Want to see: The Bouroullec brothers Momentané exhibition at Les Arts Décoratifs, 107 Rue de Rivoli, Paris, until 1 September 2013.
A collaboration between Nike and creative studio Universal Everything shown during Milan Design Week 2013. The exhibit attempts to interpret body and motion through digital art and technology. It’s another interactive 3D digital experience folks. I particularly like the bell-jars used to house the footwear and the strangely organic and elastic digital sculpture seen in shots above.

The Royal Institute of British Architects collaborates with London’s Regent Street retailers to commission sculptural, digital and architectural window displays by young architects and practices. See them until 6th May.
I think they push VM up another level. Conceptual, creative and inspirational. Particularly like the Moss Bross x AY Architects Herringbone Window.
Architectural Photography by Nicholas Alan Cope (via the Stylesight Blog) sort of blows my mind.
Aluminium, Walnut and Silicone walking stick by Matthew Kroeker for Top & Derby - a renewed fashion accessory?
Came across this video of an Adidas virtual footwear wall by the digital agency Start JudgeGill. Touchscreens offer realtime renders of footwear the customer has selected based on their needs (sport type, gender etc.) and then offers exciting interactive visuals of the product.
This won Design Week’s 2012 Best Interactive Design Award
Pinned this to my Surfaces pin-board: A prototype of a rug that changes pattern as you walk over it. A playful, digital interactive experience.
Milan 2013 colour observations:
Warm and nostalgic with it’s burnt red and yellow ochres, which were balanced with pale tender rose tones.
Moroso at Milan 2013
Going to Milan-Salone del Mobile for the first time was always going to be full-on assault of the senses, so I’m just coming out of the design coma that it inflicted. But these pieces by Moroso really caught my imagination. Patricia Urquiola’s Fishbone Table collection, and Diesel’s successful living collection are a little bit sic-fi, a little bit exaggerated1950’s, with a murky and monochromatic ‘Night Call’ palette, that is shot with bright pastel accents. Intriguing.

I am astounded by these giant, geometric floor paintings by the artist Elvira Wersche.
This paintings inspirations came from the different global symbolisms of the Cross.
