Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet Hybrid Grill

Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet Grills

For our new June 2011 Beach Houses We Love issue, I set up shop in a backyard with seven mini grills for an afternoon of barbecuing and product testing. These little charcoal cookers are great for tailgating and small gatherings, but what you really want to barbecue on on a regular basis is a Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet Hybrid grill.

Friday Finds 6.3.11

On this Friday, a selection of treasures mined from the deepest depths of the web: the inspiration for iPods, a reggae classic, architecture so good you could eat it, and an epic tennis match (that's happening right now!).

Love Earth book

Love Earth: Eco Ideas and Designs

Victionary's new book, Love Earth, is an ode to green design—the cover is even made from the recycled scraps from the bookmaking process. Inside its cover, the volume starts with a mini-book featuring 100 Eco Ideas, green tips and suggestions solicited from the public and illustrated Guillaume Kashima. (Idea No. 80: Bind cork stoppers with a band as heat insulation coasters for kitchens.) The rest of the book features 100 eco-designs that range from products to packaging. While some are green in their use (or reuse) of materials and their innovative processes, some simply remind you to be conscious of the environment with their quirky, sometimes strange perspectives. We take a closer look at 11 designs featured in Love Earth.

world views book announcement

Announcing The World Views Photo Book

It's inevitable that most of us wind up in the same routine and see the same landscapes or cityscapes over and over again. We get caught up so easily in the every day that the views and sights we regularly see start to fade in their brilliance. So we launched our inaugural photography competition, World Views, to inspire you to take in old sights anew! Now we're hard at work culling together the best shots to be included in Dwell's first-ever photo book, which will be unveiled at Dwell on Design.

Stedelijk Museum Posters

Upon entering the bright white interior of Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum, a series of floor-to-ceiling posters that once advertised past exhibitions greets visitors. It's a striking display that shows how the musem has promoted itself, and its shows, to the public since opening in 1895. Though there are a wide variety of designers and artists represented, those who helmed the Stedelijk as director—including Willem Sandberg from 1945 to 1962—and who were in charge of printed matter—like Wim Crouwel from 1963 to 1984—especially helped to create a strong visual identity for the cultural institution. The building itself is in the process of expanding with an expected grand opening date late next year, and until a climitization system is built in, only pieces that are not damaged easily are able to be shown. As such, these are all individual repreductions of the originals, which are in the permanent collection. Unfortunately, there are no prints for sale (although I'm sure they could make a killing), but I've snapped a few of my favorites here. Click on through to the slideshow for a taste of graphic design through the ages.

Architectmade

In 2005, Danish company Architectmade launched with the goal of bringing to light products designed by architects. The company has since begun producing a handful of items from designers of the likes of Poul Kjærholm, Jørn Utzon, Finn Johl, and Hans Bølling, working with the artists, their families, or their foundations to secure the rights to issue or reissue the designs. Here we take a tour through Architectmade's collection.

Neutra Box

When Hector Perez couldn't find the ideal mailbox to install outside of his Eichler in Oakland, California, he decided to make his own. "It was really born out of frustration," says Perez, a composer for Music Orange, of his foray into product design. "We couldn't find a mailbox for our modern home that was a simple, true, mimimalist design."
