Quote of Note | Takashi Murakami

Unbeige - Fri, 08/01/2014 - 21:51

“I have this idea for a sweet comedy about death. A middle-aged author of e-books, with middling sales, retreats deep into the mountains of Japan to build a grave for his recently deceased father. After getting scammed out of all of his money, he falls into despair, but for some unknown reason he is visited by a savior in the form of a middle-aged woman. And then his divorced wife from ten years ago appears unexplainably too. Then this young woman with whom he spent a single night in a club many years ago is being treated for an incurable disease in the mountainside sanatorium, and she comes to him for emotional support. I’d love to do that story.”

-Artist Takashi Murakami discussing his filmmaking aspirations in a recent interview. Also on his wishlist? “Some form of a collaboration with J.J. Abrams.”

Favorite Thing: New Dyson Bladeless Fan

Unbeige - Thu, 07/31/2014 - 13:24

It was only a few years ago that James Dyson and his crack team of engineers (all of whom we like to imagine wearing jaunty striped shirts as they labor to achieve incremental yet significant improvements upon previously undesirable household appliances) debuted the Air Multiplier, a bladeless wonder that did for blowing what Dyson’s streamlined vaccuums did for sucking. A new range of the distinctive shaped fans is here, and it’s even cooler—literally.

Dubbed “Dyson Cool,” the new fans are up to 75% quieter than their predecessors, a fact that has not escaped the watchful ears of those at the delightfully named Noise Abatement Society, which has—with no bells and whistles—awarded its Quiet Mark to the new Air Multiplier technology. Dyson engineers managed to hush the fan by reducing the turbulence of high-velocity air, cancelling out specific tones: notably those buzzy ones at 1,000Hz, which are similar to the frequency of the noise produced by the incessant wing beat of mosquitoes. This feat was achieved in part by the addition of something called a “Helmholtz cavity,” which we like to imagine was also the name of a young Dyson’s garage band. The price for all of this innovation? Dyson estimates the R&D costs at $65 million. The desktop AM06 model will set you back $299.99, but you’ll be all the cooler for it.

Design Nerd? There’s an App for That!

Unbeige - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 13:34

When’s the last time you heard Alex Trebek call out categories such as SERIFS, TWENTIETH-CENTURY LOGOTYPES, or SAGMEISTER CLASS? We bet our cache of potent potables that it’s never. Enter Kevin Finn. The Australian, who we last encountered in his capacities as editor and publisher of Open Manifesto, has created DESIGNerd 100*, a design trivia app that tests your knowledge of typography, publishing, advertising, branding, contemporary design studios, packaging, motion graphics and more. And in building out the first volumes, Finn went straight to the experts, tapping Stefan Sagmeister, Steven Heller, and Lita Talarico to contribute their personal questions (100 each).

“I’m a self-confessed design nerd, passionate about all forms of design,” says Finn. “I simply wanted to share design knowledge with other design enthusiasts, but in a fun and engaging way.” Among the well-designed twists of the app, available through the iTunes App Store (an Android version is in progress), are the bonus facts studded throughout the game. (Did you know that Jonathan Barnbrook’s Mason typeface, was originally called Manson—after the serial killer Charles Manson and in a nod to the extreme opposites the typeface was intended to express? Emigre Fonts dropped the “n” after the complaints started to pour in.) “New volumes to add to the series are underway,” promises Finn, “as are plans to launch the trivia game as a standalone app that will house all volumes in the series.”
