Selectism | Around the Web

01. Panerai Manifattura Exhibition Hong Kong

“In Hong Kong as in Singapore, Officine Panerai showed off its manifattura or manufacture status to great fanfare with the Panerai Manifattura Collection Exhibition.” (luxuryinsider)

02. TREETOP OFFICE: Eat Your Heart Out, Cubicle Warrior (above)

“One look at this office nestled amid the treetops and you might contemplate how to change your life in order to have a workspace with such an incredible view. Peter Frazier, a customer experience consultant, decided after years of working at an office and gaining over 50 pounds that he needed to make a change in his life – so he built this incredible office in the woods. Set amongst the trees above Chuckanut Bay in Bellingham, Washington, his lofted cube serves as a workspace and guest room, and it has a green roof on top too.” (inhabitant)

03. Spec Furniture’s Simple Sleeper

“Having a sofa in the office is a great thing if you are on a killer deadline and end up staying in the office to later hours. Grabbing a couple hours sleep on the sofa and getting back to work can be handy, or simply crashing after you upload your project and are done. Having a sleeper sofa can be even better, but somehow feels inappropriate in the office.” (workalicious)

04. Hear Broken Social Scene Cover Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart”

“When you think “Broken Social Scene covering Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’,” you probably imagine something hazy and beautiful and waltz-y and tortured. And that’s exactly what the revamp– to be featured on the upcoming soundtrack to The Time Traveler’s Wife– sounds like.” (pitchfork)
