Edouard Spriet shared a super elegant web design project for a travel app called Rimowa,  one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of premium travel and carry-on luggage made of aluminum and polycarbonate. As a luxury brand, Rimowa needs a collaborative platform to showcase and share the latest news and collaborations between the brand and major or emergent artists. And acting as a premium provider, the suitcase manufacturer needed an app offering an exclusive service: bring together all the travel data from every airline to create a unique offer. From flight delays, information to luggage picking up, checking-in and tracking, Rimowa will be the major crossroads for all of its owners Continue reading

Japanese Design Studio Turns Traditional Cuckoo Clocks on Their Head With Three Minimal Designs

Japanese design studio Nendo has turned the cuckoo clock on its head with three modern versions of the traditionally German-crafted object designed for clock company Lemnos. The minimal designs combine naturally finished wood with white painted faces, and each include a motorized bird that pops from the bottom, top, or side of the straight-edged works.

Nendo’s bookend design splits the clock’s face so the two parts of the piece can nestle around one or several books. The tilted version is shifted to rest on its roof rather than base, and the dented clock is carved from a single block with its negative space forming the same birdhouse shape of the other works. You can see more objects by Nendo, including this cuckoo clock watch and stand created for the Swiss watch brand Maurice Lacroix, on their website.

She wanted to create an installation that would draw attention to the inefficiency of plastic waste recycling and chose to focus on a Japanese Maneki-neko cat as a symbol of a mass-produced object that is commonly made in China. Continue reading
