I get LOADS of product pitches in my email, most of which I ignore because frankly, I don't want to encourage more of them. But yesterday there were a couple of cool product items I thought I'd pass along. I think the stained glass wall decals from Blik are awesome, such a good idea.

There were some great moments — pieces I loved, spaces that sang -- but when all was said and done there just wasn't enough WOW on the floor. Riffing on the theme of How Do You Work? only BlackLab Architects really delivered with a simple but magnificently effective backdrop wall made of coloured pencil crayons. It was the strongest moment in the entire show.
