An IVAR chair that demands your attention before you sit on it

This is a fun one. It was made for a Design Fair and not something you would want to have in your house. Or maybe you do? :) ~ Jules

Materials: Ivar chair & Hellum rug

A chair that ‘demands your attention’ and getting to know it better before you can comfortably sit on it. It was on exhibition at the DMY Design Fair 2009.

Inspired by a children’s toy. The hack uses threads that run through the chair’s cut parts and cross under the rug that is glued on a PVC plastic sheet (pre bent).

Forget the conventional hotel and bunk down in a honeycomb sleeping cell

Forget the conventional hotel and bunk down in a honeycomb sleeping cell

When you’re at a week-long music festival, the last thing you want to do is stay in a regular hotel. You want to be as close as possible to all the action! That’s why there’s a new BnB on the block, calling itself B-And-Bee. Designed like honeycomb, these sleeping cells were designed by Compaan and Labeur and went on to be selected as one of 16 projects winning the CICI 2014 innovation scholarship.

They might look small from the outside, but enter this ‘honeycomb hotel’ and you’ll be treated to a king-sized bed, space for luggage, a locker, plus a light and power supply. When you’re not sleeping, the bed even folds up into a lounge seat so you can invite all your music fest friends over.

Imperial Guard

Imperial Guard

During the Q&A at my Designing for Fun talk at Valiocon this summer I promised another addition to my little appiconwars.com project “before the end of the year”.

So here’s a guy I’ve been wanting to create for a while: The Imperial Guard. I’m playing around with doing a collected print with all of these, let me know if any of you would be interested in something like that.

Shrimp Saltimbocca with Polenta

Shrimp Saltimbocca with Polenta Recipe
Saltimbocca is an Italian word that literally means “jump mouth,” presumably because of its bold flavors. The dish is traditionally made with veal and seasoned with sage and prosciutto. We love these flavors in our simple version made with shrimp. Store-bought polenta turns golden brown under the broiler for an easy accompaniment. Serve with: Sautéed green beans and red peppers.
