Inspirational Design of the Week: The "Centipede" Cinema

It’s kind of odd, but we like it! What do you think of this public cinema design? Built in 2012 on the streets of Guimarães, Portugal — the structure offers a unique experience for both movie goers, and design lovers. The project was thought up, and built by Colin Fournier from the Barlett School of Architecture, Polish artist Marysia Lewandowska, and London studio NEON.

The tiny cinema includes 16 tube-like openings for people to poke their heads into, and enjoy the show. Their combined protruding lower-bodies are what give the structure its “centipede” look. Dwellers are welcome to enjoy an hour-long film while inside the structure, which is made up of about 20 short trailers. Fun, innovative, and creative! We’re big fans.

Unique design is our forte! Have you checked out our DNA Portraits yet?

Inspirational Design of the Week: The UP Dining Table by Christopher Fuffy

We really admire the design of this dining table by Christopher Duffy, dubbed the UP Dining Table. The table features a glass tabletop suspended by reflective gold and silver balloons — it somehow manages to be both whimsical, and modern at the same time. The designer used toughened glass, metal resin composite, and toughened steel rods to create the table, which could easily double as a piece of art!

The design is so unique, it’s being sold as a limited edition. Only 20 tables in total will be in circulation. What do you think of Duffy’s design?

Incredible design is what inspires us the most! Have you checked out our unique portraits yet?

It’s modern, it’s elegant, and best of all it’s portable. Check out this uniquely designed indoor/outdoor gel fireplace by Holly & Martin.

Posted in Inspirational Design of the Week, Just Cool, Science by Courtney on February 21st, 2013
 

You know that we love designs that combine art + science, but for our inspiration of the week we’ve chosen to feature a design that combines furniture + science instead. Via Tech Nation News:

Why step outside to gaze at the moon when you can just admire your credenza? This design by Sotirios Papadopoulos features a photo-realistic image of the moon that has been treated with special material so that it glows in the dark. It will absorb the lights of the sun and in your home during the day and be luminescent at night.

There are only 24 of these credenzas available, and they ship with a CD of original music designed to go with the piece. I hope it includes recordings of howling wolves.
