Pushing the boundaries of 3-D printing, MIT and Stratasys have teamed up to create fibrous masks for Bjork. Yes, she’s at it again.  Using material ecology (the fusion of science, design and biology) to produce materials of collogen fibres emulating bone, muscle and hair in various opacities. Molded precisely to Bjork’s head, it moves in perfect syncronicity.

Fusing the art of sculpture and fleshy painting creates hyper-realistic forms that remain surreal in their context. Flesh for thought.

The Age Of The Long Near from The Future Laboratory on Vimeo.

London – This is The Age of the Long Near, in which we explore why short-term thinking is the greatest threat to business potential, our happiness as individuals and the world that sustains us.

The Future Laboratory’s creative team has produced a film for LS:N Global’s Spring/Summer 2015 Trend Briefing, which was held at South Bank on 12 March.

The video introduces The Optimised Self, our manifesto for the body and mind; Whole-system Thinking, consumerism that goes beyond sustainability and environmentalism; and The Immortal Brand, a new premise for businesses that want to thrive in The Age of the Long Near.

‘We wanted to establish the premise of The Age of the Long Near through a commanding spoken narrative,’ says Lynne Devine, who provided design and direction on the film. ‘The film traces the path of an orb as it evolves, regenerates and mutates before returning to a singularity, suggesting an infinite cycle of time with an element of the divine.’

Working in a particularly unusual void between sculpture and millinery, Maiko Takeda explores new volumes and innovative, spontaneous spins on everyday inspirations.
With a BA honours in jewellry from St. Martins and a masters in millinery from the Royal College of Art, she has also worked with the phenomenal Stephen Jones, Phillip Treacy, Erickson Beamon and Issey Miyake no less. It certainly shows.

This Jules Verne fantasy is to be found in Fiji and contains 25 amazing suites. One enters from a lift. This along with a bar, gym, spa, meeting room, chapel, lounge and more…a lot more for a very hefty, 30,000$ for a week for 2! There are, naturally, home versions. Well, if you have to ask, it’s too $$$. See POSEIDON




Fall makes a splash, literally, at Lanvin this coming season with the striking window displays at the Paris flagship this past July. It reminds me somewhat of seventies style: Racy Halston windows crossed with Antonio Lopez illustration.



Wise ideas.
