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)

A new ‘intelligent turntable’ that allows record collectors to play vinyl directly from their smartphone is currently in the works. It promises music fans, ‘the intimacy of vinyl with modern day convenience’ and it ‘reads vinyl with a stylus, connects to bluetooth and wi-fi, and is controlled by your smartphone’. Designed by Yves Béhar, the sculptural-spinning object is capturing peoples’ imaginations with its unorthodox playing style — rather than the record traditionally turning on a platter, the technology literally puts a spin on vinyl.

The first-ever Pantone color of the year experience has been brought to life in the heart of London by Airbnb. The two brands have joined forces to create the ‘outside in’ house in Clerkenwell, immersing guests in a universe of ‘greenery‘. The bookable apartment features a woodland reception area, an indoor greenhouse that doubles as a dining room, a garden bedroom with mown lawn, a tented nook for children, an herb garden kitchen, and botanical life interspersed throughout.

The highly-anticipated reveal sees 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric wrap a floating dock that connects various points on Italy’s Lake Iseo. Undulating with the movement of the waves, visitors can now experience ‘the floating piers’ as they walk from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the Island of San Paolo, which it completely encircles. The 3 kilometer-long walkway extends clear across the water, with surrounding mountains offering a bird’s-eye view of a golden network of passageways that lead in and around the town. The fabric continues along 1.5 kilometers of pedestrian streets in Sulzano and Peschiera Maraglio. (via Designboom)
