Moku Moku Yu Baths by Klein Dytham Architecture

The Moku Moku Yu Baths, designed by Klein Dytham Architecture in 2006, is a timber bathhouse set amidst pine forest at the Risonare Resort. Communal bathing is an ancient and venerable tradition in Japan.

Arne Jacobsen’s furniture meets McDonald’s

McDonald’s? Really? Yes. To be more precise, it is the McDonald’s on Edgware Road in London, where the company is testing a new design formula that, if it works, could be rolled out across Europe. I’m not sure what I think about this. It’s nice that they finally invest in stylish interior design but it’s weird to connect Jacobsen’s furniture and McDonald’s.
