SUNDAY INSPIRATION: KRAM/WEISSHAAR DESIGN.

My friend introduced me the designerduo KRAM/WEISSHAAR this weekend. I got immediately inspired by their works and projects. KRAM/WEISSHAAR is founded by Reed Kram and Clemens Weisshaar in Munich and Stockholm in 2002. Their core works include design of spaces, products and media, and besides they do exhibitions and installations – Many of the leading contemporary art museums in the world have KRAM/WEISSHAAR works in their collections or have either exhibited them. During the last ten years they have worked multiple times for Prada and for Fondazione Prada. Here are some of my favorite works and photos of KRAM/WEISSHAAR:

Breeding Tables – “The product of BREEDING TABLES is tables not a single table, but an indefinite number of different tables. Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram have conceived a process hinged upon custom computer code that generates an indefinite number of solid construction surfaces.

KRAM_WEISSHAAR_THEDOUBLECLUB_COURTYARD_AZULEJOS_2

The Double Club, London – “Located in an old Victorian warehouse, The Double Club is offering a unique approach to entertainment and hospitality, as well as creating a dialogue between Congolese and Western contemporary music, lifestyle, arts and design. The Double Club is an alliance of two cultures in real life that facilitates their cross-pollination without any attempt at fusion. The Double Club consists of three spaces: Bar, Restaurant and Dance Club. Each space is divided into equally sized Western and Congolese parts on a decorative and functional level, generating an inspiring perspective on double identity as well as on cultural coexistence.

A twisting, glass fibre-reinforced concrete surface — 100 m2 in size and only 13 mm thick — appears to float weightlessly above the ground on a mirrored pedestal. VTOL is shaped with the aid of a set of software tools especially developed by the designers.

OFWGKTA/TYLER THE CREATOR LIVE – DUBLIN 2011.

I finally saw the most hyped hip-hop act of the year OFWGKTA with the main guy Tyler the Creator live in Dublin. The young skater guys from L.A. have now been doing something quite different in the scene for the last years and the effort was followed this year with the massive breakthrough. Their lyrics can sound totally non-sense making especially if you have read their interviews in which they try to bullshit the journalists, but then again by closer listening you can notice the creative (crazy) minds. The atmosphere during the gig was more like in a punk gig with constant stage diving and mosh pits, but the crowd and as well the performers themselves where enjoying it to the fullest. Even Tyler who has a broken leg with a support footrest was stage diving multiple times, unfortunately the security guys didn’t allow him to dive from the second floor. As a side note: besides the music and performance what makes Tyler even more enjoyable for many is his ultimate usage of Supreme – Spotted in Dublin as well.

MUSIC OF THE WEEK: STAY+.

Stay+

STAYSTAYSTAY

Stay+, which is formerly known as Christian AIDS, is my new musical finding from Manchester. Their music has been described as “fictional dance”, “synth creepers” and “hologram rave”, but they might as well fall style-wise to the witch house category (I posted some of my favorite witch house (-like) artists earlier here). Stay+ maintains as well the to the genre typcial anonymity by not sharing details nor photos of the members. Besides the mystical musical side the Stay+ collective is making videos and visuals which definitely reflect their music. If you are into the genre at all I suggest to listen the whole album trough.

Note: Find below their fresh album embedded – When you start playing from the first player it will play the whole album from it, but you can pick individual songs as well.
