A week ago, we showed you a teaser video of the new Case Studyo project with Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson.

This incense burner called ‘Vibes melt down 2043’ will enhance your office, home, maybe even a public place. It’s meant to stimulate the mind and evoke the hallucinatory and enlightening moments that are around us at all times through life and death.

One of our favorite purchases from the weekend at the LA Art Book Fair was a copy of Picture Box Inc's (in conjunction with ForYourArt) wonderful book, "In the Good Name of the Company: Artworks and ephemera produced by or in tandem with the Colby Printing Company." Long an iconic visual look of Southern California that has traveled the globe, we have long admired the history of the Colby brand, and have wanted to see a nice comprehensive history of its aesthetic. And now there is one...

Portuguese architect Didier Faustino designed this house modeled on the form of an explosion for a series of Spanish dream houses to be built by French developer Chistian Bourdais. 'Similarly to the centre of the Big Bang the house appears to draw in as well as reflect the light at its core,' said the designers.' The floors cause the body to feel weightless due to a lack of traditional spatial references.'

In the design world competition is a constant, you're always competing with your peers and even yourself to do better. The Type Fight took a more light hearted approach to competition by pitting designers against each other and letting you decide who is best. The only constants are the letterforms each designer must turn into a typographic master piece. The Type Fight's counter part, aptly named the Heavyweight Print Shop, sell each of the master pieces that are chosen for cool 20 bucks, which isn't bad because they're only producing 25 of each.
