Earlier today my friend Kaitlen sent me a link to a dress that she was confident I would love…and she was right.
Erin who blogs about her sewing projects on A Dress a Day just put up this amazing and adorable gaming themed dress. How adorable is it? I love the 50s cut of the dress and the simple yet beautiful Tetris pattern. This is certainly not Erin’s first geeky chic masterpiece, many of you will remember her adorable Darth Vader Dress.

I think its apparent by now that we here at Domestic Geek LOVE Tetris. See Exhibits A, B, C and D. Well now we have another item to add to our growing list of awesomely geeky domestic products.
25 year old French artist Stephanie Choplin is an Industrial Design student working on her Master’s degree. Her work is clean and practical with a modern twist. Unfortunately it doesnt look like any of it is for sale as of yet, but hopefully Ms Choplin’s beautiful creations will be gracing store shelves sooner than later. Be sure to check out all of her work on her website.

For a while now Ive been wanting to make a Tetris scarf but have been too lazy to chart up a pattern and also have been stumped on how to make it look good from the front and back since Intarnsia knitting looks a mess from behind. Low and behold, someone on Craftster solved the problem with a simple solution….making it double sided.
I love that it just looks like a mosaic pattern at first glance but then you recognize the shapes and instantly know what the scarf is. Truly chic and geek ;)
The woman made the pattern and had her mom knit it up and unfortunately she doesnt seem to have posted the pattern, but another poster linked to a Tetris chart for making a baby blanket that you could easily adapt into a scarf. You can download that here.
Here you can see how wide the scarf is before its doubled over. A great way to make the scarf visually appealing from all sides!

Ive written about Tetris home geekery before (here and here) but I think Ive finally found the ultimate in Tetris domestic goodness. Behold….
Maybe this has been posted around the net before so pardon me if this is a late pass..but its new to me! Besides, something this awesome needs reposting. Inspired by the classic shapes of Tetris and the need for efficient clean space, designer June He created this geometric masterpiece. The kitchen is basically transformed into a jewelry box in which all the pieces pull out into place and hide away so it looks like a sleek tile wall when not in use.
The tiles could also be changed color wise to reflect whatever scheme you would like. I for one and such a fan of this because living in an urban area like San Francisco, space becomes a luxury…yet at the same time I am unwilling to give up a large kitchen in order to obtain more living room space. This design allows for both kitchen space and open room all with an effortlessly cool and minimalist appeal. Unfortunately this design is still in prototype, but when I hit the lottery and built my dream flat, you can bet my kitchen will look like this.

As much redecorating and modifying that I can do to my apartment, I now deeply regret that I cannot put in new bathroom and kitchen tiles.
Behold, Tetris Tiles!
I never really considered that ceramic tiling in a bathroom could be cool, I just always prefered simplistic and minimalistic plain colored tiles. No granny colors like dusty pink or powder blue…just plain black or white suited my taste. But after seeing these Im a changed gal, the tiles are the perfect mix of chic and subtle geekery. Someone call my landlord and talk him into letting me do this!!!
