OQ #29

1. This is something known as Funktionide, created by German designer Stefan Ulrich. What exactly is it?

Picture 1 depicts something that was released in 2003. Picture 2, in 2005.
Put fundae.

3. "In the teeming metropolis of Mumbai, four people separated by class and language are drawn together in compelling relationships. Shai, an affluent investment banker on a sabbatical, strikes up an unusual friendship with Munna, a young and beautiful laundry boy with ambitions of being a Bollywood actor, and has a brief dalliance with Arun, a gifted painter. As they slip away from familiar moorings and drift closer together, the city finds its way into the crevices of their inner worlds."
Official synopsis of which film?

4. The first awards were held on February 11, 2009, at the Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, NY. Approximately 300 people attended the event and dozens were turned away. The event was hosted by CNN anchor Rick Sanchez and featured an in-person guest appearance by MC Hammer and a video appearance by Shaquille O'Neal. The second awards were held at the Times Center in the New York Times building in Manhattan. Awards are usually presented in 26 official categories.
The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is the primary sponsor of the awards. The awards are organized by the co-founders of the Brooklyn-based startup company Sawhorse Media.
Identify the awards, and tell me who they honour.

5. Hand drawn map of something drawn by whom?

6. sitter for all the Crucible quizzers out there: The name of this company is derived from the surname of the company's Greek founder, Sotirio Voulgaris, who began his career as a jeweller in his home village Paramythia, where his first store is still seen. In 1877, he left for Corfu and then Naples. In 1881 he finally moved to Rome, where in 1884 he founded his company and opened his second shop in via Sistina. The current flagship store in via dei Condotti was opened in 1905 by him with the help of his two sons, Constantino and Giorgio. (unrelated to question: During the Second World War, Costantino and his wife Laura even hid three Jewish women in their own Roman home.) The store quickly became a place where the world's rich and famous came for the unique, high quality jewelry designs combining Greek and Roman art. What?
