New Models Of Suspended Tents That Let You Sleep Among The Trees

Published by:

Tent company Tentsile recently added three new models to its range of suspended tents.

It revealed Trillium, a small, stackable, versatile three-person hammock that can sleep up to three persons, Vista, a two-layer tree tent, and the biggest tent in the range, Trilogy – a massive communal shelter capable of holding six people, with three separate sleeping areas and a central canopy.

In 2014, Tensile revolutionized the world of camping by unveiling a suspended, portable tree houses – the Tentsile Tree Tent.

Tensile was invented by designers Alex Shirley-Smith and Kirk Kirchev in 2012, and picked up the 2015/2016 IPSO BrandNew award. As part of its environmental initiative, it also plants three trees for every tent bought.

I Turn Random Coffee Stains Into Monsters

Published by:

Hey there, you little bored pandas,

Once upon a time there was a little copywriter (that is me, Stefan), who spilled a cup of coffee. What emerged from the depth of the darkest espresso available was a small monster. It looked at me and said: “Draw me, draw me, draw meeee!”

And then I drew. The next day I thought “Well, I could do it daily, just to be creative every day.” So I took a spoon and spilled some coffee on paper. My colleagues looked at me the way people look at people who go completely nuts. Well, they didn’t know.

Since then, after more than 480 coffee-monsters, I use better paper, some of the best coffee and some cool tools to make the monsters more perfect. Also, I write little stories for every single one which makes them a little more worthwhile. And the best part is: It makes people happy!

My favorite moment up until now was, when someone wrote me, that the monsters make her happy everyday. This is so cheerful and because of messages like that I do it again and again. It never gets old for me, because a spill is never the same. The coffeemonsters are my way of expressing my love for comics, coffee and randomness. So here they are, feel free to tell me what you think. :)

Monster #468

For monster Jim there was only one thing going to be the peak of the week. The search for some cattle and eating it as a small snack.

Monster #432

Fiiiiiiiiiireeeeeee! This monster is clearly on fire. It has a burning arm and a flame as legs. It will roast it’s prey right away. Muhahaha!

Monster #480

This monster is so sweet, it would just eat you right away. And it really could because its friggin 30ft high and its preferred munchie are “humans”.

Monster #275

One morning coffee-frog Paul had to cross a road. And because the cars were fast that morning, he had to dance like he never did before to avoid them. Schubidu, like germans would say.

Monster #219

While Bobby was spectating what was going on behind his back, he decided to take a look on what was lying in front of him.

Monster #282

It’s like men watching beautiful women. Sometimes the eyes just pop out. Luckily people are no monsters and it doesn’t happen to them for real like it happens to this monster here.

Monster #447

The official @btconf monster!

Monster #479

Jumping around with Leo! Whoooo.

Monster #403

coffee-stains-drawings-monsters-stefan-hingukk-16

It tried to get up early but was late anyways. Argh!

Monster #19

Monster #346

Jumping on one finger. I wanna see you pull that off!

Monster #456

The sleep embraced him for too long. Almost four hours passed since he took the one-hour-sleeping-as-deep-as-a-crocodile-pills. But little did he know that the effect on coffeemonster-crocodiles was even more heavy.

Monster #466

The coffee went gone too fast and then it just happened out of nowhere. Fishorman lost his heart and tried to hold it in his chest. But he lost and the coffee went on without him but with his heart.

Monsters #477

Here is a piggy monster, ready to fetch a to be thrown ball. Go, piggie. Go!

Monster #343

4 eyes are better than two – because hunting humans is hard. Even for monsters like this one!

Monster #223

A little four-eyed coffeemonster playing with it’s small dog-monster. I bet it’s got an eye on everything.

Monster #435

This monster clearly has got a message for you: Fu!

Beautiful Houses: Quinta da Baroneza

Published by:

Today we will show you a gorgeous house in Sao Paulo, Brazil, a project by Candida Tabet Arquitetura. This house is breathtaking! Amazing views, great layout, beautiful materials and spaces. This is the perfect place to enjoy nature and feel inspired. Take a look.

Make sure to check out Candida Tabet Arquitetura website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week. :)

Description from the architects: Characterized by huge spans and minimum support points, the Quinta da Baroneza house architectural equation could be solved thanks to industrially cultivated, laminated and processed Eucalyptus Grandis wood. This allowed the house to be composed by concrete-free floor and ceiling slabs simply supported by laminated wood beams.
Extra sunlight was invited into the house through openings created by detaching the horizontal planes from the vertical ones. An indoor walkway connects the master bedrooms and reveals the living room below.
From the North facing spaces one can observe the splendid landscape in an inviting area under a sun filtering wood lattice panel.
