IKEA Home Of Tomorrow has created this beautiful green space in a 120-year-old abandoned building in Poland. The 2,700-square-foot apartment is filled with over 600 plants. It shows that even though 70% of the world’s population will live in urban areas by 2050, you can still stay in touch with nature in your home.

The green space contains veggies, fruits, herbs, all ready to be grown and harvested. It also showcases a variety of ways you can grow plants in your home, including hydroponics and soil-less methods.

The space created by Polish designers Joanna Jurga, Paulina Grabowska, and Justyna Puchalska will serve as a workshop base for IKEA employees.

These DIY ‘Sunlight Clocks’ that put a modern calming spin on an ancient sundial clock

If you thought you’d never get fascinated by a clock, think again.

These modern sundial clocks were designed by Linda B to challenge how we perceive the passage of time. For some of us, glancing at the time can be straight-up anxiety-inducing. But these clocks use soft natural lighting to induce a sense of calm and relaxation. And they are supposed to be set up in a room where you do exactly that – relax, meditate, read, and rest after a long day.

The sunlight clocks come in two versions. While the first one is a pretty straight-forward wall clock, the other one takes the form of a DIY concrete block. It displays the time on flat surfaces and you can build it yourself.
