Every passing of a half hour is marked by the knitting of a mesh, a full day is registered as one round around the clock and a year results in a 2-m-long [6' 5"] scarf. After one year they yarn has to be replaced with a new one and a new year can be knitted.
There’s been a virtual onslaught of innovative bookshelves this week, so I thought I’d do a quick recap of what I’ve seen. Colossal has not been immuneto reallygreatbookshelves.
Some clever new shelf concepts from Shay Carmon and Ben Klinger, of Israel-based Studio Ve. More info and images over at core77.
German designer Miriam Aust has devised a modular method of displaying old, unused books by creating boxed frames that scale to individual books. Extra space can be used for more storage. (via design boom)
The Trick and Cave bookshelves from Sakura Adachi. (via paul over at dudecraft who is a gentleman and a scholar)
Bookshelf/coffee table designed by Shay Alkalay. The slats serve as both bookmarks and storage, while the spines of the book form the top of the table. (via sight unseen)
Yeah I’m gunna do it. I’m linking Bed, Bath and Beyond for this pretty awesome kitchen mat. The photo doesn’t do the texture justice, it’s like a thick, slick layer of melted plastic mesh. And now back to our regularly scheduled blogging.
This 2011 calendar is a promotional piece for Harald Geisler‘s typography studio in Frankfurt. The hundreds of keyboard keys are photographed row by row to decrease lens distortion and reproduce the keys at actual size. The resulting print will be about 2′ x 3′. Learn more over at his Kickstarter page where you can pledge some money and walk away with a print or three. (via man-made)
