So last week I was shooting a campaign with my friend Ett Venter, such a rad guy and great photographer.. and I missed three things! So here is this week's.. right on time. ;)
grace and peace
Legendary fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto admits he was tired of making fancy clothing in the new short doc Master of the Shadows. Filmed around Y-3’s AW16 show, the designer is reflecting on his thirteen-year collaboration with adidas and how it revived his love of design at a time he was falling out of love with fashion.
The clothing, Y-3 is incredible, I would kill for those shoes. Here is the thing though, he revamped and revived his entire career at around 60. SIXTY!!! The world has changed most definitely, when many people used to think about where they will retire many now are shining in the last third of their lives, creating their best work.
watch the film below, I recommend putting on the youtube generated subtitles (even though they aren't correct all the time).
2. Grow your own chair
Constructed by growing grass on a structure built from flatpacked lasercut cardboard, this lawn chair by Studio Nucleo is just awesome.
Want to make one of your very own? Jump in on their Kickstarter campaign here.
3. Road signs of the Future
As we head into a future with self-driving cars, electric vehicles charging stations as common as petrol stations, buses that straddle cars and complete robot autonomy, it seems right to start reimagining our road signs.
Car Keys, an online car dealership of sorts, looked at what these future road signs might look like. What it came up with is a fascinating glimpse into a future that might be closer than most of us imagine.
This is by me, Pierre, each week I post three things that grabbed my attention, and that I like. You can also sign up for the newsletter version here
