You may be asking yourself, why would I want a snow globe with a silo or 4 in the middle? That doesn't seem really wintery or nice to have out when grandma comes over. UK-based agency Dorothy created this No Globes snow globe to protest the building of dirty coal-fired power stations. Shake that globe, and black, disgusting dirt-filled remnants come out of the towers.

Leave it to Iceland to have serene beauty such as this. The design firm, Choi + Shine Architects, came up with this, The Land of Giants an attempt to transform "mundane electrical pylons into statues on the Icelandic landscape by making only small alterations to existing pylon design." These designs were submitted as a competition entry in March of 2008 to Landsnet, Iceland national power transmission company who was working in collaboration with the Association of Icelandic Architects.

After seeing the spectacle that was Damien Hirst's For the Love of God at the Tate Modern in London this past week, we sort of have a new appreciation for a good skull. Kelly Lamb's Skull Chandelier, although a tad gaudy and a bit of a tough sell for our dining room, we definitely like the composition of it.

If you happen to have a floor in which you can find a way to draw or doodle upon it, may we suggest the creation of Canada-based designer, Philippe Malouin, the Ballpoint Stool. With transparent design, and the ability to draw as you scoot, your daily doings can be a creative project.

One thing we have learned (of many) as we have been traveliing through Sri Lanka this past week is how ugly and eye-soring a power line can be in lush, beautiful environments. That is why we love the Deer shaped hydro tower concept designed by Moscow-based Design Depot.

Who says you can't be a kid again? Here we have a custom made, touch sensitive Question Block Lamp inspired by the iconic Super Mario Bros Nintendo game. The lamp is 6 inches by 6 inches by 6 inches, made of laser-cut plexiglass and lit from inside by energy-efficient LED. How does it work? Hit the bottom of the cube and you'll get both light and the classic coin noise.
