This is a Sling Swingset designed by WMB Studio. “Part of the annual Winter Stations project that transforms lifeguard stations on Toronto’s Woodbine Beach, the Sling Swing was one of five selected designs and revises the idea of a relaxing summer deck chair into a wintery piece of public art. Following the competition theme of ‘warmth’, its swathes of bright orange canvas are suspended from a grid of steel poles that encompass the station and create twenty-one ‘slings’ in which people can swing, huddle or simply sit and contemplate the sea view. When unoccupied, the loops of fabric sway in the breeze to create a highly animated, vibrant weather van. ”

Women-only co-working spaces are opening across the world. In effort to push for gender equality. Workspaces and clubs geared towards women, like Seattle's The Riveter, Toronto's Make Lemonade, London's AllBright and New York's The Wing, opened. Spaces are changing the way business women work. The founders say these spaces allow for "women to thrive in a often male dominated space."

"French designer Philippe Starck has created the interiors for the habitation module of the "world's first" commercial space station, which is due to open in 2020. Designed for the privately-owned space exploration company, Axiom Space, Starck's will house expeditions to the space station. Axiom commissioned Starck to create the interiors of the crew quarters, dining area and galley habitation module for the Axiom Station, which is connected to the International Space Station (ISS).Starck wanted his interior design to evoke the feeling of being weightless in the womb, which is similar to astronauts floating in zero gravity. 

The interior of the space craft are designed to enhance life in orbit, and to provide an added level of luxury to its forthcoming space station. Axiom recently announced the launch of its space tourism program, which will offer  10-day expeditions to their space station connected to ISS at the cost of £41 million ($55 million) per ticket. Before the first launch, which is set to occur in 2020, visitors will undergo a 15-week training experience that will be conducted side-by-side with national astronauts." via Dezeen
