Wonderfully minimal table lamp by Brian Sironi, for the Italian manufacturer Martinelli Luce. The simplicity is even more apparent when you try ooking for a on/off switch, only to realise that its arm is the switch is the light.Read More
My concept is mutation — mutants. The product is from nature, from the white sap of latex trees but here it’s changed. The color is black. The look is scary. Rubber is very flexible, like skin, like muscles.
Geeky I know… but beyond the obvious observations of how retro-8bit-great these look, the implications of a fully-rendered moving image made by coding individual pixels in a browser just blows my mind. You have to see them for yourself, in a Google Chrome browser, and bear in mind that these are not images, nor videos. Just coded pixels. *BOOMZ* Mind blown…Read More
Nokia’s Vertu mobile devices has been cornering the market for luxury communication devices for a while now, so the wealthy must be welcoming the newest addition to the market in the form of Æsir, a new Copenhagen-based, design-focused mobile phone company.

The Japanese earthquake, tsunami and energy crisis trifecta has dealt the most terrible blow to Japan and her people. Those of us lucky enough to be sitting at home in front of our computers could do the very least and help out with donations to the Japanese Red Cross.

Dearest our friends in the world,
As you may already have known, Japan was hit by the largest earthquake ever recorded on Friday, March 11th. The huge quake and devastating tsunami has left the overwhelming damage to the country and we are still facing this terrifying conditions.
As I have received the message from all over the world, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere appreciation for your warmest concerns. This is the time for us to think what we can really do. I have thought what I could do now, at this moment. I believe that there would be more than just watching the situation of this disaster on television to help the lives of people there
I know I am not in place to ask such thing, yet one of the thing that we can do for the people in the afflicted area is to donate for their relief and recovery. There are babies in need of milk, people who has lost their families, and houses. Here are links to the donation for the relief and recovery of the Japanese earthquake and Pacific tsunami afflicted region

In response, I created a small tribute piece which I shared on Dribbble and soon after on Twitter. I found it humbling to see people changing their Facebook & Twitter profile pictures to this image to show their support. I thought I would officially share the image & source here for people to use as they wish.
Too funny not to share! In a shoot gone wrong, Israeli model and actress Orit Fox was bitten by the snake she was interacting with, on her breast. Fortunately for the model it was silicone, unfortunately for the snake it was silicon. It died.
They really should rename this news flash: ‘Eve’s Revenge’. Via News Amen.
