We don’t feature skyscrapers too often in here, but today we’re presenting an amazing project in Incheon – South Korea. The project we’re about to speak of is called “The Cheongna City Tower”, but most people will probably know it as the Invisible Tower. For our untrained eyes and mind this project may seem a bit unfeasible, but the architects from GDS hold their line by declaring that their “ultimate magic tricks” will make an entire building disappear, due to the illusion of invisibility they rely on, based on optic physics principles. There’s also a statement that caught our attention, its authors

There’s something about Italy that makes us think of romantic holidays.. it’s probably the atmosphere of the place, or the huge number of historical monuments, combined with the incredibly beautiful weather. Apart from being a visitor, we think living in Italy enhances these feelings even more, especially in one of the country’s best regions, Umbria. The capital of Umbria, Perugia, is a gorgeous university town packed with artistic treasures and the source of many culinary styles. We’re presenting Renato’s Tower, a private medieval retreat located in the Umbrian hill, Italy, a great location to spend some romantic moments with your beloved one.

Though we find it pretty odd, we’ll present you something that’s cooler than a yacht or a resort, a man made floating island. The heads of a branch of the BMT Group, BMT Nigel Gee, announced their collaboration with Henry Ward Design for penning down and creating a brand new concept, the “Recreational Island”. It is practically a floating platform, able to fold and also featuring the possibility of being stored inside the tender bay of large yachts. It may be launched at water via the tender cranes and towed by the same tender to the future owners’ desired position. Deployed, it

Guitar enthusiasts, we have an eye-watering surprise for you and those alike. We’re presented exquisite guitars in the past as well, this time though we’ll show these Steampunk style pieces. With no coincidence at all, Tony Cochran’s guitars carry behind them an entire load of history, just like Steampunk culture. Tony intended to combine unused guitars with history, creating musical treasures. Having gone through a whole array of processes, like leather wrapping, metal-work and riveting, they finally received a superb industrial-like look and also kept their purpose. It’s time we presented a few of them with a bit of detail. The Alumicaster

This is the first time we pronounce the name of Romain Jerome on our pages. Considering this, we have to give it some style, thus presenting a new version of their Titanic DNA and tourbillion collection. Simply called Romain Jerome Chrono Tourbillion, the watch features the old 46mm case used by Romain Jerome since some time ago sharing a unique oxidized steel bezel look. This represents actually an attempt of recreating the effects of salt water over metal, after years of interaction. Furthermore, to enhance the theme of this watch series, a small part of the bezel’s metal comes from the real
