Artco Pepsi Artist Series

With the success of the Moutain Dew Green Label engaging various artists in a series of designer cans, Artco and Mountain Dew’s parent company Pepsi did a similar artist project. Instead of introducing a new can similar to the Green Label project, the Artco Pepsi series featured work on conventional cans. The list of artists range from around the world spanning the Americas, Asia and Europe.

The Nautilus House: Live In A Giant Designer Snail Shell

1 04 2008

Live In A Giant Designer Snail Shell

The Nautilus House is a cartoon-like combination of bright vibrant colors and a gigantic shell-shaped design. It’s a real house, located in Mexico City and occupied by a young couple and their two small children. Not only does the Nautilus House look like a giant work of art, but because it’s built from a mix of chicken wire and concrete (among other things) and takes cues from a Nautilus shell (hence the name) it’s also an earthquake-proof and maintenance-free structure. And that’s always handy.

The inside decor is all about smooth rounded surfaces, rich colors, and greenery all over the place. And although the home is surrounded by Mexico City on 3 sides, the West side has most of the windows and faces out to a beautiful view of the mountains.

I really like it, but for anything other than a vacation home it might get old — living in this house must make a person feel like they’re in a tropical version of Whoville. [via Luxist]
