Nestrest

Can I live here please? Designers Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety created this “Nestrest” for Dedon. The closest thing we have here in Vancouver are these little guys.

  • These look really comfy but I might get motion sickness if I strung one up on a tree.

  • i totally want one..

  • lapetitefaon

    I WANT ONE!

  • kgumball

    I want to have sweet soft sex in one of those.

  • But how would you get in the first one without getting wet?

    • Get wet and hop in, problem solved. yeah?

    • ummm

      It looks fairly close to land, so I’m assuming you’d rotate the nest towards you, hop in, and it counters back towards the water.

  • I’m going to build a treehouse and live in one of those….

  • Ça m’en prend absolument un, Montréal centre-ville, ce sera épique

    I absolutely need one of those, in Montreal Midtown it’s going to be epic

  • How come the first guy’s so dry?

  • Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety give us this great ideas for our relax.

  • want want want.

  • Jawsh

    The first image is a bad example.
    Although.. they look rad, i want one!

  • slobberchops

    shag pod!

  • Bram

    Sadly, i think they are way too expensive for me.

  • Love the earthy outer space vibe.

  • Terrel

    I want one too!!! This is absolutely amazing

  • In my opinion, for those who care about rain, it may be easy to put a piece of waterproof cover.
    Anyway… I want one, above a torrent…

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article in the comment section below and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
