Hedgerows Provide an Important Climate Solution

A trademark of the English garden, the hedgerow provides more than privacy and represents more than a cliche; the humble shrub offers an important climate solution. Britain already boasts 310,000 miles of hedgerow, but the Climate Change Committee (an independent entity based in the UK, founded under the Climate Change Act 2008) suggests planting 40% more by 2050, as they “slow down the runoff of water, …

Word of Mouth: Scottsdale

Architectural wonders, dining concepts, expeditions in the sky and hikes across the desert landscape Settled in a picturesque portion of the Sonoran Desert, Scottsdale, Arizona‘s sunny days and year-round warmth have attracted visitors (and transplants) for decades now.

SpaceBok, the Robot Being Designed to Walk on Mars

Wheels may be a more stable means to roam around the challenging terrain of Mars, but they limit where robots can go.

Thus, scientists from Switzerland’s ETH Zurich and Germany’s Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research have developed distinct robotic legs on their small quadrupedal …

Noah Chenfeld: Special Excess

NYC-based recording artist Noah Chenfeld returns with “Special Excess,” a dreamy indie-pop track about “coming of age, just a little late.” Directed by DXVI Designs’ Jeff O’Neill, the official music video finds quiet moments of beauty and isolation, often around modes of transportation in the city. Chenfeld tells us the track “is the first of several singles I plan on releasing this year, all of which …

Anyday’s Microwave Cookware

Four bowls with features designed to enhance the capabilities of the countertop appliance While neither new nor fancy, the microwave is one of Anyday founder Steph Chen’s favorite appliances. Pots and pans for ovens and stoves are too numerous to count, but there aren’t many cookware collections designed especially for the microwave—despite them inhabiting 90% of kitchens. Chen aimed to change that through Anyday, with the …

Model One Fang

From James Yip and Lucas DiPietrantonio’s footwear brand NERA, the Model One Fang looks to classic car culture for design inspiration but channels the values of historic Italian craftsmanship. The limited run Model One pairs 100% Italian lamb suede with nylon and a toothy neoprene heel. It’s not all style, though, as the brand is predicated on comfort and advancements in technical engineering.

Comparing the Electric Mustang Mach-E + Bronco Sport

Two very different vehicles underpinned by the same design thinking Ford‘s all-new Mustang Mach-E and Bronco Sport have more in common than meets the eye. Though the appearance of the two vehicles differs, it’s the thinking behind them that tells us plenty about Ford’s current approach to car design—one fueled by not only a need to compete with other brands in the space, but also …
