Welcome back to Our Top 5 Findings from last week. We have switched now the day to Mondays and share some insights into a few internet readings we pick every two weeks. We often get asked where we find our inspiration, and what are our sources. Not everything belongs to the field of interiors in our day to day, as you will discover below, though we always include one interiors project.
Here go our last discoveries:

3// ALGORITHM FOR OPTIMAL CAFFEINE CONSUMPTION
For several reasons, our society sleeps too little; one of the concurrent causes is the excessive consumption of coffee. A study carried out by DoD Biotechnology High-Performance Computing Software Applications Institute and the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center at the U.S. Army Medical Research in Maryland, developed an algorithm that can determine the ideal amount of coffee you can drink to stay alert without impacting your sleep condition. Say goodbye to sleepless nights caused by that extra cup of deliscious coffee. More info here!
4//FUTURE LIVING SCENARIOS AND CLIMATE CHANGE
Last week Venice experienced the highest tide in 50 years. The water reached 1.87 meters, covering Piazza San Marco and submerging a crypt under the Cathedral. As sea levels rise, living by the coast will become increasingly challenging. Ocean Community, designed by Wojciech Morsztyn (Poland), is an alternative housing solution on the water that allows humans to live at sea in communities. This floating dwelling is thought to become a natural extension of the coastline. This futuristic way of living is entirely autonomous and eco-friendly. Ocean Community just won Reddot award 2019, find out more here.
