Quoted from designboom.com:

“during tokyo design week 09 designboom visited the DMN design workshop exhibition (vol.10). together with in-house designers of several companies, the japanese designer naoto fukasawa  is currently organising a series of workshops and exhibitions bearing the name ‘without thought’. the ‘BOX’ exhibition is the 10th of its kind.”

“without thought is a workshop directed by naoto fukasawa and participated in by in-house designers from DMN’s member companies. the process, in terms of time, begins with a winter camp before christmas; after seeing in the new year, meetings are held and the trial and error of ideas gets under way; finally, an exhibition showcasing the results is held; this time in the fall. something of a marathon, right? while following company routines and being up to their ears in important projects, designers participating in the workshop nevertheless put their heart and soul into it!”

Centre Pompidou, Paris

24.08.09 § Leave a comment

From my trip to Paris this July:

On the first day in Paris we went to the Centre Georges Pompidou which accommodates the leading collection of modern and contemporary art in Europe. It also holds  a large public reference library, performance spaces and cinemas as well as an institute for musical research and creation. The architecture of the place is quite interesting with most of the technical installations out in the open marked with different colors. It stands out though quite harshly in comparison to the surrounding historic architecture. In front of the building is a big square which is eagerly used by people sitting on the ground reading, talking, playing music and so on. From the upper floors you can observe the activity on the ground from a birds perspective. Here are some photos from the collection and the museum, and a few artworks by two of my favorite artists Mark Rothko and Gerhard Richter, that I got on post cards.

Quoted from designboom.com:

“The first UK solo show from vhils, aka alexandre farto, features a series of new works influenced by his native city of lisbon at a time of revolution. Entitled ‘scratching the surface’, the exhibition reflects on revolution as a time when walls turn into instruments of communication and hope for the masses, and the remnants of which become a decaying playground for this young artist as he searches for his place and identity. ”

Quoted from nytimes.com (The New York Times):

“The Bauhaus has now returned to Berlin in very different circumstances. Some 1,000 examples of the work of its students and teachers are exhibited in “Bauhaus: A Conceptual Model,” which opened last week in the Martin-Gropius-Bau exhibition hall as the biggest-ever Bauhaus retrospective.”

Urteriket by Vibeke Skar, The Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO).

“Urteriket is a new Norwegian brand that focuses on herbs. In former times herbs were regularly used, Urteriket is a modernization of an old tradition. The brand consists of a packaging with herbs and a tea strainer, and six separate and different glasses for herbs.”
