If I Ever Go to Copenhagen, I Know Where I'm Going...

Restaurant Radio was highlighted on Remodelista today and I couldn't help but repost it because (a) I love their aesthetic, (b) I love their vision + purpose, and (c) the food looks amazing!

The restaurant is owned by "gastronomic entrepreneur" Claus Meyer, who has a bevy of sustainable farms and restaurants in the Nordic world. Additionally, he serves as host of "New Scandinavian Cooking" - a food and travel series targeting an international audience. Meyer believes that eating more vegetables and less meat is a precondition for health and a sustainable future, and refers to this attitude as "hedonistic sustainability."

Not an innovative idea, just plain smart.

Winter Project - Wall Installation

I ran across this really cool idea from ixxi - a modular connecting system for large wall installations. I am going to take this idea and make my own large wall mural this winter. I just need to find the right image. Will keep you posted on progress and the final result...
