The Powers Construction Site Shack isn’t trying to be a fancy tiny home. It’s really designed as a portable workspace and shelter. The design copies pitch-roofed homes, only way smaller. Constructed with weathering corten steel that requires no painting and adopts a resilient, rust-colored (but not rusting) appearance, along with construction-grade lumber, the Site Shack can easily be transported to just about any location via flatbed truck, and it requires no plumbing or pre-made foundation. Though it has virtually no creature comforts, it has a small cold-rolled steel stove for heat and can be outfitted with a hidden steel door. The prototype was used on a job site by Powers Construction and then relocated to the wilderness for non-work purposes. It’s a unique approach to portable work and play space that looks perfectly at home in urban and rural environments.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
