Lady Gaga’s Flying Dress

Created for Lady Gaga, the Volantis is the world’s first flying dress and heralds the beginning of a new era for human flight, says one of its designers Benjamin Males.

It made me laugh.

Giant Bubbles

This must be the most wonderfully zen and magical video on YouTube. Thanks to my studiomate Albert Lee for pointing me to it.

Habit List

Habit List

I have been trying to change up my daily routines a bit and form new habits. So, when Jessica told me about Habit List last night I made sure to download it asap. It looks just like the app I’ve been waiting for to help me stay focused and on track with my new daily goals. It’s the little things that make a big difference, isn’t it?

Pibal Bicycle

Pibal

A bicycle crossed with a scooter? Yes, please! It’s a brainchild of Philippe Starck and car company Peugeot. It’s only a prototype for now, but I sure do hope it will go into production!

Best Drying Rack

While I find it quite bold that they called their drying rack the Best Drying Rack. I admit I am intrigued by its shape.

Invisible Tattly

Invisible Tattly

We *just* launched our very first Invisible Tattly in collaboration with Mario the Magician.

It feels good to innovate.

What a beautiful bottle opener this is! Wow! How perfect when a mundane object like a bottle opener has such decorative and sculptural qualities.

Oh my! The 22nd Field Notes Colors seasonal release is made of wood! The “Shelterwood” edition features covers made from actual American Cherry wood. The fine folks behind Field Notes never cease to amaze. Watch the making off video here.

Hat tip to Jim Coudal and team!

Luckey Climbers

Luckey Climbers

A Luckey Climber is a three dimensional sculpture designed for children to climb on.

Made of bent plywood platforms that are suspended by steel pipes and cables, climbers are visually elegant works of art that are also part jungle gym and once alive with children they become what Thomas Luckey called “fountains of children.“

Absolutely love this.

(Also, made me think of this episode…)

Bookman Cup Holder

This Swedish Bike Cup Holder made me look: Open the spring by pressing the rings together, place it on the handlebar and let go. The cup holder clamps down on the handlebars and sits firmly in place never losing grip even during rides over bumps and potholes.

Charity Ball

Ethan King is an inspiring 14 year old. At 10 he started Charity Ball to execute his vision of giving away soccer balls to kids in need. He has since given 4,000+ balls away. Humbling.

Solur Tennis Trainer

Solur Tennis Trainer

IKEA is helping my Tennis withrawals with this Solur Tennis Trainer. I can hit the ball alone, one some big open space, no wall or partner needed. Yes!

Caps

Caps

This post is yet another perfect example why I love Melissa Easton’s blog. Who else would ask themselves “How many caps does a single household possess?

Haibara Letter Sets

Haibara Letter Sets

How stunning is this letter writing set by HAIBARA? The coloured rims are done by woodblock prints on washi papers. Also comes in light blue. Totally wishlisting this one.

Made In The Future

Made in the Future is an effort to capture IDEO’s musings about what a not-so-distant tomorrow might look like. They broke their findings into five themes: Meaning Economy, Outer Skills, Making Exchanges, Raw Systems and New Matter.

Some fascinating food for thought.

Abandoned Desert Movie Theater

This abandoned outdoor movie theater in the desert of Sinai made me look. All I can think is: Can we have a CreativeMornings there?

Cork Globe

Cork Globe

CreativeMornings HQ totally needs one of these Cork Globes so we can keep track of our growing chapters. (We are currently at 71, growing by 3-5 chapters a month)

Mega Desk

Endless Desk Barbarian Group

Woah, the Barbarian Group has one giant endless table that everyone works from. It offers work spaces for 175 people. Stunning.

Here’s a video that shows the entire desk.
