Take Note: Novaolo Wine Honors the Matriarchs of the Winery

1 Share

Maiden names often get lost forever, but Novaolo Wines celebrate the history of the women in the winery’s families. San Francisco agency Pavement developed a unique design the blurs lines and creates an intriguing air of mystery.

Pavement_Novaolo3.jpg

"Recently completed by Pavement, Novaolo is small-batch Pinot Noir produced from the finest fruit, nurtured by the cooling winds of the Petaluma Gap region of the Sonoma Coast AVA. Conceptually, Novaolo is a wine about obscured identities. The name 'Novaolo' pays homage to the two matriarchs of the winemaker's Polish and Sicilian families. Through marriage both matriarchs lost their maiden surnames, 'Novaolo' is quite literally a combination of these two names. Sophisticated calligraphy combined with a diecut label in the shape of a notebook page, visualizes this conceptual label through an unexpected execution. The end result is a wine that stands apart with originality and unrefined simplicity."

Free, Downloadable Book on "Materials, Processes, Principles and Practice" Reveals Forgotten Joinery Techniques

1 Share

Here's a great, free resource for you furniture designers or architects looking for different ways to join materials together. A book called "Cassell's Carpentry and Joinery," first written and illustrated in 1854, painstakingly details all of the joinery techniques--many of them forgotten--that builders used for centuries to create our furniture and structures.

The book focuses on practical techniques rather than theory:

A wide range of topics are covered:

But the part that immediately jumped out at me was the section on joinery, as I spotted some interesting techniques I've never seen before. For example, here's how to create a wide dovetailed surface out of a series of narrow boards. If you did this with contrasting woods, it would be visually striking:

Since there's no copyright on the book, we'll publish here a bunch of images from the chapter on joinery to pique your interest:

Here Joey from Kingpost Timberworks, a New-Zealand-based custom furniture company, tries tackling four of the joints detailed in the book using modern tools:

You can download a copy of the book for free, in a variety of digital formats, here.
