The Complete Death Spray Custom Formula

DeathSprayCustom-TheNorthRace-Fork.jpgVia The North Race

I don’t know much about the enigmatic fellow behind Death Spray Custom besides the fact that his given name is David Gwyther and he’s based in London, and his morbid moniker is simply “an identity that is used to front my adventures in surface design. It is intended to be a playful riposte to an often serious world of art, design etc.” Per the same interview with CycleEXIF last year, he’s “mostly self taught,” and contrary to McLuhan, he believes that “the medium isn’t the message, the painting part is a small fraction of the process. I’d like to add I’m not a bicycle painter by any means, just an artist who likes two wheels.”

I’d known about his custom paint work for bicycles for some time, but true to his word, he comes up with wicked paint schemes for a variety of mostly speed-related objects—auto, helmets, tools, etc.—and executes them to dazzling effect. His portfolio is well worth a visit, from the Tool Box (featuring a slogan that is unprintable here) to a NASCAR-worthy Chevy Silverado and all variety of helmets and bicycle-related objets d’art.

Minimal Waste + Table by Fraaiheid

Minimal Waste + Table by Fraaiheid in home furnishings Category

New Dutch design brand Fraaiheid (Dutch for “beauty”) takes a single sheet of laminated plywood and turns it into a sustainably produced table with cross-shaped joints. Using a CNC milling machine, the + Table‘s parts are cut with precision out of one sheet, making for minimal waste.

The name of the table comes from the cross-shaped joints that are made when the parts come together.
