Created by Bulgarian designer Victor Vasilev, this minimalist bathroom sink will attach your attention immdeitely with its almost surreal look. Unlike other bathroom furniture we published on DesignSwan, this design takes away anything that might be considered an excess. The whole sink is made of glass and connected/suppported by an elegant carrara marble stone. An interesting junction of geometric shapes occurs, which seems to be the basis of the design concept. Kub Basin comes with faucets and fittings, their subtle presence being a perfect match for the simplicity design of the sink. Morevoer, the carrara stone can be cleverly used as storage space and the project is also available in a highly intriguing version for two.

As a collaborative site specific project created by D.A.ST. arteam – installation artist Danae Stratou, industrial designer Alexandra Stratou, and architect Stella Constantinides, it was meant as an exploration of infinity against the backdrop of the largest African desert.

After early retirement from medical profession, Weerapong Chaipuck becomes a travel and landscape photographer. Traveling around Thailand and beyond (to China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and India), Chaipuck manages to take a peek into the lives of ordinary villagers in fairly remote areas. Rather than hitting up the most touristy spots, he dives deep into each country’s rich culture to document their realities. Hence in his photo collection, you can not only see aesthetically pleasing views of nature but diverse people within each environment as well. For example traditional fishermen who work with birds to catch their prey or local flower vendors that sell their merchandise on worn boats as they drift across lakes. Check the whole collection on Chaipuck’s 500px page. And if you are interested in a one-on-one or small group photographic study, you can contact Weerapong Chaipuck as well.

Phonics songs such as “A is for Apple, B is for Ball” are taught when we start to learn alphabet. London-based illustrator Marcus Reed use the same idea but different approach to create adorable illustrations of animals for each letter. Drawing upon the animals’ natural shapes, colors, and behavior, he seamlessly blended different features together to form each character. The alphabet features animals that take the form of the first letter of their names. For example: M Is For Meerkat, P is for Penguin, E is for Elephant, and so on. This creative set servers perfectly as the foundation for the educational purpose – information is visually communicated in a memorable way that is easy to children to learn. Such an inventive interpretation of classic typography, beautiful and meaningful!
