This glimmering polished aluminum keyboard pays homage to the streamlined, “Machine Age” styling of the 1920’s with a glossy acrylic faceplate, reflective silver keys in a tall Art Deco font, and stepped layers of polished metal.
Another classic is this USB flash drive by the Steamworkshop. It is made of reused copper sheets and tubing and a carefully placed coil. If not aware of the dimensions, one might mistake the flash drive for a sleek case for foldable glasses. – See more at: http://1800recycling.com/2011/05/incredible-recycling-steampunk-usb-flash-drives#sthash.OPf7umA6.dpuf
Time travel, steampunk and botany inspire Victorian-themed Indian restaurant
A new Indian restaurant and cocktail bar has opened in London with a design that pays tribute to the scientists and botanists of the Victorian era and their explorations in the jungles of India. Walls and shelves of the restaurant are filled with authentic 19th century artefacts evoking adventurous tropical explorations, such as apothecary bottles, microscopes, looking glasses, walking canes, jars of plant specimens and original botanical prints. In addition to its tropical flourishes, the design features examples of Steampunk style and lighting, industrial parts and custom-designed metalwork used by Victorian engineers such as Isambard Kingdom Brunel. This is juxtaposed with 21st century pop light fittings and luxury suiting fabrics. “Victorian Britain is a fabulous treasure trove of scientific, artistic and literary works,â Chebaane told CLAD. âAfter reading dozen of books from the 19th century, I edited and condensed them into one narrative arc and developed an aesthetic language to design an experience relevant to todayâs youth, while also being inclusive to a more mature audience. The result is a mixture of Victorian fantasy and postmodernist design.”

The Chamber de Commerce alias Cdc is an absolutely fabulous Stock Exchange location, located in a busy city and surrounded by ugly concrete buildings. Only the four relative narrow passages are giving a small glimpse of what the inside of this beautiful queen has to shown. The current building is a reconstruction from 1872. The original building dates from 1531, this late Gothic styled stock market has been burned twice [1583 and 1858]. The CdC is built on top of an existing street intersection with originally no roof, only four covered streets, the still existing and impressive galleries. Around 1853 the square and galleries where covered with a dome modeled on the Crystal Palace in London. Today this beautiful trade building is in a dilapidated state! The wooden floor is completely loose, walls are starting to crumble, painted wands and ceilings are fading to grey. Moisture and pigeons have left their devastating marks. And the painted emblems on the stunningly curved main ceiling are rotting and falling down! In 2003 the Stock Exchange was closed following a report on fire safety. Since then nothing more was done to protect this abandoned work of art. There where plans for a new future as an exhibition hall and ballroom. In 2008 the city announced that a private investor would renovate the Stock Exchange and would make an agora with stores. They would also have space for a grand cafe, restaurant and several small shops. The city issued a building permit for the ambitious plan of a luxurious hotel, but in practice very little happened to give the building new live! In the outbuildings we see evidence of work, so possible one has yet begun the previously scheduled work. When the renovation of this monumental building will begin remains unclear. Amazing how a building with such a long history could be abandoned, left behind into decline.

Ptolemy Elrington spends his time collecting hub caps lost on the streets of Britain, and transforming them into impressive-looking animal sculptures.
To prove that one persons junk is another mans treasure, 43-year-old Ptolemy Elrington has chosen to use reclaimed materials, like hub caps, as the main medium of his art. After finishing college, the Bradford-based sculptor lived close to a sharp curve where cars would often lose their hub caps. He began collecting them from the roadside ditch, and planned to turn them all into an original suit of armor, but noticing they had a marine look about them, he decided to mold them into fish.
After he gave his first sculptures to his family, as gifts, friends started coming to him asking for some hub-cap sculptures of their own. Elrington realized the business potential of his art, and now spends most of his time creating animal sculptures in his workshop. Because his work materials are practically free, he only charges customers for his time, about 75 British pounds per day. His most expensive work so far, a 10 meter tall dragon made out of 200 lost hub caps cost 3,000 pounds, but most of his works are sold for a few hundreds.
A strong supporter of recycling, Ptolemy Elrington only uses discarded materials. He never buys hubcaps, he always uses lost ones, and even the wire used to tie the hubcap pieces together comes from the junkyard.
After seven years of hub cap sculpting, Elrington says he is a fan of luxury car hub caps, from BMW or Mercedes, because they can be flexed more,and hardly ever snap
Over 150 years old, the Laxey Wheel, a.k.a Lady Isabella, is the largest working waterwheel in the world at 72 feet in diameter. As an American, I have seen many water-powered grist mills on the small wooded streams of the Appalachian Mountains and Piedmont. But these working-collar wheels seem crude compared to the beautifully engineered backshot Laxey Wheel on the Isle of Man.
