Origami House.

There are no limitations in architecture. That's what I think when I saw this. This origami inspired house in Tokyo designed by architect Yasuhiro Yamashita of Atelier Takuto shows off excellent lines and shape without sacrificing form and function. Along with an integrated car port, which balances handsomely on a single point at its base; this innovative design is a fantastic solution plaguing crowded urban cities.

Eva Solo Bin.

This' just nice. The video itself is a self explanatory. Key to the design is the lid, which through clever geometry and without hinges or other mechanics, balances magically on the top edge of the bin. The bin liner fixture is a surprisingly simple design that employs a rubberized metal ring that the top of the liner folds around.

Lego Celebrates Olympic.

I always have a huge passion for Lego. Though I don't think I have the patience to build this kind of masterpiece... ^-^. Built by the Hong Kong Lego User Group and in order to celebrate the 2008 Olympics with scale models of many of the venues, including the National Stadium, the National Aquatics Center, and Olympic Village. This awesome Lego sculpture which is both impressively realistic and pretty massive in size.

Keyboard Napkin.

This one has really made me smile. Because it just fits me. I always have my lunch in front of my laptop. And it really hurts me when something spilled on it... T-T. This keyboard napkin is quite an idea, since it has the whole keyboard printed on it.

Dropping Painting Table.

I really really really love this one! Amazing! It really looks like a someone has spilled a large amount of red paint. From French product designer John Nouanesing, I could say that this one is pretty extra ordinary. My respect to Mr. Nouanesing.

Switch Me.

It looks like a light switch, but what do I know, it's actually a salt and pepper shaker. Or maybe we should call it a salt and pepper 'switcher'... ^-^. So you might get the idea already, you just 'switch' it if you want salt, and switch it again if you want pepper. Cool huh! Oh, and it's designed by Chetan Sorab.

Tetrad Bamboo Shelving.

First, I thought it was kind of a maze. Well, actually, this is a book shelf ^-^. This Tetrad Bamboo Shelving uses the Tetris-inspired shapes to create sustainable, modular shelving for your home or office. Nice!

It's a Tree 'Restaurant'.

Starving for a childhood adventure? Naha Harbor Diner in Okinawa, Japan, sure can brings all of your memories back. The good news is, there's an elevator carved inside the tree trunk, ready to take you up directly to the main dining room, So, no, you don't have to climb. ^-^

Found this one at Wee Wonderfuls. Really cute! I'd love to put this on my couch once I get a house...(yes, literally, specifically, and hypothetically, I don't have a house yet...T-T)

Lego Cuff Links for My Ex Boss.

I once had a boss who's really into Lego stuff. I know, it's kind of cute for a man but I guess he just couldn't resist the temptation. He wears Lego earing, Lego necklace [1st picture], and I guess, he would also like this Lego-like cuff links [2nd and 3rd]. I think he would prefer white...
