Old Punk, Hardcore and Indie show flyers redesigned with clean Swiss art direction

New York-based Graphic designer Mike Joyce made a whole slew of super-clean versions of old punk, post-punk, hardcore and indie flyers which he appropriately titles “Swissted.” The concept comes from “his love of punk rock and Swiss modernism, two movements that have absolutely nothing to do with one another.”

Now we know…it was those cigar-chomping traffic managers, with their difficulties over volume that led to the flat-pack sofa. Or, so it seems in this stylish film S-73 by designers, artists, and film-makers, Ray and Charles Eames. Interestingly this 1954 film shows the Herman Miller flat-pack sofa pre-dates Christian Gillis’s idea of ready-to-assemble furniture by 2 years, which would mean IKEA owes it all to Miller, and their team of designers, which included the Eames, George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, and Robert Propst, who gave us the “Noguchi Table,” “Eames Lounge Chair,” “Marshmallow Sofa,” “Ball Clock,” and Nelson’s own “Hang-It-All,” and the “Sling Sofa.”

If you spire to roll something more complicated than a braided joint, perhaps you may want to test your skills with the Scorpion Joint.

20-year-old Tokyo-based artist Mayuko of Tama Art University created this rather odd typeface using human leg hair.

I’m assuming it’s not hers.

Trailer for ‘Eames: The Architect and The Painter’

This looks splendid! Eames: The Architect and The Painter opens on November 18, 2011 at Laemmle Music Hall in Los Angeles. For more playdates go here. From the movie’s webiste:  

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America’s most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. But their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life—from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age—has been less widely understood. Narrated by James Franco, Eames: The Architect and the Painter is the first film dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work.

The Berioska Dance Company of Russia gets in an ultra-mod frame of mind in this video from 1969.

With great national pride our young and fashionably hip comrades dance a folkloric boogaloo while off in the distance Moscow’s Ostankino TV Tower (the fourth largest in the world) looms like a giant hypodermic needle.

Turntables in motion: Bicycle with record players as wheels

Dutch designers Merel Slootheer, Pieter Frank de Jong and Liat Azulay have created a bike that plays music. Feats Per Minute (fiets is Dutch for bicycle) was designed using a basic $90 bike and with a few changes converted into a record player on wheels.

Simple alterations to the bike’s structure makes it easy to change records, and a few tweaks to the “crank of the bike and the chain” ensures records don’t skip. The record screws onto the bike frame with a small cap, and the needle is spring-loaded to keep it steady. To allow (or force?) pedestrians to hear your tunes as you zoom by, the designers installed a megaphone-style amplifier made out of plumbing materials.

In order for the records to sound as intended, you need to be a real steady peddler.
