    By artist Ellen Jewett. Awesome!
    "Each sculpture is handmade and painted with no more tools than fingers and a paint brush. By virtue of this primal process, each creation is completely unique and produced in a fluid and intuitive manner. The process begins with a handmade metal armature over which light weight clay is sculpted. The painting is executed with acrylic, mineral and oil pigments and the embedded eyes are glass. When complete the whole piece is glazed to intensify colour and strength. With inspiration derived from animal physiology and a love of the fantastic, grotesque and absurd, each sculpture is unique and personable. "

    German Designer Florian Renner re-imagines the handheld Game Boy  – the 'game boy up1'. 'the project target was to keep the catchy elements of the original and adapt them to the functions and requirements of current games,' explains Renner. 'in addition to the existing materiality, there is a variation from sustainable natural fiber reinforced plastic.'  The german designer kept the headphone output and game cartridges, which are hallmarks to the platform, and closely adapted the display to meet standards of today’s devices. The earliest 'game boy' had an eight-bit display, followed closely by a colored successor that combined to sell 118.69 million units worldwide.

    These architectural objects are "gigantic wooden megaphones" for the forest, part of an acoustic installation in Estonia's gorgeous Pähni Nature Centre for amplifying the sounds of the landscape.  Created by design students in the Interior Architecture program at the Estonian Academy of Arts. It's a great idea for a project. Sit in them, read books, whisper to friends, listen to birds.
    "On September 18th, an installation of three gigantic wooden megaphones built by a team of Estonian Academy of Arts interior architecture students will be opened for all forest dwellers for resting, contemplation and above all – listening to the sounds of nature and forests around them. …This is however not the only use for the installation, as it will double as a sitting and resting area, and can be used as a stage for small events."

    Coffee Lid : Take 'Kiss' Out by Korean Designer Jang WooSeok, coffee cup lid  features a protruding nose and big full lips.
    "I love both coffee and kisses. I always have coffee a day, but not a kiss. So I began to sketch the idea at the cafe. Funny, I imagined people have a pure joy when walking around kiss lid in hand. Different from the other coffee lids which have a usual hole to put a straw or to drink directly, Take ‘Kiss’ Out looks like a human face. Therefore, a coffee drinker experiences a visually funny and emotionally different coffee-drinking when drinking. This is a disposable cup& lid for B2B (Cafe franchise) product. Polystylene Material. And It will produce first this week. There is only mouth on the lid to start with prototype. However I felt like there was something missing in our early design concept. I realized that touch the noses is essential point in order to feel realistically while i kissed. So I add the nose and face muscle to the lid. Finally, It has the lineaments of that of a Greek statue as well as a friendly face."

    The Guardian reported that the Japanese government had reached a decision about the fate of its New National Stadium after two years of protests, redesigns, and cost-reductions. “We have decided to go back to the start on the Tokyo Olympics-Paralympics stadium plan, and start over from zero,” said prime minister Shinzo Abe, according to The Guardian. The new stadium will have to be designed and built in less than five years,a new national stadium that would be ready to host the Rugby World Cup in 2019, the Tokyo 2020 Games and meet the need for a new home for Japanese sport for the next 50 to 100 years. The stadium was designed by high-profile UK/Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, and was originally projected to cost around $3.1 billion—as we pointed out at the time, that’s $2.6 billion more than Hadid’s Olympic venue in London.
