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

‘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.
