Sarajevo Artist Creates Math-Inspired Origami Dresses From Paper, Textiles | Ecouterre While most of us have forgotten the basics of high-school geometry, Sarajevo student-designer Amila Hrustic finds inspiration in the ancient branch of mathematics. "Plato's Collection," an assortment of origami-esque dresses made from paper and textiles, is a mass of edges, vertices, and faces, with each dress corresponding to one of the five Platonic solids (the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, icosahedron). What culminates is a series of artfully structured forms that are as pleasing to the eye as they are mathematically sublime. Amila Hrustic, a student at the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of Sarajevo, found herself gravitating towards geometry—specifically Platonic solids—during her four years studying product design. In the same way that Plato theorized that the five Platonic solids were the building blocks of the universe—earth was associated with the cube, air with the octahedron, and so forth—Hrustic used the same shapes as the basis of her dresses.

Inside Mike D's Brooklyn Townhouse Mike Diamond - the founding member of the Beastie Boys - recently let The New York Times have a snoop around his spacious 3,200-square-foot Brooklyn townhouse, which he shares with his wife Tamra Davis and their two sons. The couple have now been living in the house for a year and a half, following from an extensive $500,000 six month long renovation process. Prior to moving, the family lived in a TriBeCa loft, but speaking to the NYT the couple say the change was worth it. www.nytimes.com

The Living Cube by Till Koenneker Germany-born, Switzerland-based designer Till Koenneker took matters into his own hands when he moved into a studio apartment that had no storage. Building a simple cube-like design, called The Living Cube, he found space for his vinyl collection, TV, clothes, and shoes. On top of the cube, Koenneker was able to incorporate a bed for guests and inside houses a much-needed storage space. Koenneker sketched out his ideas and had them built by Remo Zimmerli. Working with the space he had, The Living Cube, essentially a large piece of furniture, was built for his personal needs and solves a lot of issues. I loved that they used virtually ever square inch of the cube and made it functional. Photos by Rob Lewis.
