This week's picks a day late:
+ Karim Rashid launches Pinker brand at designboom, "in this pinker landscape, boundaries between working and living environments are blurring. 'the happy office' seems to be as comfortable and cosy as the home".
+ Ross Lovegrove's new Freedom collection for Turkish bathroom manufacturer VitrA, "The collection of asymmetrical, sculptural forms includes a toilet, free-standing and wall-mounted basins, and a bidet."
+ TreeHugger's The Best of Green in Design and Architecture slideshow, "Design is so subjective, and green design is even harder, given that it is so difficult to define. We give it our best shot."
+ Apartment Therapy's house tour of Wågensjö and Herberger's home in Geneva, a combination tech tour and design tour.
+ NOTCOT at the Monocle LA store opening, "I was surprised how incredibly low key and what a mixed crowd this event was! It felt more like a picnic than a launch party..."
+ icon's guide to Milan Design Week icon design trail Milan is now online and searchable. Via Dezain.
