Oh the gems you find on the internet. In anonymous office somewhere in the world, a sandwich went missing. *dun dun dun dun* Its frustrated owner then posted a note, calling out the unknown sandwich thief to stop the shenanigans.

A German design and furniture company came up with this brilliant concept, including a whole room’s worth of furniture in a box that only measures 90 x 120 centimetres. No tools are needed in the process of turning this box into a room, and assembly takes less than 10 minutes!

Since the early 2000s, British artist Ben Long has been delighting many drivers and passengers with his finger illustrations done on the rear doors of commercial trucks. But not on any clean ones, mind you. They have to be coated with a layer of dirt built up from the vehicle’s exhaust emissions so that Long can draw through them using only one finger. The 35-year-old artist calls the ongoing series of his mobile canvases that travel all over the UK ‘The Great Traveling Art Exhibition’.
While fashion designers all over the world are wringing their hands in despair over what new designs they can possibly come up with for the next season’s pair of must-have jeans, one German cosplayer already has it down pat.

How humans have never thought of this design before is a complete mystery. Sydney-based company DM Initiatives has solved one of life’s greatest challenges: spreading cold butter on toast. How? With something as simple as combining a cheese grater with a butter knife.

You know you have some advanced makeup artist skills when you can change your own body part into famous cartoon characters. London-based makeup artist Laura Jenkinson did just that by transforming her mouth into the mouths of Shrek, Popeye, and Nemo, to name a few. It must be a hoot talking to her with those drawings on her face, you’d think you were interacting with the characters themselves!

Yes, yes, he’s a creature of the water, but heck, all that felt must’ve been drenched! Kermit in turn laid his challenge down to three of his Muppets Most […]
A good product designer should develop products that contribute to our lives, helping us as we try to make the best of it. At least, this is what I think so I am puzzled with product designers whose creations leave me scratching my head. Are they laughing at my expense? Take the case of Katerina Kamprani, an Athens-based architect and 3D modeller who, I am guessing, has an unique sense of humour.
Sigh, if only we were canines. Yes, that’s right. They seem to have all the fun. The aptly named Lucky Puppy, a doggy daycare center located in Michigan, threw a puppy pool party recently for all their happy ‘guests’ and amongst a backdrop of a 3 acre playground and 7 acres of nature trails, much […]
