Cella: House for Mosses and Small Plants

Cella is a new, creative product designed by Ecoid to bring urban people closer to nature. Constructed of flexible and lightweight plastic, Cella creates a micro-climate that houses moss/small plants and allows to thrive both indoors and outdoors. Cella is uniquely adaptable in that it can be attached to walls and roofs, or simply stand alone. The small, organic form of the units make efficient use of space to fit a garden in an urban home or apartment. There are no limits to your landscaping visions – no matter you want to grow a traditional garden on the floor, create a little oasis on the desk or climb up the walls and hang from the ceiling – just be creative with your designs! If you like it and want to create your urban landscape, support it on kickstarter.

Your Ecommerce Website Design: Responsive or Adaptive?

Your Ecommerce Website Design: Responsive or Adaptive?

One of the most popular topics in web design since last year is the discussion around using responsive web design versus adaptive web design. The primary issue between these two approaches has to do with their differences in how they display your website and make it accessible over different devices such as the traditional desktop computer and the slew of increasingly popular mobile devices.

While this is actually an old debate in the field of design, the growing significance of mobile shopping in the future makes this a timely subject for online retailers whether they are just about to start their website or they are still undecided which approach to take for their existing website.

How to downsize successfully

People have all kinds of motivation for downsizing, but there tends to be two main reasons. Firstly, scaling down after children have moved out, when they no longer need all that space and could do with a bit more money to fund university fees, for example, or getting older; when heading towards retirement, people may choose to downsize in order to fund well-deserved holidays or lengthy travel.

Others downsize due to increases in the cost of living – because they want to live in a different, more expensive area, or because by selling a large property they can afford to buy two smaller ones, thereby giving them either a holiday home or a rental income.

Glorious Landscape Alphabet Art From 19th Century

Buried in the archives of the British Museum, this wonderful series of 26 landscape scenes, using the shapes of letters to form idyllic scenery, was designed by illustrator Charles Joseph Hullmandel who was one of the most important figures in the development of British lithography in the first half of the 19th century. These particular pieces were produced sometime between 1818 and 1860. It is hard to believe this glorious series was created in 19th century. Quite impressive, right?

Letter A: upper part composed of three figures around a fire at the edge of a slope to small pond, forming the lower part of the letter; outline by trees.
