The World First Kinetic Steampunk Bar

Enigma Café, the first kinetic steampunk pub is literally making history with its kinetic sculptures and sparked quite a share craze online after first appearing on the Facebook page. Designed by Romanian based designers Alexandru Tohotan and Zoltan Zelenyak, this place is full of wonders – dozens of finely designed steampunk details, rotating wheels, metallic flowers opening up on the ceiling, a live moving bird, a giant moving clock and even a robot. The works took almost two years to come to life, but the efforts are well worthwhile, offering an unparalleled experience for having your regular cup of coffee at a bar.

Check the video at the bottom to take a peek inside, and if you have chance, you can visit it at Enigma at Iuliu Maniu, Nr 12, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Photos by Zoly Zelenyak from The 6th-Sense Interiors.

Stunning Miniature Animal Sculptures Made of Recycled Watch Parts

Two years ago, we have featured the works of U.S. artist Susan Beatrice, who created steampunk animal sculptures from old watch parts, and today we will bring more spectacular works from her. With the environment in mind, the New Jersey-based artist Sue Beatrice, aka All Natural Arts, made those lovely little creatures entirely out of discarded and found objects (gears, sprockets, vintage pocket watches, etc.) You probably will be amazed how many animals can be created from those discarded materials, dragon, cat, mouse, rabbit, crab and so on. All those effort is made to encourage reusing instead of disposing and thereby accumulating waste on a planet that has limited resources. See more of Susan’s work on her facebook page.

Stunning Hand Crafted Steampunk Costumes by Alexander Schlesier

These are not pictures from sci-fi movies, these amazing costumes are actually hand made by Alexander Schlesier in his spare-time. Without any commercial purpose, these stunning looking steampunk works were created only because of Alexander’s passion. Using only authentic materials, such as old leather, steel, brass, copper, wood and glass, Alexander made these steampuck costumes with screws instead of glue. Since there are no plastic parts inside, sometimes the costumes are pretty heavy, like the below one which weight almost 90lbs!
