The Sugar Bowl Residence

In an otherwise horizontally oriented house, a two story glazed wall at the main stair provides a singular vertical perspective on the stands of surrounding pines and provides a moment of transition from the heavier base element to the light-filled airy spaces above. On the upper level, a variety of living spaces and the master bedroom suite,each enjoying mountain views, are gathered between the linear roof form and the simple block below. The interior palette of walnut, fir,concrete, and steel strikes a balance between clean, modern spatial expression with the warm, rustic feel of a mountain home.

Perfume Packaging – The Visual Image of Odor

Believe it or not, but many women feel reluctant to throw away empty perfume bottles. “Nonsense!” some will say. Nope, it’s true. The vast majority of them look so beautiful! No wonder, since perfume bottles and their packaging are usually developed as precisely and thoroughly as the perfumes themselves. Multiple talented designers work on creating the exclusive packaging for perfume, because it is in fact not just the glass bottles and hard paper they have to make – they are going to represent us the visual image of the odor inside. In many cases we subconsciously, not even realizing it, choose the perfume taking into account the looks of a vessel and a box it is packaged in. If it wasn’t true, they would not look practically as real art masterpieces!

I’ve been interested in Art ever since I realised I got more attention from drawing with a pencil, rather than using it to poke my younger brother.

Artificial Landscapes

This project is based on the concept of artificial generative architecture.Imagine a future where humanity is extinct due to wars and destruction of the ecology but somehow artificial forms of architecture begin to emerge and create a sustainable protected form of architectural matter where the occupant is no one. A way of nature and technology highlighting in a sarcastic way the overutilisation of their resources.

Smiling – Be Careful, It’s Contagious!

As scientists say, there are about 19 different types of smiles… In other words, people smile in different way depending on the particular situation; for example, a smile can be polite, happy, understanding, lenient, etc. Let’s try to check this theory. Have a look at the pictures below and try to distinguish different types of smiles, captured by photographers… Honestly speaking, while compiling this gallery we could not define the particular type of every smile. The only decision we made is that all these smiles are real, not fake. Sincerity, expressed by human lips and enforced by eyes, is impossible to falsify. By the way, it is also a scientific fact that people have the ability to distinguish between real and false smiles intuitively.

Daily Inspirations no. 140

Sad but true that multiple geniuses of creative arts find it easier to work and create real masterpieces if doomed and depressed. Cruzine team would do whatever it takes to make these things change. That’s exactly the reason why we work hard every single day to compile the inspirational sets of images for the artists to be able to meet their Muses while keeping their spirits high and positive. The world is in constant progress, and we sincerely hope, we would like to believe that it’s now time to leave such means of inspiration as depression in the past and utilize newer techniques and methods, as experience, pleasure, and happiness to make art. So just be happy and you’ll be inspired with no need to burn out not to fade away.
