Rapha is offering a series of Tour of California caps available only at the race stages themselves again after working last year with Delaware-based type foundry House Industries. This collaboration was part of a series of cycling-related projects to promote the release of their then-upcoming font family Velo Serif. Continuing again in 2015 Rapha reached out to Colophon to design their ten-stage set of caps, each with their own fun colorways and patterns. Read more from the designers here.
Some time ago I had the opportunity to flip through Paul Sahre‘s flat files in his Chelsea studio. It was a pretty interesting collection ranging from work by friends, his own work, and a bit of everything else in between. Sahre’s blog From the Flat Files gives everyone a chance to take a look at what he’s got stashed away, highly recommended.
Emeco (Electric Machine and Equipment Co.) was founded in 1944 where it began manufacturing it’s iconic 1006 model chair on contract for the US Navy. Still made by hand in their Hanover, PA factory today as it was then of 80% recycled aluminum through a 77 step process. Light, strong, classic. Not just for boats and submarines anymore, they’re all over the world in cafes, homes, offices, you name it.
