The Pistol Ring would be nice for any engagement

ring-pistol

Long before beeper and cell phone guns, there was the ring pistol. Tiny enough to fit around your finger, powerful enough to be manufactured as a weapon.  Tiny bullets.

Thor Hoy created this simple plywood spring bed with comfortability in mind.  The steel rings at each bed corner make me think that there is a little more kinkiness than comfortability.  Available w/o mattress for 2800 euro here

Mechafushigi

mechafushigi

Mechafushigi is a cool website whose concept goes way over my head.

“MAKA FUSHIGI” is a Japanese term often used to describe mysterious occurrences. It comes from a Sanskrit term “MAHA” meaning highness and “MAKA FUSHIGI” was originally used to express impressive phenomena in the nature that are beyond human understandings.
The MECHAFUSHIGI is a stock of visual representations of the natural phenomena or people’s work reflecting them throughout the web. I hope these resources will help to understand mechanisms of “MAKA FUSHIGI” and to inspire good design.

Hotel Costa Verde’s Boeing 727 fuselage suite

727-hotel-room

The name might not be all that romantic but, the setting is.

“Our classic airplane, nestled on the edge of the National Park in our Costa Verde II area, is perched on a 50-foot pedestal. At this height, you will enjoy scenic ocean and jungle views from the hard wood deck built atop the plane’s former right wing.

The plane’s interior is Costa Rican teak paneling from the cockpit to the tail. Furnishings are hand-carved, teak furniture from Java, Indonesia. Our 727 home features two air conditioned bedrooms–one with two queen sized beds and the other with one queen sized bed, each with its own private bath—a flat screen TV, a kitchenette, dining area foyer; an ocean view terrace; a private entrance up a river rock, spiral staircase; and 360 degrees of surrounding gardens. ”

Wait for the best part…

“Enjoy an evening on the terrace while sipping a glass of wine and observing your tree top neighbors: sloths, toucans and monkeys…”

Sloths, toucans, and monkeys?  I need to go

Students are getting sharper by the day.

This is from the students on the BA (hons) Design for Moving Image Design and Graphic Design courses at Ravensbourne College, who are raising funds for their graduation show

“Rather than the usual cake sale or student union party, we decided to do something a little bit more exciting this year. We will be sending our favourite designers and illustrators packages containing random items (which could be anything from an old teapot, to a skateboard, to a vintage suitcase). They will then be asked to customise these items in any way they see fit. These masterpieces will then be collected and put in a silent auction on the 30th of April at the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane.”

Artist/Designers include: Paula Scher, Milton Glaser, David Carson, KozynDan, Eine, Parra, and many more…

Reyes will customize your bed

reyes-custom-bed

Reyes sent us over images of a newly completed project he did involving a seriously fresh customization of a japanese flat bed.  Here’s what he had to say:

“Recently I undertook another interior design project, this time on a japanese flat bed. The client loved the work so much they purchased a painting from me to complete their bedroom motif. The interior design projects are a great use of my painting abilities, keep an eye out for a new signature line of tables, benches and chairs by yours truly. thanks to Julio,Ann, and Dylan Maddux”
