If you long to escape from every day life and enjoy some peace without impacting the planet then the Ecocapsule ($TBA) is just the ticket! Expertly designed by Nice Architects to be a completely self-sustaining portable home, with an integrated turbine and solar panels. It may look compact, but inside you'll find plenty of storage space, a functional contemporary kitchenette, a work/dining area, a comfortable folding bed, toilet and a soothing warm shower. The price of the Ecocapsule will be announced some time in the fourth quarter of 2015 and will be available for purchase during the same period.
So we just did an article on the beautifully designed Sol Duc Cabin ($TBA) which closes up via huge metal panels on barn door sliders. We now bring you the False Bay Writer's Cabin ($TBA) also designed by Olson Kundig Architects. Instead of a hunting and fishing cabin, this one serves as a private writing retreat and guest cottage for their clients. Surrounded by wildlife it is a perfect retreat. The cabin is basically a glass house with 10 foot high windows, surrounded by three wooden slat decks and topped with an inverted hip roof with extended overhangs. The decks can be raised to serve as shutters via a system of hydraulic winches, wire rope, pivoting sheaves and lead blocks. Inside you'll find over 500 square feet of living space which includes a glazed room and a back of cabin area housing a small bathroom and kitchenette.

The Adidas ZX TR Mid Multi-Color ($90) is a combination between a running shoe and a hiking boot. The shoe is available in multiple colorways, but we love the grey shown above. The shoe uses materials including rustic leather, nylon and weatherized treatments. Just like luxury SUVs you may never take these out on the trails, but it's nice to know you can.
The Rest Station By Hard Graft ($73) charges your gadgets in style. The rest station comes in two versions. One specially made for the Apple Watch with a cutout for your charger, and the other with full leather overly with no cutout. Each station is made from Tuscan vegetable tanned leather that will age beautifully over time. Perfect for anyone who doesn't like the look of wires and gadgets all over the place.
There is nothing like the soothing scent of your favorite beer after having had the day from hell. The new Craft Beer Candles ($27) are available in three refreshing and delicious smelling scents including the rich Coffee Stout, fruity Juicy Pale Ale and floral West Coast IPA, each wonderfully unique. Hand-poured in the USA into 12oz candle holders, which can still continue to provide joy by acting as a glass! After a bit of clean of course.
