By now readers of TWOM must be thinking I’m obsessed with bookshelves, an obscure obsession. We’ve shown you the bookcase bed:

the staircase library:

and the slanting legoesque shelf:

And now, here’s a really surreal shelf to go with your Dalis and Hirsts:

Introducing the Invisible bookshelf. Nifty way to make your books magically floats on air.

The downside? I seriously doubt their ability to hold up even 5 large format hardback photobooks or D&AD annuals.

…this mirror will be right perfect for you.

The 360 mirror will allow your vain self to look at yourself from all angles.

I foresee many creative uses for this little devil…

(actually, if you look at the reflections, they make absolutely no sense)

Swedish designers Smånsk sure didn’t think so. So they came up with the Skew bookcase.

I think males already do spend more time in front of the mirror and more money on cosmetics than women nowadays. But thanks to this mirror, I shall outdo my partner, with great ease, in the spending-time-in-front-mirror event.

That’s what you’d get if you had this Godzilla of a sound system at home. Yes, this is in someone’s home. Or a warehouse on his yard. Check out the madness:

…which folks around here seem to like. So with that in mind, here’s another little something you can add to your wonderfully lavish, if somewhat alien-like bathroom: the Smith Newman & Touch 360 Studio Ripple faucet.

With a touch screen, I mean touch sensitive pad and a magnetic ball that controls the temperature depending on how far off you roll the ball away from the center. The water then flows out of the two ducts, meeting in the middle and churning out the perfect temperature.

bookstairs.jpgDespite the fact that I am on my laptop almost 24/7, I still love books. As a child I had sets and sets of encyclopedias, most of them from Disney, but still – knowledge is knowledge. They used to be stacked neatly from A-Z on 3- or 4- level shelves. From there, my obsession with arranging things started. Even now, I categorise my books (or stack upon stack of paper) and they’re usually alphabetical in order. But the most annoying thing is living within London area, you don’t have that much space. Indeed, living in Tokyo, I have less space there. Thus with the lack of space, sometimes you have nowhere to “display” your books and you’re forced to keep some and you never know which ones to keep and which ones to display. And the shelves take up so much space and bla bla bla. But one guy figured the best of solving this, and I love it. It’s so simple and yet so easily overlooked. And it’s the best use of space I’ve seen so far.

There so now I’ve let out another secret obsession of mine. My birthday’s next week by the way ;)

Thanks for the pic, boing boing.

Lookee what I came across! Great idea for a start-up designers’ studio (or photographer etc).2220274594_467fa7d4ae.jpg

And this is how he’d done it:

If you thought that was amazing, check out his whole flat transformation, from an old, run-down flat, to a sexy minimalist, modern interior. Respect!

Thanks, boing boing and akame

Serious loadda crapper

We’ve heard of stories of rich people having weird toilets and oil-rich kings building their toilets with gold. But how about spending thousands on YOUR toilet? Meet the Toto MS990CGR-12 Neorest Toilet. The name suggests something that can fly to the International Space Station, dock, upload supplies in a matter of seconds and come back down to Earth again. Of course, you’d have to take away the word “toilet”.

Apparently the lid opens as I close-in on it. I wonder what if someone was “in a rush” and the toilet is ever-so-elegantly slowly and gently lifting its head and this poor soul is there probably crapped all over the place.

Then you have an auto flush. What you need is vocal capabilities, like Garfield’s talking weighing scale, and you have Comedy Central. “WOO HOO! Lay off the tikka masala, dude!”

It sports CycloneFlush (TM) technology and it “delivers higher performance than anything you’ve ever experienced.” Okay, first of all, just say it as it is: “Drowns all your shit, no matter how large.” And secondly: I’ve never really experienced a flush.

Best of all, is it has a manual override button, which is “discreet”. Right, at this point, I am helplessly tearful from the laughter and I can barely type. I have tapped “delete” at least ten times just trying to type this sentence. “Discreet manual override button”? So you can manually lift the toilet lid and flush! Oh my aching jaws, my cheeks!

Please, just visit this page and laugh to your heart’s content.
