Check out this old article we dug up about Marilyn Lighstone and Moses Znaimer’s home in Toronto, Ontario.

What a great article and gorgeous images of how stained glass can be used all over your home.

Continuing on the Theme of Innovative Digital Art…

We came across another fascinating digital art application by Lumacoustics.  Since the beginning of the graffiti subculture one major question has been posed: Art or Vandalism?

There are a ton of phenomenally talented graffiti artists world-wide and Lumacoustics is now taking the art of graffiti  one step further into the 21st Century.

Lumacoustics has designed a digital  graffiti wall, an interactive surface in which you use a modified spray can to digitally “paint” or “tag” a virtual wall.

Allowing you to customize every stroke and pattern, this interactive graffiti wall is an incredibly innovative art tool.  We’d love to play with it to bring our stained glass designs to life for the 21st century.

The below video shows a graffiti artist going to town on what Lumacoustics has dubbed YrWall.

Digital Stained Glass?

While searching for new and innovative stained glass projects, I  instead discovered an innovative new media company based out of London called, Lumacoustics.  They specialize in interactive spaces providing digital experiential media for events.

At an event, Bloc 2011, Lumacoustics designed an installation as an “arching digital stained glass that appeared to go beyond the stage floor”.

The display was designed as a modern twist on a 1850s Bristol Byzantine architectural style and was audio reactive with an endless combination of effects.

Take a look and let us know what you think.

Here’s another video of a Lumacoustics design using projection mapping, pretty fascinating.

Innovative Hong Kong Architect Converts 330 sq ft Apartment into Functional 24 Room Home

Creative architect Gary Chang converts his 330 sq ft apartment into a fully functioning home, fully equipped with office, living room and guest bedroom.

Possibly  inspired by the film ‘The Fifth Element’, the apartment bears a similar futuristic feel of Bruce Willis’s Character Corbin Dallas’s apartment in the film.

Whatever his inspiration we love his innovative approach to creating space while maintaining a harmonious design.

We especially liked the warm yellow hue used in the 3 long glass windows which make it seem like the sun is always shinning.  A great example of how a few windows with tinted glass can change the look and feel of any room.
