Polygons – The Origami Measuring Spoon

“Unless your measuring spoons are all tethered together (which is annoying unto itself) you’ve probably spent too much time sifting through kitchen drawers trying to find the one you need. Rahul Agarwal‘s Polygon measuring spoon solves that problem with an easy-to-store flat design that simply folds to whatever capacity you need.

Pre-etched and labelled score lines make the Polygon easy to fold on exactly the lines you need to for teaspoons or tablespoons, and since it returns to a flat piece of plastic, it’s easy to scrape the last few bits of ingredients into a bowl. In fact, the only way this design could be improved is if Rahul actually found a few investors willing to help him put it into production.”

Meet Animal Sculptor Edouard Martinet

“When looking at these perfectly assembled sculptures by French artist Edouard Martinet it’s difficult to believe the raw materials he used ever existed in another form. Yet every head, thorax, leg, wing, and eye from these assorted creatures was once part of a car, bicycle, typewriter, or other found object. Reading through his material lists it becomes clear how completely thorough and judicious Martinet is in selecting the perfect objects to realize his vision, truly a master of his craft.”

“Pornogami : A Guide to the Ancient Art of Paper-folding for Adults is a complete guide of 128 pages to teach the art of origami but in more cheeky way. Imagined by origami Master Sugoi and for adults, this book explains step by step how to fold paper in order to obtain phallic shapes, female sex, sex-toys and women’s breasts paper sculptures. In general, Master Sugoi is the author of classical origamis shaped like animals and creatures but this time, he wanted to speak to more pervert souls.”

Modern Day Penny Farthing by standard highwheels

“Established in 2013 by swedish architect per-olof kippel, standard highwheels reintroduces the challenge and drama of high-wheel bicycles. the unlikely marriage of man and machine becomes evident on a penny farther, an image lost by the ubiquity of conventional bikes.

The hand-made high-wheel bicycles are direct drive, meaning the cranks and pedals are directly connected to the hub; the front wheel can be enlarged to increase maximum speed – the bigger the wheel, the faster the bike. the frame is constructed out of a single tube that follows the circumference of the front wheel, diverting to a trailing rear wheel. all parts and components have been carefully designed; the bike features a high quality stainless steel handlebar, a classic leather saddle and polished hub and pedals. they come in two sizes – 48 and 52 inches – and can be slightly adjusted by changing the crank arm length.”

Unbelievable Bus Shelter

On London’s busy New Oxford Street unsuspecting commuters had the wait of their lives at the bus stop. To give people “an unbelievable moment in their day”, the ingenious team of Pepsi Max and AMV BBDO transformed a bus stop by positioning a camera so it shows real time image of the other side of the display…and added their little twist to the images…

J&B Limited Tattooed Edition Packaging

J&B Rare scotch blend whisky was born in London second part of XIX st century from famous wine and spirits merchant Justerini & Brooks  willing to create its own house whisky. It is exactly at the same period that tattoo started to spread through London, after the trend coming from Royal Navy sailors used to come back from distant travels sporting tattoo, finally reached British upper class when Prince Bertie (later Edward VII) was first tattooed in 1862 before to spread over all Great Britain and Europe…

As a celebration of this origin J&B decided to tattoo 25 bottles for real.

“First thing, we fully covered bottles with a latex skin, like the one used to practice tattoo, slim enough to respect bottle shape and strong enough to be hit many times my tattooer’s needles… We decided to color skins with a human skin color to strengthen the tattoo perception and create something intriguing…

Then we asked Sébastien Mathieu (SM Bousille), owner of Le Sphinx a private tattoo room in Paris, to support us in this adventure. Excited by the challenge he immediately accepted… with only a partial idea of how complex it would be… Actually he spent around 20 hours to tattoo each bottle.

Each of the 25 bottle is tattooed from a single design but intrinsically, each bottle is unique.” ”
