As a nod to the Enablist, we’re going to continue the friday skateboarding theme. Airing this week, Patrick O’Dell caps off his season 2 series on Lakai’s Fully Flared vid with a spot on the comeback kid: Guy Mariano. 2 Episodes already posted here, more to come soon if VBS and O’Dell can stop skinny dipping together and giving each other hand jobs long enough to worry about Gene P’s feelings.
Created as an extension for the Wettingen School, the cafeteria was designed by mlzd architect.
The building envelope, composed of a homogeneous coverage of black anodized aluminium sheets, plays with the light that seeps between the silhouettes of the flowers and leafs cut out of the aluminium sheets. The new cafeteria has a rural character and part of a the conceptual and formal analogy with the traditional farm, which makes the volume, types and structural features of the interior space.

This is an interesting collaboration that I am too lazy to explain on my own. Here are some bullet points from the press release…
- Sagmeister has developed a series of designs that explore the jean that started it all – the Levi’s Original, Button-Fly 501
- The installation will unveil the first two Sagmeister images from the special art series created for the Levi’s
- Levi’s brand and American Rag stores in Los Angeles and San Francisco will distribute a limited run of 501 museum-quality, poster reproductions of the Sagmeister images featured in American Rag’s windows this March.
- Sagmeister took Levi’s Original button-fly 501 and examined its origin and mystique, literally stripping the iconic silhouette down to the raw materials that compose its DNA. “The jeans themselves are iconic, so we decided to go with just a product shot, using nothing more and nothing less than a single pair of 501s,” Stefan explains.
Galets created by the French designer Ludovic Renson features a low roto-molded table and stools. They are chrome-painted with a bamboo insert on the surface.

Beenie Man, Who Am I, 1998
Notte Sento is a short film made with 4500+ still photographs.
“A girl misses her train to Milan and is set to wait overnight in Rome until dawn. However, a chance encounter with a guy changes her plans and the night lights of the capital turn into the background to a tender love story. An extraordinary chemistry made of knowing glances and small gestures fills the few instants that separate them both from the sunrise.”
Dutch designer Sander Reijgers puts a twist on those hideous BAPE hoodies by using real blow-up dolls as the material in his wearable works of art.

Our friends at Material Interest tipped us off to the fact that the NCAA is streaming every tournament game live on the internets.
**Update..Unfortunately it seems as if this is only for those who use IBM’s. Weak Sauce.
As the NCAA tournament kicks into gear today, this video by Peter Rosenberg always makes me laugh. Duke can get the dills forever, and although the Terps don’t have a shot in hell this year, they get 100% of my support.
