Kinetic Sculpture - BMW Museum

Kinetic Sculpture - BMW Museum

Kinetic Sculpture at the BMW Museum in Munich, by ART+COM, is an artistic visualisation of the process of form-finding in art and design.

Kinetic Sculpture - BMW Museum

The work consists of 714 metal spheres, hanging from thin steel wires attached to individually-controlled stepper motors covering an area of six square meters and animated in a seven minute long mechatronic narrative — in the beginning, moving chaotically, then evolving to several competing forms that eventually resolve to the finished object.

Shrub tables

Shrub is a collection of steel and aluminium tables with branched legs, designed by Shanghai based Zhili Liu for Belgian manufacturer Quinze & Milan.

Shrub tables

The six milimetre-thick powder coated aluminium tops are screwed to a delicate network of steel ‘branches’, which together form the tables’ legs. The sunken screw heads are left exposed to form decorative elements in the tables’ surfaces.

Mau

Mau Conceptual Clothing has reinterpeted classic wardrobe staples in a feather-weight, high-performance, non-woven material called Tyvek®, for a collection of garments they call ‘post-industrial folk wear’. Consisting of 25% recycled content and in itself recyclable, Tyvek® offers both water resistance and breathability and softens with every wash and wear to eventually become supple like leather.

In addition to reversible dresses and unisex coats combining artisanal patternmaking with art-infused details, the range includes accessories such as tote bags and barrel bags.

DBA Pen 98% Biodegradable Pen

DBA Pen 98% Biodegradable Pen

The DBA Pen is the only 98% biodegradable pen in the world and the only pen to use ink composed of simple, pronounceable ingredients.

Produced at a wind-powered facility in the United States, this compost-able pen was designed as a responsible alternative to the wasteful and often toxic pens we use almost every day. And with its straight forward design and rollerball tip, the DBA Pen looks as good as it writes.

DBA is a New York based company founded in 2008 with the goal of developing unique products that combine aesthetic strength, technical innovation, and ecologically effective principles.
