Amber Chair by Jaeuk Jung
-The antique chair within was design by Micheal Tornett in 1986.
“A unique shoe which is inspired by a bird’s skull, the hollow heel of these 3D-printed shoes by are designed by Dutch fashion designer Marieka Ratsma and American architect Kostika Spaho. The designers have used the shape of a bird’s skull for the front of the shoe, with the pointed beak as the spike of the heel. It is very lightweight and its efficient structure of the hollow skull allowed the shoe to be 3D-printed using less material. Have a look at it!”
Bottle and carrier design for a premium Belgian IPA.
The name is from a ship that was built in 1936, which is now a floating museum in Oostende, Belgium.
All the ship elements is drawn by hand to get that crafted feeling, then etched into the bottles. The logo is also hand drawn, then embossed into the tag.
Each bottle has it’s own stamp for the lid with the same decoration as etched in front. They are all different, because they are meant to be collectibles.
The carry pack is similar crafted as an old ship box, with a hole to see the etching.

Makerbot Replicator 2
Improving on the wildly successful first version, “the Replicator 2 is poised to make desktop 3-D printing a far more ubiquitous technology. The new model is 37% bigger than MakerBot’s original, and prints with a far greater accuracy—100 microns per inch, to be exact (one micron is about as thick as a piece of paper). That means users will be able to print larger, faster, and more precisely than ever before. It’s also more durable than the original wooden Replicator, with a strong PVC and steel frame.” Fast Company Design
Cant wait to have one of these for personal use!

“Making the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier Fly”
It’s admittedly a far-fetched and kooky transportation design, but the flying quadrotor helicarrier featured in The Avengers, which wasn’t exactly a documentary, captured the imagination of youthful moviegoers earlier this year. It also came to the attention of a certain 40-something modelmaker and RC enthusiast from Arkhangelsk, Russia, who goes by the handle Native18. Google Translator’s done a spotty job, but from what we gather, Native18 is well-known in the Russian RC community, and on this forum, that community discusses Hollywood-designed vehicles and if they can be replicated. The S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier challenge was posed to Native18.
Yes, there’s video. I can’t even…
Achim Menges in collaboration with Steffen Reichert produced the installation entitledHygroScope – Meteorosensitive Morphology at the Centre Pompidou, Paris in 2012. They have created models out of wood that are purposefully designed to interact with moisture found in the air. After years of research they have developed the system calledHygroScope. This climate-responsive composite material is comprised of maple veneer and synthetic composites. It responds to humidity in a such a way that the material appears to be “breathing”. The models are displayed in glass cases that can be programed to control the amount of humidity in the air, the composite materials then respond to these environments creating completely unique visual experiences.
