Japanese Lakeside House

This unusual property in Japan uses five interlocking levels to create multiple viewing platforms both inside and outside the property. Designed by architecture studio Sugawaradaisuke, this unique lakeside house is something truly refreshing and modern  imbued with a sense of freedom. The timber retreat features clever details such as a countertop that flows from the kitchen into the living room floor, and floors that double as furniture. There is also an unclear notion of where one room ends and another begins. There are also plenty of stairs from one platform to the next, lending the house a disjointed flow that somehow still works.

RING SOAP

We love a simple clever idea, Ring Soap is a ring shaped bar of soap that stays dry by hanging on a peg! The minimalist creation is by designer Sebastian Bergne, he was asked by a German brand to design a soap dish, and after much thought, he decided to redesign the soap instead. Ring Soap hangs on its peg and is always ready to use, remaining dry and therefore being consumed more slowly. And, it becomes a graphic element on the wall of your kitchen or bathroom. Cur...
