A Look Inside Nike CEO Mark Parkers Office

a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-1The internal happenings of Nike‘s Beaverton locale are often kept to a slight whisper, which has probably contributed to the brand’s success. Remote from the bustle of R&D and beside the marketing department sits Mark Parker – CEO of Nike. I originally posted images of his office a few years again but Obscura Magazine has released a peek inside the ‘newly-redesigned’ office of “The World’s Most Creative CEO” (according to Fast Company) in their latest issue, providing a new perspective on the successful businessman. An infamous bust of Lincoln, signed Air Jordans, and an array of vintage war-era paintings create a unique aesthetic all their own, with the office seeming more like a ‘home away from home’ than a workspace in the traditional sense. Enjoy a look, then head over to SILLY THING to pick up a copy of Obscura Magazine Issue 14.a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-2 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-3 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-4 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-5 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-6 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-7 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-8 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-9 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-10 a-look-inside-nike-ceo-mark-parkers-office-11

The History Of Daft Punk’s Helmets

Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk were two French guys who wanted to make dance music, and keep all the focus on just that – the music. In order to strip their personalities from the project completely, they linked up with special effects master Tony Gardner to help them design helmets that would that would shield their identities, essentially rendering them robots who make killer shit to dance to.  Mixmag‘s new mini-documentary, Daft Punk: Behind the Helmets is a visual history of the now-infamous headgear, from it’s early iterations with hair, to the ultra-sleek models of 2013. Watch it above. Seriously.
