Ross Lovegrove shares organic design

Thursday, June 13, 2013

TED has been for me in the last decade a great source of inspiration and shared knowledge.

TED is a website gathering inspirational, fascinating and informative talks. I have been using it for years, as a source of inspiration or to motivate a team on a specific project. ted-th Ross Lovegrove is one a the few designers I express admiration for, with Ron Arad. Here is a talk by Ross Lovegrove on his approach on design on TED: Ross Lovegrove This design talk is not so recent, but I find it still quite relevant! This what TED says: "Designer Ross Lovegrove expounds his philosophy of “fat-free” design and offers insight into several of his extraordinary products, including the Ty Nant water bottle and the Go chair. Known as "Captain Organic," Ross Lovegrove embraces nature as the inspiration for his "fat-free" design. Each object he creates -- be it bottle, chair, staircase or car -- is reduced to its essential elements. His pieces offer minimal forms of maximum beauty".  

apple... a long story of design

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Mac pro redesign is today's topic

and not the new OS7, sorry! :-) apple is coming back with another unusual design. I've seen quite a few designer making fun of this new approach, I think it is relevant and maybe even nice on your future desk? macpro-apple-2013-design-th

apple says: "When we began work on the next Mac Pro, we considered every element that defines a pro computer — graphics, storage, expansion, processing power, and memory. And we challenged ourselves to find the best, most forward-looking way possible to engineer each one of them. When we put it all together, the result was something entirely new. Something radically different from anything before it. Something that provides an extremely powerful argument against the status quo. Here’s a sneak peek at what’s next for the pro computer".

Australian artist and designer, Belinda

Wednesday, June 12, 2013


Elegant, simple, beautiful and minimal design:

  by Belinda Winkler, a Tasmanian based designer and artist Gravity-Align-Brink-Belinda-Winkler-13 I guess there is no need to say more about her work! Maybe acknowledge the photographer: Peter Whyte, who did a really good job capturing the essence of Belinda's work. Gravity-Align-Brink-Belinda-Winkler-4 Belinda Winkler Belinda Winkler - Vitrify 0311 From her website: "An artist and designer, Belinda Winkler’s practice spans ceramics, sculpture, public art and design. A maker by nature, she is happiest when covered in plaster and surrounded by an array of fresh warm casts, each imbued with the tension and pressure of its creation and loaded with potential. At the heart of her practice is the poetic notion of a sense of life within form. This notion rests on two assumptions; firstly, that curves projecting tension and energy are difficult to view with detachment. Such curves invite associations beyond the visual and the intellectual. They are evocative, and thus have the potential to generate connections, sensually, emotionally and imaginatively - they tempt touch, be that with the eyes, the hands, the memory or the imagination. The second assumption is that that the tactile dimension of these works is deeply implicated in these connections. A recurring thread within Belinda’s work is the relationship between forms, where curve almost meets curve, nearly, but not quite touching, creating a spatial tension, charged with anticipation."

I usually don't post much on graphic design

but I have to make an exception to the rule! I find the work on the brand for the Whitney museum of modern art quite intriguing, spiffy – as my friend Pete would say – and creative, even playful! 1672665-slide-whitney-2013redesign-bookplate 1672665-slide-whitney-2013redesign-buttons 1672665-slide-whitney-2013redesign-kidssuite 1672665-slide-whitney-2013redesign-membershipbrochures 1672665-slide-whitney-2013redesign-stationery

Designing confidence:

Sunday, June 02, 2013

I find this work quite clever:

Scott Summit, a product designer, proves that design thinking can improve people's lives.

I have been using 3D printers and digital scanners for the last 20 years, so I'm not too impressed by this aspect of the work, but I really like the way his design changed people's perceptions (one of my favourite topics!):

Perhaps the next step could be industrial design applied to prosthetics, so that more can benefit from this design thinking.

Here is Scott's Webpage:


"Philippe is a gifted Industrial Designer with the rare ability of coming up with relevant concepts and strategies on one hand and the ability of leading and inspiring a cross functional team to turn concepts up into profitable products on the other hand. One is his award winning products did create a whole new trend/category within the aquarium market."

— Alain Mars

"I reached out to Philippe for advice about a product innovation I had invented, because I was unsure how to move it forward. It was such a joy to exchange ideas with a fellow 'inventor' who warned me about all thinkable pitfalls, yet was encouraging and practical in his suggestions to take it to the next level. I've got a long way to go and therefore I cherish the priceless source of information and inspiration Philippe is, as an expert in bringing innovations to the market."

— Johanna Canberra
