Kinetic sculpture at the BMW Museum (audio swap) Santambrogiomilano. Glass Furniture by Santambrogio Milano : Could this be a new trend ? Designed by Italian manufacturer Santambrogio Milano these pieces of furniture made from glass are something quite interesting, that you don’t see everyday.
The collection uses the ultra-clear Diamant Glass that is produced by Saint Gobain. At a first glance I’ve thought that this design is totally impractical, but after I’ve saw that the design is made using superdurable tempered glass I’ve changed my mind. Who knows maybe this glass furniture design will replace the old wood furniture designs that are right now in every home, because the materials look very good. – Via. Irina Vinnik Portfolio. Natural Pools or Swimming Ponds. Natural Pools or Natural Swimming Ponds (NSPs) Let nature clean the water...
Chemical-free water garden and swimming pool. The plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water’s surface. www.naturalswimmingpools.com The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regeneration zone and back into the swimming area. The aquatic plants filter out contaminants and use nutrients from the water as food which helps prevent algae. Then rocks, such as granite river rock or haydite, to which friendly bacteria attach, act as biological filters.
There are many options as to design. A gradual slope contains the plants, gravel and loamy sand, a wall keeps them separate from the swimming area. Vacuum but twice a year and tend to the plants as needed. The regeneration zone can be along the perimeter of a natural pool or a pond unto itself but connected to the swimming area. www.gartenart.co.uk Northeast U.S. Www.PennysDaybook.com. There’s always this one question that crosses everyone’s mind at least once in their lives: Tattoos – Should I get one?
Yes/No? Tattoos are quiet, inspiring artwork that carry stories and hide secrets on a human canvas. It’s been said that wrist tattoos were used to ward off all sorts of illnesses and diseases. But today, many see wrist tattoos as simple inspirations as they brave through stormy weather – a glance at their wrists and hope fuels them. These 25 wrist tattoos exemplify that.
Each one is born with a thought and a tale, memorable and vivid enough to be inked in eternity. Upside down or not, be cool. All images from We Heart It. Artwork : Leslie Ann O'Dell.

Kevin Pollard » Blog Archive » Zumthor’s Serpentine Pavilion. I’ve just been to see Peter Zumthor’s Serpentine Pavilion in Hyde Park, London, and a number of things stood out. - Acoustically, sounds are muted as the hession that makes up the only material save for the benches absorbs sound, meaning you are more atuned to the sounds inside the pavilion than the dozens of footsteps that would be easily distracting. - The overhanging eaves protect from the weather while allowing you to be outside.
The indentation on the underside of the edge of the roof means that rain water flows in sheets precisely into the gravel at the edge of the planted area, so you don’t get wet, it doesn’t splash and the plants benefit. It also negates the need for a traditional gutter. - The shifted bench away from the wall is more comfortable and lends an area to deposit things that are not in the way. - You can’t see in from the outside or out from the inside of the pavilion, except for the sky, which helps focus the mind.
Here’s a little documentary about it: Crater Lake - Wood Installation by 24° Studio. Inspiring Installation A winner at the 2011 Shitsurai Art International Competition, Crater Lake is an environmental installation that serves as a meeting place to visit with friends, contemplate the surroundings, or simply sit for a moment.
The design was inspired by the social revitalization of the city of Kobe, Japan after the Great Hanshin-Awaji earthquake of 1995. Multiple ideas and materials were tested to realize the complexity of the smooth and undulating form. Wood was chosen for its strong structural capacity, easiness to work with, and natural qualities. One of the main issues was the expression of the continuous and smooth surface without using costly techniques of wood steaming, bending or digital fabrication.
Standard wood and off-the-shelf hardware were used in construction to avoid any costly customized fabrication process. 2×4 studs were used for all structural members and 30×60 mm treated cedar wood was used for the surface. Designer: 24° Studio. Your Rainbow Panorama. “Your rainbow panorama” is a great permanent work of art by Olafur Eliasson made for the rooftop of ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum (Denmark), and provides the visitors a unique panoramic visual experience.
It’s 150 meters of circular walkway, three meters wide made in glass, a diameter of 52 meters, mounted on 3.5 meters columns. The project, as Olafur Eliasson says, inspires a rich dialogue between visual arts and architecture, but also between our inner present-and-immediate perceptions and our previous unconscious calculations of values.
“Your rainbow panorama enters into a dialogue with the existing architecture and reinforces what is assured beforehand, that is to say the view of the city. I have created a space which virtually erases the boundaries between inside and outside – where people become a little uncertain as to whether they have stepped into a work or into part of the museum. Brilliant Stairs photos. Imaginative Package Designs - Design. Imaginative Package Designs Packaging is a very important marketing strategy to glamorize a product in order to attract the consumer's attention.
Often however, packaging can be neglected by business. Here I have compiled a selection of beautiful packaging designs, some conceptual and some that made it to the shelves but all great examples of the designer going the extra mile to ensure that all important first impression is a positive one.
