Geek Clock

Available in both Maths and Science ranges, this clock adds a challenge to something as simple as reading the time. On both styles the user needs to work out the problem to discover the correct number. Of course it is also simple enough to know that “52 – x2 + x = 10″ happens to be in the “7 o’clock” position, but those whole like some mental arithmetic, this is for you. The Maths one seems a little easier than the Science, but allows you to gain knowledge of some pop quiz questions.

This design by Mauricio Affonso allows the juice from squeezing a lemon or lime to be transferred straight into the container. Fixing onto the top of any standard drinks bottle, this little gadget is genius.

Toolbox to Wall Storage

A great Before and After sequence from Kim Knoll shown on Design Sponge. Using the shell of an old tool box, she revamped it and attached it to her wall for an eye-catching display! Kim says “A great tip for getting the life back in wood that’s aged a little too much is to use a wood conditioner. It’s great for restoring the original wood, but still keeps the aged effect.

Depth Wallpaper

Ever wanted something a bit more interesting than textured wallpaper? Or a change from all that ‘focal point’ paper? Well here is a great alternative. These wallpapers designed by Young & Battaglia for Mineheart give more than depth to a dull wall. Using them to cover the whole room, or just for a couple of strips inject a bit of life into a room.

Mobile Tree Bench

Spatial designer Rogier Martens has designed this clever piece of urban furniture called Tree Bench. It is temporary seating for public parks. Like a true spatial designer should be, he looked at the real surroundings of the area and found the elements the parks naturally have to offer: tree, grass, paths. “ It is no challenge to just dig a hole and install a bench. An ideal bench needs the environment and the environment needs the bench too. ” It shows that you don’t need to destroy the environment to create a useful object.

Modern Villa

This is a recently built villa with great views of the Stockholm Inlet. The large windows give panoramic views and plenty of natural light into these spacious rooms. A great combination of white/grey/beige tones with a few simple splashes of colour.

A slate coloured rug brings out the white leather chairs.

Wooden sides and counter tops combined with colour injections of paintings and decorations add depth to the vast white.

Adding teal colours to the walls with full length curtains accentuates the large room, with colour splashes also on the floor and cushions.

Putting denim covers with a white trim against this panelled white wall gives a nautical feel to this room.
