This Week’s 6 – Bridging the Gap between Spage Age and Modern Human Existance

This week’s 6 pours yet another layer of concrete over the notion that we, the people, are becoming only more and more fascinated by the great unknown. We’re embracing a space-age mentality that fills voids in our quest for unlocking universal truth, our need for constant evolution, and our affinity for all things state-of-the-art and cutting edge.

Man on Mars? Or is it just a rock?

As I do everyday, I awoke to CNN this morning, but today it was a recap of Anderson Cooper’s coverage of a “man on mars”, as depicted in photography taken by Nasa’s Mars Rover, That little robot that will crawl Mars’ surface for infinity. While the authenticity of the photograph is undisputed, the depicted subject matter is certainly up for debate. Is it a man? Or is it a rock? You decide. If it is indeed the latter, we still face an important question, given the recent media attention given to last week’s “UFO sightings” in Texas. Is the media becoming more obsessed with the idea of extra-terrestrial life? Or is it simply becoming more conscious of the notion that we’re not alone?

Unlocking universal truth is certainly at the forefront of Virgin’s grand plan. Today, they unveiled their design for what they are calling, ‘Virgin Galactic Tourist Spaceship.’ Launching this summer through a series of tests, “2008 will be the year of the spaceship,” according to Virgin Group founder Richard Branson. (Be sure to check out the folding egg chair seating inside)

For those who simply won’t be able to afford the ticket to outer space, Globus Artifort provides another way to escape into the space age, with their ultra-slick Mobile Office Pod. Featuring a slick design consisting of a ball that opens into a workstation, this Pod is sure to hit the contract market sooner or later and provide a public solution for professionals on the go tending to personal matters.

Globus Artifort Mobile Office Pod

There’s no argument over people’s growing fascination of anything pod-like. The pod universally speaks to the human soul of another place—a place somewhere between the future and a not-so-distant past. Perhaps this place is here and now. Becoming increasingly popular are pod-like hearths from above. Available in different styles from different manufacturers, these fireplaces actually give the illusion that aliens have landed in your living room. It’s roots in the otherworld make for an astonishing centerpiece that works surprisingly well in any style of living space.

Suspended Fireplaces

The Pod form has also proven time and again to offer as much in the way of function, portability and convenience as it has in stylish relevance to everyday life. A perfect example is the pod-shaped Eggo from Brazilian appliance company Brastemp. The Eggo is essentially a portable washing machine for your time-sensitive laundering needs, and resembles a friendly little android ready and willing to do laundry. Great for apartment use, or for people without the time, energy, or quarters to keep a clean stash, this pod definitely fills yet another void in modern living.

Brastemp Eggo

The Vistosi Diadema ceiling lamp takes a completely different approach to satisfying our craving for space age in the home. Quite arguably the polar opposite of the pod, this chandelier embraces the rod. Through repetition of beautifully transparent hand-crafted glass tubes, the Diadema conjures up images of the home planet of the world’s favorite red-cape wearing super-hero.

6 Ways to Bring in 2008


Watchismo

Originally designed in 1973 by famed French transportation and furniture designer, Roger Tallon, a true visionary, the “Addict” is part of his Mach 2000 watch series. Featuring a modern makeover, this space-age timepiece is manufactured by LIP and is available at www.watchismo.com



Aptera

We all love the Jetsons. Now you can become one. Aptera proves that retro-space age design has never been more relevant to today’s needs. A small company with a big mission, Aptera’s goal is to create the world’s most fuel efficient vehicle yet with stylish appeal, a fun factor and a major emphasis on safety. The future is here…reserve yours today at www.aptera.com (approximately $28,000 USD)

Hara Chair
In the spirit of mid-century pioneers like Eero Aarnio and Verner Panton, the Hara chair was designed by Josh Rubin for Italian manufacturer, Kundilini. Having had the chance to sample this piece personally, I can say that it is every bit comfortable and form-fitting
as it is stylish.


Copacabana Guitar by Eero Aarnio

Yes, THE Eero Aarnio. I’ve never bought an axe without jamming on it first, but this COULD be the exception. These are built by Swedish luthier, Mr. Lottonen. While his website is in Swedish, I can only gather that a lot of love goes into building these. I wonder what a CopaBucker pickup sounds like.

Globo (Outdoor) Bubbles of Light
I was deep into world 1, level 3, of “Super Mario Brothers’ – The Lost Levels”, the original 1986 Japanese release, which is now available for download on the Wii, when my wife urged me to pause the game and then shoved THIS (above) in my face. What I then experienced was what some of us refer to as “a moment.” All of the little mushroom people, flying ducks and goombatroopas seemed to have been given real meaning, in the context of modern design. Hence, the Globo (Outdoor) Bubbles of Light by Viso is perhaps the most fun, invigorating way to render your backyard. I’m in. Soon available at inmod.com


Ferm Living

Designed and manufactured in Denmark, Ferm Living has got some really cool wallpaper, ranging from floral patterns to abstract motifs, retro patterns to custom designs. Also available are Wall Stickers (shown), that are simple to apply and easily removeable. These are more illustrative, covering a wider array of subject matter, like world maps, animals, fingerprints, and if you love pop art as much as us, they are definitely worth the price tag.

The Orbit Gallery

Schmoozing with veteran pop art guru and dealer Harry Saylor is always a blast, and while schmoozing is always more fun after a few cocktails, I finally had the chance to do both at the “Holiday in the Park” art show in Edgewater, NJ a few weeks ago. If you’re a pop art enthusiast dwelling on the east coast and don’t already know Harry, you definitely should.

Visit his Orbit Gallery, also in the happening Hudson River-side city of Edgewater, and aside from meeting a hell of a guy, you’ll be greeted by amazing works of what Harry refers to as “the Warhols and Picassos of today.” Harry has a long history in dealing Warhols and Picassos, and if his word isn’t enough, simply look around and lose yourself in a colorful abyss that lies somewhere between vintage-psychedelic and cartoon-pop. You’ll see “the hot new names of POP” like Shag, Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, and Robbie Busch (one of my favorites) on display alongside the likes of Keith Haring and Andy Warhol.

Joe Colombo

Joe Colombo

Joe Colombo, Italian designer, painter, architect, filmmaker et cetra had a noble impact on the field of Space Age design.  Credited for such inventions as the “boby trolley” and the “tube chair” many of his contributions to the design community and futurist movement are widely respected.  Colombo worked for several high end furniture companies including Bernini, Stilnovo, Kartell, and the like.  His award winning designs have been internationally exhibited.

Tube Chair

Colombo utilized injected molded plastic and contemporary material to create an array of elegant and imaginative pieces.  Colombo had an affinity for interiors as well.  Previously studying architecture in Milan, his ergonomic sensibility was complimented by his funky far-out vision.  This was apparent in his installation at the Vitra Design Museum.

Vitra Design Museum

Joe Colombo died at the age of 41 yet left behind a legacy of exquisite innovations for aesthethic productivity. His work can be seen at the permanent exhibition of mid century modern furniture at the MoMA.
