my vote for best-designed-product is the Tanqueray bottle. I wish I could have one sitting on every surface of my home. I hate those new commercials with that black Austin Powers character.

Any one in particular? I like the Tanq Ten bottle, it has sort of Art Deco/Metropolis/future with flying cars look.

Seriously, it makes me want to buy a white cat to pet while it sits in my lap.

And I hate cats.

A prefab, lower-into-place rooftop lair, sort of an update to the 1960's "Futuro House"


Loftcube




Artist live/work lofts in london made out of old shipping containers:






ContainerCity




M-CH. or Micro Compact Home. Interesting idea for short-term living that incorporates my love for maximizing small spaces with built-in and stowable furniture (like on a yacht).



M-CH



Zenkaya, another pre-fab lower-into-place.

Loft cubes are bitchin'. I want to put one in my back yard to use as an office.

Those would seem particularly useful in Hong Kong where the smallness of the space doesn't come close to the tackiness and prison lobby feel of the halls.

I'd be concerned about the air conditioning.

A little piece of a NatGeo special on modern Japanese architecture, maximizing space, and the design techniques used to make small spaces feel bigger. I watched most of the special on Friday. It was awesome. Its called Tokyo:Living Small In The Big City. If it comes on again, check it out!

My new place is similar to the penguin house, but not as cool looking on the outside. Its fairly small but the ceilings are more than three meters up and I have two meter tall sliding glass windows on one wall that are topped by windows that reach the ceiling. It really makes the place feel that much bigger.
