petrol station lounge.

Well this is quite lovely, as created by Sophie Valla Architects:

“the construction of the north-south subway presented amsterdam north with the opportunity to turn the center of district into a park. sinking the nieuwe leeuwarderweg highway by seven meters allowed to merge three existing green spaces to create a central recreational zone for the residents of the area. located in a site where two gas stations from the eighties were going to be demolished, buildings mirror each other on both sides of the entrance – uniquely suited for public gathering.”

i’d like to sit there, in winter, and have a coffee.

carl fudge.

Very, very cool.  Heavily influenced by Vorticism.

“The works presented by Carl Fudge follow the success of his exhibition The Black Country, presented by Galerie Richard in New York in 2011. Fudge is recognized as one of the first painters to incorporate digital processes into his technique. Fudge’s work refers to an area in the West Midlands of England. This region became intensely compromised during the industrial revolution, as coalmines, iron foundries and steel mills had left their black mark on the landscape. Fudge found inspiration in a series of woodcuts picturing this region by artist Edward Wadsworth, a member of the avant-garde Vorticism movement. Wadsworth’s woodcuts of slagheaps and furnaces provide a point of departure for Fudge in this new group of paintings and woodcut prints. Fudge’s ability to retain the influence of Wadsworth’s traditional woodcuts, even while deconstructing them through a digital process, is truly fascinating.  Because this series uses mostly a red palette, the viewer may decipher images of a crumbling city plagued by turmoil. In this way, this exhibition has a pulse that strikes a chord with the economic crisis we find ourselves in today.”

origins of IEDEI (2004-2007)

Far before IEDEI was turned into a car blog, (then subsequently shut as that) there was a series of photographs I was putting together between 2004 and 2007 for which I was using the “IEDEI” label.  There were supposed to be 1000 of them (youthful overambition), however in the end only 15 or 20 were made.   Photography, however, is about to make its way back to me big time in the next few weeks and months—with a purchase of a very special camera!

Here are some of those “original” IEDEI photos taken between 2004 and 2007….and displayed with various iterations of the IEDEI logo—-some cool, some not so much!  Either way, they are inspiring to the future of this site and remind me of what originally started the site.

Leonello Design is a design company affiliated with the likes of Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, Zagato, and Touring Superleggera—-working on scale models and designs for them and other projects.

I’m not sure if any of them are available as prints or not, as not much is mentioned on their site.

Giugaro and the Lotus M70 (Esprit)

Before the Lotus Esprit became the Lotus Esprit…it was known as the M70.  Penned by Giugaro (Italdesign) and quite a big step for Lotus as a company; It launched Lotus into the realm of supercars.

I have to say that the Series 1 Lotus Esprit is a pretty great looking car….and the M70 definitely looks like the purest expression of the design (obviously!).

Here are some original ideas thrown around for the M70:
