Ostrich Pillow by Kawamura-Ganjavian

The Ostrich Pillow's padded sides allow the wearer to take a warm and comfortable nap. The eyes and ears are covered while pockets provide a cosy space for hands when leaning on a desk. "Seeing as we all spend more and more time at work, in front of a computer screen or in transit, we thought why not create something that helps us nap, disconnect and dream? " explains designer Ali Ganjavian in the movie. The studio has attracted hundreds of backers so far on the crowd-funding website Kickstarter. Other projects by Kawamura-Ganjavian we've featured on Dezeen include screens made of velcro-covered sticks and a padded reading room in a bookshop. Here's more information from Studio Banana: Ostrich Pillow offers a micro-environment in which to take a warm and comfortable power nap at ease.

Disney Princesses In Accurate Period Costume. These are very beautiful drawings!

Disney Princesses In Accurate Period Costume

Although I am sad to see Belle looking so unlike herself. On a different note: I’d love to know what the reference was for the period costuming for each Princess. Given what I know about the stories, a lot of these seem a little inaccurate time period wise (I have no idea about the costumes other than that they look gorgeous): - As far as I know, the German “Snow White” was published in 1812 with the rest of the Grimm’s collected works; even her supposed ‘real’ influence lived in the 18th century. Earlier versions do exist, but with very significant differences, since this the Disney (and thus, Grimm) version we’re talking about, it seems odd to use the style of a much earlier period. - In reference to another comment: women of the Powhatan nation usually wore kneelength skirts, but oftentimes did not wear shirts at all (although higher status women did use deerskin to cover up, so Pocahontas may have done so too) .

Cradle is a sculpture installed on the exterior wall of a parking lot in Santa Monica, California by Ball-Nogues Studio, originally designed by Frank Gehry.

Cradle by Ball-Nogues Studio

An aggregation of mirror polished stainless steel spheres, the sculpture functions structurally like an enormous Newton’s Cradle – the ubiquitous toy found on the desktops of corporate executives in Hollywood films. Each ball is suspended by a cable from a point on the wall and locked in position by a combination of gravity and neighboring balls. The whole array reflects distorted images of passersby. I’d pay a nickel to watch this piece from afar during an earthquake. (via journal du design, contemporist) Materialicious. Fancy. BLDGWLF. An art and design blog.
