I've always wondered how it really feels like to live in an igloo. Call it a childhood dream, but I'm sure a lot of you folks out there share the same dream. But what's more intriguing about an igloo is the way it's constructed. Granted, we can't exactly term an igloo 'home', but I thought it's kinda fun to know more about it - even if you're not an Eskimo.

I personally admire the works of contemporary Japanese designers like Torafu Architects and Takashi Sugimoto of Super Potato. Many Japanese are such creative people, no doubt about it. This foldable seating system is further proof of that. By the way, should you not find the piece of furniture interesting, there's a chance you might still be entertained by the designer's antics. Call it creative antics.

The recently concluded Lightouch design competition, held in partnership with Flos, saw many bright ideas coming from designers in Singapore, China, New Zealand and the U.S etc.

Do you love vintage stuff? With a twist, I mean. The classical antique bookshelf gets a modern touch, thanks to Singapore designer Jaren Goh.

What designs are gonna be over in 2008? Plenty, according to Penelope Green of The New York Times. (P.S: Oops! That cowhide's in the list!)
