Rock Out: Introducing The Weill Collection

Remember when you were a kid and you’d zone out digging for magic minerals, rocks and stones Well, we do. Today the appreciation for fossils, crystals, geodes and even space rocks has been reaching fever pitch (possibly to balance our all-things-tech lifestyle?) and we found two guys melding these natural treasures with high design.

Mineral expert Marc Weill and interior designer Richard Baquero will work together to create a unique and very cool interior design project titled “The Weill Collection”.

The Weill Collection will make nature’s beautiful and rare minerals available to homeowners and corporate clients through furniture, accessories and fixtures. Each project will be a customized experience, allowing clients to express their individual style – which in turn will allow Baquero and Weill to create a resilient and unique design that will last for generations and even better – make your friends, family, and coworkers completely awe-struck.

The juxtaposition of a mineral specialist with and an interior design expert creates a fascinating world of possibilities. By playing with space and color, and light, their creations will bring out the true potential in any office or home.

Some of the exotic minerals turned into functional pieces expected are tables crafted from petrified wood with malachite trim, lighting fixtures carved from lustrous minerals, and even abstract fossils transformed into centerpieces for a ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ meets World of Interiors aesthetic.

Baquero has spent over 20 years in the design industry and his philosophy involves the use of refined materials and a sophisticated color palate. Weill, one of the world’s top mineral collectors has become the go-to expert. He has obtained fossils, meteorites and petrified woods from all over the world. Sounds like a match made in the Museum of Natural History.

The 10 best Amazon Prime original movies to stream today
These incredible Amazon Prime original movies are worth a watch (or two)
best amazon prime original movies report

If you know anything about Amazon (and let's be honest, who doesn't), you probably know it as one of the biggest retailers in the world. As that retail business continues to grow, though, Amazon has also gotten into the streaming game in a major way. There are lots of movies on Amazon Prime movies as well as plenty of shows, but this list is focusing on the streaming films that have been produced by Amazon as a studio. Amazon clearly wants to be a dominant player in Hollywood, in addition to the dominance it already has in the world of retail, and based on this list, it's well on its way.

Because Amazon is such a new studio, all of the movies on this list are quite recent. Hopefully, that means that they feel vibrant and relevant, and will continue to hold up for years to come.

Easy, Intuitive Cleaning with DEEBOT T10 OMNI: Hey YIKO, Vacuum and Mop My Home
ECOVACS DEEBOT T10 OMNI cleaning floors

This content was produced in partnership with ECOVACS.
Picture this, you've just sat down after a hard day's work, barely have a moment of respite, and your phone rings. It's your mother-in-law and she's going to pay an impromptu visit. Before even hanging up you're wracked by a state of panic. The house is a mess. There's clutter everywhere. It will take forever to organize, vacuum, mop, clean, and get everything else done before she arrives. It's not a fun situation but let's rewind here. If you had ECOVACS' newest state-of-the-art smart vacuum and all-in-one cleaning system, the DEEBOT T10 OMNI, the situation would be barely an inconvenience.

The DEEBOT T10 OMNI has an all-in-one station that handles just about everything you'd need it to, like auto-emptying the dustbin, auto-cleaning the mop attachments, and auto-hot-air-drying the mop. It's the most advanced docking station on the market, but AI is baked into this system at nearly every touchpoint. Intuitive AI voice controls allow you to issue voice commands without moving a muscle. It could be as easy as calling out, "Okay YIKO, start cleaning here!" It knows exactly where "here" is thanks to a built-in voice locator. AI is also leveraged to prevent the spread of granular particles while it's vacuuming, so it won't make a bigger mess. Coupled with sophisticated mapping and object detection, plus a large battery, this thing will just keep going as long as it needs to. If all of that sounds like something you might need, keep reading.
