Check out their new design: ”The Panther”. It’s one 8’x4’plywood board cut in 2’by 2’ module, joined with finger joins and organized in 3 independent self-supporting wood elements. The elements work structurally when are compressed to each other with a nylon tighten cable. Pyramidal sound-proof foam as cushion. No nails no glue no screws.

He quit using spray paint a couple of years ago and now he is using white tape to project his creativity on the streets and walls of Melbourne. He puts extra thought into where to put his amazing graffiti art, he always seems to find the perfect place for his pieces. With the city as his canvas he legally gets to show the world his unique style of art. He plays around with architecture and the city streets in a new innovative creative way.
Our fellow Dutchies Viktor & Rolf, showed their collection @ the Paris Fashion Week last week. We’re proud to say that we’re from Amsterdam and part of that might have something to do with V&R. Amsterdam once was only famous for legalized soft drugs and prostitution. But now we’re internationally known for architecture, design and fashion. Don’t you agree with us that V&R did a great job on their SS10 collection…

In the trend of being Dutch and proud of it, we decided to post about another Dutch talent getting internationally far.
As amazing as the favelas in Rio, Rem Koolhaas the architect from OMA has designed an even bigger awe-ing project. The Prada Transformer in Seoul, Korea.
Scheduled to open at the end of March, the Prada Transformer will stage a range of art, cinema, culture and fashion events though August. the 65-ft. high tetrahedron is composed of four different shapes, a hexagon, cross, rectangle and circle.
It is certainly an ambitious project as the Transformer is scheduled to open this week. A mix of everything nice in a supercool building. The building is set to shift it shape every other time period just like a transformer.
We from BB especially find this cool, because of the mix of fashion, art and awesome innovative exposition developments! Looking for to see how the structure transforms once it opens!
