This is the best non-refrigerating ice cream maker anywhere. The simple design works for the brand and looks perfect in any kitchen. Simple is the key for them and always has been. They need to carry that philosophy back to their tools and gadgets group. Note to all the design cliche lovers, the form certainly does not follow the function.
According to a very reliable source (John) the new marvel movie about one of their more boring characters is worth seeing. He is a tough critique but surprisingly he said the effects and story were equally good. I think that they should have spent more time on the line of toys. The shield dart launcher is especially awful.
A classic in teak. Also looks great in walnut but I am not really into the oak version. Only problem is that they are not all that comfortable for laying down on and they are most comfortable in only a couple of positions. Maybe that is why the great look had little staying power.
The arch really is impressive. More than I thought it would be based on pictures. Although I did not go on the tour the elegance of the shape contrasted against the rectangular buildings is bold, light and surprising. Designed by Finnish American architect Eero Saarinen and structural engineer Hannskarl Bandel in 1947. Funding and ideation for the land and project started in the 30's but construction was not completed until the 60's. One of the most expensive elements was re-routing the railroad.
But Dyson will not be out done when it comes to over designed and oddly positioned. Although I supposed to some extend the aesthetic position has worked since people think that Dyson vacuums are superior even though consumer reports has proven otherwise. Too bad they abandoned their color strategy on this SKU.
Some of what Dyson does is easy to admire, like their monochromatic but still saturated approach to color and their careful use of textures and gloss. However the robotic, outer-space aesthetic that they helped bring to dominance in the category is as overworked and dated as it is pervasive. This example shows an imitator whose detail and form language completely lacks harmony and fails to communicate any desirable traits about the products performance.
Conceptual cast cookware line by Simen Aarseth, Christoffer Angell and Øyvind Wyller. Their company is called Angell Wyller Aarseth (I think). According to their website, "they are three product designers who have collaborated on several projects after they completed their master's degree in design at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in Norway summer 2010." Handle me is their name for the line.
I read on line that Brad Pitt is remaking Bullitt. Seems like a mistake but not because the acting in the original was so good, more because the thing that made the original enjoyable to me is the slowness of the story. I'm not sure that could still be done and I am not sure it would work at a faster pace.
