Green Week: PET Light by Walking-Chair Design Studio

First, I should say that the PET Light by Walking Chair Design Studio is called the PET light because in Europe, I gather, people refer to the plastic bottles as PET bottles, and this is a light made for recycled plastic bottles. The PET bottles are nearly identical to the water bottles that we all […]

Muji Wall Mounted CD Player

Muji, as hopefully you already know, is the queen bee of super simple but cool Japanese product design. It’s an Ikea for Japan. I first became aware of their work from a friend of mine who was in Paris and stopped in to the Muji store there. He picked me up a white T-shirt that […]

Holy Shit: An iPod Fit for a Priest

Are you a hipster priest who wants to buy an iPod, but are feeling guilty about your earthly desires? Fret not. Your savior device has arrived in the form of a crucifix iPod.

Frankentable: A Multileg Cabinet by Jaime Hayon

A lot of my friends have told me that they have loved my blog, however I rarely get comments on the blog unless I write something that’s not flattering. Take the Celebrity Smell Off, for instance. I referred to Britney’s perfume as being perfect for teenage slut. That got some comments. I also wrote an […]

Pandora and Egg by HE and Marcel Wanders

There are a bunch of products I’ve featured by Marcel Wanders in the past. There’s the Microwave with the TV in the door. Then there was the City System Shelving for Mooi. All, beautiful stuff. But this is the first design that I could actually use in my home and could afford to buy. Well […]

The Carlos Night Light by Kathleen Walsh

There is not much to say about the Carlos Nightlight that probably already hasn’t been said. I’m imagining what designer Kathleen Walsh was thinking when she set forward on her journey to make a night light in the form of a Chihuahua with a cone around it’s head. My guess is it’s a tribute to […]

XV Shelving by SEED International

The Xv Shelving System by SEED International is ingenious modular furniture. The system requires no tools to assemble. There is only one slotted shelf module and three joint shapes which are “X”, “V”, and “T”. That’s it. And what can you make from just four parts? Just about any shape of size shelf that you […]

Presentation Table by Corneille Uedingslohmann Architekten

I don’t know how or why I came about this architect duo. Probably I was smoking a joint while surfing. I wonder because it’s not often that I would consider including a product on the site designed by someone with a name I can’t pronounce. “Corneille Uedingslohmann” doesn’t just fall off the tongue for me. […]

The Illusion Table by John Brauer

This is another piece from the &David Store that I thought was amazing and fun. This is called, aptly, The Illusion Table. This piece, of course, would be the perfect piece for Wonder Woman seeing as she has a fetish for all things invisible. I happen to like it, too. I keep thinking that I […]

The Record Bowl by TimeSurvivors

Yesterday, a guy from the Netherlands left a comment on my blog announcing that he had this vase that I had profiled a while back for sale on his site. The piece he pointed out to me was this fabulous Tulip vase by Lotte van Laatum which sells for about $140. So, I went to […]
