GGrr kmvmdgfffff uy. Hold on, trying to pick my jaw up off the keyboard. Traumgedanken (Thoughts on Dreams) by German artist Maria Fischer is a 76-page collection of literary, philosophical, psychological and scientific texts on dream theories interlinked with thread.
To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming. Analogue to a dream, where pieces of reality are assembled to build a story, it brings different text excerpts together. They are connected by threads which tie in with certain key words. The threads visualise the confusion and fragileness of dreams.

Made of New York is a simple, modern furniture collection constructed from industrial-era materials salvaged from demolished buildings. The furniture is the brainchild of former creative director of Ikea Sweden, John-Michael Ekeblad, furniture designer Jonathan Locke and timber-sourcing expert Brian Kane.
The process begins with sourcing the wood, much of which comes from torn down 19th-century buildings. In determining the use for each part the team aims to have “minimal treatment of the wood in favor of sustaining its naturally worn out beauty and charm.” The resulting pieces are each completed within five to ten days, using water-based stains and sealers and wood plugs whenever necessary.
