• Teenage Engineering’s OD-11 speaker has been stuck in “coming soon” limbo for a couple years now. After appearing at the past two Consumer Electronic Shows, blowing a Summer 2013 launch date, and going on pre-order last fall, this white block of almost-vaporware finally materialized at the MoMa Design Store in New York last week. And while you won’t need to be a Scandinavian audiophile to enjoy this Swedish speaker, you will need a sufficiently padded bank account. First, some history. Stig Carlsson isn’t a household name here in the U.S., but a generation of Hi-Fi-oriented Swedes grew up buying and listening to his speakers. Working for Sonab, the audio engineer designed some remarkable (and truly weird looking) speakers during the ’60s and ’70s. Some were shaped like cannons; others had curved tweeter arrays and strange woofer configurations. These designs were all informed by the audio engineer’s (still controversial) philosophy, which basically amounts to this: Loud speakers should be made and tuned for real-world listening rooms, not some perfectly dampened anechoic environment. Carlsson called this ortho acoustics, and crafted his speakers to spew sound in all directions, purposefully bouncing it off couches, walls, ceilings, and other modern day furnishings.

Istanbul Railway Network Map (İstanbul Raylı Sistemler Ağ Haritası) by Bertan Kılıçcıoğlu

Print

As a designer, Istanbul’s subway map has been bugging me for a long time. It may have been a quite decent design when first introduced, but additions made over the years have lacked the same quality. As the new lines were introduced, they started overlapping and the map became cluttered. A new map, designed with the proposed lines in mind, was needed. But we only got new lines shoved into the…

  • Do you want to know the real reason why there’ so much violence in the Middle-East? This animation by Nina Paley is one of the most beautiful, accurate and true cartoons we ever seen! A masterpiece! The animation makes it clear why there can be no clear “winners” over this land. Time to end the bloodshed and seek peace through compromise and cooperation.
