Michel Gondry for Motorola

Not sure about you, but when I saw that Motorola commercial for their new razor weeks ago I found it rather fromage-filled. So it was interesting to find out the commercial I'd watched was actually produced for the Asian market. It was subbed in here because Motorala is in some disputes with Cutwater who hired Michel Gondry to film the American spot. Turns out they thought it was too artistic. Typical. But what'd you expect hiring Gondry, right?

You can watch the Gondry for Motorola commercial, which hasn't aired, below. As expected, it is very pretty.

Here's the one being aired, a la fromage:


That's Amorre...

'When the moon hits your eye' could be virtually any time now, indoors or out.

A group of Russian designers have designed "Your Personal Moon"; a crescent shaped light box / lamp.

Oh how romantic.

Not the least bit 'sketchy'

Front designers' sketch furniture process makes you want to go back to the drawing board

Some time ago I featured the work of Swedish Design studio Front. Well, today I was blown away by their latest venture into "sketch furniture".

Qu'est que c'est you ask?

"The four FRONT members have developed a method to materialise free hand sketches. They make it possible by using a unique method where two advanced techniques are combined.
Pen strokes made in the air are recorded with Motion Capture and become 3D digital files; these are then materialised through Rapid Prototyping into real pieces of furniture."

holy shit right? watch this video and become a believer.

Who knows what this will mean for DIY culture and customizable furniture, but at the very least you can look forward to purchasing some hand drawn furniture.
