    Photography accessory company Photojojo might consist of "a small and passionate team" of designers (who are hiring, by the way), but despite their dimunitive size, the SF-based outfit distributes a staggering array of product. And what they've got in the pipeline is bound to draw some attention: "We're working on some stuff to make drone photography easier for anyone to get into," the company writes. Specifically, they may be helping to usher in a new category of photography: The drone selfie.

    What's a drone selfie? Well jeez, whaddaya think it is?

    That one was shot by Amit Gupta, the SF-based entrepreneur who runs Photojojo. No word yet on what the physical products they'll be releasing are.

    “Meta-Follies for the Metropolitan Landscape” by ecoLogicStudio is a spatial mechanism which aims at establishing a playful dialogue with the user enabling the development of clouds of knowledge, a form of meta-language based on material experience, patterns recognition, sedimentation of feelings as well as a real-time meta-conversation.

    This smart and responsive installation, a fibrous structure, has been conceived algorithmically and will keep evolving algorithmically once it will be handled over to its end users and it will commence its exhibition tour following unknown itineraries across different regions, cultures, languages and environmental contexts; it cannot be predicted how would these contexts read and respond to the project nor the pavilion can be designed to respond to a specific context in a traditional sense. However the machine nature of this proposal allows a dynamic form of contextual relationship with the surrounding urban environment, one that works through intuitive aesthetic appreciation as well as behavioral response.

    Referring to Slavoj Zizek’s call for the development of a “new terrifying form of abstract materialism” the pavilion confronts the artificiality of the contemporary urban landscape with the production of a new form of hyper-artificiality able to offer refuge and consolation to the crowd of post-ecologists. Such emerging group of urban dwellers have stopped searching for a new Arcadia and are determined to develop a new ‘shanty’...

    Gonçalo Campos has expanded his Wallmonds line to now include the Wallmonds Shelves, a shelving system built into a wooden frame. Within that frame are shelves that fold down for when you need a place to keep something. Keep it by the front door to hold your keys, wallet, or cell phone, or you could use it decoratively to store knick-knacks.

    The design is like a framed picture you’d hang on a wall, except with this, whatever you place on the shelves can act as the art.

    When you don’t need it, flip the shelves back up to lay flat against the frame and out of the way.

    Wallmonds Shelves is made out of birch plywood and beech wood, and treated with natural oils.

    Serious seamstresses must usually invest in both a large machine for home use and a portable “handy-stitch” style one for everywhere else. Why not combine both? The Bermina sewing machine is both stationary and portable thanks to its clever docking system. Set it in the dock to use it the conventional way while it charges, or take it out of the dock for freehand stitching on-the-go!
