Quaint Tiny Home Trailer

We’ve seen a lot of tiny homes over the years, but what really sets this one apart is the seamless blending of the old and the new. The French company La Tiny House designed their creation based on the classic Airstream trailer, which is why they name it the Tiny Stream house.

Gorgeous Furniture Made From Fallen Tree Branches

There are a lot of ways to get “back to nature” some of which are readily apparent, while others are more unique. The beautiful furniture pieces made by Sebastian Errazuriz, a NYC-based designer from Chile, certainly fall into the latter category. He uses fallen tree branches to make bookshelves, tables, and more, while the idea behind his work is to recycle the wood in its natural shape, rather than processing it into some new and unrecognizable form.

Downsizing to a Mobile Office

Downsizing makes a lot of sense not just for home owners, but also for business owners. The same question applies to both, namely how much space do we really need to live a good and productive life? The architectural firm Studio106 from New Zealand was recently faced with this question, when the renewal of their 1,022 sq ft (95 sq m) office space came up for review. Upon thorough consideration, they opted not to renew the lease, instead designing and building a mobile tiny office, which measures only 97 sq ft (9 sq m). […]

Innovative Alternative Housing Solution for the Homeless

Homelessness is a broad and complex issue, but there is no arguing that addressing the basic need for shelter is one of the top priorities when trying to solve it. Bas Timmer, a designer from Holland, has come up with an innovative potable shelter for the homeless. It’s called Sheltersuit and it’s basically a shelter that can also be used as a jacket. Bas created it in association with Alexander de Groot, and the main inspiration was a friend’s father who died living on the streets. […]
