Leica à la carte

A Leica camera is built to last and over time the marks, dents and scratches it accumulates will distinguish your Leica from any other. But it is possible to start the personalisation process before you’ve even held the camera.

With Leica à la carte you can specify over 4000 different technical and styling nuances to create your own unique Leica M7 or Leica MP camera.

Chau Har Lee

Shoe designer, Chau Har Lee, combines traditional shoe making techniques with new technologies. Thinking three-dimensionally she uses rapid-prototyping and laser cutting to create architectural structures using materials like steel, acrylic and wood to contrast with softer, stretched and moulded leather.

The example shown here reminds me of the perspex sculptures of Naum Gabo.

REVO Prismatic Lantern

Love this superb REVO prismatic lantern from purveyors of vintage lighting, Skinflint Design.

The lantern carries the cast makers mark on it’s polished aluminium body and features the original internal prismatic refractor within an external glass envelope. Circa 1950, this would make a fantastic hallway light.

Contortionist folding bike

The Contortionist is a sleek folding bike with pivots in its aluminium frame and a lockable universal joint in the front fork, enabling it to roll up to an ultra-compact size that fits within the width of its 26 inch wheels.

Contortionist folding bike

The designer, Royal College of Art student, Dominic Hargreaves decided to eschew messy chains for this bike and opted instead for an internal hydraulic system that uses oil pumped through tubes in the frame to spin the back wheel.

You can watch a video of the bicycle in action, here.

Oscar Diaz - RGB Vases

The RGB Vases of Oscar Diaz work as a three dimensional pixel where the RGB colours overlap to create a specific colour which appears only once the vases are nested.

Oscar Diaz - RGB Vases

A computer is used to calculate the exact amount of pigment that each vase must have in order to achieve the desired colour — in this case purple (P242). When the three vases are nested, the light passes through and mixes the three colours so that the purple becomes evident.

The RGB vases will be exhibited as part of Eyes on Spanish Design, an exhibition about emerging Spanish designers, organised by the ICEX together with the DDI, which will take place at 100% Design during the London Design Festival next September.
