Chance of Thunderstorms
The Cloud by Richard Clarkson is an interactive lamp and speaker system, designed to mimic a thundercloud in both appearance and entertainment. Using motion sensors the cloud detects a user’s presence and creates a unique lightning and thunder show dictated by their movement. The system features a powerful speaker system from which the user can stream music via any Bluetooth compatible device. Using color-changing lights the cloud is able to adapt to the desired lighting color and brightness. The cloud also has alternative modes such as a nightlight and music reactive mode.

Ideas for the materiality of the soles are for example plastic inspired acrylate, silicone or rubber, concrete- and plaster-like materials, fluid, foam or slime.
Transparency plays a big role and has various degradations. The idea book Invasion Of The Foot Carrier is an inspirational vision meant for the footwear industry.

mandy roos knits trichophilia undergarments to celebrate body hair
or her graduate project at the design academy eindhoven, mandy roos has created ‘trichophilia’, a fashion collection which celebrates hair in places where it is normally shaved away. swaying away from the general trend to groom every part, roos recommends leaving it unkempt in an attempt to break the taboo about body hair. the series of undergarments — named after the term describing hair fetishism — are woven, knitted, knotted and hand tufted to look like pubic, armpit and chest hair. the ‘golden rainbow hairy high-waist panties’, ‘short fizzy hair booty briefs’, ‘curly armpit hair bra’ and ‘full fluffy hairy chest bra’ are part of the collection, bearing a candy-colored aesthetic and edgy vibe.
