Humans are social creatures that require a great deal of private space, and when it’s privacy you crave home is where the heart is. No matter what your home looks like it is your sanctuary. Simply stepping through the front door and clicking the door locked behind you brings a feeling of peace and tranquility.  People dump a considerable amount of money into their home, either on monthly mortgage payments or rent. Since you spend so much time in your house and put so much money into it, you might as well make it perfect with surreal interior designs that speak to you.  The amazing interior design ideas on this list offer something for everyone, from grand sweeping installations that cost an arm and a leg, to stunning yet simple designs you can duplicate while still staying on a budget.

Love Is Making It’s Way Back Home.


This great video for Josh Ritter’s Love Is Making Its Way Back Home was directed by Erez Horovitz and involves the meticulous animation of over 12,000 laser-cut pieces of construction paper. Via Etsy:

A team of nearly twenty artists, editors, directors and product assistants ushered the video into being. The group started with storyboarding and computer animation before converting the digital graphics to paper cutouts (frame by frame), photographing those 12,000 cutouts and then stitching them together into four minutes of paper animation.

A Somosaguas House By A-cero.


From the first moment the house clearly shows its intentions, and risky stylized forms, thanks to a subtle handling of curves that match harmoniously with their natural context without sacrificing a distinctly modern look. Horizontal lines dominate volumes, which are superimposed in layers, from a partially visible basement, forming layers that appear to emerge naturally from the ground.

The lines outside and inside of the house are trying to produce sculptural volumes, in fact A-Cero architecture is largely inspired by the great sculptures of contemporary artists like Richard Serra and David Nash and land art. Art and Architecture have gone hand in hand in this and all their projects.

On the ground floor, the main lobby is highlighted, situated beneath a curved canopy that adds a great deal of space, from where the rest of the house spreads out; the living room, dining room, master bedroom suite including a closet and bathroom, gymnasium, indoor pool, kitchen and office.

On the second floor lies a painting studio in a long and curved deck, enjoying excellent natural light and views over the surroundings. The basement floor is dedicated to leisure and health, and welcomes the following areas: Txoko, game room, locker rooms for the outdoor pool, massage room, theater, wine cellar, gym, storage area and the service and facilities for the entire dwelling.

In the treatment of the garden, A-Cero wanted to achieve a connectivity between the inside and outside of the home in spite of the slope that exists between the street access and lake. They solved the problem using descending lateral landings of slate gravel leading from the enormous terrace of teh first floor to the garden.

The ground floor or basement of the house has direct access from each room of that floor.  Both the ground floor terrace and the pool deck are of the same material as the floor inside the house, (techlam) in white, very good material for both interior and exterior use. This will ensure continuity between indoors and outdoors.

The landscaping, designed by A-Cero, is clearly Japanese-inspired, as shown by the abundance of large bonsais and different species of flowering trees and bojs.  Also, large ornamental rocks bought from Galicia were carefully placed. The large curved swimming pool (400 sq m/ 4,300 sq ft), is covered with a dark gray liner (PVC laminate slip). The pool features the “disappearing edge” and this effect achieves a continuity between the pool and lake.  In the middle of the pool is placed a sculpture of orthogonal forms that seems to float on the water’s surface. This is a sculpture by Austrian sculptor Ernesto Knorr and is made of cut steel.”

Hermes X Vans Collection.


So what happens when a man with an extensive Hermes scarf collection asks the kind people at Vans to turn them into custom shoes?  Some very beautiful & very unique footwear is created.  If these were lace ups I might just sell my key to Sara Underwood‘s condo for them.  Uber dope.

It also reduces energy and effort to separate toxic color paint from aluminum in recycling  process. Huge amount of  energy and paint required to manufacture colored cans will be saved.Instead of toxic paint, manufacturers process aluminum with  a pressing machine that indicates brand identity on surface.

New Prada Phone By LG 3.0 For 2012.


LG and fashion label Prada are collaborating for the third time to release the first LG Prada smartphone, the Prada phone by LG 3.0.  The first LG Prada, also known as LG KE850, was the world’s first mobile phone to use a touchscreen display.  The teams behind the design and construction have offered a sneak peek into the handset that will be on offer next fall via an image released by the company.  Neither of the two concerned companies has revealed any information on the upcoming LG Prada phone.  Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said, “Our working relationship with PRADA is unique in its longevity and success, something no other phone company and luxury brand have been able to replicate.”  Designer labels attached to phones is not a novelty these days considering the Hugo Boss Samsung Galaxy Ace or the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 devices.

Tea Shirt.

Pinky Swear.

There’s a saying I’ve been coming across quite a lot recently that states “Do Something Cool Every Day”.  Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean go indoor skydiving, or hook up with a model every day, but it means produce something cool, unique, or thought provoking every single day.  Artist David Schwen has done just that, (and since he puts something out EVERY day, his collection is quite extensive) so I’ve spit it into two parts.  Check the first set below, and stay tuned for the second set tomorrow.

Absolut: Blank.


After I put up the Absolut SF post, tons of people have been asking me about other Absolut collabs, and I haven’t been able to answer any questions…. Until now.  The Absolut Art Collection Tour is about to make its final stop in Shanghai after touring across Asia Pacific over the past few months.  The Absolut Art Collection, a celebration of art, creativity and popular culture, includes works by Andy Warhol, Francesco Clemente, Rosemarie Trockel, Béatrice Cussol and Angus Fairhurst, to name a few.  This will be the last chance to see the collection before it returns to Sweden. The exhibition will run from July 14th to 30th in Longmen Art Projects Shanghai.  To end the tour, the Shanghai exhibition will unveil the ABSOLUT BLANK campaign, a global creative movement that encourages artists and fans to create unique artwork from the “blank”.

Here, Absolut boldly turned its iconic bottle into a blank canvas to inspire artists throughout the world to collaborate and fill it with creativity.  Absolut brought together artists from a variety of disciplines and watched the journey from pure white canvas to exceptional pieces of art.  The Shanghai exhibition will feature the ABSOLUT BLANK collaboration between rising Chinese artist, Lu Xinjian and the multi-talented Musician/Producer, B6.  The two teamed up to create the “ABSOLUTELY A-MAZED” installation from just a blank map of Shanghai’s city streets.

The combination of both artists unique styles and inspiration from the ABSOLUT BLANK concept led to the creation of an artwork filled with colour, structure and sound that captures the inimitable energy of Shanghai.  A series of activities will be held throughout the exhibition period under the theme “It all starts with an ABSOLUT BLANK” including workshops led by artist Mr. Lu and Musician/Producer B6, where art students and ABSOLUT fans will have the opportunity to create art and music scratch.

The Nooka Wall Clock.


Ever since the release of our first Nooka watch designs, people have been asking for a wall clock version. Developing the molds and components for a large piece in limited quantities is an economic barrier you can help us overcome. How cool will it be to have an object championing universal communication to share with everyone in your world! We are a self-funded startup, and every one of your contributions will help us to turn these wall clocks into a reality. The Nooka wall clocks will retail at around $600 with a ZenV display and $650 with a Zirc display.

Old School Gems.


NO THIS IS NOT A PICTURE OF ME.

It seems like ever since I put up the post about odd photos from the past (Parts 1 and 2), I’ve been getting recommendations about places to procure vintage photos of all different types.  I’m NOT trying to say that any suggestions from the fans were disregarded.  But one collection in particular, consisting of 16 retro photos caught my eye in a unique way.  Each of them has such an individual and intriguing element about them that I just can’t put my finger on.  Check the method.

Eden is Beautiful.


The HTC New Eden 1 Concept is 1 of 2 designs to come out of the New Eden project, hosted by BriefMobile, that sets out to create the most appealing, feasible, hardware design for mobile devices. It aims to captivate with innovative and attractive hardware, as HTC did with the original Touch Diamond and other products that followed. The New Eden 1 is a device with a durable aluminum shell that combines traditional HTC design language with a fresher, more futuristic look.

I think it’s a good direction but something about the design, and to a larger extent all HTC phones, doesn’t feel effortless. Yes it’s clean and minimal but I think it’s time for designers to look elsewhere for inspiration. Apple has the whole slim aluminum and glass aesthetic down. It’s become a part of their DNA. Any manufacturer playing with those materials fall victim to the “it’s not an iPhone” category. There are other materials out there to play with – wonderful and tactile options that can enhance the mobile experience in a way Apple hasn’t thought of yet. Thinking caps ON.  But all that taken into consideration, I do very much like this phone, and I hope to see it, or something like it out on the market soon.
