‘Isorinths’, designed by Damola Rufai, are a collection of isometric patterns that draw from the hustle and bustle of Lagos, Nigeria. their chaotic, colorful, and vibrant nature grows from a place where the journey from A to B is rarely a straight line. Stylistic influences come from a range of places, including african wax prints, south beach pastels, and rufai’s personal architectural background. Each variation of the series is created digitally, and printed on 100% cotton fabric. http://damolarufai.com/

F A S H I O N : The Very Black Project

December 5, 2015

black
The Very Black Project isn’t merely a fashion brand, but a consciousness movement. Established in 2014 in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, TVBP it’s the brainchild of late night “Kitchen talks” reflecting the very contemporary and, at times, very wounding experiences of artist/cancer survivor André  D. Singleton  and  Art Director Justin Fulton, WHO both grew up very black and very gay in America. This project’s aim is to encourage relatable dialogue around the vast experiences of ALL people who have ever felt alienated due to race, sexuality, Gender, physical appearance or disability with a focus on blackness. They use the body as a vehicle for solidarity while asserting a very important social commentary. At its core they believe that to be #VERYBLACK is to be unapologetically proud of who you are in a world that furtively teaches us to hide from our stories and our importance.

Pulling inspiration from the Empire’s black-suited pilots, the Imperial Pilot collection features custom hour and minute hands inspired by the Imperial Pilot’s helmet ventilation system and subtly placed Imperial logos. It’s the intricacies that you may not notice at first glance, but can’t be ignored. The collection is inspiring as Nixon pay attention to details. It’s the design details on the bezel and pushers, dials and bands, the color applications and storytelling references that bring to life the unique characteristics only found in the STAR WARS | Nixon Collection.

D E S I G N : Three Bamboo and Carbon Fiber Bikes

October 18, 2015

bcb-bicycle-designboom03

The ‘Bamboo and Carbon Fiber’ bicycles by the Spanish company, bambu campos bikes, form a collection of models: fixed, single speed and urban, that are completely customizable. Choices such as different colors, geometry and sizes can all be chosen and then added to the hand-crafted two-wheeler. The frame which has a commemorative, unique serial number, utilizes the natural lightness and vibration-dampening characteristics of bamboo. The sustainable wood is joined together using carbon fiber – opposed to the common practice of using aluminum – in order to ensure the structure is even more lightweight and stiff.
