Paul Rudolph: Rolling Armchair

Rolling Armchair, designed by architect Paul Rudolph in 1968, pays homage to Marcel Breuer’s iconic 1927 Wassily Chair, one of the earliest tubular steel chairs produced. Where Breuer uses leather as upholstery in the Wassily, in the Rolling Armchair, Rudolph uses Lucite.

C A R S O N

David Carson gets a lot of flak from some of the more anal retentive amongst the design community who believe layout should always hang tight on fibonacci proportioned grid.

Now I am a huge fan of the grid but believe there is also occasionally a place for a more organic and fluid approach to typography and graphic design and count myself amongst those who greatly admire Carson’s work. Vive la différence and embrace the madness, I say…!

I was therefore glad to hear of C A R S O N, a new magazine due to be launched in 2011, art directed and designed by the man himself with six issues planned to be published through the year.

Zarb Champagne

Zarb Champagne

Dutch brand agency THEY have commissioned a number of designers to design bottles for their own brand of champagne, Zarb (a French colloquialism meaning ‘bizarre’).

My favourites are the rocket launchpad by La Bolleur (top) and the magnum champagne ‘super-soaker’ by  Edhv (above).
