Gorgeous. See much more here.

Mobile Hospitality

The project mobile hospitality (Mobile Gastfreundschaft) pays attention to an important aspect of our design work – the responsibility and the self-initiative in public space. The city plays as a space a difficult role. On the one hand it does not belong to anyone, on the other hand it belongs to all, but it is merely used by us actively, as it was in former times. It has decreased to the background of our everyday activities. Responsibility for the outdoor space, for most of the residents stops at their garden fence. The project mobile hospitality starts just here.

New Moosach Bikes

The Dutch are at it again with an awesome new bike brand called Moosach Bikes. The marketing duo behind the brand decided to merge good design with a retro feel and Moosach was born. The company set out to make bikes based on vintage, road-style bike frames of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. They refurbish the frames they find and turn them into the new model with brand new parts, so each bike has history and a story to go with it.

Peepoo Bag by the Architect Anders Wilhelmson

Today, more than 2.6 billion people lack access to basic sanitation. At this very moment in time, 40% of the world’s population do not have even the simplest latrine available for their personal use.

Peepoo is a personal, single-use, self-sanitising, fully biodegradable toilet that prevents faeces from contaminating the immediate area as well as the surrounding ecosystem. After use, Peepoo turns into valuable fertilizer that can improve livelihoods and increase food security.

What a simple and great idea!
