Escher would buy this game

Every since and then, I like to comment on games that stands out due to its functioning or its visual design. Monument Valley is outstanding in both fields. It works like Echochrome and its style matches those of Edge or Windosill.

You don’t want screws with a Phillips drive, a slot drive, nor any other kind of drive. What you want is this  screw with a happy face drive.

I want a Modulor shop next door

I want a Modulor shop next door

During our visit to Berlin, we went shopping to the coolest store of the Universe, named modulor. Oh, boy, looooook at the colourful rubber bands, check the figures for models… watch that paper clip… and what about the bolt…

A book… in your face!

A book… in your face!

Un libro de narices (a pun that means both ‘A nose book’ and ‘A great book’) has been designed by Yeray Pérez and illustrated by Ángel Palomo. They are looking for a publisher for this gem.

A brilliant video

A brilliant video

Michael Langan produced this video without any computer-generated graphics. It has been made, the lighting at least, with mere and sheer torches. He recorded the lights on several takes and overlay them afterwards. I have not found any images from behind the scenes, but I can imagine a whole bunch of guys, or maybe just one, holding a fishing rod tied to a torch and running around.

A pullover = a pair of mitts

A pullover = a pair of mitts

One of these ideas that one never knows when they will become handy, but should be kept on the top drawer…

Beep beep, open fly!

Beep beep, open fly!

One of the most important issues in trousers finally has a solution. It is one of the craziest ideas from  Dominic Wilcox’s book. All it needs now is a crazy manufacturer and many crazy buyers.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

We took the pictures ourselves, apart from the bird’s eye view, the panoramic view and the information center below.
Walking around Berlin, our friend Víctor led us to this place: a 19,000 sq m surface covered by 2,711 concrete slabs in a variety of heights. It’s some kind of gloomy and slightly smothering labyrinth, which was nonetheless composed by lines so pure that it even seems beautiful and relaxing. You can find here its website and here are some images as well as the map of the information centre it holds beneath.

Caress the ivy for it to sing

Caress the ivy for it to sing

Akousmaflore is a funny interactive installation. Its plants capture our electrostatic energy when touched and their reaction transforms into their very own sound. Maybe one of Cordova’s patios dare to place this wonder among its geranium plant pots for this year’s patio festival. Just picture the green choir it could create…

Playing with vegetables isn’a just a kiddo thing!

Playing with vegetables isn’a just a kiddo thing!

Whenever I see the Karoto carrot sharpener and the  Cucumbo-spiral slicer, I find amusing how adults need to play with vegetables to make it more appealing. Both objects have been designed by Avichai Tadmor.

Such a handy brand

How nice and fun it is to find out the graphics developped for 2147 Mans, an organic food cooperative and social company. It is ever so much surrealistic and human!

A speaker for every taste

A speaker for every taste

We wanted to check whether a speaker could be mounted on whatever and…  just look at what we’ve found: the audioJar by Sarah Peace, a minimalist version by Rolf Julius, a set of them made from pipes by ikymagoo, Floyd ‘s cases and  transparent speakers from People People studio.
