Street Style Memory Game

I’m breaking a tiny rule here. This game is not officially available yet, but it’s sort of worth posting anyways. Whether you’re an avid follower of the many many street style blogs or not, these hipster shots will have you improving your memory while studying which face goes with what body. I love memory games (self-admitted dork here), so I think this one is pretty funny.

Pupek Tall Tumbler by Bollen Glass

I was intrigued by the design of this mouth-blown, Czech crystal glass thinking the bulbous bits were some modern use of animal heads – tapirs perhaps. As it turns out, the concept dates back to the 16th century when most people ate with their hands and the bulbous bits, known as Pupek (dots), kept the glass from slipping out of greasy hands. What’s old really is new.

Art History Print by Vuk Vidor

Think of this print as an expensive cheat sheet.

The prize for the best art history goes without doubt to Vuk Vidor, an artist from Belgrade working in Paris. His mural called ‘Art History’ is a list; on each line he links an artist to his/her cultural impact in three words. He is so efficient that he tackles over 30 in his piece. So for example he writes ‘Mondrian owns Geometry’, ‘Pollock owns Drippings’, ‘Warhol owns Pop’, ‘Botero owns Fat’ and ‘Munch owns Despair’.

Art history (part one – version C)

I’ve fallen in love with the Powermat.

Using a Miniot case for your Apple gadget? Add the Powermat univeral dock. Imagine stopping by your favorite coffee/hot chocolate shop and laying your phone down on the counter; as you sip, the counter powers your phone. This technology can be implanted into any surface, so just imagine what it means for the future of decorating and industrial design on the whole!
