FANCY FOOTWORK

Nike CR Mercurial Vapor Superfly III

 

Cristiano Ronaldo’s foot work has been enhanced this season by a special camouflage technology created by his sponsor Nike. The new Nike CR Mercurial Vapor Superfly III creates the illusion that Ronaldo is about to turn in one direction, when actually his feet are about to move a different way. This represents a new milestone where technology, design and fashion are harmoniously integrated to create a truly superior product. 

TARA DONOVAN

Styrofoam cups

 

Using ordinary disposable objects such as straws, styrofoam cups, tape and paper plates, Tara Donovan creates site-specific sculptures that invoke forms found in nature. These monumental installations require hours of tedious assemblage and attention to detail. The result is a truly remarkable transformation for the mundane to the exquisitely beautiful.

Otto Jakob

One of the few jewelers who’s work transcends the realm of ornament into the practice of fine art. Jakob exhibits at the Daniel Blau Gallery in Munich, Colnaghi in London and at TEFAF in Maastricht.
