Designing 007: 50 Years of Bond Style

bond0.jpg The latest from London-based editor, Justine Aw.

Yesterday, I had a chance to preview the new exhibition Designing 007 - Fifty Years of Bond Style at the Barbican Centre celebrating the 50th anniversary of 007 (and the 30th of the Barbican!). Spanning from from 1962’s Dr No to this year’s Skyfall, the exhibition celebrates 007’s slick style and as curator Bronwyn Cosgrave said, it is one of the few times that Bond himself takes the back seat. It’s not about the man, but about the world behind 007, from complex sets, elaborate costumes, crafty villains and futuristic gadgetry that make up his world. The exhibition runs from July 6th - September 5th, so definitely one to check out if you’re in London, and as it’s set to travel after September, you might be lucky enough to catch it elsewhere! More photos of this incredible gadget-filled retrospective on the next page!

Plot Seed Wheel by Daniel Robson

seedwheel1.jpg The latest from London-based editor, Justine Aw as she checks out the press preview of New Designers 2012 Part 2, which is open to the public from July 4th - 7th.

Daniel Robson, who presented with Collective at New Designers 2012 Part 2. Robson’s ‘Seed Wheel’ is based on a subscription service that takes all the guesswork out of gardening. Specifically tailored to the customer’s location and season, each seed wheel is a customized, modular package of seeds with a minimum of non-recyclable waste. The seed wheel has perforated lines to allow for multiple planting. When ready to plant, the pod itself can be used as a dibber to push the seeds in, even eliminating the need for gardening tools! More photos of this clever project on the next page!

William Banfield’s Micro Make

newdesigners2012-3952.jpg The latest from London-based editor, Justine Aw as she checks out the press preview of New Designers 2012 Part 2, which is open to the public from July 4th - 7th.

William Banfield’s Micro-Make, a clever series of kits for schools, designed to engage young people in the way every day goods are produced. The first two of the series are the Micro-Make Vac Former and Rotational Moulder, which are compact, easily transportable kits that let children use vacuums to create their own molds and a rotational molder to create hollow forms! I got a brief demo of the kits in action and the kids who get to manufacture their own pieces are in for a treat! Take a look at more pictures on the next page!

Ross Penrose: Inside Nature’s Giants

skeletal1.jpg The latest from London-based editor, Justine Aw as she checks out the press preview of New Designers 2012 Part 2, which is open to the public from July 4th - 7th.

For his BA Graphic Design course at Plymouth College of Art, Ross Penrose created a line of merchandise inspired by Channel 4’s Inside Nature’s Giants series. Ross came up with the idea when watching the fascinating anatomical series (as we all do!). I love the detailing of his work. The beautiful scale models are pre-laser cut on sheets of plywood (with gorgeous detailing!) and all come together in a single pack including a hardcover book of information about the anatomy of the species you construct! More photos on the next page.

Another highlight from New Designers this year was the Wire Wonderland series from Hayley Dix. The beautiful wireframe birds look like charming, whimsical drawings perched on real branches! They are both abstracted and natural at the same time. More photos of the adorable woodland creatures on the next page!

Dwell On Design 2012: Randomness

dwellmain.jpg So much randomness and amusement on my camera from dwell that didn’t seem quite right for posts of their own… from robots following you around to oxen head wireframes… stargate like trellises to walk through to subtle cricket cut outs… piles of squish able big ass fan donkeys to huge bubble buildings… shot glasses made from cut mini grey goose bottles to awesome helmet designs… and so much more! See the Dwell On Design randomness on the next page!

Dom Pèrignon Neon Inspiration

neon1.jpg These big glowing neon Dom Pèrignon insignia’s throughout last night’s event for the David Lynch x Dom Pèrignon launch were mesmerizing. Enough so that i took a bunch of pictures of them, even ending up leaning up on the wall behind them feeling the bass from The Kills shaking the structure while sipping rosè and looking through them… fun pics on the next page!

2012 Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé

rolls1.jpg Strangely fascinated by the images and video of the 2012 Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé… you pop open the trunk and you’re greeted by the teak flooring you’d expect on your yacht… which then pops open further to reveal a “comfortable picnic seat for two adults” as well as a mini fridge and a set of “full-sized hand-engraved glasses that were designed by the team at Rolls-Royce.”

As for the inspiration behind the design… “The latest expression of Phantom Drophead Coupé demonstrates a more relaxed and less formal side of Phantom. It displays a sociable character and its convivial interior evokes the feeling of being aboard an elegant motor yacht. Inspired by the J-class racing yachts of 1930s (known for their performance and use of natural materials) the result is a car that epitomises romantic, performance motoring.”

“The optional teak deck was inspired by classic racing yachts. Each deck is hand-made from 30 separate pieces of teak cut from the same tree for consistent grain. Grooves are precision-machined into the wood then hand-finished with black yacht builders’ caulk. This is followed by two sealing coats and a finishing coat of liquid wax to create the elegant tonneau cover for the soft-top when it is lowered.”

See more pictures of these fascinating details on the next page… and imagine the picnic you could have when cruising around…

Darragh Casey’s Shelving the Body

shelvingthebody4.jpg The latest from London-based editor, Justine Aw at the Central Saint Martins 2012 Degree Shows.

Darragh Casey’s series Shelving the Body. Darragh’s dad used to put up a shelf every time was bored and this inspired the furniture design student to explore the relationship between people, shelves and the objects they are designed to hold. Rather than creating generalist shelves that support all nature of goods, he began experimenting and creating shelves which rely on people to use their own bodies and weigh to support or counterbalance objects or require users to carefully configure their objects on the shelves. Some shelves require the user to take a certain position and in his shelving the body project, shelves are designed to support human bodies themselves! I love the ‘shelf portrait’s that result and the excellent participation of Darragh’s family across the generations! See more pictures on the next page!

Visual ID for the CSM Graphic Design Grad Show

cstmartinssigns.jpg The latest from London-based editor, Justine Aw at the Central Saint Martins 2012 Degree Shows.

I loved the visual identity and branding for the BA Graphic Design Degree Show, which provided a strong sense of continuity throughout the show and translated beautifully across media, from signage at the show to the program and website. The visual identity was a project by three graduating students in the course, Duarte Carrilho da Graça, Esa Matinvesi, Shiho Yokoyama. More photos of their beautiful work on the next page!
