Optimist Eyewear…

…utilitary objects transformed into prismatic sculpture,  texture of materiality, and reflection and absorption of light,  transform a routine trip to the optometrist into a ‘visual’ delight.  Optical shop,  C_29 /Optimist is the ‘vision’  of Athens-based,  314 Architecture Studio.

Hey, Monkey-Face!…

…playfulness and a touch of humor in design is delightful.  Anything that can place a smile on one’s face, at a glance, is seriously charming.  Spanish designer, Jaime Hayón has designed Miko, a chimp-like faced watch, for his Orlog watch company.  Grins!

Checking In At the Office…

Jingyuan No.22 project by C+ Architecture, Beijing, transforms an old cotton warehouse into an internet company.  A fresh, light, and bright space…now promotes ideas to whirl freely and allows immediate access to communicating with co-workers.  A tension-breaking slide or a climbing-to-new-heights staircase brings out the best in everyone. There is even a convenient space to park your wheels…artistically photographed by Xia Zhi.
