Not new to each other, Nike has teamed up with Japanese sneaker store mita sneakers on the Nike Air Max Premium QS. The collaborative sneaker features a nice light grey premium suede upper and contrasting infrared lining, which matches the outer sole. A darker grey sits in nice contrast to the rest of the upper, which also features an interesting embossed pattern on the side-panels. The light grey/soft pink Nike Air Max Light Premium QS has released this weekend at mita sneakers.

Originally designed in 1991 as an urban housing prototype for a competition by architect Yung Ho Chang of Atelier FCJZ, the Vertical Glass House was eventually realised 22 years later and built in Shanghai. Taking inspiration from typical glass houses of the modernist period, the house resembles a 90-degree rotation of these forms, instead focusing on spirituality through the sky and the ground. The studio explains:
With enclosed walls and transparent floors as well as roof, the house opens to the sky and the earth, positions the inhabitant right in the middle, and creates a place for meditation.
Built vertically in layers, the overall footprint of the house is just 40 square meters. The internal structure consists of an internal skeleton made from a single steel column vertically running through the centre of the house, as well as criss-crossing joists that dissect each floor into quarters. One quarter of each floor houses a steel spiral staircase that leads from the basement to the double-height second level, while the rest of the floor is made up of glass panels. The internal concrete walls are cast against a sanded wooden facade, with narrow horizontal slits in the walls allowing extra light to enter, as well as lighting fixtures which create stripes of light at night.

presented in various color combination and material hues — and with a maximum attention to detail — the combined wood and steel structure perfectly harmonizes with a chosen color palate for a clean, soft and light appearance.
