Color Flow è una piccola collezione di arredamenti futuristici che cambiano colore in base alla posizione e al movimento di chi osserva, grazie all’uso di una tecnologia olografica che crea superfici con gradiente.
Creata dallo studio coreano Orijeen, la collezione è composta da due piccoli armadi: quello più grande è rifinito con gradienti blu e verdi, mentre quello più piccolo passa dal blu al rosa. Secondo i designer, i cambiamenti di colore creano una relazione più intima fra persone e oggetti.
As part of the 2012 RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in London, landscape and design consultancy The Edible Bus Stop conceived of a green space that incorporated gardens, artwork, and the conversion of a street into public space. The temporary exhibition titled Riot of Color was conceived as “a post apocalyptic interpretation of the after effects of the 2011 London riots.” One of the more novel aspects was this fun park bench designed as yellow street lines that rise from pavement to wrap around a tree.

Using digital files pulled from NASA’s archives, French design studio Harow designed a table that replicates the real topology of the moon’s surface. The Apollo 11 Table features a sculpted fiberglass slab in the form of a lunar crater. Covering this thick segment is a layer of resin, which allows one to fully view its dips and crevices while providing coverage to the uneven terrain. The brass and aluminum alloy feet also pay homage to the many Apollo missions, parts that put a modern spin on the Lunar Excursion Module‘s original landing pads.

The French lighting and furniture design firm DCW editions just released this novel minimalist lighting concept called the ISP Lamp that contains an LED light mechanism inside a narrow brass capsule inspired by the design of an airplane fuselage. By opening the end and pulling out the cylindrical light, it appears is if you’re pulling out a physical “tube” of light itself, not just a bulb. You can see a few more photos and videos on their website and on Facebook. (via Design Milk)

Inspired by his daily experience of life in the Pacific Midwest, artist and designer Greg Klassen (previously) fabricates one-of-a-kind tables featuring blue glass rivers, lakes, and waterfalls. The topographical studies mimic bodies of water seen from an aerial view, but the twisting blue pathways are often defined by the wood pieces he selects. While the majority of Klassen’s work serves as functional art, he’s also begun to create more isolated wood and glass sculptures mounted on walls.
