In the Industrial Design department at Pratt, they taught us how to spray thinned joint compound onto our mock-ups. It was the quickest way to get sandably-smooth paint-ready surfaces on tricky shapes. For the rest of society, joint compound is something you use to patch holes, seal seams and get

Since May, I've had the pleasure of researching and writing about great female designers for Core77's Designing Women series. With this biweekly column, our idea was to highlight the achievements of lesser-known and underappreciated female design pioneers—and also, along the way, show off a bunch of awesome and beautiful work

The proposed location for the Lowline Park is a one-acre site where the former Williamsburg Bridge Trolley Terminal used to be. It was first opened in 1908 but has been unused since 1948 when trolley service was discontinued. [Image courtesy of James Ramsey and Daniel Barasch] Under the streets of
Torggler's Evolution Safety FeatureRemember Klemens Torggler's crazy Stahltür and Evolution doors? We'd joked about them never being available in litigious America due to the inherent safety hazard—but it turns out Torggler has updated the Evolution with a way to ensure your fingers don't get pinched: For those who prefer to
More and more designers are opening studios in Los Angeles, but the city still offers relatively few opportunities to see their work in person. A welcome new venue, at least temporarily, is the downtown showroom Austere, normally dedicated to Scandinavian design but through February 14 hosting Site Specific: L.A., an

In 1957, architect Eero Saarinen completed his design for the Mid-Century Modern Miller House. Commissioned by the industrialist J. Irwin Miller and his wife Xenia, the house featured an exciting new interior design feature: A sunken conversation pit. Meant to be a gathering space where hosts and guests could

Disaster preppers are often thought of as DIY blue-collar folk, steadily stacking cans inside their self-modified underground shipping containers. But Robert Vicino, founder of the Vivos Group, is betting that there are plenty of moneyed families who also believe in impending global doom, are not interested in learning to build
When people are differing heights, you've got an ergonomics problem. At a movie theater in Copenhagen, I saw something bizarre (to my American eyes) stacked up in the corner: Adult booster seat cushions. Inevitably some Viking-tall Dane would sit in the fourth row, obscuring the view of those more height-challenged
Hidden away on a dimly lit shelf in the basement of UCLA's Art Library is a charming book of 1980s Japanese product design edited by Koichi Ando. Although I can't quite excuse the book's woefully inadequate representation of female designers (only two!), I am grateful that it introduced me to
Mark de la Vega has one of the more unlikely design success stories imaginable. In 2008, freshly laid off from a job at the retail-design firm Studio Sofield, de la Vega moved to Brooklyn with every intention of opening a taco shop. "I had a lot of experience [in restaurants],"
Fine leathers and live stitching presentations drew visitors to London's North-West, where Bill Amberg Studio showcased their latest projects in the Queen's Park Design District. The studio specializes in high-end architectural leather services, as well as bespoke interior work and signature accessories. Sweet with the unmistakable smell of leather, and
Here's a door with a rather unusual hinge design: Because this exact photo has been so passed around on social media with no attribution, I am sadly unable to determine whom the original designer, or even the fabricator, are. But it appears that the door came from Brazil, and poking
While there's certainly no shortage of reasons to be pessimistic about humanity and its future, I would like to take a moment to share a multifaceted glimmer of hope: Somewhere in this world, there exists a giant kaleidoscope that you can walk inside, basking in the glory of your own
Earlier this month, Red Dot organized the "Formosa Forms: Contemporary Tradition in Taiwanese Design" exhibit at Paris' Maison & Objet. But the design-award-conferring organization is apparently very displeased with their own museum in Taiwan's capital. "At the moment, the situation of the Red Dot Design Museum Taipei is by far
Lasermaze is an architectural installation formed from three miles of wool dyed with UV ink. The playful structure invites visitors to get lost within a unique surreal space as they journey towards the centre. The complex geometry of the form combined with the ethereal, semi-transparent nature of the walls adds
In the world of communication design, perhaps no word is less sexy than wayfinding, which inevitably conjures up images of dull-yet-necessary signage, maps and, well, even more signage. And yet anyone who has tried to navigate an unfamiliar airport, museum or public-transit system can attest to the power of a
Together with IKEA of Sweden and IKANO Bostad, Veryday has studied what is emotionally important when living in small spaces. As cities around the globe continue to grow at a fast pace, space becomes a luxury that most people can't afford. Along with denser urban areas come higher housing costs
Imagine you're an architect, or an industrial designer or an interior designer, and you're designing someone's kitchen right down to the cabinets. So you draw your plans up in your perfect little CAD world, where everything is level, plumb and square. Then you spec out quartz countertops, because the material
It's weird to think that fictional television shows not only have a cultural impact, but can also influence what objects people will buy. When Sons of Anarchy, a show about a rather violent gang of bikers that rode Harleys, was at the height of its popularity, it reportedly led to
Museum displays are typically meant to be seen and not touched, but a recent wave of exhibitions is upending those rules.
