night stand by reform called bedtimestory

      Rephorm has some clever products, but my favorite product is the bedtimestory night stand. It’s a simple and elegant piece of laser cut steel with a white powder coat. It’s bent into a form that allows the user to hold a book, place one’s glasses, and hold a lamp. Basically, it holds […]

Stop the Presses! Maison Margiela launches an interior collection

I don’t know if I should be pissed off or in love after reading this post at Wallpaper*. Why should I care? For one, the fashions from Maison Margiela pushes the limits of what I should wear into a mysterious abstract art. Although I feel they rule the edge of excitement in fashion, why is […]

Fail Bench: Furniture to Make You Insecure

I saw this bench, and it immediately spawned a thought about dieting and weight loss. I’m getting fatter. I’m not feeling like a real chunky, but I’m slowly creeping up from a slender 190 lbs. (I’m 6′-4″ BTW) to something more than this, let’s say. I think the name is interesting because my first thought […]

Deer Socket: nature meets electronic devices

The Deer Socket is an innovation that I feel really pushes the boundaries of smart design. Why? First, the design says to me: “I’m unashamedly trendy”.

So often we designers design for how we lived our lives twenty years ago and not for how we live our lives now. The Bedford Smart Recharge Station recognizes your needs: pay bills, hold the […]

Fokus Fabrik: A Finnish Fantasy

I’ve been meaning to write about this small Finnish company for quite some time. You need a fabric for your design that incorporates a kind of 80s collage DIY aesthetic? This might very well be the designers to look at. Their fabric work suggests industrial wastelands, flowers juxtaposed with grainy penwork of enlarged Maurice Sendak […]
