london-based 3D artist and animation director martin salfity, together with nico warschauer, present hardcore squidgy, a fantastically strange film that sees squidgy creatures interact with hard surfaces. as a self-initiated project, the goal was to explore, learn and eventually discover something unique. they embarked themselves on a journey through abstract CGI and digital sound FX and music that resulted in this mixture of colors, shapes and textures that create contrasting impressions as they move around somewhat familiar territories.

That’s the premise of Kano, a DIY computer kit company that today is releasing an update to its successful build your own laptop kit. “We thought, what would be cooler than a laptop you make yourself? A touchscreen laptop you make yourself,” says Kano’s CEO and cofounder Alex Klein.

Cobbling together a DIY dossier about a celebrity is a time-honored internet tradition. Scan a few Wikipedia pages, click through some Google images, scroll through social media accounts, maybe some dubious gossip sites, and you have a snapshot of the person’s life. Now Google wants to do that detective work for you, accessible in a format that owes a lot to Instagram stories, except showcasing the highlights of a person’s life instead of just their day.

the west bund in shanghai is a neighborhood known for its art museums, a riverfront boardwalk, and recreational greenbelt — it’s not surprising to find here a continuous growth in residents and visitors who look for family activities and socio-cultural events. with the increasing flows come marketplaces like the ‘sunny walk’, an open mall that caters to local commercial and community needs. given the opportunity to design a gallery in this shopping compound for u concept gallery, a brand that combines cultural, educational and commercial programs in one location, lukstudio has created a folded arcade to channel the surrounding civic energies into a semi-public retail experience.

Working with Dutch studio Scholten & Baijings—known for bringing a conceptual, candy-colored touch to established modern brands like Herman Miller, Maharam, and HAY—Ikea invited the designers to revisit a few of its salient classics. The studio’s limited-edition collection, Lyskaft (Swedish for “Luminosity”) brings a refreshed, edited take on the ubiquitous Poang lounge chair and Klippan sofa, with features that include new colored, textured seat covers and geometric, screw-on sofa legs that one might normally seek out on a site like Pretty Pegs, Bemz, or any number of cottage-industry specialists that have made a business model of selling niche, Ikea-specific accessories.

office of architecture in barcelona‘s ‘cocina hermanos torres’ is a project, born of a wish to generate a new experience for the world of cuisine and catering — a new space, one that is ideal for living a new culinary experience, where ‘container and content come together in the interests of a unique piece’. from the very beginning, the project has been aiming at — as the owners say — creating ‘a kitchen with a restaurant’, a space, where the cuisine is a highlight, while the surrounding sitting area is there for observing the sacred process of cooking.
