Vox Gigs Cover (Dec 2017)

Posted on Categories selected works, graphicTags , , , , ,

There are two things attracted us immediately when we received the mail post from coco.

One was the seal ‘航空 PAR AVION’, it’s so good looking. We’ve only seen the blue sticker with ‘AIR MAIL’. It’s just not comparable with the red seal on the kraft paper. Chinese with French in great typeface, super. Just beautiful.

Arch within Arch (GB1610384.8) (2013-16): A telescopic structure (1a, 1b and 1c) operates on a sliding mechanism (2) and moves to expose the overlaying arch viaduct (3) and permit periodic servicing – addressing a legal requirement that restricts ixtures within the arch. The structure is mobile and formed of sandwiching construction for acoustic and thermal insulation (4). This structure is isolated on vibration pads (5) and loats off the ground to absorb the vibration from passing trains. A solar reflective foil (6) works with sun paths to collect, reflect and amplify daylight and naturally illuminate the dark interior spaces. © Undercurrent Architects

Despite name and appearance, they have nothing in common.

Granted Calendar

Posted on Categories selected works, productTags , , , ,

People write plans on calendar. That’s why many calendars leave space for writing. But it’s boring. That’s why you only do it on the first 2-3 days every year:

1 January: Change myself this year
2 January: Must write down my plan everyday

A horror story: Imagine you are 100 years old and you take out 100(-6) different looking calendars and found the same thing written on the same place, while the rest were left empty.
