Fauteuil Direction is a well designed chair in which you can sit comfortably at the table. I particularly loves the combination of materials like wood, black metal and white cushion. It's such a timeless modern.

I'm loving these illustrations by Tim Tomkinson. This series reminds me of victorian era drawings, but with modern touch. He made them fresh by adding modern elements like bubbles, smoke, liquid bursting...etc. Just think about it, these are things that can only be captured with high speed camera, became popularized in the second half of the century. I appreciate that.
The red-lipped batfish or Galapagos batfish (Ogcocephalus darwini) is a fish of unusual morphology found around the Galapagos Islands at depths of 30m or more. Red-lipped batfish are closely related to rosy-lipped batfish (Ogcocephalus porrectus), which are found near Cocos Island off the coast of Costa Rica. This fish is mainly known for its bright red lips. Batfish are not good swimmers; they use their highly-adapted pectoral fins to "walk" on the ocean floor. When the batfish reaches maturity, its dorsal fin becomes a single spine-like projection (thought to function primarily as a lure for prey). Similar to the anglerfish, the Red-Lipped Batfish has a structure on its head known as illicium. This structure is employed for attracting prey. from wiki
