Skim Milk: Color Case for iPhone 5 by 11+

Skim Milk: Color Case for iPhone 5 by 11+ in technology style fashion Category

Color Case for iPhone 5 is a minimal design created by Cloud&Co for Korean company 11+. The focus of 11+ is to provide beautifully designed, high-quality products for the masses. Too often are good designs forgotten because of their unreasonably high costs or impossible attainability. In addition, 11+ donates a percentage of its proceeds to UNICEF ’s Gift of Water Campaign, which provides water-related aid to those in need.

Color Case is a prime example of 11+’s competencies for modern design. Sleek, functional, and minimal, Color Case uses a carefully selected palette of Pantone colors to protect the newest iPhone. The case is produced in polycarbonate, and although simple in appearance, the details that compose this articulately designed case are abundant. The Color Case features protective side buttons and a scratch resistant surface that is waterproof as well. Even the inside cover of the case has been carefully examined – it includes the alphanumeric color code of the Pantone color used on the casing.

There are an inordinate amount of phone cases and accessories to choose from for the iPhone 5. It takes a lot for a design to catch my eye in such a saturated market, but this case is unique in its color selection and quality. The colors include true blue, sea blue, candy pink, pale mint, forest green and pure white.

Repair is Beautiful by Paulo Goldstein

Repair is Beautiful by Paulo Goldstein in technology home furnishings art Category

Brazilian, London-based designer, artist and all-around maker Paulo Goldstein has lended his model-making talents to such films as The Fantastic Mr. Fox and Frankenweenie, but after receiving a Master’s Degree in Industrial Design from Central Saint Martins in London, it appears he is opening a whole new chapter. His graduate project, called ”Repair is Beautiful” focuses on repairing broken objects from a craftsperson’s eye.

Repaired Anglepoise

Repair is Beautiful by Paulo Goldstein in technology home furnishings art Category

He explains that this idea arose from solving every day frustrations, like encountering a broken object, and figuring out a way to repair it on our own.

A broken object delivers frustration because it doesn’t achieve its functionality, but the same principle applies to a broken system that caused the financial crisis, which has affected our lives since 2008. In a time of uncertainty, taking things into our own hands and having the feeling of control back can be very therapeutic. “Repair is Beautiful” aims to give back this feeling of control – by scaling down a major society problem to a human size and projecting frustration upon broken objects that can be repaired through design and craftsmanship. The final outcome is a collection of intriguingly repaired objects imbued with new meaning and functionality. The once rejected objects reflect the environment that created them and call us to question our society as a whole.

It’s pretty steampunkish.

Creative Office Design Ideas from Interior Designer Anna Butele

Creative Office Design Ideas from Interior Designer Anna Butele in interior design Category

Latvian interior and product designer Anna Butele created a very creative office space for her interior design office in Riga, Latvia.

Creative Office Design Ideas from Interior Designer Anna Butele in interior design Category

While the space seems sparse at times, the design is in the details, as Charles Eames would say.

The design was built on the basis of color’s effect on a human feelings. The bright colors in combination with pops of fluorescent throughout, give it tons of energy to help keep employees in a positive mood.

Creative Office Design Ideas from Interior Designer Anna Butele in interior design Category

The painting called “Daudz laimes” depicts the designer herself, and was given to her by her brother, a popular singer in Latvia named Gustavo, as a surprise birthday present. The artwork was executed together by Anna’s friends: Christina Luize Avotina, Evita Kirsone, and Laura Ozola. A fun tidbit – Gustavo also wrote a special song to Anna, which was also called “Daudz laimes,” which you can hear here. So sweet!

The sofa is an inflatable design from Blofield. I love the mix of modern furnishings in this traditional space. I feel like the Blofield sofa is a nice representation of the entire space.

The storage shelf was designed by Anna. I like how the chair’s wood matches the molding’s neon detail. Just in case the chair gets moved, you’ll always know which room it belongs to!

In tiny corners on the office walls, inconspicuous concise phrases are almost hidden. They serve to motivate, inspire and remind.

Have you seen the unusual temporary carpets we’ve featured before that the team of We Make Carpets create? They are modern day versions of traditional woven carpets of centuries past made out of everyday items like pasta, cotton balls, plastic forks, candy bars, and now sponges and old plastic bottles. The three-dimensional patterns look labor-intensive, much like the carpets they are meant to reflect.
