News & Stories — 20. August 2014
Art.Lebedev Studio sind das erfolgreichste russische Designbüro und schwer findet sich eine Gestaltungsaufgabe, die das Büro nicht schon mit Bravour gelöst hat. Ob Rubelzeichen, Metroplan oder Bushaltestelle, eigene Schriften oder komplette Produktion eigener Ideen bis zum Vertrieb in der eigenen Cafe Designladenkette - es gibt kaum etwas, was es nicht schon zu lösen galt.
Hier ein Schulterblick über die  Arbeit eines Hintergrund-illustrators im Studio.

Making a Box with a Pop-Up Insert

Swan conceived of a low-tech mechanism to add a small surprise to these boxes. Here he shows you how he made them and how the mechanism works:

DIY Retractable Ceiling Bed

Using a garage door opener and sliding-door hardware, Ana and Jacob White figured out how to rig up a retractable ceiling bed for their latest tiny house design:

Shop Tour

Linn from Darbin Orvar gives us a tour of her shop—or shops, I should say, as her work is divided (hand tools/power tools) between two freestanding structures outside of her house:

DIY Wood-Fired Hot Tub in Progress

This one's really just a bit of a teaser, as the finished build video isnt done yet: Ben Uyeda has been working on a design for a wood-fired hot tub. Here he's testing out the heating mechanism:








Using Biscuits For Shelf Pins

John Heisz has worked out a way to retroactively drill shelf pins, by not drilling at all: He uses a biscuit joiner and a couple of simple jigs.

How To Cut Mat Board

Chris Salomone shows you how to gussy up your walls, by framing your artwork in custom-cut mat boards:

Moving Into The Colorado Shop

If you've got a shop, hopefully you'll never have to move it. The Wood Whisperer famously built a huge "dream shop" outside his home in Arizona, but several years later he's now had to move to Colorado. Here he shows you the garage that will be his new shop, and some of the $6,000 moving process:

Turning an Ice Cream Scoop on a Foot-Powered Lathe

If you've got a lathe, that's a fast way for making last-minute gifts (assuming said gifts require handles). Here Shannon Rogers explains, then demonstrates:

The Nebia Showerhead Atomizes Your Shower Water

Five years in the making, the Nebia showerhead is designed to get more water onto your body while reducing the actual amount you're using. How does it do that? Science.

The Nebia is the brainchild of Carlos Gomez Andonaegui, who ran a health club in Mexico City. He observed that running all of those showers was consuming a lot of water; after attacking the problem with his father, a retired engineer, they conceived of a showerhead that could effectively atomize the water. During the subsequent years of development, thermofluid experts were brought in to refine the design. The result is that the Nebia increases the surface area of the agua by a factor of 10, while using less than a third of the stuff!

Consumers are clearly interested; the Kickstarter campaign is well past its $100,000 goal with nearly $2.6 million in funding, and nearly every Early Bird special is gone. What's also interesting is that five pledgers have opted for the $10,000 package to receive 40 Nebias each, indicating that someone who runs an apartment complex, health club or similar has taken note. The water savings, of course, scales up:

With 14 days left in the campaign, here's still a pledging option available to receive a single Nebia for $299, expected to retail for $399 when it comes out next year.

I do wonder a bit about the installation:

Those of you with plumbing experience, or experience designing plumbing fixtures, do you reckon the press-fit shown in the video will be strong enough to both support the weight of the device over time, and provide a leak-free seal? And whatever gasket or grommet is serving to provide the internal seal is bound to wear out over time; I think I'd be tempted to caulk-tack the back of the unit into place against the tiles, but I suppose it would need to be ripped off to replace the gasket or grommet. Any thoughts?
