Akio Hirata’s Exhibition of Hats
Nendo‘s latest project is Akio Hirata’s Exhibition of Hats.
An installation of about 4,000 mass-produced non-woven fabric hats seem to become the walls and ceiling in no specific pattern, enabling the viewer to wander through the space in any way they like.The exhibit runs through this tomorrow at Spiral Garden in Tokyo.
Here at the 54th Venice Biennale and couldnt help but share the great work, The Big Bambu, by twin brothers Mike and Doug Starn. Check out their video installation from the New York MET museum rooftop. And photo below from the Biennale on until Nov. 27th.

Calling all Product Managers in London! I’ve been recently getting to know the London tech scene by becoming a “Meetup” junkie. Just attended ProductTank; speakers included: Anthony Sullivan (BBC), Stephen Dunn (Guardian), Dan Peters (Yahoo!), Robin Pembrooke (iTV), and Ralph Riviera (BBC). Great being with like-minded people and fun networking.

Who knew Lady GaGa was a Product Designer?! According to Fast Company, the glasses, debuted at CES 2011, have a functional camera that sits on the bridge of the wearer’s nose still allowing them to see normally and UV protected. Viewers get to check out the various photos snapped or uploaded images using the internal USB. First ever camera-sunglasses, can anyone pull these off or do you have to have a bacon layered suit jacket hanging in your closet?
