“Metamorphosen” by Atelier Olschinsky

Last November, we featured a series of illustrations by Viennese design house Atelier Olschinsky. While their work is universally excellent, their recent series Metamorphosen really caught my eye. Check out the whole collection here, or head over to their website for more visual stimulation.

Neon Indian Presents: “Fallout” Music Video

Neon Indian released an awesome music video for their track “Fallout” out of their “Era Extraña” album. The video was made in collaboration with Adult Swim, more specifically animator Lilfuchs. The visuals feature a cartoon, big-breated, Pink-haired babe driving around in her convertible: that’s some 8os animated swag right there. Enjoy:

Diego Gravinese Presents: “Hyperreal Paintings”

Spanish artists, painter, and designer Diego Gravinese recently got much attention from the public eye because of his extremely realistic painting. The work, which in fact is labelled as “Hyperreal”, features acrylic oil on canvas representations of previously taken photographs.

NVRMND’s “No More Roses Nor Pretty Patterns (NMRNPP)” Collection: Preview

So yesterday we opened up sneak peak season with our NMRNPP COMMERCIAL but now it’s time to get serious and give you an idea about what this collection is all about. With everything being about excess and crazy head-to-toe patterns, but with also lack of quality and attention to detail, we decided to create a collection that focuses on clean cuts, quality materials to create something that can be worn anywhere, in every occasion and is simultaneously fashion conscious, timeless. With pieces ranging from raw denim, shirtings, high quality french terrys and fleeces, NMRNPP is a collection that mainly focuses on the roots of apparel construction, leaving space for the user to mold the apparel itself into their own lifestyle. Check out some preview pictures below, official lookbook coming very soon.

Toyota Prius x Parlee Concept Bike

As much as I dislike the Prius as an automobile, the Toyota Prius Projects division recently paired up with high-end bike company Parlee Cycles to develop a pretty unique concept. The Toyota Prius x Parlee concept is the first bicycle to use a shifting system that is controlled via a neuron transmitter attached to a helmet that the rider wears. Let me re-phrase that: using nothing but brain waves, the rider can shift gears. Pretty awesome technology and a glimpse into the future of what bicycle technology might look like in the coming years. Check out the video below, which has some cool footage of the machine in action along with interviews with some key players in the project including Bob Parlee. For even more info on the project, visit Prolly Is Not Probably’s step-by-step coverage.

“Cities” by Atelier Olschinsky

Atelier Olschinsky (“The Olschinsky Workshop”) is a joint venture of Peter Olschinsky and Verena Weiss, two graphic artists and designers based in Vienna. Started in 2002, Atelier Olschinsky is responsible for some of the best graphic design and illustration I’ve seen, period. Their understated motto is “It is just so important to work as much as you can, to learn and to be open to new things,” and this approach is definitely paying off for them. The images featured here are from their “Cities” series. If you like what you see be sure to check out their catalogue for more amazing pieces, as this represents just a small portion of their body of work. Prints of their art are available at their shop, and they also have a Facebook page where you can keep updated on their latest progress.
