Artist Peddy Mergui created a series of food packaging, extended from the lines of luxury brands. His exhibition ‘Wheat is Wheat is Wheat’, currently presented at the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco, displays the collection of crafted boxes, containers and cases, each bearing a familiar trademark of a well-known brand.  Nike, Tiffany, Gucci and Apple are logos featured on the packs, which are aesthetically described by visual elements and characteristics appropriate to each label.

Fabian Oefner recently visited Ferrari’s headquarters in Maranello to interpret the latest Ferrari Grand Tourer, the 2015 California T as an art form through his eyes.  The resulting video and photographs are an exploration of the essence of the California T. They encapsulate the pillars of purposeful design and perpetual innovation that are constants in the creation of all of Ferraris.  State of the Art follows Fabian’s journey and his search for inspiration.

Ferrari Reveals Its 458 Speciale A.


ferrari-458-speciale-a-front

The convertible version of Ferrari’s hardcore 458 Speciale has been revealed, and it’s called the 458 Speciale A (A as in Aperta).  The car will be the most powerful road-going Spider in its illustrious history and will be getting the same engine as the hardtop Speciale.  So that means a naturally aspirated 4.5-liter V8 with 597bhp spinning the rear wheels via a seven-speed twin-clutch semi-automatic gearbox.  That means a 0-100km/h time of 3 seconds, a 0-200km/h time of 9.5 seconds and a top speed that will be north of 200mph (321km/h). And all without a turbo or supercharger helping out.

Its folding metal roof can be dropped almost as quickly (14 sec) and is unique to this model. The standard 458 Italia Spider has a fabric soft top.  However one thing the standard convertible boasts that this doesn’t is an exposed engine bay. This car’s rear has been redesigned to accommodate the folding aluminum mechanism but it still looks just as dramatic.  Inside the cabin will get exclusive carbon fiber trim and other details to mark it out from other 458 cars, and there will also be a prominently placed plaque that lists the number of awards that the 458′s engine has scooped during its lifetime.  Just 499 examples of the limited-edition Ferrari will be produced.  The Speciale A will be in France to kick off the Paris Motor Show, which commences October 4th.

The Worlds Greatest Drag Race?

We normally like to keep our descriptions about any given subject to at least a small paragraph, but when Motor Trend put 11 of the world’s most badass cars head-to-head for the drag race to end all drag races… There’s not much more to say than “watch the video”.

The Ferrari 750 Monza Spider.


IW-Ferrari-750-Monza-Scaglietti-1955-22

The Ferrari 750 Monza Spider is one of the wonders created by an artist who according to legend was able, in just a few minutes, to turn a sheet of aluminum into a perfectly smooth egg.  Modena-born Sergio Scaglietti (1920-2011) – who in his youth had repaired countless car bumpers working as a tinsmith – used his hammer with the lightness and precision of a surgeon with a scalpel.  In 1939, Enzo Ferrari – the founder of the world-renowned automobile company in Maranello – met Scaglietti and was immediately struck by his talent. A long collaboration and friendship began, with the artist-tinsmith creating some of Ferrari’s most beautiful cars throughout the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s (including the iconic “Testa Rossa”).  The 750 Monza was designed by Dino Ferrari; only thirty-one were made, between 1954 and 1955.  The model was one of the works of art forged by a genius.  Check the method.

An Electric Ferarri?


The Ferrari Millenio, as the name might allude, is a futuristic super-car concept that features a complex combination of materials and technologies that we can hope will become a serious reality before the end of the next millennium. The two-seater includes a buckypaper reinforced body that is stronger than steel and lighter than carbon fiber as well as dual electric engines that can be recharged via solar panels or through an inductive power transfer system.

Italy Launches Ferrari Style High-Speed Train.


Italy’s first private high-speed train, launched by Ferrari head Luca di Montezemolo’s company NTV and boasting sleek interiors and a cinema carriage, made its inaugural journey on Friday.  The dark-red 200-meter (656 foot) bullet-shaped train — named “Italo” — set out from Rome’s Termini station, taking just over an hour to reach Naples.  “Italo has arrived, the competition has kicked off… bringing real advantages to all those who travel,” NTV told its first passengers as they admired interiors styled by celebrated design house Italdesign Giugiaro.  The trains have gold edging, panoramic windows, leather seats and wider carriages than the classic French TGV trains. They offer three different coach classes and travel at a top speed of 360 kilometers (224 miles) per hour.

France’s national rail company SNCF owns a 20-percent stake in NTV, which is led by a group of Italian businessmen including Montezemolo, NTV’s president, and Diego Della Valle, the head of luxury shoemaker Tod’s.  The company hopes to take a bite out of the national state rail network’s market and gain an advantage with a pricing system where passengers can get cut-price tickets by booking early or traveling at off-peak times.  “All our employees speak English as well as Italian, and each station we transit through will have an ‘Italo House’ for passengers wanting information or a rest,” Giuseppe Bonollo, NTV commercial director, told AFP.

The Crashed Ferrari Coffee Table.


This is a coffee table containing the compacted remains of a Ferrari inside constructed by designer Charly Molinelli.  He came up with the idea after a customer asked him to design something “a bit special” for their front room.  He then sourced a wreck and built a wooden cabinet on wheels to present to his client – although the price of the swanky piece is unknown.

Automotive Photography.


I love cars.  Just to put it simply.  I grew up in a place where street racing was very common, and some people spent more time working on their cars than they spent attending the local high school.  Luxury cars, foreign cars, or exotic cars, don’t make a difference, I’m developed a solid love for automobiles of any type.  (Even thoough, I feel like the ONLY thing in the world sexier than Jessica Castillo is a fresh Aston Martin).  When I recently came across a collection of automotive photography, I was enthused to say the least.  This collection comes from all different photographers from all over the world, of all different cars, of all shapes, sizes, and styles.  I didn’t chose the photos for what cars were in them, but for the composition of the photo, the angles, focal points, lighting, style, and depth all contribute to the beauty of the car being displayed, and I didn’t want to limit what I posted just because the car in the photo was old.  So take a look both above and below and hopefully you’ll see as much beauty in these photos as I do.
