MARCH: Jollypop

jollypop0.jpg Here’s the latest from London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw as she explores London Design Week 2015!

Jollypop! These beautiful, natural lollipops by March have such lovely branding and packaging, and look deliciously designed. When flipping through Justine’s pictures, i stopped immediately at these and had to know more. Not only are they playful to look at - but their booth had them displayed on sound dampening pyramid foam!

Who is March? “MARCH is product invention studio based in Vilnius, Lithuania.We like new materials and technologies. We like good design. And we like good concept even better.” Martynas Kazimierenas and Egle Opeikiene definitely sound like our kind of people. I love that they go on to say “MARCH is anti-designerism. Most new designer products are unnecessary in our overproduced world. Besides, every new production have impact to the environment. New products have to be better in their concept, not just appearance. MARCH is new concept + new technology + new material = new goodness.” We need more designers who think like this.

Ok - but back to those Jollypops that we found at Tent London 2015… double sided cherry lollipop! And they are all handmade. see all their loveliness on the next page!

Knit Collection by Curver

knit0.jpg Here’s the latest from London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw as she explores London Design Week 2015!

Knitting has definitely been making a trendy comeback as of late… from knitting covered tree/street objects graffiti, to super chunky knit rugs, hipster knitting magazines and more… now you can even get chunky knit plastic - KNIT by Curver! A collection of useful products, from baskets and bags to pet homes, poufs, and more, which all utilize a method of deep-texture injection to apply a 3D knitted look to plastic. Their site explains that, “The innovation of the deep-texture injection method has been developed after the success of the rattan-look series, which upon its introduction five years ago, established the emotional plastic category by applying a woven look to outdoor furniture.”

Their unmissable designjunction installation in collaboration with FranklinTill spans the 5 story staircase as well as the press room, and is a colorful showcase of the KNIT by Curver collection. Take a look at the details on the next page!

swings.jpg

Currently for NOTlabs… i’m also researching SWINGS!!! I love swings - remember my skateboard swing from 2010? I suppose i shouldn’t be surprised how many i’ve accumulated and watched over the last 10 years on NOTCOT.org, but still - WOW! Swing inspiration overload? Nah… can’t get enough swings! From classic simple swings, to light up swings, to interactive (lights! music! and more…) swings… to crazy materials, locations, and shapes… my favorite 60 from NOTCOT.org are on the next page for us to refer to while brainstorming. I’m sure more will be found/added along the way as well… go check it out and feel free to jump in and share more ideas with us.

Research: Stacking/Totems

stack0.jpg

NOTCOT.com has always been a peek into my real life and what excites me at the moment. Lately the focus has been on NOTlabs (our real life studio side!) - and while we have fun experimenting, designing, testing, and making things… not all of it has been quite feature/making-of ready. Unable to shake my obsessive internet/real world search/shopaholic side - naturally every idea and project leads me down many a rabbit hole filled with research and inspiration as i think through things. So thus begins “RESEARCH” posts! Since i need a place to put them anyways, why not here? These may grow and get re-edited over time like my ever-evolving inspiration board - so feel free to suggest more links and objects and images that may help! We’re all in this together? And you’ll definitely be the first to see what the inspiration fuels us to design!

First up… i’m currently researching stacking vessels and totem pole type looks. Just curious what types of desktop size objects exist, or interesting details on ways things can fit together or be filled… so see what i’ve been finding via NOTCOT.org combined with more i’m hunting down on the next page.

Grids & Guides Notebook

grids1.jpg On fun things that recently arrived - the Grids & Guides Notebook in Red has been growing on me. While i’m still a blank, white paper kind of person… the variety of 8 grids are mesmerizingly fun, make for great backgrounds for pictures, and definitely make it hard not to doodle from point to point - even on the cloth cover! There are also dividing pages filled with information from conversion tables and knots, to time zones, perspectives, and beyond! See inside and more details on the next page.

Roland CNC Test : Andrew Bell Skull in Walnut

skull00.jpg

Machining is definitely an art form! As we get to further know the Roland MODELA Pro II MDX-540S that we unboxed a few months ago and made the Plant Experiment - Lego friendly walnut planters with… next step was to dive into the rotary attachment! Amazing artist (and our good friend!), Andrew Bell, kindly sent over the file for his amazing angry skull, which just called out to be milled in dramatic walnut! The design is also perfect for rotary milling!

First step was getting the rotary attachment set up - then testing it in foam - and on to walnut! While the end result is stunning, some of my favorites are the process stages… like how the rough pass starts to look like corrugated cardboard or how the finished piece looks with eye sockets full of sawdust! Take a peek at the whole process on the next page.
