The Geodo modular toy set consists of only 10 shapes that allow the creation of an endless variety of things, from architecture, to imaginative clothing and accessories.
Made of foam, each piece can flex and bend to form off-the-grid creations that pop out in all directions. The shapes are big, and it’s not just about making things, but how they are made. Building with Geodos is like using an imaginary shape synthesizer where your modular components fit together to make things you would have never thought of before. This allows you to take the smallest discovery and run wild with it.

Flatlight is a 2D contemporary candleholder made to trick the eye into seeing it as a 3D form. The design resembles a classical candeholder stripped down to its most basic wireframe form . It is a functional design piece with a twist that merges the 2D & 3D worlds.
The candeholder was created with a photochemical etching process to ensure high definition design details and is made from 0.4mm thick brass.
The project is currently looking for funding on Kickstarter
Take a look!

Je me nomme Movsæky, Valentin de mon vrais prénom. J’ai 18 ans et
je suis étudiant en art. Je suis adepte du “photographisme” un mélange
donc, de photo et de graphisme. L’alliance de photo et de dessin. J’utilise
cet technique pour montrer mes deux savoir faire (et passion) en même
temps. J’aime faire passer des émotions à travers mes réalisations, par les
couleurs et leurs symboliques etc.

In 2010 I visited Turkey, travelled around the country and fell in love with the culture. What I learned is that the most important thing to do is to be good. People I met showed me respect and kindness – no prejudice, no stereotypes, no aggression. I left part of my soul there promising I will come back one day! Look at all these faces of joy, happiness, sadness, innocence and relieve – they are all human beings and they have story to tell. Feel the emotion behind the contrast of the european and asian cultures.Read More
“Chess Portraits” by Francesco Ridolfi:
Hi! i linked you my new project about CAM.
Cam, Cam, the child’s world, is one of the most important companies for baby products in Italy.
Creative Concept: In relation withe two previous creative concepts (LOOKING AT THE WORLD THROUGH CHILDREN’S EYES and CURIOOSITY) in wich the children’s fantasyand the curiosity of babies become the leading themes of our illustrations, we came up with GROW UP. Jobs from different point of view: The fantastic sight of the babies.
In Spring 2013, the ./studio3 (Institute for Experimental Architecture, Innsbruck – Prof.Volker Giencke) realized, in collaboration with columbosnext and the Heart of Noise Festival, the accessible architectural installation “./birdie – Cry baby!”.
Within only two months, 36 first-year students completed this 1:1 architecture project – from idea to conception, from a sketch to a built environment, from prototype to structure.
By developing the project ./birdie the students managed to transform an unused green space in the heart of the city into a visible and tangible new site. As a physical infrastructure, a stage and a conceptual space ./birdie evokes discussion about this specific urban site and public space in general.
75 truss joints and 270 steel tubes form the 16m long roof; 3 tons of steel were bolted to an irregular space frame; underneath a textile skin was stretched giving ./birdie its horizon.
The floor responds to the soft curve of the roof membrane with a slightly curved landscape, which was built using a simple planked wood stud construction. All elements were prefabricated by the students and assembled on site.
During the summer the students run the pavilion, initiate events and generate a new venue for everyone. When ./birdie illuminates and starts to sing, it acts as a magnet.
Local residents meet tourists, high culture meets subculture -./birdie is a vibrant interface, nestled in the middle of the ancient city ensemble of Innsbruck, with the Imperial Palace and the National Theatre.
If a passerby enters ./birdie they become the protagonist, ./birdie becomes the stage, the urban environment becomes the auditorium. While resting under the large translucent roof, one can see birdie breathing in the wind. And as the sunlight shines through, the shadows illuminate the complex construction behind it.
Only its 11 ground anchors prevent ./birdie from taking off.

These images are from his new series “The Surreal Project” inspired by the works of René Magritte and plays on many fantasy and other worldly themes that are inspired from memories, emotions and reflections on the world around him.
