Temperature-Sensitive Glass Product Details Color-changing dyes and additives have been offered in paper, plastic, and textiles for some time, but this product takes the idea into a new area: glass tiles. Offered in a range of colors and sensitivities, the tiles change color based on ambient temperature, body temperature, or water temperature. The textured glass surface layer protects and highlights the color-change film on the tile. The base color of the tile can match almost any color, and the temperature change point can be fit to the user’s environment and requirements. The tiles come in six standard lines.

Architecture - StumbleUpon Imagine the renovation dilemmas. A huge penthouse of a converted 1930s office building in TriBeCa, New York, is to be turned into a functioning home for a family with three teenagers. In fact, we can not quite imagine the issues that faced Steven Harris Architects when the family showed up, literally, at the doorstep of the celebrated architect and asked if he’d like to work on their home. Harris said yes and proceeded to make his magic. The scale of the apartment is huge and the freedom from budget constraints allowed for some spectacular solutions. Harris’s work is often distinguished by clarity and light, by the use of glass, by the maximization of views and, above all, bold solutions. What emerged as a result of the TriBeCa Penthouse project, is a multi-level (27th and 28th floors) nearly 8,000 square-foot (743 square meter) family-friendly residence that includes self-contained guest quarters and a new glass-and-teak-beam rooftop pavilion that functions as a recreation room.

Portal Turret LED Flashlight w/ Sound Original Furniture Set: 3D Coffee Table and Stools Martin Gallagher designed a coffee table set that we find clever and practical. Here is the press release we received from the project developers: “3D is a neat contemporary coffee table and stools based on solids and voids, cylindrical forms and modern architecture using high quality modern materials and vivid upholstery. Designed for modern living where space is of the up most importance, 3D is a modular piece of furniture. Its height and overall scale can be modified by adding or reducing the amount of plywood layers within the piece. The stools come upholstered in a wide palette of colors, but the option of having Birch plywood coloured seats is also available so that each stool can be used as side a table, therefore maximizing the design to its full potential“.

Checkpoint Charlie Hat This is a copy of a hat my friend Doc Pop brought back from (East) Germany. He got it near Checkpoint Charlie so that's what he calls it; to me it looks more like the hat Governor Tarkin is wearing when he gets insulted by Princess Leia. But either way it's cool. I made this from a thrift store blazer, rather than buying fabric new. For the brim, I use a piece of flexible clear plastic of the kind blister packages are made from. The only other material needed is a yard or so of quilt binding or wide bias tape for the inner hat band. Update: pix of one made from paper!

Tangga House by Guz Architects | HomeDSGN, a daily source for inspiration... - StumbleUpon By Eric • Mar 23, 2011 • Selected Work The Tangga House is another Singapore’s dream home designed by Guz Architects. Completed in 2009, the 7,663 square foot residence is located in Holland Village, an elite district of Singapore that is famous amongst the expatriate community. The luxury single-family home gives the owners the opportunity to live in harmony and comfort with nature, in Singapore’s hot tropical climate. Tangga House by Guz Architects: “The house is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional courtyard house, laid out around a central green courtyard with a double height stair and entry area forming the focal point of the project. The L-shaped plan creates open spaces which encourage natural ventilation and offer resident’s views over the courtyard to the veranda, roof gardens and beyond. The large roof above the courtyard creates an indoor and outdoor space leading to the gardens and swimming pool which wraps around two sides of the house. Photos by: Patrick Bingham-Hall
