The Future Book was meant to be interactive, moving, alive. Its pages were supposed to be lush with whirling doodads, responsive, hands-on. The old paperback Zork choose-your-own-adventures were just the start. The Future Book would change depending on where you were, how you were feeling. It would incorporate your very environment into its story—the name of the coffee shop you were sitting at, your best friend’s birthday. It would be sly, maybe a little creepy. Definitely programmable. Ulysses would extend indefinitely in any direction you wanted to explore; just tap and some unique, mega-mind-blowing sui generis path of Joycean machine-learned words would wend itself out before your very eyes.

Coffee Bar acts as a point of difference to other coffee scrubs in the market that takes messy coffee scrubs and compresses it into a bar. As simple as that. We decided to position the brand as a clean, simple and easy to use product, and expressed that through the design. The design draws on the square form the bar and the clean and compact form.

The Soho House Amsterdam establishment has taken over the Bungehuis, an old 1930s university building on the Spuistraat that overlooks the canal, and spruced it up with their signature interiors and furnishings. The building now accommodates 79 bedrooms, a rooftop pool, an entire floor of club space, as well as Italian dining at Cecconi’s restaurant and a Cowshed spa on the ground floor.

the smartflower all-in-one solar energy system gives flower power a literal sense with its botanical-influenced solar panels that are sprouting up across america. the ‘plug-&-play’ home applicance, dubbed the smartflower POP, is a photovoltaic system that takes the form of a flower, with solar panel ‘petals’ that automatically unfurl when the sun rises in the morning. the device directs it’s 18 M2 solar modular fan towards the sun and begins producing electricity to power your hot shower, coffee machine, and breakfast radio. thanks to dual-axle sun tracking, the fan mores reliably along with the sun throughout the day which allows the module to produce 40 X more energy that a static solar device.

Guests at the Yosemite Pines RV Resort, just 22 miles from Yosemite National Park, can enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience by sleeping in large Conestoga wagons.
