The Circuit Marker Is A Sight To Behold.


The moment of electricity though a circuit board is something that can be extremely fluid, as fluid ink from a pen.  Check out the beauty that silver micro-particles circuitry and origami paper, that becomes a city of lights.

The Lyon Airport Just Got A Major Upgrade.


They’re fun, open-minded, hard-working, and they make fantastic design. The French design agency Graphéine recently concluded the 2017–2018 campaign for the Saint-Étienne Opera house with designs full of emotion, hence its title émotions partagées (shared emotions). And what’s more, they’ve reason to celebrate since 2017 is their 15-year anniversary.  Graphéine’s work begs second and third glances, not only because of the bold typography they incorporate into their solutions, but also because of the daring illusions they pull off, such as their anamorphic graphics for the Lyon St-Exupéry airport.

The New Scent Of Fresh.


The Scentee Machina gives the fragrance diffuser such a radically different avatar, it transforms what you imagine diffusers should look like. Designed as a product that makes your environment smell beautiful, the Scentee Machina even looks beautiful in a way that draws you towards it. It harnesses an aesthetic that’s reminiscent of the Nixie Tube, and brings that visual language to the fragrance diffuser, a product that hasn’t seen much change in 500 years of existing (aside from going electric).

The Scentee Machina asks the question, is the diffuser’s sole purpose just emitting fragrance? Or can a beautiful aroma just be a part of a beautiful experience… created by a product that’s beautiful too? The Scentee Machina is a flat plate that lets you dock a clear fragrance tube into it (it really does look as pretty as a nixie tube), and comes in a Uno and Quattro variants letting you dock single or multiple fragrances.

Controlled via a smartphone app, you can choose which fragrance you want to be diffused, and at what time. The Scentee’s fragrance list is quite inclusive, and far from traditional, allowing you to scent up your room with anything from Sandalwood, to Vanilla, even to Buttered Toast! The app learns from your choices and begins deploying fragrances based on your moods at the time of the day.

Changing a fragrance tube is as simple as unplugging a tube and replacing it with a new one. Magnetic connectors let tubes snap to the base, and when in use, a warm light glows from the tube’s bottom, providing a visual cue while also letting you see the liquid level descend eventually in all its beauty.

What the Scentee Machina does is it abstracts the diffuser, not assigning to it the conventional urn/vase/mountain shape we’ve seen all along. It creates an aesthetic that feels familiar, but not familiar to fragrance diffusers… Which is what’s truly innovative, and goshdarnit beautiful. Not to mention if you could get my room to smell like Chocolate or Buttered Toast, why wouldn’t you?

Check Out Some Of Ori Toors’ Vector Work.


When it comes to the technical terms surrounding beautiful and colorful art, people aren’t normally too fussed, but when it comes to Ori Toors illustrations, the vector part is important.  For anyone not ‘digital art’ savvy,  the difference between a jpeg and a vector is essentially that a jpeg is a bitmap based on pixels, that can be seen when blown up too big.  But a vector is based on paths that can be stretched to any size.  This essentially means that Ori Toors incredible works can be blown up to the size of a building, and still look just as amazing.

 

The NEW Atari?!


Atari dominated the 1970s with games and consoles that delighted everyone for over a decade. In fact, some may say Atari even gave us Apple Computers and Steve Jobs, after he moved onto developing the most valuable company in the world with Woz post working on the Atari title Breakout in 1976 (Breakout was the basis and inspiration for certain aspects of the Apple II personal computer). However, Atari saw its decline towards the end of the 80s, with the likes of Nintendo and Sega taking the mantle. A little over 40 years later, Atari is back to reclaim past glory. Teased at CES back in June/July, the Ataribox home finally begins its pre-orders this Thursday.

The device will have a custom AMD processor and run Linux, giving the Ataribox the capability of playing both classic Atari games and mid-tier PC titles.  The Ataribox comes in two eye-catching finishes – a sleek glossed black with either a wood finish combination or an all glossed black look with red highlights. This device can sit on any table or drawers in the home and never look out of place. With quite an appealing aesthetic, the Ataribox will be sure to raise eyebrows and rekindle nostalgic memories once it’s released and in the homes of many come the Spring of 2018.
