01. Dieter Rams, the man who shaped our world

“Dieter Rams’s house in Kronberg, outside Frankfurt, is very, very neat. The floor is an infinite grid of cool white ceramic tiles, from which everything else takes its cue. Rectangular desks and shelves are crisply aligned, papers are aligned with the desk, paperweights aligned with the piles, with just the occasional foil of a circular bowl to break the rigid grip of the right angle. In his basement workshop, the tools are lined up with military precision, not a millimetre out of sync.” (timesonline)

02. Alex Creamer: NYC Spaghetti (above)

“I created this spaghetti packaging for a university project last year. The brief was to package one of 5 difficult items i.e. eggs, a rose, custard powder, spaghetti or marbles. I chose spaghetti. The spaghetti sits on a 3d model of the Chrysler building that was modeled on CAD by my friend Ben Thorpe. And then modeled out of high density foam at uni. Creating a spaghetti model of the Chrysler building!” (monoscope>substudio)

03. Saw this on Pedal Consumption…

“a bike rack that looks good when the bike is out to play. utilizing this rack in an apartment or room helps minimize clutter as it makes your prized bike a focal point rather than a hallway-hazard… this rack has been built to hold almost all bicycles, from steel frame track bikes, to cyclocross bikes to your favorite tri-bike. let me know your handlebar size so I can make it fit your bike specifically. also, let me know the size of your bike so we can make sure the frame fits.” (trksrex)
