These are a few of my favorite things
Here is this week's three. From sportswear to emojis.
Picked this one up via my textile obsessed friend Angelica Warchal. This eco-friendly fabric treatment made with real gold particles makes fabrics dry up to 3x faster, lasts 3x longer, is UV protective and permanently controls odor.
Plus how cool is the thought of wearing gold when you train? See their indiegogo campaign.
2. The Touch Bar
It must be difficult to be Apple at the moment, the pressure to innovate must be insane.
This week they launched the new MacBook Pro (it's been a while), and it features now a strip of glass on your keyboard that is touch enable for you to easily access everything from phone calls to color palettes.
Look pretty, time will tell if it is enough to please the mob.
3. MoMA acquires Emojis
The Museum of Modern Art, New York has acquired the original 176 emojis designed in 1999 by Shigetaka Kurita. He created them for Japanese firm NTT Docomo for use on phones and pagers.
Paul Galloway, architecture and design collection specialist for MoMA, says these “humble masterpieces of design planted the seeds for the explosive growth of a new visual language”.
The acquisition by one of the world’s most important galleries speaks volumes of the importance of emojis to contemporary culture. The collection will go on display at the museum in December shown using animations and prints.
