Ototo Musical Invention Kit

Your excellent memory might recall us linking to the Ototo meets ECAL workshop, and, if your interest was piqued, you’ll be ecstatic to know the Ototo Musical Invention Kit is now available from the MoMA Store. Once it arrives on your doorstep, you’ll be able to make music from anything. Connect conductive objects to the keys and voilà! you’ll be an electronic sound maestro in no time- no coding or programming knowledge needed. Plants, forks, fruits, or whatever else you’ve got lying around becomes your orchestra. So fun I can hardly stand it.

Whiskey Wedge

If you like a little whiskey now and then, maybe you’d be interested in this efficient method of keeping it chilled with less dilution than normal ice cubes. The Whiskey Wedge has a silicone mold that diagonally bisects the glass, letting you freeze the glass with one half ice. It’ll keep your whiskey cold, and you’ll have less clinkety-clanking of cubes as you finish your drink. The presentation is pretty interesting too, if you’re into impressing your guests.

Saikai Toki Brass Objects

Let’s play a game. Which of these brass items is a trivet? A paper weight? What about a bottle opener? And the items below, which one is a candle stand? You might just want to add one of these Saikai Toki Objects to your desktop and/or favorite area of the home, as they’re small, useful and will add a semi-precious sheen to their surrounding space.

Ferm Living Circular Jute Rug

I don’t know where you’re going to put one of these circular jute rugs by Ferm Living, but you’d better figure it out, because for $62, they’re a steal of a deal. And don’t ask why, because the patterns- triangles! dots! sticks!- should pretty much convince you, if not the size (it’ll fit anywhere) and the fact that’s it’s made from 100% jute. I’d say it could work well in your entryway, laundry room, or any other high traffic space (a kid’s room, perhaps?).

NeoCover

If you’re always losing your keys, you might just need a NeoCover. It’s a standard light switch cover that has super-strong rare earth neodymium magnets inside, and that allows you to hang your keys, favorite pen, or even tools from it. Nickel-plated key rings come with it, and unless you have more than 27 keys, your collection will hang from the NeoCover with no problem. Installs on your existing light switch fixture- all you need is a screwdriver.

Logifaces

A game that looks like a tabletop sculpture? Sure, why not? Logifaces is a set of 16 prisms, hand-poured from concrete. Each piece has different angles on its top, and your challenge is to place the prisms next to each other to form a continuous surface. Choose between marble white, basalt grey, or charcoal black; $60 gets you the early bird 16-piece set. Adding this to your gifts-to-give list is a no-brainer.

Norm Steel Wall Clock

Before you turn your eyes away from this steel wall clock from Norm Architects for Menu, take a look at the bold blue color option. Even if you already have enough clocks in your home, it’s hard to resist a blue so bright. With simple hands and a traditional round face, it would fit in effortlessly into any room, even more so if you go with a quieter color. The four color options were chosen for their connection to the Scandinavian climate.

Typography Mugs

Excuse me while I geek out over this Bauhaus Typography mug- there’s also one for you Helvetica nerds, so keep your pants on. Even though some of us might already know the year of the design, the designer, and the type size, those details are printed upon the bone china mug so that everyone else may be educated as to two of the most popular typographies’ factoids. Would this make a great gift? Most certainly.

The Ravens

If only we had done a little research beforehand, a few of these iBride Ravens would be decorating our homes for this All Hallows’ Eve. Maybe you can get ahead of the game by buying one or two for next year, or maybe you’ll like to keep them out year round- they’ll be very quiet companions, I assure you. They arrive at your door needing a little assembly yet already named- the one with outspread wings goes by the name of Karl.

Hide and Park

Oh, looky what we have here: a coatrack with hidden hooks and a hidden ledge for storing away all sorts of miscellany. The best part is when you’re not using it, there’s no extraneous details to catch your eye- it’s sleek and shows off the material of the wood. Chances are you’ll utilize most, if not all, of the hooks underneath this season, but it’s nice to know when you’re not weighed down with scarves, mittens and hats, you’ll have a visually clean coatrack/shelf to catch and store other sundries as they crop up.

Bougies Russes Hurricane Lamp

Beatiful, aren’t they? Inspired by Russian Matryoshka dolls, these Bougies Russes Hurricane Lamps can be placed inside each other or lined up in a row. The lower portion of the glass is tinted to partially obscure the candle, thus giving off an “ethereal luminosity” fit for any occasion, inside or out. Designed by Stephan Lanez and manufactured by Paris based brand Marcel By.

Triangle Dinner Bell

There’s a certain nostalgia connected to a Triangle Dinner Bell like this one from Pat Kim- perhaps period films have us immediately imagining dinner time at an old farm? Whether your estate is vast or your apartment small, ringing a triangle will signify it’s time to sit down and eat, hopefully without our devices. The English Bridle Leather hanger conveniently holds the solid brass striker, making this hand bent steel triangle appropriate for display as well as use.

Variopinte Plates

How about some colorful dinnerware for this season’s festivities? Variopinte* enamel plates were created as part of the A TAVOLA! project, where Stefania Di Petrillo created a dining room that’s easily transported via a clever packing plan/container. The plates are available in three sizes and can be stacked or used separately. Best of all, the enamel is durable enough to use outdoors should you fancy a picnic.
