Italian artist Agostino Lacurci is an illustrator with a great style, these are some of the murals he created!
Early 2012, HEYHEYHEY had some time to spare and they felt the need to challenge themselves once again, so they set out to build another one of their chain reaction machines called Melvin. This time around it was a portable Mini Melvin!
Conveniently built in two old suitcases, Melvin the Mini Machine is a Rube Goldberg machine specifically designed to travel the world. Each time Melvin fully completes a run, he ‘signs’ a postcard and sticks a stamp to it – making it ready to be sent.
Melvin the what? Melvin the Magical Mixed Media Machine (or just Melvin the Machine) is best described as a Rube Goldberg machine with a twist.
Besides doing what Rube Goldbergs do best – performing a simple task as inefficiently as possible, often in the form of a chain reaction – Melvin has an identity. Actually, the only purpose of this machine is promoting its own identity. (Melvin is designed by HEYHEYHEY)
In recent years moving from one house to the other is something that everybody does. You pack your belongings and you can settle on just about any location.
Naty Mosko created this furniture series ‘Movable Presence’ to assist in that behavior. Supported by a study of furniture and personal demands, Mosko created furniture, that can be moved and reassembled at any time.
They are made of wood, a few blocks, plates, and an orange belt with ratchet. With a few simple steps they are assembled and disassembled and can be stored easily and compactly. No more need for tools or complex IKEA instruction manuals!
Patrick Seymour created this Moustage font in honor of his father who always wore his mustache so well.
Schorem is an old fashioned barbershop based in Rotterdam. Some describe it as being Brooklyn in the beginning of the last century, it’s Johnny Cash and Al Capone in one!
Going to Schorem is an experience which starts at the door, and the sign on the door says it all… this is a place for men!
Owners Leen and Bertus describe it as the only women-free-zone in Rotterdam (Netherlands). Don’t think they don’t like the ladies, they love them, but they feel that every man deserves a place where he can be a man. That’s why they decided to start an old fashioned barbershop, no bullshit, just cutting and shaving. A place where you can get a real mens haircut, cut by someone who knows how a real mens haircut looks!
Why should all men go to Schorem? Because every man, that has a pair, should understand that there are only 3 types of men who touch them; your doctor, your tailor and your barber. His own barber who he can trust with his sharp scissors and cold steel, just (on a leather belt) sharpened, razor-sharp knife.
And that’s what Schorem is all about, real men, being real men! No disturbance and only the bare essentials left! Good advice for gentleman, coffee and a decent haircut.
