NESTREST

NESTREST
Doesn't that picture look so peaceful and inviting? I think I'm in love. That dangling, serene little pod is a NESTREST, designed by Paris' Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety. It's described as an over-sized bird's nest that's perfect for relaxation, meditation and open-air conversations. And if you love the design, but dangling in the air isn't your thing, NESTREST is also available as a standing lounger. It's made of 4 cm wide strips of a unique material called DEDON Fiber, the world's first synthetic resin fiber material.

An Abandoned Country Estate in Yonkers – Rent Alder Manor For Film Shoots & Events Note: I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ALDER MANOR AND WEDDINGS!! I’ve tried to figure it out, but the person in charge of weddings has never called me back, and it remains a complete mystery. I receive emails daily complaining about a lack of response for weddings, and I just don’t understand the situation. Very sorry! It sits on a hill just outside of New York City, completely empty and, for years, decaying and nearly forgotten… This is Alder Manor, and it’s without question one of the most amazing places I’ve ever had the pleasure of scouting.

Light Light's Sublime Levitating Lamps Posted by Ray | 30 Sep 2011 | Comments (9) Designer Angela Jansen of Design Academy Eindhoven recently collaborated with engineer Ger Jansen on a pair of skeuomorphic LED lamps that they're currently selling as Light Light. Their website knowingly notes that "It is uncommon for engineers to find good domestic applications for their technology... and it is likewise rare for designers of consumer objects to embrace cutting-edge technology wholeheartedly." Which, of course, is "perhaps what makes the cross-pollination of ideas between Angela Jansen and Ger Jansen so remarkable." The Light Light series creates an incredible visual conversation piece.

New York City's Dragonfly A Locavore Wet Dream Photo courtesy of: Vincent Callebaut Architectures Architect Vincent Callebaut will have locavores drooling if his 128-floor vertical farm concept is actually realized. The Dubai-esque Dragonfly addresses issues like food production and agriculture in cities that are horizontally-challenged for space like New York City. The concept supports housing, offices, laboratories and twenty-eight different agricultural fields. Set at the Southern bank of New York's Roosevelt Island, the Belgium-designed Dragonfly consists of two towers and is completely Hobbit free. It's a 2,000 foot tall structure that harnesses both solar and wind power.

Really No Kidding, but if I were to listen to He Ruimin then my kitchen would be just a cabinet with everything imaginable within it. Refrigerator, electric cook top, garbage bin, storage, and indicator lights on the fridge and stove to warn me about hot and cold surfaces! Good for the LOHAS gang, this concept makes me smile and frown. Smile because I think its and neat idea for restricted homes, and frown because I love elaborate big kitchens!

Firefly Solar Lamp Table by Vuk Dragovic & Yanko Design Replacing Candle-lit Dinners With Firefly The Firefly Table is honestly a very neat concept that I can foresee being snapped into production. Intended for outdoor cafés and restaurants, the idea is to use a solar lamp instead of romantic candlelights for illumination. The centrally placed lamp pops up to emit a soft glow while projecting any form of branding (via stencils) to the floor-space below.
