SS awesome

Corvette patina at Foster city cars and coffee

Love the intake duct on the fender

Honda EV sport sketch


Do the design now because the current design of Fuel Cell Clarity and Odyssey are shit.

Ferrari son Dino


Brown and Tan goes well.  Rear branding graphic could use some help but Dino originally was a separate brand as an entry class to the Ferrari hence no Ferrari or horse logo, IIRC.

Arco chair


Nice fabric wrapped simple chair.  Surprised no one used this name before 

TWA HOTEL


From Uncrate: Housed in the former TWA Flight Center, the TWA Hotel will transport JFK travelers back to 1962. The Eero Saarinen-designed terminal has been closed since 2001, but the beloved landmark is returning in the form of 505 boutique accommodations. The guest rooms will be housed in a new construction in the rear, while the original terminal — which consists of interiors designed by mid-century legends Charles Eames, Raymond Loewy, and Warren Platner — is getting restored back to its former glory. The plans also include eight restaurants, conference and event space, a 10,000 square foot public observation deck, and a museum that will highlight the Jet Age, Trans World Airlines, and Midcentury Modern design.

Oh, OK neon sign


Samsung Gear IconX


Wireless headset to counter AirPods from Apple.  Wish someone beats the feel of AirPods case which is meticulously good.

Tepui SkyCamp


Typically they are on the rooftop of the car so overhang portion is supported by the weight of the car and ladder but this permanent solution is just by the ladder so looks tippy.  

GoPro Hero6 and 360 Fusion sport camera


Could have been simpler and what's up with the premature Zaha kinks, Daniel?

Fast Forward


Car book with Bertone Stratos zero by maestro Gandini on the cover 

1st proto of Lancia Stratos by Gandini at Bertone


White with better rear tail light detail

Good article on Gandini and Lancia Stratos by Bertone came about

New Toto washlet toilet


Paid attention to the back hence the last use case scene which cracked me up.  $6K is a lot but want.  Wonder how they route intake water without messing up the rear view.

Amazon echo new line up is confusing


Bjarke Ingels Group / BIG Lego house


BIG is becoming hot

Atari striking back


Soon after the original Blade Runner released, the Atari, Pan Am and many brand appeared in it went under.  Now the new Blade Runner 2049 is coming back, so does Atari.

Nougat


I don't even know how they are called but this Nougat looking mixed material are trendy but me not a fan.

Zaha on retractable theater seating


She was a good product designer as well.
