Inspired by the 1982 Sci-Fi classic Blade Runner, the cage-like drive surrounds what appears to be a blob of liquid metal. The radiator design keeps the heat to a minimum which results in better performance.

Sadly, they’re only making 9,999 of them, and there is no date as to when they will go on sale, but I must get my hands on one.

AL13 iPhone Bumper Case: Ultra-Thin for the Win

Designedbym-site.jpg

I must admit that the startup Designed by m mostly struck me for its cheeky take on Apple’s brand identity, appropriating the design cues (including the font Myriad Pro) with a wink and a nod for their website and, to a lesser extent, Kickstarter campaign. In any case, the AL13 aluminum iPhone bumper is a go, handily doubling its $20,000 goal in a week, and it doesn’t take an aerospace engineer to see why: it’s sleek, lightweight, easy to install and, above all, thinner than its competitors in the bumper category.

Of course, if the AL13 isn’t minimal enough for you, we covered a couple of ultraminimal cases about a month ago. Although Alex Karp didn’t reach his funding goal via Kickstarter, the campaign apparently received enough publicity to attract outside investors, who have offered to bankroll Bummpies. mod-3, on the other hand, has surpassed their goal for the Radius case by over 50% as of press time, with five days to go.

A Nod to Graphic Design: Line Furniture by Shinn Asano

A Nod to Graphic Design: Line Furniture by Shinn Asano in home furnishings Category

With a background in graphic design, Japanese designer Shinn Asano launched a six-piece collection of furniture called Sen, which is Japanese for ‘line’. Asano takes two-dimensional lines and works them into these three-dimensional, graphically inspired forms.

Amihajime Table – Inspired by Japanese bamboo basket making and it fits a plant or vase in the center

The red steel series was inspired by “Japanese shapes, traditional crafts, or feelings.” Taking notes from his graphic design past, careful attention is paid to the negative space just as much as the lines that make up each form.

I love the shadows created when light hits the pieces.

Student Work – Toni Hall

Designed by Toni Hall | Country: United States

“Neverclear is a classier, less clear version of Everclear. Neverclear is a grain alcohol which has a very strong alcohol content. I made this package to reflect the effects of alcohol after having a few glasses while still staying classy with clean typography. The bottle is a diamond shape, and when you turn the bottle back and forth the optical illusion changes as you see it through the glass. These optical illusions will only become more interesting as the party goes on.”
