Here's a fun little doohickey that should make afternoon tea a little more enjoyable. Sharky was created by Pablo Matteoda of Argentina. The infuser floats around your tea cup dispersing tea leaves from beneath its metal fin. Now you can create a scene from the movie Jaws in your very own home.…
Just a quick shout out to Cartoon Network for their awesome rebrand. Motion design studio Capacity created Dunny-esque characters called Noods. These blank amorphous characters absorb an endless array of colors, textures and personalities to represent the diversity of the CN's own line-up and cast of characters. Designed by urban vinyl legend… Continue

Born, raised and based in Rochester, New York, artist Andy Gilmore has a beautiful way of combining form and color to create geometric works of art. He's like M.C. Escher with a modern twist. Often times using a full spectrum of color, he takes us into a trippy wonderland - in fact, we… Continue

Designed by star-architect Zaha Hadid, Dorobanti Tower was designed to establish an iconic presence in the heart of Bucharest. The new tower is a unique mix of a distinctive form, ingenious structure, and spatial qualities of sky-high living. If approved, it will be the tallest building (656 ft) in the city and will provide a 5-star hotel along with apartments. The meandering exterior…
I just wanted to take this moment to say goodbye to my good friend, Domino magazine. How you've inspired me over the years with your colorfully bright furniture choices, your quirky but cute sensibility. What will I do without you?
Oh flight of fancy! John Galliano took the fashion world by storm by showing us his outstanding (though outlandish) point of view through Christian Dior's 2009 Spring Couture Collection at Haute Couture Fashion Week. We expected nothing less from this outrageous designer who blew us away with billowing layers of silk taffeta, high and low hemlines, Chinese porcelain… Continue
How come nobody told me about Cubeecraft? There are a ton of cool templates that you can print out, cut, and fold into these awesome characters. I'm gonna make a few for my desk at work since it desperately needs some character.
You print something like this out:
Cut and fold (No tape needed!) And you get something like this:… Continue
Sitting in my makeshift home office, I long for the day when I can create an office as beautiful as this! By Molly Luetkemeyer's M. Design Interiors, this office is modern and hip without being stuffy and boring. You can tell that Molly's worked with the one and only Kelly Wearstler (of the Viceroy, Avalon Hotel and Maison 140) because she has a similar point of view.… Continue
This is not a trick or Photoshop manipulation. The "light bulb" floats in midair and can remain on for years without any physical contact, charging, or batteries. It consumes less than half the power of an incandescent bulb.
Here is the video.
If you must know - The bulb and the casing contain hidden circuitry that uses electromagnetic feedback to levitate the bulb roughly 2.5″ from the… Continue

Just about the cutest thing I've seen all day are these photos from Lauren Alane. Lauren lives in Winter Park, Florida with her photographer husband Joey. In her own unique way, she needle felts these birds, even sprinkling them with adorable personalities at the end! Each picture has its own sweet… Continue
I must admit to something. I am selfishly writing this post so that when I get the time and energy to redesign my house, I'll have this post for reference. For each of these rooms moves me in a way that I cannot explain. Perhaps it's the beautiful clash of colors or maybe it's because I love getting an idea of… Continue
In a city packed with speeding cars, biking at night probably isn't the safest way to travel. After all, only a small fraction of streets have dedicated bike lanes. That's where LightLane comes along. Lasers on the bike project a crisply defined virtual bike lane on the street, thus providing drivers with a familiar boundary to avoid. Still in concept mode, I'm not… Continue
Finally! A cool black luggage bag that doesn't look like the same old/same old thing everyone's scootin' around. Customize it yourself with a grid of colorful "microdots" or plastic chits that are affixed permanently to the front. I'm loving the old school pink pacman but I'd probably design mine with Mario (from Super Mario Bros) or Luigi (that guy in green got no… Continue
I'm digging the retro throwback of these plates and mugs by Orla Kiely. Orla certainly has that 70s vibe going on and though some of it may be a little too funky, taken in small doses it comes off fresh. Launched in 1997, Orla has carved a niche in the fashion scene with her use of color, geometry and… Continue

Verdier set out to enhance the “light recreational vehicle” and make the Westfalia traveling experience more… Continue
