Felix the robot conductor at the launch of Intelligent Sounds

This morning's star: Felix the robot conductor. I wanted to make a Short Circuit joke but was worried I was the only person old enough to get it.

LISTEN > James Winter on the launch of Brand X (including a fiendish number of crochet penii)

Launch of Brand X, including a fiendish number of crochet penii.

We’ve known them as Queen Street Studios, or Fraser Studios, and now, reborn as Brand X, they’re going to keep contributing to the Sydney creative scene.

Brand X director James Winter joined us in the 2SER studio to talk about his latest initiative: creating a department store for local artists and creatives, giving six groups of six artists six months to create an immersive space. This space is part gallery, part workspace and part retail concept store. Artists will be able to sell their work on site as well as online.

LISTEN IN to the chat, and get down to 180b Campbell Street, Surry Hills, for the public launch on Friday August 9.

This amazing seating is Floorness by Sarah Jameson, here at Object for next 3 months.

OMG amazing seating. It's Floorless by Sarah Jameson, here at Object for next 3 months.

Tonight I met Saara from Atelieri O.Haapala at Helsinki Design Week open studios, and she showed us her Neo-Victorian cabinet cards and photographs… You can find more at www.ohaapala.com

Hungry in Helsinki, had no luck finding food on the street. I should have read this first.

Biomimicry + architecture: ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion at the University of Stuttgart

Media_httpstaticdezee_cdfei

The project explores the architectural transfer of biological principles of the sea urchin’s plate skeleton morphology by means of novel computer-based design and simulation methods, along with computer-controlled manufacturing methods for its building implementation. A particular innovation consists in the possibility of effectively extending the recognized bionic principles and related performance to a range of different geometries through computational processes, which is demonstrated by the fact that the complex morphology of the pavilion could be built exclusively with extremely thin sheets of plywood (6.5 mm).
