    Building on the success of their first Winter school in 2010, ManTownHuman’s “Critical Subjects” school returns this summer. The week-long event that will serve as a platform to debate vital architectural questions as diverse as “what is ‘nature’?”; “whatever happened to the avant garde?”; and “what is architecture for?” Applications are currently open – 30 of the UK‘s keenest architecture students will be chosen for their critical and innovative thought.

For Milan Design Week 2014, the Centrum Designu Gdynia ambitiously sought to distill a dozen products by Polish Pomeranian designers into culinary delights. Although the concept itself was executed to varying degrees of success, "Taste of an Object" offered a nice twist on the tried-and-true local design showcase.

    "Flavors have shape," he started, frowning into the depths of the roasting pan. "I wanted the taste of this chicken to be pointed shape, but it came out all round." He looked up at me, still blushing. "Well I mean it's nearly spherical," he emphasized, trying to keep the volume down. "I can't serve this if it doesn't have points."
    ..."When I taste something with intense flavor, the feeling sweeps down to my arm into my fingertips. I feel it—its weight, its texture, whether it's warm or cold, everything.

    Add a touch of color and flexible fun to you kitchen space with the COOK tap! The classical sense of the kitchen spring faucet is reworked into a brightly colored, flexible, soft, silicon hose that can be twisted and turned 360° with ease. When finished using, just let go and it will automatically reposition thanks to its embedded magnets. For a fresh and modern look, it comes in five customizable color variants: sunflower gray, red chili, green sage, milky white and blue blueberry.
