Comments Off on Momentum brings a psychedelic show of light and color to Vivid Sydney

A dynamic show of light and color has touched down in the land Down Under. As part of Vivid Sydney , the city’s annual light, music, and ideas festival, Australian artists Stephanie Shehata and Erin Slaviero created Momentum , a collection of three vertical freestanding portals that explore the relationship between light, material, form and speed. Viewers can interact with each portal by spinning a wheel that transforms the installation into a moving kaleidoscope of color and reflection. The installation is on view from 6PM onwards every day in Walsh Bay until the end of Vivid Sydney on Saturday, June 18. https://vimeo.com/168824671 + Momentum The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Intellibins helps you find recycling bins on city streets

Have you ever found yourself wandering around a city trying to find a recycling bin, only to have to stow that plastic food container in your backpack because you don’t want to pollute? Many American cities aren’t exactly ahead of the game when it comes to public recycling — they aren’t offered on every corner. But one startup is on a mission to facilitate recycling on city streets, simply by helping people find the bins. Their location-based mobile app called Intellibins helps you find the nearest recycling bin with step-by-step navigation, so you can always recycle no matter where you are. The current Intellibins app is available on iPhone and Android for all five boroughs of New York City. Let’s hope the idea catches on in other cities soon. + Intellibins The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

KÓSMOS necklaces are made to last a lifetime using industrial pipe waste

Comments Off on KÓSMOS necklaces are made to last a lifetime using industrial pipe waste

A small Malmö-based design studio by the Norwegian duo Kristin Løberg and Martina Zbinden has developed a new jewelry brand entitled KÓSMOS with elegant necklaces made out of  industrial waste from metal pipes. The polished rings in copper, brass and aluminum combines a beautiful symphony of various material and size combinations. The studio’s vision is to build a brand with substance and honesty, with a touch of experimental fun. The jewelry packaging also hides a clever surprise: a business card made out of sandpaper. This reflects the core design philosophy of the brand: products should stand the test of time and age gracefully.  KÓSMOS does that by naturally darkening over time due to oxidation, but the sandpaper will enable those who don´t desire this effect to brush it off using sandpaper. The designers behind KÓSMOS think its important that designers play the role as humble educators, and give people cues to care for their products instead of just buying something new. + KOSMOS  The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
