Inspired by the body of water that sits beside these Singaporean residences, Greg Shand Architects designed the Nautical Lines Residences, which has a sinuous wave envelope and wide overhangs. Mimicking the look of a boat, the modern residential units have ceilings whose undersides are clad in recycled teak, which, according to the architects, are “reminiscent of a boat hull.” Even the interiors feature nautical-inspired elements, like flowing-curved bathroom walls, fixtures, flooring, and ceiling materials that echo the fluidity of water.

A Terrifying Baby Bed That’s Gone Viral—But One That Baby Loves

After finding out his childhood friend was having a boy, Staten Island-based sculptor and toy designer Joseph Reginella designed a bed that was inspired by the iconic monster from the 1975 horror film Jaws. Using Styrofoam coated in plastic and painted in appropriate colours, the baby bed features a menacing shark about to swallow a small boat. Reginella apparently had the idea while working on another project.

“We made an airplane bed for some little kid in California, and I thought it would be funny if someone would order a terrifying bed instead of something mainstream,” he says. Want to own this frighteningly popular baby bed? Check out the sculptor’s toy line’s website here.
