Gyva Grafika is a design studio in Kaunas, Lithuania, that was tasked with redesigning the bathroom inside Galeria Urbana, a restaurant also in the city of Kaunas. The only stipulation? They needed to keep the old tiles already on the walls of the stall. The studio came up with a clever solution, deciding to photograph part of the local neighborhood and create the art you see here. Dubbed the “WC for Architects,” the bathroom now looks like it’s outside a tiny apartment complex. The project has drawn quite a bit of praise and Gyva Grafika has decided to sell similar tiles if you want to transform your bathroom as well.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
