Max Neutra’s Bunnies

bunny0.jpg Wandering down Abbot Kinney, i was stopped in my tracks by Max Neutra’s bunny mural! Naturally this lead to an instagram pic ~ and then an internet search when i got home… leading me to his website and facebook page… which lead to more pictures of the making of the mural as well as his solo show earlier this year at the Cave Gallery with bunnies galore… and even stand alone wooden bunnies that have been captured posing all over the world! Take a peek at Max Neutra’s incredible bunnies and more on the next page!

Anachroquarianism by Kristjana S Williams

animalmap.jpgThe latest from London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw as we begin our coverage of London Design Festival 2012.

To kick off London Design Festival 2012 we caught up with the talented natural history inspired illustrator Kristjana S Williams, whom we featured earlier for her work with Zubrowka. Her latest exhibition, Anachroquarianism, is housed in the gorgeous Shapero Rare Books, a gem of a store specializing in antiquarian prints, rare books and other treasures located on Saint George Street just off Hanover Square. We loved the bookshop setting and the way Williams’ beautiful illustrations worked with the backdrop of antiquarian collectibles and natural history prints and illustrations from the 19th century.

The exhibition opened to the public on September 14th and will run until the 22nd as a part of the London Design Festival 2012 and Williams’ limited editions prints will be available both at the exhibition and online from Outline Editions. See more photos of the press preview and some of our favorite pieces next page!

Inspiration: Venice Architecture Biennale

bien0.jpg There was SO much to see at the Venice Biennale ~ as usual, so much running around and so many details to take in… so beyond the features we’ve shared with you thus far (wire bending robots, Israeli Aircraft Carrier Shop, architectural model projection mapping, Russian QR code madness, amazing, colorful model in the Hong Kong space, Kipnis’ Field Of Dreams, the recycled wine bottle roof, and the incredible hydroponic floating plant system!) there have been tons of pictures left… so on the next page you can see a burst of the random inspiration encountered while exploring it all!

Israeli Pavilion Aircraft Carrier Shop

istext0.jpg The Israeli Pavilion of the Venice Architecture Biennale was turned into a fully functioning capitalist “concept shop” filled with cheeky goods you can actually purchase. As they state in the catalog “In this exhibition, one enters a concept store, selling custom-made objects that relate to specific events in the relationship between the United States and Israel. The store embodies a retail experience that is in itself a product of American influences, prompting the public to participate in a live installation. Upon ascending to the upper level, one finds that the store’s objects become a field of historical, cultural, and economic background events in which four architectural phenomena are immersed.” You can find out more about their project through their twitter and tumblr. The products themselves are amusingly designed, packaged and presented in the store and upstairs presentation ~ take a peek at the products, displays and catalog on the next page.

Cloud 9: Architectural Projection Mapping

pod1.jpg Another Venice Architecture Biennale inspiration i’m surprised we didn’t see more of ~ projection mapping on architectural models! It really brings them to life as you see cars driving on the roads to shadows cast by the buildings moving as the daylight comes and goes… we spotted this one in the Spain Lab’s Cloud 9 project room. See the video and more pictures on the next page to see how effective it was!

I-City Russian QR Code Madness

russiacode5.jpg More Venice Architecture Biennale fun ~ I-City at the Russian Pavilion is a multi-room QR code experience. The exhibit was designed by SPEECH and Valode & Pistre and curated by Sergei Tchoban. The floors, walls, and ceilings are covered in QR codes providing a mesmerizing effect. Upon entering you are handed a Samsung tablet, and told to point and shoot at the illuminated QR codes. When you click the photo of one you are presented with work from David Chipperfield, SANAA, OMA, Herzog & de Meuron, Stefano Boeri, SPEECH, and Mohsen Mostafavi among others. In all honesty, it was as fun to wander around the rooms and watch people trying to watch the QR code content as it was to view the content itself. The walls and ceilings were backlit matte black powder coated metal QR codes, and the floors were etched reflective metal panels. It was a completely trip to experience… see lots of fun pics on the next page!
