Vinylize is a Budapest based design company that manufactures eyewear using materials repurposed from vinyl records. The Vinylize 20th Century Icons Remastered collection celebrates the anniversary of unforgettable albums ranging from 25 to 60 years years of age. On March 15 1976 Kiss released their Destroyer album. 40 years later Vinylize has taken that same piece of vinyl and crafted it into an unforgettable set of sunglasses as a tribute to one of the most iconic bands of the 70’s. Destroyer was Kiss’s first album to achieve platinum status and included such tracks as Beth or Shout It Out Loud. This eyewear is perfect for Kiss fans and lovers of luxury eyewear alike. The inside of the eyewear box is adorned with a sleeve from the original vinyl. The sunglasses and case are perfectly framed by the remains of the Destroyer record. The frame is ejected by pressing the label which has been laser cut to hide a catapult mechanism. On the front of the frame 3 tracks can be seen: Detroit Rock City, King of the Night Time world and God of Thunder. + Vinylize The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on New U.S. map shows bees dying off in agricultural areas that need them most

The plight of wild honey bees is a topic we have covered time and again, as the little winged agricultural assistants continue to disappear. Some 30 percent of bee populations are dying off each year, largely as the result of neonicotinoid insecticides used on crops. University of Vermont researchers have used data modeling to track the populations of wild bees in the United States for the first time ever, and their work has resulted in a map illustrating which counties will suffer most from declining bee numbers . The map shows the areas which need the highest levels of fertilization are also the regions where bee populations are at record lows. Effectively, this means the bees are disappearing where their pollination services are needed the most, marking a new and disturbing trend that could endanger food supplies.

Meet the man caring for 4,000 wild parakeets from his home in Chennai, India. Sekar, a humble camera repairman, didn’t set out to become known as the “Birdman” of his town, yet the title developed as people begin to see more and more birds flocking to his home early each morning for their neatly organized feast. Neighbors say watching him feed the birds is “a majestic thing and a spectacular sight,” leaving onlookers in awe of the display.

Comments Off on Persian Gulf will be too hot for humans by 2100 without action, says new study

Global warming threatens to run residents out of coastal cities as melting ice caps cause sea levels to rise. Now, a new study released this week suggests some areas of the planet will be unfit for human occupation by the end of this century. Specifically, scientists project that temperatures in the Persian Gulf will rise so high people will be unable to continue living there . The unchecked effects of climate change will impact major cities first, an ironic backlash from burning the very resources harvested in that region.

This pallet-based patio proves that even renters can have stylishly-remodeled spaces

Comments Off on This pallet-based patio proves that even renters can have stylishly-remodeled spaces

When it comes to architectural style, rental apartments can be bland and lifeless, with little room for creative design expression. So what’s the renter with a dream of having a beautiful outdoor space to do? Here’s an inspiring story of how two renters turned a bland outdoor patio into a gorgeous tropical-style outdoor retreat using pallets . Because they were renting, the creative husband and wife team at A Piece of Rainbow couldn’t do any drilling into or attaching to existing walls. They also couldn’t paint existing surfaces, including the floor, walls or ceiling. But they wanted to achieve a built-in look while keeping everything easy to take apart when it’s time to move. Almost the entire project was done with thrown away pallets – the living wall, the furniture and stenciled pallet wood floors – just to prove that not only can one have a magazine worthy “remodel” as renters and it can be done with minimal cost as well. Check out the pictures of the final project and then head over to A Piece of Rainbow for tutorials on how to make everything – from the pallet furniture to the tropical living wall. + A Piece of Rainbow Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: A Piece of Rainbow , building pallet furniture , DIY , DIY pallet , DIY pallet garden , DIY pallet patio , DIY pallet patio furniture , DIY patio furniture , pallet furniture , pallet furniture ideas , patio furniture , reader submission , recycled design , reused design
