Norway Passport

Neue Norwegian Passport Neue Norwegian Passport Neue Norwegian Passport Oslo based studio, Neue, has been awarded the task of redesigning the Norwegian passport. I'm not sure if these designs are final, or if it's just concept, but they're wonderful. More governments should embrace great design like this, especially the US.

Il Capo

This is an excerpt on NOWNESS from the documentary, Il Capo (The Chief) by Italian filmmaker Yuri Ancarani. The film follows a marble quarry boss who uses simple hand gestures to guide his crew. The topic is fascinating, but what strikes me the most about the excerpt is the wonderful aesthetics created by mixing the beautiful landscape, excellent cinematography, and a super minimal sound design. All you hear are the sounds of the machinery and the massive marble blocks being extracted. It's all wonderful and worth a look. Via Kottke

Hartmut Esslinger

Hartmut Esslinger Wega Hartmut Esslinger Wega Hartmut Esslinger Wega Hartmut Esslinger is a German industrial designer who founded Frog, and is mostly known for creating the Snow White look for Apple during the 80s. I personally love the designs that he did for German audio and visual manufacturer Wega, which eventually became part of Sony. The aesthetic has a bit of the Braun/Rams feel to it, but it's also very unique. More organic and fluid. But you can clearly see that Esslinger and Rams had the same approach to product design during those days. Seeing wonderful product design like this always makes me wonder why aren't more designers/companies designing like this. Apple has proven that consumers appreciate beautiful, minimal design, so why do we see so much ugly shit? I don't understand.
