Wood Skins

Bio-Knit

Recyclable, single-material sneakers! The soles could use more work, but a great application of 3-D knitting tech.

 

 

Shylights

Having admired their work at last year’s Dutch Design Week, I was thrilled to discover Studio Drift has created Shylight, a kinetic light sculpture that unfolds and retreats during a 30 foot (9 meter) fall. The choreographed motions mimic the same action of blooming flowers or the billowing of parachutes. Now permanently installed at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Material Valley

Objects and textures and palettes - oh my. Loads of inspiration from a top materials and finishes colleague. Thanks for sharing, J!

Steel Fox

Want.

LeManoosh

Obsessed. Thanks, D!

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
