Hank bought a bus

Hank Butitta was very close to his master thesis for architecture and sick of theoretical stuff, so he bought a school bus and converted it to a mobile home. After the presentation was a full success, he decided to field test the interior by driving the bus for about 5000 miles trough the states. Great Project and Inspiration of the day/week.

Natic Marine – Marine Uniform by Tadanori Domyo

You have to see and to feel the collection of Natic Marine designed by Tadanori Domyo. So rich in details and crafted so well. I had the chance to take some detail images of his naval/maritime influenced designs. Probably the most fascinating pieces was an oxford style shirt with southern crosses, mermaids and anchors woven into the fabric. But as with most of the Japanese Brands it is so hard to find them over here in Europe, but I really hope that their performance in Berlin @ the Bread & Butter June 2013 has payed of and we will see their garments being distributed here as well.

EDIT!
Takao Tsubouchi from Jayproject just contacted me, he is distributing Natic and other Japanese premiums brands and is located in Milano (Italy), so he is your contact over here.

Nintendo Gameboy – Tetris:
Who do not remember the tune of Tetris? How often did you battle against someone and a nasty smile crossed your face when “bam” 4 lines went so your opponent (sister, brother, friend …). Do you still know the name of the inventor, programmer, designer of Tetris ? It was Alexey Pazhitnov / Alexy Pajitnov it was shown on every start of the game. The Gameboy is nearly 25 years old, the batteries still work and the gameboy and the game as well. Just the highscore sucked.

Timber Trivet by Adam Goodrum:
A fine example of functional design I came across in the museum shop at the Lousiana museum in Denmark. The timber trivets are used to protect the table from hot saucepans and dishes in a decorative way.

The design was made by Adam Goodrum and distributed by Normann Copenhagen.

Brooks leather saddles @ Copenhagen:
Brooks leather bicycle saddles
are an investment for a lifetime. They will mold to the owners shape and are nearly indestructible, that is what makes them so popular. If you see them on a bike, they tell you that it´s owner got style and understood their true value . So I was really fascinated to see that in Copenhagen they were such a common view. With so many cycling “Freaks” in this city with a natural sense for good design and well made products, it made total sense.

I was drawn more and more to take images from the various types I saw on the streets. Their different colors, leather structure and worn patterns. Some people were really puzzled to figure out what image I took with my camera. See the result of just some of the images I took above, probably I will make a large printout as a collage.

Just found a great site devoted to the Copenhagen bicycle culture -> Copenhagenize
