Geisha form a very interesting part of Japanese culture, marked by beauty, sensuality and grace. Designer Lorenza Bozzoli seeks to interpret the same grace into the Juuyo lamps. The name itself is derived from the predecessor of Geisha. Juuyo lamps are largely based on the wigs or the hairstyle Geisha are said to have adorned. The pendant lamps are available from Moooi in two designs, one showing peach blossoms, and the other depicting koi fish.
We have to admit we were mislead into believing that we would be looking at lamps. That’s just not what you expect to run into when you read “Screw Me.” The lamps by Jonathan Rowell make use of a screw like function to change their alignment and setting using the twists of the screw, but at the end of the day we feel like the name still overshadows the lamp. Oh hey, I think I’ll pay for a screw (me).
Tadam is a collection of ceramics baked into the shape of desserts, usually donuts or chocoltes and intended to be worn as jewelry. Because someone who wears donuts is just the dessert everyone’s been looking for. To add to the jewelry quotient, the ceramic desserts are often covered in gold and platinum to give them a touch of traditional jewelry, and probably to take away focus from them being donuts. Don’t listen to us though, we don’t know much about jewelry; we do know donuts though.
Designer Sophie de Oliveira Barata takes quite an interesting stance in the Alternative Limb Project, where the prosthetics take a dose of art and design that are not hidden, but flaunted. The way we see it, this is a very radical idea that challenges the society’s perception of prosthetics and how they should be dealt with.
The feces font is all about writing alphabets with feces, and we might say that’s the craziest font we’ve run into. We question how they managed to put all those alphabets in place. A very talented person? Or did someone just arrange the shit.
Designer Kobi Levi has an excellent number of creative shoe designs under his belt, and he has continued to show off more stunning and creative designs. All that is pretty cool if you are a shoe lover, and we’ll take the liberty to assume the fresh designs also happen to be loved by those who won’t necessarily classify themselves as shoe lovers.
I look at this and I think, how does this even work? Indoor diving I can understand, but indoor skydiving is a whole different plate. For skydiving you expect to jump thousands of feet, which a moderately high building would probably not be able to accomplish. Then again, you add enough perspective, and things just might fall into place. Warsaw studio Moko Architects has plans to build an indoor diving and skydiving center.
The unusual shape of the banana pool table has to be a little bit of a challenge and a departure from the usual for regular pool players. Its value beyond a novelty is debatable, but we are sure most players won’t mind trying a hand on this one. Banana pool table is the work of designer Cléon Daniel who completed the table with the help of a retired carpenter. The general banana shape the hardwood frame of this table follows is worked on very well with the yellow felt wrap that covers the top.
Cappellini‘s Peacock Chair might not be as colorful as the real deal, but it sure does try to mimic the real one in form. Plus, it does try to make up with the lack of colors in the individual chairs with a variety of bright colors in available options.
Earlier this year, Lamborghini showed its willingness to depart from conventional car design with the Veneno. Now, it apparently wants to cement the idea with the Egoista. This one though, is a one-off concept made to celebrate 50 years of the marque. The single seater supercar has a silver body with orange rims and accents, plus really sharp and pronounced curves and cuts that are intended to give it a look and feel similar to its inspiration, airplanes and jets.
