PRE-ORDER on KICKSTARTER: SHOW THEM SOME LOVE - SUPPORT PEACE BICYCLES!
This bike takes me back to a time when life was simpler. When air was cleaner. And time stood still when I rode my bike. Introducing The Dreamer by Peace Bicycles of Los Angeles.
It looks simpler. But that doesn't mean we're back to three speeds. All models are equipped with seven-speed transmission, pot hole busting balloon tires and most importantly, a frame design that requires you to ride upright. So your posture is proper and your back won't hurt. It has a spring-loaded seat and riser handlebars - this ride could not be more pimped for comfort. We all know that mountain bikes may look cool, but they aren't meant for city riding. Plus you have to change your clothes when you get where you're going and that's a drag. I prefer to look cool on my bike.

Teuco has created a line of bathtubs that push the versatility of Duralight beyond its previous limits to create silhouettes that are both modern and classic. The clean lines offer a simplicity that is strikingly beautiful with the tapered legs and softly angled sides for an overall effect of minimalist magnificence.

Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992) designed the Bardi's Bowl Chair from her adopted home of Brazil in 1951. Born in Rome, Italy, she was a prolific designer devoted to her work and she created the chair to be a balance of industrialized standardized fabrication and individualized design aesthetics. The mid century design combined with today's colour palette is the perfect pop for a modern aesthetic.

Before designer Salmon Nortje, nobody has really thought of showing us how hot and cold water blend together before cascading out of the faucet. This is exactly what the Pavati tap beautifully does, it shows us how the drama of two streams of water blending into one and creating an exquisite hand-washing experience. The hot and the cold columns graciously turn and bend creating a Y shape that insures the perfect meeting point for the two streams. The aesthetic is ultra-modern and minimalistic, while the components are the traditional ones.The standard mechanical parts create a strong contrast with the futuristic design, but the goal was for the tap to be used in standard conditions. Pavati thus fits most standard basins and can be installed with simple tools. The hot and cold streams will vary in position depending on how the temperature dials are adjusted. This way, the the two streams also become a visual indicator of what temperature we should expect from the combined stream. A great way of achieving an avant-garde design from existing standard parts. And yet another proof that water is an eternal source of inspiration for designers and artists!

It?s a chair that brings ?creature comforts? back home. Dubbed the ?Origine Du Monde, Maybe!? chair, this unusual, ultra-modern chair was design by Italo Rota for Italian furniture house Meritalia. The soft hues complement the plush cushions perfectly, forming what the designed has described as ?uterine sensuality.? The cushions are made of memory foam which, in keeping with the obviously maternal theme of the design, reminds us of protection, rest and the future. The base is made from polished aluminum, irregular in shape, just like the chair concept as a whole, If you like unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, this is a must-see! Check it out at Meritalia.

Is it a radiator, or is it artwork? These cool modern radiators by Caleido are both! The Therme home radiator is an masterful swirl of brilliant hues reminiscent of watercolor. For more-modern tastes, the Geiger radiator features a computer-generated design set on a sleek, black background. The elongated rectangular shape is easy to incorporate among your existing artwork, or let it steal the spotlight and feature it as an art piece all on its own. These cool radiators are by Karim Rashid, who stayed true to his signature funky style. These new radiators made their debut at Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2010. Fore more info visit Caleido.
