A bleeding umbrella
2019-05-02 14:51

Seeing rain falling in May is like opening an ice cream pot and finding it empty…it’s devastating and should never happened. Then when you’re in this kind of mood, why not using a Pennywise umbrella? With the intimidating face of Stephen King’s monstrous clown, this brolly starts bleeding with a few drops of water. But since every cloud has a silver lining, this bloody umbrella should free you the way in the street. The principle is quite easy, a white hydrochromic coating is applied on the drawing so that the blood only appears when water make the pigment disappear for a short time.

Slow Lens
2019-04-05 16:32

"Slow lens" is the last piece of the artist Vincent Leroy, a fine explorer of matter and its capacities, whom he likes to push to his limits by playing with light and its optical effects. This assembly of suspended lenses seems to float in the air, a kind of spatio-temporal flaw capable of cutting, splitting, reflecting but also revealing the space it occupies. The artist has installed this poetic mirage in several places in the Paris region, including under a bridge (see images), and offers us a disturbing play of light and shadow!

Sublimated matter in Shanghai
2019-03-09 20:16

This week the latest achievements of the Buzao workshop, a Chinese workshop that sublimates the material used, are presented at the Shanghai Design Show. After having revisited ceramics and concrete, here are some beautiful benches and tables. The Hot collection, in steel with titanium anodizing treatment, playing on the random, flashy, psychedelic side of the multicolored electrochemical deposit, while the Null range is more in "calm, luxury and voluptuousness" atmosphere, with a range of glass furniture with a subtle gradient of blue, all in transparency and play with light.
If you're in the area, why not go to the Neuni matériO showroom in Shanghai!

3D concrete to simulate the Mangrove
2019-02-01 14:32

A collaboration between the Reef Design Lab and the Sydney Institute of Marine Science, this project, supported by Volvo, is an interesting example of what biomimesis can lead to: The 3D printing of about fifty hexagonal tiles made of concrete reinforced with recycled plastic fibre directly fixed on the seawalls along Sydney Bay in order to encourage the proliferation of marine fauna and flora on the coast. The holding of these tiles is directly inspired by the tangle of the Mangrove trees root system, known to be perfect marine refuges, and on its porous and furrowed surface, which seems to have been created by the gentle water erosion. Marine biodiversity should therefore instinctively cling to it, and molluscs in particular are expected for their amazing filtration and purification capacities (oysters for example), which should find houses more welcoming and protective than on conventional linear dikes, and settle peacefully there to work quietly to recover marine biodiversity.
