An interesting look at the evolution of the ‘Matt Layzell’ logo from 1928-2049 (present day). A lot of people forget the company started out selling fish and the animation/ illustration was purely for money laundering purposes. #logodesinger#dolphinboy#designhistory

Chair inspired by Gertrude Stein’s Picasso chairs. The tapestry on this chair by the French artist Buberoff is from @1stdibs. Interior design firm @the.archers.inc used it to upholster a chair the client already owned. Photo @archdigest. Chic cactus 🌵 collection. #artathome#designhistory ⠀

iPod introduction in October 2001 was groundbreaking. “1000 songs in your pocket” – it was absolutely unbelievable, no one did it before.
Apple is known for the simplicity, functionality and elegance of their designs.
iPod developers had come a long way from the first design of the 2001 year with mechanical scroll wheel, to the 2004 year iPod model when it finally got its iconic click wheel.
I decided to analyze 5th generation of iPod Classic because, for my opinion, this is the most refined version. The key difference between 5th and the last, 6th iPod design is in its thickness. The front view remains the same for both versions.
The charm of the iPod design is that no any single element is accidental. For analyzing I took one of my favourite methods – Golden Ratio grid, and, as I supposed, it worked almost perfectly. GR is a subconscious evolutionary thing, and lots of designers are using it [consciously or subconsciously] to make their designs feel right and well proportioned.
I suppose, here GR is used consciously because the final design is so much in line with it. For sure, the manufacturing process always makes some adjustments, but the role of a product designer is to help the expectations and reality meet in a right place. Apple designers are always a good example of it.

Leplì by Kensaku Oshiro for Poltrona Frau "Um banquinho acolchoado, um banco e um apoio para os pés. O designer japonês, Kensaku Oshiro, projetou três peças com grande versatilidade ainda com uma forte identidade. Para esta coleção, o designer inspirou-se nos processos e decorações tradicionais de produção de Poltrona Frau, combinando-os com idéias personalizadas do mundo da moda. As costura clássicas e as dobras suaves melhoram o minimalismo sinuoso do design. As curvas voluptuosas das fezes, são inspiradas pela forma do corpo feminino, como se fosse um vestido, com cinto fino destacando sua "cintura". O estofamento de couro vem com a mesma cor do couro, enquanto o estofamento de tecido vem sempre com couro. O quadro é em madeira compensada de abedul e álamo com montantes em faia sólida. A base é em álamo multicamadas com fundo em MDF lacado preto e sem raspas. Almofada com espuma de poliuretano e pasta de poliéster. Estofamento disponível em Pelle Frau® ou em produtos têxteis Poltrona Frau. A coleção Leplì agora é enriquecida por um pufe de recipiente novo e elegante. Com um formato agridovelmente alongado e alongado, este elemento é um assento acessível e também perfeito para o quarto. Um sistema mecânico escondido prático facilita a abertura com uma ação simples, permitindo que você acesse o compartimento interno espaçoso." #design#designhistory#designdeproduto#productdesign#industrialdesign#desigers#InteriorDesign#DesigndeInteriores#cool#inovation#idea#inspiration#metal#aço#modulo#mobile#furniture#mobiliario#moveis#fun#cool#nice#clean#madeira#personality#identity

A recent, exciting addition to the Archives: Yale Burge may be best known as the interior designer and antiques purveyor who launched Angelo Donghia's career and who brought the French Country look to America, but before he started his business and shortly after graduating from Pratt Institute's School of Architecture, Burge volunteered for the Royal Air Force as a model and map maker before the US even entered WWII. In 1942, he was then transferred to the US Army's Engineer Model Makers Detachment when his native country entered the war.
Recently his son Robert Burge dropped off a book his father had, published by the Army in 1945 chronicling the activities of this unit made up largely of artists, architects and designers, many of them still in school when they volunteered.
Here are a few scans of the publication, showing Yale at work and the models the unit created for D-Day, among so many others.
Happy to add this to the collection. #nysidarchives#designhistory#militaryhistory#ww2
