Diogene

Gear  |  Projects
Diogene is a stunning cabin by Renzo Piano. It is Vitra’s smallest building ― but largest product. Diogene is not meant as an emergency accommodation, but a voluntary place of retreat. Simply wonderful and yes, luxurious.
"Diogene is equipped with everything you need for living. The front part serves as a living room: On one side, there is a pull-out sofa; on the other, a folding table under the window. Behind a partition, there are a shower and toilet as well as a kitchen, which has also been reduced to the necessary. The house and furnishings form a single unit. It is constructed from wood with a warm character, which also defines the interior. For the purpose of weather protection, the exterior is coated with aluminium paneling. The overall shape and saddle roof resemble the archetype of a house, but its rounded-off corners and the all-over façade materials also give the impression of a contemporary product. It is no simple hut, but instead a technically perfect and aesthetically attractive refuge. The great challenge lies in planning the complex product so that it is suitable for industrial series production. “This little house is the final result of a long, long journey partially driven by desires and dreams, but also by technicality and a scientific approach,” explains Renzo Piano."

Check out Footage of a Storm Supercell Forming

Array
Gear  |  Projects


It took photographer/storm chaser/all-around brave guy Mike Olbinski four years to capture this footage of the formation of a supercell near Booker, Texas.
"Shot in the Central Plains of Texas, the footage was captured on a Canon 5D Mark II with a Rokinon 14mm 2.8 lens. It's actually broken up into four different parts, because Oblinski and his friend Andy Hoeland started out on a side of the storm where it was too rainy to see anything. Then they actually drove THROUGH the storm to see the crazy cloud structure form. Fortunately, the storm didn't actually turn into a full-fledged tornado. But the footage is incredibly nonetheless, and Olbinski and his pal clearly have some guts."

The Rain Room, an art installation by rAndom International, is a large room where it rains indoor. The trick is that cameras detect the visitors' positions to turn off the individual rain strems directly overhead. The result is quite magical: you can walk through pouring rain without getting wet, no umbrellas required.
The art installation, which made its splash at the Barbican in London, Random International’s Rain Room is now coming to the MoMA in New York. Check out the video clip below.
