The range of North American-based company ReCORK includes just a few of their own products such as slippers, shoe soles, yoga exercise aids, shoes that will soon appear on the market, and surfing accessories. All of these products feature one thing in common – they are made from wine bottle corks. To support the demand for its products, ReCORK team has recycled and used 100 million corks.

  • WOMEN’S BEACH FLIPS

WOMEN’S BEACH FLIPS USD 48

As I can see from the ReCORK account on the Kickstarter platform, their ideas are popularly indeed. For example, ReCORK shoes that should appear on a market in few months are positioned as the most eco-friendly shoes in the world. The ReCORK team succeeded in raising more than $ 80,000 through crowdfunding for the project implementation even though their own stated amount was only $ 30,000.

Bearing in mind that ReCORK used only half a percent of the 20 billion wine bottle corks produced worldwide every year, it can be expected that their product range will expand considerably in the future.

Hello, let’s talk a little about the history of industrial design.

I was born in the Soviet Union. Many of you, reading these lines about the “red empire”, will have the association with Kalashnikov rifles, bears walking in the streets, and vodka. But this time I would like to talk about one household item without which any Soviet Union’s kitchen or catering establishment cannot be imagined – it is a faceted glass.

It was created back in the time of the Tsar, later improved and released for mass use in the fifth decade of the last century. The faceted glass became the embodiment and symbol of the Soviet peoples’ practicality, rationality and the symbol of the entire Soviet era. Faceted glasses were used everywhere: at homes, in the army, public catering institutions, hospitals, schools and kindergartens. You would find them on water vending machines. It is believed that 10 faceted glasses were produced for every Soviet citizen in the country. This is virtually the only household item that was not in shortage. There were so many of them and they were so long-lasting that faceted glasses, costing several dozen kopecks, can be easily found in the flea markets of Russia and the former Union states even today. Now Russia still produces about 10 million glasses a year. But the variety of modern, plastic counterparts will never compete with the popularity of Soviet glasses.

Hello, I met this year in Venice. Right before the New Year I visited the Murano island near Venice , famous of its glassware made according to the ancient technologies dating back to the 13th century. I was pleasantly surprised about the variety of articles handmade by craftsmen, using their massive experience accumulated over many decades of years. With just a little aids and the power of their lungs, they obtain products of unbelievable shapes that, from the first glance, look like they were made using the latest computer based technologies.

P.S. Due to great popularity, Murano glass is often counterfeit, therefore, please pay attention whether your product has a certificate to confirm its authenticity.

Enjoying my vacation and relaxing on the couch, I was pressing the buttons on the TV panel until I hit the basketball match. But my attention was drawn not so much by the basketball match, but a advertising airship. I immediately became curious why I have never heard anything about “zeppelins”, except for the catastrophe of the legendary “Hindenburg”. From documentaries about the same “Hindenburg” I had the opinion that airships are almost the perfect air vehicles. Their main advantages: fuel consumption dozens of times less than that of aircraft; travel for weeks without the need to land (it would be impressive if there is a supply of airship cruises); possibility to install spacious and comfortable entertainment and recreation areas. Certainly it has disadvantages as well: low speed, high dependence on weather conditions. But I believe with the use of the latest technology, shortcomings could be eliminated and benefits could be further enhanced, since the latest major technological developments were made in the early 1950s. Let me remind that the airships were practically doomed after the Hindenburg tragedy.

I would like to avoid conspiracy theories, but we should remember that after the “Titanic” catastrophe, the shipping industry did not shut down…

Meanwhile, designers from all over the world make every effort to revive airships. I suggest to take a look at the conceptual models I like most:
