A billboard powered by oranges

April 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Another really fun ad, this time by DDB in Paris for Tropicana.

We created a billboard that harnesses the energy from oranges to illuminate a neon sign that reads “Natural Energy”. Through several thousand spikes of copper and zinc, a lot of wiring and 3 months of testing we managed to make a giant multi-cell battery powerful enough to light up a billboard. The custom build was produced by Unit9 in collaboration with director Johnny Hardstaff who created the accompanying 90 second film.

Advertisement or not, this looks like it was a really cool endeavor. Gooooo science! (via i believe in advertising)

Wooden business card case

These oak business card cases are handmade by Masakage Tanno in Asahikawa, Japan exclusively for the Scandinavian shop Mjolk. In February the team at Mjolk took a trip to Studio Tanno where they shot photos of his woodworking studio that revealed an incredibly quality of craftsmanship, something that’s quite rare these days.

Spotless Table

The Spotless Table is a fun new concept by Dutch designer Jenna Postma (previously). The surface of the side table is embedded with six ceramic coasters that can easily be removed for quick cleaning. The minimalist in me heartily approves.

Rubber band typography

I’m a sucker for physical type, and this project is no exception. Design student Erik Berger made this fun typeface out of a pound of rubber bands. (via typegoodness)
