Gacha, the Muji shuttle bus for all weather conditions

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

It was officially presented a few days ago, Gacha, the project on which are working in collaboration Muji, the Japanese multinational with a simple and sophisticated design, and Sensible 4, a Finnish company specializing in the creation of autonomous vehicles.

The project is visionary and futuristic because Gacha will be the first shuttle bus in the world designed to circulate in any weather condition. Unlike other automotive companies, which test their products in warm countries, Sensible 4 has carried out tests on this new technology in Lapland, a region where, in the middle of winter, temperatures can drop to -35 degrees Celsius.

If the Sensible 4 team took care of the technological side, Muji thought of aesthetics. The design of the small Gacha has no marked lines or sharp shapes, on the contrary, the shuttle bus has neither the front nor the rear, thus reducing everything to a parallelepiped on wheels. The Japanese company also focused its attention on the internal elements, which perfectly follow the shapes of the structure.

The official presentation of the first Gacha will take place in March 2019 in Helsinki.

Yoki Treehouse, the perfect tree house that you can rent

Yoki Treehouse, the perfect tree house that you can rent

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

Whether you are a child or an adult, the tree houses are fascinating at any age. The idea of living embraced by branches, hearing the sound of leaves moved by the wind and, especially away from everything has always had a magic touch. But forget about the refuges you had or dreamed of as children because Will Beilharz‘s Yoki Treehouse has nothing to envy to any other house.

The American architect who specializes in these types of buildings has literally surpassed himself, creating a tree house consisting of two parts, the first and main part consists of the living room, kitchen, and bedroom, the second and smaller houses the bathroom.

What makes the house even more special is the fact that it is built at a height of seven meters, entirely surrounded by balconies and rope bridges that connect the two volumes, also under it flows a stream. Yoki Treehouse is completely immersed in nature, an hour’s drive from Austin, Texas, and if you come by there, you can rent it for a perfect weekend getaway.

Crazy and colorful style in Cloud Nine’s graphics

Crazy and colorful style in Cloud Nine’s graphics

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Design

Cloud Nine is the name of the Instagram profile that publishes very “cool” graphics with bright colors. The artist lives and works in New York and is inspired by the style of SLⓘME, subverting the normal balances of the human figure, where rainbows sprout strongly from all sides, the heads explode like fireworks and laser beams come out of the eyes.

Everything seems to contribute to the creation of a surreal atmosphere, suspended between the world as we know it and that which is hidden in the subconscious, which often does not find a rational response. Art becomes a way to free creativity and the wildest side of humanity.

Follow Cloud Nine on Instagram and take a look at the gallery.

The absurd digital combinations of 360brain

The absurd digital combinations of 360brain

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

The art of digital collages, of making combinations of different objects creating surprising optical effects seems to be more and more in vogue and Instagram seems the perfect way to exhibit your works. Artem Pozdniakov, in art 360brain also uses his Instagram profile as a gallery where he can show all his creations.

Like others before him, such as Les Creatonautes, Randy Lewis and Lea Brisell, 360brain makes visual associations between different objects and elements by creating a third, all new and unsettling. For most of his works, he combines a food, such as eggs, wine or coffee, making it a totally different and surreal object.

This aspect further underlines the power of digital art to create something totally invented, but so realistic as to seem true, so much so that we doubt our eyes.

MarxIto, minimalist design meets the simplicity of food

MarxIto, minimalist design meets the simplicity of food

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

When two geniuses collaborate on a project, the result can only be sensational. This is what happened in Paris, which recently saw the opening of MarxIto, the brand new street food restaurant created by bringing together the chef Thierry Marx and the very young and talented architect Ora Ito.

MarxIto has opened a stone’s throw from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysées and is the promoter of a beautiful cuisine, good and accessible to all.

The main dish is precisely the marxito, a happy encounter between French and Japanese food culture, it is a kind of sandwich formed by two pancakes and filled with different products of organic origin.

The cultural contamination that takes place within the menu is found in the care of the interior, edited by Ora Ito.

The young architect and designer for MarxIto has thought of soft colors, with pastel tones. To make the place much larger optically, an entire wall has been completely covered with mirrors. But the highlight of the room is an infinite table that descends from the ceiling to become counters on which to eat.
