Christian Louboutin's favorite table


Said Christian Louboutin:

This table, which I bought about ten years ago, was made in the early 1970s by Maison Jansen, a design house in Paris.

It has several qualities I love.

The first is that it's an entertaining table: you press a button and it opens and closes, almost like a game.

The second is its beautiful shape, like a cut stone.

It also reminds me of my father.

He was a carpenter and was always showing me beautiful things he made.

Only recently have I realized the impact this had on me.

As a teenager I was attracted to open, loud, and funny people like my mother. 

My father was quiet and solitary, always listening to music on his own.

I think that's why I never acknowledged his influence at the time.

[From the June/July 2019 issue of the Economist's 1843 magazine in its feature "My Life in Six Objects," which visited with Louboutin.]

Where's the octopus? A master of camouflage gives a lesson

Videre est credere — but first you have to videre.

Video caption: "When marine biologist Roger Hanlon captured the first scene in this video he started screaming. Hanlon, senior scientist at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, studies camouflage in cephalopods — squid, cuttlefish, and octopus. They are masters of optical illusion. Above, some of Hanlon's top video picks of sea creatures going in and out of hiding."

Seetroën Anti-Motion Glasses

Screen Shot 2019-06-09 at 6.19.54 AM

From websites:

Put on these glasses and motion sickness will soon be a thing of the past, thanks to Boarding Ring technology.

Four rings filled with blue liquid "recreate" the horizon to put your senses back in sync.

• Put them on as soon as the first symptoms occur (can be worn over prescription glasses)

• Wear the glasses for 10 to 12 minutes so that your senses can resynchronize 

• Take the glasses off and enjoy your journey

Note: The consumption of anti-motion sickness drugs (or any other psychoactive substance) in parallel with the wearing of Seetroën glasses affects their effect.

The glasses resynchronize vision with the perceptions of the inner ear, a process disrupted by the action of these drugs.
