There’s just something about the raw and industrial feel of a shipping container that makes it the perfect blank canvas for building projects. You could build one of your very own shipping container houses that will make you want to live in the box, but if you want something equally as awesome without the commitment of ownership, consider a stay at the Ora-ïto designed Flying Nest concept hotel. Flying Nest was designed by Ora-ïto for AccorHotels to “offer mobile and unusual accommodation from fully equipped containers with all the comfort of a cozy room, which does not alter the natural landscape and low environmental impact.” All of that makes Flying Nest an unusual concept that gives you a bright living space, cozy bedroom, modern bathroom and private terrace while still being able to be setup in a number of different terrains and locations in only half a day. Whether it’s for skiing, a music festival or an epic road race, Flying Nest is a portable set of accommodations that has everything you’re looking for in a five star hotel.

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.
