Massimo Vignelli “Design Is One”

via anthonyneildart

The investigative design process moves from the inside out: “The correct shape is the shape of the object’s meaning.” The Vignelli commitment to the correctness of a design has taken their work beyond the mechanical exercise of devising a form best suited to a given function. They’ve always understood that design itself, in the abstract, could and should be an integral part of function. More than a process and a result, design—good design—is an imperative. “Everything has its own order,” they’ve said. “You can’t take a piece of music and scramble the notes. You can’t take a piece of writing and scramble the words. You can’t take a space and scramble the chairs around.”

Beautiful thoughts by Massimo Vignelli

reaDIYmates

reaDIYmates are fun wi-fi objects that you can build easily. They move and play sounds depending on what’s happening in your digital life.

“You can choose from a variety of existing designs or create your own object. Then decide what you want them to do through a simple web interface. Link them to your digital life (Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, RSS feeds, SoundCloud, If This Then That!) or control them remotely in real time from your iPhone.”

Very interesting!

 

Goldfish Salvation

Wow this is just super awesome work, these three-dimensional goldfish are painted by Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori.

“When struggling with artistic vision, Fukahori’s pet goldfish became his inspiration and ever since his passion and lifelong theme. His unique style of painting uses acrylic on clear resin which is poured into containers, resulting in a three-dimensional appearance and lifelike vitality.”

Watch the video to see a glimpse of his amazing painting process. Stunning and incredible work!

Curiosity And Creativity, Can Toys Bring It Back to Life?

The new generation of companies are finding ways to encourages curiosity and creativity in kids through toys. Bringing them back to life.

littleBits is a growing library of pre-assembled circuit boards that snap together with tiny magnets! Just as Legos allow you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge, littleBits are simple, intuitive, space-sensitive blocks that make prototyping with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together.

Say Hello to Little Printer :)


I wrote about Berg’s ideas earlier too and their ideas, innovation always give smiles on my face. Something different but connected to physical stuff. So here is another super cool idea they called as “Little Printer” crafted it beautifully. :)

“Little Printer lives in your home, bringing you news, puzzles and gossip from friends. Use your smartphone to set up subscriptions and Little Printer will gather them together to create a timely, beautiful mini-newspaper.”

You can say its little newspaper which can fit any where plus paper is like a screen that never turns off. You can stick to the fridge or tuck it in your wallet. You can scribble on it or tear it and give it to a friend.
