Shining360 / Claire Hentschker

Shining360, a scary virtual reality map of Stanley Kubrick’s film The Shining is the latest work of Pittsburgh-based visual artist Claire Hentschker.

Employing a process called ‘photogrammetry,’ the entirety of the film is broken down into still frames, and three dimensional models are extracted from individual scenes by computing depth from the series of images. The resulting 3D fragments of spaces are explored in 360 degrees along the film’s original camera path. The audio is the result of stretching and manipulating sections the film’s original score (via).

Chaise Nicolle

Jerome Lepert nicolle chair

The timeless mid 1930’s Nicolle chair and stool designed by French craftsman Jérôme Lepert and manufactured from the company of Paul Henry Nicolle. Originally designed as a robust, ergonomic and stackable seat for industry workers, Nicolle became very popular during the 1950’s French factories and workshops.


These days the range is still in production by Nicolle company and they claim to apply the same steel stamping and welding techniques, as were used for the original. The iconic whale tail backrest is always removable and the seats available in 4 heights. New addition is an optional leather seat pad (last image). Comes galvanized or in any RAL color.
