Oil Monkey: Crucifixion

Crucifixion is a coffee-table concept, in stainless steel and polycarbonate, that brings to my mind the perspex sculptures of the Russian constructivist artist, Naum Gabo.

The table is designed by Fuquan Junze, founder of Hong Kong based Oil Monkey, who tells me he is currently seeking a manufacturer for this product.

Airside x Think Tank

Limited edition Fred Deakin 7″ vinyl release of Trip Out the Rider, with beautiful packaging designed by Airside and made by Think Tank.

A clever combination of die-cut holes, hand screen-printing and foil embossing on the snugly fitting inner sleeve, gives the impression that there are several layers of card in the pack, with the centre hole of the record itself providing one of the layers.

I was stumped when it came to identifying the beautiful dining chairs in the above photo. It turns out they are Eames Plywood Group DCM (Dining Chair Metal) chairs. Looks like I don’t know my Eames as well as I should.
