Mini Composter, Air Freshener Not Included

Mini Composter, Air Freshener Not Included

I had to make a compost heap for school once and tho the actual experience wasn’t “fun”, the end results proved fruitful to our garden. The Jarst concept does the same thing without all the back breaking work in miniaturized form – tho it could probably be scaled up. There’s a seal drum and cap inside the pot. Thats where you put all your organic waste. In about 5-6 months time, a diaphragm opens to release your rich home made compost soil. Correct me if I’m wrong but doesn’t composting require heat and pressure?

Alien Inspiration

Alien Inspiration

In 1999, Lithuanian designer Jonas Jurgaitis was captured by aliens, upon his return to earth, he immediately began to sketch out a sofa design that he was told to pass along to us here on earth. Appearing more like dreadlocks cut from the head of The Predator, the sofa, is truly out of this world. Sure to get a second look, “Alien” the sofa, is a great contrast of molded polyurethane on a plywood frame combined with a hi-tech fabric.

Spacey Loo or Giant Smoking Pipe?

Spacey Loo or Giant Smoking Pipe?

Its name is Mrs. Hudson. Yes she has a name. The design was inspired by a modified water drop, whatever that means. I’m seeing more smoking pipe tho, but hey, it recently won a Russian bathroom design contest sponsored by Roca so it must be good. I just wonder who Mrs. Hudson is and if she knows a loo was named after her.

Hanging in Orbit

Hanging in Orbit

This pendant lamp from Lucie Koldova is dubbed Orbital Light for obvious formal reasons, but all I know is that it should have been in 2001: a Space Odyssey. The LED diodes that line the inside of the ribs cast a kind of omnidirectional glow on all nearby surfaces, giving the interior a very futuristic ambient light. The project was apparently designed for grand-scale interiors and halls, but maybe my kitchenette would also be appropriate.
