Taking cycling to work a bit further

A truly bike-friendly office designed by Perkins+Will at the Chicago world headquarters of bike parts manufacturer SRAM includes indoor cycling lanes.

The office, located in a former cold storage warehouse, is built around biking culture. Details include bike-taped door pulls, a wavy recycled wood wall meant to evoke terrain, and an eye-catching cycling track that winds through the open-plan office, plus bike storage and facilities for the 89% of employees in the SRAM headquarters who commute to work by bike.

The 1/8-mile ‘test track’ linking all the open office spaces together has both straightaways and twists and turns for testing prototype bicycle components.

I love the fact that employees arriving for work can enter through the main building lobby or parking garage, bring their bikes up the elevator and hang them outside their cubicles on work station–adjacent bike poles.

There are also bike-related artefacts on display such as signed jerseys of sponsored teams and athletes, images of key moments in SRAM’s history, and their bicycle advocacy around the world.

Hairy Pasta

It's always nice to see projects out there stemming from a simple, clever idea and executed beautifully to realise that idea. Read more.

Hairy Pasta

Russian designer, Nikita Konkin's packaging concept is one such example. Incorporating illustration and the actual product, simple cutouts on the boxes reveal wonderfully glamourous hairdos utilising the natural form of the pasta. 

The in-store visualisation shows great cut through on a supermarket shelf. Sure makes buying pasta a lot more fun.

Playful graphical tile system

Maximo Recio, in collaboration with architects Alvaro Fernández and Pablo Padilla, has completed the renovation of these wonderful bathrooms and locker rooms at a public school in Notting Hill, London. 

The interior uses a bright colour palette of black and white tiles to create a cost-effective sense of identity and playfulness within the educational facility. Paint significantly lightens the rooms, and is used to highlight water and electrical systems. messages, drawings, and patterns composed with tiles encourage children to use facilities responsibly and increase hygiene.

Damien Hirsts Pharmacy 2

Damien Hirsts Pharmacy 2

Having been lucky enough myself to eat at the original Pharmacy back in the late 90s, I was delighted to hear that the art-themed restaurant was making another appearance at Hirst’s Newport Street gallery in Vauxhall, London.

 

The new eatery which opened a couple of weeks ago features work from Hirst’s most iconic series, including the ‘medicine cabinets’ and ‘butterfly kaleidoscope’ paintings, alongside etched glass windows depicting DNA strands, marble inlaid flooring and a bar that incorporates a stainless steel and glass vitrine. Colorful pill graphics are embedded into the marble floor and embroidered onto leather banquettes. 

The original Hirst-designed Pharmacy, locate in Notting Hill, London, was open from 1998 until 2003.

Narita Airports Terminal 3 is connected with color-coded running tracks Read more.

Connected with Colour

Completed in advance of the 2020 olympics in Tokyo, Narita International Airport’s new terminal 3 has been designed around an indoor running track. The color-coded circuit, which links the entirety of the scheme, not only helps with wayfinding, but also provides a comfortable walking experience throughout the terminal’s interior.

The project was designed by a Japanese collective of firms including Party, Nikken and Muji with a focus on creating a low-cost airport in terms of both architecture and interior design. Consequently, the terminal is unusual in that there are no moving walkways or illuminated signs, but instead a system of red and blue running lanes connects the project – blue pathways for departures and red for arrivals.

A great example of how using simple iconography with clever use of bold colours can combine to provide a dynamic and economical wayfinding solution.

Urban Jungle

Andy Yeung, a photographer based in hong kong, captures the bustling metropolis from a completely new perspective for his series ‘urban jungle’. 

Documented via a drone camera, the images depict the architectural sprawl from hundreds of meters above the earth’s surface, highlighting the extreme heights and dramatic depths covered by hong kong’s crowded cityscape. 

Looking down at the city from above, viewers are treated to a typically unseen vantage point — one that accentuates the high-volume high-rises and their impact on the landscape.

Featuring THERE's branding of Bazaar and Fixx for QT Hotel, Gold Coast. Read more.

Printing Technology

Artpower's latest book, 'Printing Technology' explores the techniques and processes of print design projects from around the world, including THERE's branding of Bazaar and Fixx for QT Hotel, Gold Coast.

We're honoured to be featured alongside many of our peers from around the world in this publication as it explores the continual importance and presence of the physical form, despite an ever increasing digital world. The book highlights print projects that attribute to the artisan print techniques and the new age of digital printing. 

Conceived as an affordable boutique designer hotel, QT Gold Coast needed to balance its design credentials with a playful mix of quirky humour, retro surf culture and Miami catwalk cool.

Our work in ‘Printing Technology’ features unexpected materials and textures that create a complimentary juxtaposition of the interior’s nostalgic 50s/60s Beach Galm theme. Raw materials such as hessian and timber, further enhanced with screen printing and laser etching, are used to give a distinct, tactile, luxurious yet highly memorable feel, appropriate to both venues.

THERE not only created these individual subvenue brands within the hotel but also the nationwide masterbrand to the unique brand expression for the Gold Coast hotel, as well as the overarching signage and wayfinding.

A multi coloured skysign of the QT logo utilises LED lighting technology to be constantly shifting and changing colours, resulting in a colourful new addition to the iconic Gold Coast skyline.
