The Happiness Brewery is an art project by french blog Happiness is a Beginning. What they do is sharing emotions that people send them by email and print them on labels, finding place on different sized bottles. Currently they are working hard to make those objects produced for people who are interested in having their personal potions and they’ll set a price for it soon. At the end of the day though, it’s a ‘love share’ project which might lead to a book or an exhibition in Paris. They select stories for their emotional potential, trying not to be redundant and keeping the original energy behind this idea. The bottles are empty, up to you to put a perfume, an alcohol or anything you want to put in.
Inspired by the song of Jay Chaou, Malaysian artist Hong Yi decided to create a series of portraits using nothing but coffe stains on the bottom of a mug. The 26 year old artist drew inspiration for the portrait from one of the Chou’s songs “Secret”, whose opening lines is about lifting a coffee cup off the saucer. Hong Yi’s portrait consist of hundreds of individual coffee stain rings, many of them broken and imperfect like fallen autumn leaves, to form a whole portrait.

The relief organisation MISEREOR is always looking for new ways to promote its, “2 Euros Help” initiative. Table Football for Africa is an interactive donation box in the form of a table football game, complete with all the adversities you might expect at a typical African kick-about. The 2 Euro donation goes directly towards promoting sports for children and young people in Rwanda and South Africa. A facebook app spread word of the campaign on the social web with a ticker and live stream, drawing attention to the initiative and encouraging more giving.

Duffy London design studio are pleased to introduce to you, the UP Coffee Table, designed by Christopher Duffy. Working with the illusion of levitation and buoyancy, the UP coffee table is a playful trompe l’oeil, giving the impression that a piece of glass is being suspended by small balloons. This table is a limited edition of twenty, hand made in the UK, and designed without compromise to manufacturing processes, and so are extremely time consuming to create.
