Sorry for such a lack of posts. With everything going on- moving and getting a new job its been quite hard doing everything. But I AM in the process of decorating my new fantastic apartment and I WILL be posting pictures soon! as soon as i get my bookcases up. I wanted to be all fancy with my bookshelves but I honestly can’t find the time to do it. So i will just stick with my resources and do what I can. Also- just as a side note- my computer has been crashing everytime i try to upload my middle east photos so until i get this new computer of mine I can’t do much.
But here are some photos to wet your mouth for design.
Designed by Ryuki Nakamura Architects, the ‘Bench Between Pillars’ is a 7ft. rest place in Seibu Ikebukuro Flagship Store, Minamiikebukuro, Toshima-ku, Tokyo.

anyone bold enough? yes boys- this is exactly what you think it is. The Tampon Top. “By grouping single tampons together, I created a complex but versatile top,” Raes tells Ecouterre. “The object you shy away from actually becomes beautiful.” And even though the tampon top isn’t made of recycled materials to begin with, it certainly is reusable—as long as you’ve stored it in a sanitary place, that is.’
you head is literally up your own butt! This fun experiment with helmet designs is really more of a photoshop feat. The Kazakhstan-based creative marketing and PR firm GOOD! wanted to try the synthesis of two different objects around one form.
Some are clever visual puns, others just play with texture and objects. Either way, they are a fun little project to peruse.
the craziest fake eyelashes ever! – and you thought you saw the best of them when you spotted girls sporting feather ones. PAPERSELF is a new platform for cardboard and paper designs from a collaboration of designers. Launching at 100% Design, London 2009 the brand aims to create a growing range of paper and cardboard produced furniture, products, accessories & art. Eco and life style products. The paper eyelashes being the first design introduced to Australia and New Zealand.
The Iris van Herpen X United Nude product is a glamorous ankle bootie with smooth round lines and golden leather detailing on the front and back of the shoe, with three-dimensional characteristics. Transparency, reflections and movements create the effect of visual estrangement.Therefore, the production of this unique product has been kept to the very low number of 240 limited edition pairs worldwide of which 168 are in black with gold and 72 in ivory with gold.
nited Nude’s Creative Director Rem D Koolhaas reflected on the collaboration by saying: “I was introduced to Iris after I had admired her work. I offered to make shoes for her, as I know that for fashion designers shoes always come as an afterthought and most fashion designers don’t have the resources to get it all done on time. I think the result of our work together is that of a pure and successful collaboration as her identity and our expertise and craftsmanship are joined in this marvelous product”.
design is limitless! see you soon
