NYC by Night, On a Scarf

Last year, I posted a stunning photo of NYC by night:

NYC by night

It was taken by NASA in March 2013. The picture astounded me. I was amazed at how clearly you can see the gridded streets that make up the city, along with the bridges that connect the boroughs.

Today I stumbled upon an NYC-based design company who was just as inspired by that image: Slow Factory creates silk scarves from NASA’s aerial city photos—including the one above:

They also have scarves printed with images of Paris, the USA and London (below) by night.

Just stunning.
