TOKYO

Personal Tokyo of Damjan Cvetkov Dimitrov and Nina Geometrieva (Photo version / GIFs Version)."Tokyo, holy excrements from small undefined creatures! We’re there. First place we had on our list was Nakagin Tower.

Spending two whole days there, we finally learned the dread and discomfort of living in a capsule hotel. It was wonderful, apart from the occasional shakeup and earthquake panic you’d feel when your neighbour decides to move his capsule four floors up, at 5 AM. He was courteous enough to leave a box of chocolate with an apology to his neighbouring capsules."

Papa Palheta Brand Experience Kit by Foreign Policy

The must-read presentation of coffee bran Papa Palheta by Singapore-based studio Foreign Policy: "Taking their brand further to provide better user experience even online, the Papa Palheta Experience Kit is designed to reflect their philosophy of having strong coffee roots down to sustainability.

With meticulous consideration of the sensory elements within the kit, a card printed on recycled pulp paper made with blended coffee chaff (an underused by product of roasting coffee) prompts the user to repurpose it whether as a bookmark or thank-you card. Add-on inserts like a coffee connoisseur’s tasting notes record sheet; informative brewing guide that suggests the golden water-to-coffee ratio and a cake recipe card to create the perfect pairing with coffee, encourage the coffee drinker to explore the growing coffee culture. In contrast with the earth-tones of the paper stock, the color scheme of florescent orange and cobalt blue provides the pop of color, enlivening the common brown packaging of coffee"

Joyce Wang’s Hong Kong Restaurant Named World’s Best Interior of 2014

"At the INSIDE World Festival of Interiors, Joyce Wang‘s MOTT32 bar and restaurant in Hong Kong was officially named the best interior space of 2014. Located in a former storage facility, which reportedly once housed expensive family heirlooms for wealthy Chinese immigrants, MOTT32 is best described as an atmospheric underworld dining experience. Taking inspiration from the heritage of the site, the restaurant is filled with forgotten heirlooms, Chinese propaganda and industrial materials doubling as furniture and light fittings. Located underground, with no natural light, Joyce Wang embraced the constraints of the venue and used them to create a theatrical and exclusive experience. Delicate detailing was combined with raw materials, such as concrete and metals, to create an overall bold design that sees Western and Eastern influences come together." via Highsnobiety

Hyper Realism in a bowl by Keng Lye

Singapore-based artist Keng Lye meticulously produces three-dimensional works of art with acrylics and epoxy resin that lie somewhere between painting and sculpture. Using a technique originated by Riusuke Fukahori, Lye manages to produce the illusion of different animals swimming in water. The time-consuming process involves pouring resin into a bowl and then painting on top of it with acrylics, layer by layer. (via MMN)
