This Portable Hot Tub Will Warm Up Your Next Camping Trip

When you go camping, naturally some of the conveniences and luxuries of home remain far away, and that’s usually a good thing as you reconnect with nature and friends. But as nice as roughing it is in many ways, you might miss hot showers, soft beds, and perhaps your hot tub.


Now there’s a solution to that last one. The Nomad hot tub easily packs into a small space and uses a thermosyphoning heating coil that runs off propane to heat water to a toasty 160 degrees. This awesome product would be ideal for the tiny house folks and glamping fanatics who want the added luxury of a hot tub without the maintenance and weight.

Who’s a good lamp? YOU ARE a good lamp!

When describing various pieces of furniture and accessories around your home, words like “chic” and “modern” might come into play, but chances are you don’t look at your bedside lamp and describe it as “adorable”. If you own a Luminose “puppy lamp” you might. Designed by Elizabeth Zimmerer and Márton Lente, both of whom love dogs and interior design, the lamp is probably the cutest thing we’ve seen recently. It’s sure to generate plenty of conversation as well, thanks to its clever design.



Easily change the puppy lamp position from sitting to standing, or even downward-facing dog.





The cord wrapped around it’s neck is made to imitate a leash.

The Opera Camper Brings High Design To Camping

Stowaway trailers like this aren’t exactly new, and for decades people have hitched them to their vehicles, roaming from state to state in search of adventure. For the most part, normal trailer designs remain largely uninspired. The Opera trailer on the other hand, is anything but normal. Design inspiration comes from the Sydney Opera House, and the company behind the product, Your Suite in Nature, built this luxury mobile “popup” home with both form and function in mind.

Tucked away, it looks like a normal camper.


Once the tent starts unfolding however…



It turns into a thing of beauty.

iPod Speaker Dock Made From Supercar Exhaust Pipes

Automotive enthusiasts have strong feelings about which exhaust sounds best. Some prefer the throaty and thunderous American V8; others like the raspy V12 of a Ferrari, and still others may prefer the melodic sound of an inline six-cylinder from BMW. Regardless of your preference for any particular engine + exhaust combo, we can all probably agree that the fine examples from the Italian company ixoost sounds best of all (or at least our wives can!).


Each speaker dock comes fitted with a 8, 10, or 12-cylinder exhaust from a supercar. Conveniently located in Modena, Italy, home to the Ferrari factory, this project is the brainchild of Matteo Panini and Micro Pecorari. These speakers are custom made to order and include a working subwoofer, drivers, and full integration with iPhones. In case you’re wondering, the price comes in at around $6,500 and like many supercars, the supply is limited.

Glowing Tree Ring Tables Light Up The Night

Last week we shared some incredible glowing tree stump lanterns made by a legally blind artist from Australia. Today we bring you a different sort of glowing tree stump, which is equally impressive. Made by Justin Beaumont of Straight Line Design, these tree rings are fashioned from Pine Beetle wood. Each stump is sliced and then coated with a colored resin top. While they look pretty cool during the day, as-is, the real magic happens at night when the ring patterns light up thanks to embedded lights beneath the surface.




Straight Line Designs, Inc. is based in Vancouver, British Columbia and these examples were originally created for the Summer Lights show. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like these ever went into any formal production, though we imagine Justin could be commissioned to produce some more for anyone interested.
