Unlocking every iPhone at once
For the next few months, this interactive Swing Time installation on the Lawn on D in Boston invites visitors to sit back and relax while swinging in glowing hammocks that change color according to motion. The temporary project, created by Höweler + Yoon Architecture, was developed as a way to “create a new type of city park.”
Dominic Wilcox's “future" car is driverless and made Stained-glass
Wilcox created the car, called Stained-glass Driverless Sleeper Car of the Future, as a commission for MINI Frontiers exhibition on the future of mobility, which opened today as part of the London Design Festival.
The designer imagined a future where all cars were controlled by computers that would eliminate collisions and accidents, meaning everyday vehicles would no longer need to be designed for safety.

While known as a photographer through work for hip publications like Vice and Intro Magazine, multitalented Lansom creates each Sputnik Lamp by hand in her light, airy Parisian atelier. Drawing on an innate feeling for color, she carefully selects her palate of yarns, pulling each string taut around a geometric frame until a complex interwoven pattern emerges.
Concentrated, laborious, and tricky weaving results in these delicately graphic, semi-transparent lampshades. Whether hanging from the ceiling or standing on the floor, illuminated or not, these gorgeous creations have a serene and subtle allure—the international style press certainly went crazy for them when they were released earlier this year.
