This week's MoCo picks.
+ Yohji Yamamoto + Adidas = new Y-3 collection. There’s something about the junction of sports brands and high fashion that’s weirdly compelling. Maybe it’s form, function and art for performance. Via jeansnow.net.
+ Designer Heath Nash’s reuse designs, that’s a Flowerball light above, @ PingMag. “…creating lifestyle objects from other people’s rubbish doesn’t sound too sexy at first, but when looking at your objects all possible doubts are immediately blown away.”.
+ Architects Jackson Clements Burrows replaced a decaying cottage with a projection of a cottage with the “form, scale and detail [of] the surrounding buildings which make up the heritage streetscape” @ NOTCOT.
+ Ecopod E1 Series sorter-compactor designed with help from BMW DesignWorksUSA. “… a household recycling center that aims to change the way consumers take out their trash. The appliance houses a compactor, and provides an efficient way to crush, store and redeem recyclable beverage containers, specifically plastic bottles and aluminum cans.”. Via Springwise & Treehugger.
+ Buro Vormkrijgers’ broken Cesi light. “A broken bulb does not function, or does it?! This design plays with the stereotypes imprinted in our mind, adding a little magic to our daily lives. Featuring a handblown bulb from safety glass, with no sharp edges, and a cleverly hidden LED lightsource with a lifetime up to 100.000 hours, it requires no maintenance.”. Via Core77.
+ Pantone unveils the Top 10 Colors for Spring 2007 @ Dexigner. "Each season, Pantone surveys the designers showing at New York Fashion Week to collect feedback on prominent collection colors, color inspiration, color philosophy and each designer's signature shade."
