George Lois Esquire From 1962 to 1972, George Lois changed the face of magazine design with his ninety-two covers for Esquire magazine. He stripped the cover down to a graphically concise yet conceptually potent image that ventured beyond the mere illustration of a feature article. Lois exploited the communicative power of the mass-circulated front page to stimulate and provoke the public into debate, pressing Americans to confront controversial issues like racism, feminism, and the Vietnam War. Now you can check the collection at MoMA, NY as a visual timeline and a window onto the turbulent events of the 1960s. - VIA MoMA www.moma.org www.georgelois.com

Elegance in Motion The top French fashion house Hermès has teamed up with Eurocopter to creater a luxury helicopter. The interior has been covered in fabrics and leather to minimise noise and vibration, including Toile H, a material used for Hermès travel accessories since the 1920’s.“This is a genuine collaboration in industrial design and one that is unusual given our respective areas of expertise. By working so closely together, and combining the talent of Eurocopter’s engineers with that of our designer, Gabriele Pezzini, and our skilled craftsmen, both companies have taken a major step forward in improving the experience of travel by helicopter,” said François Taverne, Chairman of Hermès Gainier. www.hermes.com www.eurocopter.com

Jonas Wiehager Have you ever seen an icon "¥$£" on the street and wondered what is the connection between it and YSL? Actually it's by Jonas Wiehager, the founder of Sportif, Stockholm, and there is no connection between it and YSL. Actually, ¥$£ refers to "¥our $weden £uxury" and we think, although we didn't ask Jonas the question, it might be a little joke on the fashion world and drive the consumers to rethink about the term fashion. Here is a short interview with Jonas. Let's take this chance to know more about the man behind the scene. www.sportif.se images © Jonas Wiehager

Hello Jonas! As Eero described you as a famous Stockholm character, could you please introduce yourself to our readers? Born in May 1966 in Stockholm, started skating @ 12 & Snowboarding @ 15. First as an Am then Pro doing the local tours & also the Euro tours competing in slalom, moguls, 1/2pipe, derby & slope style. Then after I broke my back a couple of times I focused my energy on the local club scene

Design&Lif e / 2008 i ssue 13

playing records & doing clubs.

How did you start to run the street fashion business - Boutique Sportif? Being the manager at the skate-stores Streetstyle, Systemett & G-spot in Stockholm. I saw a gap in the market for street-wear and opened Boutique Sportif in 1998 with my brother Thomas.

I heard that you do graphic design too. I have always been art-directing catalogues & flyers for the companies I worked for, so when we opened Boutique Sportif I started lo learn the Adobe programs to design stuff for the store.

What inspires your works the most? Mostly everyday life in Stockholm. But also travel, history, politics & money.

Do you think there is any different between street-wear in Europe and in the rest of the world? It definitely has it’s own look’s all over the world. I think I’ve seen it all, but it still surprises & inspires me. It’s

Design&Lif e / 2008 i ssue 13

shooting off in so many new directions.

What kind of music do you like? I was brought up on Abba & Pop, then exploring different genres like punk rock, rock, Jamaican music, and now I mostly listen to rap.

About Boutique Fräsh, how did you start it? Why d i d y o u wa n t t o h a v e t he fa ir ? I h ad n o place in Scandinavia to show my own collections, so I started the show. It started small with 10 brands in a friend’s art gallery. The second show was 70 brands @ a hotel, we are planning the next show right now @ Berns salonger and will have over a 100 brands.

Do you cook? What is your comfort food? Cooking i s m y h o b b y, i t ' s a g re a t w a y t o re l a x a l i t t l e everyday. I prefer the European cuisine: Swedish, Italian & of course French. My favourite dish? Depends on what’s fresh for the season.

hello, GINA! BMW recently revealed the GINA light visionary model concept car, an innovative new exploration in car design. Instead of the traditional steel and plastic body shell, the GINA concept uses a textile fabric starches over a wire frame. This unique idea allows the car’s skin to change shape, stretching to match the position and curve of the wire frame. This idea is demonstrated in the ‘blinking’; headlights and the flexibility of the car doors as they open. The project began by questioning the purpose of a car’s body and exploring new possibilities. Chris Bangle, director of design for BMW, discuses the project in the video below. The car is currently on show at the BMW museum in Munich, Germany. www.bmw.com www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTYiEkQYhWY

The History�

Camper is one of the most famous shoe brand based in Spain. It was started as a shoe factory in 1877 by Antonio Fluxà. The historical and social changes that occurred in Spain during the 70's were reflected in a new way of life. New styles, new concepts.With the knowledge and efforts of two generations, the grandson of Antonio, Lorenzo Fluxà, created CAMPER (“peasant” in Catelon) in 1975 and renovated the traditional shoe making methods and moderated the craft concept to design products on a basis of function, freedom and creativity. And today, CAMPER is the senior company in the sector in Spain, having maintained its activity without interruption over the course of four generations.

The Graphic

Graphic communication has been a fundamental part of Camper since its foundation. Since selecting the new name CAMPER in 1975, they began to think about how to spread the name and how to transmit the idea of Camper. In 1981, they have changed the logo to fit its first store in Barcelona, a red background with white text, and accidentally began the true graphic history of CAMPER. The identity started to be used both inside and outside the store; bags, boxes, posters, displays, advertisements, catalogues... and all of them became a part of the brand’s universe.

After selling their shoes in the multi-brand store for years, Camper realized they need to create an atmosphere of Camper image to communicate with their existing customers and reach their potential fans. The shop is created a casual atmosphere with self-service concept and display shoes all on flat form. The stocks are applied by models and sizes as part of store decoration. Every Camper is different with its own personality, and they all transmit a reflection of each locations of each cities with the center spirit of Mediterranean - the roots of Camper.


Camper is a brand inspired by the history, culture and landscape of Mediterranean; it is just like its graphic reflecting a history of irony, humour, and imagination.

Casa Camper is a genuine 100% Camper product and not a licensed brand extension. Twenty two years after opening the first shoe shop in Barcelona, Camper now open their first hotel in the Raval district in collaboration with Vinçon's Fernando Amat and Jordi Tió. It is an outstanding building located at the busy cross section at Raval disctrict, Barcelona. It is also a multicultural district, and the fusion between tradition and the avant-guard creates a flavor in sync with the Camper values.

Saturday party soup

Inspired by Borscht

I love to cook and collect recipes, but I never exactly follow the steps. For me, cooking should be playful. Remember, always put your imagination to someone’s recipe and bring it to your vision. 1/2 recipe rules are easy and healthy. Modern people are always in a hurry, and I believe, with 1/2 effort, 1/2 steps, 1/2 fat, 1/2 time of cooking, will also bring you to a lovely cooking experience and healthier dish. That’s why I called this chapter “1/2 Recipe”. Cooking is art. Let’s play!

Saturday afternoon party soup

serve 8

Party at home should be playful, but less stress. I found Saturday afternoon is the best party time. Most time I prepare lots of finger food, dip sauce, snack and fruit, however, hot savory soup always popular among guesses. In summer time, tomato is in season and the sour and sweet flavor is suitable for cooking no matter in soup or dishes. This recipe is inspired by Borscht. Lots of tomato and vegetable are applied, but adjust some ingredients for the spirit of easy and healthy of “1/2 recipe�. In addition, this soup is also a great idea for light meal. Served with bread, noodle, or rice, that will be a satisfied option.

what you need... 1/2 cabbage 2 carrots 2 onions 3 potatoes 6 tomatoes 1 can of whole tomato 2 beef shanks

how you do... 1. Cut beef shanks into chunk. Blanch meat for 1 minute. 2. Cut all vegetable into big chunk sizes because of long cooking time. 3. Add beef shanks, carrots, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, canned tomatoes into boiling water 4. Add cabbage and cook for another 40 minutes.
