The Pantone Hotel in Brussels

Whatever your mood, the Pantone Hotel promises to have a room—and palette—to match. The Pantone Hotel is a themed, boutique hotel in Brussels which is based on Pantone colours. The hotel was designed by Michel Penneman and Olivier Hannaert and all rooms include snapshots of Brussels taken by Belgian photographer Victor Levy. The floors and rooms of the hotel feature different Pantone colours and palettes—from bright and vivid to subdued. Definitely worth a look if you’re looking for a unique, colourful hotel in Brussels!

Beautiful Norwegian Passport Design by Neue

Passport design isn’t usually something that gets people talking. That’s not the case with the new designs for Norwegian passports by studio Neue, which have been creating a lot of buzz over the last week.

The colourful, clean designs are based on Norway’s beautiful landscape. (Shining the main pages under UV light even adds the northern lights to the landscape!) Neue’s designs won a competition run by Norway’s National Police Directorate for redesigning Norway’s passport and national ID card. The unique designs definitely take passport design to a new level!

‘We’re Fryin’ Out Here’ Sculpture by Andrew Hankin

Something unusual landed on Bondi beach this month – a massive frying pan! Every year sculptures appear around Sydney’s coast as part of Sculpture by the Sea, which is a cool, annual exhibition promoting outdoor community art.

This year a quirky addition was Andrew Hankin’s ‘We’re Fryin’ Out Here’ – an installation of a massive frying pan on Bondi beach. The pan was placed on the sand for visitors to interact with and sunbathe in. The artist said the sculpture’s message was ‘be careful cooking yourself this summer’. The sculpture was one of over one hundred others placed along the coast this November. Check them out here.

Lumino City is a beautifully crafted game that brims with creativity and already stole some hearts at our CAD studio. Amazingly, the whole set for the game was handmade from paper, card, wood, miniature lights and electric motors. The set was built as a model city–which was ten foot high!–before being digitised for the game. The game is a sequel to the popular puzzle adventure game Lume and is coming out this November for Windows and MacOS. Solving puzzles while exploring this unique city is sure to be an inspiring and exciting experience! We can’t wait!
