This Nesting Shelf made me look.
Luna is an artistic lamp design inspired by the Moon, available in a range of seven sizes from the XXS 3.2 inch model to the XXL 23.6 version. Stunning.

I get very excited when furniture is multi functional: The Flop chair looks comfortable and spacious, and it can be easily turned into a functional twin bed. And as a bonus feature, all the guest bed paraphernalia (pillows, comforters, and sheets) can be stored right inside the chair. So good!
On a dry lakebed in Nevada, a group of friends build the first scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits: a true illustration of our place in the universe. Stunning.
Yes, I totally want this geodesic dome (Garden Igloo) for my backyard. What the heck, it would even be cool as a conference room in our office.
I had the pleasure to meet one of the co-founders of Splacer, a service that helps you find event space for a party, off-site, photo shot etc. As someone who is and has been putting on events in NYC for years, I know how hard it can be to find the perfect venue. Splacer is an absolute delight to browse. I was told they are just about to come out with a new and imroved website but I am already impressed with what I am seeing. If you know someone that has an event space here in NYC (or in Tel Aviv) tell them to sign up. It doesn’t cost anything to sign up and you’d just give Splacer a cut of your rental fee. They will be soon expanding to other cities.
See for yourself: Splacer.

quip was born from the idea that good design is the key to making oral care more simple, honest and accessible. The path to improving oral health lies in making basic daily habit changes, not in over-complicated, expensive gimmicks. By combining a thoughtfully designed, travel ready electric toothbrush with honest, expert tips and a brush head delivery service, quip makes those daily habits automated and enjoyable.

I realized quickly that not everyone is as comfortable talking about death as I am. This became especially clear once I moved to New York City.
While we don’t have to all believe in past lives, we should all be comfortable talking about death. I will make sure my kids will.
Based on a decade of research developing detailed case studies on a range of successful networks, the authors of this article have identified a common pattern of factors that are essential to effective collaboration.
– focus on mission before organization;
– manage through trust, not control;
– promote others, not yourself;
– and build constellations, not stars.

Integrity in business should be an imperative, not a nice to have.

Maria wrote a beautiful post remembering Oliver Sacks. To commemorate this irreplaceable man, she asked artist Debbie Millman to create a piece of art illustrating the passage that captures not only the heart of that heartening story, but the spirit in which Dr. Sacks inhabited and exited our world. The artwork is available as a print and I am donating all proceeds to the Oliver Sacks Foundation.
