Free books

idea_free books

I truly love concepts like this one: Leaving books, you don’t want anymore, for others to take. Don’t letting them just stand there at home for no use. But passing it one – for free.

And this installation is even made in a super creative wooden design.
I want an “Exchange Place” like this in my hood!

Get your own Viking Ship from Denmark’s Viking Ship Museum

Viking Ship from Denmark's Viking Ship Museum 1 Viking Ship from Denmark's Viking Ship Museum 2 Viking Ship from Denmark's Viking Ship Museum 3

After touring a museum, what do you think is the best gift shop souvenir to commemorate your visit? A post card? A magnet?

At the Viking Ship Museum here in Denmark, you can get your own authentic handcrafted Viking ship. Or you can buy it online!

Part of the facility features a workshop where modern day craftsmen use authentic ancient tools and techniques to build copies of Viking boats. The boat pictured above is actually partly made using authentic Viking tools, but modern equipment as well, so that it can be more easily mass-produced. As a result, the Trýbekkur, as it’s called, will only cost you just north of $24,500.

3LEGS tables by Studio Nomad

3LEGS tables by Studio Nomad 1 3LEGS tables by Studio Nomad 2 3LEGS tables by Studio Nomad 3 3LEGS tables by Studio Nomad 4 3LEGS tables by Studio Nomad 5

David Tarcali, a member of the Budapest-based Studio-Nomad, designed this coffee and side table collection called 3LEGS.

The three different types of tables are inspired by geometric patterns and architectural shapes. The name 3LEGS reflects the simplicity of how these forms work. Each table is folded from a single sheet of 3-millimeter-thick steel that gives it the characteristic abstract appearance seen from different perspectives.

Room Collection by Erik Olovsson and Kyuhyung Cho

ROOM COLLECTION BY ERIK OLOVSSON & KYUHYUNG CHO 1 ROOM COLLECTION BY ERIK OLOVSSON & KYUHYUNG CHO 2 ROOM COLLECTION BY ERIK OLOVSSON & KYUHYUNG CHO 3 ROOM COLLECTION BY ERIK OLOVSSON & KYUHYUNG CHO 4

“ROOM Collection” is a cool furniture system – made by Erik Olovsson & Kyuhyung Cho, who were interested in diversifying the relationship between object and space to create furniture as rooms for objects. The focus was to explore the mix-and-match quality of the ensemble in our spaces from a graphical approach.

“ROOM Collection” has 25 stackable blocks and a low table with various geometric voids inspired by architecture and the objects they can hold. It’s like a sculpture for your living room! And you decide whether to shape a table, a shelf, or a room divider.

Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa-1 Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa-2

The Great Sleeping Bear” was originally created in 2007  by Eiko Ishizawa. Now it’s finally available for purchase.

“Because the sleeping bags will be made entirely from hand – including the fake nose and teeth – availability is going to be extremely limited. In 2014 Eiko only plans to make seven of them, but each one will be numbered so they can be cherished as pieces of art”.

$2,350 for the adult version, or just $2,050 for the kid’s sized model…
If this is a must-have, buy one here.
