the fun of the fair

Whether it’s a trade fair, a festival or a brand celebration, today’s events go all out to provide visitors with an extraordinary experience. Preferably one that you’ll remember days or weeks later – one that makes an unforgettable impact – because fairs, biennials and design weeks are facing cut-throat competition. From Vancouver to Tokyo, from Cape Town to Stockholm, hip design events are a global phenomenon. And they’re all part of a mad scramble to seize the few crumbs of time that creative-industry professionals allot to such functions. What’s more: established events are forced to compete with newbies in the same city. Take the Salone del Mobile in Milan: many creatives simply skip the mother of all design fairs nowadays and spend all their time visiting the proliferation of mainly commercial…


Together, Pascal and Maria Schöning are Das Studio, a Cologne-based ‘open network’ working internationally in the areas of design, photography and creative direction. Pascal has worked as a creative director for 15 years, while Maria focuses on illustration, visual art and graphic design. For Frame 113, they travelled to Bette’s HQ to photograph the brand’s new fabric-clad bathtub. Born and raised and ‘seemingly forever exiled’ in Dallas, Texas, writer Evan Jehl is ‘a passive observer of design and nothing more’. After interning for Mark last year, he went on to contribute to Mark, Frame and other projects under the umbrella of Frame Publishers, including a forthcoming book on interior design for nightlife and hospitality venues. His observations on current trends spotted among the works of recent graduates appear on page 30. Design…

julien baiamonte’s rotating installation creates a ghostly soundscape

FRAM3 Check out Baiamonte’s mesmerizing sound installation in the digital magazine SOUND – Trained in graphic design at HEAD Genève, Julien Baiamonte seeks to bridge the gap between the rational and irrational in his work. His latest project, Vocal Chords of Spirit, investigates the relationship between technology and the occult. Modelled after 19th-century spirit trumpets – horn-shaped speaking tubes that were used in séances to channel voices from the ‘other side’ – the installation consists of two rotating plastic sculptures that form a tangible representation of sound waves. The eerie feedback they generate by simultaneously playing and recording an ambient soundscape is akin to electronic voice phenomena. Their circular movement distorts the audible frequencies of steel vibrations and wind echoes. julienbaiamonte.com Photo Dylan Perrenoud, HEAD Genève…

mi zhang’s sculptural dust collection is an attempt to improve air quality in a polluted chinese city

FRAM3 Travel to Quyang with the digital magazine MATERIALS – Thanks to its rich mineral resources, the city of Quyang in Northeast China boasts some of the largest mining and stone-working industries in the country. Unfortunately, Quyang also ranks high on the list of Chinese cities with serious air-pollution levels, because of the dust generated by these activities. Even though the source of the dust cannot be eliminated, Central Saint Martins graduate Mi Zhang sees a potential solution in ‘mining’ the dust. Combining pine resin, natural local pigments and marble dust from Quyang, she engineered a durable and fully biodegradable material, demonstrating its physical possibilities in a series of abstract vessels. mizhang.co…

eddie olin’s computer aesthetic eliminates the human presence from his 3d-printed rietveld chairs

TECHNOLOGY – Google’s DeepDream steps even closer to reality with Design 2.0, a project by Eddie Olin. By generating a feedback loop with a scanner and a 3D printer, the British creative led his computer to develop ‘its own visual language’, the result of random alterations that occurred as he printed up to eight scans of a single object. Olin gradually mutated images of Gerrit Rietveld’s furniture designs, ultimately making 3D-printed reproductions of the Dutchman’s simple rectilinear pieces, now transformed into jagged, polygonal blobs with minutely rippling surfaces. Viewers looking for a human presence in Olin’s work eventually come to the conclusion that what they are seeing are nonfunctional representations of Rietveld’s chairs. eddieolin.com…

kodai iwamoto’s infrared device doubles the heat while cutting the use of electricity in half

TECHNOLOGY – You probably heard the term ‘infrared’ in that science class you attended aeons ago – but did you understand what it meant? The Chochin heater, designed by Kodai Iwamoto, is your chance to dig a little deeper. You might remember that infrared light waves, like radio waves, fall outside the visual spectrum. That fact is the key to infrared heating, which is produced by light invisible to the naked eye. Chochin resembles a traditional lantern and generates heat via infrared radiation, but with a twist. Carbon fibres incorporated into the eco-friendly appliance’s filaments produce twice the heat of infrared radiation without carbon and use only half the electricity. Aimed at the Japanese market, where central heating is not the norm, Chochin can be hung on the wall, tucked under…
