Tiny house lovers, meet Tikku. A super sleek, multi level tiny apartment that currently lives in a bustling Helsinki square, where it only takes up a footprint of 2.5 x 5 meters (roughly 8′ x 16.5′) — the size of a parking spot. The house, designed and installed by Marco Casagrande, is described as “a contemporary cave for a modern urban nomad.” Tikku, which means “stick” in Finish, seeks to bring a sense of the organic to city life.

How the furniture was arranged for entertaining, for conversation, for “company.” It was once common for friends to drop by, even unannounced, and for you to spread some refreshments around while you sat on couches, facing each other, to shoot the breeze. Nowadays that sounds insane. Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco perfectly and hilariously illustrates the difference between someone dropping by 20 years ago versus now.

The house is designed to be mobile, to set down wherever one might place a car. It has three floors: one for sleeping, one for working and a green-house that are designed to be endlessly adaptable to the owner’s needs. There’s a sand box in the base of the building for balance, so one can simply set the house down wherever there is space, no foundation required.

The room itself is filled with natural light (a real treat for the Swedes!) and very well organized. The bed stands on one side of the room and is stacked with pillows of various sizes. There is even a dining area in this small apartment which consists of a retractable table and three chairs.

Flower pots enliven the atmosphere and add to the charming personality of this place. The integrated kitchen units in black provide an interesting contrast with the white walls. We believe this one-room apartment in Sweden restores hope on decorating small spaces; with little effort, you can truly do magic. 

A heat sink is a mechanical component that is attached to an electrical component for the sake of transferring heat from the electrical component into the surrounding environment. This environment is most commonly air, but it can also be other fluids, such as water or coolant. Heat sinks are typically made of aluminum or copper and have fins or pins that work to increase the surface area of the component, to expedite the heat transfer to the surrounding fluid.

The image below demonstrates both a fin (right) and a pin (left) type of heat sink. As we can see, the heat sink has a much greater surface area than the flat component to which it would be attached. The metals of which heat sinks are made also have a much higher coefficient of thermal conductivity than the plastic packaging of typical electrical components. 

Although a meal satisfies your hunger you should have dessert, because the educated palate craves that particular spice as a proper finish. Scientists tell us that a dinner digests better because of a tasty dessert, which, they say, gives the final stimulus necessary to dispose of the food previously received.

We all know lighting is one of the most important elements in a living room, especially in terms of creating a mood. Switch out existing (and bland) pendants for more attractive (and not necessarily expensive) options, like the sputnik chandelier in the above photo from MyDomaine, or skip ceiling lighting altogether in favor of a combination of flattering floor lamps and wall sconces.

After the cream is frozen rather stiff, prepare a tub or bucket of coarsely chopped ice, with one-half less salt than you use for freezing. To each ten pounds of ice allow one quart of rock salt. Sprinkle a little rock salt in the bottom of your bucket or tub, then put over a layer of cracked ice, another layer of salt and cracked ice, and on this stand your mold, which is not filled, but is covered with a lid, and pack it all around, leaving the top, of course, to pack later on. Take your freezer near this tub.

Make sure that your packing tub or bucket has a hole below the top of the mold, so that the salt water will be drained off.
