Southampton, New York: A Private Retreat

Blaze-Makoid-Temple-Brown-house-2-810x540.jpg

At first glance, it’s impossible to tell where the Old Sag Harbor Road residence is located as it’s surrounded by trees in its own private enclave. The four-story contemporary home in Southampton, New York offers an escape from real life with its peaceful landscape making it feel like a sanctuary. It was designed by Blaze Makoid Architecture, with the help of one of the homeowners who’s an interior designer with a freshly obtained architecture degree, to be a retreat perched atop of the wooded lot that comes complete with seamless indoor/outdoor living.

A negative edge swimming pool is just steps away from the main living area, connected by floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that disappear.

The Humanity Star

christopher a. frank humanity star.png

This shiny, spherical satellite resembling a disco ball is currently traveling around our planet in an attempt to "to serve as a focal point for humanity and reminder about our fragile place in the universe".

No matter where you are in the world, or what is happening in your life, everyone will be able to see the Humanity Star in the night sky.
— Peter Beck | Founder of Rocket Lab

The satellite is made from carbon fiber and has 65 reflective panels that reflect sunlight back to Earth. The Humanity Star spins rapidly, creating a blinking flashing effect. 

The Humanity Star launched in January from New Zealand and orbits the Earth every 90 minutes. It will continue through September before it starts to decay and is pulled back into Earth's gravity, ultimately burning up on reentry. You can track in real-time the location of the satellite on a website.

House in the Dunes

chris+frank.jpg

An architect and 3D animation specialist, Michał Szulik is the mastermind behind the House of Dunes project. The beautiful interior and exterior design of this home is a shining example of minimalism, using accent pieces such as walls and hardware to contrast the white negative space that dominates the home. Utilizing a black and white color scheme and reclaimed wood throughout, this home is brilliantly thought-out and decorated. And the most interesting part of this home? It is 100% computer-rendered and not the least bit real. Enjoy the video at the end of the blog which shows a rendered walkthrough of this lovely concept home.

Located in Budapest, Hungary, DekoRatio Branding & Design Studio is a mecca for interior design, epitomizing the intersection of influence and inspiration. From their basic identity to their sliding doors that cleverly change messaging written on the wall behind it, no stone was left unturned in this beautifully and brilliantly designed space.

The DekoRatio office not only provides an experience to its visitors, but also acts as a showroom for interior design. The space is divided into two parts in the angle of a "K": an industrial space and an all-white office space.

Hypebeast 20 - The X Issue

chris+a+frank.jpg

Sporting a 90's vibe, Hypebeast 20 - The X Issue is a uniquely retro editorial project designed by Hybrid Design studio out of San Francisco. Combining a classic editorial feel with graffiti-esque hand drawings, the style and feel are reminiscent of Raygun and the work of David Carson. Showing its face more and more lately, this 90's feel is even recognizable in the upcoming film Captain Marvel.

Red Bull Music Academy BASS CAMP

chris+frank+cfx.jpg

Ben Ali Souheil created this stunning poster series for Red Bull Music Academy BASS CAMP. Using geometric shapes interwoven with musical iconography and elements, Ben created a series that spoke to the event's fusion of medieval and modern inspiration.

This design story came together in what I think was the centerpiece of this project, the limited-edition canvas posters named after the 7th note on the musical scale.
