Top 5 Archive — 03

What’s this?

Before our Tip 5 there was our Top 5. These are the archived pages from our 5 weekly hot tips from yesteryear.

1: Kirb your enthusiasm.

Is it real? Is it fake? And yes, what’s real anyway and what isn’t in Kylie Jenner’s plastic world? Deep philosophical questions… Anyway, Kylie is the youngest billionaire in the world, you might already know that. But did you also know that she has a little brother? His name is Kirby. At least that’s what he claims.

Have fun with Kirby!

2: Bread that’s all about the Kernel

Konel bread for your eyes.

OK, this is Japanese so it’s hard to follow, but we think it’s the bomb. Bread-school Konel bakes sandwiches that become great the moment you cut them open. If you are ever in Machida City, Tokyo, you will find Konel (closest station Tsurukawa Station on the Odakyu Line).

3: Nelson Molina. Curator of our daily life.

Nice short documentary (9 min.)

What a beautiful portrait of Nelson Molina by Nicholas Heller! (Watch all his movies by the way, they're great!) Molina is a garbage collector in New York and curator of a junk collection. Waste. garbage. At first glance, a collection of junk. But actually this is a collection that says a lot about this time. It is not unlikely that more people will queue for this in the future than for any Monet, Manet or Van Gogh. Just guessing, a beautiful portrait anyway.

4: Don’t look now, but there’s a jellyfish behind you.

Under. Water.

Oh how nice, when what happens on your plate is at least as adventurous as what happens around you. Under. An underwater restaurant with a whopper of a window for a mesmerizing view. No doubt thousands of architects and dreamers have had that idea before, but no one has actually realized it. At least not like these Norwegian kings did. Snohetta that is.

5: Your TV as window on the world?

A new kind of display cabinet

Three of us visited the IFA in Berlin earlier this week (where our client One For All is also present every year). At this fair you will find halls full of electronic news. The most imaginative product was the Vitrine, a transparent OLED television developed by Daniel Rybakken and Panasonic Design. At first glance it seems like a nonsense product, but it is fascinating to see this device in real life. The first TV that is worth watching/through even when it is off.
