Banksy announces a month long takeover of the walls of New York

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Wednesday 2 October 2013

That mysterious dark lord of the street art world, Banksy, has struck again, in his typically cryptic, enigmatic way. He’s been expertly fueling the flames of innuendo via his website of late, posting new work in LA and New York and alluding to a possible uninvited (but much appreciated) takeover of the walls of Manhattan with the accompanying statement: ‘Better Out Than In. An artists residency on the streets of New York.’ Ah huh.

By Cormack O'Connor in New Design on Wednesday 9 January 2013

After seeing Back To The Future, have you always dreamed of climbing into a DeLorean and speeding through time? Well, if you have, you now can … providing you’re in New York City. Designer Mike Lubrano has transformed a DeLorean into an iconic yellow taxi for fashion brand Nooka. It’s all in the name of progress; the car being a symbol for Nooka’s futuristic philosophy.

A table that folds out like a map

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Design on Monday 17 December 2012

I chanced upon Swedish designers Sigrid Stromgren’s and Sanna Lindström’s collaborative work, the Grand Central Table, in an old copy of InDesign magazine the other day. Folded into its most compact state, the piece of work takes up very little space. But then it opens up — just like the foldout map of New York that inspired it — to make a pretty cool table. Has to be seen to be believed.

Natalie Frank: paintings that fall outside the comfort zone

Wyatt Mills Reader Find

By Wyatt Mills in New Art on Tuesday 4 December 2012

Finding an artist who works outside of their comfort zone is rare. Natalie Frank is one of today’s pioneers who throws herself off the edge she dangles from. It took seconds for me to realize she was approaching next level work when I first saw her paintings at the Armory in New York. Her recent show at Frederick & Freiser Gallery exemplified how her style has evolved even further since regaining the use of her left eye, curing her dimensional blindness.

JWT headquarters in NYC: gorgeous architecture

Darwin Cosico Contributor

By Darwin Cosico in New Design on Tuesday 20 November 2012

This is some serious architecture porn. One of my favourite ad agencies in the world, JWT New York, is not only known for producing brilliant ads, but they’re also known for having one of the most creative offices in the industry. The office was designed to accommodate over 900 employees, and to transition the agency into a more creative, flexible, and open environment, reflecting the revitalization of its business model and brand identity. The renovation was completed in 2008 and was spearheaded by Clive Wilkinson Architects. HOK New York acted as Executive Architect, and DEGW assisted with client visioning. JWT’s New York office is definitely a sight to behold.

People’s Pops: frozen fruit pops in New York

Leah Piepgras Reader Find

By Leah Piepgras in New Food and Packaging on Thursday 31 May 2012

I LOVE People’s Pops. I just had the most amazing frozen fruit pop ever in New York. I am not usually a fan of popsicles (overly sweet/sticky), but these were unlike anything I had ever had. They take fresh locally grown fruits and combined them with herbs and spices. For example, roasting the apricots before […]
