Design that I find interesting and inspiring, and generally makes me want to be able to do this stuff too.

A Car Called Hurricane

Could this be one of the best cars never made? I have written on the subject of unusual and very unusual here before. But this one really captures the imagination. This concept car designed and built (in all too low quantities) by Australia’s Holden Motor Company is incredibly beautiful. The lines, the way you get in, the […]

Kissing

The United Colours of Benetton advertising has always courted controversy. Remember this one from 1991? Well they have done it again, with images probably inspired by this iconic 1979 image of Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honeker then the leader of the German Democratic Republik. For an excellent explanation of the history of the kiss that […]

Cities in the Clouds

Love these photos of cities in the clouds. First up Dubai (you can almost imagine Sheikh Zayed Road running between the buildings, although i have to say that this image always looked a little photo shopped to me?) Next up San Francisco of course, a city that looks great in the clouds. Luckily. Woolworth’s tower in the […]

Don’t Settle

Today we woke up to the news that Steve Jobs has died. Since hearing the news, I have been fascinated reading the tributes that have come to this one man from so many different people and places. From politicians to entrepreneurs, it seems this man changed people’s lives in so many more ways than just the […]

Cheeky Signs

Well, not so much the signs that are cheeky, but the responses. Some absolute gold here. Loads more here, and some absolute classics. Well worth a look.

Awesome Tribeca Loft/House

Not even really sure how to describe this. I guess it sort of looks like someone built a house on top of a tribeca apartment building. What I CAN be sure of is that its pretty awesome. I’d probably change the artwork in the bathroom, but other than that: I’d live there.

Sailing an Island

You read right. Not a typo. Not sailing to an island, but sailing an island. Great if you can’t decide whether to sit on an island, or go sailing. This is obviously a concept, although the design firm have “a number of leads”…. Check out more pictures here at charterworld.com. Does remind me quite a […]

Giant Lady Takes Bath

Hamburg, Germany. Today, a giant woman came down from the hills near Hamburg and took a bath. People from all over the city took to craft of various sizes to take a closer look at her and her two orange bath toys. Many were in positions which could, had the woman moved or stood up, […]

Home Decoration for Geeks

Now that its cool to be a geek, it seems only logical to furnish your home in the appropriate way. I mean, jocks have had trophy rooms and sports memorabilia on their walls for years right. Lets start with some basics: Furniture. Couches, coffee tables, desks, you name it. Even cushions. Here is some inspiration. […]

Transfer Accelerator

It may seem a slightly unusual name for what is effectively a slide. However, in this case it seems justified, and frankly I cannot think of a single reason why we could not install these bad boys in London. (well, except that people would never get out of the way fast enough, so there would be a […]
