Jan Korbes’ creates garbage architecture from discarded materials.
I don’t know what this is, but I like it.

Recovered Harbour Pole Staircase
Antique Flooring Staircase
Those spoons are rad.

As a fan of music I love this. And because I am a fan of recycled design, I am absolutely in love with this. Basically, the artist uses a vinyl cutter to cut grooves into CDs to that can play on record players. To me, it seems a little too good to be true without some kind of modification. I really really really would like to know just how good it sounds and if the rigid plastic of the cd would just tear up your needle. I need to get my hands on one. Thumbs up.

Now this is a crazy object. But a lot of fun! This object was created especially for me – for my deviant behavior. In order for this object to work someone needs to throw empty bottles against a cement backing. Breaking bottles can release a lot tension.
There are really two parts to this object: the Sharldery and the Shardalier. The Shardlery is like a factory. You throw in a bottle and glass shards are produced. The Shardalier catches the broken glass becoming a lamp the light of which shines through the glass shards. I’ve actually witnessed people hugging this product at parties. It’s a big “hit”.
Definitely a refreshing take on interactive furniture, and very very creative. I want one.

This ol contraption will turn old newspapers into bricks for firestarting. I would use it to make a mass of floating bricks and set them loose in a pond. If anyone has any experience with this thing, send me an email and let me know if the bricks it creates is hollow or solid.
