the ‘cybershot tx55’ camera by sony

the world’s thinnest antishake-enabled camera, the ‘sony cybershot tx55‘ packs new imaging technology
that permits the capturing of two times the level of optical zoom, as well as 3D images and 1080i full HD video.
the device’s exmor 16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor is claimed to significantly reduce image noise even in low light levels.

the camera features ‘by pixel super resolution’ technology, which allegedly doubles the camera’s virtual zoom
to 10x at maximum resolution. this technology is also the foundation for the ability of the ‘tx55’ to capture
12-megapixel still photos without interrupting the shooting of full HD video, in contrast to the 3-megapixel
size ordinarily possible for still images taken during video filming with other recent cameras in the cybershot line.

the video resolution of the device has also increased, to 1080i full HD (AVCHD) video at 60fps.

a high-speed autofocus locks onto subjects in 0.1 seconds, while sony’s built-in optical ‘steadyshot’ image stabilization
combines both optical and software digital image optimizationto correct for blur on stills and videos alike.

shanghai-based practice KUU (kok-meng tan, satoko saeki) has sent us images of their most
recent project ‘minus k house’, a private dwelling adjacent to the client’s slipper factory in nanhui, china.
composed of two components – a weekend house and a residence for the worker – the design is
a collection of 3m by 3m volumes that connect to one another to result in a flowing and porous
circulation within.

We all know alkaline batteries are really bad for the environment if you don’t dispose of them properly. The right thing to do is send them to special recycling centers but hundreds of tons end up in landfills where their toxic innards seep into the earth. Perhaps a good solution is the Energy Seed, an LED lamp post powered by trashed alkaline batteries.

The idea is to encourage people to throw their batteries away into the Energy Seed. There’s a slot for nearly every size battery. The unit combines any left over juice from all the batteries to power a super efficient LED ring.

Of course once the bins are full, we’re left with the same original problem. Somebody has to collect all those spent batteries and recycle them.

Designer: Sungwoo Park & Sunhee Kim

dutch practice seARCH has created ‘synagogue LJG’, a synagogue for the progressive jewish congregation in amsterdam.
riddled with symbolism of the jewish faith, the neutral rectilinear volume generates a simplistic outwards aesthetic which
conceals the building’s complex narrative and inverted sense of spatiality. drawing from both traditional and modern concepts,
the building seeks to create an environment that abstractly emulates the ideals and beliefs at the center of judaism.

‘towards a poetic morphology’, a temporary installation by the europe-based artist network the cloud collective,
fills a small room with a landscape of letters, together forming robert walser’s poem ‘oppressive light’.

the piece was installed at la fabrique, a former textile printing factory, for the 22nd international poster and graphic design festival
of chaumont
 in france. in the work, a small opening pathway invites visitors to explore the letters and forms, in a windowed room
whose ambiance constantly changes with the sunlight and weather outdoors:

this arrangement in space– strongly affected by sunlight, time and weather– allows the text to slowly detach itself
from its intrinsic meaning and to let form, typography and composition take over. the snowy landscape becomes malleable,
thus creating a multitude of meanings for the observer.

in a collaboration that started more than a year ago, portuguese cork manufacturing company amorim,
approached experimentadesign, whose flagship venture is the EXD biennale in lisbon, to develop a project by selecting
designers to bridge the gap between the raw natural material and user, by creating objects for everyday use.
experimentadesign chose ten portuguese and international designers and studios based on their creative processes,
paying close attention to their functionality and relevance, with an understanding of user dynamics.

entitled materia*, the result is a collection of objects that investigate the potential of cork, emphasizing its versatility,
first presented to the public on the occasion of milan design week 2011.

portuguese designer fernando brizio has developed ‘furo’ and ‘senta’ for the collection, both of which explore the idea
of a main cork centrepiece whose purpose and function is enhanced through the use of ‘legs’.

designboom was recently in paris where we had the opportunity to pre-view matali crasset’s HI MATIC hotel,
the most recent of her on-going collaboration with patrick elouarghi and philippe chatelet.
located in the young, creative district of rue charonne, where design, fashion, bookshops and organic restaurants rein,
the design of the urban eco-lodging facility seeks to establish a new dialogue between itself, the visitors and the neighborhood.

100% internet based, the hotel is void of all traditional concierge and staff members. a unique code provided at the time of reservation
gives access to the building and to computers where visitors check in, pay and receive their room key, all on their own.

the aim was to keep the hotel fuss free and simple. emphasizing this concept and approach further are vending machines –
located in the lobby and basement – where organic food, books, music and playful objects can be purchased 24 hours a day.

the new puma house tokyo, located in the japanese city’s aoyama design district combines a press room
and event space into one open area. the interior design has been executed by japanese design studio nendo
who has made staircases a main structural theme throughout. within, these architectural elements are installed
around the existing features of the multipurpose area which is used for events, exhibitions, fittings, media events,
product launches etc. their use is not only for the purpose of climbing, but they also function as display areas
for puma sneakers.

the overall effect of seeing a labyrinth of staircases reminds us that we need to continuously exercise our bodies daily.
visually it also brings us back to puma’s relationship to sports and athletics. the placement of the staircases provide
a sense of movement throughout the interior, enabling a three-dimensional product display that fully uses its environment.
