Fuckin’ Pink Shoes, Man!
Fuckin’ Pink Shoes, Man!
I had to look at this photo for a few seconds before I saw past the ornate, neo-Rococo frame to recognize the familiar Batman icon making up the actual mirror itself. Very cool! Created out of hand-molded, painted gypsum from a 2008 design by Stanislav Katz, this conversation-starting mirror comes standard in black, vintage gold or white (with other colors available on request), and measures just over 32-inches wide by 27-inches high. The sale price for one of just five mirrors currently available is $320 (not too dear really, considering) with shipping (from Latvia!) setting you back another $120. Purchasing information can be found at This Link!

This is probably one of the coolest and most impressive bedroom designs ever! I’m not nuts about the orange paint job in this room (because you know pink is my color) — and the ‘fondant-like’ drape of the colorless linens is a huge turn-off — but I sure do love the idea of sleeping on a bed that’s suspended over a small body of water. Sleeping is one of my favorite activities and I am sure that being cradled in such a nocturnal environment as this would inspire me to have very comforting dreams. Water beds have never really been my thing, but this I like!
While this unique soft sculpture initially appears to be a sofa (due to its overall size and shape), a closer look reveals that this extremely cleverly designed Pig Chair isn’t really a couch, but more of a Love Seat (for two very skinny people) at best. At any rate, it looks soft and comfy and is certainly a fantastic conversation piece. According to designer Pavia Burroughs (who created “Hillhock,” she she calls it, as part of her senior design thesis) the chair is, “completely hand stitched, upholstered in dusty pink velvet and pink satin, sports two hand carved walnut hooves and two glass taxidermy eyes. His entire body has been padded with 2″ upholstery foam. Being mostly carved from insulation foam, he is surprising light weight and durable. He could easily be picked up by one average adult (except for his awkward shape). His underside is covered in bottom cloth, making him easily pushed around a room.”
The chair sold on Etsy for $950 (pick up only on site in Philadelphia)!
Jesus God, I would so live in this place. This 3,500 square foot house in Malibu, California was designed by “Happy Chic” interior designer Jonathan Adler in March of 2009 for Barbie’s 50th Birthday and was never open to the public. At least we have photos, viewable via the above link, to see what a masterpiece of pink pop culture it truly was. *Sigh*

The coolest thing about the far-reaching field of modern design is that you just never know what amazing idea an inspired designer might come up with. Take, for example, Swedish designer Alexander Lervik’s conceptual development of the light bar – a light installation called Dimensions – on display at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair. The light bar sculpture is made up of 1728 heads, arranged in 12 rows x 12 rows of posts, each post containing 12 heads alternating male and female, which are arranged to form a cube-like structure. Dimensions was originally created for insurance company Skandia, with the heads meant to symbolize the employees of the company.
Each of the heads is controlled with LED lights that form a three-dimensional screen. The heads constantly change color, from orange to blue to red to pinks and greens, creating a playful and vibrant space that is “good for meetings, reflection and mingling,” according to Lervik. The lighting technology for the installation has been developed in partnership with Stockholm Lighting Company. Many more pictures are available at This Link.
