She indulged in sewing lessons and endured charm school until she found wood shop class and fit right in. After years as a shop teacher, a motorcycle accident catalyzed the launch of her namesake brand. Shortly thereafter she also founded Address, an annual exhibit of designer / makers in her hometown of Vancouver, which dovetails nicely with another one of her talents: throwing a good party.

Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound Edge Sonically Circular Design Reveals a Delightful Surprise

                                The <a href="https://www.bang-olufsen.com/en/beosound-edge"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Beosound Edge</a> by Bang &amp; Olufsen is a conundrum, a newly unveiled wireless audio speaker realized as a statement of minimalism, yet also unapologetically the sort of bold statement piece that elicits the curious to ask, &#8220;what is that?&#8221;

Designed to be placed onto the floor or wall-mounted as above, the speaker is discreetly outfitted with proximity sensors engineered to turn on the speaker’s aluminum surface touch interface. A close inspection reveals microscopic holes created with lasers for this touch controls.

Designer Michael Anastassiades – whose portfolio for his eponymous London-based studio reveals a profound curiosity for exploring the spare long note of minimalist expression – is responsible for this latest audio design for the luxe Danish heritage brand. Reimagining the wireless speaker as a centerpiece object lends itself to complication, but here Anastassiades distills the speaker to its simplest form – a circle. The typical trappings of an electronic audio device

Always creative, he meandered through school, PR, and PA jobs before landing a role on a TV show, starting a blog, and building up his social media following. He’s been through some ups and downs, but now he’s got a new book out and a bright outlook. Listen:

In high school, a documentary on Frank Lloyd Wright piqued his interest and set him on course to architecture school. Within a decade, he was building a large public project in Berlin while struggling to argue in German. Now, he’s creating interactive and mind-bending environments that shift perspectives. Listen:

Made to order using oak and Valchromat (a wood moisture resistant wood fiber panel engineered for higher durability than traditional MDF and individually impregnated fibers using organic dyes for consistent color throughout its thickness), the table’s two-tone design highlights its two most distinguishing features: the sliding tambour door designed to hideaway an amplifier and any cords and cables out of sight, and two rows of storage + display affording space for up to 200 LPs and 45s to comb through when the mood for music strikes. Herdal’s affinity for vinyl extends to two additional designs, the 30-record Vinyl Stand and the “little brother”

All that input served to make him feel at home anywhere in the world and yet, in a quasi-rebellious sort of way, instilled in him the desire to create something original. His childhood was both blessed by love and privilege and cursed by bullying and attempts to invalidate his creativity—a recipe for gratitude, perspective, and turbo drive to disprove the naysayers.

The Sonos Beam is a Smaller and Smarter Soundbar

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/sonos-beam-minimalist-smarter-soundbar/sonos_beam_15/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Sonos_Beam_15-810x552.jpg" alt="The Sonos Beam is a Smaller and Smarter Soundbar" /></a>
                                It was about a year ago today San Francisco-based Sonos released the <a href="https://design-milk.com/sonos-playbase/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">PLAYBASE</a>, a uniquely shaped home entertainment speaker offering plug-and-play simplicity delivering rich, dynamic sound. The <a href="https://www.sonos.com/en-us/shop/beam.html" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Sonos Beam</a> retains the minimalist aesthetics of the former design, adding Alexa smart-speaker functionality, Airplay 2 support, and one remote control integration, but in a significantly reduced compact design ideal for smaller quarters.

The Beam’s compact size allows it to fit easily on a credenzas or slipped under a wall-mounted television.

Compared to the lengths of Sonos’ other existing home theater offerings – the Playbar (35.4 inches) and the Sonos Playbase (28.3 inches) – the Beam’s abbreviated dimensions of 25.625 x 3.94 x 2.70 inches offers a space saving presence that will undoubtedly deliver a performance upgrade to any built-in television speaker, though at a compromise in output and separation compared to its larger siblings. Still, Sonos engineers have

Using beech wood from trees grown in the Japanese prefecture of Aomori, the artisan company Bunaco specializes in hand coiling 1mm thin and 1cm-wide ribbon strips of wood into subtle forms so tight the resulting forms are capable of holding water without leaking (note: the technique is old, but not ancient, originally developed in 1956). Bunaco primarily uses the technique to make bowls, lampshades, and other wood housewares. In this unique instance they’ve collaborated with Oki Sato and his Japanese studio Nendo to take advantage of the acoustic properties of beech wood to “warm” up both audio performance and the aesthetic presence of a Bluetooth equipped wireless omnidirectional speaker.

The perception whether the Bunaco speaker is unfurling or coming

                                It&#8217;s wholly understandable if you mistook the <a href="http://pr01.laboiteconcept.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Native Union x La Boite Concept PR / 01</a> Bluetooth speaker for a vintage stereo speaker that lost its secondary partner. From all appearances, its wood cabinetry and metal trim hint of a time when &#8220;hi-fidelity&#8221; systems aspired to look as fine as they sound – it&#8217;s a speaker designed not to only look the part of audiophile equipment from decades ago, but engineered to sound like one too.
The exterior design is only one half of the PR / 01 story – the rest resides hidden away within. Inside the classic wood and aluminum cabinetry the French acoustics specialist at La Boite reutilized a patent originally developed by the company’s Cagniard family back in the 1976; it required seven years to turn intent to reality. Adapted to support new digital technologies of today, the Active Pression Reflex utilizes two speakers housed within a multi-amplified

He grew up in Munich, Germany drawing machines and vehicles on any paper available, and then studied industrial and automobile design in school. Soon after graduation, he landed a job with BMW Group and has been there ever since. Now, as the head of MINI Design, he’s dedicated to designing for innovation and emotion. This is a long-term love affair, indeed.
