Designer Ingo Maurer has always been super creative when designing lamps. You probably know his lamp with notes or the one with lightbulbs with angel wings.

This is his latest creation. It’s limited edition, it’s called “I Ricchi Poveri – Toto“, and it’s a tribute to the iconic Mickey Mouse.

This awesome floating skate ramp was built by a skilled team of craftsmen and launched on Lake Tahoe. It took 300 man hours, 1250 screws and a lot of engineering to make it stable and ensure that it didn’t sink. Behind the project is pro-skater Bob Burnquist. Beautiful work!

Strasbourg Hotel Restaurant by Studio Jouin Manku

Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-01 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-02 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-03 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-04 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-05 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-06 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-07 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-08 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-09 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-10 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-11 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-12

Stunning!

Jouin Manku Studio have designed the interior of the restaurant at Strasbourg Hotel located in Strasbourg, capital of the Alsace region in France.

As conceived by Jouin Manku, the interior design for the hotel and brasserie is characterized by its authenticity and modernity, a particular idea of luxury and comfort inspired by the equestrian world, restrained and subtle.

Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku have expressed their vision of this former stud farm and historic site, in a design that is both elegant and simple. They have deliberately chosen to limit the range of materials used; solid wood, natural full hide leather and blackened or brushed metal to transpose the original life of this emblematic Strasbourg building into something resolutely contemporary and simple, whose architectural details attest to the studio’s creativity.

Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit

Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 1 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 2 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 3 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 4 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 5 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 6 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 7 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 8 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 9 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 10 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 11 Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit 12

I have to say, that this completely gross me out! And yet I find it interesting. And odd. And  disgusting. And, like, trying too hard to stand out. I seriously get sick to my stomach just looking at it.

Performance artist Millie Brown uses her body in an uncomfortable way in order to create bright splashes of color on canvas – and sometimes clothes and people. She mixes colors into soy milk before regurgitating the milk onto her preferred canvas, akin to the drip-color style of Jackson Pollock.

Responses to her work have varied, ranging from laughing to crying, declarations of love, and even death threats, but Brown maintains that art is supposed to inspire powerful emotions in people.

“I have an inherent desire to push my own boundaries within my art… By creating art from the very depths of my own physical being I am able to challenge people’s perception of beauty, expressing raw elements of human nature and in turn challenging myself both physically and mentally”, Millie Brown says.

The Longest Way by Christoph Rehage

The Longest Way by Christoph Rehage 1 The Longest Way by Christoph Rehage 2 The Longest Way by Christoph Rehage 3 The Longest Way by Christoph Rehage 4

This video by  is actually 4 years old.

Christoph writes: “In 2008, I walked through China – one year, more than 4500km. All the while, I let my hair and my beard grow. This is the resulting video.

I never finished my original goal of walking to Germany. Instead, I walked for a year and roughly 4500km, passed the Gobi desert, and then decided to stop walking for now.

All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi was completed solely on foot, straight good old walking. There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.

I had been planning this trip for over a year before I even started, and getting as far as I got was an experience for which I am very grateful.

Obtaining the necessary visa for a trip like this was not very easy, hence I had to go back to Beijing a few times to resolve some issues.

This is not a strict “1 pic a day” video, because I wanted to make it a bit more alive by adding some additional movement. Sometimes during the film you would follow me turn around, or something would happen in the background. I tried to capture these moments to make the video more interesting.”

Big thanks to my friend Lis for finding this.

These are pieces by artist Brett Kern. They are detailed ceramic objects that at first appear almost indistinguishable from inexpensive inflatable toys. Kern mimics the tell-tale wrinkles and forms of air-filled toys like dinosaurs and astronauts – all made from clay.

Check out Brett Kern’s shop on Etsy here.

Lady Gaga – Making of GAGADOLL

Lady Gaga - Making of GAGADOLL 1 Lady Gaga - Making of GAGADOLL 2

Japan’s latest and finest technologies were put into the creation of the “GAGADOLL”. It’s the world’s first life-size human-shaped listening station that closely resembles Lady Gaga. The bone conduction system enables one to listen to her songs and message.
The “GAGADOLL” was inspired by the concept of “ARTPOP” and this masterpiece made by Japan’s master craftsmen has been highly-praised by Lady Gaga herself.
