Greetings from Philip


I just wanted to let you know what I’ve been up to recently in my idle moments in Radiohead.
Over the past year or so, I’ve written and recorded an album which I’ve called Familial. It will be released on Bella Union on 30th August, except for USA and Canada, where it will be released on 31st August through Nonesuch.
If you’d like to download a free track from my album then please go to The song is called By Some Miracle and is available now.
I’m also doing some shows and there’s information about those on the website too.
Thank you x

Alphabetical Seating: Set of 26 Letter-Shaped Kids’ Chairs

While neat in theory, and fascinating in practice, some letters look to be a bit more comfortable than others – the A has nice back and angled form, the B is as basic a chair as it can bee, and the C makes for a simple curved stool. Even X, Y and Z are surprisingly functional, but some parts of the alphabet in between, well, they might be the last designs picked in class by discerning children.

Alphabet Seats

Dutch designer Roeland Otten made these concept pieces with kids in mind – a way to fundamentally integrate literacy into the physical furniture, a sort of subliminal and supplemental curriculum. The S and T, though, look like they would hurt any back pressed against them for long periods while other letters (like the P) seem too forced into their role. And is there not a risk of the ‘cool kids’ monopolizing the most prized chairs coveted by their classmates?

Perhaps another strategy would have been to let awkward letter shapes become the basis for other pieces of furniture. The set of all-black, glossy chairs is nice, but a few side tables, work desks and so forth would seem a good way to fit in the alphabetic odds and ends left over when the ideal chair candidates were exhausted.

Also, why the mix of capital and small letters? Seems like smalls might have been better all around. Finally, while these look great in black on a blank white backdrop, some color might help them stand out in a more colorful kids room or classroom space. Regardless, here are 10 other related designs if you are at least sold on the idea of physical real-life fonts.


Another One Of My Houses: Moving In Soon

Modern House Skrhak

You should have no trouble seeing the forest through the trees while standing anywhere inside or outside this stunning home. The residence is less of a house and more of an all-in-one exterior experience, flowing with green roofs, outdoor patios, expansive decks and a seamless clear-sided swimming pool (though one could wish it were deep enough to dive into from the rooftop above).

A central green courtyard brings life to even the innermost spaces of the dwelling, with plants overhanging from its walls above and trees sprouting up from the divided grass-or-gravel ground below. It might not be surprising but: these same designers have a history planning resorts and multi-family vacation destinations, experience which has clearly informed this single-family house.

A series of rough-cut rectangular stone pillars serve to establish a border fence that is at once semi-transparent and secure, with slots that allow for limit views between each vertical post. For the garage doors and entry gates, sticks of bamboo fill gaps between rocks.

A second-floor terrace surrounds a cozy lofted set of lounge and bedroom spaces, likewise covered in colorful organic growth that doubles as a privacy divider and light filter.

Semi-exterior zones are covered by spaced-out wooden slats that provide shade but offer no rain protection, while more-interior transitional areas in the plan have sealed solid-wood ceilings.

In the basement living room area, a built-in bench provides a cushioned viewed through wall-to-wall glass of the bubbling waters of the swimming pool outside, giving even this underground space a relevant connection to the outdoors. These images shot by Patrick Bingham Hall bring this design by Guz Architects alive, but no number perfect perspective photos could do such a series of spaces justice.
