It's a Little Bit Weird

@ VOL 66 ON OCT 28, 2009

British designer Anthony Dickens gives us an insight into the weird things that inspire him.

In 1998 Anthony Dickens founded his London product and furniture design studio to design better relationships between people and objects, blending utility with simple narratives and re-imagining the everyday things that surround us. Initially designing and manufacturing his own range of lighting, Anthony’s work is diverse, often bridging the gap between product design and communications. Anthony has worked for Audi, Veuve Clicquot and Red Bull bringing the essence of brands to life. 

In 2006 he achieved notable success with the launch of the Origami Table, a range of dining, side and coffee tables. It won the Elle Decoration Best Table Award 2007 and is now produced by Innermost. The Anglepoise® Fifty, a light that encapsulated the Anglepoise® brand and story, was shortlisted for the Designs of the Year 2007 and is now part of the London Design Museum collection.

Other notable products include Tekiō, currently nominated for Designs of the Year 2013, the Around Clock and Kitchen Timer for Lexon and the Scoot pizza cutter for Joseph Joseph.

Free FuTool

@ VOL 7 ON NOV 21, 2013

Jacopo Sterlocchi presenta Free Futool:

FreeFuTool nasce dall’idea di 4 studenti e da un gioco: “Una start-up al giorno”. Ogni giorno, per l’appunto, bisogna proporre al gruppo un'idea imprenditoriale.

Qualcuna magari funziona, qualche altra no. Finché un giorno arriva Free Futool: il primo quaderno per appunti distribuito gratuitamente agli student universitari. 

Il quaderno è un prodotto di alta qualità tipografica, composto da 80 pagine formato A4, carta uso mano riciclata a quadretti in cui gli studenti troveranno spazi per scrivere, prendere appunti, allenare la mente, riflettere e godere di promozioni pensate ad hoc.

Dopo un'anno dal lancio del primo numero, avvenuto ad ottobre 2012, ed i successivi due numeri di dicembre ed aprile, Free FuTool è sbarcato a Roma, raggiungendo il numero di 340.000 quaderni distribuiti ed arrivando così a presidiare ben 6 città oltre la capitale: Milano, Genova, Torino, Firenze, Padova ed anche Venezia.

PechaKucha Night in Miami is readying for a special edition event, in collaboration with the Hospitality Design Boutique Exposition & Conference.

Pecha Kucha: Design Authenticity will feature eights presenters sharing their perspectives from international research, cutting edge technology, the humanities, social responsibility, and ecology.
