This is your Life: the Holstee Manifesto in Motion

The Holstee Manifesto is a call to action to live a life full of intention, creativity, passion, and community. Now, the sustainable lifestyle goods company brought the words to life with this video. They explain:

The LifeCycle Film came about as a desire to bring the energy and passion behind the Manifesto to life through something we love–biking. As we seek to live mindful lifestyles that leave a positive impact on the people and world around us, biking has become a passion that is much more than a transportation alternative. It is a way of fully experiencing the city we love and all of its details.

What would Jenga Game looks like blown up to House Dimensions

This wooden house by Sou Fujimoto Architects (Japan) reminds me a bit of the famous skill game “Jenga” but is certainly a great concept where the room’s functionality is recreated every time you use it.

There are no separations of floor, wall, and ceiling here. A place that one thought was a floor becomes a chair, a ceiling, a wall from various positions. The floor levels are relative and spatiality is perceived differently according to one’s position. Here, people are distributed three-dimensionally in the space. This is a place like an amorphous landscape with a new experience of various senses of distances. Inhabitants discover, rather than being prescribed, various functionalities in these convolutions.

Sustainable Business Cards

The German designers initiative S•E•E•D•REBELS (“sustainable • ethical • ecological • design”) gives us another great example that business cards can be both resource-saving and creative. Stamped on cardboard, ink made of paint leftovers and self-made, the cards are a real eye-catcher. Well done!


One Business Card For All

Answering the question “How can we use less material for our business cards?” in order to preserve natural ressources, Antrepo Design Industry uses the same business card for all its members. This does not only help to protect the environment, but also brings a personal touch to their business cards by handwriting the personal information. In my opinion definitely a concept to copy!
