My Top5 This Week

Like everyone else in the states I have recently watched Tron Legacy. How about the houses in there, eh?

A Sunday review by Sally.

1. FNS Apartments by reinhardtjung

I mean the rebellious son lives in some type of shipping container dude pad, and the dad lives in a f**king rock with white floors and Ghost chairs and mercury glass balls and other stuff that I can’t remember because I went to a tiki bar beforehand. Anyway the whole point is that these FNS apartments seem like something heavily inspired by Tron. Sure, I know they weren’t because it’s not like you develop a concept, draft a budget, get funding and then renovate two apartments mere days after you see a movie. But I’m thinking this is a happy coincidence.

Whoa, what the f**k. “the mirror functions as a touch screen and uses motion capturing software.” What? Is this an episode of CSI? What’s going on here, Romy van den Broek?

Doing this makes me feel cheap, but I can’t deny my feelings: I agree with the designer, this design combines modern and antique styles. Usually I’d be like “ugh, what a copout! Next design will be ‘inspired by nature!’ Amirite?”

I really get off on the smell of old, musty books. I will probably never embrace the iPad. I’m like those old people writers who took ten years to finally can the typewriter and switch to a computer. Anyway, when I see a wall of books – especially in this setting – I get a girl boner.
