Truth Coffee in Cape Town

The Urban Grocer Contributor

By The Urban Grocer in New Food and Packaging on Wednesday 27 March 2013

Smitten. That’s what we are for Cape Town’s Truth Coffee. Blame the stripped away industrial interior, the long hanging lights, the beautiful vintage detailing on the coffee bar, and the heavy wooden communal tables, anchored with piping. The ruby red stools, the pops of color, and the grand silver roasting machine help too. Through and […]

USB-powered tentacle does nothing but squirm? Too cool

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Tech on Friday 21 December 2012

Trust ThinkGeek to come up with the coolest gadgets. Once you plug in the tentacle into your USB port, it will come alive and squirm about… and that’s all. It won’t store data. It won’t open up some fancy phone app to let you dial through to the neighbourhood kraken. It just squirms about uncomfortably […]

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Saturday 1 September 2012

With the Doors Project, communications strategist Siyuan and art director Hwee Chong went around Singapore, projecting loads of doors in its public spaces: ‘We wanted to make a statement about life, and jolt people to think: Instead of following the light at the end of the tunnel, why not carry our own lights, and create our own doors?’ Simple and to the point.

Omni Bean Bags

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Products on Wednesday 11 July 2012

I don’t think there’s a genuine technology company that doesn’t do a good beanbag in the office. It’s like tea and milk: creative geeks with computers need something comfy to park themselves on while they tap away at their Apple Macs, all the while whistfully dreaming they’re extras in the movie The Social Network. So […]

Horror illustrations by Suehiro Maruo

Quan Yeomans Reader Find

By Quan Yeomans in New Illustration on Wednesday 14 December 2011

Ultra Gash Inferno is one of those short manga collections that really stuck with me over the years. Think Chinese Propaganda art meets Bataille’s Story of the Eye. It’s base, grotesque, ludicrous, senseless and yet so beautiful at the same time. I finally got around to watching Suehiro Maruo’s loosely animated movie Midori (Mr. Arashi’s Amazing Freak Show — watch below), whose sub-Hanna Barberran roughness and geek love content has a likeness to the naivety and brutal yum to some of the best outsider art.
