An impressive sculpture conceived by the artist Willem Van Weeghel entitled “Dynamic Structure 29117 ″. Movements realized thanks to the 32 independent lines which move and form random structures. The whole is controlled by a computing system. via Fubiz.

Working on a pro bono basis, Landor Associates has created two distinct wayfinding systems for Great Ormond Street childrens’ Hospital (GOSH).

The first (which has already been implemented) sees each of the hospital’s six buildings take on a particular colour identity to make navigation through the various buildings easier. And the second, which has been specifically devised for the yet-to-be completed Llewelyn Davies Yeang designed Morgan Stanley Clinic Building (MSCB), is based on the natural world. A host of different animal characters will help visitors to the building find their way around, as well as put children at ease in the environment… read more

Stefan Sagmeister’s new website offers a glimpse into his studio’s working life: the homepage features a live webcam while interaction is via vinyl graphic ‘buttons’ stuck on the floor

Sagmeister’s sites have always departed somewhat from the portfolio-based norm – the last one, for example, being a headache-inducing clash of colour and type which was more endurance test than pleasant browsing experience.

The new site creates an interface out of a series of vinyl stickers applied to the studio floor and shot from directly above by a live webcam. So now the world can thrill to the site of a bustling modern design studio at work ie designers sitting in front of screens for hours on end with their headphones on, rising occasionally to get more coffee/relieve themselves/go shopping for more skinny jeans and overpriced trainers . And presumably clients can keep an eye on things too…

No doubt Sagmeister’s detractors will see it as an exercise in vanity but it’s certainly a fresh and intriguing way to tackle an issue which all design studios struggle endlessly with – the dreaded studio website.

The Conran Shop’s windows are now looking suitably seasonal, with colourful design products placed in a landscape of white wooden Christmas trees and a carpet of ceramic mushrooms…

The wooden trees (there are over 300 between the two Conran Shops in London’s Chelsea and Marylebone) were all hand made from recycled wooden pallets by the Hastings and Bexhill Wood Recycling Project. They vary in size but many are for sale, costing between £15 to £200 – with 50% of money raised going back to the Sussex based recycling project which looks to recycle unwanted wood, and offer training and job opportunities to long-term unemployed.

‘tape installation’, odeon vienna

‘tape installation’ by for croatian design collective use/numen is made of  tendons of transparent multi-layered  adhesive tape which are stretched between the columns of an ex-stock exchange building. the continuous wrapping of tendons results in a complex, amorphous surface through the process reminiscent of growing of organic forms.

530 rolls of transparent self adhesive tape (35600m, 45kg)

the idea of the installation originates in a set design concept for a dance performance in which the form evolves from the movement of the dancers between the pillars. the dancers are stretching the tape while they move, so the resulting shape is (tape) recording of the choreography.

presented by vienna design week embassy, ‘tape installation’ will be showcased at DMY 2010 in berlin. a previously exhibited variation of the ‘tape installation’ at has been featured on designboom. for more information, see here. via designboom.
