Ink Calendar by Oscar Diaz

Here is an interesting idea for a calendar by Oscar Diaz. The ink is absorbed slowly, and the numbers in the calendar are “printed” daily. One a day, they are filled with ink until the end of the month. Each month has another color, the colors range from dark blue in December to, three shades of green in spring or orange and red in the summer.

It’s an original idea that I have never seen before. And it involves something that everyone is using every day. Calendars are one of the oldest concepts that people came up with. At first we were able to tell time by the position of the sun and then someone came up with the idea of creating a calendar, a structure that helps us keep track of time. Everyone uses them regardless of the type.

The most common type of calendar is the one that usually hangs on the wall where everybody can see it. And this one is more or less based on the same principles, although it’s a lot more attractive. Still, as beautiful and interesting as it may be, it still takes a lot of space that not everybody has. But you can’t have it all.

Aerodynamical Bathroom by Andrey Bondarenko

A wash basin and a W.C pan, these two should always be fitted together because, as we all know, it is very important to always wash your hands after using the lavatory. Both inspired by the famous car studio Pininfarina. Designed by Andrey Bondarenko of 2-B-2 Architecture, feature Aerodynamical forms, fast and sporty, these 2 piece of furniture comes in two colors: fresh green (the symbol of life,) and scarlet (a traditional racing color).

I honestly don’t know what else to say about this collection.  I don’t even know what to think about it. It’s so…surprising and odd. I like the colors and the wash basin but overall it’s to odd. I’m not sure if I should love it or hate it.

I guess it could look good in a modern bathroom or in a very colorful place. You could include these pieces in your home but I don’t think they could match with anything. They would better fit in a public space, in a club or anywhere else. They have a very strange shape that makes them look suspicious. Their aspect makes you think like something is missing. They look more like toys than like actual functional features that can be used in the bathroom.{found on yankodesign}

I don’t think you can ever find a faucet simpler than this one. It’s a minimalist design that adds indisputable elegance to any bathroom, regardless of the style that you have chosen for the rest of the features or the design you have chosen for the interior. Not only that but this faucet also features the latest trend in terms of technological developments in this domain. The touch sensors allow you to easily control the temperature of the water as well as the pressure. This faucet makes the old ones look like piece of junk, no offense to those who still own them.

I still have to deal with the old, outdated and noisy faucet design, like most of us have to do. When looking at this new faucet design and its features, it almost seems like a dream. But unlike the dreams you have at night, this one has a real chance of becoming true.

The tub is not exactly egg-shaped. It’s more like half an egg placed horizontally. But still, the curves resemble the egg’s shape very well. I assume it must be very a very comfortable piece, assuming by the size and friendly shape. It’s the perfect environment for you to take a nice long and relaxing bath, to forget about all the problems even if it’s just for a few minutes.

A very ingenious feature that makes this bathtub stand out is the storage space incorporated in the design. It allows you to store your lotions, hair product and this kind of stuff. But not just that, you can even use it to store other things as well, not just hygiene products. You could have some books or magazines in there just in case you might want to read something while in the bathroom. It’s clever and convenient.

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.

 

Japanese Agura Sofa by Hisae Igarashi 3

Modern minimalist designs are not the same as the old, harsh decor that existed years ago. The new look for minimalist interior design is a softer look, more personal and easier to live with. The Agura Sofa by Hisae Igarashi was designed for SAJICA,. The unique sofa and ottoman featuring a minimalist look are made from pure Japanese Igusa that not only makes it an eco-friendly product, but also adds elegance to the whole set.

Also the Agura sofa is supposedly capable to adsorb the humidity in the room and this way it can purify the toxic substances in the air, such as formaldehyde. The Agura Sofa will be at the upcoming 2010 IMM Cologne show in Germany.

Japanese Agura Sofa by Hisae Igarashi 3

I think that we can all agree that this is a very simple, even minimalist piece of furniture that is also elegant and maybe even beautiful. But there’s also something else that is very important when it comes to sofas, and this one doesn’t have it. It’s the lack of comfort that I’m talking about. This sofa does not look comfortable at all. There are no cushions or anything soft to sit on, there’s just the wood, covered in fabric. That’s not how I would like my sofa to look like. Maybe the Japanese can live like that, but the rest of us need a little more in order to feel good about our furniture.
