LEGO – The Patent Of The Brick That Revolutionized The World Of Toys

Here is the patent of the first original LEGO brick, which has since revolutionized the world of toys!

This patent was filed in 1958 in Denmark by Godtfred Kirk Christiansen, 60 years ago almost days to days. Since then, thousands of different bricks and pieces have been added, and LEGO has become the world’s second largest toy maker and an iconic brand for kids and adults.

Indian Artist Has Created “Kalpavriksha – The Wish Fulfilling Tree”

Indian designer and artist Vibhor Sogani has designed a modern stainless steel sculpture named “Kalpavriksha – the wish fulfilling tree”. The recently completed sculpture is the largest public art installation in the state of Gujarat and the second-largest in India.

The 35 foot (10m) high sculpture stands in the center of a large roundabout in an upcoming residential development, and is crafted from mirror-finished steel balls. Drawing inspiration from the surrounding landscape, the installation is an abstract representation of a tree, and on a bright, sunny day, the installation sparkles, and appears soft and diffused when the sky is overcast.

In the evenings, there’s an amber glow on the inside and a cold white glow on the outside adds another element of drama to it.

Russian Artist Creates Gorgeous Beaded Insects Completely By Hand

Some people fear insects, and to be true they really look kinda weird. But these handmade beetles scare me only with the impossible skill that their creator has mastered.

Nadezhda Belokon’ is a craftswoman from Ulyanovsk, Russia. She took her creative path in 2013 and tried herself in different types of art. Some time ago she got interested in creating jewelry with beads and gemstones. The artist uses only high-quality Japanese beads and beautiful rear stones. But look at the precious brooches, pendants and earrings she makes! Even cockroaches look exquisite in this shape. They amaze with the anatomical accuracy and beauty compared to Nature herself. Enjoy viewing!

This Modern Cat Tree Designed To Feel Your Cats At Anytime

This vertically oriented piece designed by the Japanese craftsman Yoh Komiyama. Covered in natural wood offers a private space for the cat while serving as a decorative interior object that fits seamlessly with its surroundings.

The spaces in between each cylindrical post provide glimpses, and thus convey the mutual presence, of both cat and human, maintaining a furtive connection between the two for a greater intimacy. As the axis of rotation is built in the outer structure, it can be opened like a door for easy maintenance.

The Greek marble used for the base not only helps the cat regulate body temperature more effectively, it also provides a low center of gravity to stabilize the tree. As for the materials, they offer design and functional value while also expressing a cultural fusion between the wooden materials of the East and stone materials of the West.

This Cheeky Fashion Collection Reminds Us About The Dog-Eat-Dog World


Francois Mori/AP Photo

That fashion is a dog-eat-dog world was perhaps the message from French designer Julien David, whose models for fall-winter previews all donned comic canine masks.

The looks — featuring huskies, Dalmatians, poodles and bulldogs — endowed David’s 22 designs with a sense of surreal fun and dog-style relaxation. The models posed during Wednesday’s ‘show’ sitting on chairs next to tables decorated with cards games and dominos, or slouched on a couch, as fashion insiders chuckled and snapped their cameras.

It was clever stage-managing by David, one of the rising stars in Paris menswear, to highlight his signature casual style. His clothes — baggy denims with turn-ups that revealed pulled-up wooly socks and white-laced sneakers — were just that.

This Paper Memo Pad Excavates Hidden Objects As It Gets Used

Leave it to the stationery-loving Japanese to come up with a new way to enjoy writing notes. The Omoshiro Block (loosely translated as ‘fun block’) utilizes laser-cutting technology to create what is, at first, just a seemingly normal square cube of paper note cards. But as the note cards get used, an object begins to appear. And you’ll have to exhaust the entire deck of cards to fully excavate the hidden object.

Produced by Japanese company Triad, whose main line of business is producing architectural models, the Omoshiro Blocks feature various notable architectural sites in Japan like Kyoto’s Kiyomizudera Temple, Tokyo’s Asakusa Temple and Tokyo Tower. The blocks are composed of over 100 sheets of paper and each sheet is different from the next in the same way that individual moments stack up together to form a memory.

CarbonScape – A Kinetic Data Soundscape Installation That Visualize CO2 Emission Rising Rate In Past 60 Years

CarbonScape is the latest kinetic data soundscape installation created by h0nh1m aka Chris Cheung. It consists of 18 tracks of granular synthesized sound samples, collected from the sound sources where carbon footprints left; from the jet engine sound, steam noises of the factory to the horn of the ships etc…one minute long for each track, giving chances to stand in silent tribute to the mother earth. The finale is composed of all tracks blending into the soundscape.

The work is a visualisation of carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere according to the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) since 1958. In 2017, the concentration of CO2 soared to its highest of the past three million years, with industrialization and the use of fossil fuels being one of the major factors. The installation arranged in a bamboo forest like landscape, with the changing ambience drone noises, imitates chimneys frequently found in power plants and factories, with black spheres indicating CO2 levels around the globe. Immersing the viewer in an environment taken over with chimneys, CarbonScape thinks about what our position as humans can be, while the earth’s capacity for life reaches its limits.
