Aaron: Packaging of the World
For being in essence a design site, I'm not totally nuts about the design of Packaging of the World. I do like it's curated look at packaging design, though. One that has no fear of everyday objects, (perish the paeans to preciousness) from a new look for Barbasol cans to how Wal-Mart presents its meat. There are worse ways to spend your time.
Miyoko: The 2009 Feltron Annual Report
Sarah: Fujisobo House
I spotted this copper-clad rarity at Archdaily earlier this week. It turns out that the three peaks on top are not just for visual effect, but to distribute daylight from the ceiling down through the white, cone-shaped interiors, and even into the lower levels through slits in the floor. The building is to house a beauty salon in Tokyo. It certainly won't be easy to overlook.
Jordan: Esther Coombs ceramics
Deep into a search for the perfect cup for tea, I stumbled upon the wonderfully upcycled work of Esther Coombs. The London–based artist finds ceramics from thrift stores and flea markets then hand-draws designs onto them, giving the tableware a brand new life and whole new look. I think I've finally found the mug of my dreams.
Amanda: Pitagori Suicchi
This week I am way into this weird-but-delightful educational puppet program from Japan. This particular episode features a Rube Goldberg Machine, which is described on Wikipedia as " a deliberately over-engineered machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion." Children of the 1980s might recall the covetous wonder inspired by the Rube Goldberg Machines that appeared in such fine and classic films as The Goonies and Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.
