An abandoned quarry in China is all set to become the spot of luxuries as construction begins on a new 19-story luxury hotel. To be built inside a cave at the base of the Tianmenshan Mountain, the hotel will rise only 15 meters above the ground and will sport a garden at its roof.
A few studies have shown that people tend to be quite unhygienic about washing hands after urination. One study by Michigan University shows 15% of men don’t wash their hands after urination, and of those who do, 50% don’t use soap. Seeing things are way not cool, designer Kaspars Jursons created the STAND, a urinal with a sink and tap on top.
Shtox ever spinning whiskey glass has a special base that is primed for spinning for a very long time. They’ve thrown in the word infintiy but since all good things come to an end, the spinning glass must stop some time too. A Red Dot Design Awards winner, the glass has an etched spiral pattern and a carefully crafted base to allow it to spin.
It would seem that we just can’t have enough spiders around, so it is only natural that the house furniture too follow the form of our future scary overlords. Artist and designer Bruno Freire has a liking for furniture that takes after insects, often, spiders.
Going into the idea of using buildings as gigantic pollution filters, this concept imagines the BT Tower in London playing its role in keeping the air clean. That the renderings happen to look like the lair of some scary alien race in sci-fi movies, is probably just a happy coincidence.
Airships are amazing. Of course, they had plenty good reasons to go out of use when they did, but when the modern world understands aviation way better and has the means to make it safer, there is no reason airships shouldn’t make a comeback. If only for recreational purposes. UK based designer Mac Byer‘s Aether airship concept takes a very well imagined detour from the conventional airship appearance towards a form that is more modern and practicable, while keeping the necessary elements of the airship intact.
Design student Shea Draney spent a good amount of time coming up with this concept watch. Taking some inspiration from space and astronomy, the designer worked the visualization to suit his ideas. The face of the watch is intended to represent a black hole, while the number rings represent an entirely different idea from astronomy in the shape of orbits.
A cabin placed quite on the woods on the slopes of the Raethian Alps in Italy, the “Green Box” has the appearance of a lovely little retreat ensconced in vegetation not just figuratively, but literally. Built by Act Romegialli Architects, it is a structure made from lightweight metal galvanized profiles and steel wires wraps, which serve as a three dimensional support for the climbing deciduous vegetation.
Our love for hammocks is no secret; make it as wonderful and creative as this and the dazzle in the eyes cannot be suppressed. Carrying a rather simple name, Vessel from Splinter Works happens to be a bathtub drawn into the shape of a hammock.
Babies need to be on the path of awesomeness from the get go. Starting off with strollers seems like a pretty good idea. Roddler Custom series seems to be a part of the game, and allows strollers to be customized in various styles, including the Batmobile. All that we must admit, looks pretty darn good. Until you see the $4495 price tag, that is. You’d really want a fortune like that of the Wayne’s before you get something like this.
