Complexus

Designed by Miguelfreitasdesign | Country: Portugal

“The main concept for the brand and label design is the idea of complexes and a new approach to a wine label design. In Portugal wine labels are usually traditional and so we wanted to break that idea by using an image of forgotten things, like postcards or old images, but with a strong feeling of complexes. You don’t have to hide behind a mask because you don’t know anything about wine, it’s easier to say you just like to drink it. Forgot all your complexes and just have fun.”

Photographer Adam Voorhes Explodes Things

Well, not really. Not with gunpowder or anything. But Adam Voorhes is quite internationally famous for his many shots of items that are deconstructed — -guns, Etch-a-Sketches, helmets and more — and shot in such a way that you get a view of an object like you’ve never seen before. An intimate, almost uncomfortable way of looking at an object, his exploded photographs have shown up in tons of important commercial work.

And that’s like, only one of the things he does. He’s so talented we honestly think we’ve never posted about him before because we’re so overwhelmed by the amazingness and huge amount of his work. So instead of overwhelming you today, we’re gonna post a quick video he made of just how he creates these amazing shots. Or at least how he exploded a Kawasaki bike.

Outòcton

Designed by Senyor Estudi | Country: Spain

“During the Mancommunity period in the early 20th century, the Empordà was a point of reference in Catalan poultry farming, and many shows and competitions were held here. The Empordanese Aperdiuada hen –a minority breed that lays peculiar dark, speckled eggs– almost became extinct during the Civil War. Fortunately, some specimens survived on a farm in Castelló d’Empúries, which led to the recovery of this special breed.”

Devil’s Peak Brewing Company

Designed by Just Design | Country: South Africa

“Born as a response to the one-dimensional beer culture in South Africa, The Devil’s Peak Brewing Company (DPBC) produces brews unlike any other beer you’re likely to find locally. The designs reflect the intricacy of the different beer styles and the brewer’s passion to create beers with unique character and depth. Craftsmanship, idiosyncratic style and the underlying belief of ‘truth to material’ – where the insides inform the outside – equals 4 distinctive styles with 4 equally standout designs. Recently released, the designs are already winning public attention at beer appreciation festivals and on Facebook and twitter.”

Pixel Vases Landscape by Julian F. Bond

Pixel Vases Landscape by Julian F. Bond

By mixing the handmade with industrial, designer Julian F. Bond created a series of vases and lighting for an exhibition entitled Pixel Vases Landscape. The vases are made the traditional slip casting way but Bond steps in to manipulate each piece making each an individual design and not part of a mass production. Each vase is made via the Pixel Casting Machine that molds the piece when you manually adjust hundreds of 1-2 cm plaster sticks.

The objects have an architectural quality about them and appear at first glance to be made from sugar cubes.

Méo Shelf by Olivier Desrochers

Méo Shelf by Olivier Desrochers

Montreal-based designer Olivier Desrochers created the Méo Shelf, a shelving system that resembles scaffolding. The modular system uses solid oak planks that are connected together with brightly colored steel supports that sit at an angle. Between the angle of the brackets and the color (you get to choose!), the simple piece has loads of visual interest and would look good just about anywhere.

Oliver Hrubiak Design

Oliver Hrubiak Design

Oliver Hrubiak is a young Nottingham-based product and furniture designer who is building quite an impressive portfolio. His pieces Finn and Frank combine wood and metal beautifully but in different ways.

Finn
A chair that is both functional and classic in design, Finn features a shelf underneath to hold magazines or a blanket. Hrubiak took inspiration from how Scandinavian furniture is built with functionality in mind, and this chair most definitely reflects that.

Frank
With an overall industrial feel, the table lamp sports an adjustable tripod base in light blue with a twisted red cord. The polished metal shade focuses light wherever you need it and would look good on a desk or nightstand.

Eco-amp by eco-made

Eco amp by eco made

You know how sometimes it’s hard to hear music playing from your iPhone’s speaker? Well, eco-made created eco-amp, which is an environmentally friendly iPhone speaker amplifier made from FSC Certified 100% Post Consumer and Alternative Fiber paper.

Eco amp by eco made

The design is based on the same principles as the old gramophone – a single source of sound being amplified by a horn. The cool thing about it is that it’s made as a flat design, which means that it takes up no room when you take it with you and it’s easily assembled on the go. Best of all is that it only costs $7.99 for two.
