By now you've surely seen the Spike-Jonze-directed video for Apple's HomePod, where a beleaguered NYC office drone's apartment is magically extruded into a colorful wonderland. You may have spotted something odd around the 1:10 mark: That something odd is that you can clearly see, when the table begins to
adidas recently unveiled a new silhouette called Deerupt, and if you ever had doubts social media could play a significant role in the design process, it's time to think again. If you religiously follow the sneaker world on Instagram, you've probably noticed an overload of images that look almost
Of all the rousing successes we've seen on Kickstarter, and we've seen quite a few, this one has taken us most by surprise. It's no multi-tool, no techno-object, no magical transportation device; instead it's a striking and all-natural visual feast by Moreno Monti and Matteo Tranchellini, two photographers who hail
In order to push forward in our careers, we often need to expose ourselves to the cold, hard truth and push past common excuses that do nothing but keep our development stagnant. Too often we settle for general career advice that beats around the bush because a) honest advice is
Whether you're taking stills or shooting video, in order to get that "liquid light" effect on a smooth surface you need a diffused light source. You could run out and drop several hundred dollars or more on an LED softbox, but here industrial designer Eric Strebel shows you how he
I generally keep my phone within a 15ft radius of my body at all times, and I don't think I'm the only one. When you think about it, though, smartphone mounts haven't exactly been updated to consider the wide variety of tasks we now rely on our phones for. The
"Everything old is new again," or so goes the idiom. The folks at Eastman Chemical Co. apparently agree, as they have dipped back into the firm's 80-year-old portfolio of cellulose ester materials technology to come up with a "new" fiber that's now finding use in a range of intimate apparel and other trendy clothing.
Of all the Oscar winners, we're naturally most interested in the one with the background in design. Canadian production designer Paul Austerberry, who holds a degree in architecture from Carleton University, took home Best Production Design for his work on Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water." Austerberry was joined
The life of a long-haul trucker can be tough, even when they're not behind the wheel. When it's time to get some shuteye in the truck's cab, some of them have a scant 36" behind the seats in which to stuff a twin mattress, and there's barely enough room to turn around back there, let alone get dressed and undressed. And for the trucker who brings their spouse on the road—yes, husband-and-wife trucker teams exist—it's simply not enough space for two people to live out of.

So Insider has launched a show called "Bonkers Closets" where rich people show off their closets, which are larger than some of our apartments. This socialite from Singapore has "designed" a fingerprint-locked closet system based on filing cabinets to hold all of her ball gowns. Then they move on to
As a mid-winter beacon of hope for city commuters and outdoor enthusiasts, Ministry of Supply recently launched the Mercury Intelligent Heated Jacket. There are a few other battery-powered thermal jackets on the market, but Mercury's machine learning capabilities make it kind of like wrapping yourself in a chic heated blanket
More than a few viewers have been puzzled by Team U.S.A.'s speedskating outfits. They seem to be designed purely to draw one's eye towards their junk: The uniforms were designed by Under Armour, and InStyle asked them about the crotch bling. Here's UA's statement: "The contrasting material in
Most of we men have no idea what it feels like to live with the persistent weight of breasts on the front of our torsos. And I couldn't imagine having to play tennis with, say, a fanny pack strapped across my chest. To illustrate what this weight is like, Japanese
To an Olympian, it must feel like a version of Freshman Orientation where everyone is super physically-fit: For roughly two weeks they'll stay in a purpose-built dorm-like Olympic Village, meeting (and frequently hooking up with) fellow athletes from around the world. Entertainment and training facilities are provided; there are gyms,
It's so cold in PyeongChang that Italy reportedly advised their Olympic team "to skip the entertainment portion of the ceremony" due to the subzero temperatures. It would not be like the Italians to take their fashion cues from us Americans, but perhaps in this case they ought have; Team USA
I'm typically not a fan of when people take someone else's videos and make a supercut from the clips, but at least they credited the guy here and are showing off his excellent work. Samuel Mamias is a math teacher in France. And I don't know how he's done this
Unveiled last night, here's a look at Nike's latest additions to their Mercurial line—the Mercurial Superfly and the Mercurial Vapor 360. There are two main design details to note here, the first being the Flyknit innovation that allows the full boot to be wrapped in the material. Nike explains this
Beehives are typically comprised of parallel layers of honeycombs, like an office building filled with cubicles. But in Australia, a bee species known as Tetragonula carbonaria, a/k/a sugarbag bees, build their hives in a single-layer spiral, like they're imitating the Guggenheim. Why do they build them this way? National Geographic
For this year's Core77 Design Awards, we're conducting in-depth interviews with each of our jury captains to get in a glimpse into their creative minds and to hear more about what they'll be looking for in this year's awards submissions. Our first interview is with 2018 Built Environment Jury
Before today, the closest I had gotten to associating the NYC Subway with appetizing food was Pizza Rat and that time my friend told me she saw a man eating plastic on the E train. I'm happy to see the French have a more refined experience on their Paris Métro,
Yesterday, Nike announced the Epic React Flyknit Runner, the first running shoe that incorporates Nike React, a responsive foam that Nike chemists, designers and engineers developed back in 2017: The runner boasts a single-piece Flyknit upper with a more technical midsole in contrast. Nike React is much softer than

There are plenty of ways to store sex toys without using products specifically designed for that purpose. But there are a number of interesting design features on the products that are designed for organizing sex toys. The Joyboxx has a removable tray which can serve as a "bedside coaster for your sex toys," as Babeland puts it. It's easy to clean; it can even be put in the dishwasher.
Nike just announced a 10-pair sneaker collection completely designed by 14 female Nike designers, all working on either Nike's color and materials team or sneaker design team. Drawing inspiration from two of Nike's most iconic sneaker silhouettes—the Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1—the designers were put to work creating
One of Frank Lloyd Wright's final projects was the Lockridge Medical Clinic in Montana, a building he designed so late into his life that its construction was completed just after his death. Two years ago the building was purchased by Mick Ruis, a multimillionaire horse trainer and real estate developer.
This is nuts, and at first a little jarring to watch because it moves so quickly, but ultimately worth it. YouTube channel My Self Reliance lives up to its name as the gent behind it puts up an entire log cabin, then finishes it both inside and out, his damn
In the market for a new home for his family some years ago, industrial designer Duncan Jackson purchased what you might call a fixer-upper: Martello Tower Y, a massive Napoleonic-era circular fortification situated on the cost of Suffolk. England began building these Martello towers all along their coast in
The Present /&/ Correct blog has somehow got their hands on, and posted tons of photos of, vintage Soviet control rooms from "Power stations, control towers etc. Posted mainly for aesthetic reasons." Despite some detail differences there is certainly a consistency of aesthetic that is almost disturbing in its order:
This morning, Reebok announced a collaboration with design studio Odd Matter on an athletic seating collection made from their woven performance textile, Flexweave, which, "boasts an open figure-8 construction that interlocks unlimited strands of fibers to create a single surface construction that is as strong as it is light." Here's a look at the first chair to come out of the collection:
They say these are for picnics and the beach, but we think they're idea for the office. The PortoVino Crossbody Bag is a handsome leather number--that can be filled with booze and dispensed directly from a tap hidden in the side. It comes with a BPA-free plastic pouch that you
As designers we're supposed to be good with geometry, so let's see if you can figure this out. From puzzle designer Jin-hoo Ahn comes this three-piece one called "Bitten Biscuits," which won a Jury Honorable Mention at the IPP Design Competition (International Puzzle Party) in Kyoto, Japan in 2016: The
