The green lounge was a prop for the carpet...but I liked the lounge better...Can't tell if it would be comfortable, but for some reason I find it very aesthetically pleasing. I think that because it is green and sensuous I automatically dream myself into lying in a field, complete with sweet smelling grasses, and that is a wonderful accomplishment for a piece of furniture...
Who made this lovely guy?
I found it here...
There's a little something here for everyone from this Danish soft furnishings heavyweight, but there are a couple things that are experiences in and of themselves...because of the design the object becomes a destination...
Seen here :: Shadow & Pi
The Fuse Project, Yves Behar, and all of these gorgeous highly conceptual products are not new...but they deserve attention for consistently delivering design integrity, for the value that they add to design and the design community. Seen here: Leaf personal light for Herman Miller and the Transformer laptop for Toshiba.
-Adidas jump quickly into the limited edition colorfull shoes ans one of the last contribution to this new fashion fandango is the adicolor kermit the frog ..

-Look at those illustrations , so deep and so precise its kind of amazing that illustrator can create something so poetic , i mean that somebody can create such a visual pleasure with lines.
-Zio and Nipotino are table and floor lamps in injection-moulded white polycarbonate. These new “support lamps” take a fluorescent bulb housed underneath the top. This creates an indirect light and produces a graphic play of visually restful effects.
The dimensions of the Zio are designed to allow the lamp to be placed with ease on a desk without taking up too much room. Its top can in fact comfortably accommodate a sheet of typing paper and the sort of documents normally associated with a workstation.
The Nipotino also can be used in innumerable different ways: from its ideal placement next to the computer keyboard, to its function as a discreet luminous presence.
-have you ever heard about this new colection of Stuff , yes stuff, chair , stool , birdcage ... from tom dixon for artek simple , white almost directly inspired by an hospital environnement ... but terribly attractive . for me at least .
-from Globe , a skateboard brand , this is a nice visual co-branding , globe and kawasaki .. don't really know if its a nice design , but at least its pretty iconic .. NO?
-basic instinct , hiking soon....? I was pretty impressed by the technical quality the lightweight and the design of this Ice axe, even if i know absolutely nothing about it .. i'm sure somebody else will like it.

-The size of the device changes depending on the amount of data it holds.
When the device is about to blow up you will see the familiar error message on your screen: "There is not enough free space".
When swithched off the flashbag remains pumped up, so you can estimate with the naked eye how much more pics, books and music albums can be transferred into it.

Just next door to the Roq la Rue (er, in the Belltown, in Seattle)...a new gallery opened last Friday... BLVD, specializing in urban contemporary art. Check out the show "Groundswell." Featured here -- Robert Hardgrave, aka Farmer Bob. I really enjoy it because you have to look again...and again...and again. Complex imagery, seductive line quality, fantasy, danger, dreams, a whole mythological world...all here...
