“Following up on past collaborations with artists like George Condo, American designer Adam Kimmel has just embarked on a new project with painter Dan Attoe. In a short film co-directed by Kimmel and his wife, actress Leelee Sobieski, entitled DAN ATTOE MAKES A PAINTING, we get to follow Attoe into the mystical mountains of the Pacific Northwest as he paints. Toward the end of the film, we also see Attoe go head to head with a bigfoot creature he encounters in the woods — watch the video above to see how it all turns out. (via: De Jeunes Gens Modernes)”
Great little video and write up taken from my friends over at Rake Online regarding the craftsmanship of Persol sunglasses.
“THE RAKE team’s eyes are generally shaded from the harsh Singaporean sun by lunettes from either Ray-Ban or Persol, brands that satisfy our yen for the legitimate, heritage-rich, elegantly classic, and beautifully built. Testament to its fulfillment of that final criteria, the latter Italian eyewear manufacturer recently released a jazzy short film exposing – in the manner so beloved of this magazine – the handcraftsmanship behind Persol’s wares.

Every creative company needs an “idea lab”. To me, giving creative as much space as will put your company way ahead of the competition. Let them play, experiment and think outside of the box.
“Producing indoor and outdoor products since the 1980s, iconic Spanish furniture brand Santa & Cole is one of the lesser-known but more innovative design firms in existence. The forward-thinking company continues to expand into a full-service operation, opening a nursery to supply architects and designers with the trees to go along with their projects.”
GoodWood x Lavish Livez
Goodwood is known for their serious collaborations. From Marcus Troy, to Pusha T of Play Toys. They continue to push the envelope. I was happy to see the Homie Paul Chin of come up with a sick original concept. Enjoy the video.
The fantastic interactivity aside, the SWYP concept is beautifully designed. Compact, sleek and elegant the printer’s form strays drastically from contemporary ink-jet space hogs. The foldable, semi-fabric paper tray fits seamlessly into the body of the printer, keeping it compact while also acting as the on/off switch. To check the ink push a button and the color screen fades revealing the printer’s guts without prying open the case. This product has really taken the consumer into consideration in terms of ease of use, fun, and performance.
With no set release date the SWYP is an excellent look at the potential of printers. This new take on a stagnant device offers an exciting view of the future and promise of consumer based printing.
