i’ve always been a huge fan of all white interiors. it’s clean, simple, and timelessly elegant. i’d make a few alterations decorating wise here and make it a little less boho chic - i.e. get rid of that long wire dipping down in the living room as well as change those awful accent pillows, bedding, and wallpaper - but apart from that i love the overall look of this apartment. simple, fresh, & inviting!

The Cloud: An Interactive Thunderstorm in Your House rain lightning lighting clouds

This Is Colossal:

multidisciplinary designer richard clarkson experiments with products, lights, and furniture in time split between his new york and new zealand studios. one of his most elegant creations is cloud, an interactive light shaped like a cumulus cloud that simulates a thunderstorm both in light and sound based on external input from either a remote control or motion sensors. from clarkson’s website:

the cloud is an interactive lamp and speaker system, designed to mimic a thundercloud in both appearance and entertainment. using motion sensors the cloud detects a user’s presence and creates a unique lightning and thunder show dictated by their movement. the system features a powerful speaker system from which the user can stream music via any bluetooth compatible device. using color-changing lights the cloud is able to adapt to the desired lighting color and brightness. the cloud also has alternative modes such as a nightlight and music reactive mode.

watch the video above to see how it works, and see the different variations in his online store. (via really sh*t!)

maleficent might own the box office, but ariel is sashaying down the runway: at london men’s fashion week, british designer bobby abley sent male models down the runway wearing outfits emblazoned with characters from disney’s the little mermaid.

abley’s line included tanks, tees and sweatshirts stamped with ariel, ursula the sea witch and other figures from the beloved 1989 cartoon. legs are required, however, for the custom skateboards that feature fotsam jetsam, and sebastian the crab.

ladies, you don’t have to feel entirely left out: abley also included a female model wearing a pair of oversize board shorts covered in lipstick prints, a nod to “kiss the girl.”

parade is an interactive art installation conceived by ceramicist laurent craste and digital agency dpt. for the chromatic festival in montreal. at first glance the piece looks rather mundane: two misshapen porcelain vases sit atop a pedestal inside a wood cube, lit from above by an industrial light. but move the light and suddenly the magic happens as the shadows projected from the vases animate to life. what a fun piece.
