These pins are adorable. Tokyo based Duncan Shotton Design Studio wants to bring a bit of outer space to our homes and I think it’s a cute idea.

But what else can one say about a push-pin? Well these pins are actually little works of art. For each pin they mold the shape of the planet and then they’re painted by hand. Once painted, the pins are assembled in their display cases, which are also serial numbered. And that’s impressive, for someone to put so much work into a few tiny pins.

Have you ever wonder that? Graphic designer Mathieu Blanchet made a series of minimalist posters of well known cartoons and movies and suggested a different ending to them.

Although I respect his idea, things would never be the same if that happened. It’s almost blasphemy. Because let’s face it Wile E. Coyote could never ever win. Road Runner is just to smart for him. That’s life.

Super Mario Bros, The Smurfs

Babe, Dastardly and Muttley

Toy Story, Man in Black

So, one day you decide to put a Go Pro camera into the water bucket and leave it to see if any animals will come to drink from it. Of course they come and the resulting video really made my day. The video was made by an interesting John Wells from The Field Lab also known as the Southwest Texas Alternative Energy And Sustainable Living Field Laboratory.

Nox is a portable luminaire by Zurich-based designer Alfredo Häberli for a Danish brand Astep. This simple night lamp looks almost too simple, but it has an advantage. It has a wireless charging system with induction technology, so you can use it unplugged. You can carry it around wherever you need light both indoors and outdoors. It’s touch dimmer makes the Nox light versatile. It offers anything from a cozy soft light at a dinner party or a brighter light for reading. And that’s it. Do you need more from a lamp? I don’t think so.

Have you ever found yourself wanting to rearrange products in a supermarket, just because composition of the stuff on the shelves would look better? Don’t get me started on colours that don’t go together in the sweets section. Shelves would look so much better if for instance chocolates would be stacked into a rainbow.

Well anyway, this are the things I thought of first when I saw the installations by Carson Davis Brown. He artistically rearranges things in stores without their permission.

Mass is a site specific installation project about creating visual disruptions in places of mass (to date: big-box stores, super-centers, etcetera). At an intersection between Street Art and Land Art, installations are made without permission, using found materials within the retail landscape. The works are made, photographed, then left to be experienced by passersby and ultimately dissembled by location staff. Photo documentation of Mass works are initially exhibited in a consumer landscape. Printed, framed (in unsold frames) and exhibited in-stores; all without permission.
