From Mario Bettini’s Aerarium Philosophiae Mathematicae [Treasury of Mathematics], published in 1648. Bettini (1582 - 1657) was a Jesuit, a mathematician and an astronomer. The book is an encyclopedic collection of mathematical curiosities.
On the flight line at Frankfurt, 1959. Watercolor on Arches paper by Chuck Jones.
Chuck’s travel journals are filled with drawings and watercolors and the written word of his impressions of the world around him. Many of them look like steno pads, some large, others small, but regardless of size, the content is at turns comical, melancholy and always rich in detail.
The V Speaker does not immediately express its hidden talent, but it will instantly impress you with its lovely aesthetic qualities. The object has a wooden base of four timber legs, acting as a pedestal for its white Corian body with a felt-covered front. You might guess that it’s a cabinet or a quirky commode.
Within the top that functions as a table, you will see the subtle integration of a cordless smartphone docking station. This will lead you to question what’s really behind the woolly gray fabric. This Oliver Staiano piece is, of course, a sound system, complete with a wall cable that easily goes unnoticed. The V Speaker lightens up your home’s interior design while delighting your aural sense as well.
