The Eames-Inspired Nikes by Ora-Ïto Concept
Industrial Designers Charles and Ray Eames have had a long-lasting and inspiration impact on the world of design which recently became the focus of a Ora-Ïto mash-up involving Nike. The fan creation takes arguably the most famous of Eames’ designs, the Eames Lounge 670 armchair for Herman Miller (1956) and merges it with the world of footwear. From a functional perspective, the shoes feature dark wooden panels (true to the original) throughout that encapsulate a GORE-TEX slipper. A thin rubber outsole would provide traction. The concept has sparked quite the debate over its aesthetics, leading to a debate over at Design.Co.

Nobumichi Asai Applies Electronic Make-Up Using Real-time Face Tracking
Like something straight out of a sci-fi film, CGI expert Nobumichi Asai and a team of creative developers and directors developed ‘Omote’, a real-time face tracking & projection installation. Using state-of-the-art technology, the visual mapping concept transforms a model’s face into mesmerizing patterns with an electronic equivalent of make-up. In the initial stages of the process, a 3D laser scans and creates a three dimensional facial replica with pin-point accuracy, complete with detailed surfaces and contours. A selection of animated graphics are then layered on the face and manipulated by the artist in real-time. Later this august, ‘Omote’ will be showcased in front of a live audience in Japan, where visitors can experience the concept first hand.
