Loes Veenstra

For 50-odd years Loes Veenstra sat in her street in Rotterdam, needles clicking away. In total she has made 556 hand-knitted jumpers but not one has been worn…until now by a flash-mob...

The flash-mob and accompanying book was recognised with a Dutch Design Award in October 2013. The last part of the project will see Veenstra's jumpers finally fulfil their purpose, as they are sold in an auction in Rotterdam in the new year.

Elisa Strozyk

"The world around us is becoming increasingly immaterial. We are now used to write emails instead of letters, to pay online, to download music and touch virtual buttons on touch screens. We live in a society of images, a visual culture full of colours, advertisements, television and the internet. There is not much left to feel. Giving importance to surfaces that are desirable to touch can reconnect us with the material world and enhance the emotional value of an object. 
'Wooden Textiles' convey a new tactile experience. We are used to experience wood as a hard material; we know the feeling of walking across wooden floors, to touch a wooden tabletop or to feel the bark of a tree. But we usually don't experience a wooden surface which can be manipulated by touch." Elisa Strozyk


Teo Pirisi

Teo Pirisi, aka Moneyless, is an Italian-born artist, who has made the country his home since his birth in 1980. The artist grew up as a member of the 90’s graffiti scene in Tuscany, which he attributes to the development of his artistic identity. Pirisi further devolped his signature geometric style through his studies at Multimedia and Communication Design at Carrara Fine Art Academy and Isia in Florence, respectively.

By combining his graffiti and fine art backgrounds, the artist has been able to develop a unique style of geometric art.

CARMA for B-Bicycle Culture Magazine

Can a bike erase everything that a car has done? Leo Burnett Lisbon decided to find out the answer to this challenging question with its new project CARMA for B-Bicycle Culture Magazine, a quarterly magazine about the passion for cycling. For this project, Rcicla Bicletas built a bicycle out of the scrap of a retired Mercedes hoping that the heavy karma of the car could be rebalanced by riding the same number of kilometres in a greener way: just by cyclin.
