Living in a tiny apartment — or tiny home — no longer needs to mean giving up the luxury of a dishwasher. Meet Tetra, an award-winning countertop dishwasher that’s not only compact and cute as a button, but is also easy to install (no plumbing needed) and affordable with a limited pre-order price of $299. Produced by Heatworks and designed by frog, the small-but-mighty Tetra is marketed with a 10-minute load cycle and was recently demoed at CES 2019 earlier this month.

There’s something extra eerie about places that are not quite abandoned just yet, but edging closer and closer to a prolonged death process. Relics of another time, these architectural remnants feel like physical connections to all the lives that passed through them, many of which have already met an end. Lacking any efforts to preserve or revive them, they slowly crumble, waiting for their inevitable demolition. Photographer Michael Eastman specializes in capturing such places on film in all their deteriorating glory.

Conventional wisdom holds that science fiction was written almost exclusively by men until the advent of feminism in the 1960s and ’70s. But when Lisa Yaszek, who teaches science fiction studies at Georgia Tech, went digging through old magazines, she discovered a very different story.

A beautiful collaboration between Toronto-based cinematographer and photographer Peter Hadfield and graphic designer Cameron McKague. Featuring 48 images of drained public swimming pools, the project is a critical exploration of Western society’s relationship with water. Each limited edition copy comes with a watercolour reproduction by Hadfield and all proceeds will go to Water First — a Canadian charity dedicated to addressing water challenges in Indigenous communities. See more images from “Drought” below.

Paul Seibert spent much of 2018 hovering thousands of feet over New York City. He was taking photographs for the social media accounts of the helicopter tour company FlyNYON, and over the course of the year Seibert shot the city from almost every imaginable angle. But even though he shared multiple vantage points, the images that always performed best on social media were those taken from a single spot: high over Harlem, looking south over Central Park, the skyscrapers of Midtown, and Downtown Manhattan, with the East and Hudson Rivers converging at the top of the frame.

Although I enjoy viewing institutional collections, I am perhaps mos

robert stadler has designed a new version of the drucker rattan chair, an icon of parisian bistros first created in 1885 by french furniture company maison drucker. combining traditional know-how of rattan manufacturing with the advantages of an aluminum base, the corso chair overcomes two weaknesses of the original design: the humidity that infiltrates by capillarity and the difficulty of stacking due to the reinforcing cross.all images © studio robert stadler
