Andreas Kunert and Naomi Zettl, a married artist duo based in Vancouver, create beautiful flowing wall installations out of rocks, pebbles, and other decorative elements.
“I am passionate to give stone an articulated form. This involves finding the right stones – listening,” explains Kunert, who takes commissions through a website called Ancient Art Of Stone that he runs together with Zettl.
For those not planning major interior remodeling work any time soon, the couple also sells prints of smaller detailed and colorful work that they create specifically for this purpose. Due to their smaller size, these pieces can incorporate colorful stones and elements that just wouldn’t work in their larger installations. Take a look!
For the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale artist Marta Wengorovius teamed with architect Francisco Aires Mateus to produce this little slice of paradise; a reading cabin for one.
The simple wood structure is fit for one person, holds one bookshelf and has a raised seating area and that’s it. It is light by a skylight.
The artist populated the bookshelf by asking 20 guests to choose three books each for the library.
"Sharing this itinerant project creates a community between people who read the books, the guests who chose the books and the people who will read the books wherever the cabin shall pass," says Wengorovius.
The project had its first opening on December 2012 in Paredes, north of Portugal. The library is scheduled to be in a different place each year. If exhibited in a foreign country the books will be translated and available in the native language of the country.

Making out with a person for the first time is the coolest thing and the second coolest thing is driving home and getting aware of all the parts of your face where they were and tasting their lip balm on your lips. The third coolest thing is outer space.
