Formerly an actual hardware store, Bondi Hardware takes its aesthetic inspiration from the DIY haven that occupied its space for 30 years. The main menu exhibits a keen understanding that the appetite is not something you just dump something on, it’s a series of tubes. The Bar Book cogs prevent any clogs. - Art of the Menu

I absolutely love these bar cars designed by Neil Hubet. They are so beautiful and tie in really well with a project I am undertaking at the moment. I want a set myself but cant find them anywhere! Gorgeous.
The Brief: "It always rains in your country. Make a poster for visitors to the UK

For the past few months Paige Smith of A Common Name has been installing colorful geodes within the gaps of crumbling buildings and other public infrastructure on the streets of L.A. Each piece is site-specific and made from carefully cut and painted paper. I think it would be pretty awesome to stumble onto one of these in the wild without knowing anything about it. You can see a full gallery of all the sedentary formations as well as a map of their locations over at A Common Name!
