In keeping with the deconstructed Persian rug trend, Paolo Giordano presented three new carpets for I + I Milan.
Blank space surrounded dots of pattern, traditional prints were broken up by lines and classic carpets took on the air of barcodes in this new work.
Not surprisingly, work by Richard Hutten was also shown by this manufacturer.
One hundred contemporary and urban artists were invited to give Darth Vader's helmet a makeover and the results were astounding. Quite an array of looks were produced, but the headwear of the Sith remains easily recognizable whether adorned by Plasticgod, Gary Baseman, Shag, Dalek, Amanda Visell, Bob Dob, Tim Biskup, Marc Ecko and a host of others. The show has been travelling for four years and will be at Freeman's Auction in Los Angeles in June before moving on to Philly for the auction on July 10. The Vader Project is curated and produced by Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys.

German design trio Sonice Development maintains an experimental vision when designing even the most simple products. Their invention Facadeprinter is a basic software-controlled robot that consists of a two-axis turntable and an airpressure printhead. This large-scale printer shoots its artwork from a distanced position dot-by-dot onto its surface. According to this method, inaccessible and also uneven surfaces, like sides of buildi can be used as a print canvas.
