Designers Created a Giant Golden Egg Solar Sauna in Sweden

Designers from Studio Bigert & Bergström have built a sculptural chamber in the shape of a golden-egg solar sauna, installed at Luossabacken in Kiruna, Sweden’s northernmost town.

The egg is made out of stainless golden mirror sheeting, its multifaceted form breaking up the surroundings that it reflects into a multiplicity of different mirror images. The egg’s interior has been formed out of wood, with the wall panels and floor decking made out of pine and the bench of aspen. In the center of the egg stands the wood-heated, heart-shaped sauna stove made out of iron and stone. The temperature inside the egg varies between 75° and 85° Celsius.

Pharrell Williams and Mike Einziger Debut New Startup Technology at TechCrunch’s Disrupt NY

TechCrunch’s premier startup and technology news conference, TechCrunch Disrupt, returned to New York this week in Manhattan. Bringing to life the things that make TechCrunch tick—tech and startups— Disrupt NY ended the conference with a performance by Pharrell Williams and Incubus guitarist, Mike Einziger to showcase the new technology from their new startup, MIXhalo. Founded by Einziger with Pharrell as a an advisor and investor, MIXhalo’s new audio technology essentially makes live events sound studio-quality to concert goers.

At live concerts, musicians are able to hear their performance via headphones that allow them to hear with high-quality sounds. But, the audience does not receive the same sound through blaring speakers. With MIXhalo, you install the iOS app (there are plans for an Android version, too), connect to a special MIXhalo network and then you can hear what Einziger called a “a really, really high quality, studio-quality audio experience,” even if you’re “a thousand feet away from the stage.”

We’re stoked to see this rollout. Check out Pharrell and Mike speak about MIXhalo and their performance in the video below.

adidas Shoe Design with a Rhythm Composer Built In

Marketing and creative agency, Neely & Daughters has created a custom concept/prototype for MIadidas—a customizable adidas shoe line—incorporating breakdance culture and the infamous Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer. The Roland TR-808 is a drum machine responsible for a plethora hits, from the origins of hip-hop in the 1980s to its current status as the foundation of trap music. Kanye West even created and dedicated an entire album to beat machine (808s and Heartbreaks).

Not only is the customized sneaker design inspired by the TR-808, but it can actually make beats. Outfitted with tempo control and a start/stop button, there are also six pre-programmed settings to give a budding producer their start. Additionally, the shoe has a speaker, USB port, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth built-in.

Currently, there are no plans to bring the Neely Air into production. Click the jump for images of the Neely & Daughters customized adidas Mi sneaker.

Retweet or repost with your thoughts on the concept.

Human Pantone Project

Brazilian photographer, Angelica Dass, is on a mission to capture every skin tone in the world for her Human Pantone Project aka HUMANÆ. Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems, and most known for their Pantone Color Matching System.

Once Angelica takes a stunning raw photo of a volunteer, she carefully matches the background with the exact same color code as an 11-pixel portion of the model’s face. The project aims to expand the definition of diversity and to shed light on how much skin tone differs from person to person. More importantly, Dass uses the codified Pantone system because it “dilutes the false preeminence of some races over others based on skin color or social condition.”

The project began in early 2016 and has no real end date since Dass wants to capture as much as she possibly can—salute. Hit the jump to check out Dass’ work.
