Not only did Vitra re-create the amazing Eames Plywood
Elephant but Eames Demetrios has created a nice stop
frame animation featuring these chaps called "A Gathering
Of Elephants". Check it out here because it'll make you smile.
So Nintendo are releasing the above BApe DS and Fragment
and Honeyee DS. Both are incredibly under-whelming with the
Fragment one doing the exciting thing of maing it black and
slapping on the logos. Whoa, almost as envelope pushing as
the umbrella they brought out a while back.
The BApe version also comes in gold and is out in Japan on
1st April. Irony?

Above is an image of the Bombay Sapphire Revelation,
one of 5 spirit bottles designed by Karim Rashid.
The bottles are handcrafted bare crystal and finished
with sapphires and diamonds which I guess explains the
Think I'll stick with the Martin(e) Miller('s).
I sit with a Solitary Arts figure on my desk at work
and so any Geoff McFetridge news is good with me.
He currently has a rather splendid looking exhibition
called "Two Lines Align" with Ed Fella at the REDCAT
gallery in LA. If you're around I'd check it.
I'm a big fan of The Wire but these clothes they got Staple
(yawn) to produce are simply dull or pretty ugly.
On the plus side only 20 of each one were made.
Yesterday I went through to Glasgow and caught the show
by Insa at the ReCoat Gallery. The work is nice and although
the spot is quite wee it's cool that they are out there doing it.
Go check it out.
Next on the horizon is Edinburgh's one man army Elph.
Well it's that time again and my Powerbook has no longer
decided to give up powering itself so the G®T has taken a
small slowdown but thanks to my H.O.B I'm rocking a wee
iBook for the weekend so here's some freshness or some
stuff I should have mentioned before.
Firstly, above is a stand for the slim-line TVs created by
Swedish designer Axel Bjurström and is based on an artists
easel and was presented at the Stockholm Furniture Fair.

Again I dunno what to make of these. From the side they
look alright but the Cheetah skin tongue and laces are
what makes these forthcoming Dunk SBs a bit less appealing
to me. The theme is based on Ferris Beuller's Day Off.
