    Nature Applied

    As lighting designer Gwen Carlton puts it on her website, her aesthetic is Grimm's Fairy Tales set in 1930s Paris–though nothing about her is grim. She creates lighting with her own two hands...

    Portmanteau

    A wall of cinderblock, tiny windows, layers of dust and a steel door: for some, this is a typical Manhattan apartment. For others, it's the scene before the murder scene in a horror flick. For Jim...

    External Hard Drives Take Design Cues from Macs

    It's kind of hard to get excited about external hard drives. That's not to say they're not useful, or that manufacturers haven't been doing their best to gussy up these bland, utilitarian devices...
