pieces of this stuff for pretty cheap.  And look at it! It is worth the hunting.

(By the way, Wary Meyers, who I talked about a while back are HUGE fans of the ‘dansk’ style and always use it so well in their rooms…)

ID: Cool Cubicles

So, (forgive me for mentioning it) back-to-school is looming!, and this will be my last back-to-school for my undergrad! (Therefore, in my mind, it will be my last back-to-school… ever!)  I am excited and stressing and nervous and cravin it.  The only thing is, I have a big exam coming up right before school, which effectively taints a lot of the good back-to-school stuff (e.g. it ruins ‘fresh bouquets of pencils’, getting to wear fall jackets for the first time, meeting up with friends you haven’t seen all summer!, settling into a new version of home once more, making and getting to eat soup, all things pumpkin-related, etc…)

Anyway, with studying on the brain, for the ID post this week, I thought I’d show you guys some desk enclosures, cool cubicles and study spaces.
