The Architecture of People

The Architecture of People

Most of architect Kevin Haley’s stories seem to begin in a pub, so naturally we asked him to chat over a beer while he was in town working on a special project with some local students.

Chandeliers of Sicily

Chandeliers of Sicily

The creativity and the craftsmanship on display in churches across Sicily was beyond everything I had imagined. They quite often leave literally leave no spot unadorned, which makes it thoroughly rewarding to take time for exploring dark corners and to strain your neck looking above your head. One of the things that particularly caught my eye were the […]

Kinematics Dress

Kinematics Dress

For all the talk of wearables and their infinite potential to revolutionize your style game, innovation on that front has so far amounted to 1) fitness trackers, 2) watches of dubious utility and 3) gimmicky eyewear that cries out for punches to the face. While the fitness trackers are a welcome addition to the mainstream tech […]

You Have Too Much Shit

You Have Too Much Shit

Chris Thomas has a simple message for you: you have too much shit. The UK-based designer’s latest project is a punchy little self-help manual to help you wade through the clutter of your modern life. One part Thoreau’s Walden, one part Adam Mansbach’s Go the F*ck to Sleep, YHTMS makes a pretty convincing case for ditching […]

With an education in architecture and a body of work that spans installation, fiber, and performance art, sculpture, design, architecture, and music, the Brooklyn-based polymath creates multimedia pieces that could just as easily be set on a bookshelf as they could be lived in as a temporary sitting room. […]

20Y HORT

20Y HORT

This year, our friends and Human Being Journal alumni HORT turn twenty. That’s the big two-oh—two decades that the venerable Berlin outfit have been pushing creative buttons, stretching the limits of collaborative process and just creating straight stellar work. HORT is marking the occasion with an exhibition, 20Y HORT, at KK Outlet in east London. Rather than career-spanning retrospective, the show […]

Dirty Furniture

Dirty Furniture

While design and its role in human society are immense, its general discourse has for far too long been two-sided and too narrow. Nowhere has this been more evident than in the assortment of titles that are ostensibly authorities on design. On the one hand, we have those that lionize and fetishize the culture of […]

Introducing: Wolfgar Handmade

Introducing: Wolfgar Handmade

Wolfgar Handmade was created almost by accident. Founded in 2012 by Joseph Wolfgar Coleman, the semi-eponymous, Jacksonville-based line was created from the scrap wood left over from the renovation of a 1916 craftsman-style house. “Curiosity led me to see what I could make from this hodgepodge of leftover materials,” Coleman says. “The end result was […]

She explores new technologies in order to create environmentally healthy products, too. We talked to Ms. Mociun about how she got into handmade jewelry and what’s next on her […]

Introducing: Jasmin Shokrian

Introducing: Jasmin Shokrian

No matter how perfect and clear early summer is in the South (where we’re at), it always undoubtedly evolves into oppressive heat and swampy humidity. It is these times that our minds turn to Los Angeles, the land land of milk and honey (and clear sunshine and endless juice bar options). Los Angeles-based designer Jasmin Shokrian […]
