skal is media player designed for the home that links physical objects to related digital content on
a television. the project is designed by jørn knutsen, einar sneve martinussen and timo arnall.
skal, norwegian for bowl, centers around a wooden bowl that is equipped with an RFID reader.
the bowl links to a television which displays different content when different RFID enabled objects
are place in the bowl. for example, when a small plush toy is placed in the bowl, it could activate
a cartoon with that same character in it. in addition to video, skal can be programmed to control all
kinds of digital media including youtube channels, flickr photo streams, home videos or even online
radio stations.

More Nike. . .


Nike on the Bowery

The new nike gallery/store in New York on the bowery, called the Bowery Stadium, the first installation is a celebration of Brazilian football.

This is one of the reason why Nike are just awesome! despite all the crap they do, in cities like New York, Tokyo and Paris they are changing they way people see stores and bringing the gallery store to a wider audience..

Marteen Baas

Marteen Baas has created a new collection for Mitterrand and Cramer. Using a pigment resin on a steel frame these new pieces are distinctively Baas, wonderfully playful and the clay like material plays with the preconceptions of materials and process.
