Tiny house lovers, meet Tikku. A super sleek, multi level tiny apartment that currently lives in a bustling Helsinki square, where it only takes up a footprint of 2.5 x 5 meters (roughly 8′ x 16.5′) — the size of a parking spot. The house, designed and installed by Marco Casagrande, is described as “a contemporary cave for a modern urban nomad.” Tikku, which means “stick” in Finish, seeks to bring a sense of the organic to city life.
How the furniture was arranged for entertaining, for conversation, for “company.” It was once common for friends to drop by, even unannounced, and for you to spread some refreshments around while you sat on couches, facing each other, to shoot the breeze. Nowadays that sounds insane. Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco perfectly and hilariously illustrates the difference between someone dropping by 20 years ago versus now.
It’s the combination of textures on the floor and bed, as well as the clear desk chair that takes up little visual space. Notice the boxes under the bed and the narrow wall shelf that add extra dorm storage without taking up too much space. Want a little extra privacy? Hang some curtains from the ceiling using Command Utility Hooks, which can hold a decent amount of weight and are easy to remove without making holes in the walls or ceilings.
We know what heat sinks do, but why do we actually need them? Is there really a problem with components getting hot? The answer is definitely YES. Circuits have a maximum operating temperature that is typically referred to as the maximum junction operating temperature (T op). The L298 specifies this as 130°C in the datasheet. We cannot exceed this temperature, or damage is likely to occur. We also know that the component will generate heat during standard operation and that it will operate in an environment with a given ambient temperature.
Benjamin Hubert of LAYER design will be launching a furniture collection for UK furniture company Allermuir at London Design Festival’s Somerset House. The three piece collection consisting of a chair, a barstool and a small café table will be amongst many projects at the center for engaging design discussion and experiences during the anticipated design festival.
To have a thorough understanding of their goodness one must not only read about them but taste them. They are the staple diet in many foreign countries and in the Armour brand the native flavoring has been done with remarkable faithfulness—so much so that large quantities are shipped from this country every week to the countries where they originated.
The house is designed to be mobile, to set down wherever one might place a car. It has three floors: one for sleeping, one for working and a green-house that are designed to be endlessly adaptable to the owner’s needs. There’s a sand box in the base of the building for balance, so one can simply set the house down wherever there is space, no foundation required.
Like every space I design, I tried to create a strong balance of color and tone.benjamin hubert
The bedroom features a moody color palette, but still manages to give off the relaxing and sleepy vibes Rotter was after. Her art and accessory collection extends into the space, but in small doses like a mini-gallery above her bedside table. to my house from France to lend a hand and is one amongst the warmest, sweetest, and friendliest folks I’ve ever met.
Nothing changes a room quite like a fresh coat of paint, but the time and expense of re-painting an entire space puts many people off. Instead, think about how you can subtly use paint to draw attention to your home’s better features, or perhaps fake a few you wish you had.
The two wooden structures create a space in between that hosts a work area overlooking the living room and kitchen below. A bedroom and shower are tucked away to one side of the common space, close to the mezzanine walkway. We love how everything was kept simple, with the plywood surfaces adding a warm feel against the walls painted in white. Here and there, splashes of color add a personal, dynamic touch. IKEA’s product development engineer Ricky Ericsson states in the video that they had to modify the original legs of the HAY design for greater stability.
