Schneider Beer: Maturation

Schneider Beer - Maturation 1 Schneider Beer - Maturation 2

The taste and quality of a Schneider Beer could be summarized in a big secret: maturation time. Ogilvy & Mather Argentina and Schneider visualized that this maturation is the same that men need: conquering a blonde and a brunette, cheating on your girlfriend, sneaking out, etc.

Vintage Bus Becomes Rad Home Office

Vintage Bus Becomes Rad Home Office 5

For all of the indignities that public transportation seems to cause, there are still plenty of people out there who feel a certain affection toward the vehicles that move us around every day. This incredible home office must belong to one of those people, because it’s made from the front end of a real Ikarus bus.

The old Ikarus is in a home in Hungary, which is fitting since Ikarus is a Hungarian company. When the project began the bus was old, rusted and quite neglected. A few coats of paint, some loving restorations – and the removal of all but one small corner – and the bus was ready to become a distinctive home office.

Tiger & Turtle Roller Coaster Turned Pedestrian Walkway

There comes a time when things don’t necessarily serve their original purpose any longer– and this Tiger & Turtle Magic Mountain structure is now an interesting piece to climb all over. Having Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth behind the transformation was key.

The walkable outdoor large-scale sculpture is located in Duisburg, Germany. It transitions beautifully from day to night with LED lights emitting bright light from the stair rails; making it an enjoyable walk any time of day or evening. The curved flights of stairs mimics the classical roller coaster, with the visitors climbing afoot via different paths.

White Futuristic Facade Home in France

Sculptors Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus took a forever existing space and gave the exterior a little face lift complete with polystyrene and paint. For a building that once served as a funeral home, prison and a school, it is now turned to a “ghost house” of sorts. Providing information and utilizing the space as a visitor’s center of sorts with an extraordinary outside that simply draws the outside indoors.

TED Talk: Cameron Russell – Looks aren’t everything. Believe me, I’m a model

Cameron Russell - Looks aren't everything. Believe me, I'm a model

Cameron Russell admits she won “a genetic lottery”: she’s tall, pretty and an underwear model. But don’t judge her by her looks. In this fearless talk, she takes a wry look at the industry that had her looking highly seductive at barely 16-years-old.

Filmed at TEDxMidAtlantic.

Festina Lente Loop Bridge in Bosnia

Festina-Lente-Loop-Bridge-in-Bosnia-1 Festina-Lente-Loop-Bridge-in-Bosnia-2 Festina-Lente-Loop-Bridge-in-Bosnia-3 Festina-Lente-Loop-Bridge-in-Bosnia-4 Festina-Lente-Loop-Bridge-in-Bosnia-5 Festina-Lente-Loop-Bridge-in-Bosnia-6 Festina-Lente-Loop-Bridge-in-Bosnia-7

Former Design students Adnan Alagic, Bojan Kanlic and Amila Hrustic won a competition to create a forward thinking bridge spanning across the Miljaka River in Bosnia – and about 5 years later, the actual finished product was born.

Called ”Festina Lente”, this upside down looping bridge creates a bit of an overhang to protect users from the elements as well as some interesting looking seating for passersby. The loop creates both a visual and emotional connection with different paths colliding in one neutral location. At night, the architecture looks even more appealing across the short span of water.

Whimsical Hotel Viura located in the Spanish wine valley

Spain’s Hotel Viura was designed by Designhouses firm, and their overall concept ties in beautifully with the winery landscape.

The interior of the boutique style hotel is simple, and each guest room filled with different decor. The public areas are outfitted with natural elements that are juxtaposed with a more mid-century modern feel. Rooftop terraces, a sleek bar and white table cloth dining complete the hotel stay – though the fun of Spain only begins where Viura ends.
