A couple days ago I linked to this Time is Money clock over at Atypyk. Today I noticed they have a bunch of new stuff in stock and after clicking through it I had a huge smile on my face. The upside down flaming car candle alone is a must-have for the general population of Earth I think (their description, not mine: Have fun! Set cars on fire (french tradition). Made in France.)
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.
Nostalgia has come a long way. The Tape Lamp designed by Denis Krylov and Andrei Hakhovich out of San Francisco is a minimalist cube of plexiglass with laser cut slots containing 100 cassette tapes. The tapes are real and can be wound left or right to customize the look of the lamp. Now for sale via Etsy. (via dornob)
