Remember the classic green army guys? And then the cool army skateboarders and surfers over at Toy Boarders? Well, yoga practitioner and entrepreneur Dan Abramson now created the Yoga Joes - a collection of green army figures doing popular yoga poses like the warrior, cobra, and downward-facing dog.
You can buy your own set right here.
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!
Such a cool and creative video!
After touring a museum, what do you think is the best gift shop souvenir to commemorate your visit? A post card? A magnet?
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.
Longtime bike-builder, 72-year-old Tom Fugle is working to complete a chopper for the Born Free motorcycle show. After years of toiling in relative obscurity and near poverty Tom’s work is at last getting some recognition.
PINCH is a London-based design studio. Inspired by fishermen’s floats, they’ve created this beautiful series of side tables called Float. Hand turned and individually stained in a selection of colours.
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.
Modern life is often compared to running on a hamster wheel: we do the same things over and over, but never seem to get anywhere. This was the subject of an architectural art installation called In Orbit, a 25-foot tall wheel of steel and wood. The two architectural artists Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder lived in the wheel-shaped exhibit for 10 full days – one on the inside and one on the outside.
Each side of the wheel had its own living space, including a wardrobe, bed, desk with laptop and chair, microwave, toilet, and sink. In order to get from one room of the “home” to another, the artists had to move in perfect unison in order to stay standing.
In Orbit was installed inside the Boiler Room, a site run by New York’s Pierogi Gallery.
This is a must-see video – this new technology is no less than awesome!
The video is made with humor to catch more people’s attention on such an important topic.

I absolutely love ideas (being executed) like this!
This is an outdoor library by Ruetemple Architectural Studio.
“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.
This cool Kickstarter project was just funded!
It’s the Brooklyn-based shop Magnetic Kitchen, who designs and produces this great series of laser engraved skateboard decks.
“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.
