Some of you might wonder where Herdecke is. It’s a small town, located south of Dortmund, Germany.
I am with my family am in Herdecke right now. My brother and I had a little photo shoot the other day, because my parents asked for a nice picture of both of us. It’s not really our usual look. The idea was present them a staged portrait in a conservative look.

last year I did a long trip through california. I was driving through los angeles when I saw this unusual gas station at the corner of olympic and robertson. I didn’ t know what it really was. now I found the answer.
It is called helios house, is a commission of bp and is designed by office dA with johnston marklee. the slick metallic constructions produces energy via photovoltaics, which converts solar radiation into direct current electricity. another feature is that the geometric angles capture rainwater for irrigation, and reduces the urban heat island effect with a drought-tolerant green roof. I also found an extract that says that they used recycled and sustainable materials to build the station. whatever this material is, I just know that I want this eco-friendly innovation experience that makes me feel better when I fill up.
thorsten van elten, ‘manufacturer and distributor of design-led furniture, lighting, and accessories’ had a sample sale this weekend in his warehouse in bethnal green, east london. I could have published this information before, but I had a busy weekend. anyway, join his mailing list and get informed on time.
I got myself 3 t-shirts from designers anonymous and a black domoor cup by richard hutten for just a 10er!
