First, the not as fun stuff. We closed in mid-August and then had contractors & painters in the new space for our first 2 weeks as homeowners. The day after our move-in, a locksmith came and swapped out the handles & dead bolts on both of our interior doors. So moral of the story. Now onto the fun stuff…. …a personalized craft that anyone can make! Our first apartment in Wausau, WisconsinOur city loft in St. I’ve held onto all of them over the years and it was finally time to do something with these sentimental items. I grabbed this frame from Michaels. Then I took some cardstock and hot glued the keys right to it. Once dry, I popped the piece of paper into the frame to take a looksie. My final step was to write the street name & dates underneath each key. Well worth the wait for her neat handwriting.

NV01 modular bookcase fits together like a giant jigsaw - Images The NV01 modular bookcase by Noir Vif can be configured to suit individual needs Image Gallery (10 images) NV01 is a prototype shelving system that can be extended and adapted to fit the available space in any room – in terms of both width and height – by assembling the identical modules in different configurations. View all The NV01 system is the work of Paris-based Noir Vif, a design studio founded by André Fontes and Guillaume Lehoux. Lehoux explained in an interview with Gizmag that the concept emerged from the wish to make furniture that can fit almost any kind of housing, is simple and cheap to manufacture, and provides playful and creative options for the user. NV01 is at present just a prototype hand-crafted from wood, but Noir Vif is keen to bring the system to market and is actively seeking a manufacturer to produce the modules. The final cost of NV01 will depend on the materials and manufacturing processes employed. Source: Noir Vif via Designboom About the Author

Through computational design it is possible to create unique, beautiful, functional and personal objects and experience a rewarding creative process through programing. Unfortunately, use of programming as a medium for art and design, especially by young people and non-professionals is limited. Many people consider computer programing to be a highly specialized, difficult and inaccessible activity that only has relevance as a career path rather than as a mode of personal expression. By finding ways to connect programing to the production of personally relevant beautiful physical objects, it is possible to expand the number and types of people who are both interested in and empowered to participate in creative programming. DressCode is a programming language and enviroment for designing and building decorative and functional artifacts. Note: DressCode is still in development.

J modular shelf is modeled art for any storage Creating a simple and stylish solution for modular shelving, designer Dan Matarazzo has popped up with an innovative wall art/storage unit that bends to the needs and likings of the users. Simple to install, the shelf is 22″x4″, with a depth of 9″ and a shelf thickness of 1.5″. Although the shelves look like solid wood, they are actually hollow core, constructed with thin plywood to reduce weight and then veneered over to appear solid.
