experience 3.0

Google ‘photos of Woodstock’ and marvel at the whirlwind metamorphosis undergone by music festivals since 1969. The mother of all festivals took place on the rolling hills of a farm in upstate New York, where some 400,000 people gathered to listen to artists like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The celebration, billed as ‘three days of peace and music’, ultimately included a fourth day. Photos of the happening – most of them in black and white – reveal a great mass of what seem to be ecstatic music lovers, many half naked, dancing, happy, radiating love, often sporting groovy tie-dyed threads. Photos of the two stages are harder to find, but I did come across a few images of scaffolding, painted tent canvas and…

six n. five visualizes a new horizon for furniture design

FURNITURE – Spanish studio Six N. Five has built its business on making 3D visualizations of objects and interiors for the likes of Space10, Samsung and Massimo Dutti, all rendered in its trademark aesthetic – formally hyperreal but atmospherically dream-like. The studio’s ambition to pursue more passion projects, coupled with the realization that its portfolio had acted as an ad hoc education in furniture design, inspired creative director Ezequiel Pini to create Six N. Five’s first in-house collection: Holo-Scandinavian. Developed in collaboration with Brazilian product designer Artur de Menezes, the pieces are an on-brand mix of futurism and functionalism, with strong mid-century silhouettes upholstered in what appears to be a heat shield-like material, as if each item were designed to withstand interplanetary travel. It’s a supple, otherworldly series that feels…

benjamin hubert designs a first-class alternative for economy aircraft seating

MOBILITY – Those who fly economy know all about the physical recovery period that follows. Discomfort aside, more people are flying than ever before: in 2017, the International Air Transport Association reported a record-breaking 4.1 billion passengers worldwide. This growth has led to new cabin innovations, many of which are reserved for first-class and business flyers. But redesign is happening at the economy level, too: maybe you’ve seen Aviointerior’s vertically inclined Skyrider 2.0. Last spring, the saddle-like chair went viral. Reactions were half aghast, half curious: Stand up? For the entire flight? Luckily, Benjamin Hubert of London-based design agency Layer has a more promising alternative in mind. Developed for European aerospace corporation Airbus, Move is the prototype of a new concept for economy-class seating. The design taps into the potential of…

forget clay: these delftware vases are made from human tissue

BIODESIGN – During the Golden Age, the Dutch East India Company transported millions of items of Chinese porcelain to the Netherlands. Their picturesque appearance and detailed craftsmanship played a key role in the development of the signature style that is associated with delftware. Today, an Eindhoven-based Chinese designer moving in the opposite direction is changing the look and composition of Delft-blue pottery – and this time, it’s personal. Forget clay: Hongjie Yang’s vases are made from human tissue. Yang’s trio of vases – Semi-Human Delft Blue – was recently showcased as part of The Factory of Life, an exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The vessels, stained blue with a protein dye, feature human cells grown on biodegradable scaffolds used for cancer research. The pieces are Yang’s straightforward tribute to Dutch…
