Aero…

…a nice segue from my last post, Does It Float?…Los Angeles based, West of West, created an experimental surfboard; Aero. A board built around the streamlined image of speed. The classic outlines of a planing hull blend with an asymmetrical split tail. The top is minimal while the bottom is extensively contoured…

Ridges and valleys emerge from the bottoms surface, forming a new topography that reacts to speed and flow in unique ways. Aero was built for and displayed at the Architecture and Design Museum of Los Angeles…

1000th Post for cabbagerose…

…I would like to say thank you for visiting…the door is always open.  I have enjoyed getting acquainted with many of you.  Cheers!

Earlier this week I posted innovative uses for paper.  Now let’s take a look at Paper Cave Space, a stunning multi-functional device that can be used as an office, a saloon, a meeting place, a lounge or a bar.  A wildly creative design by Kotaro Horiuchi

Shhhh!!!…

studiofour has recently completed an addition to a single level Victorian house in Prahan, Australia.  The Alfred Street Residence boasts such a lovely mix of elements…natural, beautiful, and ‘quiet’…makes it easy to decompress upon entering and leave the outside world behind.  Breathe in…breathe out…

Harvest JUICERY…

…oh my goodness…and I am speaking of  yummy goodness!  I cannot tell you how many times I have held my nose while choking down freshly squeezed concoctions.  Harvest JUICERY has snuffed-out my juicing misery with delicious cold-pressed juice delights.  What is cold-pressed juice, you say? It’s juice that’s hydraulically pressed…a fancy press that does not generate any heat, keeping the temperature of the product without oxidizing; and, then pressed with thousands of pounds of pressure to extract the juice. The juice contains two to three pounds of vegetables in every bottle…

of course a cool venue is needed to ‘get the juices flowing’…by Chicago-based design firm, blochaus

the packaging is simple and honest…just like the product…

 

Krissy Sciarra, owner and chef, refers to her business as “a 21st century milkman that really does your body good.”  Harvest JUICERY delivers in the Chicago area…and, great news…they will ship out of state.  Cheers!

Let’s Go Into Town…

…I’ll be happy to say it…in my opinion, Pitsou Kedem Architect always gets it right.  Tel Aviv Townhouse 4 consists of mainly earthy and neutral tones that are expressed through both the structure and the furniture…with a pleasant dash of color.  I find this minimalist residence to be hypnotic…I want to experience every clean line…and the landscaping is simple yet magical.  This residence is situated behind a gated entrance, and is tucked between two unassuming apartment complexes…

Spectacular…

…I must admit, I’m a jaw dropper…I wear my joy and delight on my sleeve.  Below are three spectacular spaces that make my jaw hit the floor!…

Koro House

Wooden slats add a sculptural ceiling and cast shadows like a sundial across the central living room of this hexagonal home, Koro, located in Toyota, Japan, by  Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates.  The sculptural ceiling decoration is made from timber battens that line the rafters, creating an ever-changing pattern of light and shadow on the walls as the sun moves across the sky. Truly beautiful…instantly turns a home into a gallery, yes?

Dior’s Haute Couture Show

The Dior show, Paris, took place in a simple cylindrical white pavilion, located among foliage in the gardens of Musée Rodin. Designed by creative director, Raf Simons, white orchids with pink centres covered the walls. Stunning.

BIG Maze

BIG, the firm led by architect Bjarke Ingels, developed the form of this maze by combining styles of mazes throughout history, from ancient Greek labyrinths to European hedge mazes and modern American corn mazes. Brilliant! The BIG Maze opened to the public at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. on Friday and will remain in place until 1 September. It will be followed up by a wider exhibition of BIG’s work, which will open in January 2015.
