The Mobile Egg House

In an attempt to save money on rent Dai Haifei, a 24-year-old architect in Beijing has constructed a mobile egg-shaped home from bamboo, wood and grass seed.

He moved the house steps away from his office where he would stay until midnight before going to sleep inside the “egg”. There’s only one bed, a water tank and a lamp inside the house.

“I feel good living here though it’s simple, and a bit cold sometimes, what important for me, is – it saves me a lot of money!” Dai told a reporter.

The Manifold Clock is a wall-mounted clock with a manifold that connects the hour and minute hands to create three dimensional movement.

The Magic Carp-Pet

A concept rug designed by ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects that is probably the most awesome carp rug with an embedded moire effect I’ve ever seen.

When the rug is viewed through the specially designed glass coffee table, an animation of carp appears through a moire effect providing a surprise element of natural liveliness to the interior. The graphic apparition, replacing the traditional fish tank, is also a nod to the decreasing abundance of our most precious natural resource – water. Mythologically, the carp symbolizes bravery and fortune. Linguistically, the “carp” becomes a humorous extraction of the “carpet” that reveals this intriguing little conversational piece on the floor.
