Meow Parlour…

…for the little purrs.  Sonya Lee Architect designed NYC’s first cat cafe, Meow Parlour.  Here,  humans can enjoy a cup of joe while being reminded to play.  The kitties roam freely, while awaiting adoption.

The success of the space has led to nearly 100 adoptions, supported by their nonprofit, Kitty Kind, while embracing the idea that good design can shape how we interact with each other and animals.  Here, kitty, kitty!…

Float Away…

…I have been nursing a sore muscle in my back for the past few days.  I happened upon, (thank you, Trendland,)  Float by Unnur Valdis and wished I could try to heal my aching back in the geothermal pools in magical Iceland…with Float gear in hand, of course…

Most hot springs are artificially constructed — many to marvelous results — altering the local scenery. But Iceland’s geothermal pools use the natural landscape as the experience’s foundation. Here, pools are larger, and unlike their counterparts in Japan, they’re ideal for floating your entire body.

With that in mind, Unnur Valdis dared to design an accessory that improves the bathing experience in hot water — and does so with an entirely understated and tailored approach. Float, her simple-looking swim cap, is made from Neoprene-Lycra-Polyethylene foam and designed to embrace the bathers head into total relaxation. Floating is no longer an awkward sensation overwhelming your body’s equilibrium.Valdis’ innovation is a shortcut for effortless relaxation, regardless of location. Try it at your local spring or pool (or, ideally, as an accomplice on your next trip north).

…yes, please!…

Burnished Indigo…

indigo is my favorite color…when I was younger, I was a ‘blue jean baby’…but I have now become partial to wearing black.  Anyway…JamesPlumb has developed a dye process, producing an antique burnished indigo textile, which gives a stunning depth and dimension to indigo…

The project began when James Russell and Hannah Plumb of JamesPlumb found a 19th century leather sofa in a state of disrepair and wanted to find a suitable fabric to reupholster it.

brilliant…

presented at the London Design Festival 2014
