A Helical Staircase Is the Centerpiece of This Los Angeles Mansion

Reliving your childhood dreams of a treehouse getaway, this three-story Los Angeles home celebrates the complex ridgeline landscape it rests upon, blending beautifully into the trees that surround it. Built by Belzberg Architects, the centerpiece of this home is its sculptural-like helical staircase that greets you upon entering the secluded residence. As Archdaily describes it, "on the ground floor, it acts as a threshold into the open plan; on the floor above, it separates the master suite and children’s quarter, while providing a light well to the basement." Additional design elements include floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, canted limestone louvers, a dynamically-angular exterior, and more.

adidas Gives the Ultra Boost a New Blue Colorway

adidas is revisiting its navy Ultra Boost this summer, putting a spin on last year's version for a brand new 2016 release. This time around the kicks get the gradient treatment -- a look that we've seen applied to a number of other make-ups over the past few months -- and echo the women's "Deep Blue Sea" colorway that appeared back in May. Unlike that women's pair, however, these stick to darker blue hues throughout and see silver and gold Ultra Boost branding along the external heel counter.

Though sizes may be mostly sold out at Sneaker Politics, the latest colorway of the fan-favorite runner should be landing soon at additional adidas stockists worldwide.

Artist Kurt Perschke’s Giant ‘RedBall Project’ Hits the Streets of Antwerp

American artist Kurt Perschke is well-versed when it comes to creating sculptures, videos and collages. However, Perschke is popularly known for his RedBall Project — an ongoing work that involves tucking a giant red orb into random places in a particular city. This time, the artist installed the 250-pound and 15-foot-high inflated piece into some of the more famous landmarks across Antwerp, Belgium. "Through the magnetic, playful, and charismatic nature of the redball, the work is able to access the imagination embedded in all of us," Perschke told designboom. "On the surface, the experience seems to be about the ball itself as an object, but the true power of the project is what it can create for those who experience it. it opens a doorway to imagine what if?"

The RedBall Project has been to over 25 cities across the globe. The installation will be in the Belgian city from August 19-28.

Bill Nye Is Coming to Netflix to Save the World

The world needs saving and Bill Nye is just the man for the job.

Fresh off its announcement that Stranger Things is coming back for a second season, Netflix has let another cat out of the bag: it's teamed up with Bill Nye for an upcoming talk show. Dubbed Bill Nye Saves The World, the upcoming series will see the iconic Science Guy exploring science's impact on politics, pop culture and society as a whole and will feature a different topic for each episode as Nye looks to dispel myths and refute anti-scientific claims.

Saves The World will mark Nye's return to the small screen and the first time he's had his own show since Bill Nye The Science Guy concluded its five-season, 100-episode run in 1998. Said Nye of the upcoming show:

Since the start of the Science Guy show, I’ve been on a mission to change the world by getting people everywhere excited about the fundamental ideas in science. Today, I’m excited to be working with Netflix on a new show, where we’ll discuss the complex scientific issues facing us today, with episodes on vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change. With the right science and good writing, we’ll do our best to enlighten and entertain our audience. And, perhaps we’ll change the world a little.

Though an exact premiere date has yet to be announced, Bill Nye Saves The World is set to debut sometime in 2017.
