Minimalist lifestyle brand, MUJI, unveiled MUJI Huts at Tokyo Design Week! The micro living spaces cater to simple and (presumably) mostly solitary pleasures. 3 different designers came up with 3 distinct types of huts: Naoto Fukasawa (Wooden Hut), Jasper Morrison (Cork Hut), and Konstantin Grcic (Aluminum Hut). Set to hit the market in 2017 at 3-5 million yen or $30,000 – $50,000 CND, check out more images below! Or, if you live in Vancouver, just head straight to the comments and rant about housing prices!
For his installation, “Tube,” New York-based artist Zilvinas Kempinas stretched strips of VHS tape to create an 80 foot long walkway. More hypnotic images below!
Experimental, interactive technology from MIT’s Tangible Media Group. Led by Professor Hiroshi Ishii, TMG is concerned with Tangible User Interface (TUI) and bridging the gap between the physical and digital world. In less complicated terms, LineFORM is basically a robotic line that can change shape! Check out the video below to see some cool potential uses for this technology!
Love the vibe of this animated video by Barcelona-based studio Manson and artist Pau Sampera for Extrarradio’s “Devolverla Mejorada”. Watch it below.
Noon yesterday, Shia LaBeouf started a movie marathon. He is watching every movie he’s ever made in reverse chronological order, over the course of 72 hours at the Angelika Film Center. Visitors are welcome to join him (admission is free). If you don’t live in New York you can watch a live stream of his face watching his own face here on New Hive (I streamed it for a bit and he looked very tired and bored).
This is real. The work is being presented as a performance art piece by his collective, LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner, entitled #ALLMYMOVIES.
John John Florence is the best surfer on the planet and this looks like the greatest surf film ever made. DAMN. Watch the trailer for award-winning studio Brain Farm’s “View From A Blue Moon” (the first surf film shot entirely in 4k) below.
