He makes his entrance less about what he does for design, and instead focusses on the capabilities and necessity of design—showing, not telling and quite compelling.</p> <p><iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/42531184" width="620" height="326" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="431" title="design, frankchimero, web" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/05/20/frank-chimero_site_03.jpg?1337583203" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="5184" title="design, frankchimero, web" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/05/20/frank-chimero_site_02.jpg?1337582927" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/parallax-design-manifesto-frank-chimero" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/parallax-design-manifesto-frank-chimero#comments design productivity technique web Mon, 21 May 2012 05:28:17 +0000 jessicapatterson 4236 at http://design.org Burnt Out: Fire Sculpted Furniture by Kaspar Hamacher http://design.org/blog/burnt-out-fire-sculpted-furniture-kaspar-hamacher <p>Belgium-based furniture and product designer <a href="http://www.kasparhamacher.be/" target="Kaspar Hamacher">Kaspar Hamacher</a> "loves wood and his chain saw." But for these stools he turned up the heat and introduced raw fire as a tool. </p> <p>The series, titled ‘Ausgebrannt,’ (i.e. ‘Burnt Out’), embraces the raw form of naturally felled or dead wood. Kaspar takes the local tree remnants, pieces them together, and uses fire sculpting to carve out the legs. The scorching and use of raw timber produces some beautiful and unique details within the stool and table "templates."</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div
