Golf Tees

BlackLAB is this kickass architecture firm out of Toronto, ON.  Inside their 1000 square foot warehouse studio is this fresh wall art.  The piece was based on an aerial shot of the surrounding neighborhood.  A crazy mural crafted out of some 44,000 golf tees and constructed over a 4 month period.  Long hours of layout and hammering.

You can check more of it here and here.

The Handwritten Note

Why?  Because it's just cool.  A handwritten note is somewhat of a lost tradition in the current digital world.  These three guys are out to put it back on the map with some kickass, custom, hand crafted stationary.  The designs are inspired by landscape, architecture and local history.  A very cool spin and approach in an industry predominately run by women.

A Guest Bath

A snap shot of the guest bath found in a modern farmhouse reno in upstate New York.  A wide open, roomy space that blends salvaged antiques with a modern vibe.  There's not a lot to it but it works.  I love the creativity and simplicity of each piece in this space.  I also like the fact that each piece tells a story of an earlier time and place.
A nice old Italian marble sink and floating top hung together for the vanity.  Not a total match but again it follows the vibe of the space.  Accented with the modern, chrome wall mount faucet.
And finally the tub.  A relic from the 1800's originally fabricated out of wood and zinc and wrapped in stainless steel.

Pumpkin Room

A funky addition to any office.  They call this pod the Pumpkin Room.  The perfect place for that quick 5 second meeting or brainstorming session where you kick ass all day long.  A steel grid outlining this pumpkin shape is clad with polycarbonate, transparent panels and lit with fluorescent tube lighting.  You can also check this post over at Fred Flare.
