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

25 Wrist Tattoos | Penny's Daybook | 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.

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.

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.
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.

ArchDaily | Broadcasting Architecture Worldwide This article by Marc Kristal from Metropolis Magazine, originally titled “Digital Details,” looks at the work of NRI, a New York company that is leading the way when it comes to 3D Printing (or rather, additive manufacturing) – finding that there is a craft in these machine-produced models after all. First things ﬁrst: The term “3-D printing” is a misnomer according to Arthur Young-Spivey, the digital fabrication specialist at NRI—a 116-year-old, New York–headquartered supplier of reprographic services to architects and their tradespeople. “The correct term is ‘additive manufacturing,’” he explains. “People call it 3-D printing because it enables you to wrap your head around it, but in some ways it’s confusing.”
