Five things to do today: 9 February

SWORD’oeuvres - Baan’s Tenerife pics - google giggle - Soft saloon brawl - skankyness

The wonderfully-named SWORD’oeuvres are tiny swords for buffet spreading. Available in packs of four and a range of colours.

Baan’s Tenerife pics
Pictures of Tenerife Espacio de las Artes, Herzog & de Meuron’s latest Spanish project, by Iwan Baan.

Google giggle
At least google are giving us a few laughs as they shred what remains of our privacy: an amusing list of the top 10 images caught on Google Maps.

Soft saloon brawl
‘Hit it’ is a series of table and chairs built to resemble saloon furniture from western movies. The twist is that they bend and bounce - the makers claim that ‘saloon fighting will now not only be fun, but safe’.
