Bicicleta Rug by Nani Marquina

Nani Marquina, an awesome rug making company, has just developed the Bicicleta Rug. This rug is special because it brings two of my life’s interests together: bicycling and design. If you didn’t know already, I attempt to ride my bicycle to work each day, and I’ve been doing that for nearly ten years. In that […]

Alder by Brent Comber

I post all the pictures to Flickr that I put on the site . (let’s not get into the legalities, but I only post things I love and then promote the hell out of them, so I’ve had no complaints) I posted this one just yesterday, and it already got a comment suggesting that the […]

The RPM 10 Record Player by Pro-Ject Audio Systems

I’m not really going to talk about the RPM 10 Record Player by Pro-Ject Audio Systems. I’m going to talk about what these record players stand for. The funny thing about the modern audiophile record player is the record player inevitably likes to display every piece and part of the machine as if it were […]

Hotdoll by Clement Eloy

Clement Eloy is a French product designer with an idea to help out dogs when they get the urge. Mr. Eloy has produced a number of provocative product designs in the past couple years, but this one is the most visceral. The Hotdoll. There’s not much to say about the concept that isn’t already obvious. […]

The Diamond Zinc Vase By Tampopo for Eboniste

First, I’d like to say that we have awarded out first ever email newsletter contest prize which I will discuss in a couple of weeks in a more formal post. She was ecstatic to win, and I can’t thank her enough for signing up. She was also kind enough to tip me on one of […]

My Book Hard Drive by Western Digital

I was recently at Circuit City (which I normally hate going to, by the way. They have no selection.) and I was looking for a backup hard drive for my system. The one I found compelled to buy was the My Book Hard Drive by Western Digital. I honestly know nothing about the company, nor […]

The Orgasmatron 3000 by Dominic Wilcox

I have heard this urban legend all of my high school and college life that goes like this: having sex on a washing machine can cause women to go wild with passion because of the slow vibrating motion of the washer. The spin cycle is supposedly particularly hot. Finally, someone, this being master of everyday […]

Bracelet by Pinel and Pinel

Frederic Pinel has brought us many different fantastic products from his Paris design studio, the latest of which is the current special issue bracelet. His mode of operation, if I’m not mistaken, is to take to the streets to see what the youngsters are doing, and then re-interpret a piece for his collection. His recent […]

Margaret Howell Spring / Summer 2007

Margaret Howell provides the highest style in the vein of a genre where the only term that comes to mind is preppy. All of her Spring/Summer ’07 collection seems directly inspired by either a croquet game if all the players were characters from the O.C. (the O.C. is an American TV show full of young, […]

Meridienne by Sacha Lakic for Roche Bobois

I recently went into a Roche Bobois showroom in San Francisco, and I was impressed with this piece called the Meridienne. How do I put this without seeming crass… it’s a sex chair. Or, maybe I just had sex on my mind, because when I saw this chair I couldn’t help but think of all […]
