43,000 Feet

On his way to a statistics conference, John Wilkins is the victim of a freak accident, sucked out of the plane when an emergency door fails mid-flight. Realising he has several minutes before he hits the ground, he reflects on his past, formulates a plan for hitting the ground, and rehearses what he will say to the media on the off-chance that he survives.

Pacemaker

DJing is great fun and full of creative possibilities but often means having to buy expensive gear and be limited to only use music from local files. Pacemaker for iPad completely changes this with its beautiful interface, ease of use and Spotify’s music library built right in.

You can admire the careful process of assembling in the video. The Solo Cello is the first in a collection to be launched next year.

AZL Headquarters

The AZL Pension Fund Headquarters is an extension to an existing office building dating from the 1940s, in the center of Heerlen, the Netherlands. The old part of this building was constructed during a wealthy era of coal mining. The extension was completed in 1995 by Wiel Arets Architects, a local architect who operates world wide. WAA chose to use perforated steel plates, slabs of concrete and hints of black next to the old brick walls. On one side, a wide opening in the concrete boosts the buildings character.

Transformation

Roman Sakovich is a UK based Photographer. His work investigates the development of an evolving post-Soviet society and the attendant cultural changes in a progressive world.

A Van in the Sea

In 2011 Alessandro decided to buy an old (but super well constructed) motorhome, Hymer 1983 and move it along the south coast of Portugal in some of his favorite places along the european coast. He did that to be able to realise his personal photography project. This is a small series of images Alessandro took when going to bed over the course of 2013.

+cinco

+cinco is a set of tableware utensils from Portugese designers Miguel Lopes and André Meca. The name +cinco simply comes from ‘five’ for the five elements that this set contains. The set consists of a salad bowl, a bottle for olive oil and one for vinegar together with a three-pieced condiments set and a set of containers for sauces. With the use of porcelain and cork, Lopes and Meca developed something nice to look at when having an awkward dinner.

Stainless

Adam Magyar took our daily lives as inspiration for this video. He filmed people as he flies past them on the subway. This enabled him to capture everyone off-guard. Magyar shot the video in a high frame rate, 50 frames per second. Beautiful to see random faces filmed like this.

Round

Round is a small and smart table lamp that generates a beautifully diffused beam of light. At first, the lamp looks out of proportions when comparing the arm and head. But because of the elegantly curved arm, Round is perfectly balanced at second thought. The soft indirect light makes Round your new best friend on your desk or reading table. Industrial designer Bao-Nghi Droste lives and works as a product designer in Heidelberg, Germany. He has made a respectable line of products with curves as a recognizable style feature.

Belgian autumn

In the autumn of 1985, a series of brutal robberies and murders were committed. ‘The Gang of Nivelles’ were known for being heavily armed and not being so interested in the loot. In total, 28 victims died because of the gang. The most curious part in this case: in spite of a thorough police investigation (a file of almost three million pages), found evidence and witness accounts, the criminals were never busted. Jan Rosseel, a victims’ son, remained with questions. These dark shots are based on some of the clues that Rosseel has found over the years.
