I keep seeing this ad in design mags so I had to take a look and see what they have. They have a lot. This desk is my favorite. It comes in a few finishes but the white is my favorite. Beautiful simple design by Nueva Linea.
Designed by the Mexican collective NEL for Nanimarquina, the Global Warming Rug portrays a polar bear on a very tiny piece of ice.

Check out this George Lucas inspired Deathstar hotel. ..”The gleaming futuristic looking Full Moon Hotel has an unlikely location – Baku, Azerbaijan, a former member of the Soviet Union. It’s designed to look different depending on the angle you view it from. The full frontal is, quite frankly, the most terrifying view. You wouldn’t want to be across the water from the Death Star-like structure with an evil looking giant eye on the top right hand corner.” via Vagabondish
