Pop-Up Bass is a minimalist design created by Portugal-based designer Daniela Mata. This project is based on seizing the vibrations that are produced by the column from the subwoofer. Enjoying the movements that produce the bass, the speakers create visual effects through the styrofoam balls that move to the rhythm of the music. The design provides for both an auditory and visual experience.

35 Beautiful Restaurant Menu Designs

Restaurants often over look their menu designs. I’m sure you’ve probably visited numerous restaurants with ugly menus. If you’re a restaurant owner, you might think that the design of your menu isn’t very important. Your top two priorities are probably to provide great service and quality food.

Now I’m not going to bullshit anybody and say that everybody in the world understands and cares about design. This is clearly untrue. In my life I’ve seen many average people using ugly products, going to half-assed restaurants, buying crappy furniture, buying ugly cars, etc. Many people go through life not giving a damn about design, functionality, and aesthetics. That’s all good and dandy, however you must not forget about intelligent people.

Now I don’t want to sounds arrogant, but I’m not your average joe. When I visit a restaurant that offers great service, a beautiful setting, quality food, outstanding all around design, great time, friendly waiters, etc. I’m flabbergasted. I notice the little things and appreciate the hard work of others.

On the other hand, when I see a restaurant cut corners, I feel cheated.

If a restaurant is clearly profitable. Why not hire a professional designer to create some beautiful business cards, flyers, menus, etc.? If you, as a restaurant owner, care about the image of your business, you’re not going to overlook design aspect of it. If you’re too cheap to invest in your own business, that pretty much sums up what kind of business owner you are.

Please don’t think that the menu is the only thing you have to focus on. I think every single restaurant needs a beautiful website to stand out from their local competitors, take advantage of social media, have a memorable logo design, provide quality service, use creative marketing techniques to bring in visitors, have beautiful exterior and interior design, and to never cut corners (even if your going to lose money).

Losanges Rug Collection * Bouroullec Brothers

 

1. losanges rugs ronan erwan  Losanges Rug Collection * Bouroullec Brothers

The Bouroullec brothers (ronan & erwan bouroullec) continue their study of simplicity and elegance with their new Losanges collection. It’s about reinterpreting the traditional Persian rug using the ancient kilim technique.

 

 

Technically complex, the Losanges collection requires great skill as it involves combining 13 colours through the geometrical rhombus shape, a great challenge for the craftsmen of Northern Pakistan. As well as being crafted by hand, the Afghan wool is also spun by hand, which allows for some unique colour tones to be highlighted which make each rhombus different and each rug a unique item.

Designed for Spanish brand nanimarquina, the rugs are inspired traditional Persian rugs and are made by craftsmen in Pakistan.

“We have always been captivated by the traditional Persian rug, especially by the very old kilim savoir-faire which we see as a delicate mix of rusticity and fineness. We have been lucky to see this project carried through by the craftsmen of Northern Pakistan who managed to skillfully combine thirteen colors through the geometrical rhombus shape.”
