Recycled rubber stool


H220430 Design has released a collection called “Opportunity” which is on display now in Tokyo for DesignTide Tokyo 2010. Opportunity is a collection of lighting and furniture that explores the idea of design as an opportunity to make people consider and act on global problems both environmental and social. “What we aimed for this time is neither functional design nor design for marketing, but design to produce an “opportunity.”

Get into my modern bed

Platform+bed I never appreciated my BB days (Before Baby) -- the days when I could stay in bed all day.

How glorious it sounds to simply camp out in bed -- grab your computer, iPod, and super-sized latte and be an island.

See my modern island for one (or two)

Ridiculous Open-Concept Luxury Loft in SoHo



Every couple months I’ll spend a night sifting through luxury properties for sale in New York City. It’s the only place in the world where you can easily find 50+ listings ranging from $5 million - $75 million at any given time. Understanding the density of Manhattan, it’s always fascinating how expensive a square foot can cost.
Most of the luxury units available are jaw-dropping condos or tall/skinny townhouses; many are conversions from old factories of the past.
Last night I came across a unit for sale in the prestigious New Museum Building, located on 158 Mercer Street in SoHo. Listed at $6.95 Million USD, it was the open-concept living space that really caught my attention. A 2,800 square foot “room” that serves as a kitchen, office, den, dining and living room. Absolutely incredible!
