The flying car is here!

In a scale from one to worst-torture-invented how much do you hate traffic jams? I’m sure the answer is gonna be pretty high on the charts. And now try to count how many times have you wished the time of the flying car finally arrives and we can, at last, forget the energy-draining horror that scatters all over our roads and our rutines. What if I told you that day has arrived?

Well, it might sound crazy, but it’s here! The brand is called Terrafugia, the vehicle The Transition. In August, it made its first public demonstrations in the USA and all went perfectly. The “car” has been shaped and thought to comply with all ground traffic laws, as well with flying traffic laws, so it is fully operational and ready to be bought for $279.000. The company’s idea is to develop the vehicle until they reach their projected model of the true flying car, the TF-X.

Until then, The Tansition seems cool enough for me. Check out the performance specifications and other details about The Transition at Terrafugia’s official webpage. And reserve one if you wish. We sure will turn green with envy when jammed for half an hour during a daily commute.

Building with words

Who told you that writting was a linear action, a regular trace on a paper? Who told you that verses could only follow a certain rhythm? Can’t words and verses have volume? Don’t they have a visual dimension?

Words are much more than just a bunch of letters, which, when joined together, recall recognizable images or feellings. Mar Arza, jumps off these ordinary lines, catching different words to afterwards, build new concepts. She decontextualizes the pages of a book, crowded of different words that stop having meaning. She builds new concepts where words scape from two dimensions: words that speak vertical and horizontal, support and settle, twist and turn, generating new meanings and stories.

Mar gives a new sculptural and visual dimension to the action of reading. Moreover, with this unconventional process, she creates an active reading, trigger of multiple stories and fellings. The user scapes from its passiveness and starts making choices: how to do it, where to begin and end,… it becomes free.

Orbital Chandelier-Sputnik * Stilnovo Lamp

 

 

This chandelier takes us back to the era of space experiments, the Sputnik, the dog Laika, or the Trip to the Moon, but does so with a beauty in its clean lines in its elegant color combination in their particular and unique forms.

 

 

 

A true example of Italian mid-century modern design, this chandelier is a sputnik design from the 1950s manufactured by Stilnovo. It has six arms alternating up or down. The finish is in charcoal enamel and the socket covers are in brass. The brass has been newly polsihed and lacquered. It is complete and all original including the ceiling cap. Vintage Mid-century Modern lamps are characterized by simple lines and a fun space-age feel. In general, these lamps are geometric, with globes, hourglasses, and rings being the dominant shapes.

 

 

 

 

The earliest lamps of the period combined the figurative aesthetics of the the 1930s and ’40s with more familiar mid-century looks. These transitional lamps often featured kitschy plaster or chalkware bases shaped like Nubian slaves or cape-flourishing matadors. Above these painted figures were geometric, two-tiered shades in parchment or fiberglass. Such lamp shades often had stitched edges and were decorated with everything from geometric lines and designs to splatters and squiggles recalling the drip paintings of Abstract-Expressionist artist Jackson Pollock.

Top Luxury Hotel – SPITBANK FORT

We just came across this marvelous scenario in Hampshire and could not miss this opportunity to show you this. It’s a great idea, surrounded by water, a private set to enjoy the best moments in peace with the one you love the most. Watch the pictures and became speechless.

spitbank-fort

It started as a Fortress and then it was converted into a luxury private island and hotel after being disposed of by the Ministry of Defense in 1982.

Spitbank Fort is an unusual and historic sea fortress in the Solent, off Portsmouth. Now a luxury exclusive venue and hotel, the fort was formerly home to hundreds of soldiers guarding the approaches to Portsmouth. The arms and ammunition have long been removed, making way for nine luxuriously furnished bedroom suites, three bars, three restaurant areas, and spa facilities. You can also check how perfect it is for corporate rethreaths, weeding parties, private parties and thematic events at their website.
