Some beautiful work by London-based designer, Joe Stephenson. The system was designed to promote and highlight the abundant “flavors” of the Fedrigoni specialty paper showroom. With Gelato as the teaser, guests could enjoy a cool treat while collecting paper samples and getting familiar with the showroom.
I love the simplicity of the work and the playful connection between the gelato flavors and the delicious paper colors. Yumm indeed!

american firm choi + shine architects recently received the 2010 boston society of architects
award for unbuilt architecture for their project 'the land of giants', which they originally
designed for the icelandic high voltage electrical pylon competition back in 2008.
making only minor alterations to well established steel-framed pylon
design, the architects
created a series of towers that are powerful, solemn
and variable. these iconic pylon-figures

the pylon-figures can be configured to respond to their environment
with appropriate gestures.
as the carried electrical lines ascend a
hill, the pylon-figures change posture, imitating a climbing

the pylon-figures can also be arranged to create a sense of place
through deliberate expression.
subtle alterations in the hands and head
combined with repositioning of the main body parts in

z-axis, allow for a rich variety of expressions. the pylon-figures can
be placed in pairs,
walking in the same direction or opposite
directions, glancing at each other as they pass by
respectively, head bowed at a town.
the various configurations of the pylons
despite the large number of possible forms, each pylon-figure is made
from the same major
assembled parts (torso, fore arm, upper leg, hand
etc.) and uses a library of pre-assembled
joints between these parts to
create the pylon-figures’ appearance. this design allows for many
variations in form and height while the pylon-figures’ cost is kept low
through identical production,
simple assembly and construction.
