These photographs document different acoustic listening devices developed for the Dutch army as part of air defense systems research between World Wars 1 and 2.
Indonesian designer Alvin Tjitrowirjo designed the ‘Linger’ Bench, a communal hand-made bench made of natural rattan wood. The design is obviously pleasing to the eye, yet what I particularly like about it the idea behind it: to get a group of people to come together and sit, linger, and socialize in it. Also, be sure to check out his three-person bench called “Mingle“.
I will come out and say it as is: I’m not a fan of Tim Burton’s work… Yet, I will admit the fact that I have just finished watching Vincent, his first stop motion film from ‘82 (which he did together with Rick Heinrich), and I actually enjoyed it. As for the rest of his work… ehhmmm still not diggin’ it.
