Dutch designer Reinier de Jong‘s Stip table is an elegant wooden furnishing remarkable for its minimalist design and high-quality craftsmanship. The sturdy dining table comprises ash wood legs and a birch plywood tabletop finished with white HPL. ‘Stip’ means dot in Dutch, and the table’s name was inspired by the circular shapes that punctuate the table’s form; the end grain of the angled ash legs are made visible through four round openings on the white tabletop.

Of all the creatures on Earth impacted by reckless human activity, polar bears are having a remarkably lousy time of it. First, climate change eats away at their habitat and makes it harder to hunt, and now it looks like chemical pollutants released into the atmosphere over previous decades are causing polar bears to experience weakness or even breakage in the most sensitive of bones. As one might imagine, this doesn’t bode especially well for the continued re-population of the species.

A team of students at California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco has developed autonomous, mobile 3D printing robots that could some day be put to work building in outlying areas. The Swarmscapers, as the small robots are called, are capable of traversing difficult terrain and they work with found materials to build shapes and structures. Some day, these little robots could be used to construct entire buildings.

In 1986, Cameroon’s Lake Nyos was the scene of an extraordinary and devastating natural disaster. The lake quite literally exploded, releasing 80 million cubic meters of carbon dioxide in just 20 seconds, which caused the suffocation deaths of 1,746 people and 3,500 livestock. The lake experienced what is known as a limnic eruption. Lake Nyos is not the only body of water in the region to carry properties that lead some to term them “killer lakes,” but scientists are working to ensure that this never happens again.

This year, Chinese New Year falls on Thursday, February 19th in 2015. We say goodbye to the horse and welcome the year of the wood sheep. There are magnificent parades, dancing in the streets, dragon costumes all around, and the entire continent of Asia is in celebration.

To ring in this new year, why not make some feng shui adjustments to bring some balance to your home? Feng shui is an Asian art of placement — or as I like to say, the original “green design”. Through observing and shifting the built environment, feng shui teaches us how to live in harmony with nature. Keep reading to learn more.
