Industrial designer Ignacio Pilotto has designed this concept Rubik Cube using Pantone colours.  Very cool, I’m surprised nobody has done this before…

I never knew I needed one of these little gizmo’s until I discovered it…. the potential uses for this are endless.  For instance – just in case you feel you haven’t nagged your children quite enough about doing their homework or cleaning their room, you can now drive the message home via the medium of toast.  If your house is being bugged (for reasons which are your own business), sensitive information can still be exchanged silently over breakfast, and the evidence eaten.  Have the last word in an argument… I could go on.

Designed by Sasha Tseng.  See more on her website and Coroflot profile.

This award winning traffic direction design for the Eureka Tower Carpark in Melbourne is by graphic designer Axel Peemoeller.  Simple and brilliant…. I’d love to try something like this in my house :P.  Check out more of Axel’s intriguing projects here – even his website is lots of fun to navigate!

Actually I love these 🙂

MotoArt is the brainchild of Donovan Fell III, who, inspired by his childhood fascination with aircraft, creates these amazing conversation pieces which are more like sculpture than furniture.  It all began with a pile of rusty, dented B-17 propellers he happened to intercept on the way to the scrapyard :).
