There’s something extra eerie about places that are not quite abandoned just yet, but edging closer and closer to a prolonged death process. Relics of another time, these architectural remnants feel like physical connections to all the lives that passed through them, many of which have already met an end. Lacking any efforts to preserve or revive them, they slowly crumble, waiting for their inevitable demolition. Photographer Michael Eastman specializes in capturing such places on film in all their deteriorating glory.

robert stadler has designed a new version of the drucker rattan chair, an icon of parisian bistros first created in 1885 by french furniture company maison drucker. combining traditional know-how of rattan manufacturing with the advantages of an aluminum base, the corso chair overcomes two weaknesses of the original design: the humidity that infiltrates by capillarity and the difficulty of stacking due to the reinforcing cross.all images © studio robert stadler

there is a metal kilogram weight deemed so valuable it resides under lock and key in an underground vault in paris. for over a century this relic has been kept safe, protected by three vacuum-sealed bell jars. it’s called the international prototype kilogram, or IPK, a block made of platinum and iridium that defines, not only the weight of a kilogram, but every weight in the world. the world’s scales are also defined according to this weight with copies of it distributed around the world to calibrate every sort of weighing device, from supermarkets to bakeries. and so, since its creation in 1889 its purpose has been to simply exist.
