The iconic bottle was designed by Kenji Ekuan and his team at GK Design.
It took three years for Ekuan and his team to arrive at the dispenser’s transparent teardrop shape. More than 100 prototypes were tested in the making of its innovative, dripless spout (based on a teapot’s, but…
I know some people are throwing stones, but I really like the new Nets logo for when they move over to Brooklyn. It’s classic and clean, and it’s sort of the Camden Yards of logos.
ETA: Looking at it again, I guess I can see where the ‘NETS’ font kind of blows. It needs more weight, more gravity (which sounds funny for a basketball team logo, i know). But overall I like it.
Artist Olafur Eliasson, who placed the waterfalls in the East River in NYC in 2008, has designed a visual sculpture, a circular walkway that was placed on the rooftop of the Aros Museum in Aarhus, Denmark. The work is called Your Rainbow Panorama
