These Four Sisters Posed For A Picture Every Year For 40 Years. See The Powerful Transformation For Yourself

In this set of 40 consecutive photos, four sisters are shown posing together and looking straight into the camera lens.

Fragments of Nature

The wood processing industry works according to a fixed pattern: a tree is stripped of its branches and divided into geometric forms. Lex Pott combined these industrial, geometric forms with the original, organic structure of a tree in a series of items of furniture. Where the legs of his table meet its top, the form of a tree trunk can easily be seen. The contours are also directly derived from the tree trunk. The pieces of furniture are reproducible, yet remain a unique fragment of the natural world.

ANIMAL: The Other Side of Evolution (fiberglass, polyester resin) Winner of MA Design Award, University of Arts London, 2012 and the Accessories Collection of the Year at ITS (International Talent Support) 2012 in Trieste, Italy The project is grounded in a unique visual interpretation of animal anatomy, building upon existing skeleton structures to create a series of sculptural pieces that appear as natural properties of the human body, suggesting strength, power and sensuality.

Davide G Aquini's furniture collection is clad in boat decking

Items in the Pagliòlo Collection by Davide G Aquini are wrapped in vertical okumè panels, more commonly used in boat building. Pagliòlo is the Italian word for the flooring used in the bottom of the Venetian vehicles. "Whenever possible I like to let myself be inspired by what I feel is part of me, my training, my life," said Aquini, who came up with the idea for the collection while watching boat taxis in the canals of Venice, the city where he is based. Both the table and storage unit are raised off the ground on four steel tubing legs, supporting oval-shaped horizontal sections milled from MDF and lacquered in white or grey. The structure is wrapped in the okumè cladding, which also provides structural support for the top, leaving a fixed opening to allow access to the inside. Ana Rajcevic : 3D Printshow.

Engineer 3-D Prints An Adorable Dog Wheelchair For A Two-Legged Puppy. An adorable two-legged Chihuahua puppy in Indianapolis recently got a new set of wheels from a stranger with a 3-D printer. TurboRoo, who was born without his front legs, was too young and small to be fitted for a normal dog cart, so a mechanical engineer designed him a custom-printed set of wheels. A fundraising campaign for a new cart for the Chihuahua caught the attention of Mark Deadrick, the president of a 3dyn, a San Diego-based design and fabrication shop that creates prototypes and parts for clients like //Space X.

Unable to get a 3-D scan of the puppy, he whipped up a design based on photos, and churned out a prototype in a couple hours. The orange-and-green cart consists of a plastic sling for the dog to rest in, and rollerblade wheels to allow him to roll around. Deadrick has sent three different versions of the dog cart to Indianapolis (the first two weren't exactly the right size, so while TurboRoo could push himself around, he needed helping hand to do so).
