What Would a Chandelier Look Like if Were Overtaken by Spiders?

Marcel Wanders, uber designer of the past five years, has created this recent addition to the stable of fantastic, high-concept lights for Flos.  The concept is to take an old school chandelier and treat it as it were in a haunted house with some overzealous spiders which had made the most lethal web imaginable. The […]

Polar: A Mobile Phone Concept by Yuta Watanabe

This is one of those concept pieces where I just think ah-ha! Why did I not think of this first? The idea is quite simple: it’s a phone for cold climates which means it’s designed to be used with thick winter gloves. I really have nothing more to say about this design because it’s such […]

Cityplates by not Neutral

Cityplates by NotNeutral are old news in the hyper acute world of cool trends being exploded into the blog ether at a mile a minute. But I haven’t written about them and maybe that’s what matters most to me, art least. The graphic nature of the map is so eye popping as to attract every […]

Stool Wraps by Arik Levy: An idea for the space challenged magazine readers

Arik Levy has created a design that takes recycling to new levels while also creating an opportunity for those magazine hoarders out there to remain fashionably clutter free and still keep their magazines. We all know these people. Usually they are older single people who have saved every magazine for the past forty years because […]

Domu (Home) by WhiteFruits

“Home” is one in a series of ingenious platewares by the Czech outfit, Whitefruits, that uses an illusion relief technique to create a 3D form out of a nearly flat surface. In the case of Home, the plate is faceted to look like a home. The technique it simpl, but unusual enough to awe your […]

Honeycomb by Quinze and Milan

Quinze & Milan is a design studio run by the mad man and egotist, Arne Quinze. Quinze, for American subculture freaks, was partly responsible for the massive wood structure in the Blackrock desert during Burning Man 2006 known as the “Belgian Waffle“. Before the Belgian Waffle came about, I had never payed much attention to […]

NAT, designing nature exhibition on Revver

Over the next few weeks, I thought I would start adding some of my favorite architecture and design related videos from the awesome video sharing site, Revver. These next few are from Designguide.tv. I think you’ll find these videos pretty compelling. A project that is a cross between an exotic Garden of Eden and an […]

Over the next few weeks, I thought I would start adding some of my favorite architecture and design related videos from the awesome video sharing site, Revver. These next few are from Designguide.tv. I think you’ll find these videos pretty compelling. Established and Sons presents their 2007 collection. New work by Sebastian Wrong (iconic clock), […]

Heineken World Bottle: Green Means More than the Color of the Bottle

Heineken has created one of the most ingenious products I’ve seen in days. As you can see from the image above, the new Heineken World Bottle or WOBO can be used as a building material after its contents have been consumed. This product presents a real challenge to my moral compass. One perspective is that […]

Balenciaga Fall / Winter 2007

If you did not know, my wife and I just had a child 8 days ago. This child has been out of the house for his pediatrician’s appointment among other journey’s, but his real inaugural first day out I’ve decided to take him to the new Barneys in San Francisco. And what might I find […]
