Tauba Auerbach (previously) partnered with Printed Matter to publish the project [2,3], a large-scale book that exists between a children’s pop-up and sculptural object. The project folds neatly into its own custom sleeve, and contains six separate paper sculptures that spring to life when opened. Director Sam Fleischner filmed the project’s unboxing, catching the sweetly satisfying sounds of the books creaking to open, and the objects inside slowing falling into place. You can see more of Auerbach’s designs on Instagram. (via Juxtapoz)
Despite the visual beauty and life-giving nature of plants, there’s always been one main problem with our vegetative friends: plants can’t fly. A small company called Hoshinchu based out of Kyushu, Japan, recently set out to fix the problem that evolution forgot by inventing the Air Bonsai, a system for magnetically levitating small bonsai trees several inches above a small electrified pedestal. The system allows you to create your own miniature Avatar-like worlds with tiny trees or shrubs planted in balls of moss, but is also powerful enough to suspend special ceramic dishes of fragments of lava rock.
Air Bonsai is currently funding like crazy on Kickstarter and is availble in a number of configurations starting with a base DIY kit for $200 that requires you to use your own plants up to more elaborate designs that may only ship in Japan. (via Spoon & Tamago).
I put this one on my birthday list 🙂

I am almost dying in my office and I am trying to kill my time so..I am surfing on the web and I came across with this article “The 12 coolest offices in the world” in Bored Panda. To be honest after reading and mainly watching that stuff I feel like jumping from my window 😄
It is real pity the lack of interest in many companies to provide a pleasant atmosphere to employees, money is a constant excuse but with a bit of money and a good taste it could be a clear changing point.

Color can cause a massive change in our feelings (check this article) and this is highly used in marketing to push the sale, so if we have this data maybe we should be able to use it in our benefit 😉

Small changes like this one will bring a massive improvement in everybody perception, and of course their / our performance will go up!
The only problem is if you are colorblind 😛

As the stars can be united to show us magnificent constellations, this video brings the beauty of the complex simplicity in some points and lines.
Because there is nothing much complicated as finding the perfect balance on “less is more”.
To understand how our modern notions of beauty arose in relation to the prevailing ideas and accounts of beauty we have to start with the Greeks.
From this perspective, perhaps the quandary that most immediately presents itself concerning the nature of beauty is the apparent variety of forms that it takes across different times and places.
This is evident in relation to the human form, the ideals for which may vary even in a relatively short period of time.
They clearly indicated that a human mind should be surrounded by beauty to have a better life.
We must agree and join it.
