World’s Largest LED Project Completed in Abu Dhabi

The world’s largest LED project has been recently completed in Abu Dhabi. Asymptote Architecture holds the credit for such a marvelous design and Arup holds the credit for lighting design. The project has been implemented on the Yas Hotel where the entire structure is covered with 5300 panels in diamond shape containing over 5000 LED fixtures. The lighting structure is such that color changing sequences of light can be displayed and the design is also capable of running three dimensional videos of low resolution.

The Yas Hotel has two buildings each with 12 storeys and has a neon canopy at the top that looks more like a Formula One race track. The hotel consists of 500 rooms spanning up to 85000 square meters and that is obvious that the blinking lights and cars would take away your sleep.

The use of LEDs is certainly remarkable and the design definitely owes applause. Though, LEDs are one of the cheapest as well as efficient sources of light energy, having covered the entire building with them gives the feeling of a monumental design. Anyhow, the project will definitely blow the minds of people with its remarkable display and design.

 

The Utopian Sea Cities of Our Future?

There is always the imagination for different buildings on different environments. Of all that, there is being around for a long time, it is a building built under the deep ocean. Even though we all believe it can be done with modern technology, but those who thought of such imagination is reaching a century old.

It is a building that would require to self sustain, for its energy powers, capable of responding to all emerging issues from the environments of that from the ocean, and it has to be best suit to be in the sea. It was one the ideas of imaginations of many of the students in architecture. It is like their wild imagination, the achievement of the impossible.

Carbon Fiber Coffee Table

This is most expensive coffee table ever seen before, which was made by Rhys Mellor a boat builder, originally from New Zealand. The Coffee Table worth $16,000 and is made up of carbon uni-bands on the edges and middle for stiffness. Carbon fiber being susceptible to compression, a 5mm core has been created in between, giving the table its solid look.

I admit that it’s a beautiful piece of furniture, simple, stylish and modern in the same time. And the material used is also to be appreciated. But honestly, the price is over the top. After all it’s just a table. I can see how a boat is expensive because that one is actually floating above water and it’s big and keeps you dry when sailing over the seas and having fun with your friends. But this is just a simple coffee table, small and insignificant.

All you do is use to have coffee in the morning and then that’s it. Maybe if I has ton of money and I had soothing to do with them I would consider buying a coffee table that’s so expensive. But even then I wouldn’t want to buy this one. It has a relatively interesting design, but it’s not that creative and honestly it’s a little boring. So this is one coffee table that I really don’t like.

361° shelf tower by Fischerundfritze

Easy to transport and set, a shelf is nowadays an indispensable item. With so many appliances in the market, shelves have suffered a strong evolution in the last times, in areas such as 361° shelf tower by Fischerundfritze. The tower has four sides and rotates 360° ideally for those who have collection of CDs and DVDs.

It’s a great piece of furniture for small spaces because it allows you to store a large number of items and because it’s build like an apartment house you don’t need a lot of space. The base is only a few inches wide so you can just place it in a corner or anywhere you have a little space left.

The shape of this structure also allows you to easily organize your CD or DVD collection according to your own criteria. For example you can use the top shelf to store the ones you use less often, because it’s harder to get them, and then the one at the base for the children movies in case you have kids, so that they can have access to them anytime they want without bothering you. I really like this piece. It’s simple and very functional, like it should be.

ModCell Prefab Homes,an Alternative Building System

I already have on my site a top of 12 Best Prefab Homes Around The World, and today I want to present another prefab house made from prefabricated panels from a UK company called ModCell. This prefabricated panels are very highly attractive, energy-efficient and very sustainable.

The ModCell uses straw bale in their panels. These panels are air-tight, mold resistant, and result in practically no waste during prefabrication. Extra wood scraps are burned in the factory’s biomass boiler, extra straw or hemp goes to farms to be used as bedding, and any leftover metal scraps are recycled.

The design of this cute house is very simple. It has a geometrical shape. It’s actually a big cube that you can live in. There’s a lot of wood involved in this project so it’s going to be a very comfortable and relaxing place to live in. It’s like your own refuge, your own place where you can go to escape the busy world. I really like this house. It’s simple and elegant and it makes great use of what nature has to offer. It also respects the environment, which is quite rare. There should be more houses like this one, and there’s still hope that this will someday become reality.

Pool Glass Coffee Table by Bensen

Glass topped coffee tables are a popular choice in coffee tables industry; however, etched designs in a glass coffee table are not as widely available. The living room is the heart of your home, so you’ll want something that provides the feeling of warmth and beauty. This is what you get with glass coffee tables.

At first glance, the Pool table appears as a square floating above the floor. The clear glass sides and colored top combine to make a table that is simple in its aesthetic appeal and exact in its execution. The Pool Glass Coffee Table was designed by Bensen and comes in a palette of colors and sizing allowing for unique combinations by nesting different pieces .

It’s a beautiful and elegant piece. As many coffee tables designs, this one had to have something special so the designers chose glass. Now it’s a real tradition for the coffee tables to have ingenious and surprising designs. People are more and more hard to please. They get bored really easy by the old designs and they always demand more. And that’s good in you’re a furniture designer because it keeps you busy.If you decide to buy one you can find for 650$.

Suppenkaspar Table by Nina and Isabel Farsen Grupp

From a collaboration between two German designers Nina and Isabel Farsen Grupp, both graduates of the University of Arts in Berlin in 2007 results a table with 2 legs. The missing two legs of the table are compensated by weights fixed in the appropriate places. Held by nearly invisible thin strings, the weights make sure the table is balance enough to let you keep your stuff on without fretting about falling.

It’s an ingenious idea that makes you rethink the whole conception you had about this piece of furniture. It’s almost impossible to imagine that a table can have only two legs and still be functional. Not only that, but this ingenious table also provides you with two fun elements that keep you busy while using the table.

It would make a great piece of furniture for those who own cats. The balancing features places in two of the table’s corners come in different shapes and sizes. They will keep your cat busy at least for a while. And the cats are not the only one who like this table, as you can see in the pictures. There’s also a version with a soccer ball incorporated. That’s a nice idea, especially for this sport’s fans.
