This series, designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1968, employs the “Incalmo” technique wherein two different types of glass, worked separately, are fused together to obtain, within a single object, separate areas differentiated by colors. Super nice.
Cracking 1970 Porsche concept by Giorgetto Giugiaro whilst at Italdesign. The working prototype was previewed at the Turin Motorshow the same year. Unfortunatley the car was subsequently destroyed by terrorists protesting the labour practices of the car's owner.Read more here.

On Monday night workwear clothing brand Dickies launched their new brand bible publication of 'Love Your Work' at the Maverick showroom on Redchurch St. The 'Love Your Work' is accompanied by the 5 day installation and champions a variety of workplaces - one of which is the Footpatrol Store under construction, which they shot whilst we were on site. The new range from Dickies looks great, with collaborations with Hideout and SF's Rebel8.

The new STEPS (Shimano Total Electric Power System) component kit is designed to preserve the feeling of the traditional bike while adding the parts necessary for delivering electrical power. A 250W electric motor can take bikes up to 25km per hour, while a regenerative braking function focuses on recharging the 24V/4.0Ah lithium-ion battery, such as when riders travel downhill. The battery is removable for charging, requiring just an hour to juice up when empty, Shimano says; it can be recharged more than 3,000 times, or every day for roughly eight years. Electric switch buttons for riding mode, display mode and a light switch, meanwhile, are integrated into the 4-finger brake levers, and cables with slim 5mm plugs allow easy internal frame routing. A removable cycle computer, finally, offers a clear and quick overview of all e-bike functions, including riding mode, battery power, speed and odometer.
