Eyeglasses by Sara Eliris for Mikli

Mikli is a glasses company that is not afraid to let their designers experiment. I have chosen to show probably the most conservative piece in their stable of designs. This pair I’m showing above is unique in that it’s clear plastic, but the shape is still defined by the black inlay. I could not find […]

Lamp by Konkret Form: Minimalism, Sandinavian Style

Konkret Form is a minimalist design duo from Stockholm Sweden. They are a fairly young but well accomplished crew.

Samsonite Black Label Vintage Collection

I sometimes cover luggage. I’m just attracted to the architectural quality I guess. Ever since I covered a $20,000 suitcase designed by Frog Design as one of my very first posts, I’ve been on the hunt for the next ultimate case. This is not it. However, for $600 it is a darn good alternative. The […]

The floating frame BA4 by Alias

I was in an airport a few weeks ago, and I sat in one of these floating frame BA4s by Alias, and damn, was it comfortable! The design is simple and beautiful, but maybe not crack-like. I’m not addicted to this item like I am so many others, but when you can fall asleep for […]

Carrie on Bike by Design House Stockholm

Design House Stockholm is a company that finds and creates great Scandinavian design, and they’ve been doing so since 1992. They probably have dozens of designed products that I could easily show on this site, but I’d like to start with a bike basket called Carrie. This piece gets to me because, as a daily […]

Cortiça Chaise Lounge by Daniel Michalik

Daniel Michalik is a Brooklyn based designer who explores the boundaries of unconventional materials. His focus is cork, though. Cork, as you probably know, is the bark that comes from a particular type of oak tree. The bark replaces itself every year and therefore can be sustainably harvested for use as stoppers in wine bottles, […]

These are simple rules to follow, but the execution take […]

The Too High Tea House by Terunobu Fujimori

All kidding aside, Mr. Fujimori is an architect who has looked into the depths of what people might call outdsider architecture, […]
