Design museum

Some interesting stuff around the Museum of Industrial Design, London.

Barcodes


D-barcode specialises in turning barcode into something fun and memorable. Barcodes grace almost every product for sale. Given how much package real estate they command, why shouldn't they look cool?

duality in use


These days i'm able to see a lot of old designs made for regular use in our homes. Say 100 years before, more or less. And with each of them , my observations strengthens that none of the product, be in a utensil or a dress was made for one sole purpose. Every one had dual purpose to serve or an hidden agenda. For now i cannot upload those pics, but i think in present times one of the best places to see such work is either VISHALA, ahmedabad or CITY PALACE MUSEUM, Jaipur. But heres just a pinch of that funda put to practice.

Pet name

Baby, dinky, jiji, jojo, baba, munnu, chunnu. you must have been called by such names from child hood. But if you had to give yourself a PET name now, what would it be? what kind? and why would you choose it so?

koolhaus's 17 sides, stefan being cool on that






Built in 2005 by Rem Koolhaas’ OMA in the city of Porto, Portugal the Casa da Música is, without a doubt, a significant architectural statement — further emphasised by its intense angles and towering presence. By using the building as a visual source, Stefan Sagmeister created a dynamic, faceted and endlessly varied identity — all literally speaking.

why stones?


World Beach Project was conceived as a global drawing project; a stone drawing project that would speak about time, place, geology and the base instinct of touch. Drawings made on shorelines all over the world, which although erased by the next tide or rains, would be collected within the V&A to become a permanent record of the individual human desire to make pattern.

To pick up a rock, is to touch base. Touching stones gives us a primal, spiritual connection with the earth. When we handle a stone, wProxy-Connection: keep-alive
Cache-Control: max-age=0

hold in our hands a small drawing, a tiny piece of the map; we are holding time.

That’s why.

Gaudi stool




The shape of the Gaudi Stool was created in the same way Proxy-Connection: keep-alive
Cache-Control: max-age=0

at Antoní Gaudi designed the structure of his churches, by making a model of hanging chains, so letting gravity determine the strongest and most logical shape for withstanding forces.

The Gaudi-stool was part of the furnistructure project. In the Furnistructures project was researched how lightweight products can be designed. This is design by studio greene

Materials & techniques:

A thin shell made of carbon fiber deals with the compressive forces. A beam-grid substructure resists bending of the shell. The substructure was made using rapid-prototyping techniques, in order to achieve the needed complexity. The rapid-prototyped structure was then used as a mold for the carbon-fiber laminates. This combining of these two high-tech techniques decreased costs of both of them, and made them applicable in a product.

Gaudi-stool:
carbon-composite, polyamide. 1kg.

The project includes a series of designs for furniture.

Of these unrealized designs, the Gaudi-chair is currently being developed in cooperation with Dutch research institute TNO

Secret out


what do you get to let out a secret behind some technique, some way of doing things.
Very optimistically saying, you let out a possibility of improvement and better way of doing things.

TED, behind the scene


No doubt TED has been one of the inspiring phenomena's of  transferring knowledge to people in 18 min. way. It is short time, but thats the challenge if it can leave the impact. Its like older times when philosophers, scientist, or creators put their idea to people in public spaces in public auditoriums, Band stands and conversed to public. Captured their mind for those short minutes, to leave an impression, to make them sync and think and flow in their way of thought. Later left them to decide what's right, wrong and what should be taken further by them.

Kajrari aankhein

(origin of inspiration via siddharth's blog...a looooong time ago)
badi badi kajrari aankhein, masoom jaise bachpan bhara hai.
har pal uski aankhein aise bhav dekhati hai, jaise zameen pe woh pehli bar aayee hai.
har cheez ko dekh usee utsah hota, uski aankhein hi baat kar jati.

badi badi kajrari aankhein kuch na kar ke bhi, dil le jati, aanhein de jati.
gali ke nukad pe chai ke thele pe, roz baithe sochta,
aaj kon sa jalwa dekhayenge yeh aankhein.
soch kam pad jati, uske aankhon ka kajal nahi.

not too god, but not a bad try i guess

via my tutor friends

sometimes people say success is briefer than a girl's beauty.

this is for my school days


School days were so much uncomplicated, that anything compared to it looks like a great job well done uuuffffff!!!!!!!
And when i remember those days, there are so many memories, but one is very specific. A dedication to Pooja(one of my best friends). who made me know these verses meant more than just dialogues in the movie. 
Going to an only girl school, had different experiences. Imagining future and doing stuff like writing such lyrics in your personal diary were so much common among girls. Now that i came across these verses, i felt like posting it. As these things were so much part our lives. And reciting these verses, with all passion.
And when you remembered the whole thing, there was the shout of accomplishment.(like you see in teenage hollywood movies) yeeeeaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!
Now everything looks funny and foolish seeing it from present. But those were the days of "Aisa pehli bar hua hai satrah, athrah saloon main!!!!!!!!!"


"Aisa pehli baar hua hai satrah athrah saalon mein
Undekha anjaana koyi, aane laga khayalon mein
Aankhon ki khidki par ek sayaa sa lehrata hai
Dil ke darwaze par koyi dastak de ke jaata hai
Gehri, gehri kaali aankhen, mujhse mujhko puchhti hain
Haathon ki rekhaaon mein ek chehra sa ban jaata hai
Uski saansen resham jaisi gaalon ko chhu jaati hain
Uske haathon ki khushboo hai ab tak mere baalon mein
Aisa pehli baar hua hai satrah athrah saalon mein
Undekha anjaana koyi aane laga khayalon mein."

Blinds


Light seeps in through the small cut out holes creating an image of a city by night. The cut-outs represent the light in the windows of apartment buildings and office complexes in the city. The images represent a selection of cities that Elina has traveled to in the last few years and the photographs are by her. The chosen views are of contrasting cityscapes: skyscrapers in Tokyo, 60s modernism in Helsinki and 19th century architecture in Paris. The new Better View Blind with a Berlin View will be launched in October at the Galeries Lafayette in Berlin. Elina Aalto is a young designer living and working in Helsinki. In 2006, Elina's giant outdoor oriental carpet in Arabianranta, Helsinki was awarded the prize of the Best Environmental Art Work of the Year. Elina is also one of the three founding members of IMU, Finland's self-appointed National Design Team representing young Finnish and Helsinki-based designers.
