The Saint B Cross MP3 player from MANWORKS Design offers form and function for all those Christian rockers out there.

I heard the Pope had a Nano but I think this one would be more appropriate.

Chicago Bean

Alien extraterrestrial mother ship? Not quite, it’s an interesting sculpture at Chicago’s Millennium Park. “Cloud Gate” is by British artist Anish Kapoor’s and it is his first public outdoor work. Wow, 110 tons of stainless steel, this isn’t going to fly into the air anytime soon.

name of design : wave chaise
design by : roberta rammê from brazil
Imagine a furniture to wear… then dress it with an innovator design, intense colors, ergonomics and technology appeal. Like in fashion, the point is to unify beauty, comfort, and functionality. Whether your desire is to watch TV or DVD, listen to your favorite CD, read, talk on the phone, or even study, take a nap or browse the internet, you got it close, in a multifunctional chaise-longue. This concept is inspired by the values and personality of a today’s teenager and the standards generated by a global hi-tech culture of facilities, where the access to technology is cheap and easy.
