Love these illustrated charts from Pop Chart Lab. Each poster is signed and numbered by the artists and printed on archival stock. Alphabet of Typography… handy for a graphic designer.
I so need The Various Varieties of Fruits because of … reasons. Strong reasons. . Over 300 fruits illustrated, and yes there’s a durian somewhere.
The Various Varieties of Vegetables features over 400 crops. From “root veg like potatoes and the prairie turnip to lesser-known verified veggies like courgette flowers and the ghostbuster eggplant”.
The Cartography of Kitchenware.
Illustrious Omnibus of Superpowers #2 lists the special powers of over 300 heroes, anti-heroes, villains, and beasts.
The Flux chair is an award-winning chair crafted from sustainable polypropylene. Out of the box, it looks like a giant envelope (shown below, mounted). With the help of a few nifty scores and cuts, this unassuming piece of plastic transforms into a designer chair. At 89 euros a pop, it’s not the cheapest folding chair on the market, but this one’s really portable and its origami- inspired design makes for a good conversation topic. Plus don’t you just the space-saving design? Each wall mount can carry up to 6 chairs.
Flux chair comes in a range of colors. The cushion is sold separately. They also have a range for kids called Flux Junior.
It looks like something that can be made in an arts & craft class but it is actually a working radio. Inspired by transistor radios of the 60s, this no frills receiver is simply constructed out of recycled cardboard housing made from more than 25% post-consumer waste, a speaker and a radio circuitry. Not even glue is used.
Called the Environmentally Sound radio and created by North Ireland designer Chris McNicholl, this world’s first made with cardboard radio is designed to be sold in flat-pack form and can be easily assembled by the user. It is hoped that the user will choose to recycle the material at the end of its product life, serving one of its primary purpose as an eco-friendly product.
This device can also be used as a speaker for iPhones, other smart phones or any device that is capable of ouputting audio using 35mm audio jack.
Environmentally Sound Cardboard Radio available at Amazon.com
