Design 70 goes from strength to strength - if you're after some vintage modern furniture (and frankly, who isn't?) click to it quickly. Their links page is also suitably comprehensive. The mid-century modern crowd are surprisingly amenable to linking each other, creating a real community of bent ply enthusiasts. One would have imagined that their business is fiercely competitive, with rival stores constantly loitering around the lobbies of soon-to-be-stripped out International Style office buildings, hoping to snare a job lot of tatty Eames chairs or a couple of Nelson wall clocks.

The architect John Pawson is set to increase his media profile with his upcoming work for Marks & Spencer, the quintessential British department store which will shortly be moving into homewares. This Independent piece explained the background well (the shopping trolleys will be designed by Future Systems, for example - I bet they still won’t be able to go in a straight line), the catalogue by Wink (we think), but the piece has now slipped into the electronic ether and you'll have to pay to read it. Bizarrely, it ended with a poem, the first four lines of which we've preserved for your reading pleasure:

A shop designed by Pawson
Is bound to cause a shock
The bloke who makes Corbusier
Look practically baroque

Hypnosismedia (via scrubbles) is a collection compiled with loving care. The adverts for hypnotism books and materials are our favourite. Just some of the things that hypnotism could bring you: ‘Bring fame and popularity into your life. Be the hit of the party,’ ‘..you can hypnotize at a glance, make people obey your commands, strengthen your memory, develop a strong personality, overcome bad habits,’ ‘Help shy persons to attain self-confidence,’ ‘to gain popularity…success… Big Money!’.

Scans of Creative Computing magazine from 1976 (via boingboing), e.g. 'Russian Computing, one man’s view': ‘Throughout the display, I saw no signs of any minicomputers or microprocessors. Nor, in my entire trip, did I see a single pocket calculator, not even in GUM, the largest store in Moscow.’

All about the Lustron House, courtesy of excitement machine. The Lustron was an all-steel house, a bit ‘like living in a lunchbox’. Visit Lustron Luxury, and the gallery of Lombard Lustrons. In the UK we had pre-fabs, a frequently visited things topic. We highly recommend Greg Stevenson's Palaces for the People, the best book on the topic.

Elsewhere. The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum / Henry Built furniture - evokes the spirit of the mid-century era / designaddict: many, many links / 100 random images pulled from Altavista's image search (warning: not at all safe for work, usually) / Sputnik, a 'whole life catalog'. This Japanese magazine has organised its interview archive by a collection of verbs - inspire, aware, trip, learn, etc. / little geometric movies at Pallalink / Greg.org, a new sidebar addition / is this what the Studio Libeskind scheme will end up like? / the wing shot is a blogging staple. We’re just as guilty, if not more so: I, II.

Underwear through the ages at Austrian retailer Palmers / the mystery of the Amber Room / mines beneath Detroit, tunnels beneath Portsmouth, UK / more troglodytism: photos of the London underground / more maps / controversial stamps (see them here).

The woodcuts of Felix Vallotton (Giornale Nuovo is like having a beautifully produced art magazine, chock full of interesting visual essays, delivered to you several times a week) / anti-golf article ('...they still take up too much space, too much water and disrupt the balance of wildlife') / follow me here, a weblog / a collection of online city weblogs (via kottke). There's nothing like this in the UK, yet....
