Marquette Turner love cool lights, and this design from Tord Boontje – with its natural element – is a highlight, proving that sometimes the simplest things are the most dazzling. The glass design has been created for Artecnica and combines transparent glass and etched metal “reminiscent of museum glass
cases that preserve samples of luxurious, exotic vegetation found in remote, pristine jungles.”

The Lakeside Architectural Property with Natural Materials in Finland http://bit.ly/nogpzn

As we continue to look at overseas property that catches our eye, Villa Mecklin in the coastal area around the Finnish community of Velkua is certainly an architectural project worth noting. We’re told that even smaller residences can take many years to complete but for the design and construction of Villa
Mecklin, however, the team at Huttunen-Lipasti-Pakkanen Architects was afforded a little grace when it came to the time frame.

only does it keep its footprint to a minimum, but it also creates
those luxuries that one doesn’t instinctively think of when
considering Singapore-living – peace, privacy and tranquility.

The Modern Sliding Kitchen Work-Top by Minimal http://bit.ly/iAex28

After the bedroom, we spend the majority of time at home in the kitchen. So it stands to reason that the room should be an end place to use, rather than being an after-thought in the design
department.

Design guru’s Minimal have certainly taken this to heart, with their sliding work-top which is a tribute to both contemporary design & minimalism.

With true Italian style the Flora Style Fusion bathroom line creates a
polished blend of elegance and intricacy using the most sumptuous and
smooth of timber materials.

The Italian company creates unique pieces with imprinted veneer designs
of exceptional quality, masterfully melding contemporary forms and
design with classic craftsmanship.

But is such fusion timeless or will its star quickly fade? Is such
design suitable for the home or would it be better placed in a luxury
hotel? What do you think?

When a restaurant �looks� sumptuous from the moment you walk in, your
dining experience is already enhanced even before you�ve taken a bite of
food.

Twister is a new restaurant concept proposed for a space in Kiev, the
capital of Ukraine. The design team, Sergey Makhno and Vasily Butenko
also of Kiev, work on residential and commercial interiors and
architecture but it�s particularly their furniture and sculptural
approach to interiors which are fascinating eye-candy.

Armless Chinese Artist Paints Using Only His Teeth and Feet
http://ping.fm/59erl

Losing an ear didn�t seem to detract from Vincent Van Gogh�s artistic
skill, but Chinese artist Huang Guofu�s use of only his mouth and feet
is quite remarkable.

Self-taught, after his father became ill an 18 year old Guong 18 chose
to leave school and pursue painting as a profession in order to help pay
for his father�s medical treatments. He started selling his art on his
local streets and some were purchased, albeit generally through sympathy
and for �charitable� amounts.

The conceptual Strand-Craft-166, a somewhat stealth-like looking craft
that is certainly super in every sense of the word, and unsurprisingly
features a floating “garage” in the aft.

The yacht would certainly not look out of place in a James Bond movie.
There is a retractable fly-bridge, a hidden spa that features a built-in
bar, and the living area boasts five double ensuite staterooms equipped
with 52-inch Bang & Olufsen televisions, mood lighting and there’s even
the option of the upholstery being crafted from bullet-proof Japanese
Samurai tread leather.

(click on the link to read more and see more images)

Created by Dutch designer Robert van Embricqs, The Rising Chair was
borne from one fundamental question: "To what degree is the object
you're creating capable of dictating its own design?"

With straightforward beam-like wood strands, The Rising Chair is formed
by a grid-like pattern that "blossoms" into what seems like a complex
flower petal.
