This tiny but highly sophisticated studio apartment in the East Village of NYC has made us very proud, thanks to JPDA . Not only was it built as a super efficient multi-functional unit but with the use of detailed mill work, the storage capacity was very cleverly executed and resulted in a super stylish studio with a decent amount of floor space. Shouldn’t all NYC dwellers aim to live like this? You decide… A schematic rendering demonstrates a realistic plan for this tiny apartment.

But here is what I want to know: Why should the kids have all the fun?
I love to talk as much as the next blogger and likely even more than some, but on rare occasions I feel that shutting up would be a really good idea. So when I came across these little pieces of kitchen porn, and I’m sorry but there really is no other way to describe them, I stopped talking, writing and to an unhealthy extent even breathing. Stunning, sculptural works of art that happen to also serve for food preparation are created by design duo Miles Hartwell and Matt Withington the raw talent behind Splinter Works , their studio just outside of London. The piece shown above is called “Tipping point” but wait, there’s more. You still breathing?
It takes history to define a movement – so what will they call what we now term ‘contemporary’ in the future? Not to be confused with a ‘modern’ historical style, the idea of ‘international design’ has taken on new meaning in our globalized and digitized world. Today, ultra-modern houses and futuristic homes are shaped by creative individuals – but architects also work within a framework that spans both time and space in ways unlike ever before.
