Splinter Works may have created the ultimate way to relax with Vessel, a new and elegant take on the modern bathtub. The design resembles the imagery of a hammock, and is constructed out of carbon fiber for its strength and ability to form complex curves. Floating off of the ground, Vessel is attached to the walls by two stainless steel brackets that can be covered or left bare and is filled by a sleek floor standing tap. As for drainage, there is a a built in water release at the base of the design, though a down pipe drain can also be installed if needed. Measuring nearly 9-feet in length, this sculptural tub also comes in a variety of colors such as red, blue, yellow, pink, bronze and pure silver, as well as different custom sizes to best suit the buyers personal preferences.

The Greenest Yacht On The Water.

The annual gathering of yacht connoisseurs came to a close in Monaco over the weekend, with the prestigious Rina Green Plus prize going to a new mega-yacht from Italian manufacturer Benetti.  The 55-meter boat, presented in a world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show, was recognized as the year’s leading example of yacht constructors’ efforts to reduce the carbon footprints of their vessels. The prize is awarded based on the criteria set out by Rina, a marine services company, in its Green Plus certification label, which encourages all manufacturers to produce more eco-friendly boats.  Among the innovative and green technologies aboard the Ocean Paradise is a system that reabsorbs greenhouse gas emissions in order to limit their dispersion in the marine environment. Benetti used a brand new coating on the hull of the yacht, reducing resistance in the water and thus enhancing fuel efficiency. The boat is lit with next-generation LED lights, also an optimal choice for energy efficiency.

Naomi Kizhner’s Parasitic Powered Jewelry

In the dystopian future of The Matrix, humanity has been converted into a renewable crop by energy-starved sentient machines, with “farms” of human bodies harnessed and harvested for their metabolic output. It’s one of those disturbing sci-fi premises which can leave one suspicious of artificial intelligence, robotic vacuums, and the whole “internet of things” trend. But maybe Agent Smith and his robotic compatriots were onto something in regards to the human body as a renewable energy source. The ‘e-pulse conductor’ is a pendant without a chain, harvesting bioelectricity from the human body’s neurological system, “plugged” into the spine via pincer interface. Industrial design graduate student, Naomi Kizhner of Jerusalem’s Hadassah College envisions jewelry one day serving purposes beyond adornment, a three-piece collection connecting and converting the human body into one gigantic battery for biological data feedback. Energy Addicts’ entomological-styled accessories hints of early David Cronenberg at hisbest/worst, the jewelry’s macabre beauty furthered by how each piece is worn: sharp pincers and stings pierce skin, establishing an “interface” between body and each bio-electrically powered accessory. Blood Bridge: designed to tap directly into the action of ulnar artery – the body’s main blood vessel – the pulmonary flow of the heart spins an enclosed wheel to generate electricity.

Carbon Fiber Hammock Bathtub

A new futuristic bathtub, whose lines evoke a hammock, has recently been unveiled by British design company Splinter Works in a very limited-edition run. The luxury bath tub, called Vessel, is designed for use in a wetroom and does not touch the floor but rather is suspended from the walls with stainless steel brackets.

Liquid Glass by Jean Bérard Fotografía


These stunning images were created by Mexican photography studio Jean Bérard Fotografía (JFB). They have developed a series of images which capture the chaos and unpredictability of liquids. Instead of water being contained within a vessel “liquid glass” depicts it splashing about the exterior of six different containers in a strategic and methodical way, resolved using only photography techniques.

Tomorrow, Tuesday November 23rd, the “Liquid Revolver” party featuring The EC Twins will be going down at Vessel.  Liquid Revolver is a must-attend industry event geared towards those that work within the nightlife, nightclub, bar, and entertainment industries, as well as prospective employees, clients, sponsors, promoters, and those that wish to break into the scene.

Sak’s 5th Ave. Afterparty @ Vessel.


Vessel In San Francisco

Last week I got the distinct pleasure of accompanying a good friend to the Sak’s 5th Ave gala, and the ensuing after party.  The after party was held at San Francisco’s Vessel Night Club, and was thrown by David Ali and the good folks at ‘Above Ground Ent.’  Too Short and Keith Sweat were also in the building for the party (Sorry again Ash).  I had an amazing time, and if you reside in the San Francisco area, the next time David Ali and ‘Above Ground’ are throwing an event at Vessel, I highly suggest you make plans to attend.
