What It Looks Like When André Josselin Takes A Trip To Chicago. (Pt.2)


9ddbca41461231-57a74b3e49ed3

Not too long ago, there was a post about German photographer André Josselin‘s photos during his trip to Lollapalooza.  There were so many photos we couldn’t put them all into one post, so in part 2, we’re going to pick up right where we left off.  Once again you can tell by the rest of his collection how incredibly talented of a photographer he is.

German photographer André Josselin out of Hamburg took a trip with friends to the Lollapolooza festival in Chicago.  This unique collection of amazing shots, was beautifully edited, and really brings through the feelings of excitement and allure of not only the city of Chicago, but how good of a time they must have had.  Unfortunately the compendium of photos is so large, we had to split it up into two posts.  Check out André’s work below, and expect to see some of the rest very soon.

When Denise became “Miss Waldkraiburg” in 2007, it was only the beginning for the German “Wiesn-Playmate”. She was named the German Playmate of the month of October this year, just in time for the German Oktoberfest to start. Through this opportunity, Mexico’s Playboy also showed interest in the German beauty and they recently did a shoot as well. So, sure enough to say that we will hear and see more from this German model very soon.

What’s A Raumzeichnungen?


raumzeichnung01 raumzeichnung03 SONY DSC

German artist Monika Grzymala`s three-dimensional drawings are taking over the space. For her, drawing is visualized thinking. She is starting her works from scratch, developing huge installations made of black tape that seem to burst on the walls, taking over the gallery space. Grzymala creates vivid artworks that become accessible for the viewer and suggest new perspectives for a usually two-dimensional drawing.

2015 All-Electric Audi R8 E-Tron


Fahraufnahme    Farbe: Crescendorot

When the Audi E-Tron was originally unveiled, the main concern for the German auto maker was the 130-mile battery range. Over the years however, Audi has continued to work on the vehicle, and is now getting more than the double the output, with a battery life of 280 miles. That may not seem like a ton of range, but you have to remember that the 2-door pumps out 376 horsepower and 500+ lb-ft of torque – a setup that’s good for a zero to sixty time of 4.2 seconds. The vehicle’s production will be extremely limited, and will only be sold to customers upon request. It’s definitely a good start for what looks to be a promising future for the electric car segment.

The British car maker is sourcing Kodewa for the build (the same people that built the Lotus Le Mans car), and have teamed up with German concept designer Daniel Simon (the same man behind Tron: Legacy) for that beautiful carbon fiber and titanium constructed body. As expected, the bike will be extremely limited (100 units in total), and there will be customization options for clients. The bike is said to be equipped with a four-stroke 1195cc V-twin engine cranking out 200 horsepower, all in a motorcycle with a curb weight just under 400 pounds.

Audi is looking to get in on all the CES action as the brand announces they will be unveiling the Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight concept car during the Las Vegas electronics show. LED headlights are still a newer technology on the automotive scene, but the German auto maker is looking to the future for the headlamps on this beast. This Audi concept has been outfitted with laser diode headlights that are capable of illuminating the road up to 1,640 feet. Of course what’s under the hood is just as impressive. Audi has equipped the Quattro Laserlight with a plug-in hybrid drive system that pumps out a whopping 700 horsepower while still being able to get 94 miles to the gallon. There is plenty more technology used throughout the vehicle including Audi’s MMI multimedia system, a system that controls all of the car’s on-board electronics. Sport Quattro concepts have been popping up more frequently, and while Audi won’t commit to the Laserlight specifically, they have confirmed that some form of the concepts will be landing at dealers in the coming years.

Renowned German auto tuners Alpina recently took to the floor at the Tokyo Motor Show to unveil their latest advanced BMW creation: the 2014 BMW Alpina B4 Bi-Turbo Coupe. Sporting Alpina’s adaptive sport suspension in conjunction with a Switch-Tronic-equipped 8-speed sport-automatic transmission, the B4 Bi-Turbo Coupe pairs a modern straight-six 3 liter engine with a duo of turbochargers – thus creating 410 hp, 442 lb-ft of torque, acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds and a top speed approaching 190 mph. Signature Alpina details include the likes of two elliptical double tailpipes and 20″ wheels, as well as a high-performance braking system that features 14.5″ discs up front and 13.5″ discs in back. Just as impressive as the high-powered, aerodynamic coupe’s exterior – and Lavalina leather-lined interior – is the tuned car’s fuel economy: the B4 is rated at about 31 mpg.

Superyacht Designed by Architector Zaha Hadid


Zha, Jazz Zha, Jazz Zaha-Hadid-Superyacht-02

London architect Zaha Hadid has designed a family of superyachts for German shipbuilders Blohm+Voss. Zaha created a concept for a 128-metre yacht, which informed the design of five smaller vessels engineered by Blohm+Voss. The upper structure of the design is formed from sinuous shapes connecting the different decks. This conceptual language has been pared down and applied to a series of 90-metre-long Unique Circle Yachts, refined so the vessels meet the technical specifications for ocean crossings. “As a dynamic object that moves in dynamic environments, the design of a yacht must incorporate additional parameters beyond those for architecture – which all become much more extreme on water,” said Hadid. “Each yacht is an engineered platform that integrates specific hydrodynamic and structural demands together with the highest levels of comfort, spatial quality and safety.”

2014 Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series


merc-sls-amg-gt-1

According to some recent reports in the German press, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG has seemingly come to the end of the line. The production of the big super-coupe and convertible – which was unveiled in 2009, and launched in the markets in 2010 – will reportedly end in January 2014. However, buyers looking for a brand-new SLS after the end of the vehicle’s production in January will still be able to go in for the top Black Series model, which will probably continue to stay in production till June. Despite the fact that the media reports about the impending discontinuation of the SLS have, thus far, not been confirmed Mercedes AMG, it is widely speculated that the automaker is seemingly preparing to commence the production of its next hero car — likely to be dubbed SLC. The new SLC model – which is internally known at Mercedes AMG as the C190 – will probably be a smaller and lighter vehicle than the SLS. The reason behind the move is the fact that Mercedes AMG is possibly looking to offer a more nimble model which can challenge the Porsche 911. Other than being smaller and lighter as compared to the SLS, the new SLC model will also reportedly be offered with notably different powertrain options; so that a more affordable base model of the car can be provided to the customers.

Facebook Fans Design Their Own Porsche 911


Facebook-Porsche-911

In order to celebrate the fact that the German sportscar maker has hit the 5 million Facebook Friends mark, it invited its virtual pals to design a one-off 911, based on the Carrera 4S platform, and to put features and specifications to the vote. The finished result is an aqua or ‘Facebook’ blue 911 with black and white racing stripes and a fixed rear spoiler. It sits on white 20-inch white alloys and its doors are embellished with the words “5m Porsche Fans”. Inside the illuminated door sills and the aluminum dashboard trim both feature the phrase “personally built by 5 million Porsche fans.” Porsche claims that over 54,000 Facebook fans took part in the design process and, now that the creation phase is over.

Villa F by Hornung and Jacobi


HORNUNG-AND-JACOBI-ARCHITECTURE_VILLA-F-600x437

Located in Rhodes, Greece overlooking the sea, Villa F is a modern holiday residence designed by German based hornung and jacobi Architecture. The house  has a form of a bent rectangular prism facing the sea with open-plan living,  lots of space and natural light. The construction of the building is planned to use prefabricated timber structure finished with white plaster. The lightweight construction was chosen because it will be mainly used as holiday house for short-term visits.

Smart ForTwo Electric Drive by Jeremy Scott


01 02 11

Take a look at the result of collaboration of German vehicle division SMART and fashion designer Jeremy Scott – a limited edition electrified “ForTwo”. This electric vehicle is equipped with wings that illuminate like igniting rockets to form avant-garde rear taillights, the feature becomes the central design element of the car body, accentuating its futuristic approach to transportation. Based on the current production version of the “Smart ForTwo Electric Drive”, it has the capabilities of accelerating from 0-60 km/h (37 mph) in 4.8 seconds, achieving a top speed of 125km/h (78 mph). Its 17.6 kWh lithium-ion battery enables the urban two-seater to travel approximately 145 kilometres in city traffic without producing any local emissions. Painted in bright white, chrome accents in the front headlights and grille, mirror caps, and tridion cell contrast to appear like a ‘glistening jewel’. The interior is outfitted in fine white nappa leather for the instrument panel, seats and door trim while the centre panels in the doors boast extravagant diamond stitching as a further sign of elegance and freedom.

Wooden Carpet.


German textile designer Elisa Strozyk is showcasing her wooden textiles carpet made from veneer offcuts. Her technique in creating this piece is to laser cut the veneer pieces and bond them onto fabric. The wooden carpet can lie flat on the floor, but can also be playfully positioned due to its surprisingly flexible form. Conceptually, her work intends to look at materials in new ways. She is interested in re-evaluating our presumptions about the resources we use, especially as our environmental wealth continually diminishes today.

Futuristic Bike “The Detonator”.


The Cosmic Motors Detonator is an unique concept created by German automotive futurist Daniel Simon for his futuristic vehicle design company, “Cosmic Motors”. Simon calls this futuristic bike a “street cruiser bike built for humanoid droids.” Simon obtained his degree in vehicle design in 2001 at the University of Applied Science in Pforzheim, Germany. After completion, Simon went to Barcelona and designed concept cars for Bugatti and Lamborghini, followed by five years at the VW Group’s Advanced Studio where he is currently designing virtual vehicles for his brand Cosmic Motors. He has published a book, “Comic Motors” and continues to offer his services to premium carmakers while designing his own concepts.

Dupli Casa By J.Mayer H.


This clean gorgeous house called Dupli Casa that was originally built in 1984. Over the years it has had many extensions and modifications. The new building echoes the “family archeology” by duplication and rotation. Lifted up, it creates a semi-public space on ground level between two layers of discretion. The spatial configuration of the villa performs a sophisticated connection between inside and outside and offers spectacular views onto the old town of Marbach and the German national literature archive on the other side of the Neckar valley.

Biegert & Funk’s QLOCKTWO W.


It’s a common desire among everyday folk: we often say we’d like to read more, if only we had the time. While it’s unlikely to fill your noggin with the prose of Hemingway or the poetry of Whitman, a new wristwatch from Biegert & Funk promises to quench your thirst for words and literally provide you with the time. Known as the QLOCKTWO W, the timepiece is a portable revision of the company’s original wall clock, both of which display the current time in everyday language. Priced at €550, the watch is scheduled for arrival this autumn and will be available in black or stainless steel variations, with either rubber or leather bands. As another option, those who find English far too mundane may spring for the Deutsch version. Curious shoppers will find the full PR after the break.

The Mercedes-Benz Furniture Collection.


A while back I reported on a furniture collection by Aston Martin.  Since then it seems like another car company has jumped on the same train.  The new furniture collection by Mercedes-Benz Style will be making its world debut during Milan’s “design week” with a special Fuorisalone event.  The collection is made and distributed worldwide by Formitalia Luxury Group and brings the reality of research and material quality that is inherent in Mercedes automotive products into the home.  The presentation will take place from 16th April till 21st April 2012 at Mercedes-Benz Milano S.p.A., Via Daimler, 1 – 20151 Milano.

The New Electric German Flying Machine.


E-volo, the German team that flew a manned, electric, 16-rotor multicopter last October, will launch a two-seater version this spring — and a commercial model will go on sale in 2013. Fall’s test flight only lasted 90 seconds (video below), but according to E-volo the multicopter is capable of flying for 20 to 30 minutes on a single charge.

Piloted by the physicist-cum-maniac Thomas Senkel, the E-volo Volocopter (VC 1) is basically a scaled up version of a remote-controlled robotic quadcopter or hexacopter. The multicopter obviously has to have space for a human, though — which as you can see in the picture above is a chair attached to a… space hopper.

Each of the 16 rotors is powered by its own lithium-ion battery, and a central computer translates the pilot’s controls into smooth, three-dimensional movement. By default, the multicopter just hangs there, and according to the pilot it is very easy to control. In recent weeks, both the state’s governor and the local mayor have visited the Karlsruhe eMobilitätszentrum, where the Volocopter is on display, and congratulated the E-volo team on their impressive, pioneering work.

The obvious advantage of a multicopter is safety: It has all the benefits of a helicopter, but no overhead rotor — so you can eject and/or parachute to safety. E-volo maintains that the Volocopter is easy to pilot — and indeed, none of the usual factors that make flight complicated (pitch, minimum speed, stall) are present with the Velocopter.

There are plenty of issues, though. First, lithium-ion batteries have excellent power density (power-to-weight), but E-volo will still struggle to increase flight time without a major battery breakthrough. Instead, E-volo suggests a hybrid system with batteries and an internal combustion engine, much like a Toyota Prius. The propellers are an issue too — they need to be protected, which adds weight. Adding a second seat (and another human) also adds a huge amount of weight. As weight goes up, the multicopter’s size and surface area increases (larger motors, larger/more propellers). As you can see in the concept images below, though, the E-volo team is actively working on all of these issues.

As for applications of a commercial multicopter (due in 2013!), well, the only limit is your imagination. They would be fantastic leisure craft, either for puttering around the local countryside or on safari. Imagine going to see Ankgor Wat or the Taj Mahal or the Eiffel Tower, and being able to fly around it. Multicopters would make ideal taxis, too, or ambulances. Ultimately, a multicopter is just a posh jet pack — and who hasn’t dreamt of flying around with a jet pack?  There is no word on how much the commercial Volocopter will cost, but the parts are fairly inexpensive — we could be in for a pleasant surprise.
