Can a material used for centuries in classic design ever really have a comeback? We think

Can a material used for centuries in classic design ever really have a comeback? We think so. The evidence: Terra-cotta was a prominent material figure at the latest editions of design shows across the world, taking on contemporary shapes and finishes at Maison et Objet in Paris, Mexico Design Week, Field and Supply in New York’s Hudson Valley—and beyond. At new Parisian eatery La Gare, designer Laura Gonzalez puts three-dimensional “cotto” (terra-cotta) tiles from the Fornaci Brioni x Cristina Celestino collection, made of clays from the River Po floodplain and reimagined in a 3-D geometric shape, on full display. The wall of the tiles, which were inspired by the sculptural hedges of Italian gardens of yore, provides a dramatic albeit warm backdrop against Ikat fabrics by Pierre Frey and emerald dining chairs from Gonzalez’s own furniture line. At this year’s Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse, interior designers Jesse Parris-Lamb swathed the Bauhaus-meets-American traditional kitchen with beautiful terra-cotta tiles. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, artist Bari Ziperstein pairs terra-cotta with Brutalist forms in her latest studio experimentations. “Terra-cotta can be seen in our c...

CerTest Biotec Get CE Mark For COVID-19 Diagnostic Test For BD MAX System

<!–*/ */ /*–>*/ (RTTNews) – CerTest Biotec, along with medical technology company Becton, Dickinson and Co. or BD (BDX) announced Tuesday that the VIASURE SARS-CoV-2 Real Time PCR Detection Kit adapted for the BD MAX System has been CE marked to the IVD Directive (98/79/CE). The molecular test for detection of COVID-19 is available to clinical laboratories in countries recognizing the CE mark. CerTest developed the kit, which is expected to bring rapid COVID-19 diagnostic capabilities to many laboratories across Europe to satisfy the desperate need for the ability to quickly identify COVID-19 patients. The test is a real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for use on the fully automated BD MAXSystem. It detects SARS-CoV-2 in clinical samples by amplification of a fragment of the S gene of the virus. As with all CerTest tests, the VIASURE SARS-CoV-2 Real Time PCR Detection Kit for the BD MAX System is offered in a lyophilized format. The BD MAX System is a fully-integrated, automated platform that performs nucleic acid extraction and real-time PCR providing results for up to 24 samples across multiple syndromes in less than th...

In the morning, the blinds let in light. I lay on a recliner against the wall,

In the morning, the blinds let in light. I lay on a recliner against the wall, with my coat wrapped around my head, and heard the nurse pump the blood-pressure thing. I’d set up a barrier, a towel hanging over the back of a chair, for privacy. I’d been reclining here, listening to ice blow against the window, since about four. Kathy sat up in bed, looking pale, with blue lips and a puffy face. She was still on morphine and seemed serene and angelic. Another nurse walked in, pushing a cart, and wanted to know if she’d felt milk coming out. Kathy stiffly undid her robe and both her hands trembled and I saw the funny webbed bandage across her belly. It was sort of threatening and serious and a little sickening, but I was so happy I didn’t care. I got up then. My pants were open. I shut them. The second nurse wheeled the cart to the edge of the bed. She wore red lipstick and hoop earrings, and had her hair in a tight bun that stood straight up on her head like a bowling pin. She stepped back to let the first nurse, who was older, explain the breast-pumping machine. The older nurse was tall but stooped, and wore a short-sleeved blouse with kittens on it. Kathy’s breasts looked full. ...

Creality’s 3D-printed buckle makes wearing face masks more comfortable dezeen-logo dezeen-logo

Chinese 3D-printer manufacturer Creality is fabricating thousands of buckles that make face masks less painful to wear for medical workers treating coronavirus patients. Small bars on either side of the plastic buckle hold the elastic taut behind the mask-wearer’s head, so that it doesn’t put painful pressure on their ears. Face masks are a key part of protecting front line medical workers from contracting coronavirus, but wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for an extended period of time can be very uncomfortable for the wearer. “Seeing that doctors and nurses in the reports were suffering great physical pain on face and ears caused by face masks, I started thinking about what could help them relieve some discomfort,” said Creality senior designer Guoliang Ji. Ji looked at handles on packaging to create the simple buckle design. Five buckles can be printed at one go in an hour on a Creality Ender-3 3D printer. Creality, which is based in Shenzhen, has been printing the buckles to donate to hospitals in China, and has encouraged people with 3D printers to do the same at home. They began printing the buckles on 21 February 2020, when the disease h...

Complex Geometry Glass Balustrade: Eleftheria Square, Design and Construction

The Glass structure of the West Balustrade in Eleftherias Square Nicosia Cyprus presented a challenge to Pentagonal in terms of 3D modelling, special glass fittings fabric, glass production, installation and testing in order to achieve the goal of this long waiting project. The design and construction of this prominent and futuristic design by Zaha Hadid Architecture project required input and expertise from Architects, Structural engineers, Software engineers, Glass specialists engineers and General contractor builder. A glass balustrade may be more than the functional propose, may be a land mark or point of cultural reunion creating an urban plaza for the city of Nicosia connecting both sides in the last divided capital of Europe. Todays architectural demand for complex geometry has been developed to attain maximum transparency in more organic forms to improve the wellbeing of users and maximize interaction with the outside. This glass balustrade was produced by Pentagonal and has an inclination of 42 along its length with non regular curved geometry to create a glass balcony faced to west. Structural glass elements and software modelling were specifically developed, simulated...

Gus usually hails them—the cabs. He’s a magnet. A few times, he has stopped them with

Gus usually hails them—the cabs. He’s a magnet. A few times, he has stopped them with an errant wave of his hand. Once, a taxi sheered across four lanes of traffic and away from a pair of patient, middle-aged brown people because Gus extended his arm to point out the cupola of an old Ukrainian church in the East Village. I, on the other hand, repel them, like Danny Glover and Spike Lee do. This is why I prefer the apps and the subway. But I try not to be too precious about it because there are cabs that don’t stop for Danny and Spike that stop for me. The evening is tepid and sunlit, typical of August in New York City, but the cold in my bones is late winter. I’m on my way to buy a new phone, too weak from weeks of radiation treatment to walk the remaining twelve blocks. Three empty taxis zoom past, their on-duty lights taunting me. I wait for a familiar, neurochemical heat in my chest and face that doesn’t come. Even the audience of restaurant-goers dawdling across the street does nothing to me. Some of my composure is an unintended side effect of being an enervate survivor; some of it is calculated. Cancer reoccurrences are likelier in people who report more stress. I force a ...
