New Naaan Bread Clocks Made from Real Bread Take Inspiration from Dali and a Japanese Pun

PAMPSHADE by Yukiko Morita (previously) is a brand of handmade goods that literally light up the life of bread lovers. The company’s name, a hybrid of “pan” (bread) and and “lampshade”, takes actual slices and loaves of bread, and after giving them an antimicrobial treatment, turns them into one-of-a-kind decorative lamps and clocks.

Their latest creative bread release is inspired by the Surrealist artist Salvador Dali’s famous painting, The Persistence of Memory, and combines it with a Japanese pun for asking the time: melting naan bread clocks!

The Japanese pun, while perhaps known to be a bit corny, is well known. One way to ask “what time is it?” in Japanese is “今何時ですか?”(Ima nanji desu ka?), and in the context of being at perhaps an Indian restaurant or in the presence of naan, someone lacking shame in their sense of humor may make the wordplay quip of “今ナン時ですか?”(Ima naan ji desu ka?).

The result is an eye-catching timepiece that will be sure to impress art fans, Japanese bread jokesters, and of course, naan enthusiasts all at once!

Lettering Artist Rafael Serra Creates Popular Logos in A Vintage Spirit

Pizza Hut, Spotify, Liddl… Inspired by advertising and marketing from the 70s, Portuguese type designer and lettering artist Rafael Serra imagined what modern brand logos would look like if they had been designed some decades ago. Playing with colors and typography, the artist offers a new version of these logos that we know very well today, and gives them a vintage and retro style.

1970 Lancia Stratos Zero: A Crazy Concept from The Wedge Era

Pininfarina and Bertone were two of Italy’s best recognized and most successful postwar coachbuilders. Both Milanese carrozzerie competed for commissions and they debuted outrageous concept cars to impress the public and to entice automakers into choosing one of them over the other. In 1970, at the Turin Auto Show, Bertone unveiled the Lancia Stratos HF, which soon became popularly known by its internal nickname: Zero.

h/t: fristartmuseum

To challenge Pininfarina, whose designs tended to be alluringly curvaceous, Bertone produced a very low, sharply chiseled coupe that appeared to have been carved out of a solid block of bronze. At only 33 inches high, it was arguably low enough to be driven right under a semitrailer. Design experts have commented that the Stratos HF Zero was a significant step between the 1968 Alfa Romeo Carabo and the production Lamborghini Countach.

Even after more than thirty years, the Stratos remains extremely futuristic looking. Nothing about it was conventional, save for the wheels in all four corners. The steering column could be moved forward to allow more room to enter the vehicle. Simultaneously, a hydraulic mechanism opened the wide Perspex windscreen, which served as the car’s single door. Occupants could see directly ahead and above—and little else.

The cost of building the Zero was reportedly forty million lire (about $450,000 in 1970). Nuccio Bertone drove the Stratos on public roads to Lancia’s offices, dazzling all who saw the impossibly low coupe, and marveling at it himself when he drove it under the closed entrance barriers at Lancia’s racing department.

The result of that meeting was the radical Lancia Stratos rally car. Although the production Lancia Stratos, with its midmounted Fiat/Ferrari V-6 engine, did not closely resemble the Zero, the edgy, all-wheel-drive race car would probably not have been built had it not been for the influence of the inimitable Zero.
