Han Kjøbenhavn 2015 Spring/Summer Collection

Danish fashion label Han Kjøbenhavn does its hometown proud with a witty offering for Spring/Summer 2015.  The collection, which debuted at Copenhagen Fashion Week (presently ongoing), is a neat assortment of quirky pieces that draw inspiration from deep sea divers and cloudy weather.  These themes were prominently showcased within the show, as models donned plastic ‘goggles’ as they sported the brand’s sport-infused bomber jackets, button-ups, crewnecks and bottoms.  In line with this, Han Kjøbenhavn used elastic materials – neoprene and spandex – prominently throughout the line.  Enjoy this look at the brand’s adventurous forthcoming collection, set to arrive at retailers at the end of the year.

Hookl und Stool 2014 Armada High Armchair

As a part of its ongoing pursuit of the perfect furnishings, Belgrade-based design studio Hookl und Stool commissioned designer Zoran Jedrejcic to create the Armada High Armchair. Perfectly minimalist, the chair uses a single piece of steel to construct the frame, which is covered by luxurious leather that softens over time. This lends the chair a distinct vintage feel while also maintaining a versatile modern appearance. A unique magnet system connects the solid wooden base to the seating, giving it a unique sense of suspension. Head to Hookl und Stool’s website to learn more about bringing this piece home.

Mustang Wanted Stars in Klangkarussell’s “Netzwerk (Falls Like Rain)” 

One part parkour, one part rock climbing, Ukrainian daredevil Mustang Wanted‘s stunt work is not for the faint of heart.  The climber’s talents take center stage in the latest music video from Austrian duo Klangkarussel, produced for a new rendition of their “Netzwerk (Falls Like Rain)” single.  As the background vocals soar above the tensely subdued synth work, Mustang Wanted climbs high above Belgrade, Serbia – the combination of which makes for amazing visuals.

Philips Urban Beehive Concept

Philips has shed light on an ingenious and aesthetically pleasing concept aimed at those seeking to harvest their own honey.  Separated in to two parts — a wall mounted outdoor flower pot holder with an entry point and a connected indoor glass shell that houses honeycomb frames –, this contraption allows for a scaled down beehive to be installed right in the living room. For those urban dwellers interested in trying their hand at beekeeping without the cumbersome gear, this concept allows you to do so in a mess- and pain-free manner.  Simply pull the actuator draw chain and watch homemade honey ooze from the container, while the bees rest calmly sedated.

Transworld Skateboarding Checks Out Brandon Nguyen

Quick feet and technical head-scratchers at spots seem the hallmark qualities of San Jose, California’s skateboarding scene, underlined and dotted in any one of Mark Suciu’s recent parts.  Carrying the torch for the city is Brandon Nguyen, who grasshopped his way onto Transworld‘s radar for a video version of its “Check Out” segment.  The surprising wallie to grind around the minute mark seems just short of impossible, while Nguyen also reminds viewers that the backside 360 and nose-popped bigspins are far from obsolete.  Enjoy the video above.
