I love the subtle sprout in the rear of this stool seat that playfully implies a saddle and also serves as a short handle or a place to loop your bag and sweater. The Bronco Stool, designed by Guillaume Delvigne for super-ette. To view more by this artist, see his porcelain bowl that can be embroidered in this DV post.
The clean, minimal layout of the Cass Art packaging allows the stock and the paint medium to express the quality of the product. The result is a bold, textural statement about the unique performance of each paper pad. Lovely and inspirational! Designed by Pentagram.

Beautiful identity work for the TextielMuseum and TextielLab in the Netherlands by Raw Color. Next to hosting exhibitions about textile and design at the Museum, the Lab produces and develops textile projects with contemporary designers and artists. The letters T, M and L overlap with different opacities and color combinations, and the design quickly becomes its own woven textile, especially when repeated.

Once again, I've disappeared, and perhaps you're wondering where I've been. Well, my friends and I entered an international design competition and we were selected as one of twenty finalists for the Street Seats Design Challenge. The next week and a half will be very, very busy, because we are building a full-scale bench to be installed on the Fort Point Channel of Boston!
If you would like to see the bench in person, the opening day is Saturday, 4/27, from 1-3pm. You can vote on your favorite bench, enjoy tasty food trucks, and mingle with the benches' designers. I hope to see you there!
Here is our full bench description:
"The Chroma Bench was inspired by colors, patterns and materiality of the maritime environment. The seating surface is a contemporary interpretation of linear decking found on classic wooden runabout boats. The rear “billboard” of the bench was influenced by the vibrant water hues observed underneath the Evelyn Moakley Bridge.
Triangular colored panels create an optical effect on the back of the bench. As walkers pass by, their direction determines what color is visible. This element of discovery will intrigue visitors and foster conversation about the piece.
The Chroma Bench is intentionally high-backed to protect from noise and wind, to make a “billboard” for the rear color feature, and to create an intimate sitting experience."
Soundmachines is an interesting instrument for translating and performing electronic music. It consists of three units resembling standard record players, which translate concentric visual patterns into control signals for further processing in any music software. The rotation of the discs, each holding three tracks, can be synced to a sequencer. Designed by The Product.
