 Door Knob Hanger

Michael Lebowitz  has put up a beautiful gallery of hotel door knob hangers, that he found while going through the belongings of his grandfather who passed away last year. His grandfather worked in the foreign service, and had managed to pick up a considerable number of hangers from different parts of the world.

You can also download the entire collection in a single 7mb zip file,  which Michael has generously posted on his site.

Tangram Bookshelves

A Tangram is a Chinese puzzle made by cutting a square into five triangles, a square, and rhombus. The pieces must be arranged to form a shape of some sort.

One more pic after the jump.

I found this this funky looking "Splash Lounge Chair" created by designer Michael Wendel on the Yanko Design site.

Wendel was probably inspired by shots of water/milk splashes captured with high speed photography.
