“Menu from the new wild” by industrial designer Alexandra Fruhstorfer is a culinary concept solution targeting two major problems: protecting our native biodiversity from invasive species and offering new food resources for our growing population.
Through a special dining experience, Alexandra provokes discussions about global ecological changes and human role within it. “Do we have to change our paradigms of consumption if we want to protect what we consider to be our ‘pristine’ nature? Or is this only a late justification of our own ecological mess? How do we even define ‘nature’ in the age of the anthropocene?”
Using molecules to spice up gastronomic experiences, Russian-German food designer Alexandra Genis proves that not everything artificial is unsustainable, as she eliminates the need to transport produce around the world.

SAM is a Symbiotic Autonomous Machine, designed by French-Dutch designers Marie Caye and Arvid Jense, but not owned by them. SAM produces soda made from Waterkefir and sells it. Since he can’t taste the flavour of his produced soda, he adds his Twitter account to the receipt given at purchase, where he asks customers to rate the flavour online in order to adjust the recipe.
He uses the money earned to employ humans to work for him. Notions of profit, or even greed, are superfluous and SAM produces at cost, reimburses debt and pays bills as a single economic entity. Since our current society does not give agency yet to non-human commercial entities, he rent’s Marie’s identity to be able to get registered at the Chamber of Commerce.

Industrial Design, for me, lies in understanding the meaningful contributions to our environments that designers make manifest through the tangible experience. This may come in the form of a clever understanding and manipulation of a material’s unique properties, a knowledge of how our designs can positively respond to the unique constraints of an ever-changing world, or perhaps, a narrative that comes along with an object that could prompt a more thoughtful experience beyond that of just use. In any case, industrial design is a thoughtful engagement with the built environment through the use of materials, production methods, understanding of context and the responsibility that comes along with the making of anything.

Semikolon is inseparably linked to Günther Dezlhofer, who developed the first collection of blank books and boxes with solid-coloured linen covers in 1988 at his atelier at Lake Starnberg, following many years of professional experience in distributing stationery products. The brand Semikolon was born.
Today the concept behind Semikolon is to create a series of complementary stationery products in a variety of contemporary colours.
The Semikolon design and colour system is intended to give customers the opportunity to combine and collect any desired photo albums, notebooks and decorative storage boxes from the collection. The colour palette has been consistently developed and updated throughout Semikolon’s almost 30-year history.
At the same time Semikolon products are still manufactured according to the same methods introduced by Dezlhofer in 1988. Each product is handmade. This hallmarks the timeless design approach of the brand and demonstrates that success is not necessarily due to following passing trends. Semikolon is a true modern classic.

Sharon W. Huget is a Canadian visual artist. Working in acrylic and mixed media, she creates contemporary compositions that are abstractions of both the real and imagined. Through the use of colour, texture and graphite renderings, her paintings suggest the uncertain interception of human experience with what is unknown, allusive and transcendent. Inspired by natural and architectural forms, the sketchy, incomplete structures and markings allude to distant places and times both unknown and yet familiar. The evocative visual narrative remains obscure, inviting viewers to explore with attentive contemplation.In collaboration with other artists and clients, SWHuget ART & DESIGN creates custom printed textiles from original artworks and personal artifacts for luxury home design and clothing. Proudly Canadian, her home and clothing designs are ethically manufactured on demand in Canada.

The Jacquard loom and player piano share roots in punch card technology, both utilizing perforated cards to interpret pattern. This piece is a translation of pattern in cloth and sound.Drawing upon the common history of these processes, the cloth and sound share the same code. The music was composed using a midi roll, a digital equivalent to a player piano punch card, and the cloth woven using a modern Jacquard loom. Put through their respective machines, the static sets of relationships garner hauntingly distinct identities. The same “ethereal” code assumes different concrete forms. The music is atmospheric and recursive, a testament to the interconnection between technologies. As a viewer, this becomes reflective of the passive relationships that we share with the technologies themselves.

Art and Design are part insight, part inspiration, and a lot – of invention. In my studio, accidents happen, and that moves my work forward. I work to develop original works – avoiding trends and following the direction of the work – in the moment. My colourful works reflect my LOVE OF COLOUR AND DESIGN. Works are held in private and public collections worldwide.
My background is in fashion, design and illustration, as well of course, in fine art.
I found a muse in Gray Magazine (Seattle) which covers interiors, architecture, fashion, art and design. The well written cover headline/story, and the beautiful photograph completely inspired me. The image reminded me of Frida Kahlo, and the fashion designer Paloma Hurtado, had a great story. The headline read, “When you come as an immigrant to the U.S., you develop a thick skin. It drives you to be successful. Each painting in this ongoing series has this common ‘thread’. To me the photo encompassed so much. Beauty. History. Struggle. Colour. Inspiration. I hope when you see these paintings you will feel what I felt. The series continues to grow and evolve – 21+ paintings later.
They are so much more than VIOLETS, they tell a STORY.
