Christo Guelov is an artist from Madrid who must have played with LEGO blocks when he was younger. Why? Well his latest installation looks like a real-life version of a toy bridge we must have built 100 times when we were kids. As part of the “Let’s Color Gothenburg” project, Guelov designed the Älvsborgsbron bridge, which is in Gothenburg, Sweden, to look like it was built from massive LEGO bricks. Smooth, colorful, and in varying sizes, the painted bricks look plucked from the giant bin we had as kids. Better still, the piece was worked on by unemployed youths in the area in an effort to train them to be professional painters and thus help them find steady work. Now all it needs are some boxy cars piloted by little yellow men to drive across it.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
