This week's picks:
+ Designguide.TV's video of Okay Studio's Under the same roof show at the Aram store in London. "The exhibition will transform the Aram Gallery into a series of 'rooms' that will represent the working spaces of each of the members of the studio, reflecting on how they operate successfully as colleagues rather than as a branded consultancy".
+ prototype EXHIBITION2 show coverage at architecturephoto.net, "This collection of prototypes and in-process design work illustrates the discovery, frustration and serendipity of the design process and highlights how prototypes are used as vehicles for solving problems and generating new ideas.".
+ Deceptive Design: Experiments in Furniture at Core77, "The exhibition features prototype furniture, furnishings and functional objects that challenge convention with innovative concepts and compelling forms.".
+ Kram/Weisshaar's My Private Sky dishes, a "limited-edition, hand made and hand painted collection of dinner plates, which feature a pattern of constellations... when placed together the plates form the full night sky.". Via designboom.
+ Michael Young's i24R3 wireless speaker system for EOps "with satellite speakers and a bass dock... the i24R3 includes a wireless USB audio transmitter dongle that lets you stream music from your iTunes or music programs on your computer.". Via designboom.
+ The Nooka Zon watch at Designnotes, "One function displays the time in big digital numbers while the other way shows time in squares. Each square represents a minute and collectively those squares fill a line.".
+ Tantilizing Textiles of Japan at PingMag, "PingMag headed down to the Japan Creation textile fair to check out the colors and textures that will be influencing Japanese fashion come autumn 2009 and beyond.".
+ Thrifty shopping with Philippe Starck at the LA Times, "'We have been sticking our money into the fan,' he says, miming a stack of bills being shredded by the blades of a ceiling fan. 'We must be more intelligent now.'". Yep, more intelligent now. Via Archinect.
