Nendo’s Whimsical Door Designs Make Entering And Leaving A Room Fun

‘Seven Doors’

We previously featured the beautiful geometric chocolates designed by Nendo.

The Japanese design studio has recently created a collection of seven whimsical doors for the 70th anniversary of Abe Kogyo, a legendary manufacturer of wooden doors. The ‘Seven Doors’ collection feature surreal doors, with one that is tessellated to look like wooden lattices, and another that is built right into a corner.

Although the collection is not for sale, Abe Kogyo’s engineers are inspired and have already begun looking into adapting some of Nendo’s ideas for their new products.

Scroll down to have a look at the surreal doorways. You can also visit their website for more details.

‘Hang’, a door fitted with an internal magnetic sheet, allowing you to attach accessories like trays, dust bins, flower pots, vases or refrigerator magnets.

‘Baby’, inspired by the question: “What if babies had their own door to enter a house?”

‘Kumiko’, named after the Japanese technique of assembling wooden lattices without nails, this tessellated door is gradually assembled from the lower-right corner upwards into a smooth, uninterrupted surface.

‘Lamp’, a door and a lighting fixture in one. The lamp is powered using the same wiring techniques used in electronic locks.

‘Slide’, this door contains various panels which can be slid out of the way, like a window blind, to identify who’s ringing your bell or to let some light or breeze through.

‘Corner’, a door that allows the user to enter and exit through corners of a room. The door opens particularly wide and can practically allow for easier wheelchair access.

‘Wall’, a door covered with shelves and picture frames, becoming an extension of a household wall.

Beautiful, Inspiring Portraits Of Brave Ladies Battling An Incurable Disease

Midway through his work on the book Just Breathe–a photo series on adults suffering from cystic fibrosis–Ontario-based fashion photographer Ian Pettigrew realized that there was a disproportionate number of women patients being featured in his work.

According to Pettigrew, an individual’s comment on how the “project [was] just turning out to be a bunch of hot chicks with CF” finally pushed him to start a series dedicated solely to female cystic fibrosis patients.

There is no known cure for this genetic disease which damages the lungs.

Inspiration for the series title, ‘Salty Girls: The Women of Cystic Fibrosis’, came from one of the common symptoms of the disease–salty skin.

The project focuses on the message of feeling beautiful in one’s own skin. He told the Huffington Post, “A lot of this is back to the issue of body shaming. Women with no scars have it bad enough in this digital age, now grow up with massive scars across your belly, and scars from your double lung transplant…[s]eeing how positive they can remain, when dealing with this horrible disease is inspiring”.

Several images of the ladies can be viewed below. Visit Pettigrew’s website to learn more about this genetic disease and the people who battle against it daily.

Designer Redesigns Comic Sans, Tries To Make It ‘Beautiful’

Can Comic Sans, the world’s most reviled typeface, be made beautiful?

Designer Bård Edlund explains how he takes on the typeface, and sets out on a quest to “make beauty out of garbage”.

Edlund has created a total of four variations—starting with the first experiment by chopping off offensive parts of the letter forms, and giving them a metallic, futuristic makeover.

He then went on to create a 3-D geometric sculptural version, and another that folds the letters in half to create new shapes.

For his final experiment, he rotated copies of each letter around an anchor point of 40 degrees, eight times each, to create a circular symbol.

What do you think of these new versions of Comic Sans?

You can read the full article about it here.
