Sir Jonathan Ive honoured with exclusive gold Blue Peter Badge

I really wish I could embed this video of Sir Jony winning the BBC’s Blue peter award but its in flash.  There will be a special episode airing tomorrow night.  I hope we will be able to view this episode in the United Staes at some point.

We also got a sneak peek at one of the industrial designers CNC machines as he made a much larger version of the award for the host our of aluminum.

CBBC’s Blue Peter presents Sir Jonathan Ive with the show’s highest accolade, the gold Blue Peter badge, in a gadget special to be screened on the CBBC channel at 10am on Saturday 16 February.

Float Wall Desk — Shoebox Dwelling

I can not tell you why, but in addition to my small well designed space fondness I also love furniture that floats or is on wheels.  Shoebox Dwelling has a nice post about a new desk called the Float Wall Desk by Dario Antonioni.  It appears to be a bent laminate desk that comes in either oak or walnut with a full length drawer/shelf.  Beautifully designed and well executed.  Currently priced at $699.
