Paintbrush Coat Hooks by Dominic Wilcox

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 02, 2011
A lot of our readers are artists themselves, and we thought, what a great idea for your home; paintbrush coat hooks. We found it high class to just have coat hooks, but Dominic Wilcox has taked the concept to a nice new level.

Car Culture: Ferrari Factory Tour

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 03, 2011
Robert Williams may be proud of us with this one. As you may or may not know, Juxtapoz was founded with a bit of car culture (we even made a book) and car art in our roots, and when we saw this Ferrari Factory Tour, we couldn't help but think that there was nothing more appropriate on the car culture front than this.

Ecohols by Jörn Beyer

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Colorful Coffins

Personally, the thought of being buried 6 feet under after my demise totally freaks met out, but this morning when I stumbled across these caskets I may have second guessed myself.

We are not going all pro-nuclear weapons here, but this is a well-designed concept for a table lamp. The lamp's surfaces were created using real fluid dynamics simulations, aka, it was not just a flash-in-the-pan creation. The piece was created by Veneridesign of London.
