The Toaster Project Cool project/book by a designer who decided he wanted to make a toaster (from scratch) himself. The end result may not be a fully functional toaster, but the project makes you appreciate how many processes (and materials) go into even a $10 toaster. - Alex

Joris Laarman, Experimental Dutch designer was recently named an Innovator of the Year for 2011 by the Wall Street Journal. Among his current and future projects: a lamp powered by hamster cells, voxel furniture assembled from cubes glued together by a robot, furniture inspired by bone growth and the flocking of birds, and an online digital fabrication network called “MakeMe” - “like iTunes for manufacturing products.” - Evan

Rijksmuseum falls for young designer  I’ve seen a lot of this stuff before from other innovators (Shapeways, Thingiverse, Assa Ashuach) - but what do you think - is Laarman doing a better job designing and executing, or getting undeserved attention? - Evan
