The Field Hammock

Posted on | July 13, 2014

Crave for the feeling of nature? I LOVE my Mexican hammock. But this piece of art has just become some serious competition for my piece of memory from my expatriate time in Mexico City. Seen at the Milan Design Week, this hammock combines the slow movements of a hammock with the relax feeling of lying in the fields. It blends the notion of nature and artificial, inside and outside.

The vendor tells me that it is water- and UV ray-resistant. It’s made of multicolored grass-like synthetic polyamide pile fabric. And it feels like lying on natural grass. A nice piece of ‘don’t need it but it’s so pretty I really want it’.

The love box

Posted on | February 20, 2014

This year Valentine’s Day was somehow special in Paris. It wasn’t just for those to celebrate who connect the day with romantic love; couples, lovers, people who are fond of someone. It offered very fast support to those who fell in love with someone at first sight. Which can practically happen on every street corner in Paris – as we know. The Flower Council Holland distributed 1500 ‘In Case of Love’ emergency cases carrying a beautiful red rose throughout Paris in crowded, and well-known romantic areas. “In case you meet your love at first sight, it’s easy to make it known. Just break the glass and take the flower. The only thing you have to do yourself is to declare your love.” Cute.

Posted on | February 15, 2014

A revolutionary event took place this evening in Vienna’s new district to be, called Seestadt Aspern. In 2028, 20.000 citizens will have found a new home only a half an hour subway ride away from Vienna’s St. Stephan’s dome. On the largest construction site in Austria, 43 cranes performed on a former airfield of 21 hectares what the organizers called the largest crane ballet on earth. The music was specially composed for the show tonight, Symphony sounds combined with electro tunes accompanied the 20-minute choreography.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Temporary forms of sand crafting

Posted on | January 30, 2014

Citizens of San Francisco, California might have come across the art of Andres Amador already. Andres doesn’t paint or sculpt, he prefers a medium that is temporary but absolutely beautiful: a sandy beach at low tide.

He spends hours creating these intricate masterpieces, knowing that the tide will soon come in and wash away his work forever.
