This week on Dezeen

Our big news this week is Dezeen featuring in Apple's launch movie for the iPhone 5. The story was picked up by MacRumours last night and was so popular it knocked our servers out for a moment.

Bill Moggridge 1943-2012

On Sunday the sad news reached us that Bill Moggridge (above), creator of the first laptop computer, had passed away. Other news included the expansion of Moscow to double its size in the next few decades and the Praemium Imperiale arts prize being awarded to Danish architect Henning Larsen.

So-So Chairs by Jean Nouvel for Emeco

Dezeen has also been in Paris this week for Maison & Objet, where we spoke to Jean Nouvel about his new chair for Emeco (above) and selected our top ten products from the show here.

OMA at Venice Architecture Biennale

Our series of movies that Dezeen filmed with OMA in Venice was popular this week too, focussing on "architecture with a degree of social conscience” by anonymous local authority architects in the 1960s and 1970s, including the controversially demolished Pimlico School (above).

Dezeen Jobs redesign

Finally, you might have noticed we've redesigned our recruitment site Dezeen Jobs, with a new colour and font, bigger headlines and text, and a number of new features including a Job of the Week slot.
