“Living” Chandelier Made with Algae-Filled Leaves Naturally Purifies the Air

Design engineer and biotechnologist Julian Melchiorri —who first gained attention by creating the first synthetic biological leaf —recently came up with an ingenious lighting design that is as beautiful as it is eco-friendly. His “living” chandelier Exhale, purifies air while lighting up your room and was on display at the V&A Museum during the London Design Festival . The green lighting piece is composed of 70 glass leaves filled with green algae, which absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. The transparent liquid filters through light, giving off a warm glow. While green design is often based on clean lines and ultra-modern styles, Melchiorri's chandelier is a sophisticated lighting piece that proves eco-friendly concepts can come in a myriad of styles. The elegant chandelier is modular, which means that its leaves can be configured into different forms depending on necessity. It's also functional for both indoor and outdoor use, according to where...

Design Forum: The Fever Is The Prescription

Word around town is that people love–I mean love–Channel Island’s semi-new Fever model. Crafted and designed by Mike Andrews for San Clemente’s Pat Gudauskas, the Fever has become a staple board for guys like Pat, Sage Erickson, Lakey Peterson, Eithan Osborne, Conner Coffin and more. One of the principal reasons it’s become such a loveable stick is found in its versatility, its capacity to perform in a variety of conditions. Pat’s gone to town on the Fever in everything from pumping Lowers to draining Skeleton Bay. You might even recall this edit , where Pat is seen packing tube after tube on his beloved Fever. With the board’s growing, widespread approval, we figured it’s time for an analytical breakdown of Andrews’ design. Here’s was Pat had to say about the Fever on the CI website: Overview: The Fever was born from a desire for an all-around performance board based on...

Movie review: “Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton” looks at the life and work ethic of a surfing star

Two stars. Unrated.  118 minutes. By Kristen Page-Kirby, The Washington Post It takes a lot of work to be a surf bum. “Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton,” the latest documentary from Rory Kennedy (“Last Days in Vietnam”), is partly the life story of Hamilton, widely considered the world’s best big-wave surfer, and partly a study in obsession. Kennedy bounces back and forth between times in Hamilton’s life: his unconventional upbringing on Oahu, his surfing career and into his startlingly ordinary (and very wealthy) family life with volleyball player Gabrielle Reece and their daughters. What ties all the time-hopping together is Hamilton’s drive to push against every limit the ocean puts in front of him. While the nonlinear structure gives a good sense of Hamilton’s journey from counterculture to mainstream culture, it also means that “Take Every Wave” lacks narrative focus. Kennedy is skilled at interweaving home movies...

The Old Foes Choose Sides For The 36th The America S Cup

10:47 AM Thursday 19 Oct 2017 : New Zealand Impression of what the boat may look like Impression of what the boat may look like I am damn sick and tired of the story-go-round. What I mean is the re-hashing of old stories regurgitating old news to keep the Americas Cup in the headlines. It's not fake news, it's just re-hashed garbage, especially when supposed facts being referenced are not based on what was actually said at the RNZYS announcement. For those unfamiliar with my work, based on what was actually said at the announcement, check out my previous article: Monohulls - And They May Foil for the Next America's Cup The interesting story unfolding now, is how the other teams are reacting to the news on the new boat. The old foe, The New York Yacht Club have indicated they are back and I am glad to see them...

The Ancient underwater city Heracleion - Abu Kir / Egypt

The city dates back to the 6th century B.C. and holds some of the most beautiful artifacts you could imagine. Things like grand statues of gods and goddesses standing well over 15 feet tall and carved out of red granite, treasures of gold and rare stones, elaborate temples and enormous tablets. This find is enormous in the historical preservation community and has been commissioned by museums around the world. This is an absolutely epic underwater find that has researchers scrambling to this part of the globe to learn about this incredibly beautiful Egyptian city. The fact that this city found underwater has been left untouched underwater for so many years is an amazing factor on its own let alone being a find as big as it truly is. These statues and artifacts are massive and nearly perfectly preserved. The attention to detail in these pieces is truly beautiful and I’m happy to...
