There is a lot that goes into creating the perfect pictures of our products. We use some beautiful furniture and props in our shoots, but sometimes we have to get a little more creative to get that perfect photo.
We enlisted the help of artist Ryan Bradburn to create some custom pieces for our Hexagon and Collide photos. On his blog, he shares progress shots of the hexagon-shaped light box along with the melting table from Collide.
Enter our DesignCLASH contest today for a chance to win this one-of-a-kind table!

You know one of the annoying things about riding a bike? Bike helmets. Yes, they keep your head from getting smashed on the ground, but they take away that wind-in-your-hair feeling, not to mention, they are not comfortable. Luckily, two Swedish women have developed a remarkable solution: the invisible bike helmet.
Tired of strapping ugly, uncomfortable styrofoam-and-plastic turtle shells to their heads, the pair came up with a pretty revolutionary solution that does manage to give you full head protection without, remarkably, wearing anything on your head.
I’ll keep you in suspense of how this invisible helmet actually works. Watch the video below to find out!
CCTV out of China aired network promo videos that featured human motion translated into digitally sculpted objects like steel, water, and wood. The clips were created by Taiwan design house JL Design and KORB.
While skyscrapers may be adding “vanity height” to be named tallest, there is a new trend on the horizon: being named skinniest.
105-111 West 57th Street, currently in development by JDS Development Group, would be the skinniest skyscraper in the world.
In a recent article on Yahoo! News, architects and developers discuss how slender buildings are becoming the new way to go in skyscrapers, especially in New York City. “Land is very scarce, especially in the most desirable parts in the city,” says Manhattan real estate developer Michael Stern. “That’s why you’re seeing this trend of taller buildings being built on smaller parcels of land.” Stern’s real estate firm is working on a project located in midtown Manhattan that, if all goes according to plan, will be the future home of the skinniest skyscraper in the world. The building will sit on a lot just 60 feet wide, but will soar to an incredible height – taller than the rooftop of the Empire State Building.
Do you think skinny skyscrapers will become the new norm in the world’s largest cities?
