With friction between Russia and the Ukrainian approaching a climax, media attention is focusing more on places like Crimea and Kiev.  Ukraine is in turmoil after its bloodiest week in decades. Days of deadly clashes between anti-government protesters and police have culminated in parliament voting to oust President Viktor Yanukovych.

The protests broke out after President Yanukovych’s government rejected a far-reaching accord with the European Union in November 2013 in favor of stronger ties with Russia. Thousands of people, outraged that a long-standing aspiration for integration with Europe had been ditched overnight, poured into central Kiev for peaceful protests. They have occupied Independence Square, known as Maidan, ever since.

If you’re gonna travel to Russia on some kind of crazy, Winter Olympics-inspired, find-yourself journey, jot down Sleepbox Hotel Tverskaya as a place to stay. Russian studio Arch Group took an old 4-story building in Moscow (not far from the Kremlin), and filled it with these stylish portable sleeping capsules to create a hostel-like hotel with a unique twist. These mobile modules hold one or two people and are equipped simply with beds, LED reading lamps, and electric outlets. Showers and toilets are located on each floor, and the Sleepbox lobby features a reception area, information zone, and individual lockers. If claustrophobia sets in, there’s a few standard size rooms to stay in as well.

White And White Wall Clock.

This wall clock “White & White”  was created by designer Vadim Kibardin from Russia. The White & White Clock is a modern 3D interpretation of the traditional digital clock. Nothing else, simply time. In dark hours the light sensitive sensor changes the brightness of the digits to a less intense white. All of the digits are part of a single unit, and as the title suggests, it switches between two shades of white.
