Talk about giving your room some space, might as well go full galaxy in your office or room or house. Enter the design group, Schönstaub. "Schönstaub is a young design-team from Zurich. The two founders and designers Nadja Stäubli and David Schönen met each other in 2010 while studying at the University of Arts in Zürich. A joint project was the launching idea for a creative cooperation, which culminated in the foundation of Schönstaub."

And what a beautiful book this is. AMMO Books has just published perhaps one of the most stunning books we have seen all year, Eames: Beautiful Details, one that we are very happy ended up in our offices yesterday. Not only an in-depth, 400+ page look into their innovative and groundbreaking furniture design, Beautiful Details covers Charles and Ray Eames' extensive exploration in textiles, product, graphic design, toys, film, and photography.

We are to call these Superhero Mosiacs, and to us, these seem to take the gamer in all of us and give us something that is totally of no use but to make your partner in life annoyed that you want a Mario or Iron Man mosaic in the living room window. And that is why we love these. From the mind of R. Evan Daniels of Martian Glass Works, available on Etsy.

Somewhere, Mario Puzo is very proud of the Horse Head Pillow Case. For those of you that love the Godfather, you know that this is a fun revenge-light gag gift. But for those of you who may be dealing with someone who doesn't know the Godfather, this may ruin a first date and, um, trip to the bedroom.

The series of erotic plates with 'Clodomiro' is the brainchild of photographer Miro Zagnoli and his daughter, illustrator Olimpia Zagnoli. The duo have created a family-run online shop that features everyday objects which appeal to their taste. Their first project is a series of fine bone china plates with erotically-inspired imagery, conceptualized in Milan and produced in Stoke-On-Trent in the UK.

You have to ask yourself, how much do you want the 1980s in your life? And when you see that someone, in this case, MyBurningEyes from Deviant Art, turning an old Nintendo Entertainment System console into a fully functioning toaster, you know there is a passion for 8-bit that runs so deep in the creative community.

We don't normally marvel at swimming pools on this site, but when we saw this one today, we couldn't help but think this was the swimming pool of Bruce Wayne type parameters. At the Holiday Inn Shanghai Pudong Kangqiao (yes you read it right, the Holiday Inn) there resides a glass bottomed pool, 24-stories high. Yes, you can see what imminent death looks like while in swim trunks.

Every so often, we like to check in and look at the work of Thomas Keeley, who was featured in our magazine in February 2009, but always has been a touchstone to us in the world of viral, bizarre sculpture art. He takes the most mundane of household objects and turns them into reimagined sculpture art and makes them come alive with personality.

We are going to be honest; this could potentially be the best invention we have seen in a long time. Some cure diseases, others find ways to artistically make sure you can eat cookies and donuts seemlessly with your coffee and tea. Pure genius. Pure ingenuity. We may order 10.

As you know, we are magazine people. We print a magazine, we read magazines, we love the physicality of it all. So when we saw this Magazine Rack Chair, designed by South Korean designer, Seung Han Lee, we were sold in the idea. A clever way to store, display, and house your magazine collection, and from the looks of it, quite easy to get to your rags when you are just sitting around.
