Surtsey is a truly unique piece of land in Iceland that was formed in 1963
25 jun 2018 09:00

Surtsey is a piece of land that formed in 1963, after a huge volcanic eruption that has lasted for 3 years. Now, the land is used for scientific research and observations. The focus of the work is to better understand how an ecosystem forms from scratch, without any human impact. There are only a couple of scientists that are allowed on the island’s premises, making it one of a few forbidden places on earth.

10 mar 2015 14:02

Robert Kolenik, a Dutch designer who focuses on high-end sustainable design, has created a stunning kitchen counter-top that has a beautiful large aquarium for a base.
