A few of us here in the office are in the process of buying some new furniture, and I know how i feel; I like things minimal but with a bit concept. Maybe I should go with this collection of spider furniture by designer Bruno Freire for Brazilian brand Oficina Polvo. The collection features an assortment of lamps, tables, desks, and even a chandelier.

Sometimes the idea of sticking a another boring cube into our coffee gets us down. Luckily, a designer by the name of Snow Violet created these brilliant skull and cross bones cubes so we can make our morning routine of staring into our coffee cup a bit more sinister... (if we can figure out where to get some)

Maybe this is because we are super excited about the new Arrested Development season, but anything with a banana right now is on our radar. Cleon Daniel has created this hybrid of pool and miniature golf with the Banana Pool Table, complete with yellow felt and 4 holes instead of 6. We say there is a new beer pongish game to be had here....

News broke last week that NYC-based fashion staple, Supreme, was suing women's fashion line, Married to the Mob, for a copyright infringement based around the logo/graphic "Supreme Bitch." What many in the art world already understood is that Barbara Kruger, now a professor at UCLA and world renowned conceptual artist, was, and we say this gently, robbed of her style by Supreme with their now iconic logo. Kruger would never go on record saying she created the idea of a red box with Futura Bold Oblique look, but, well, she did. This is our cover story with Kruger from November 2010.

On May 8, 1920, one of the most iconic and influential graphic designers, Saul Bass, was born. Creating posters and opening film sequences for classics like Pyscho, North By Northwest, Vertigo, Anatomy of a Murder, West Side Story, Cape Fear, Goodfellas, Casino, and countless more, we give a nod to the legend who passed away in 1996. Here is a collection of his great posters, and a few of our favorite opening title sequences... enjoy. Even Google got into the mix with a fantastic ode to Mr Bass on their search page...

From German design agency, Jung von Matt: "We designed special bowling balls together with famous spraygun artist Oliver Paass that look like cut-off heads. For more than three weeks he made detailed 360° layouts that were sprayed on standard bowling balls. In several German bowling alleys we swapped the standard balls for these special ones."
