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.

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.
