Imagine your food looked so glorious, it had its own spotlight. That’s what Solaris is, anyway. It also does the job of keeping your food warm, and your hands too, when you tilt it on its side, but I’d much rather make it look like the heavens are shining a light on my wonderful treat!

A few years ago, we featured Spanish photographer Chema Madoz and his surreal, black and white photos. Born in 1958, and with several collections to his name, Madoz is famously coy about his pictures’ aim, even when asked directly:
“The fact is that I don’t give any thought to the reaction they’ll cause in the viewer,” Madoz told Bookstyle. “I look for images that move me and touch me, that make me feel that I’m doing something different which I wasn’t aware of. I want to be able to stand in front of my pictures and feel that I can communicate with them. If a picture says something to me, I feel confident that there may be other people who will [...]
I don’t advocate any person smoking, but if you must… use the Moonlight concept! It’s a sleeve for cigarettes that allows the users to set their lit cigarette anywhere, even on paper! Made of a double-hollow casing, it collects ash to empty later. Best of all, it makes cigarettes completely fire-proof!

It’s monocoque frame is specialized to give it not only a sleek, polished look but also to provide racers with cutting edge aerodynamics.

It’s difficult to get a tattoo these days without it looking like somebody else’s. But Ukrainian artist Rita “Rit Kit” Zolotukhina has found a solution with these delicate “botanical fingerprint” tattoos. And as you can see from these pictures, the result is certainly unique.
The idea was born from a simple desire to feel more connected to nature. “I’m a nature lover,” the artist told Illusion Magazine. “So most of my sketches are related to flora. But the more I drew, the more I wanted something fresh and native, to feel the plants without any steps in between.” The artist dips real leaves and flowers into stencil ink before placing them onto the client’s skin. The process [...]

The Nautilus designed by Mihir Gurjar takes every boy’s billionaire fantasy of owning a yacht, and combines it with the symbol of a gentleman, the [...]
Civitacampomarano is a small village in the province of Campobasso with just 400 souls, mainly elderly. In this village, rich in folk traditions, the Internet is a partially unknown world: mobile phones have difficulty working and a data connection is practically nonexistent.
