Li Xiaofeng, Chinese artist extraordinaire, created these versions of the Lacoste favorites (among others) using porcelain. They are currently at Paris' Musee des Arts et des Metiers, a museum in Paris that houses a collection of quite striking peices including Foucault's pundulum. Although they probably aren't the most comfortable, Xiaofeng's polos are certainly appropriate for an art collection of the aforementioned sort. Creative!

The Disco Chair is the brain child of London's own Kiwi & Pom and can be set at both continuous and strobe light settings. I don't think there's much to say regarding the awesomeness of this piece. Turn on the bright furniture, play a little Haddaway and dance the night away. Sweet!

This is the Marina Bay Sands Skypark in Singapore. It is insane! Tremendous heights complete with an incredible pool and gorgeous views. The rooftop alone is 380 meters long, spanning across three skyscrapers. The complex was designed by architect Moshe Safdie and cost about 80 million to construct. Think about this: it takes 20 minutes minimum to walk across the entire structure and it can hold up to 3 900 people at once. Amazing!

What a great concept. A handkerchief that blocks signals to your phone so that you don't ruin your diner dates. I've always been a fan of the ever so modern cellular telephone, but when it comes to social situations (especially one-on-ones), I've always felt the utmost respect for those who were able to control their phone addictions. The handkerchief is part of the My Phone Is Off For You revolution, check out the website HERE.

Plastikman (Richie Hawtin) has created some very uniquely and technologically advanced new visuals for his performance at Weloveart. It's mostly perfectly in tune with the music, emphasizing the bass, but what i find most intriguing is the orb-like case of sound in which he has enveloped himself. Looks like a great show.
