Pendulum sound machine from kyoueidesign on Vimeo

How sweet is this? Japanese designer Kouichi Okamoto's 16 brass pendulums making music on and with a record player. Several machines can be used at the same time with plates of varied sizes to create an orchestra of tinkling sounds. Cute.

Promenade box packaging

Designers Journey of Oslo designed this box packaging for Promenade for Norwegian wine supplier Vinordia using lots of French cliches. French street scenes, the Eiffel Tower, perfume, un cafe, Le Monde newspaper, geese are among the images used to create Parisian chic and a European experience even before you even taste the wine. So, feel like a glass of wine?
