Georg Jensen Elephant Bottle Opener

You need a lot of things around the house, many of them so small that you don’t realize you need them until you do. One of these things is the bottle opener. Yes, I know most bottles nowadays have an easy to open cap that is switched and leaves you access to the contents of the bottle. However, there are still some soda or beer manufacturers that still use metal caps that need a bottle opener. And if you need one any way why shouldn’t you use a funny one? Like this bottle opener that was designed by Jorgen Moller  for Georg Jensen , Denmark .

The designer was inspired by the elephant shape while he was on a safari in Africa and combined this with his Scandinavian tradition and made this beautiful elephant-shaped bottle opener. You use the space between the elephant’ s trunk and feet to open the bottles. The device is made of steel and this confers the necessary resistance needed for opening the bottles. This item can make a very funny and useful gift, too and you can buy it now for $55.

Kids Cafe Made of Cardboard

Kids are smaller replicas of their parents and they learn all the things they have to do in life by imitating them. So it is only natural to see them play their favourite game: let’s play adults! They mimic adults and try to behave just like them and, if you are a parent, you must admit that you can often see your kids using your very words on several occasions. So they pretend to be grown-ups and that is why they want their own “homes”, miniature houses made for their size where they can play this game better. So if kids see you, their parent, drinking coffee, they will “drink” imaginary coffee out of small plastic cups. ANd if you offer them a real cafe for this it’s like a dream come true.

Elm & Willow Family House by Architects EAT Architecture

This beautiful and quiet family home is located South Yarra, Victoria, Australia and it’s not a new project. The project, developed by Architects EAT Architecture, actually involves the restoration of an existing Edwardian house. Some part have been preserved and redesigned while others, like the rear of the house, were demolished in order to make place for a new addition to the house.

The new structure that has been added creates a very visible contrast between the dark corridor of the house and the open and transparent addition. The idea was to create a mixture of open and closed spaces that would represent interchangeable elements and could be used as the owners pleased. The house is an U-shaped plan with a north-facing courtyard in the middle. Even though the house features concrete floor and roof slabs, these have been detailed and designed in a way that make them seem light, floaty and airy, contributing to the overall bright and simple look of the house.

Microsoft Romania Office Interior Design

The local headquarter of the biggest software producer is a big, creative and very colorful space. “Workspace Advantage” is how the company calls the concept of attempting to functionally use as much space as possible from a certain building. Microsoft Romania rented 2.450 sq meters in the southern tower of the City Gate building. That space can accommodate up to 190 employees, even though there are offices for only 121. The company moved in the new headquarter in January 2010 and it currently has 125-130 employees.

This is possible because of the company’s policy that allows employees to also work from home or from the client’s or partner’s place. Another interesting fact is that the company is trying to implement a system that would require employees to change their workspace as frequently as possible. Around 60% of the employees often change their workplace while the others have a stable office. The headquarter features a restaurant area where employees can eat, 16 conference rooms as well as several rooms called “Phone Both” where employees can use their phones without disturbing the others.
