Muji’s Product fitness 80 at the Design Museum

mujimain.jpg The latest from our resident zoologist and London-based editor, Justine Aw, who super awesomely went to check out this Muji event on her birthday! (Happy Birthday, Justine!)

Product Fitness 80 asks the questions “What would happen if we used 20% less materials and energy to make products?”. The clever exhibition pushes Muji craftsmen to develop products that use fewer materials and processing. You can catch the exhibition at London’s Design Museum from tomorrow, the 9th of March until next Sunday, March 18th. In the meantime, see more more photos on the next page!

Inside Barnacle Bros.

mainbarnacle.jpg The latest from our NOTlabs head maker/fabricator/hacker, Shawn Sims, as he adventures through LA visiting some amazing fabrication shops/people!

Barnacle Bros. is an East LA sculpture and custom fabrication shop that has been serving the arts and entertainment industries since 1997. “Barnacle Bros is an artist studio founded in 1997 by a friendly group of artists, craftspeople, performers, and local personalities. The folks at Barnacle Bros. are well versed in all media and processes. We specialize in wood, metal, fiberglass, composites, foam, resin, bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, stone, sculpting, casting, mold-making, models, miniatures, furniture, architectural elements, prototypes, and, of course, puppets.” Smilee and Karl specialize in the crazy, weird, and hard to build, and gave me a wondrous tour through their shop. Stepping into their space you will find yourself surrounded by remnants of Hollywood sets, clowns, knives in rocks, and 20 foot tall faces. It’s nothing short of awesome to wander through this workshop and get to see how it’s all made. The company gets its name from one of it’s first jobs where they molded and casted bronze barnacles form a pier on Venice Beach, and has since pulled off many more crazy projects for artists and festivals all over the world. Take a peek at more pics on the next page!

The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt

bigeggs.jpg The latest from our resident zoologist and London-based editor, Justine Aw.

London has become home to over 200 eggs as part of The Big Egg Hunt presented by Fabergé. The eggs created by leading artists, designers, architects and jewellers scattered throughout London in 12 “zones”. The record-breaking egg hunt raises funds and awareness for the charities Action for Children and Elephant Family, through souvenirs (see more on the next page!) as well as auctions of the eggs themselves. Egg hunters can text the code associated with the egg they’ve found for a change to win The Diamond Jubilee Egg. Great way to raise awareness and a wonderful excuse to get out and explore the city!

In addition to the many beautiful eggs, we also love the identity and branding work for created by our friends at Fallon (remember the white rabbit Syfy campaign and sony playdoh bunnies?). Check out more photos of the lovely identity work and of the hunt including our own finds, the Big Egg Shop at Selfridges and some of our yet-to-be-spotted favorites on the next page!

Valentine’s Day at W+K NYC

wkny0.jpg Happy Valentine’s Day! For some VDay inspiration, we popped in to Wieden + Kennedy NY to see the creativity and inspiration behind the ads we all love. So much creative energy and playfulness throughout the office! I love the staircase in the Wieden + Kennedy NY office! (So naturally the adorable animal caricatures of everyone in the office a few years back became the main picture!) It’s fun to get a peek behind the scenes of everything from Sportscenter ad spots in the making to crazy tech being schemed… giant Nike shoes looking for decorations… post it note maps of the US… color sorted bookshelves… and an amazing 3 floors of a huge Tribecca building… only two of which are filled with people and the third is used for everything from photoshoots to castings to artist experiments and shopping pop ups! There’s even a “red vein” flowing through each floor sometimes taking the form of couches, other times filing cabinets and meeting spots… and then there’s the adorably sweet Valentine’s present they gifted us too! Take a peek inside the world of W+K NY on the next page!

CW&T Pen Type A

pen0.jpg Just visited with CW&T (Che-Wei Wang and Taylor Levy) who amongst many awesome projects are responsible for one of the most funded Kickstarter design projectsPen Type-A. Looking to raise $2,500, they ended up with over $280,000… and 4000+ backers (including us!)… and from making a smaller batch of pens, they were suddenly faced with the daunting task of making a few thousand! Beyond the beautiful design and craftsmanship of this solid steel housing for the plastic Hi-Tec-C pen cartridges… it has been incredible to follow the hardships and exciting moments over the last 6 months since they got funded, and even more exciting to finally get our hands on the actual pen! (Spoiler: it feels incredible!) So take a peek at the details and unboxing of one from the first batches of CW&T Pen Type-A on the next page!

p.s. If you find yourself with one in person, you must pull the pen from casing quickly. It’s a great sound.
