Gripping Stuff

You’ve probably seen the adverts. As AUDI is keen to convince us, its four wheel drive quattro system is so grippy you could drive a quattro saloon down a snow covered mountain road with the control of an Olympic slalom medallist, and although I’m not going to try it, I’m happy to take their word for it. Instead, I’ll just hang out at the quattro Festkogl Alm, the new home of “the quattro experience” in Austria’s Obergurgl-Hochgurgl skiing region. The visitor centre is a partnership between AUDI AG and ski-lift manufacturer Liftgesellschaft Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. Just one more. Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. Right that’s it, got it out of my system now.

Munich design agency Designliga were tasked with translating the famous quattro engineering and technology from under the bonnet wizardry into something more palpable. The unmistakeable AUDI rings on a red background stake a strong visual claim on the mountainside, and the cabin’s wood has been partially clad in a geometric white structure which, along with the white lower storey and natural dusting on the roof, mimics the surrounding snow, as though the building has been partially hidden after a recent flurry. Inside there is all sorts of clever technology. The highlights are the interactive smart tables, topped with a red and white cheesecloth pattern that turns out to be a computer image, dissolving into a video presentation when activated.

J. Hornig

Designed by Moodley Brand Identity | Country: Austria

“For 100 years now, J. Hornig has been bringing delicious coffee to Austria. It’s a popular family-run business with traditional roots. Nevertheless there’s no better time than now to “restart” the brand. To focus on the future and to stop following the trends of the past few decades. J. Hornig still knows how coffee tastes best: Black, natural and home-made. It’s the essence that counts most. And the pleasure when roasting coffee.”

“The brand has a simple appearance, with abstract elements and emphasis is placed on the substance. After all, it’s really about the coffee. The new brand represents a good ambience and comfort – in other words it’s for pleasure. For the pleasure of enjoying your own little coffee moments. The brand positioning is made possible by bringing the craftsmanship to the foreground whilst letting the tradition behind it come to life. Even so, one moves with the times. The entire appearance of the brand should be unmistakable. The use and choice of font, colour and format conform to specially defined design principles.”

Just the Two of Us: Portraits of Cosplay Enthusiasts in their Homes by Klaus Pichler portraits performance art cosplay Austria

We’re less than a day past October 31st and it would be reasonable to assume the people depicted in these portraits are wearing Halloween costumes, but they’re not. In his ongoing series of portraits titled Just the Two of Us, photographer Klaus Pitchler gained access to the homes of Austrain costume play (cosplay) enthusiasts where he photographed the elaborately costumed individuals against the backdrops of their everyday life. Via his artist statement:

Who hasn’t had the desire just to be someone else for awhile? Dressing up is a way of creating an alter ego and a second skin which one’s behaviour can be adjusted to. Regardless of the motivating factors which cause somebody to acquire a costume, the main principle remains the same: the civilian steps behind the mask and turns into somebody else. ’Just the Two of Us’ deals with both: the costumes and the people behind them.

While the costumes are incredible, terrifying, and laughable, it’s the strange juxtaposition of ordinary home life and the unknown identities of each individual that create such great images. See much more here. All images courtesy Klaus Pichler. (via Beautiful/Decay)
