In this blog you will find the links and some images as I promised in the Sample Board Online July newsletter
The Wash Lamp
As mentioned in the July newsletter Alex Kovatchev has generated a great buzz with her ‘Wash Lamp’ exhibited at the European Lighting Fair in Frankfurt. The exciting eco friendly lamps designed by Alex are created from washing machine drums. That’s the part we wash our clothes in what a brilliant way to use recycled parts.
Humour keeps us healthy
If you have had trouble with the link to the ‘The Science Daily’ article in the newsletter on how a sense of humour helps keep people healthy and increases their chances of reaching retirement age. You can use the link below. The article quoting a study conducted by the University Of Science & Technology (NTNU) in Norway as a source can be found here http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/06/100604073717.htm
Tale of Two Brains
I am sure you would enjoy the hilarious youtube video The Tale of Two Brains by Mark Gunger. He explains how male and female brains are different. It is well worth checking out this video. I always think it is worthwhile adding to our understanding of the human brain. This sort of knowledge can be helpful to us in our personal and professional life. Hope you enjoy the video.

The overall winner for best restaurant design is the ‘Galvin La Chapelle’ in London designed by designLSM. The best bar award was awarded to ‘The Tote’ in India designed by Serie Architects. You can find images and details of all the winners on the restaurant and bar design awards website.
