8 million colourful flower petals rain down on an entire Costa Rican village to promote Sony’s new HD TVs. We dare you not to fall in love with this video!
Oh no. Today is the last day of our Brazil Week guys. Are you sad? No? Well – you should be. But before you go off drowning your sorrows in pear cider and carbohydrates, we still have a fair bit of hot Brazilian action to get through. Hooray! So without further ado, please make some noise for Part II Round-up of Smokin’ Hot Brazilian Architecture.
We know, we know – every freaking design blog and website out there seems to be rounding up Brazilian Architecture because of The FIFA World Cup 2014 currently in it’s finals week in Brazil. Ours is a little late because it took just a liiiiitle bit of research. You see, we wanted to dig a little deeper into the amazing design and architecture, both historic and current, and bring you a whole week of awesome Brazil related content. I guess you could say we are literally giving you The Full Brazilian all week. Ouch! Except this one won’t hurt, and it’s completely appropriate for all age groups.
Moving Mountains is a Brooklyn-based design studio with a Hawaiian twist, established by designer Syrette Lew. As the company name suggests, Moving Mountains is a practice that wants to move beyond the boundaries of industrial design to the convergence of design, art, and fashion. The studio prides itself on creating a diverse range of hand-made products focused on a refined sense of simplicity and artful functionality.
OBJECT FUTURE II is the second in a series of exhibitions that survey the latest design practice in Australia. The show opens on June 27 at Allpress Studio in Melbourne’s Collingwood. This independently organised and curated design exhibition will showcase the work by Australian based designers, offering a platform for emerging and established designers to exhibit ideas-based products.
Sweden – top three in my list of places I’d be from if I wasn’t from here. Elding Oscarson – similarly top-ranking in the sort of architects I’d be if I was in that league. So what joy today’s post brings – it’s a house in Sweden by Elding Oscarson! We’re out on a peninsula jutting westwards into the sound separating Sweden from Denmark (also top three). In the town of Mölle, stands this Y-shaped house for a young family. The architect’s statement explains that the funny shape was hit upon to address views to all corners of the site, not just the ocean views. I’m normally wary of anything that isn’t a right angle, but there are always exceptions.
