What am I noting today?

April 29, 2019

Today in 1913, the modern zipper was patented as the “hookless fastener,” although in 1851, Elias Howe invented something similar to a zipper that he called the “automatic continuous clothing closer.”

Modern zippers have taken off in design, materials and as fashion statements.  And, of course, without a zipper our jeans would just not be the same.

What do I want?

I want these

A Ukrainian blind company called HoleRoll shared this fun set of concept blinds that feature iconic cityscapes cut into blackout curtains. The silhouettes of famous skyscrapers become apparent as light streams in through the window. The images were posted back in 2014 and it looks like their website is currently down, so not sure if they’re available anywhere. Could make a fun DIY project? (via Laughing Squid, Reddit)

Update 1: Aalto+Aalto has a similar concept from 2006 called Better View.

Update 2: It looks like their website is back up.
