Its a large flap moving slowly up and down, revealing a long strip of swarovski crystals which are illuminated from behind by led lights. the installation is called ‘repose’ and belongs to the autumn/winter collection 2006.

london-based designer tom price has designed the panels on the ground floor level of metropolitan works, creative Industries center. It is a specially commissioned frieze that has been laser cut out of the panels to give the structure a sense of movement and life.
I found a case of a henk suitcase in the showroom of the factory and couldn’t believe that $20,000 are standing in front of me. yes, $20,000!! a dutch real estate magnate named henk worked together with frog design to create a strong, agile suitcase for the elite travelers. It is crafted of 500 component parts and its shell is made of super lightweight carbon fiber.
I mean, I am traveling a lot but I prefer to buy a car instead of a suitcase that is worth $20,000.
I can highly recommend this movie about the underside of our production and consumption patterns. annie leonard is guiding through the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues in a way that possibly make you change the way you look at all the stuff in your life.
last friday I attended at the 2nd pecha kucha night at the ainsi in maastricht, netherlands.
pecha kucha forces a presenter to show 20 images for 20 seconds a piece, for a total time of 6 minutes, 40 seconds. this form of presentation was invented in japan in 2003 by tokyo based architects astrid klein and mark dytham, klein dyham.
I am sure everybody of us know some creatives that tend to talk to much and too long about their ideas. anyway, I think I am going to participate at the next pecha kucha maastricht on saturday, 20th june 2009. lalala
