Wallsuit: Dressing Your Space

I love this concept and its realization that varies for each individual. Nikola Saric dresses spaces, much as a suit clothes us in our very own personal style. Particularly he dresses the walls which define the boundaries of rooms. Wallsuit attempts to redefine your lifestyle by crafting your personal story for your home. Continue reading


Gridy me mirror: traditional mirrors in unconventional uses


Here is a very interesting approach to a daily use object since centuries, the mirror. The mirror, also known as that object with which one spends some of his / her most personal moments, making sure everything is in best condition on their face. I have the impression though, that the designers behind “Me me me” mirror were aiming at giving this traditional object a wider use. Why not use it as a decorative object around your home, making sure it reflects but the prettiest views, while bringing in a little more light? Its simple and elegant appearance allows it after all.

Galileo Telescope: A beautiful sight


The award-winning Galileo Telescope is a renovation of the exact telescope used by Mr Galilei to spot the phases of Venus, or Jupiter’s lesser-known moons. The tube is not only faithful to the exact length and focal distance used by Galileo, but also to the 17th Century material of choice – birch wood. The only differences are the use of modern optical lenses to optimize your view of the planets. The mechanics and stand are also made in metal, finished in white, which makes a lovely complement to the pale wood (and will match your Apple accessories). This telescope looks very different from most of the bulky black equipment on the market, but doesn’t scrimp on performance. Continue reading
