Another skateboard stairs concept reaches reality. Though featured on Recyclart, those are clearly all new skateboards, and kind of crappy modern Kryptonics if I’m not mistaken. The metal supports are a custom fabrication.
See skateboard stairs: Part 1 – Part 2
Addendum: I was looking at the Kryptonics web site, and they have a little page bragging about being around the original Burnside skatepark! There are some weird illustration/caption combos in their timeline.
Felippe Lovecchio’s interior design. His web site is full of renders, none of it looks like actual photographs, but hey, I’d like to see this built. It’s a nice break from concept renderings of electric skateboards. Photo from Facebook.

A visitor from another planet landed on earth, approached the ragged leadership of what remained of mankind and asked, “I see you living among the wreckage and waste of a great civilization. Tell us what happened, so we may avoid the same fate.” To which a tired looking twenty something replied, “Well, there was a great disaster. Nobody knew if it was natural or man made. We could have saved ourselves, but all the world’s intellectual and artistic property was posted on bullshit social media sites like Facebook, Tumblr and Pinterest. We couldn’t find the original sources of information to actually fix anything.”
I have kitchen backsplash that I plan on installing soon. I don’t think I’m going to go this route, no matter how cool these Sk8 Tiles from Art of Board look. The more I look at it the more I might change my mind. Has anyone checked the futures market for used skateboard decks lately?

Somebody’s house in the Netherlands has skateboards for stairs, as seen on Architectenweb.nl. Nice to look at, probably annoying to walk on. Again, I applaud the gumption of anyone who executes and idea so well, but then sometimes it just isn’t worth it.

Bathroom vanity fixture made from a skateboard and what I assume has to be off-the-shelf electrical parts. This would be OK for a skatepark, skateshop, or kid’s bathroom I suppose, but it definitely falls under the category of something I might think was cool as an adolescent but wouldn’t want to have around me on a daily basis. I mean, I love skateboarding, but I don’t need to look at them while I’m evacuating waste from my body. Unless it’s a skate zine to pass the time while I’m otherwise engaged. $245 from ZAL Creations.
