I. Just. Love. This. A bedroom in a bookcase!
I want to build one just like it.
This bookcase/igloo/bedroom is called Uroko House. Graphic designer Paul Baron kindly shared these in-progress photos on Flickr. The Uroko House was designed by Point Architects in Tokyo. Paul and friends renovated their Tokyo flat, and this awesome design was part of the renovation. Good on ya, it looks great!

Students at the University of Technology in Sydney collaborated with architect Chris Bosse to create this digital origami exhibit using 3,500 recycled cardboard “molecules.”
Why digital? Students in the digital architecture program freely explored Cartesian space [Euclidean space described by Cartesian coordinates] using just two distinct shapes - there really are only two different shaped cardboard pieces used in the entire display. I believe the pieces were designed using a CAD system, though the exhibit brochure is vague on this point.
The walkthrough installation included rooms full of these geometric paper shapes stacked on top of each other and pasted on walls and ceilings.

Young Miss Emily Morris [she has a MySpace page] just graduated art school and is already creating stunning larger-than-life paper cut art pieces. The piece pictured, titled Mister Charlsworth, has led to commissions for more of her intricate laser cuts.
I graduated this summer from Leeds college of art and design, england. A attained a BA (first class) degree in printed textiles and surface pattern design. My collection ‘Mister Charlesworth’ consists of laser cut paper panels featuring imagery of bugs and insects which are transformed into intricate lace-like cut paper designs.
This summer I exhibited the collection at “New Designers”, London which resulted in a commissioned piece of work for Chiltern St Studio, London. I produced a series of laser cut paper panels for a window display in the studio. I have also been approached by a boutique in Belfast, Ireland who are interested in showing my work in their store.
Good one Emily, and good luck with your beautiful paper art!

How do you turn an ordinary wall into a piano?
There are two microphones attached on the wall surface. Those microphones are acting like human ears for the computer which is able to “hear” as people tap/bang on the wall. The program translates those hits into piano keys. It all depends on how hard you hit the wall. The lower key will be produced when you hit it harder and the higher key will be produced when you hit it softer. Just like every other modern piano, it has 88 keys.
You have to see the video - it’s pretty cool

Man, I love this… an edible chess set from UK designer Biggles. Checkmate - I ate your Queen… There’s not much to say here - the picture pretty much says it all - brass biscuit cutters shaped like board squares and chess pieces.

I tried making this little paper flower card myself, but if you look closely in the photos, the colored part of the card, which are the petals of the flower, is printed on both sides of the sheet. I recreated the design in illustrator and seemd to have cut and folded it correctly, but scratched my head until I figured out why my petals weren’t as pretty as the ones in the photo. I wasn’t printing on both sides. A cute project for a romantic card. Valentine’s Day is coming up. Maybe the little flap could be a green petal? I love the illustration of the woman receiving the card.
