The Naiades Collection features unique pieces of tables that aim to bring sensations to the individual space that inhabit it; through form, texture and reflections, rather than merely mimicking the natural forms. The everyday object becomes an individual piece of art to be looked at, to be touched, to be lived with. Inspired by the myth of Narcissus, it depicts the sensation of a morning in a forest, the encounter with a water lily floating on the water. The Naiades Collection questions and explores the concept of self image. The double reflection: the emblematic relationship of the parts to the whole, the flower to its leaf and the leaf to the water in an abstract manner. This ambiguous relationship of the metal leg and the solid plane of the table top, embraces the quality of the amphibious and lightness; whereas the reflections on the metal echo the play of light on the water, celebrating a world of imagination that evoke curiosity. Naiad coffee tables are the ultimate collectible pieces offering lightness and richness in material and form. Naiad coffee tables and side tables can be combined together in different configurations such as in groups of two and more, allowing personalized occasional table configurations and different rhythms can be achieved with a variety of depths, widths, heights and materials.

The Manual Training School, Comprising a Full Statement of Its Aims, Methods, and Results:With Figured Drawings of Shop Exercises in Woods and Metals (Classic Reprint) C. M. Woodward
This textbook aims to be a one stop shop for those interested in aerosols and their impact on the climate system. It starts with some fundamentals on atmospheric aerosols, atmospheric radiation and cloud physics, then goes into techniques used for in-situ and remote sensing measurements of aerosols, data assimilation, and discusses aerosol-radiation interactions, aerosol-cloud interactions and the multiple impacts of aerosols on the climate system. The book aims to engage those interested in aerosols and their impacts on the climate system: graduate and PhD students, but also post-doctorate fellows who are new to the field or would like to broaden their knowledge. The book includes exercises at the end of most chapters. Atmospheric aerosols are small (microscopic) particles in suspension in the atmosphere, which play multiple roles in the climate system. They interact with the energy budget through scattering and absorption of solar and terrestrial radiation. They also serve as cloud condensation and ice nuclei with impacts on the formation, evolution and properties of clouds. Finally aerosols also interact with some biogeochemical cycles. Anthropogenic emissions of aerosols are responsible for a cooling effect that has masked part of the warming due to the increased greenhouse effect since pre-industrial time. Natural aerosols also respond to climate changes as shown by observations of past climates and modelling of the future climate.
´The 500 Hidden Secrets of Antwerp´ reveals these good-to-know addresses and many ; many more. It is an affectionate guide to the city ; written by a British journalist who has lived in Belgium for more than 20 years. His aim is to reveal the 500 places and details that no one knows ; like Dirk Van Saene´s fashion shop in an atelier without a sign ; a secret street hidden behind an old gate ; the art cinema that seats just 50 people and organises soft porn movie nights ; or the ship that was rebuilt as a hotel.

The aim is not to cover the city form A to Z ; but to inspire. The book also contains a number of maps ; on which you can find all the numbered locations. This is a book for visitors who want to avoid the usual tourist spots and for residents who are keen to track down the city´s best-kept secrets.

Sex is the silent cornerstone of human civilization. It is what leads to all things - life, pleasure, even hate and rage. It is that one topic that, no matter how modern we have become, is still considered taboo, and yet at the same time it is also the one topic that we need to know most about. First used as a term in the late 1960s, BDSM has become prevalent in daily pop culture. Madonna´s ´´Express Yourself´´ video from 1989 depicts her in leather outfits, crawling on all fours toward a saucer of milk. Other snippets of that video include a leash and collar and riding crops. The punks of the late ´70s wore bondage belts to complement their spiked hair. Bettie Page shocked her 1950s audiences with her riding crop and rope restraints. And now the sexual concept of master and slave finds its way to movie theaters. It´s no wonder that curiosity about the lifestyle is present. It´s tantalizing, it´s bold, it´s passionate, but it´s also real. And with that reality comes the details that the movies leave out. It´s important to educate yourself on the lifestyle before engaging with the path and finding your first sexual partner. Or maybe you just want to know if spanking is for you. In club nights in Hollywood, where female dominatrixes stalk the barroom floors and chains can be heard rattling against the brick walls, or in shop displays in Berlin, where mannequins sport bit-gags and latex saddles, or in the Seattle punk scene, where girlfriends are sometimes carried around on leashes, BDSM is not just vibrant in the bedroom. The aim of this book is to help you take your first steps into BDSM. It will explore what BDSM is, the various roles attached to it, how to choose a partner, which role is best for you, how to practice BDSM safely, and how to avoid the common pitfalls for most people just getting into it. I hope this book helps to open your eyes to new possibilities and how you can enjoy the marvelously mischievous world of... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathryn LaPlante.
