اینا بیکار نیستنااااااا
از خیلی از کارایی که ما میکنیم هنرمندانه تر و بهتره لا اقل.
فکر نکنین حتما باید یه کار خیلی خاص کنین تا بگین هنرمندین و یا کارتون کار هنریه. همین که ذوق رو قاتی کار روزمره تون کنین، خودش یه جور هنره.
Our world has become so fast-paced these days. Most of the daily activities we used to engage in now have shortened versions, abbreviations of their former selves that save us time but disconnect us from the actual activities. One artist is getting back to a slower type of life by engaging in one of the most painstaking, slowest types of art he could find: miniature pencil carvings.
Dalton Ghetti is a carpenter by trade, but he has loved carving since he was a small child. He began with tree bark and experimented with plenty of materials before finally settling on pencils. The graphite is easy to work with since it has no grain, but it allows for a large measure of interest for the artist due to its small size and delicate nature.
Ghetti’s intricate carvings can take him weeks, months or even years to complete. But the artist is not worried about how many moments of his life that he spends sharpening pencils. These moments are almost like meditation for the man who takes life a little more slowly than the rest of us.
The tiny and detailed carvings are created without the benefit of a magnifying glass. Ghetti uses sewing needles, razor blades and No. 2 or carpenter’s pencils to slowly carve out intricate shapes and scenes.
Originally from Brazil but now residing in Connecticut, Dalton Ghetti uses his training as an architect and carpenter to inform his artistic process. While he does sometimes slip up and break a pencil, even these “failures” are beautiful to look at.
Although there is plenty of interest in Ghetti’s carvings, he does not sell his pencil art. Fans do have a chance to own a bit of his work as he sells posters and postcards of his completed pieces, but don’t expect him to autograph your poster with the pen you have in your pocket; he is so dedicated to his material that he insists on signing his name in pencil.
پله یکی از چیزهایی که در زمانه مدرن (منظورم چهارصد پونصدسال اخیره) خیلی مورد توجه معمارها و طراح ها قرار گرفته. نمی دونم چی در پله هست اما معمولا در کتب هنر این رو به وجود حرکت در پله و توجه جریان مدرن به حرکت و … نسبت می دن که به زعم من نوعی خودبزرگ بینی عالی جنابان مدرنه!!! :) به هر تقدیر مجموعه ابداعات این عصر و توانایی های تکنولوژیک و ساخت امروزه ما رو به جایی رسونده که خیلی ابتکارات سر این موجود بیچاره درمیاریم.
مجموعه ای از چندین پله مدرن و پسامدرن در معماری عصر اخیر.
دیگه نبینم تو طرح هاتون از پله های ساده استفاده کنینا!!!
Italian company 14 Ora Italiana has a collection of wood grain porcelain tiles that were inspired by the works of Andy Warhol. The Uonuon line comes in fourteen colors that are featured on this colorful and fun staircase.

These stairs belong in House G by Maxwan Architects + Urbanists, in which a barn received a complete makeover. The planes of the stairs become a part of the wall shelves in a unique setup for book storage as well as kitchen storage.
The Grove Park project from Bell Phillips Architects features a staircase that is “created from a complex geometry of folded triangular facets which appear to float effortlessly within the space.” [via Plastolux]

These stairs that lead to a loft bedroom are by nC2 architecture in Brooklyn, NY. They incorporate extra shelving with the use of alternate treads and are the ultimate in being spatially efficient.

Architecture firm Atelier SAD created another amazing alternate tread staircase that doubles as a bookshelf.
Yet another amazing staircase/bookshelf combo. This one is from Kathryn Tyler of Linea Studio’s own Scandinavian-inspired home. The Corkellis House does away with upper level kitchen cabinets and instead uses open shelving, as well as the staircase shelves, to house all of the kitchen-related items.

The eco-friendly Blue House, designed by architect Pieter Weijnen of Faro Architecten, features modern nautical touches throughout. The architect built the house for his family on Steigereiland, one of Amsterdam’s artificial islands, and the stairs appear to float in the air without support. Steel cables are placed on the sides for safety.

Located in what is known as the Godzilla House by Chae-Pereira Architects in Seoul, Korea, these suspended stairs float along a curved wall and are lit by the hidden windows above.
This loft duplex designed by architect Charlie Diaz in downtown Madrid, Spain, features an unusual staircase that is the ultimate example of space saving.
These unusually deep stairs, and the 4-stories of house surrounding them, come with the rather large price tag of$38 million. The iconic NYC property, designed by Paul Rudolph, has seen many a famous person inside including Halston and Gunter Sachs, who were both previous owners.
This small, uniquely shaped house calls for a small, uniquely shaped staircase and that’s just what Kyoto-basedAlphaville Architects designed.
Designed by Castroferro Arquitectos, these extra-wide stone stairs with wood treads on top match the floating wood stairs above, all with enough room to store books on the sides.
From MO Architekten, concrete stairs with cord crisscrossing to form the sides of the railing — yes please! Just think of all the fun colors you could string when you get bored with this one. [via Plastolux]
While not walkable, this piece of fabric architecture by artist Do Ho Suh is a 1:1 replica of the staircase that connects his apartment to his landlord’s. The piece is entitled Staircase III and it is displayed at the Tate Modernin London.
Talk about maximizing every inch of space! These bookshelf stairs are some of the coolest we’ve seen.
You can’t write a post about stairs and not include the Trippy Stairs that we featured last year. They are certainly some of the most unique stairs we’ve ever seen and most definitely, well, trippy.
And last, but certainly not least, are these spiral wood stairs that are just as sculptural as they are functional. Definitely one of our favorites.

During the day, these 14 furniture and home decor items like lounge chairs, sideboards, bathroom countertops, tiles and wallpaper look fairly ordinary (though beautifully designed). But when the lights go out, they reveal their versatility, lighting up with built-in LED lights or glowing from within.

Not only does this gorgeous sideboard feature a stunning digital image of the moon over three-quarters of its surfaces, but it was also treated with glow-in-the-dark paint and ecologically friendly dark blue paint to create a heavenly effect at night. The sideboard was designed by Sotirios Papadopaulos for ENNEZERO and displayed in Milan in 2008.

Rounded wooden furniture that can act as ottomans, stools or coffee tables, ‘Bright Woods‘ from Gruppo Avanzini includes stripes of various types of wood in between glow-in-the-dark resin.

Why install extra lighting in your garden when your potted plants could glow? These pot lights from Rotoluxe come in various shapes and sizes including printed varieties, and include lighting elements that shine from within their transparent bodies.

The soft illumination given off by these glowing countertops makes night lights in the bathroom a thing of the past. Italian company Masto Fiore hand-crafts these beautiful countertops from natural alabaster stone with integrated illumination. Pair them with translucent glass sink vessels and you’ve got quite a magical effect.

It’s wallpaper that lights up! Designed by Jonas Samson, this light-emitting wallpaper is unfortunately just a prototype and not for sale, but it’s an intriguing concept.

By day, the Lagoon daybed by Solpuri is a comfortable and very chic place to relax, accommodating two and offering a removable shade. By night, the translucent base of the lounger lights up from inside.

Designer Kathy Schicker calls our attention to something we never realized that we needed: glow-in-the-dark textiles. Offering a range of prints, Schicker’s collection looks like ordinary fabric during the day but starts to glow when the lights go out.

Furniture maker Vondom offers up yet another futuristic glow-in-the-dark offering in the form of a lighted outdoor bar. The Fiesta bar comes in curved and straight sections so you can adjust it to the size and shape you want, and is fitted with LED lights in your choice of colors.

The unusual rounded shapes of this garden collection by Plust are enough to make it stand out, living up to its name ‘Gumball’ with candy-bright colors. But what sets this collection apart even more is – you guessed it – the capability to glow in the dark.

Inhabitat likened this unusual furniture line to ‘ a collection of homemade marshmallows’, and it’s easy to see why. The chairs and couches of the Via Lattea collection, designed by Mario Bellini for Meritalia, are made of steel mesh covered with recycled fiber sacks that were once used to transport grain, stones and sugar. The sacs are filled with air and include LED lights

An Italian company specializing in photoluminescence has produced these incredible glowing tiles, which can be used to create a bathtub as pictured, an artistic mosaic or even to cover entire surfaces like floors and wall tiles. When the lights go out, the photoluminescence materials glow in a range of colors.

Who doesn’t love a good dual-purpose piece of furniture? Vondom offers another modern outdoor lounge chair that is beautiful enough during the day, but turns into a lantern of sorts when the sun sets. The materials used to make it are 100% recyclable, and they can withstand extreme weather conditions, making it a durable and eco-friendly choice.

Patio furniture doesn’t get much more inviting – in a space-age sort of way – than this. Shaped like comfy pillows, this collection designed by Stefano Giovannoni for Vondom is made of the same material as the lantern/lounge chair and comes in a range of shapes including bucket-like side tables that make perfect coolers.

Throw them in the pool, toss them on the lawn or just position them through your house. The Aqua Globo by Slide Design looks equally cool indoors and out, providing visual interest and a soft glow

این طرح می تونه بهتر از این باشه که بطری از بالا و دقیقا بدون زاویه پر بشه. هم انرژی آدم در موقع استفاده کمتر مصرف می شه و هم در موقع پر کردن بطری نیاز به کج کردن و جور دیگر گرفتن اون نیست.
What will happen if we shift the mouth of the bottle from the top to a 45-degree angle? You may not be able to fill it to the brim, and drinking from it may be a bit weird, but filling the bottle from a water cooler or fountain will surely become easy. This simple placement difference can do a heck lot for the packaging design and I think it’s radical and awesome.

یکی از بناهای جدیدی که به عنوان مصداق کاربری امروزی گرههای اسلامی در بحث از راز گرههای اسلامی مطرح شد ساختمان برج دوحه در قطر بود که توسط ژان نوول معمار مشهور فرانسوی طراحی شده است. ژان نوول که پیشتر هم با طرحی مبدعانه برای مرکز فرهنگی اعراب سابقهی ذهنی خوبی برای آنها به جا گذاشته بود، این بار نیز با ارائه برخورد متفاوتی با شبکههای الگوهای هندسی اسلامی و تداخل هوشمندانه آنها با هم به صورت یک پوستهی جدا بر روی بدنه برج توانسته است آفتاب داغ قطر را در بخشهای لازم از بنا تا حد زیادی مهار کند و در بخشهای شمالی آن نورگیری بیشتری داشته باشد.
فرم نرم و منحنی برج اگر چه در افق بلندمرتبه دوحه در کناره خلیج فارس گم است اما به دلیل تفاوت هندسه آن و نورپردازی متفاوت به خوبی شاخص میشود. سرزمینهای اعراب حاشیه خلیج فارس در دو دهه اخیر بهترین محمل برای به ظهور نشستن ایدههای گران معماران اروپایی بودهاست. به دلیل پول بدون صاحبی که معطل افتاده و به دلیل سوداهای دیده شدن و استکبارطلبی ذاتی اعراب خلیج....
