The table, now injection-molded in Britain, was originally designed by Dieter Rams in 1962 along with his 620 Chair Program.
It was last produced in the 1980s and is typical of Rams’s constant quest – at Braun and Vitsœ – to elevate plastic, as he said, to be “a noble and long-living material.”
The addition of adjustable feet satisfies Rams’s wish that was never fulfilled by the original table in the 1960s.
This calendar is a charity project to raise funds for National Parents Network to Protect Children from Radiation.
For this year, 12 photographers are involved : Makoto Hada, Tomoki Imai, Masashi Nagao, Go Itami, Seiji
Shibuya, Keizo Kitajima, Rinko Kawauchi, Katsumi Omori, Takashi Homma, Daido Moriyama, Rie Suzuki,
and Aya Takada.
100% of the benefits will be given to NPNPC (http://kodomozenkoku.com/).
“The shadow has always been a huge element of my work”, affirms Vivian Sassen, and it was while working on Umbra that she found time to ask herself why this is, and what it means. “I don’t feel that I’ve found the answer”, she says, “but the process has helped me to gain more insight into my own psyche. There are always shadows from the past, old fears, sorrow. I’ve shed new light on those – or should I say different nuances of shadow.”
A Guide to The Psychedelic Cuisine by Terence Wright & Michael Thorsby
We came across some interesting projects in Paris-based Art Director and Graphic Designer Michael Thorsby's portfolio. One of them being the book design for “The Soufflé That Smiled At Me - A Guide to The Psychedelic Cuisine” by Terence Wright.
It’s an analytical study of people eating under the influence of drugs and how psychedelic culture relates to food over the past few decades.
A cookbook that actually brings something new to the table! Currently not yet available online, but in the mean time, snoop around here.
Read about Petra Collins and her new show, opening tonight at Capricious 88.

Memories of good times.
Welcomes to the VICE News Private Beta
Behold, dear reader: a message from VICE founder and CEO Shane Smith about our new news website, VICE News, which is now in Private Beta. Join now at vicenews.com.
Hello, my diamonds,
Welcome to the VICE News Private Beta!
We invited you here because we are still testing the site and really want your feedback before we go public. We want to build it with you, our beloved and beautiful audience. So please let us know what you like, what you don’t like, and what you think is just sort of “meh.”
Since we haven’t fully launched yet, there won’t be the depth of content that you will see when we’re out of Beta, but we will be adding more every day. Soon, there will be enough in there to get lost in, bathe in, and fall down 100 different newsy rabbit holes.
It’s all “in the pipe,” as they say.
All of our videos will also be available on our VICE News YouTube channel, so please subscribe to follow our latest news programming.
Stay tuned for breaking stories from Venezuela, Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Central African Republic, Mexico, Thailand, and Brazil, as well as stories from Western Europe, the USA, and China.
We are launching with an English-language site these first few months (simultaneously translating content for our other countries), but over the coming months we will be rolling out full local-language editions.
We couldn’t be more excited to launch this site, and hope that you will help us make VICE News as good as we can possibly make it. We are in this together, and as they say in French, “L’Union Fait la Force,” or “Unity Makes Strength.” So let’s go out there together and change the world.
Now is our time. Let’s take it.
Founder and CEO
VICE Media Inc.
