Check out my BehindTheBurner.com review of Gestalten‘s awesome new book, Eat Out! It surveys the most interesting, contemporary restaurant concepts and designs, and includes wild restaurant spots like a dinner in the sky (table suspended 50 meters in the air by a crane) and an installation that envelops guests in a vapor of Gin and tonic water. After about an hour, it’s estimated visitors imbibed approximately 1 gin and tonic—through their lungs and eyeballs!

Gestalten‘s new book by the same title – Arcadia: Cross Country Style, Architecture and Design – demonstrates how modern design continues to facilitate a lifestyle in tune with our natural surroundings, featuring incredible architecture, bespoke furniture and interior design projects from around the globe.

Droog‘s “Tableau Tablecloth” was created by photographer Maurice Scheltens using the photogram technique, and reveals the aftermath of a (successful?) dinner party. This super-cool tablecloth comes in 6 and 8-person setting sizes that’ll cost you a pretty penny, running $560 and $630 each.

Personal Edition Crochet Chair by Marcel Wanders

This November, the Philadelphia Museum of Art welcomes visionary Dutch designer Marcel Wanders in a self-designed, self-curated exhibition called “Marcel Wanders: Daydreams.” This will be a dreamlike, multimedia installation of objects personally selected by Wanders to represent pivotal points in his 20+ year career. Video images, lighting, and sound will illuminate his creative development over the years.

New films—detailing Wanders’s design process and philosophy in projects ranging from manufactured products, hotel interiors, and design art—will also make their public debut at the retrospective. The films’ soundscapes will provide Wanders’s personal views on design.
