Ryan and Joe of Suus took their electrified Honda C90 Motorcycle ($NFS) to Deus Ex Machina's 3rd Bike Build Off and came home with a first-place trophy. Their bike won from a field of about 40 entrants. They started with one goal. To build a bike "that didn't look awkward or unbalanced." They also didn't want the fact it was electric to be obvious. They took a Honda C90, along with a scooter frame, and some damaged electric parts and came up with the work of art you see here. The bike combines cutting edge technology and retro design to great effect. It doesn't make use of a gearbox and instead uses high efficient motors. Fewer moving parts means it's reliable despite its age. This lightweight, nippy little cycle is perfectly suited to whizzing around tight city streets. Able to make laborious journeys more enjoyable and more eco-friendly.
This isn't your mother's daybed. CB2 is the modern arm of Crate and Barrel and besides having a brand new collaboration with the guys from The Hillside, they also create some pretty awesome furniture. One of their pieces that I like is the CB2 Lawndale Leather Daybed ($1800). Measuring just under 80 inches it would make a perfect accent piece to any room. It's obvious to see the Midcentury influence on this piece. From the metal frame to the low profile, it's screaming to be the only item in a room.The Lawndale is made from rich buffalo leather from rural India. The leather has been dyed and tumbled for a soft, supple feel. It'll seem like you've had it forever and it'll continue to patina making it one of your favorite pieces for years to come.

A guy named Till Konneker moved into a small apartment studio without any storage and the rest is just another great example of really good design. Till created The Living Cube ($3200+). The cube was made to store his record collection, TV, Clothes and Shoes. On the top was a bed and inside additional storage. What a great idea. Just think how much furniture you can get rid of if you had one of these in your room. Till is now offering these units for sale. He is offering a Mini Unit, an Urban Unit and a Living Wall that is priced based on the elements you want. All of the Cubes are fully customizable and available in several finishes.
