Design Challenge:Save the Week! Jennifer Lopez, another break-up.

How many marriages has Jennifer Lopez had ? Well , let´s see :

Lopez’s first marriage was to Cuban-born Ojani Noa onFebruary 22, 1997. Ended at January 1998

Her second marriage was to her former backup dancerCris Judd. The two were married on September 29, 2001, at a home in the L.A. suburbs. Their marriage effectively ended in June 2002, when Lopez began publicly dating Ben Affleck.

Less than two months after her break-up with Affleck, Lopez was seen with singer Marc Anthony, a long-time friend with whom she had worked in music videos. They had briefly dated in the late 1990s, before his first marriage and her second. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jennifer_Lopez)

Lopez and Anthony married in a quiet home wedding on June 5, 2004 and as we all know it ended just last month.

We are all disappointed and felling a bit betrayed, but hey you know, kind of we expected it. For that reason I have designed the ultimate I don´t care if you ever get married again Jennifer Lopez APP.

This APP works as a Jennifer Lopez face recognition system , every time her face appears on the screen or if her name gets shout somewhere , it immediately will trade it for screen shoots of “The Perfect Marriage Movie “ starring Loretta Young and David Niven. Great design idea.

I really wanted to design something to avoid another hook up that will end into a divorce, but let’s face it, getting married/divorced is a hobby for Jennifer Lopez so, here is the quick sketch for her next quick marriage, a beautiful wedding gown ! This is a beautiful design and i will hate to think that JLo or anyone will only use it once, but hey, it doesn´t really matter, this wedding gown design will last forever as long as Jennifer Lopez ends her marriage as quick as she possibly can.

Hoped you have enjoyed this Week´s design challenge, we sure did !Don´t forget to comment  to improve our design ideas. ;P

Next week: Barbie! why? because it´s Barbie!!!

Lenny Niemeyer: Summer, Architecture and Fashion

Hey, hey you there!

When i say “summer time” what is the first picture that comes to your mind? Yes! bikinis!!! and hot bodies of course… and where is the place where everybody look like a half naked top model all the time? Brazil, for sure. The most important thing to have in mind when you are heading brazilian beaches is that you are going to be surrounded by dreamy natural bodies, so the way to can make a big entrance is by wearing  stunning swimwear and the girl for the perfect brazilian swimwear is Lenny Niemeyer.

Lenny Niemeyer used to be a landscape architect and family of the most famous brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.  This background let her create pieces that mix architectonic textures, balance, concept and take to women’s skin the words of Oscar Niemeyer ”  It is not the right angle that attracts me, nor the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free and sensual curve — the curve that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuous course of its rivers, in the body of the beloved woman”

The non fabric elements make the eye focus on your back through a sensual curve.   

The broken ceramic texture will take your breast to the spotlight.

Geometry .

The curve makes the look go trought all your body. 

The reminder of a wall, tall, strong, indestructible…

So, girls, summer is here, work out and turn the beach into your empire!

Candy: stylish one piece swimwear by Lenny! I love the 2008 collection, but the new one is awesome too!!!

Design Challenge : True Blood Season 4 premiere

To honor the True Blood season 4 premiere  we have our new and third design challenge, needless to say that we adore the series, and after almost a year waiting  (waiting SUCKS !) for the 4th season premiere we cannot wait to see the exciting new adventures of our beloved  Sooki Stackhouse, Bill and of course the wonderful Eric ;D

For those addicted to hot vampires, happiness and excitement come together in True Blood season 4,  just released. We have to admit that the synthetic blood idea has its pros and cons, it was the reason that let vampires say  “hey! We exist!! and we don´t need to suck your blood out because we have this tasty beverage”  …yes, sure.

If you are a sincere True Blood fan you know it is not completely true, they enjoy drinking from your hot veins even more. Blame the bottle!!! That way I designed a new one, a bottle more suitable for vampires, big, strong, tough

No need to open the bottle you can stick your fangs in it !

Eric Northman: if you are not in the mood for a True Blood , dinner will be waiting for you tonight all blushed. XOXO Criss

I, on the other hand thought about all those last minute hookups between humans and vampires. What happens the day after ? Your bedroom has not been designed to be totally sealed during daylight. Don´t worry, I came up with a perfect and stylish solution : disposable curtains.  You can cut them  in to the exact size of your window and install them in just a few seconds, just roll out the fabric and stick it to the frame of your window.

Comes in standard sizes : 2.44 x 1.22 , 3.66 x 1.22, 3.66 x 2.44

No need to worry about the sunrise now huh!

Hope you enjoyed this week challenge, see you next Monday  with the News of The World Scandal.

Retro Interiors

I love interior design, makes me think about happy times in family , with friends or even on your own, it doesn´t really matter, the important thing is to have a beautiful and functional space to develop your activities.

Interior design history is something that´s been proven appealing to all of us. I don´t know what it is, the melancholy, the memories or even the idea of living in another era, looking at vintage  interior design pictures evokes something inside of all of us.

Design Challenge: Vancouver kiss… oh my!!!

Hello there! Are you ready to check the Design Challenge: Save the week? Ok, here we go!!!

Everybody is talking about one image in particular these days:Vancouver kiss photo. This couple had the most romantic moment on camera while a riot took place inVancouver after a jockey game. A photo to remember and a reason to design!!!We decided to design frames for the pic or based on it.

Talented Sofi came up with an out of this world frame:

Inspired on the speculations that caused this  Vancouver kiss photo on tv and social network ’cause many people had questioned the authenticity of the image , if it was a publicity stunt or if the photographer paid the couple to achieve the shoot, the truth is that this is just a good shoot. It doesn’t matter if it is real or not, it still is a great photo.That’s why I designed a frame that appears to be floating in the air. It works with 2 magnets that repels each other as a base and a floating frame for the image.

This visual trick is fun, even if we know what is going on it still astonishes us, and I think , that´s  the real point of the picture.

My turn. This time my design was based on the Vancouver Kiss pic, I decided to use leather because of the soft touch and the warm color. Why speakers? Every moment needs it’s soundtrack!! Bluetooth let you use your music device to create the ideal environment for this or any other romantic picture of you and your sweetheart.

So this is it… for now!!! Check you favorite section Design Challenge: Save the week next monday ’cause we are going to surprise you with … ok let it be a surprise, keep watching!!

Design Challenge : How to cope with newly released Breaking Dawn trailer ?

So here it is!! The first project, the opening of our section and soon your favorite on the net to be in touch with design. Design Challenge: Save the week!!! Enjoy!

After months of anticipation, the official Breaking Dawn trailer hit the Internet and caused the expected revolution. If you were part of that 2% of the population who didn´t know that Bella was getting married and having a child, well , now you do. The trailer pretty much tells us all.

So, whether you are one of those who don´t give a shit about this movies or the ones that would´t be able to get some rest until you see Breaking Dawn premiere, we have designed something to get all of you entertained meanwhile, our own Design Challenge of the Breaking Dawn movie, here are the results :

1- Criss came up with a beautiful pen to sign a prenup between Bella and Edward.

Dear Bella:

Congratulations for your wedding smart girl, quite a catch!! As the young lady you are you probably need some advice in order to protect yourself, and I’m not talking about honey moon, but your… finances.

My gift to you is a beautiful (after some clicks in photoshop it will be) pen, with crystal and diamond, just to remember the touch of our dear Edward, ok, YOUR dear Edward; no ink, I guess you would rather blood, your husband’s blood. You might be wondering why a pen, if not you probably are smarter than I thought; the pen is to be ready to sign a PRENUP! With glamour of course, Alice won’t let you do anything other way. You are about to be immortal and Edward already is, but is better to be prepared, you don’t know when the Voultouri guys are going to feel bored and hunt you just for fun or just to give Mrs. Mayer an excuse to write another book…

C’mon girl! You know widowhood is a possibility with that imprudent husband of yours.

Enjoy honeymoon!

P.D.: sue your high school, sex education classes weren’t good enough.

XOXO Criss.

2-Sofia My approach to the design challenge was from the fans point of view. For those girls who will stand long nights and days outside the movie theater, just waiting to be the first one to get tickets for the premiere, i have came up with this : the  Twilight survivour movie kit !

This kit contains :1 personal outside tent, to camp outside your favorite movie theater without worrying of november bad weather

1 personal sleeping bag, with a secret compartment to store that lovely sparkling and cold kinky toy ( this product actually exists) that will make you company during those lonely nights on the street.

1 Cooler to store your water and food, while you´re camping outside the theater with one special feature : Blackboard finish on the inside lid of the cooler, this will not only ad personality to your twilight cooler, it will also give that space you needed to express your obsesion and/or team affiliation (Team Jacob or Team Edward)

That was our Design Challenge : Breaking Down trailer, hope you have enjoy it! Remember that every Monday we publish  new designs inspired in current news and trending topics 😛

Next Week : Kiss in Vancouver photograph design challenge! can´t wait for the results !
