Sammy Slabbinck, who describes himself as one who ‘renders dynamic collage prints, combining vintage photographs with contemporary compositional styles’, does all these unexpected collage artworks, including one of an all-star wrestling team comprising of respected musicians like Leonard Cohen, John Lennon, Jim Morrison and David Bowie, The one with the family sitting down at the dining table and drinking up spoonfuls from their soup bowls of unsuspecting swimmers is pure genius.

Liz and Kyle von Hasseln, who started the Sugar Lab when they were both students in architecture school, made these meticulously 3D-printed sugar sculptures out of a mixture of water and alcohol through a process that dampens and hardens the sugar substrate simultaneously.So, yes. Sugar. Wow.
We’ve seen our fair share of kites, but this is really something. Made in collaboration with Balinese artisans, Haptic Lab’s 26” x 28” bamboo and nylon sailing ship kites are handmade shizz that actually fly in strong wind, despite their anchor-dropping appearance.
Designer-educator Forrest Jessee takes a trans-disciplinary approach to his projects, which includes the Sleep Suit, a cool textile piece laser-cut from a single sheet. It’s designed to wrap around any shape so as to allow its inhabitant to curl up and sleep anywhere he likes without feeling smothered. The basic unit of the textile is […]
Made of hand blown pyrex glass, the Meld wine glass is inspired by two forms: the glass and the human hand. The result is a merged curiosity of a drinkware which fits onto the palm ergonomically, almost like a fitted glove. We cannot approve enough.
All right, we think we’ve found just the place to get all our furniture from. The only problem is, we’ll need a bigger place. We’ll also need one of these magic ‘Drink Me’ potions so we can grow ten times bigger to at least get our butt on the darned chair. Robert Therrien is the […]

What an ingenious solution.

When he’s not busy being an ad creative in his day job, Netherlands-based Chungkong does quite a bit of irreverent artwork — such as mounting superheroes on sticks as sweet ice popsicles. Can’t help but think the Captain America one would taste quite good as a cherry vanilla popsicle. Somebody needs to actually manufacture these […]
With everything moving forward so fast technology-wise, it’s a wonder that people still do anything by hand. Fortunately for us, when the plotter came into use on an industrial scale, the art of hand-painted signage didn’t die out completely. There were those few who were too stubborn (or too pure, one could say) to go […]
Richard Mille is famous for producing watches that are as bling as they are detailed driven. Seeing their delicate gearwheels so thoughtfully and aesthetically arranged and layered on top of each other, all while staying well integrated to the overall design, is impressive and a joy to observe in motion as well.
