The love box

Posted on | February 20, 2014

This year Valentine’s Day was somehow special in Paris. It wasn’t just for those to celebrate who connect the day with romantic love; couples, lovers, people who are fond of someone. It offered very fast support to those who fell in love with someone at first sight. Which can practically happen on every street corner in Paris – as we know. The Flower Council Holland distributed 1500 ‘In Case of Love’ emergency cases carrying a beautiful red rose throughout Paris in crowded, and well-known romantic areas. “In case you meet your love at first sight, it’s easy to make it known. Just break the glass and take the flower. The only thing you have to do yourself is to declare your love.” Cute.

Crane Lake

Posted on | February 15, 2014

A revolutionary event took place this evening in Vienna’s new district to be, called Seestadt Aspern. In 2028, 20.000 citizens will have found a new home only a half an hour subway ride away from Vienna’s St. Stephan’s dome. On the largest construction site in Austria, 43 cranes performed on a former airfield of 21 hectares what the organizers called the largest crane ballet on earth. The music was specially composed for the show tonight, Symphony sounds combined with electro tunes accompanied the 20-minute choreography.

Posted on | January 29, 2014

I recently walked by this awesome light installation that was exposed in the passage of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. I met one of the artists, Onne Walsmit who gave me details about this urban intervention which was one of the higlights of this year’s Amsterdam Light Festival.

The lightwork is designed by ‘Venividimultiplex’, an artist collective, consisting of Joost van Bergen, Dirk Schlebusch and Onne Walsmit. It was sponsored by InventDesign and DHL Express.

The interactive arch determines the ‘strongest’ cyclists. Attached to the arch are… Read more

 

 

Peter Gibson aka Roadsworth

Posted on | February 6, 2013

Street Artist ROADSWORTH (born in Toronto) is known from spray-painting bicycle paths onto streets. What people might not know is what seems to be en vogue around the globe at present: Street artists who used to face high fines for their illegal artyfication of streets and walls in the public space, seem to get off with lenient sentences and now do more and more commissioned art work in cities –> i.e. they are hired and paid by different stakeholders (galleries, private investors, etc) and their work is accepted by municipalities.

  

   

Over the last decade, Gibson has moved from spray-painting to stencilled street art, his images ranging from bird nests to prehistoric fish and flowers:

Urban Experience Project # 2 in Neu Marx

Posted on | November 27, 2012

Cows in Jackets goes Christmas. We (Concept/Idea: Daniela Krautsack – Execution: Gudrun Lenk-Wane with Albert Huspeka – Assistance: Marilen Hennebach – Graphic Design: Roland Kalusa) designed the coolest X-Mas caravan that serves punch & hot spiced wine in Vienna’s Media Quarter Neu Marx recently. Oh, and we decorated the near-by tree that looks a bit sad without its leaves. And we baked cookies. And already made Neu Marx’ employees laugh on our launch evening. 3 weeks of home-made stuff. Yumm. We love jobs that make us combine design — decoration — and culinary delights.

Our ‘tree of lamps’:
