Talking about Arts & Crafts with used car tires, huh? How about Sculptures made out of used rubber?
These are indeed made out of used tires, so if you indeed love the earth, and art of course, you’ll love this idea. This method for reusing car tires can be the best recycling method for the used rubber that otherwise could end up in a landfill. As you can imagine, these sculptures are made of used tires in combination with stainless steel and resins.
This fantastic forms are artistically used into creating fantastic forms, and are the work of the Korean artist Yong Ho Ji.
This is a recent finding via Youtube, and we think you will love this training available for free, as well as the paid one. The video embeded here on the site is the first one they launched and it’s basically a tutorial for drawing a 3d lantern. But enough blabbering, this is what you can do with Sketchup, a awesome software from the good ol’ Google:
Enjoy, and if you think this was helpful, drop a line, don’t be just a passer-by.
The following collection of tables and chairs will change your view upon wood’s power and aspect when illuminated in this special manner. Talk about vision, heh? Avanzini Group definitely knows how to capture attention and make you drop jaw. The collection you’re seeing is called Bright Wood’s Collection by Giancarlo Zema and are currently on display at the Design in Nature exhibition in the Triennale Design Museum as part of the Milan Furniture Fair.
This uber collection was discovered at Milan Design Week, and we felt in love with the unique aesthetic that’s equal parts alien nation and woodland tranquility. These radiant pieces, made from wood and natural resin strips offer a vision of futuristic style as they glow in the dark.
Despite the mix of the existing concrete structure with the new additions and the complex inner core (dubbed the “showcase”), the exterior of the building is read as a whole. The structural “X” of the glass panels on the facade break the monotony of the box on the outside, contrasting with the mirror like finish of the volume on top.
The “showcase” fills the central void with a mirror finish that turns the volume into a sculpture (as seen on the photos and on the showcase elevations below), while housing different programs that benefit from the arrange of the boxes, such as the auditorium, meeting rooms and showrooms.
Efrain E. Velez,is an architect and designer from Austin, Texas and this is the O-Lithas collection of cast concrete furniture he has created.
I found this on the Contemporist website in furniture. I love concrete as a material for furniture, actually I’ve wanted to start a business with this, but that remained at the stage of concept and sketches. Anyway, this collection is awesome, and if you love modernism, than this has the perfect lines for you. I know, the house in the background is brilliant, and yes, I will give you details about it after the pictures, aight?
