3D Newspaper Ad Looks - Corona Kitchen’s

Rather than trying to draw consumers in with slogans and images, Salazar decided to play with the shape of the ad itself by creating an optical illusion. With just a glance, readers will see that something about this ad is outside of the ordinary. Diagonal lines skew the text amid the otherwise rigidly-columned page. However, it requires a closer look to really understand what’s going on.

What do you think of this ad? Would it inspire you to go to Corona Kitchen for your remodeling needs? Or, is it just something fun to look at while reading your paper in the morning?

Qwerty Keyboard Sofa by ZO_loft

The digital age changed the way we design things and technology offers us so many things that simplify our lives. With this idea in mind, the design and architecture practice of ZO_loft, located in Italy, incorporated a part of the keyboard into the design of a sofa and named it the Qwerty keyboard sofa.


Imagine how perfect this would be at a tech conference, or in an IT company’s waiting area? I think it’s a lot of fun. The design pokes fun at the idea of falling asleep at your computer on your keyboard. The sofa folds down into a flat bed and the adjustable surface is controlled using tiny motors.

Rain Room - Walk Through Rain Without Getting Wet?!

What if we could control the weather?

London-based art studio Random International’s latest installation, Rain Room, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, is an indoor downpour that detects passers-through and actually adjusts, to keep them dry.

Thanks to eight motion sensors installed above the space, the water pouring from the ceiling shivvers to avoid you as you move through the room, leaving you completely dry. The sensation of walking through a wall of water and staying dry is uncanny!

Enjoy the virtual tour!

"People think that design is styling. Design is not style. It's not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts. Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need, and beauty to produce something that the world didn't know it was missing."
