The Asami Light Sofa comes from Colico, a company with an important design history, founded in 1920. The first thing that comes to my mind when looking at these photos, is an unforgettable movie-marathon night with friends and a cool home theater system. The light colors can be adapted to the mood of the place and of the owner, by a simple push of a button. The sleek design and ambiance makes this a real mood setter for any evening. Just think how pimp it would be to bring a girl back to your apartment and sit down on this sofa with the red LED lights shining, it would be lights out, game over.
As promised we are bringing you part two of MTO’s adventure through Berlin. This time we give you a collection of famous movie characters throughout the city. I really enjoy the red outline he includes in his portraits, it really makes the image pop. My favorite might have to be Sidney Deane, from White Men Can’t Jump, but they are all pretty solid. The only one I’m having trouble with is the ninth one down, the guy with the big grey hair and glasses on. I’m sure once I get clued in it will click but I’m drawing a blank as of now. Big ups to MTO, as we support your tagging of Berlin, keep it going.
There have been so many times that while driving down the highway, I see all the blown out truck tires on the shoulder and think “Shit man, what the hell happens to all that rubber?”. Well, I think I might have found an answer. Mirko Siakkou-Flodin has created some amazing and breathtaking sculptures out of tires. First off, tires arent cheap, so these have to be either scraps or blown out 18 wheeler joints. If they arent, then Mirko definately is not a starving artist.
My desire as an artist working internationally is to design artwork which fits into the broader cultural context as well as the ambiance of the desired setting. Therefore, I strive to combine the site-specific natural and architectural lines with traditional and historical themes to create something both unique and representational for the piece in its setting.
If your into shredding, you know that being the camera guy is the least fun part of your day. You have to slowly ride ahead, get set up in the right spot, and film your boys killing the park, or slashing the freshy that your watering at the mouth to carve into. God forbid your boys want to do a follow along segment, you pretty much have to pray you have them in focus and in the frame, because looking at the camera, the mountain, and other riders never really works out too well, until now.
The 355 Camera Snow Goggle is part of the new Summit Series of ski masks with integrated cameras. The hands-free snapper has a 5-megapixel image sensor that’s also capable of recording 720×480-pixel videos with audio. Controls are laid out on the right side of the snow goggles and are large to facilitate users wearing gloves. The eyewear has 16MB of internal memory which can be expanded via the microSD/SDHC card slot.
The 335 Snow Camera Goggle has an estimated retail price of $149 and should be showing up in June.
This winter has been brutal. Im not talking, just kind of cold, and a little windy. Im talking you can only walk a few blocks before you have to dip into the local mini mart and pretend to be looking for something while you warm up. Until this year, Ive never been into rocking a scarf, but now I cant see myself without it. Its truely been a life saver to my new mode of transportation, walking, everywhere. These are some awesome scarf designs, and Im sure Ill be adding one or two to my collection.
It is unbelievable how some people can take such a plain known object and create interesting art with it. In this case, nails. By warping, and placing each nail in certain landscapes, the image created paints a picture for the viewer. You actually start to see the nails not as actual nails, but as regular people showing emotion as if they were human. I would have liked a scene showing a big hammer coming through town like Godzilla and all the nails running for their lives, but I guess my brain is just more advanced that the normal human.
Now I’m sure everyone has their own favorite cartoon chick, and the drunken arguments can go on forever on who is the hottest cartoon. So we decided to put together the top 15 cartoon babes of all time. Now of course, looks alone count for about 80% of the points, but their actions and special abilities also played a big role in our judging format. So without further ado, the top 15 hottest cartoons.
15. Betty Boop
Now to be honest with you I didn’t even want to put this block head on the list, but I had to give some respect. Betty Boop was the first female cartoon to show a little skin and to pretty much prance around like a slut, which is cool. The only problem I have with that, is that she has a toaster shaped head with an Alfalfa type hair doo. Regardless, you have to give credit to the Boop for paving the way for the rest of the girls on the list.
14. Lola Bunny (Space Jam)
O.K. I know what your thinking, “Box Head and a Rabbit to start off the list, terrible.” Just hold on one second though. Lola Bunny was a dope chick. Not only did she have a ridiculous body, as shown above, she was able to hang with Michael Jordan and aliens in a basketball game. So before you think this is some kind of beastality fetish, recognize the hotness of Lola Bunny, O.K. nevermind I’m just going stop there before I get in trouble, Lola Bunny was hot though.
What an amazing campaign from an Italian chocolate brand named Zaini which wants here to promote one of its chocolates: Kofli. These hilarious prints have been created at Leo Burnett. This hit home because my eyes look pretty identical every single morning.
Some young artists came up with the idea to capture many frames from popular Youtube videos and draw them on handmade paper with color pencils. Each drawing is like a frozen Youtube frame with video title, user ratings and number of views. They have drawn everything from the dramatic chipmunk to intoxicated David Hasselhoff, and you can buy one for $ 500-600.
I have always been interested in secret societies, especially the Skull and Bones Society. A rather intriguing lot will be up for auction at Christie’s later this month. An 1872 skull ballot box from Yale University’s mysterious Skull and Bones society will be sold as part of Christie’s New York’s Important American Furniture, Folk Art, Silver & Chinese Export sale on January 22. The skull has a hinge on top and is surrounded by charred-looking crossbones one inscribed with the word Thor. Skull and Bones was founded in 1832 and has been the subject of many works of history and fiction. Many notable Yalies including both Bush presidents have been members. The lot includes a black book with names and photographs of earlier members and is estimated at $10,000 to $20,000.
