I think walls have so much potential to be used for, instead of just empty space.

I want to do this and add a few tea bags. It would be the perfect way to celebrate ether spring, or the summer equinox, or just do it when you feel like it.

9 Hours by Fumie Shibata.

The Nine Hours capsule hotel, designed by Fumie Shibata, is a hotel experience like none other. For approximately $55 a night, one can stay at this Kyoto, Japan hotel that can only be described as out of the ordinary.

The layout is efficient, with a mostly white interiorcontrasting minimalistic signage, and fiber-reinforced plastic sleeping pods. That’s right, sleeping pods. After watching a quick video of the interior by Monocle, I’m very tempted to stay here.

There are a total of 125 capsules made of plastic and fitted with custom lighting. The pods look like they came straight out of a sci-fi movie. They have organic curves, built-in electronics, and a very moderna esthetic. The name, 9 hours, was conceived from the time it takes to shower (1hr), sleep (7hr), and relax (1hr).

Sleeping 7 hours daily increase your likely hood of health problems, and makes your performances less efficient as you feel tired.

The latest project by Japanese studio Torafu Architects may look like a standard floating shelf, but it actually contains a slim secret drawer that can be opened with magnets.

The Aokigahara Suicide Forest

The Aokigahara forest has the unfortunate distinction as the world’s second most popular place to take one’s life. The first is the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Since the 1950s, depressed Japanese citizens have wandered in, and at least 1000 of them haven’t wandered out. In 2002, 78 bodies were found within the forest, exceeding the previous record of 74 in 1998. In 2003, the rate climbed to 100, and in recent years, the local government has stopped publicizing the numbers in an attempt to downplay Aokigahara’s association with suicide. In 2004, 108 people killed themselves in the forest. In 2010, 247 people attempted suicide in the forest, 54 of whom completed the act.

Japanese spiritualists believe that the suicides committed in the forest have permeated Aokigahara’s trees, generating paranormal activity and preventing many who enter from escaping the forest’s depths. Complicating matters further is the common experience of compasses being rendered useless by the rich deposits of magnetic iron in the area’s volcanic soil.

Due to the vastness of the forest, desperate visitors are unlikely to encounter anyone once inside the so-called “Sea of Trees,” so the police have mounted signs reading “Your life is a precious gift from your parents,” and “Please consult the police before you decide to die!” on trees throughout the forest.

The place has long been associated with death. Ubasute, literally translates to ”abandoning an old woman.” Ubasute may have been practiced there into the 19th century, and the forest is reputedly haunted by the Yurei (angry spirits) of those left to die.

One Pot, Two Lives

Another great pot idea based on a simple love affair. The fishy eats and ‘wastes out’ its lunch, the plant feeds on its nutrients. The plant eats some water and filters it down so it is clean for the fishy. Happy families. Check out more on the Yanko Design website.
