A new ‘intelligent turntable’ that allows record collectors to play vinyl directly from their smartphone is currently in the works. It promises music fans, ‘the intimacy of vinyl with modern day convenience’ and it ‘reads vinyl with a stylus, connects to bluetooth and wi-fi, and is controlled by your smartphone’. Designed by Yves Béhar, the sculptural-spinning object is capturing peoples’ imaginations with its unorthodox playing style — rather than the record traditionally turning on a platter, the technology literally puts a spin on vinyl.

The first-ever Pantone color of the year experience has been brought to life in the heart of London by Airbnb. The two brands have joined forces to create the ‘outside in’ house in Clerkenwell, immersing guests in a universe of ‘greenery‘. The bookable apartment features a woodland reception area, an indoor greenhouse that doubles as a dining room, a garden bedroom with mown lawn, a tented nook for children, an herb garden kitchen, and botanical life interspersed throughout.

While the New York city landscape is a seemingly endless sprawl of sights and spectacles, Brooklyn-based photographer Franck Bohbot hones in on specific facets of urban life. For the series ‘Light on – The color of the night’, Bohbot forms a sentimental study of storefronts through a series of expressive and cinematic architectural ‘portraits’. Shot over the course of two years, the collection highlights these commercial spaces nearly devoid of the human activity that usually populates them, turning the storefront into a stage for both nostalgia and modernity.

Some of the boroughs’ hidden gems — the Sunshine Cinema, Veniero’s italian bakery, Midtown comics — are animated through a hazy fog of subdued pastel fluorescence and a wash of dimly lit neon. Theaters, delis, peep shows, corner stores, and hotels display marquees from a time past, or contemporary exterior façades, further illustrating the diversity and complexity of Manhattan’s perpetually buzzing landscape.

Love this.

The Apple ‘Lightmac’ developed by industrial designer, Tomas Moyano, integrates the power of a desktop computer, the user experience of tablets and the progressing technology of projected touch screens, to create a conceptual product aimed for the market in 2025. The core i9 processor central component that has 16 GB of RAM and 24 hour battery life, takes care of the processing tasks and works in sync via Bluetooth 6.0, with the external modules and even a wireless keyboard. The peripheral parts which have a battery life of 12 hours, project the display and can be re-sized to offer a customizable interaction. (via DesignBoom)

Pearlfisher New York has created the new brand strategy, tone of voice, brand identity, and packaging for organic chocolate brand, NibMor. A premium snack brand that does things differently, NibMor was founded by two nutritionists with a love for dark chocolate, eager to share the health benefits of chocolate as part of an active lifestyle. The challenge for NibMor was how to create a cohesive brand message that was enticing to consumers, expressing their healthy point of difference in a desirable way on the crowded confectionary shelf.

Pearlfisher’s redesign and repositioning for NibMor unifies the health benefits of dark chocolate with the personality behind the brand in a dynamic way, creating a whole new visual and verbal language for chocolate. A fluid word mark takes their existing identity from earnest to energetic and reflects the personal touch that NibMor impart into each bar of their chocolate. As portion control is particularly important to NibMor’s food philosophy, Pearlfisher has used a hand as a primary design element that playfully cues the correct portion size for each product in the range. On the back of pack these hands evolve to evoke the personality and vibrancy behind the brand. The result is a new design that is modern, expressive and breaks the traditional category codes of chocolate to be both accessible and indulgent. Lastly, a new and vibrant color palette helps NibMor differentiate itself from competitor confectionary brands.

Tess Wicksteed, Executive Vice President at Pearlfisher New York comments, “We see Nibmor as the future of chocolate: chocolate with substance; fulfilling on many levels – social, personal and environmental. The project was about defining a clear brand idea and then bringing it to life both visually and verbally.” Hamish Campbell, Creative Director at Pearlfisher New York comments, “Our new design for NibMor does away with the idea of guilty pleasure, making NibMor chocolate an everyday indulgence that you can feel good about. We can’t wait to see this brand start to change the market for the better.” (via Lovely Package)

This is such a simple, but yet striking concept and packaging design in my point of view. Love the strong colour coding and the paper used for the packaging.
