This is the photo that got me busy writing this ideabook. I had never before seen a glass-sided bathtub, and this one completely appeals to my minimalist tendencies. The architect, David Stern, says the client wanted this custom made tub for the kids bathroom and wanted it to feel fresh and fun. Well, he succeeded.
Flipping through the latest issue of Boston Home , I was struck by the beauty of this "invisible" tub. Made from a thick sheet of glass inserted between the two tile walls, it's so simple, yet I've never seen anything quite like it. Boston-based architecture & design firm Stern McCafferty created this custom bath based on an inspiration photo from owners Amy and Ethan d'Abelmont Burnes. They gut renovated their South End rowhouse when they bought the property next door and decided to combine them. The couple wanted an open and modern sanctuary, and this tub definitely fits in with that aesthetic. I highly recommend picking up the Summer 2011 issue of Boston Home to see the rest of the d'Ablemont Burnes' fantastic abode.

This comfy armchair design comes from Japanese architect Daisuke Motogi and is called “Lost in Sofa”. As its unusual name suggests, the chair has the ability to “lose” objects. Meaning that it allows its users to insert various items into it, such as notebooks, phones or the remote control, up to the point when one can not see them anymore. This is possible due to the numerous small fluffy squares that make up the chair’s exterior.

We often show ingenious ways of hiding the bed . French architects Emmanuel Combarel Dominique Marrec offer a new one: turn it into a sculptural element, in this case a box hanging from the ceiling. Watch Video: World's Greenest Homes From the other side, it is a short step up from the existing mezzanine.
When designing a LifeEdited, there is a lot to learn from boats, trailers and RV about how to live in small spaces. There is great appeal to the idea living in efficient small spaces and to not being tied down to real estate; that is why we like the minihome or the portabach or container housing. But just as there is as Mercedes can make a Smart Car and a Maybach, there can be a range in mobile living from the light and green to the extreme. This may well be the Hummer of mobile living, the Unicat. This baby is built on a Mercedes Unimog chassis, monster trucks designed for offroad use and for military vehicles. (it was the chassis for the living.be )
