BANK is minimalist money box made of elastic rubber by BIG-GAME design studio. We have featured the Lausanne based studio before. I just love their outspoken, minimalist and colorful products. And like many of their other products BANK has a playfull touch. The usage is simple: slip coins in the slit, press it and turn it upside down to get the coins back. The only downside I see, compared to a ‘traditional’ piggy bank, is that one can retrieve the money back a bit too easily ;). BANK is produced by Praxis, Hong Kong.

Oh, dear. The sound of the dreaded drill from a recent dentist visit still lingers. The good news is that dental patients, in München can now reduce physical discomfort from dental procedures and still keep a healthy smile. Weissraum Dental Surgery, by Stuttgart-based Ippolito Fleitz Group, has been named “Germany’s most beautiful dental practice” for 2010. The design space takes full advantage of the building’s original historic character and architectural features; the stucco ornaments and ceiling heights are superb. The term ‘weissraum’, which means white space, comes alive through a clean design of white architecture. The walls and ceilings glow in bright white. The white washed oak floor and the purple sofa in the seating area break the monastic whiteness of the space—a relaxed lounge-like, calming atmosphere. A progressive architectural translation of the term “white space.” I am left wanting more of Ippolito Fleitz Group’s understated goodness.
