Ever wondered what’s going on inside of wood? Brett Foxwell has. Fascinated by the material, him and musician bedtimes created a short film called WoodSwimmer in which they follow a piece of raw wood through a milling machine. The blend of wonderful textures and layers has been captured on an animation camera. “Fascinated with the shapes and textures found in both newly-cut and long-dead pieces of wood, I envisioned a world composed entirely of these forms,” Foxwell told our friends over at Colossal. Definitely worth watching.

This summer is all about white trainers – they’re literally everywhere. But these retro Apple trainers are way cooler than anything the summer collection 2017 has to offer. Designed in the 1990s for Apple store employees, only two pairs of these iconic ‘Computer Sneakers’ are believed to be left worldwide. All the more reason to keep an eye on Heritage Auction where one pair is due to be sold the next week. The bids start at £11,590. Thanks to our friends at The Memo who love the ‘Airmax’-style soles, the chunky tongues and the classic striped Apple desktop logo!

If you’re planning a trip to Barcelona, the Casa Vicens is one for the must-see list. After two years of renovation, Antonio Gaudís first built house will shortly be open to the public. The 19th century building originally belonged to a tile manufacturer and was used as a summer home. With great attention to detail Spanish architects led by José Antonio Martínez Lapeña and Elías Torres renovated the entire building and restored the beautiful ceramic elements. From now on, it will also display many of Gaudís original designs and host exhibitions.

Climate change affects nature in ways most of us aren’t even conscious of. Bee colonies are a great example of this in that they are in real danger of collapse as they struggle to adapt to a new and more volatile environment. Enter Bait Hive… Created by British designer Joshua Akhtar, the flat pack uses a targeted scent to attract swarms of bees searching for a new home, and ensures that they nest in the most suitable locations.

Subway map by Sasha Trubetskoy

Ever imagined what an empire’s tube map would look like? ...no? ...neither have we. Thankfully though, Sasha Trubetskoy from the University of Chicago has taken on the burden so we don’t have to. Using data from various different locations, he’s plotted the entirety of the Roman Empire circa 125 AD on a nifty subway-style map. Rome built over 250,000 miles of road and this is evident on the map which stretches all the way from Petra to ‘Londinium’… Sound familiar?
