Like glasses in history have changed

Overview The exhibition at the Design Museum Holon, Israel, traces the key stages of evolution of the seventeenth century to the present glasses, looking at the future through the lens of virtual reality
“Sometimes we tend to forget that the primary purpose of the glasses has always been to correct a defect; but in fact the glasses do not hide the defect, in fact, I emphasize through design.

The exhibition will not only allow to observe the cultural history of the glasses, but also to discover the role of designers in their evolution. ” The speaker is Maya Dvash, curator of the exhibition Overview of Design Museum Holon.

Until April 29, the exhibition will penetrate between the Israeli museum galleries for discovering the curious world of glasses, and sunglasses, in an overview of past, present and future.

The past, to be precise, is represented from the private collection of French Claude Samuel, through which you can see the changes that have marked these precious accessories from the seventeenth century to today: over 400 species that become symbols of eras, new discoveries and of cultural phenomena, including for example those worn by pop icons such as Elton John and John Lennon, the traditional snow goggles bone worn by Eskimos populations or sketches designed for fashion house Pierre Cardin by the father of Samuel.

In addition to this valuable retrospective, the exhibition also features a creative part dedicated to this, entitled “What are eyeglasses?”, With models developed by 40 Israeli artists from fashion, jewelery and industrial design.

The future is represented by the space dedicated to virtual reality that the museum’s Design Lab has set up in collaboration with the French Institute of Israel, the Forum des image and the Holon Cinematheque.
But there’s also a touch of Italy in this exhibition, and it is probably the most intriguing: the Italian Cultural Institute and the Italian Embassy in Israel contributed to the creation of the section entitled “Vision Test” which allows visitors to discover the interaction between sight and design through activities and optical illusions that play with perspective, colors and observation points.

 

Formentera, 15 tips to eat and stay

From Blanco Hotel Es Pujols to some of the best restaurants in the Balearic gem like Caminito, Es Còdol Foradat, Sa Platgeta. As well as some advice to visit it better

Fall in love with Formentera is as simple as it is difficult to move on the small Pitiusa without leaving it with the bank account emptied. The prices of housing, restaurants and clubs are on average a lot higher, also in June and September. To drink two cups of sangria and nibble on a bit ‘of nachos with guacamole and spicy tomato you get to spend even more than 20 euro in one of the historical places of the island, the Blue Bar along the coast of Migjorn. While for lunch with a main course, a drink and another foolishness will not fall below 25/30 euro per person. In short, you have to go easy. Albeit one that lands on the table it is always of excellent quality.

The exclusivity indeed it pays, and very expensive, but at least the rest of the experience is pretty cheap. For there are very few facilities, the vast majority of the beaches is free and, especially in certain areas of the southeast, wild. Even if they are equipped beaches where you pay 10 euro a piece (cot or umbrella that is).

In terms of access to the island, got rid of the hydrofoil or fast ferry (with Balearia will cost twenty euro per head each way, with significant changes depending on the time) the only charge is 4 Euros for cars (2 scooters) to enter the nature reserve of the salt pans of Ibiza and Formentera, in the northern tip of the island, where the number one beach in Europe according to TripAdvisor, namely the Caribbean playa de ses Illetes.

The best way is to move the scooter (20/25 Euros per day) although several local car rentals offer significantly more affordable rates of major international brands. Try for example Formentera Cars, Sandra should ask 35 euro per day for a Panda. About: Formentera is basically Italian exclave not only as to vacationers but also on the front of the car park. Circulate practically only Panda and 500. Mystery.

“Tiberius”, a new taxi to Capri

Drawing on the 500L Living (seven seats), it is a project of the Carrozzeria Castagna. The same that had made the 500 electric convertible built by Gaddafi

It is August of 2011. Two men pushing a car on the dirt road of Bab Al-Azizija, the bunker of Muammar Gaddafi. The car is a 500 Cabrio. Electricity. It has green and gold body, the interior cream color, the fabric roof sand. It is the favorite car of the dictator, just laid. The picture goes around the world and the phone Gioacchino Acampora begins to burn: everyone wants to know how it got there one of his custom-built in the Colonel’s garage …

CASTAGNA_500L_Tiberio_08_LOW-kSS-U43150926983349XOI-1224x916@Corriere-Web-Sezioni-593x443
The architect and designer Acampora is the soul of modern Carrozzeria Castagna: the latest link in a long historical chain. Founded in Milan in 1849, the Castagna builds cars for aristocratic families of Europe. Among the works of mechanical dawn there is also the in lemon wood spider delivered to Alessandro Manzoni. From the carriages we pass the cars, and the property changed hands several times. But the genius loci not translocates: Chestnut is still a dream factory. “The dream factory, which gives elegance to the speed,” writes Gabriele D’advert. unique processing that Most can not. Jewels of the purest Italian craftsmanship humanism. technology projects and known style (and bought) by scholars from around the world. Including, at the time, the family Gaddafi: the 500 over the spoils of war golden-green was born on the basis of the Chestnut Capri. And here the story must make a jump: leave Tripoli.
shadow carousel “Tiberius”, the new taxi of Capri

 

The fleet of taxis in front of the Sorrento peninsula, consists largely of Fiat Marea open above the passengers’ heads. A draft dated 1998, signed by Gioacchino Acampora, regulars of Capri. For taxi drivers of the place, the highly respected architect or ‘ngignere. The engineer. A respectful upgrade. The Tide is different, because every driver is different. It goes down in the Marina Grande splendor and it feels a bit ‘emperors, like Tiberius, who passed here an important part of his life. Taxi drivers in Capri are not “buttoned up” as their colleagues in Milan: they are ciceroni and confidants, are guardians (generous) of secret caves, coves and small squares. Welcome tourists with their masterful savoir faire. “They look like the gondoliers of Venice – Acampora says – make that work for generations, they sing, they smile. They know how to do. ” From today, also they have an argument for enthrall customers: Tiberius.
The roof superpanoramic
Capri Tiberio is the new project-taxi Acampora: public car made from a Fiat 500L Living. A seven seats, as indisputable island clients. A bit ‘shorter of Marea, Tiberius is very manageable. And it is also elegant in its nautical theme. A vehicle that smells of sea and wind. Instead of the trunk, there is a real “beach” by boat, with scratch-resistant floor, finished in teak and mahogany. Barre ‘lifeline’ of stainless steel connects the rear roof pillar to the beach. The roof is stretched by a spoiler (in which the third brake light is inserted) that looks like a flybridge boat, but is designed to partially cover the trunk and repair the passengers on the third row of seats. The panoramic opening of the ceiling is more extensive than that of the original. If the sunroof is essential for traveling in the company of light, the canopy (from steel structure decomposable) is useful for sun protection. The sides are ribbed by reminiscences fifties. The blue-Capri Alcantara covers the pavilion; the Weather Alcantara, in a blown color that smacks of old, plays the sessions, complemented by woven inserts that recall the other side of the wicker trunk. A shower head (with long-barreled four meters) is well hidden in one of the side peaks of the compartment, the need to rinse the car. The stacks are embedded in Tiberius logo, in plain sight. A custom-built compact class that would have made a fool of the Lawyer.
Many requests from Capri and Anacapri
The first model (driven from Milan to Capri by the same Acampora) has already a customer and is about to enter service: white with blue trim. The colors of Capri, sung by Ada Negri ( “Azzurra your folly, Capri, Sea Cloud. Azzurro eternal song of you filled the skies”), but other applications are matches from the two municipalities of the island, Capri and Anacapri is coming, then, a spectacular fleet renewal. It is a detail of negligible importance, given that taxis are one of the most picturesque elements – as well as the most useful – of the place. So much so that the official presentation of Tiberius, on the afternoon of Tuesday, February 16, did not want to miss their mayors and their councilors. “In our atelier in Milan we can build three / four a month,” he says, or ‘ngignere. only just (so to speak) to add a sixty body parts, metal and composite materials, the original minivan, and remove what should be removed, not to gain a gram weight of the car. And happy holidays. “Tiberius”, a new taxi to Capri
