The new Victorinox Tomo, designed by Abitax of Japan, is a departure from the standard oblong and rounded corner silhouette of the standard Swiss Army knife. A little less conspicuous because of the orthogonal shape, it would go along in any pocket or clipped on a keychain almost without anyone noticing.
Living in 400 square feet, I’m all for space saving accessories. The Universal Vertical Filing Rack by Westerville is just that – a clever, simple way to store and organize all of that paper that accumulates over time.
We just started watching Azorian: The Raising of The K-129 on Netflix instant. I had read about the CIA’s project before, but this documentary is bananas! It’s like Hunt for Red October but for real – stealing a Russian ballistic missle sub without the Russians knowing about it. I love the 3d models and animations of how the Glomar Explorer and Capture Vehicle. If you don’t know anything about the story, go watch the film!
Claire Cole’s couture embroidered wallpapers are works of art in and of themselves (my favorite is the Paris wallpaper). Fragments of hand-sourced vintage wallpapers are layered and intricately embroidered with silks and leather to create a range of patterns and scenes. Awesome!
Whoah. Dead Island trailer is a mix of JJ Abrams and zombies. Can’t wait to see what the actual game is like, hopefully more than just axing zombies to bits.
The Vilhelmsro Primary School, by BIG Architects, is such a beautiful project. Located in Asminderoed, Denmark, the project is still in the design development phase, and features a series of undulating strips that create a dynamic topography. Light filters into the buildings through the exposed peaks in each strip, and green roofs on each strip integrate the building into the landscape. I can’t wait until this is actually a built work.
