If the sight of the Pac-Man ghosts doesn’t get your heart rate going ever so slightly, then maybe the music will? It makes my pulse race and my hands get into arcade grip just thinking about it. While we can’t all have the arcade game in our house, perhaps a sophisticated yet cheeky nod to it will do? Designer Chicco Chiari bypassed plastic and any other material you’d associate anything in the 80s with and went straight to Carrara marble when creating this collection of playful ghost lamps called Fantasmini.

Micro Matter, an A’ Design award winning project by Rosa de Jong, is meant to transport you into new worlds, all wrapped in a tiny test tube. Inspired by how when viewing art that has space around it, another dimension is created that can feel a bit like meditation, which led Rosa to create Micro Matter.

London-based StolenForm began in 2012 by designer/maker Christian Marsden who found inspiration all around the urban environment from years of walking the city’s streets. Deciding to give things like bricks, manhole covers, and pipes new life, StolenForm turns them into sculptural pieces that also have a function. The industrial-inspired ceramics are slightly quirky, definitely eye-catching, and completely useful making them the perfect conversation piece for your home or as a gift. (via Design Milk)

Wow… What a voice. What a woman. What a song. Magic.

After so many years I discover this gem from the deluxe version of “90125”. After Yes disbanded in 1981 following their tour in support of their previous album Drama (1980), bassist Chris Squire and drummer Alan White formed the band Cinema with new guitarist and singer Trevor Rabin and former Yes keyboardist Tony Kaye. The group adopted a more commercial and pop/rock-oriented direction as the result of their new material, with much of it derived from Rabin’s demos with former Yes singer Trevor Horn as their producer. During the album’s mixing stage, former Yes singer Jon Anderson returned to record the lead vocals, which led to Cinema continuing as a reformed Yes. “It’s Over” was recorded as a Cinema song initially.
