We are already huge fans of the Lego Architecture Sets and their recreations of modernist icons in miniature bricks. But this 1950s modernist United Nations Building Lego Architecture Set could be the best yet.
We have featured Swatch on various occasions over the years, but I think this is perhaps the coolest design we've had so far – the Swatch x Oscar Niemeyer Tracos de Um Arquiteto watch.
'Tracos de Um Arquiteto' apparently translates to 'traces of an architect' and of course, the architect in question is Oscar Niemeyer. The watch was created for the 50th anniversary of Brazil's capital, Brasilia and is inspired by the architecture of its National Museum and the work of the architect himself.
So as well as offering up some retro cool, it just might get some knowing glances off fans of modernist design too. A limited edition, you can pick it up from Colette for 43 Euros.
Like your houses? Get some architectural inspiration from The Iconic House book. Subtitled 'Architectural Masterpieces since 1900', its 352 pages detail some of the most famous and influential architect designs houses around the world.
It makes the book an invaluable reference to twentieth century architecture featuring work by the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe and Eileen Gray and will help you tell your Le Corbusier from your Oscar Niemeyer. It also goes right up to the present day to help pinpoint future classics.
The book costs just £19.74 through Amazon
