A goodbye with a pleasant song by The Postmarks, a band that creates a sound described as "a suburban bedroom symphony suffused with post-teenage heartbreak and painstaking pointillism."

Happy holidays and see you next month!

HeadHoods is an idea that started from a good coffee buzz and the thought that the hood is such an unutialized piece of fabric.


Wearing one is almost like putting on another identity.

Greetings from Switzerland

Happy Holidays everyone. I won't be posting for 1 month as Fabrica students, myself included, are on one-month holiday.

Enjoy summer!

Pia Knight is leaving the building


After a year and a half, our favorite bloody blonde is leaving, and this is what she had to say:

Does it really feel like it's been a year and a half for you, and has it really hit you that you're leaving?
No, not at all, its a cliche but true. Time is very strange here the days drag on but the weeks fly by. I can't believe my time has come to be released. But i'm pleased that i'm leaving before Reed predicted in 2009. Shit it is hitting me now, i'm sat next to my boxes.

How do you feel about adjusting to civilization again?
Im sure i'll be a bit of a mess for a while for so many emotional reasons, but the answer is normally at the bottom of a glass for me so it should be ok. I've great friends at home who'll help me drown my sorrows. A small adjustment will be not saying ciao and double kissing. I'll sound like a pretentious cow doing that in London. But maybe i try and bring the two kisses rule back home with me, im sure after many many head buts and awkward moments my friends will learn that Italians do it better.

What exactly are your plans for after Fabrica?

Well, im incredibly lucky to have somehow blagged my way into the Royal Designers summer school. Yes i did say Royal Designers, not sure how but I did. After that, who knows what the future holds for me so long as I don't have to return to designing whore cards in London again i'll be happy! Oh yeah and i'm going to get fit, stop smoking for the 12th time and buy a new phone so I can text properly.

What was your favorite moment here?
Everything. I can't name just one you know me and how much I love everyone and everything. But ok to mention a few would have to be last weekend with my friends Jasmin, Scary Wendy and Jose. Unforgettable. Cosimo asking me if my 'teets' were clean, and every other hilarious language slip with him after that. Running from the police with Nat and all the times we woke up together laughing. Only ever speaking 'yonkerly' gibberish Irish with Pat and Alex. Fernando making love to a chair. Reed showing us how to drink up and deep throat at the same time. Constant ichatting with Mike. And everyday with Matt Prins.

Favorite things about living in italy?
Friends. My bike. Never being scared. Deep fried mozzarella balls. Wine. Summer. Pea day at Mensa. Capiscoing niente. Strange stalkers (it was a big compliment really, would never happen at home) Dancing to ipods. Eclectic dinner parties. Being incredibly tactile. And most recently tinned mushrooms.

Last words?
Never take life here seriously. Just have fun and don't worry about the consequences of living in a goldfish bowl, its more fun that way. You can always have therapy when you get out.

The mass exodus continues with Pia. It's a sad day in Fabrica, knowing it's Pia's last. It's raining, too. But maybe we're going to Enio for lunch. Anyway, we'll miss you, you royal piece.

brooklyn's floating pool


So the Neptune Foundation is apparently this group of people who really liked the floating baths that traveled around NYC in the late 19th century and wanted to recreate some today. Well after years of planning and construction, they have done it. The first floating pool has opened this summer, stationed at Brooklyn Bridge Park with of course an amazing view of lower Manhatty. The pool is open to everyone free of charge. They host like 1000 people a day. That's a lot of pee!

OFF, the light switch hook, provides a hanging function when in the off position. It is a fully functional light switch. Designed by Scott Amron with a thought to persuade people to use less energy by providing an alternate function. Scott Amron has designed a range of quirky products for the day when there's no electric power and you begin to wonder what to do will all those powerless outlets all around you.

Among other things, you could buy a tooth brush for $3 that points the water from the basin straight to your mouth for rinsing. Or you could even spend $1,750 for an original prototype of this same tooth brush.

Click here for more out of the ordinary product concepts.
