And Now, for Something Completely Different: a Modern and Contemporary Design Blog

MoCo Loco
"The Modern & Contemporary Design Blog"

"MoCo Loco is your source for modern & contemporary design news and views."

There you have it. I could stop writing now, and you'd have a pretty good idea of what MoCo Loco is about. But, as usual, the Lemming has a few words to say.

To begin with, the name of the blog had me expecting something dealing with upscale beverages. There may be something Starbucks-ish in there, but I didn't find it at a quick run-through.

Recent posts on LoCo Moco:
  • "My Shower Curtain is a Green Warrior by Elisabeth Buecher"
    (April 16, 2009)
    • "Seeing as we've been posting about water and the environment of late Elisabeth Buecher's My Shower Curtain is a Green Warrior (above) really got our attention."
      The post includes a photo of a woman who's engulfed by outsize soap bubbles. Reminded me of some really bad fifties sci-fi film. But, I suppose it makes sense.
  • "Habitus by Sebastian Jansson"
    (April 16, 2009)
    • "Sebastian Jansson will be showing Habitus, a bar stool, among other items at SaloneSatellite in Milan next week. 'By studying the formation of coffee leafs, Jansson was able to re-create the stool through this intricate arrangement of geometric forms, whilst maintaining its aesthetic qualities and comfort.'..."
      If the photo is of this coffee-leaf-inspired bar stool, I think we're looking at a great tool for promoting physical fitness. I doubt anyone would willingly sit on the thing for more than a few seconds - and then would feel like moving around. A lot.
  • "Via Twitter: Bertjan Pot's The Revolving Chandelier"
    (April 16, 2009)
    • "Seen at designboom, Bertjan Pot's The Revolving Chandelier, 'the rising air, heated by three halogen bulbs makes all four light shades rotate.'..."
      Part of the lamp's support looks like the result of unnatural acts between a coral snake and a zebra, but as a whole this lamp looks quite attractive - and might be very attractive if seen in motion, as it is designed to operate. Seriously: This is, I think, good design.
That's enough to give an idea of the content, I think.

It looks like a good multi-author blog, and one worth going back to on occasion.

Today's News! Some of it, anyway

Actually, some of yesterday's news may be here. Or maybe last week's.
The software and science stuff might still be interesting, though. Or not.
The Lemming thinks it's interesting: Your experience may vary.
