An Estonian office receives a splash of color with an aluminum facade

Estonia-based architectural practice molumba has enlivened a suburban office block with a unique concrete and aluminum screen assembly. The project was commissioned by AS Elering—the nation’s largest transmission systems operator for electricity and natural gas—as a dramatic, three-fold expansion of the preexisting structure in Mustamäe, a southwestern neighborhood in the nation’s capital of Tallinn. Over 140 turquoise mesh piers ring and visually buttress each elevation, a play on historical castellation and Gothic design found throughout Tallinn’s Old Town. The piers are built of full-length aluminum strips measuring 12 to 41 feet, which are in turn welded to a series of connecting bars. Each pier possesses its own steel support structure consisting of two internal, vertical columns fastened to the welded connecting bars. The design of the complex references the spindly and bundled power line, a ubiquitous feature across urban landscapes. AS Elering operates a multi-acre electrical substation next door. According to design lead Karli Luik, molumba envisioned the project as “the brain of the electricity and gas transmission network, monitoring and administrating their vitally ...

A CNC made of wood? And it’s for small-shop professionals

‘); //–> com.realmagnet.MagnetLeads.init(‘OrfhmQgk6sGIKGvE9vw’); com.realmagnet.MagnetLeads.visitPage(); HANNOVER, Germany – The Holzfraese CNC is the world’s first heavy-duty wooden CNC router for professional users. Holzfraese says its router is an automated solution that can realize just about any custom project – requiring no marker pencils, rulers, or T-squares. It can also handle a variety of clamping systems, including vacuum clamping. The machine is made from Koskisen plywood and polymer concrete – and innovative German engineering, of course. “You won’t find another materials combination that is comparable in terms of backlash dynamics, dimensional accuracty at different temperatures, or noise reduction and torsion compensation,” says Burkhard Bessler, the man behind the machine. Bessler saw the need for a machine for small shop owners nervous about getting into CNC. Holzfraese requires minimal setup time, offers a good price-performance ratio, and produces few emissions. Bessler says its ideal for woodworking operations specializing in small-series production, engraving, and any other application r...

For many fabricators, the choice between an air-cooled and water-cooled robotic gas metal arc welding (GMAW)

For many fabricators, the choice between an air-cooled and water-cooled robotic gas metal arc welding (GMAW) gun is easy. Their heavy-duty applications simply demand a water-cooled model because of the high amperage and duty cycle requirements of the job — an air-cooled gun would overheat and fail prematurely under such conditions. In the right application, a water-cooled robotic GMAW gun often can prove beneficial by minimizing downtime, increasing productivity, and reducing consumable costs. These guns typically have higher duty cycles than air-cooled models and operate at higher amperages, which means they can run for longer periods of time. Still, deciding whether an operation would benefit from converting from an air-cooled to a water-cooled GMAW gun involves a careful analysis of several factors. In addition to considering the amperage requirements and duty cycle, a fabricator should consider the upfront costs, potential return on investment (ROI), and the specific application. For example, some fabricators may choose a water-cooled robotic GMAW gun because of the length of their welds — they need a long arc-on time to produce long welds, which generates more heat in the g...

Philips SuperWide Monitor: 4 Ways a Beastly Screen Will Change How You Work

I have long rocked a 24-inch Acer monitor as an extension to my 2015 MacBook Pro at work. When I was first endowed with my auxiliary screen, I was ecstatic. I had productivity on lock. I’d never lose track of a tab again. But my understanding of what a monitor is truly capable of all changed the moment the Philips 49-inch SuperWide Curved Monitor was wheeled into the Inverse office. It arrived on a dolly. Its box stood tall enough that it reached just below the tops of my shoulders (I’m six feet tall). The delivery man struggled to get it through the door, and once I signed off on my extendo package, I knew I was about to embark on a new chapter of my online life. I would be that guy with an office screen the size of a toddler. But I’m not alone. The Philips SuperWide Monitor made its debut at CES 2019 and is now available on Amazon and NewEgg. It’s one of the latest additions to the “ultrawide format” line of screens that is populated by displays with aspects ratios much wider than 2:1, meaning they’re substantially wider than they are tall. They essentially consolidate multiple screens into one massive display, which requires most of them to be curved inward so users can comfo...

You might have seen ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo in native attire or military camouflage but you probably

You might have seen ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo in native attire or military camouflage but you probably haven’t seen him in suit. During a visit to Vietnam, the Nigerian leader joined Hailemariam Desalegn Boshe, former Ethiopian prime minister, and other dignitaries to showcase the works of Chuong, a gifted Asian tailor, based in Hanoi, capital of Vietnam. Dressed in suits, the visitors stepped into the showroom of Chuong, who was awarded “Tailoring Artist” by the state council of Vietnam based on his skills. Let me tell You a sad story !

It happened seemingly overnight. It was 2009, I think, but the specific year doesn’t really matter.

It happened seemingly overnight. It was 2009, I think, but the specific year doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that it was warm. Because one day, every man in America (or at least Manhattan, which, according to this New Yorker cover, is America) finished getting dressed by pulling on his socks and shoes. The next day, men did the same thing—only without the hosiery. The great unsocking was afoot. And then, like a flash flood, they were everywhere. Bare ankles peeking out between suede brogues and beaten-up jeans. Lower shins catching the light in afternoon meetings. Malleolus bones winking from beneath high-cuffed khakis. Think back to that time, right after the crash. Dress codes were still relatively fixed; if menswear was changing, it was in a sharper, more fitted, vaguely more European direction. Suits shrank—Thom Browne was this magazine’s Designer of the Year in 2008. J.Crew’s Liquor Store opened in Tribeca that same year, bringing with it the trim Ludlow suit and plenty of selvage denim whose provenance could only be revealed with a full cuff. Nearly a decade later, the ground has begun to shift. I write this on the first truly steamy day of the year in New York ...

10 best recipes of 2018 — butter chicken to tahini cookies, plus a session margarita

From cheese toasts to brown butter ice cream with brownie chunks, 2018 for us was a story of big flavors with big impact. Out of the hundreds of recipes that we tested, tasted and photographed in the Chicago Tribune test kitchen, the biggest influence came from immigrant traditions. Our favorite recipes of the year include butter chicken with spiced cashews, Korican pork chops, a very personal hack for ramen noodles, Chinese beef noodle soup and lumpia, a Filipino dish. For your dedicated Food & Dining reporters and editors, another big story was saying goodbye to the Tribune Tower test kitchen — built out in 1995, the last in a succession of such spaces in that 1925-era building. But after moving into a new test kitchen, built sky-high on the 40th floor of the Prudential Building, home to the Tribune’s new offices, we immediately got to work. The majority of these, our 10 favorite recipes of the year — plus an easy-sipping cocktail! — come from the new kitchen. Not by design — it just turned out that way. As we look toward 2019 and the dishes and drinks we’ll be testing, tasting and photographing for you, join us in one last taste of the best of 2018. A roundup of the best...

To bring an older apartment or house back to its original glory, you’ll need a team

To bring an older apartment or house back to its original glory, you’ll need a team of expert craftsmen. Take a look inside any restored prewar apartment, and it’s not hard to see the appeal. Spacious layouts with soaring ceilings, intricate parquet floors, and delicate wall and ceiling moldings are the stuff of prewar charm. In a market that feels oversaturated with new developments, old school design lovers and architectural enthusiasts in New York often opt to live in prewar buildings created to accommodate the population boom in the city during the decades preceding World War II. Properly restored, the Old World details that define a prewar interior can offer more than aesthetic charm; they can add some serious value to your real estate, too. Unfortunately, bringing a prewar property back to its original glory is no easy feat. In addition to any necessary infrastructural upgrades, like plumbing and electrical updates and the installation of central air-conditioning, chances are it’s going to take a small army of master craftsmen to bring it back to life. That means highly skilled wood strippers, plasterwork molders, carpenters, tile fabricators and floor restorers who are so...

After facing court over a protest at an abattoir, vegan activist Angela Banovic has bitterly complained

After facing court over a protest at an abattoir, vegan activist Angela Banovic has bitterly complained and lashed her critics. Vegan protestors have been charged after chaining themselves to vehicles at a Melbourne intersection. A vegan activist and Queensland government worker has savaged her critics in a series of online rants, saying coverage of her court case was “scummy”. Angela Banovic, a vegan and activist, was convicted over her role in a protest at an abattoir in Queensland. She was one of the 17 people arrested in connection with the April 8 protest, which saw about 20 protesters chain themselves to equipment inside the Yangan abattoir. The judge also ordered the group of activists split costs worn by the abattoir in the shutdown – $3000 – with the 17 accused paying $180 each. In a series of Facebook posts and comments, the activist said she resents having to pay fines for her role in the protest. “I hate having to give them (the abattoir) $180 but at the end of the day I don’t have a charge against my name and I can travel to Coffs (Harbour) for ETT and to Iceland and Faroes to fight for more animals,” she said in a Facebook comment. “I need to be able t...
