Poolside by Gray Malin

Shot at the le Méridien Ra Beach Hotel & Spa along the coast of Spain, ‘Poolside’ takes us back to the Mediterranean glamour of the 1960’s. Photographer Gray Malin has designed 1,000 inner tubes within the pristine pool waters, arranging them in eye-catching, neon-hued compositions. Candy-colored pink, hot orange, lemon yellow, baby blue and black striped lifesavers float in varied patterns, sometimes briefly interrupted by a sunbather or swimmer. source : dezeen

Gustavo Salmeron’s Madrid Loft

Spanish actor Gustavo Salmeron had a very clear idea of what he wanted when he set out to design his home in Madrid, a mix between New York, Berlin and Brazil.
Salmeron stripped the 1,937 square ft space of anything that was not structural and achieved a truly raw space which he then converted into an open loft with 2 bedrooms and an office. source : trendland

Beautiful Elliptical Residence by Fran Sylvestre Arquitectos Valencia

In a suburban region of Valencia, Spanish practice Fran Silvestre Arquitectos has designed an elegant family dwelling that takes a profoundly elliptical form. Named ‘Balint House’, the residence boasts a continuous sweeping facade that not only encloses the building, but also disguises the visual impact of the two-storey property. source : designboom

The Amazing Sand-Gift Box by Alien & Monkey

Barcelona-based design workshop Alien and Monkey has created an intriguing, eco-friendly packaging that is made using “one of earth’s most abundant natural resources, sand”—to get to what is inside, one would have to destroy the packaging completely.

By using traditional ceramic technique, ordinary sand is mixed with other natural minerals, pressed tightly together and dried—no glue or resin is used to hold the sand packaging together.

A gift can be sealed within this packaging, and the recipient crumbles it to reveal what it holds—according to its creators, “Destroying the packaging during its opening provides a unique sensory experience and creates a long-lasting memory for the person who discovers the gift.”  via design taxi.com
