25,000 Brown Paper Bags
Jeremy Barbour a new york-based architect of Tacklebox Architecture recently designed the interior of Owen, a boutique which offers emerging designer clothes. Owen is about to open in the meatpacking district of New York City. Responding to the nature of the industrial space, Jeremy uses approximately 25,000 brown paper bags on the surface of the continuous wall and ceiling plane. Arching overhead, the rows of stacked bags gives a sort of honeycomb pattern, that forms a partition, creating a warm atmosphere to shop.
Industrial details are still found in the store, an exposed brick wall, steel hang-bars as racks, which have been inset into the concrete floor. Accessories and jewelry are displayed on slab tables and within glass vitrine cases. This unique design is new and fresh and you better believe The Illustrators Stage will be making a stop into Owen just to see it for ourselves! Lets us know what you think too!
The MS Turanor PlanetSolar: “The First Solar Powered Boat To Travel Around The World.
Raphaël Domjan, a Swiss national, traveled for 19-months around the world on a excursion that seemed impossible. Crossing the Gulf Of Aden was the scariest part of the voyage considering that area is known for kidnapping, and hijacking.
Traveling 37,286 miles around the world using solar power only doesn’t seem bad at all right?
Life-Sized Lady Nutcracker by Jennifer Rubell
Jennifer Rubell, NYC artist, has developed a collection of eighteen pre-fabricated female mannequins which have been reinterpreted to become life-size nutcrackers. The barbie-like lady figures are positioned on their sides on a pedestal with both legs open. When the left leg is pulled down to meet the right, the hard shell of a nut placed between the legs is cracked open. Visitors can interact with each piece by placing a nut upon the inner thigh of the mannequin.
These interactive sculptures embody the two polar stereotypes of female power: the idealized, sexualized nude female form; and the too-powerful, nut-busting überwoman’.
I LOVE IT!!
