The Villa Vals By Christian Muller Architects and SeARCH ($TBA) is a villa in the Valsertal valley of Switzerland. Embedded into the side of a hill, construction of the villa left the surrounding nature untouched. It was built from quartzite recovered from the site and nearby thermal baths. Access to the residence is provided through a nearby wooden barn and a connecting underground tunnel. The most amazing thing about this home is the view of the mountain valley perfectly framed when looking out of the the circular cut made in the mountainside.
John McConell has launched a Kickstarter for a pretty cool wallet. The Sapling Wallet ($12+) may be the perfect minimalist wallet. It's made from two wood laminate fiberboard plates held together by an elastic band. It will hold up to 8 cards, as well as cash under the band, and is small enough to be used in your front pocket. The Sapling is available in walnut, cherry or birch wood.
The Boodaak by Deus Machina ($TBA) gets its name from the sounds made as you roll on and off of its throttle. It's a funny name for a classic Deus Machina bike. The Boodaak started off with a HRC Johnny Campbell spec Honda XR650R engine that has oversized valves and a Carrillo rod. Almost everything else on the bike is custom including the frame, swingarm, the Racetech shock that was valved by Jimmy Woods, the seat, and the dual exhaust. The Bookdaak was made to be an aggressive, high performance bike and it looks like Deus hit their mark. Check out all the pics after the break.(more…)
