How do you guys like this Mona Lisa folding chair? You could put it on your wall, or sit on it! I really like it, weird as it is, it catches my eye. The frame is so cool! Created by Korean designer Kwang Hoo Lee, you can read more about it here on CubeMe.
These amazing beeswax sculptures were created by Hilary Berseth, with the help of many bees! To get the bees to build their combs in the shapes he would like, he constructs basic frameworks out of wire and wax, and then puts them into a closed box in the spring. After that the bee colonies take over, filling out his templates with wax cells, then stuffing them with honey. Check out NYMagazine for more information and a really nice little slideshow about it!
Via For me, for you.
All these animals were created using the land masses of the Earth, and without changing the shapes or dimensions! They’re a little rough, but I like them! Does anyone know who did them? The site where I saw them doesn’t say…
I’ll bet you never thought to spend the night in a renovated sewage pipe! However, at Das Parkhotel in Austria you can cozy up and spend the night (or a few) along the banks of the Danube in one of these well-decorated (and clean) pipe rooms. There are some more pictures on the hotel’s site. I’d totally try it! Would you?
This is the most awesome store front ever! This is The Guitar Store in Southampton England, with its security grate pulled down. I think it is so creative and clever to use the grate as the front of a speaker! Plus, the knobs on the speaker go up to 11, rather than 10! You can see that in the bigger size image, which is here. So cool!
Wow. When I first saw the top picture, I thought it was real for a moment before realizing it was one of those sidewalk optical illusions. Knowing that, the last picture still kind of freaks me out! Edgar Mueller is apparently who is responsible for this coolness, but the site is in French so I can only gather so much…
Via all the good things.
Jenna works with colors amidst a huge mass of swatches and cloth.
Megan works on color, amidst the same huge mass of swatches…
I just loved the way this pile of sheer material looked.
Trim Town got reorganized! It looks so neat and tidy!
Natasha shows off her awesome sequined unicorn shirt!
Jasmine stitching a sample and giggling away!
Dana is also very amused as she works on a sample! He he!
These cool projections have been popping up on the sides of buildings in Bristol, UK, thanks to the Watermarks Project.
From their website:
Sea levels are rising due to climate change… but how much could they rise and how quickly? And how could this affect the city of Bristol?
Watermarks is a public art project that will use a series of large-scale projections at sites across the centre of the city to explore these questions.
For a gallery of the projections, see the Watermarks Project’s website.
Via It’s Nice That.
