Studio North was commissioned to refit an old elevator shaft in a converted warehouse loft in Calgary; they built a tall, narrow library with climbable shelves whose hand- and foot-holds retract into the shelving.

Libretaxi is an open source project that lets anyone become a rideshare driver in less than a minute; it has more than 20,000 users worldwide, and is maintained by Roman Pushkin, who started the project in December 2016 and is now planning to quit his job and work on it full time.

Mister Alphabet is an action-figure designed to cleverly bend and contort into every letter of the Latin alphabet; the website is long on trademark warnings and arty Instagram photos, but short on details, like, “Is this an object of commerce?” and “If so, where does one buy it?” (via Kottke)

When you can’t wait for the world’s longest meeting to end, the mindless leg bouncing makes your boredom obvious and just annoys everybody else. Everyone knows the TPS reports need the damn cover sheet, but some sadistic colleague keeps forgetting, probably on purpose just to eat into your lunch hour. Enough is enough!While serving a […]

What could be more fun than a slingshot that shoots tiny airplanes? A slingshot that shoots tiny glowing airplanes of course! These toy planes are outfitted with ultra-bright LEDs, so you can fly all night without losing them in the trees.Whether you are a regular-sized child, or an overgrown adult one, these light-up flyers offer […]

You know the drill. You go to the dentist and they ask you how often you floss. You lie through your teeth and say, “every day!” (Bonus points if you have some cilantro or chives stuck in your gums from lunch). You don’t want to keep up the charade any longer, but rubbing that tiny strand […]

I have a television like that. I hate it.

Needs to have room for Alias DVD series.

Turns out the OÄNDLIG wardrobe I bought from Ikea is the same. I’ve been working on it for 3 years now, and the newest section doesn’t fit in my yard, even. When will this madness end?!

i think it’s cool :)

Reminds me o the no. 216 cabinet, with doors sized according to ISO sizes of paper: A1-A2-A3 etc.

This is not Modulor. Le Corbu cries in his grave (which is Modulor)

At the risk of being pedantic, these drawers seem to be in the Golden Ratio (phi) not Fibonacci. The ratios of successive Fibonacci numbers tend to phi in the limit.

Phi is defined to be the unique number such that if a rectangle’s sides have a ratio phi, and you remove a square based on the smaller side, the remaining rectangle’s sides have ratio phi. It is no less cool than the Fibonacci series, by the way; look it up.

At risk of being even more pedantic:

The drawer’s ratios are squares at 1, 1, 2 (smallest drawer built), 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 (largest drawer built), all of which are Fibonacci series numbers.

Here’s an image so you don’t have to look it up: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/93/Fibonacci_spiral_34.svg/180px-Fibonacci_spiral_34.svg.png

You’re right, my bad for not actually reading the text and just looking at the front view of the cabinet.

You let me be right on the internet!

Hats off to you, Sir.

At the risk of being evener morer pedantica, they’ve stuffed up the opening sequence of the Fibonacci series.

They’ve left a gap for the draw that is meant to represent 0, which in itself doesn’t make sense, and additionally the gap is smaller than the drawer that is meant to represent 1. There is no second drawer equal to 1.This makes it clear that drawer number 2, is not in fact twice the width of the drawer that represents 1, as it is only as wide as a single drawer representing 1 and the lesser space representing 0.

Additionally there are only 6 drawers, so even with the missing 1, they don’t reach 21, but rather 13.

This observation is what motivated my first post. However, if you assume that the smallest drawer shown is a 2, and that the hole represents two 1s stacked on top of each other, then all works out, except figuring out what happened to the two missing 1s.

I suspect the little girl had something to do with it.

That would go nicely with a Sierpinski carpet.

And to think, I’ve just been leaving my pebbles, twigs, and flower petals out on the ground in my yard like a slob!

And I raise you – My Squared-Square Cabinet!

That is nice. I just bookmarked the Make Math Monday article.
