French designer Philippe Starck and car company Peugeot have unveiled a prototype bicycle crossed with a scooter, designed for a free cycle scheme in Bordeaux, France. As part of efforts to integrate bicycles into its public transport system, the city of Bordeaux asked locals to submit design suggestions for an urban bike. Philippe Starck took their ideas and worked with Peugeot to develop a scooter and bicycle hybrid called Pibal, which means “baby eel”. (via Pibal bicycle by Philippe Starck and Peugeot)

Custom bike building is a long game. It’s easy to make a short-term splash, but difficult to keep the momentum going over several years. In Europe, there are a handful of companies with the requisite grit and vision, and the Wrenchmonkees are one of them. This Triumph Thruxton is the 68th bike to roll out of their Copenhagen workshop.

It’s undeniably ridiculous but it’s hard not to be charmed by the Disk36 by E1+E4, a cabinet inspired by the classic game Connect Four. 

Designed by Luca Valota, it’s deliberately intended to imitate the game - first sold in 1974 - from its blue grid to the yellow and red tokens. However, this cabinet is made from lacquered polished MDF rather than plastic and stands at a slightly more imposing two metres. And within the grid you get nine different cupboards, meaning it’s vaguely practical too. 
But it doesn’t just look like Connect Four, you can actually play the game using the cabinet as each counter twists free and can be moved around, or taken out entirely as you can see on the image below. 

It’s priced at 7200 euros or just under £6000 pounds (shipping from Italy, however, is free worldwide) so it looks like it’ll be a while before these are as common as the game in people’s homes. Even more so, as it’s limited to an edition of 70.  (via Retro To Go: Connect Four cabinet: Disk36 by E1 E4)

Well out of our price range, but we still admire the look of this 1940s Richard Neutra-designed modernist property in Los Angeles, California. That price? $7,195,000, which would make it a tough call even with a Lotto win. (via  On the market: 1940s Richard Neutra-designed modernist property in Los Angeles, California, USA « WowHaus)
