Another cool house that I'd LOVE to live in: Panama House, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Marcio Kogan’s Panama House is a residence designed for art. Located in São Paulo, Brazil, the house makes a powerful but subdued statement in its low, open, elongated elegance — a hallmark of Kogan’s architecture.

In the past few years, the award-winning, Brazilian-born architect’s Studio MK27 has produced a steady stream of low-rise, boxy work – all with an uncanny intimacy, yet without any of…

Minimalistic Modern Lamps by Coen

Designed by the Berlin-based studio böttcher+henssler, Coen lamps are a white version of the designers’ dark prototype lamp, Troll. Although Troll is made of sheet metal, it brings back images of an upturned wooden ancient sauna accessory – a pail with two handles – called “kiulu” in Finnish. In contrast, the slim, white (and silver) Coen lamps are supremely stylish, quite at home next to an Alvar Aalto Paimio chair.…

Love, Peace, and Grease: Tiger, Jeter and Federer are Extra Greasy in New Gillette Commercial

Tiger Woods, Derek Jeter and Roger Federer strut their greasy stuff to the Bee Gee's "Staying Alive" in Gillette's "Walk of Gillette" commercial. The TV ad launched on the same day the new Yankee Stadium opened.

Watching the ad left me with the same feeling as when I accidentally ate five pieces of Popeye's fried chicken the other day - oily and a little bit disgusted.

I don't care how many combined kajillions they're worth. They need to close… Continue

Trend | Guerrilla Knitting (aka Yarn Bombing) Goes Global

Knit one, purl two, now do it fast before the cops come. That must be what goes through the minds of those partaking in the current fad, Yarn Bombing (aka Knit Bombing or Guerrilla Knitting). Often the evidence will be a simple knit cuff cast around a stair rail such as the one below, innocuous enough. Then there are the more elaborate corsets fitted around tree trunks, and leggings placed on statues, often with a tag or note claiming… Continue

Look ma... no hands!

This week, engineer Adam Wilson made global headlines by updating Twitter using his brainwaves. "USING EEG TO SEND TWEET" he explained.

Wilson's achievement was actually pretty trivial. He used a system called BCI2000, found in hundreds of laboratories across the globe, that can do the job of a keyboard for any software program. But it was significant precisely because it was trivial: mind-reading tech is going to have a massive impact… Continue

British artist, Lora, has a website you could easily spend hours getting lost in. One look at her picture and you'll be surprised to find that the artist behind this work is in fact a young girl who has a lot to say.

200,000 LEGO Brick Japanese Warship

How long do you think it would take to build a 200,000 LEGO brick model of the legendary Japanese Warship, Yamato? It took Jumpei Mitsui six years and four months to create the warship, which is built at a scale of 1/40, weighs over 330 pounds (150kg), measures 21 feet (6.6m) from bow to stern, and is 3 feet (1m) wide at the widest point of the ship. I bet Jumpei's mom…

San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge

Has this man discovered the one, invisible jetpack left by our alien friends or is he just completely loco in the brain-o? Either way, you can't help but love this idea. Max "Bunny" Sparber throws on his invisible jetpack and putters around our favorite city, San Francisco.

James Jarvis' Potato-Headed Man Make Me Want To Run

Here's a sweet, short film that combines artist James Jarvis' passion for running with his signature potato-headed stick-man figures. Jarvis approached Nike with this idea instead of the other way around, making it more about the art than the Nike brand.

As Jarvis states, "I was talking to a friend at Nike, Kerry Shaw, about this idea and, given the… Continue
