Designer Vincent Sall decided the world needed a camera to fit between the gap left between a full fledged DSLR and the smartphone camera, which we assume also includes point and shoot cameras. Anyways, the designer cooked up this ultra compact shooter that boasts of being a lovechild of the DSLR and a smartphone camera.
Presented at the Geneva Motor Show, the Pininfarina Sergio concept takes its name from veteran designer Sergio Pininfarina, to whom many iconic Ferrari’s owe their looks. The concept is a homage to the vision of the remarkable designer who passed away in July last year.
Designer Hussein Chalayan has love for dresses that can transform themselves. For this new line, the designer presented a few dresses that stay ready for transformation without requiring stupendous effort from the user. All that needs to be done for these dresses to transform is a tug at the collar, and voila, there’s an entirely different dress. The video below shows the dresses in action, with the first one appearing around the 2:35 minute mark.
In the wondrous world of design, tentacle-goodness can abound if you have a taste for it. Artist and sculptor Adam Wallacavage created this set of handmade Octopus Chandeliers that come in various shapes, sizes and colors akin to the masters of disguise that form their inspiration.

Neon Skull Lights by artist Eric Franklin are one of those scary things that keeps you looking at them with rapt attention. You might be creeped out, but you somehow can’t bring yourself to look away from the spectacle. Or that’s how they put such things in a couple of not-so-good books I have read. As far as I’m concerned, these lamps are fabulous. It is a set of three skulls, lit up internally through ionized neon, krypton, and mercury. The skulls themselves are made using an intricate network of glass tubes sealed masterfully to create a vacuum.
Once PacMan is in one of his hunger runs, you don’t want to place anything you value near its mouth, least of all your hinds. Thankfully though, there’s no such cause of concern when it’s just a chair like the Pac Seat by Bruno Marques. At least not till some magic turns it sentient.
Gone are the good old days when you could keep humans as objects. You know, like the kind who stand in the background holding a lamp or serving their feudal lord without as much as being perceived or acknowledged. To those nostalgic for the old times, the Embarakiya lamps can provide some relief. Sadly they won’t work exactly as human minions, but you could find some solace in the humanoid shape of these floor lamps, plus the human sounds they utter through a speaker built into their torso.
Trash incinerators are no place for fun; except if you are in Copenhagen because the brand new incinerator coming up there has room enough for a ski slope. It is going to be fun, because not many ski slopes in the world can claim to have hot burning trash underneath them. We’re not sure how people will love skiing a stinky slope, but it seems the project is a go and has already broken ground.
