"Zontik believes that recreation is exactly that: the re-creation of something that is more than the sum of its parts."
I remember my sister telling me that if you've work hard and always striven for excellence, you should indulge yourself sometimes with things that are made with the same ingredients. So I guess she's gonna purchase one of those Zontik's Rubik cubes one day.… Continue

Born on July 4, 1983, Fontana caused controversy in 1999 when she appeared in the Victoria's Secret lingerie catalogue at the age of 16. Soon after the Victoria's Secret shoot, she was signed by Versace, Ralph Lauren and Valentino.
Visiondivision has designed the interior of three "Mangrolia Chaussures" shoe stores situated on Reunion Island. The design is based around a plexiglas shoebox.

As a Christmas gift to its top advertising clients, Facebook typically gives money to donate to a charity of their choice, along with a special item like last year's reusable shopping bag. This year they decided to do an art poster and the in-house Communication Design Team got to work.
The result is a 19 × 19-inch-square poster that is printed, embossed and foiled with a delicate, intricate… Continue
Not only do I absolutely love the fact that this couple chose Viceroy in Santa Monica as their engagement photo shoot location, this post is extra special to me because it features one of my very best friends from high school. Grace and I have been friends for over 22 years! Through bad… Continue

The designers over at Adidas are obviously fans of the original trilogy. The details are what makes these shoes great. From the orange on the Skywalker's that matches his jumpsuit in the movie to the Tie Fighter wing pattern these were made for fanboys. Adidas has taken the whole footwear collaboration to a whole new level and in the process assured I will be broke next year!…
Designed by architecture firm Grant Associates, Bay South is set to become Singapore’s largest garden project when it opens in 2011.
The project’s most striking feature is its super-tall tree structures, which function as towering vertical gardens that collect rainwater and solar energy to sustain the garden. The supertrees will range from 100-180 feet (30-55… Continue

When looking at his paintings, you've got to wonder what the hell is going on inside the head of Portland-based artist Andy Kehoe. To escape personal anxiety, Kehoe creates monochromatic pastoral environments with undertones of unease and conflict. Animals and human figures symbolize power, truth, anxiety, and fear.
Although this proposal by Asymptote did not win the "Dream Hub" master plan competition for the Yongsan International Business District of Seoul, South Korea, I'm totally blown away by their ambitious imagination.
The FCD Yongsan Landmark Tower was conceived and designed to be among the most important and elegant tall buildings of the century. The design of…

The book is a joint effort. More than 300 writers of 35 different nationalities have covered everything. Art, history, anthropology, philosophy etc. are all covered. Of… Continue
What a fantastic new piece from artist Glen Brogan! Just what should Mario put on today? Guess it depends on his every-changing mood...
Per Glen, "I wanted to include as many of his power-ups as possible, but the main rule I had to follow was that I couldn't include things that actually transform Mario himself rather that just changing his wardrobe, like the Boo mushroom from Mario Galaxy that turns him into a ghost."
