    with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains vineyards and old city center None of this has anything to do with making the actual beer but it sure does make it taste BETTER BARCELONA S BANNERS ARE BAGS In Barcelona we ran across a store that re purposes vinyl street banners to create purses backpacks laptop bags and other accessories But what made their store memorable wasn t their product as much as how they approached the display of their bags The bags stuck to the painted metal walls with cleverly hidden magnetic strips that were placed inside the zippered pouches This simple approach made for a clean and unique display with infinite arrangement possibilities Permalink KEM STUDIO WINS A 2010 I D MAGAZINE DESIGN AWARD I D Magzine Annual Design Review KEM STUDIO WINS A 2010 I D MAGAZINE DESIGN AWARD I D Magzine Annual Design Review I D Magazine just posted their Annual Design Review and KEM STUDIO is proud to announce that it received a design distinction award for KENA

on 164 Fifth Avenue in New York City So if you re in NYC make sure to check it out and email us some photos THANKS CONGRATULATIONS to everyone at Ken A Vision who collaborated with us on this project It s been great to have KENA recognized again after receiving a 2009 IDEA Award from IDSA BusinessWeek Magazine Permalink BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING MAY 2010 BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING MAY 2010 FARMERS During a recent vacation I visited a few wineries in Sonoma Many of them started their spiel in a Taj Mahal like tasting room saying as organic farmers we believe in complete sustainability organic farmers sustainability huh Then we went to Prestons Vineyard where the design of their space wine wine labels and attitude completely synchronized with Organic Farming Remember talk is cheap If you re going to make a commitment make sure you re all in Walk the walk don t just talk the talk SPRING MIX TAPE Download our latest MP3 mix tape here It s designed for drives with the windows down enjoying a cocktail on the porch or a good game of boccie Happy Spring IT S ALL YOU Many of you have been reciprocating by emailing stuff we should check out We ve liked them for so many reasons that we decided to end our Better Design Better Living emails with them So keep sending us the love and they might end up here Swagger Wagon Rube Goldberg Machine Music Video Programmable Magnets Permalink BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING APRIL 2010 BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING APRIL 2010 THEY RE BACK We ve heard from many of you that you have been missing the Better Living emails and we want you to know we missed them for good reasons for the second year in a row we taught our Collaborative Workshop at Virginia Tech we ve been doing a large research project for a 2011 product launch that has been taking us coast to coast and in between Brad has been teaching an Architecture Studio at the University of Kansas and our staff grew by 33 With that and all the other work in the studio we ve been quite busy But just like we re excited for spring we re excited to pick these emails back up Enjoy THE FUN THEORY In previous emails we ve mentioned how simple ideas can have a strong impact Along those lines watch this quick video on how a fun simple idea can change peoples behavior 2010 VIRGINIA TECH COLLABORATIVE WORKSHOP Check out what happens when you get 25 students coming from Architecture Industrial Design Interior Design Landscape Architecture and Visual Communication in one room for ten days working on 3 different group projects Strong dialog some hair pulling a better understanding of collaboration and a lot of amazing work Permalink BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING DECEMBER 2009 BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING DECEMBER 2009 FOOD ART SENSE OF PLACE PART 2 The same article in the KC Star that reminded us of our favorite place to eat also connected us to an artist that made us contemplate the idea of Place As architects and designers we often talk about Place being bricks and mortar long lasting and concrete Outstanding in the Field founder Jim Denevan s art provides an example of how Place can be extremely powerful and temporary He creates massively scaled totally compelling freehand drawings in the sand using primitive tools like a rake or piece of driftwood that last only as long as the ocean s tide takes to change Experience and memory are as equally powerful as the Place itself This is why we strive to design for the human experience in our projects And if that results in a building or product awesome GOODBYE NAUGHTY BUT NICE We really love the neighborhood our studio is in it s eclectic urban and has a lot of character You may notice the next time you visit us that it has a little less character but in this case it s a good thing Naughty But Nice the one story building to the north of ours was demolished recently during the course of a day We caught it on video and reduced it to 1 minute and 17 seconds Enjoy YARD LIGHTS NO 1 Whether you put up holiday lights or not we came up with a quick and cool solution to make that tradition a little more whimsical and cool enough that they can have a second life enhancing a summer evening party in your back yard Have an amazing holiday season we ll be back with more better living in 2010 Permalink I D MAGAZINE ANNUAL DESIGN AWARD I D MAGAZINE ANNUAL DESIGN AWARD The latest issue of I D Magazine just hit the news stand and KEM STUDIO is proud to announce that it received one of three design distinction awards for SP Datapoint a pharmacy computer and label printer designed for ScriptPro Taken from the article on page 93 I love this one Damon said I worked on a desktop computer for the Seattle Public Library that had to withstand a ton of abuse and this one is designed to withstand that and designed to look like it ll withstand that The 2009 Annual Design Review Exhibition is also tied to this award and will be in New York City from June 25 August 28 9 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday at Material ConneXion 60 Madison Avenue 2nd Floor New York NY 10010 So if you re in NYC make sure to check it out and email us some photos GOOD DESIGN AWARD Also we won a Good Design Award from the Chicago

everyone at ScriptPro who collaborated with us on this project Congratulations it s well deserved For more information about SP Datapoint Pharmacy Computer Printer visit ScriptPro or KEM STUDIO Permalink BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING AUGUST SEPTEMBER 2009 BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING AUGUST SEPTEMBER 2009 FOOD ART SENSE OF PLACE PART 1 A recent article in the Kansas City Star Magazine got me thinking about my favorite restaurant Justus Drugstore The food is spot on no debate and can go toe to toe with any restaurant across the country yes even that place in Napa and that one in NYC too Chef Jonathan Justus only serves food that comes from a stones throw away is super high quality and simply prepared But that s not really the thing that is most memorable It s the story that Justus personally shares with all the diners By making it personal you get the passion he has for what he does and you want to be a part of it I know i do DANCING ON GLASS Where should a performance be performed Quixotic Performance Ensemble says anywhere In fact their latest performance included live original music video projections short amazing video and dance performances IN FRONT and ON the actual buildings of the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art It is an amazing group and event that we are proud to be a part of Jon Taylor is Quixotic s Board President Check out these additional photos and remember to think differently like Quixotic did with this performance MAYBE SO MAYBE NO Mayer Hawthorne met Peanut Butter Wolf at a party through a mutual friend gave him a two song demo and never expected to hear from him again But Peanut Butter Wolf was blown away immediately signed him and released those two tracks on a translucent red heart shaped 45 Mayer Hawthorne recently released his amazing first full length album A Strange Arrangement which has been getting a ton of press Here s a toast to those who put themselves out there and for those who believe in them Maybe So Permalink KEM STUDIO WINS IDEA AWARD presented by IDSA sponsored by BusinessWeek Magazine KEM STUDIO WINS IDEA AWARD presented by IDSA sponsored by BusinessWeek Magazine We are super pumped to announce that we won a coveted IDEA Award from IDSA BusinessWeek Magazine with our client Ken A Vision for KENA KENA a digital microscope received a bronze in a competition that included over 1 600 international entries and beat out 349 finalists to become one of the 150 winners It was featured in the main image of the Medical Scientific Category Designs to Improve Your Life and also has it s own page on IDSA BusinessWeek In response to this news we posted a short and fun video that was part of our entry describing KENA Enjoy THANKS CONGRATULATIONS to everyone at Ken A Vision who collaborated with us on this project It is well deserved Permalink BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING JUNE JULY 2009 BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING JUNE JULY 2009 BLURRING LINES When we designed Paragraph Gallery we anticipated artists would take what we created and blur the line between art and architecture creating a unique experience for the end user Fortunately for us and everyone that visits Paragraph Gallery this month Emily Sall and Rebecca Ward did just that Check it out MANCHESTER GROOVE A couple of years ago a friend lead me down a flight of stairs in an old building hidden in a corner of Manchester Turning the corner sweet sounds of soul from the 50s 60s filled the air People were grooving beehives were bouncing champagne was flowing It all lead to one of the most memorable nights Even though this mix will never recreate that experience I promise that it will get your feet tapping hips swaying and feeling good during the summer heat SIMPLE SOLUTIONS BIG OPPORTUNITIES Watch this quick video on how Nike slightly tweaked an embroidery machine to simply create a product that increased performance and decreased weight Permalink BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING MAY 2009 BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING MAY 2009 DON T FORGET YOUR ROOTS Over the past several years it seemed liked the the record labels have lost their love of music at the least they certainly lost giving people the experience of enjoying music But we found hope that the pendulum is starting to go back the other way Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys recently came out with a solo album I went directly to the label to purchase the album and was able to get it on vinyl awesome But here s where they got smart Because they know that I am impatient I was able to enjoy the music right away with the mp3 download that was part of the purchase It s a small change but it makes the experience so much better Sometimes it s those small things whether it s in music or design that make the difference between success and stagnation THINKING DIFFERENTLY You have probably already seen this but that s okay because this is a great example of thinking differently and a small change that causes quite a reaction A QUICK VIDEO Permalink IDEA Award Finalist We were recently notified that we are a finalist in the IDEA awards presented by IDSA and sponsored by BusinessWeek Target and AutoDesk KENA a Digital Microscope we designed for Ken A Vision was one of the finalists selected from 1 631 international entries This is the Academy Awards for the Industrial Design community so we are extremely excited about our nomination and really enjoyed getting to tell our client We are both anxiously waiting the July issue of BusinessWeek for the announcement of the winners Permalink BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING APRIL 2009 BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING APRIL 2009 PERSONAL CONNECTIONS When I purchase a carton of eggs from Campo Lindo Farms a local free range farm at the grocery I always get a personal connection to the family their farm and the hens ladies It s quite smart how they ve created that connection Through a small piece of paper placed in each carton they let me know if the ladies have been enjoying the warmer weather if a new calf was born or if their kids have been helping out around the farm It s undeniable how much a sustainable caring and honest message can improve our lives In this case it even makes the product taste better EAT BETTER Next time you are in Portland Oregon make sure you take time to visit Pok Pok This restaurant started out as a street cart after the owner honed his technique on the streets of Thailand Vietnam and Cambodia Fast forward two years and his cart has become a cool restaurant in an eclectic part of town and was awarded restaurant of the year in Oregon DREAM BIG Never stop thinking differently dreaming BIG A QUICK VIDEO Permalink Housewares Show Seems like we re always in Chicago but that s okay because we get to see family friends and visit some of our favorite restaurants This time we were up there for the Housewares Show There were some interesting designs and just about everyone had some sort of environmental statement Some environmental approaches were good some were really poor and bamboo seemed to be the default But there was no better solution than the starch based cookware and tableware products by Bioshphere that can be used in the oven freezer and microwave Best of all it naturally biodegrades in 40 days Permalink BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING MARCH 2009 BETTER DESIGN BETTER LIVING MARCH 2009 GOOD TUNES Lately we ve been listening to a couple of great free podcasts First is Freddy Anzures propsRadio a friend from the design world Second is STONES THROW RECORDS especially their Hawthorne Radio podcast Also Daptone Records released a really good toe tapping free compilation including Sharon Jones The Dap Kings on AMAZON Check it out EAT BETTER The IDSA Board met in Las Vegas for the transition meeting at the end of January While there Jonathon Kemnitzer got away for a quick breakfast at BOUCHON Thomas Keller s restaurant Whether it s food a product or a building it s always a great experience when somebody can take something so simple and make it so amazing In this case it was white sausage scrambled eggs and a croissant THINK PLAY Right now our lives are pretty complex but remember to play like Kevin Carroll A QUICK VIDEO Permalink Design Thinking Presentation Brad and Jonathon gave presentation to several hundred students faculty and outside guests while at Virginia Tech on Design Thinking The presentation focused on using a consistent frame work to facilitate multiple discipline collaboration along with the importance of paying attention and living design Here s a link to the presentations intro highlighting projects and images from better living and outro which challenged the attendants to pay attention on how they were going to make life better through design Permalink VT News The VT news featured the workshop we are currently teaching announcing the presentation of the students design proposals Click here to read the article Permalink Integrated Design Studio We are in the midst of teaching a workshop at Virginia Tech that brings together students from the Architecture Industrial Design Interior Design Landscape Architecture and Graphic Design school The purpose of this two week project is to demonstrate how interdisciplinary collaboration can liberate and invigorate design and design thinking The students are challenged to examine not only what you think about while you design but HOW you think A blog has been created to share information and document the process Click here to view share and post your own comments Permalink AWARD REWARD We are honored that two of our projects have recently been recognized for design excellence Actually the greatest reward has been sharing the news with our clients and seeing the gratification it has given them that s what better living though design means to us DATAPOINT a product for ScriptPro received a GOOD DESIGN award and COOL STRETCH a product for Brown Medical received MONSTERS OF DESIGN award Permalink NYC espresso On a recent visit to NYC we stumbled across Macchiato a boutique espresso bar Given that we are admitted espresso and design addicts we dropped a couple loud oh s and ah s when we discovered the shop while walking past on a cold day One of the baristas Tal obviously noticed we were jonz n for our afternoon fix and offered to buy us a shot
