The UK’s National Holocaust Memorial

Ten concepts have been shortlisted for the the UK’s National Holocaust Memorial, a civic monument for remembering and learning about the holocaust to be built in the gardens next to the Palace of Westminster. The rich array of ideas on the shortlist, whittled down from 92 entires, shows a breathtaking variety of creative approaches to the solemn brief, from the vast and striking meteorite that forms a vocal point of reflection in Anish Kapoor and Zaha Hadid Architects’ design, to the haunting translucent sculptures above ground that cast light into a subterranean ‘hall of voices’ where visitors hear the accounts of holocaust survivors, a concept by Caruso St John Architects, Marcus Taylor and Rachel Whiteread.

The Psychedelic Music Posters of Günther Kieser

Thank you to PRINT magazine for bringing this exciting exhibition of Günther Kieser’s work to our attention. Considered one of the most important German graphic designers of his time, Kieser's one-of-a-kind style is synonymous with jazz, pop and rock iconography, having worked on posters for Jimi Hendrix, Ella Fitzgerald and the Frankfurt Jazz Festival. “Kieser, Posters” will be displayed at the Bröhan Museum in Berlin until July 23rd, 2017.

Brexit Survival Kit by Karl Anders

ICON magazine has presented an upbeat antidote to Brexit woes, designed by Karl Anders Studio, Hamburg. The tongue-in-cheek design project includes a sunny graphic identity and uplifting ‘survival kit’ for sad or confused Brits featuring stickers, socks, and postcards with witty captions such as "Who needs ancient Rome if you have Stonehenge?”. Whether you love or hate it, its optimism is refreshing and it’s made us wonder what else design could do to help lift the mood of an uncertain nation.

Bus stops from the former Soviet Union 

German photographer Peter Ortner’s book documenting 500 bus stops across former Soviet countries first caught our imaginations when we heard about it last year, so we were thrilled to see Dezeen cover it this week. The project took 7 years to complete and saw Ortner travel to Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, The Crimea Peninsula, Ukraine and Moldova. The striking and surprising array of bus stop designs apparently resulted from a loophole where local communities could design and build of their own bus stops, instead of the central government. Ortner’s project shows the surprising and striking creativity that sprouted against a backdrop of grey, Soviet concrete structures.

Birch Bark Cabinetry by Union Wood Co

Union Wood Co in Vancouver are furniture makers are inspired by the past and use re-claimed wood in their designs. The intriguing bark of birch trees harvested from Alaska is the focus of their new series of cabinets, which has long been used in North American indigenous handicraft for its durability and strength. By pairing it with white lacquered cabinetry, Union Wood Co have updated this tradition and found a contemporary use for the material that frames its mysterious beauty.
