House of Mirrors by Harumi Yukutake

Back in 2009, during Japan’s biggest open-air art festival, called Echigo-Tsumari , artist Harumi Yukutake constructed a magical-looking house covered with thousands of round mirrors. After walking along a narrow path surrounded by grass on both sides, visitors would come upon this house that seemed to merge with its surroundings, making the border between reality and unreality unclear.

Each mirror was unique because it was hand cut by the artist. According to Guardian , the house, called Restructure, “had no back wall, just a space opening onto a view of the fields, reflected endlessly in the thousands of mirrors that lined the inside walls.”

1Q84

“I’m tired of living unable to love anyone. I don’t have a single friend – not one. And, worst of all, I can’t even love myself. Why is that? Why can’t i love myself? It’s because I can’t love anyone else. A person learns how to love himself through the simple acts of loving and being loved by someone else. Do you understand what i am saying? A person who is incapable of loving another cannot properly love himself.”

―Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

Him & Her Chairs

The Him & Her Chairs from Italian designer Fabio Novembre are unique anatomically-shaped chairs that take the waist-down form of a man and a woman. The chairs are produced by Casamania and are available in several colors.

“Him & Her are born directly from the ideas behind the Panton Chair. An evolution of the hermaphroditic original, declined into the harmony of the two sexes. They assume sculpted forms like naked models of seduction…but they feel no shame.”

The chairs have been spotted by Mission Mission at Osha Thai restaurant in San Francisco, California

EAMES: The Architect and the Painter

EAMES: The Architect and the Painter is a documentary film that chronicles the lives of prolific American designers, Charles and Ray Eames. 

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America’s most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. But their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life — from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age — has been less widely understood. Narrated by James Franco, Eames: The Architect and the Painter is the first film dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work.
