LA VILLA

This quaint old bungalow turned hotel is nestled in the heart of Pondicherry’s ‘old quarters’. This old property was re-designed drawing from it’s environs  incorporating the distinctive fusion of Tamil and French Culture.

The floors were treated with handmade tiles from Tamil Nadu, while a lot of the wood work around this boutique hotel was resurrected from old houses, to create contemporary pieces. It is austere and luxurious at once.

Do you remember when tabs didn’t exist in browsers?

Oh shit, i was feeling nostalgic about the internet of yore, but then I read this and… I can’t handle working without tabs. I’ll stop being nostalgic now, ok.

Japanese artist and student Takayuki Hori created this awesome (and award-winning) series of eight translucent origami skeletal animals entitled Oritsunagumono, which translates to mean ‘things folded and connected’.

Printed on translucent paper, each piece represents an endangered species native to Japan’s coastal waterways and contains a foreign object inside their body - human-made detritus - representing the environmental threats faced by these animals. They are hauntingly beautiful memento mori for fragile wildlife struggling to cope in a hazardous ecosystem.
