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.

Forgot Your Password?

In summer 2012 the social network LinkedIn.com got hacked and lost its whole user database. A few months later parts of the decrypted password list surfaced on the Internet. These eight volumes contain 4.7 million LinkedIn clear text user passwords printed in alphabetical order. Visitors are invited to look up their own password.

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.

Bam

Lapka BAM is a beautifully designed accessory for your phone that estimates blood alcohol content from a breath sample and allows you to track your measurements over time, compare them with friends and shape the party. The device fits in your palm, and when you hold it in a fist, the edge of your hand becomes the mouthpiece. The device is wireless — no synchronization is required. It calibrates automatically and professionally via Lapka servers using your device ID.

Nine by Four

Ninebyfour is an archetypical tubelight fixture, crafted from an atypical material; wood. This is possible through the use of energy efficient Philips LED light tubes. These LED light tubes eliminate the bulk of electronics necessary for traditional neon tube light. And the light does not warm up during use, allowing for the use of wood and cork. And-and; the led tube will probably out-live those born before 1980.

Into Nothingness

Paul Bauer is a graphic designer and self-taught photographer based in Vienna, Austria. He graduated from the School of Applied Sciences in Graz and currently works as a part-time freelancer. Paul took a series of pictures on top of the “Dachstein-Glacier”, one of the highest spots in Austria.

Chocolate Paint

Chocolates like a set of oil paints. Tubes in a box of paints contain a variety of colours, and these chocolates a variety of flavoured syrups. The labels indicate each chocolate’s flavour and also function as wrappers, keeping fingers clean for eating. A design that combines the childhood excitement of opening a new box of paints and the thrill of opening a box of chocolates you’ve been given unexpectedly.

Gramophone

In the late 1800s, Thomas Edison introduced the phonograph, and just like that, life had a soundtrack. This Gramophone borrowed the iconic speaker horn from those early machines to amplify sound with the power of pure physics. Simply set your iPad or iPhone in the solid wood dock, and the metal horn will boost its volume by three to four times, with no need for electricity. Just don’t tell Mr. Edison.

In the Rain

Cristophe Jacrot is a French photographer who is fascinated by skywater. Drops of rain on windows or rain falling on the ground turns into art when Jacrot has his camera at hand. The raindrops on a window makes bright colors blur and reflect in a special way.
