I love this series of planters by Joe Paine. I certainly have enough plants for these!

Wholeo dome

“Completed in 1974, Wholeo Dome is a 14-foot-in-diameter, 7-foot-tall geodesic dome covered with curved, stained glass panels.  In 2004, after having been kept in storage for more than twenty years, Wholeo Dome is installed at The Farm School in Summertown, TN, USA.”

Amazing. You can navigate their site for more info and photos.

Colour by Daniel Rybakken and Andreas Engesvik

I love this idea- interchangeable screens in front of an opaque disk and round fluorescent lamp.  So lovely for a loft or large airy space.  Look here for more photos.

Tham & Videg?rd Architecture: Tree hotel

Practically invisible amongst the trees, this brilliant and beautiful tree house is a concept thought up by Tham & Videg?rd Architecture.  It would be so fun to spend a night up there, don’t you think?

Ana Kraš

These lamps and shades are so beautiful.  They look like so much fun that I am dabbling with the idea of making my own…

String Gardens

This site may be the most inspiring thing I’ve seen this week.  Yes, I know it’s only Tuesday.  Regardless, these are awesome.   Trying to figure out how I can make my own and have it stay together without the use of copious amounts of peat moss…

J 1 Studio

“The concept was to create furniture for modern nomadic culture. It is easy to setup and pack flat for space saving transportation. The first approach was to get rid of screws. This also gets rid of the tools in assembling the furniture.  T.SHELF uses cable and zipties to tie every triangle into one piece of furniture/sculpture and functions as displaying books, magazines, plants, pictures, or anything you want to display.”

I love that these can so easily be transformed into sculpture and/or functional object.  I especially love the T Shelf and the M Stool.  The use of zip-ties may seem a bit declassé, but if you want to change things around easily, they’re kinda perfect.
