Living with Neil the Lion

This is what happens when a lion becomes part of the household. These pictures show Tippi Hedren — star of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds — with her husband, Noel Marshall, and her daughter, actress Melanie Griffith, and their lion, Neil. Melanie is Tippi’s daughter from her first marriage to Peter Griffith. At the time these pictures were taken, Melanie was 19.  Via

Verner Panton, Swimming Pool (1969)  link
Located in the old town of Hamburg, the Spiegel Publishing House is one of Verner Panton’s most unique interior creations and one of the few that continue to exist today. All the designs were his own; the colour scheme, lamps, textiles, wall claddings - only the furniture had to be imported from Knoll International. The specially designed mirror lighting used on walls and ceilings was of major importance. Unfortunately the swimming pool above was completely destroyed in a fire and redesigned in the 1990’s. Der Spiegel’s most recent headquarters refashion Panton’s early design with a nine-metre high wall facing the city housing 115 square Panton lamps along with original tables, fabrics and colour schemes.
