Alexis Marcou caught my eye as I was browsing Fubiz. This illustrator catches movement on the page so well. I love the sketching and minimal colour used over the photography to create this gorgeous geometric effect. Fascinating illustrator. I especially love these sketches.

Enter the Envelope Desk designed by Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber. The front section “tilts up to 7 degrees in order to maintain sightline with a computer monitor or laptop”. There’s a matching chair, too! More at Herman Miller.
Lovely, simple posters by graphic designer Patrik Svensso.

Pre-fabricated housing is still going strong, my favourite of which being shipping container houses which I blogged about in November, last year.
Dornob just released a lovely collation of some of the most inspiring ones out there.

Dutch artist Ronald Van Der Meijs has created ‘Parthenocarp’, representative of the changing landscape of an urban zone in The Netherlands that shifted from farming to industrial to a ‘downtown centre’.
The installation is comprised of three large-scale musical instruments with cucumber plants embedded in their structure. The sound these instruments make is affected by the growth of these plants, particularly the length of the vegetable.
And so the tone of each instrument mutates as the cucumbers grow.
All the info over at Designboom.
This elephant, designed and created by Javier Requejo is not specially crafted out of some form of autumn ivy as you may have imagined. It’s a combination of 8 months, 150,000 knots of polypropylene and a metal skeletion. Do I want it? Hell yes.
