Think of it as a Hyundai around your wrist.

I love watches.  This is a fact known to anyone who has read my blog.  I have peppered these virtual pages with watches that I have wanted, admired or would sell my right hand for.  This watch may fit into the latter category. Selling for a wallet draining $15,000 this watch is for those rich […]

This Post Has Nothing to do with Architecture.

I know!  It has been a (long) while since my last post.  Work is getting busy, a good thing, but I have missed sharing a bit of myself online. So back to it.  And to refresh the blog I thought I would share something fun. I do have a beard so I know how warm […]

New! Hip! Wal-Mart!

Last week I attended an interesting event hosted by the Seattle chapter of The Retail Design Institute.  The event was about emerging design trends in retail.  Alison Embry Medina, Executive Editor of DDI Magazine, lead the discussion that was held at the beautiful NBBJ headquarters here in Seattle. The presentation was fantastic.  Alison was very […]

Falling In Love With Binary Code.

It’s sad really.  For the past year or so my heart has fallen for things that will never be developed, never know the touch of sunlight, the cool of rain.  Yes,  I am in love with Binary Code. My newest love is the Ferrari 612 GTO Concept.  Sasha Selipanov’s concept is truly a thing of […]

It is always the simplest ideas…

Simplicity.  It is what I find most interesting about modern design.  Take the Split Watch for example.  By simply twisting the watch 20 degrees on the band the watch is easier to read (for right-handed folks). Enjoy the simplicity and don’t kick yourself too hard for not thinking of it first.

Ok, a Rolex post…but it’s a really cool Rolex.

It has happened to us all.  You are at a coffee shop, the theater or in the car and *tingle* you have been hit by a huge magnetic field.  Damn!  There goes my watch! Worry no more. The new Rolex Milgauss is incredibly resistant to magnetic fields.  How?  The watch is covered in ferromagnetic alloys […]

A Link To The Past.

Like many of my age group, I own music on every media created. If I had to, and let’s hope I never have to, cull out my collection what would remain would be my electronic music and my records. While I love the clunky 8-track and the cassette is easy to store there is something […]

Forbes List of the Fastest Growing Retailers.

Forbes has released its top ten list of fastest growing retailers for 2010.  I always find this list interesting and a great snapshot of the buying habits of Americans.  I also think it will be a great indicator of what aspects of retail will lead the retail design recovery. Leading the pack in 2010 is […]

Spandex Bike Shorts Will Still Look Bad.

If you watch House Hunters or House Hunters International on HGTV you know that “they” have yet to produce a piece of exercise equipment that looks good in a home.  Without fail each house tour includes a quick peek into the bonus room or basement where these horrid dust collectors live never to be seen […]
