                                Oxygen and light applied onto liquid polymer. That&#8217;s the formula <a href=""  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Adidas</a> is using to manufacture their latest generation of footwear, the <a href=""  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">ALPHAEDGE 4D</a>. Digital Light Synthesis was developed with <a href="" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Carbon</a> to allow the footwear makers to tailor midsole structure for cushioning, stability, and comfort specific to the weight and activity of its wearer. Now Amsterdam’s <a href="" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Studio Hagel</a> is using the 3D-printed midsoles and compositing a hybrid shoe as componetry to reconstruct their own unique hi-top reinterpretation.
From Andy Barr, Adidas’s global category director for running:
With AlphaEdge 4D our goal is to enhance the athlete’s preparation for their sport. Running is the foundation of every athlete’s training and at adidas we understand that each athlete exhibits different movement patterns based on their sport, stature and gender.
The original goals of the ALPHAEDGE 4D as stated above – available domestically in the US since February – may have been motivated in

Symbol Audio Modern Record Player Places Sound on a Pedestal

                                If one was to describe New York Hudson Valley based design studio, <a href=""  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Symbol Audio&#8217;s</a> body of work, it would be philosophically a recognition of yesterday executed technologically and aesthetically with the solutions of today. <a href="" data-wpel-link="internal">Their designs</a> nod back to a time when audio systems married componetry with a decor-friendly aesthetic, equipped with features serving how we listen to music in the digital era. Ironically enough, this includes the popular resurgence of vinyl. Thus, their newly revealed Modern Record Player is an audiophile record player paired with wi-fi connectivity and storage solutions designed to hide away digital accessories.
A 2018 NYCxDESIGN Awards Finalist, the Modern Record Player is sure to remind design-versed minds of Dieter Rams’ iconic Braun SK55, especially in its all-white iteration. Sharing a vented speaker front design with controls filtered of excess ornamentation, Symbol Audio’s modern day version houses a custom-built class AB amplifier powering custom-engineered speakers

                                As Jeff Bezos famously said, “Your brand is what people say about you when you&#8217;re not in the room.” It’s real, it’s authentic, it’s your essence – and it’s difficult to fake. Building your personal brand is more than having a well-designed logo and more than just getting your name out there, it’s also ensuring that every one of your messages and actions works toward growing your influence by controlling the narrative.

Nervous System Launches Porifera 3D Printed Ceramic Jewelry with Formlabs

                                                <a href="" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="" alt="Nervous System Launches Porifera 3D Printed Ceramic Jewelry with Formlabs" /></a>
                                <a href=""  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Nervous System</a> is no stranger to <a href=""  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">3D printed jewelry</a> as they&#8217;ve been creating it since 2009, but their latest collection, <a href=""  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Porifera</a>, explores a new medium: a 3D printed ceramic resin. The collection is two years in the making as they experimented with different materials in collaboration with <a href=""  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Formlabs</a>. The partnership brings forth necklaces, earrings, and bracelets with shapes inspired by deep sea glass sponges. The complex forms could never have been made without new technologies that allow those complex forms to be created.
Nervous System developed custom software to create the designs and because of their changing volumes and densities, the pieces can only be produced via 3D printing. The new ceramic material is made by Formlabs and once each piece is 3D printed, it’s hand-sanded, glazed, and fired twice in a kiln up to 2340F to get that perfect shiny finish. If ceramic isn’t your thing, the collection

Native Union x La Boite PR/01 Speaker Conceals Cords and History

                                                <a href="" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="" alt="Native Union x La Boite PR/01 Speaker Conceals Cords and History" /></a>
                                It&#8217;s wholly understandable if you mistook the <a href="" 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

Originally from Taiwan, as a child Ti moved with her family to the U.S. and grew up feeling out of place in small-town Georgia. Loneliness had its upside though; less friends, more creative time! An independent thinker and brave warrior for female empowerment, she’s on a mission to eradicate shame and guilt, and believes all women should own their pleasure. Amen, sister!
