Dynamic Mercedes Concept Takes Inspiration From a Very Unlikely Source

It is fairly common for designers to take inspiration from the everyday, and apply the same in their work. That seems to have worked very well so far, but few eyebrows are bound to be raised when a designer claims inspiration from a trout… for a supercar.

Old Vespa Transformed Into a Slightly Convenient Workstation

Vespa is a scooter that defined an entire generation, and like all things iconic, it is never going to die. We’re bound to see amazing creations inspired by the Vespa over, and over and over again. This time around, it was a 1968 Vespa Sprint that was turned into a tiny workstation. Not the most ergonomic or comfortable of choices, but that is oh, so cool.
