Housework in Heels






To celebrate the launch of the world's largest shoe gallery at Selfridges, creative duo Lernert & Sander have created a set of sculptural installations of household domestic appliance inspired shoe designs. A dishwasher is transformed into a pair of Chanel clogs, two slick black irons into Stella stilettos and a sewing machine into YSL skyscrapers.

"We wanted to turn stock items into startlingly smart footwear. A humorous take on fashion as an ideal escape from the daily grind." See the full display here.

Who would ever complain about household chores if the dress code was strictly designer shoes only!

Making Future Magic - iPad

Making Future Magic: iPad light painting from Dentsu London on Vimeo.

Created for Making Future Magic, BERG together with Dentsu London have come up with this quite wonderful movie combining iPad and light painting. The team first created software models in Cinema4D. These were then rendered as cross sections, like a virtual CAT scan, making a series of outlines of slices of each form. These are then played back on the surface of the iPad as movies together with dragged iPad through the air to extrude shapes captured in long exposure photographs. Each 3D form is itself a single frame of a 3D animation, so each long exposure still is only a single image in a composite stop frame animation. See more here.

This year I will try not to


THIS YEAR I WILL TRY NOT TO was born out of frustration, complacency and laziness. Most designers are seduced by design trends. They’re easy to appropriate, and even easier to imitate. The challenge is to innovate. To be new. We decided the best (and most enjoyable) approach was to identify and document the most common trends we felt we had to avoid. Before long we found ourselves with a checklist of DON’Ts and a new aim:
to try to be new. We may fail, but we will try. See more here.

TAT - Future of screen technology


Capacitive screens has now become a commodity for touch screen devices. Screen technology is now taking the next leap and the coming years imagination is the only thing stopping us. We will soon have dual screens, malleable screens, screens built into wifi connected mirrors, desks or backside of gadgets clothed with e-ink screens, tactile feedback, color screens with great contrast in sunlight, holographics/stereoscopic screens, color e-ink touch screens, or screens actually knowing where they are in relation to other screens thanks to ultrasonic emitters and microphones.

TAT want to show some of these things in an "experience video", that shows a normal day in a couple of years when all these technologies are affordable enough to be used everywhere. See more about TAT here.

Jen Stark’s work is very distinctive in her bold use of color and materials. Her drawings are a combination of bright colors and abstract forms that results into organic morphs.
