Universal leg system, by Jakob Schenk.  “TICK is a universal table leg system which can be applied to a variety of board materials allowing you the space for individuality and creativity. A bent metal wire structure, similar to a over-dimensional paper clip clamps to any board and transforms it within a few seconds into a unique table without the use of skrews and tools”

Summertime? Countryside? Dream? Reality? Childhood? Infinite fields and forests? “A Perfect Day, Elise” are series of photographs by Tereza Vlkova showing young women who seek to transcend the landscape in which they find themselves, levitating as an exaltation.  Tereza Vlkova was born in 1983 in Vsetiy city, the Czech Republic.

MY FAVORITE LITTLE GREEN BAG

“Long before the green-minded hip began toting these fishnet shopping sacks whilst touring organic foodmarts, the USSR had developed the archetype — the amazing avoska. Extremely long lines were commonplace and a score of good groceries was rare, so avoskas were essential, with their magical capability to collapse, unfold, and hold stockpile-bound bounties. Image Courtesy Michael Idov.” from Made in Russia: Unsung Icons of Soviet Design

HEIRLOOM STRAWBERRIES

wild heirloom strawberries, zemlyanika,  design squish blog

Wild strawberries grown in our backyard in Brooklyn this summer. Last year’s photos of wild strawberries: http://www.blog.designsquish.com/wild-strawberries

“Evidence from archaeological excavations suggests that wild strawberry has been consumed by humans since the Stone Age. It was widely cultivated in Europe until the 18th century, when it began to be replaced by the garden strawberry, which has much larger fruit and showed greater variation, making them better suited for further breeding.”
