Don Café House by Innarch


Innarch have designed the Don Café House in Pristina, Kosovo. The idea / inspiration for the design derives from sack filled with coffee grains. The walls of the bar are organically shaped and colored like coffee sack made up of “Plywood” type of wood, whereby the pillars in between are coated with textile coffee sacks. Tables and hanging chandeliers represent the coffee grains lined up asymmetrically in order to generate the impression of being inside a coffee sack. The separating wall has a double function; decorative and functional. Its organic shape consists the most dominant part of the premise enabling a unique feeling of sitting unlike any other one comes across in everyday life. Each of the plywood element was designed individually.

19-Year-Old Invents Way To Clean The Ocean Of Plastic Garbage


One of the ongoing environmental disasters you may or may not be aware of is all the plastic floating in the oceans. There’s literally tons of it and, fun fact, it’s slowly poisoning us. Boyan Slat, though, a 19-year-old college student, has a fairly innovative idea to solve the problem. Essentially, he’ll use large booms and giant funnels to do the job. The device consists of an anchored network of floating booms and processing platforms that could be dispatched to garbage patches around the world. Instead of moving through the ocean, the array would span the radius of a garbage patch, acting as a giant funnel. The angle of the booms would force plastic in the direction of the platforms, where it would be separated from plankton, filtered and stored for recycling. Slat’s Ocean Cleanup Array would do a lot more than just keep organic pollutants out of your sushi. Millions of dollars in tourism could be collected and a lot of boat damage could be stopped by hauling all this plastic out of the water. Of course, this solution has to be built: Currently it’s just some clever engineering on paper and some computer models.

The visual identity of Helsinki Design Week changes every year. In 2012 the theme was co-creation. Their is an old game invented by the Surrealists called the ‘cadavre exquis’. A folded piece of paper is passed around a table, each person draws their own part without seeing what else has been drawn. The end result is somethings more interesting than the sum of its parts. The identity is based on this idea of co-creation.
