AirBnb Oslo Holmenkollen Ski design

Building extremely immersive brand experiences is the result of a combination between fusing the right physical and emotional elements. Take a look at Airbnb’s most recent work with interior professionals Melissa Hegge and Nina Holst, as they attempt to transform Oslo’s Holmenkollen Ski Jump to include a snazzy looking penthouse. The design direction takes inspiration from Nordic designs and incorporates a very exclusive rooftop terrace. The facade has a rather organic shape, leaving a very arresting impression under the light blue sky backdrop. With accommodations at a staggering 200 feet off ground, the layers of glass offers breathtaking view of the city. What a fantastic way to live! Check out these images of the beautiful interiors. Truly a work of art.

Beneath my skin

I love what I just saw. A post from DesignTaxi shared some really fascinating pictures from artist Danny Quirk. He has created a series of very realistic yet dimensional visuals on the human body. This seemingly artistic yet erratic paintings is a nice composition of latex, acrylic and markers. The result is real physical demonstration of human anatomy coming to life! The models had these medical illustrations on their body to help bring in a closer realistic view of our body. Extremely mind blowing visuals!

Dog Dream House

They say pets can possibly live better lives than us humans. Check out this swanky looking dog house! One of the most notably biggest dog event, Crufts, is held in Brimingham NEC where Samsung featured their ‘Samsung Dream Doghouse’. It showcases a lavishly designed kennel with awesome tech built in. We see a cool treadmill, some really nice dog wallpapers, a dog food server and even a Samsung tablet nicely mounted on its lush interiors. Such is the quintessential for all the ultimate and affluent dog lovers.

Responsive print ad?

To some people, this might seem a little overrated but I do think it is a rather smart idea from Ogilvy Portugal. Using just basic folding lines, creative work can illustrate the easy peasy way of making websites seemed so fun and responsive. This ad from Correio da Manhã emanates the level of responsiveness of their new website through basic traditional print. How cool is that? I guess it certainly helps to pique some one’s curiosity to actually want to visit the website. Interestingly, this is the sort of work that gets very low recall value but yet triggers high engagement. Nice.

Peekaboo!

We have seen how fashion retailers market their products the conventional way. Have you seen how clothes are marketed through digital engagements? Bonpoint, French luxury clothing had the idea of doing an engaging ad. With the idea of creating a digital and fun game, they introduced the peekaboo game. The interaction between the computer’s webcam and the microphone allows the user to play a peekaboo game. The children are outfitted with really interesting clothes. All you need to do is peekaboo! Check out the video!

Social heat lamp?

What emanates good spirit in the name of the Olympics? A sense of participation and challenge. This is seen in an unique yet engaging social heat lamp. With the help of MOST Creative Club, the Russian Olympic Committee created interesting heat lamps across Russia. People are free to approach the machine and be challenged to participate in several activities. In return, the lamp would generate heat at other lamps. In a way, you actually sweat it out to keep another party warm! Interesting idea that brings about bonding between people and of course, real fun!

Drone ambulance

An article on Businessinsider had me wondering why has such a brilliant invention taken this long? It is a known fact that ambulances frequently get stuck in jam especially in crowded cities like Singapore. During times of emergency, it is imperative to ensure clear traffic conditions under the behest of the ambulance. So, Argodesign, came out with the drone ambulance which aims at evacuating the victims from accidents in both congested cities as well as the more rural areas.

From Austin, Texas, the design firm aims to leverage on innovation to deliver results that no other clients could have imagine. Im seeing this idea as exemplary illustration of how our future would be. Not only does the drone not require a pilot, its mobility is almost undisrupted. The drone is also designed to manoeuvre easily through the cities.

Very cool invention that would potentially save the lives of many people.
