http://designdautore.blogspot.it/2012/02/at-dawn-on-saturday-5-march-2011.html At dawn on Saturday 5 March, National Geographic Channel and a team of scientists, engineers and two world class balloon pilots successfully launched a house measuring 16 feet by 16 feet and 18 feet high, using 300 eight-foot coloured weather balloons from a private airfield east of Los Angeles. The launch – inspired by the Disney/Pixar film “Up” – set a new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted. The house and balloons measured more than 10 storeys high and reached an altitude of over 10,000 feet, flying for approximately one hour. The record will be part of a new National Geographic Channel series called “How Hard Can It Be?” which will premiere in 2012.

Bar Design : The El Tubo Bar, Lima, Peru This stunning modern bar was designed by Felipe Assadi and Franciesca Pulido and is located in Lima, Peru. The El Tubo Bar features a number of unique and totally unconventional elements that really make it stand out. The space which had to be used for the construction of the bar was two rooms of the second level of one of the pavilions of the palace. Rest of the building is part of the city of Lima cultural heritage. These two spaces live together within an independent and self-referring element. A tube. The tube was drilled on the middle part of one of its walls and the middle of its ceilling generating from these holes the single blue-violet light entrance to the space. This highlights the idea that this elements floats inside the building. Inside this tube, a long futuristic bar arranged the space making the concept looking like a single element. The space near by the bar was arranged with five sculptures and huge frame pictures. The furniture which is located in the ‘hot tube’ were created under the concept of a membrance that runs along its backing structure, consistent with the lightness idea. All the furniture,dishes, everything in this bar was designed following a very abstract and neutral aesthetic. (j)
