The barrel oak recycled from discarded wine casks is a ‘green’ material vastly appreciated by innovative furniture designers. But what about the hoops? Stil Novo Design’s Orbit lamp offers a solution that not only makes use of the metal bands from the used barrels, but it also creates a fresh design that complements the contemporary trends of urban and industrial flavor. Steel never looked so handsome.
The Japanese seem to be able to push their creativity where everyone else opts to stop, whether for lack of courage or.excess of good taste. Would you walk around with one of these food iPhone covers? Probably not, but you still can’t help being mesmerized by them.
Ferrari cars represent a social status and decadent life style most of us will only dream of. The fascination with this symbol of wealth and success must have hit designer Charly Molinelli pretty hard as he turns the carcasses of crushed Ferraris into coffee tables and coffins. Could this be our chance to finally own […]
I got to admit, I don’t get the vibe at all. But if you are a sucker for weird, eccentric, avant-garde, realistically unwearable clothes, Thom Browne’s F/W collection is going to really work for you. Where you would wear any of that might be an issue though.

The moment I saw Dolton Ghetti’s amazing sculptures, the first thing that came to my mind was ‘Why?!’ But it takes such an obvious level of skill and out of this world patience (not to mention, a steady hand) to create these mini gems, that I was instantly awestruck. His inimitable work is now showcased at Lori Warner Studio. It’s probably easier to create art through a pencil than on the actual tip of one.
Do you remember those romantic, vintagy looking ceramic figurines sitting on your grandma’s dresser? Well, Jessica Harrison must have felt about them just the way I did. It takes a quite imaginative mind, plus great talent, to turn a little obsession into true art. She accomplishes that with mind-blowing results that will change the way you look at those statuettes for ever.
