These Bright Yellow Stairs Have Open Fronts For Extra Storage

When Andrew Maynard of Austin Maynard Architects was designing his own home in Melbourne, Australia, he decided to create a staircase that would provide additional storage, as well as be bright and colorful.

After finding some brightly colored taps and asking his Instagram followers which color to go with, yellow was the chosen color, and was used throughout the space, with the floor, kitchen faucet, dining chairs, lighting and the stairs all being the same color.

The stairs, not only are they bright yellow, but the front of the stairs are open, providing additional storage space for the home, and by designing open fronts instead of drawers, the home owners are easily able to see what is stored away.

These Beautiful Photos Of Subway Stations Will Transport You From Your Daily Commute

T-Centralen, Stockholm, Sewden

“Honestly, I’m just really obsessed with looking at photos of metros,” says Montreal-based photographer Chris Forsyth. The photography student at Montreal’s Dawson College has been documenting the unique interiors of the Canadian city’s 68 transit stations, which date to the 1960s, for nearly two years.

His work, he says, focuses on accentuating the design he finds most people could appreciate if they realized it were there.

“[I’m] just trying to bring out that overlooked beauty in the architecture that I find people tend to miss when they’re on their daily commute.”

Forsyth recently took his Montreal Metro Project on the road, to European cities—Berlin, Munich, and Stockholm—to explore the hidden architectural splendor of their transit systems.

Can You Guess Who Is Kissing In These Pics: Real Couples Or Friends?

When photographer Ben Lamberty was walking down the street last summer, he saw a couple kissing and took a spontaneous picture of them. He liked the shot so much he decided to make a series of similar photos. Ben asked his friends to pose as models for his project.

More info: Ben Lamberty (h/t: brightside)

Some of them were real couples while others were just good friends. According to the photographer, the “real” couples found it more challenging to show their feelings in front of the camera than friends who kissed just for fun. The photographer deliberately chose not to disclose whether the couples in the photos were real or not.

These Trippy Collages Got Phillip Kremer Kicked Off Of Social Media

Endlessly entertaining, often hilarious collages of celebrities, politicians, and ordinary people are at the crux of artist Phillip Kremer’s infamy. He makes art that is as interesting as the stories behind his creations. After hosting his first art show in the bathroom of a dive bar 20 years after his final art class in high school, Kremer found new excitement in making art once again. The series of collages started from Google searches of “blank face” when Kremer couldn’t find anything.

Donald Trump Really Doesn’t Want You To See These Photos

Whilst the heated dialogue around fake news and alternative facts continues to swirl and dominate news feeds around the world – British artist Alison Jackson (previously featured) is taking things to a whole other level. Her satirical series seemingly exposes the sordid and secretive life of Donald Trump.

More info: Alison Jackson (h/t: sobadsogood)

A behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of one of the most powerful men in the world. Expertly edited and given that classic 90’s sheen, at first glance these images look like genuine Polaroid scans. Selfies with Miss World, candid shots with Klu Klux Klan and even a few intimate photos of the emperors new clothes round out the hilarious series.

Pre-Order These Trusco Toolboxes Now

Four years ago we spotted the Trusco Toolbox on one of our favorite designer’s website and, fully enamored, immediately made a sourcing mission of securing it for sale at volume. After much effort we found a Japanese distributor willing to work with us via an export agency; it added cost and processing time but it got the toolboxes to our shores. Our passion for Trusco spread and the toolbox became one of Hand-Eye’s best-ever sellers.

Get on Board for $ avings

We kept up an effort throughout this time to more efficiently source and import: looking into other arrangements, even trying air freight to keep the supply flowing smoothly. Finally, late last year, with the help of our city – Thank you, Mitsu & Portland Development Commission – we established a direct connection with the Trusco manufacturing company.

Now that the contracts are complete we are very excited to update our Trusco page with new prices – an average of 40% less than before and to announce that pre-ordering is open! Anyone placing an order by February 28th is guaranteed a spot in of our first shipment!

Get your pre-order in by Feburary 28th!

These Images Give A Rare Insight Into The Life Of A 19th Century Indian Maharajah

Maharajah Ram Singh ruled in the famous pink city of Jaipur between 1835 and 1880, and was also a keen photographer. Despite being a child when he ascended to the throne, the Maharajah embraced modern amenities and under his leadership the city became one of the most distinctive in the country.

He would often roam the streets incognito to observe how state officials were carrying out their work, and was recognised by the British Government, which added four guns to his salute and nominated him as a member of the Viceroy’s Legislative Council. During his reign new water works, gas works, museums and schools were built, and he devoted a lot of his time to capturing the costumes and culture of his people with his then state-of-the-art camera equipment. Here: Portrait of a woman in the harem of the royal palace of Jaipur, India, circa 1857.

These Panda Selfies Are The Opposite Of Cute

Panda selfies just surfaced from a massive panda breeding center in China, sparking a flurry of “awws” on one side and raised eyebrows on the other. Giant panda breeding in China is a complicated industry, with apparently good intentions — saving the giant panda from extinction — and big bucks at stake.

h/t: thedodo

Although it was elsewhere reported that the panda shown in the recent selfies — who lives at the Dujiangyan Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding — is participating in a release program, Suzanne Braden, director of Pandas International, said this is incorrect.

“Yes the cute panda having his picture taken is at the Dujiangyan Panda Base, but this base does not participate in the reintroduction program,” Braden told The Dodo. “The reintroduction program is in Wolong at two bases totally off-limits to the public. No panda in the reintroduction program comes in contact with humans.”
