Empty wine bottle table.This is a project that even a non-DIY’er could complete. Designed by Tati Guimarães of Brazil, the mini-tables are made out of scrap wood and wine bottles. A nice bonus: the tabletops work as serving trays too. [Unconsumption]

Turning On The Rima LED Light Is Like Opening A Curtain. May Be The Coolest LED Light I Can’t Afford.

The Rima light has 56 LEDs and was designed by Matthias Pinkert for the German lighting company Dreipuls. The Rima light lets the user slide its 4 rings, like opening a curtain, to adjust and create the perfect amount of light for their application.

Unfortunately great design does come with a price – the Rima sells for approx $2400 (US). Looks like I’ll be sticking with the “Bite Me” edible LED light until the Rima reaches economies of scale. [Fast Co.Design]

47″ Wide Keret House, The World’s Skinniest Home, Is Being Built In Poland.

The Keret House - Warsaw PolandWhy not build a 47″ wide house in between two buildings? You can put some normally vacant space to use, avoid party hosting duties and it’ll also discourage long term house guests. Designed by Jakub Szczesny of Centrala, the only downside we could find in the 47″ wide Keret House design is that a house guest might get trapped on that beanbag chair in the far right corner when the door is left open above the stairs. Actually, that could be a feature. [Good]
