Adidas

Dorophy Tang for Adidas


This past weekend Adidas opened its massive new Beijing outpost. In celebration, a special exhibition of Dorophy Tang was mounted. Tang, based in Hong Kong and China, mixed Adidas heritage, footballing visuals and French furniture forms into her display. Unmitigated joy comes through the smiling, chubby little kids that figure in each work. Nice reminder of what the sporting life should be like. (via Think Silly).

The Level Barstool

The Level Barstool From Johanson Design



For a few years now, it’s been impossible to pickup an interior design magazine without seeing at least one (if not many) interiors featuring the LEM Piston Stool. It’s a great stool, and a design which seems to have already acheived iconic status. We love the LEM Piston Stool, but it’s getting a bit trite, because they’re everywhere. They’re as common as Barcelona chairs, Corbusier lounges, and Noguchi tables, which are all great too, but we don’t really feel like paying $6 for magazines where we see the same thing all the time. So how about a little change? Johanson Design has a new barstool called Level that they showed off at this year’s Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan. We’re looking forward to seeing it in some interior photo shoots.
