01. Digital Wallpaper (above)

“The basic idea was to light up the black and white striped office wall by mapping the architecture with multitple projectors. The program developed by Strukt is scripted in vvvv and is scaleable to any number of projectors and any architectural shape. Several different visualisations have been realised already, amongst it a Pac Man animation as well as moving stripes, and more are in development. The content could also be made interactive, reacting to people passing the ground-floor offices.” (likecool)

02. East German Design Photo Gallery

“Futurist-about-town Bruce Sterling takes a look into the past with his suh-weet Flickr gallery of the “Industrial design of the German Democratic Republic” exhibit from this month’s Gogbot festival in Germany, curated by critic Gunter Hohne. Who knew what those East German designers were doing all that time behind that wall?” (core77)

03. Colander Table by Daniel Rohr

“Colander, a table of 909 holes, is the latest project by Daniel Rohr, designed to delete space and material. Produced by way of a CNC milling process, the polished aluminium tabletop starts out at a weight of 408 kg. (899 lbs.). The space between the plate glass top and the metal bowl makes any object that is set upon the table seem to hover above it. It takes about four weeks for the production of one table, to be produced in an edition of ten.” (mocoloco)

04. The Avengers Early Episodes Get New Dvd Reissue

“Just two and a half first series episodes survive, but thankfully all of series 2 is still around, all fully restored (for the first time) and of course with Patrick Macnee playing Steed, Honor Blackman doing the partner thing as Catherine/Cathy Gale. The entire eight-disc set has a running time of 1,520 minutes, augmented by extras including a 132-page book covering series one, a series one scrapbook, scripts, materials, stills, promotional brochures, audio commentaries and an Honor Blackman interview – most of that new for this release.” (retrotogo)
