More Cool Workspaces

Alexander Kjerulf posts on 10 very cool, very unique workspaces. Red Bull's London offices look like the interior of the spacecraft in "2001: A Space Odyssey."

Nude No More

Cool technology dude Guy Kawasaki recently visited the offices of Threadless. I wish my office was in an Airstream trailer!

Pixar and Google are also well known for their fun and innovative workspaces. This makes me wonder: how important is it for the physical space you work in to reflect playfulness and creativity? Is work better when it is in an environment that physically reflects the grounding philosophies and ideologies of the work? Can creative work still come from cubes?

Paul Pope is one of my favorite comic artists. His style is fluid and romantic but also tightly wound with energy. I love his look into the near-future of New York youth culture "100%" and his oddball Martian sci-fi story "THB" (about a girl and her inflatable robot!), both of which I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for unique comics stories. He now has a retrospective monograph out called PulpHope: The Art of Paul Pope and I can't wait to check it out.

Check out more of his artwork at his flickr photostream and his blog.

Now With 100% More Movement!

Animated New Yorker cartoons are much funnier than their motionless counterparts.

Grow Your Own

Let's say you're looking for some organic, sustainable furniture. Really organic. Super cool L.A. architecture and design group Fung + Blatt will soon be selling a lawnchair (pun intended) that includes a layer of real sod. (via coolhunting)

Daft Steam Punks

Brass Goggles is an excellent blog on all things Steam Punk. It leans towards posting most often on DIY steam punk artifacts but also includes other tasty steam punky news items. If you are a fan of Victorian-era science fiction, crafting, or just anachronistic technologies, it should be on your list of blogs to check daily. Check out their recent posting on a guy who built a beautiful jar of mechanically operated fireflies!
