The bent shape of the toaster creates an iconic V shape toast and the Y shaped knife, solves the “double dipping” problem. The two wings can be used for individual ingredients so that you don’t have to dip the same knife that you dipped into jam for applying butter. Moreover, the center of the toast breaks easily into a sandwich, making your breakfast routine crispier! Such a functional and elegant design!
Sweet potato dinosaur, eggplant whale, bread turtle, pepper scorpion, each piece is totally unique and will definitely bring a smile to your face.
Inspired by the Lotus flower which is known for its ability to emerge above the murky waters pure and clean, Hrama designed a futuristic “City in the Sky” where gardens and oases soar far above the congestion and pollution that at times mars magnificent cities such as London and New York. The City in the Sky features glass and steel structures that support reflective ponds and sprawling lawns. Groves of trees offer a calm respite from the chaos far below.
Initially, the architect’s work was intended for Megatropolis, a project involving several artists and companies to build a “future mega developed city”. Although it is realistically presented, the concept doesn’t intend to be realistic in terms of structure-engineering or real living environment. It is an artistic imagination of a tranquil hideaway from the stress of everyday life. “City in the Sky” is truly a breathtaking futuristic Eden, and if you want, take a look at the 3D tour of the conceptual design in a video format.
These portraits are created entirely using other humans as ‘pixels’ and the results are pretty amazing. Most of the people used to create this project are outfitted in dark clothing to contrast easily with the stark white ground. But I believe Craig must do some digital editing around the lip areas since the shadow of poeple there are also red. But anyway, it is pretty unique to paint person with person. Up to now, Craig has created paintings of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Elvis Presley and also the Statue of Liberty.
The idea behind this project is to convince people “Creativity is all around us. We can get creative with anything, even with limited tools, and that like a child, we’ll see joy and fun even in ordinary, everyday items.”
