Neverclear by Toni Hall

Neverclear is a classier, less clear version of Everclear. Neverclear is a grain alcohol which has a very strong alcohol content. I made this package to reflect the effects of alcohol after having a few glasses while still staying classy with clean typography. The bottle is a diamond shape, and when you turn the bottle back and forth the optical illusion changes as you see it through the glass. These optical illusions will only become more interesting as the party goes on.

Indie band the Shout Out Louds have released their latest single in a very limited edition 7-inch record that plays on ice. ‘Blue Ice’ is the first piece of music the group has released for the past three years and is the first single off the band’s upcoming, as-yet-untitled, full-length album. The unique frosty vinyl was created in collaboration with ad agency TBWA Stockholm, and through experimentation, was created using distilled water to avoid bubbles in the tracks. The records can be spun on a regular turntable and rapidly diminish in quality once the melting process begins, so a specialized silicone cast allowed for quick removal out of the freezer and instant tunes and be heard.

The song is quite nice too.

This clock runs on the energy of a lemon, which powers it for a week or longer.

This pedagogic project is a kind of shortcut intended to remind ourselves that nature, in spite of the various transformations to which we subject her, is still our direct energy source. 
The somewhat magical dimension of the operation is in fact simple electrolysis, like a conventional electric battery.

‘Eat & Play’ by industrial designer Rodrigo Caula from Vancouver, Canada, is a response to the idea of recreation as social reform. The iconic playground provides proof of how we use the space to create social interaction. The association with playgrounds provides a gathering place for children, as well as adults, making the space ideal for conversation and new friendships. With this project, he has given the communal eating space a transformation by turning the dining room into a playground. By removing the legs and suspending the surfaces, the tabletop and seats are turned into swings, giving new life to how we interact during eating hours.

Atheist Shoes - What seems to have started as a semi-goof, took off on reddit and then kickstarter, taking the prototype of the godless, Bauhaus-inspired shoe and making it a reality. Sure, the handmade, nice quality leather shoes look nice, but the concept is what is really appealing. From the atheist soles to the black hole logo (“an inviting void, an exquisite blank canvas, begging to be filled with something meaningful to you”), to the idea of donating 10% of their profits to secular charities, demonstrating that you don’t need god to be good. The best thing is their hilarious slogan: “Now atheists have soles too!”

Designer Finn Magee doesn’t make ordinary posters. Take a closer look and you can see this multi-functional posters, which you can plug in and are ready to go. The idea for this series came from an interest in advertising and getting a new desk lamp.

Setting it up on his desk, the lamp seemed to lend a productive atmosphere to the space. Out of this he wondered if the functional or at least the visual qualities of the lamp could reproduced with a flat image and that is how ‘Flat Light’ was born. ‘Flat Time’ and ‘Flat Sound’ continue this investigation into whether products can be dematerialised yet keep the effects they promise to provide. Trained as a product designer, Magee creates critical objects which question how we consume objects and ideas, always including a little humour and surprise. By the way: they are available for

The objective for this bathroom collection by Japanese Design Studio Nendo was to create a strong singular impression by assembling the various elements of a bathroom suite as though they were ‘all in the bath together’. The feeling of connection that comes from a bath with someone you don’t know at a hot spring or local public bath is an important part of Japanese culture. ‘Bissazza’ expresses this feeling through its design. The two key parts of the strategy are details that present the different elements as though they have been stored together in a box and elements that go together well when used in multiples. For example the mirror glass has been removed in different places to mimic the effect of pools of water. This emphasizes the impression that the mirror resides in a frame. The wall clock can be lined up in multiples, creating the visual effect of horizontal continuity.
