Drink Champagne, Design Tiny Chair, Repeat

Unbeige - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 12:17

DWR ChampChair_2014finalists

Two of our favorite things—Champagne and chairs—come together in a festive contest from the bubbly furniture fans at Design Within Reach. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: create an original miniature chair using only the foil, label, cage, and cork from no more than two Champagne bottles (glue is the only permitted adhesive). Entering is the easy part. Simply snap a photo of your tiny, fizzy throne and upload it here. A panel of Champagne-loving chair experts, including DWR Founder Rob Forbes and Brooklyn-based design studio Egg Collective, will judge the chairs in an event on February 11 at DWR’s SoHo studio, and three winners will receive DWR gift cards: the first-place prize (a $1,000 gift card) will cover the cost of a Prouvé Standard Chair, in which you can sit and sip more champagne to celebrate. Drink fast, because the deadline for entries is Thursday, January 12.

Quote of Note | James Welling on Publishers’ Logos

Unbeige - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 10:37


“In the early 1970s the most cited writer in Artforum was the French phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty. So I sought out Merleau-Ponty’s books published by Northwestern University Press. After some struggle I realized I couldn’t make sense of his ideas. But I came to love his publisher’s distinctive interlocking arrows on the front cover, and the interior layout and typeface. So I looked for other books published by Northwestern. When I was in New York I’d visit Papyrus Books near Columbia University and spend the evening reading philosophy and poetry in the aisles. Then I’d carefully select one volume to buy. Like Northwestern’s arrows, each publisher had a distinctive, memorable logo. Vintage Books had a fiery, anthropomorphic sun on its spine; Hill and Wang’s logo comprised interlocking black letter initials; George Braziller’s clean serif-type name locked down the title page; Grove Press placed a funny Y on the spine. Each publisher’s logo held the promise of an exciting and difficult intellectual journey.”

—Artist James Welling, a professor in the department of art and the area head of photography at the University of California, Los Angeles, in “A List of Favorite Anythings,” which appears in the winter issue of Aperture

With Malformed, Give the Gift of Medical Oddities

Unbeige - Thu, 12/18/2014 - 12:22


What do you get for the person who has everything (and anyone with the last name “Sedaris”)? A cache of formalin-preserved human brains, of course—or at least exquisite photos of them. Such is the creeptastic achievement of photographer Adam Voorhes and journalist Alex Hannaford‘s Malformed, new from powerHouse Books. The book lingers on the sulci and gyri of human brains assembled by the Austin State Hospital—né the Texas State Lunatic Asylum—and traces the sordid history of the collection. The normal and abnormal specimens were languishing in a storage closet at the University of Texas when Voorhes came upon them in 2011 while on assignment for Scientific American. He and Hannaford soon discovered that the current collection is about half the size of the original. “It’s a mystery worthy of a hard-boiled detective novel,” notes Hannaford, “100 brains missing from campus, and apparently no one really knows what happened to them.”

Stereotank Drums Up a Winner for Times Square Valentine Heart Competition

Unbeige - Wed, 12/17/2014 - 21:51


Architects Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente march to the beat of a different drummer. Their Brooklyn-based firm, Stereotank, specializes in designing and constructing “inhabitable sound instruments and installations” as part of a broader exploration of the relationships between space and sound. This cross-discplinary approach was music to the ears of the judges for the Architectural League of New York’s invited competition to design the 2015 Times Square Valentine Heart, besting six other design proposals.

Come February, Stereotank’s HeartBeat (rendered above) will be realized as a public art installation celebrating Valentine’s Day in Times Square. The massive heart glows to the rhythm of a strong, deep, and low frequency heartbeat sound that changes its rate as visitors approach, move around, and engage with it by playing various percussion instruments and joining the base rhythm of the heartbeat. “Love is about sharing and being ‘in tune’ with somebody, so it is the creation of music, a concert is a combined action where the performers are also ‘in tune’ creating harmony, say Ertorteguy and Valente. “HeartBeat orchestrates Times Square’s unique, active, flickering atmosphere.”
