Little Otsu Weekly Planner

This little planner features both a weekly and monthly format (hard to find sometimes) and is printed in Oakland, CA on 100% post-consumer recycled paper with soy-based inks. Take note that it’s dateless, so you can start it at any time, and there’s plenty of space for jotting down your daily or weekly to-do list.

Licht Lights

Back in November, Supermarket asked us to pick a few things (see Guest curator: Better Living Through Design) and these lamps from Soo Kwon not only made the list but are still stuck in my head. With such a high-design look, it’s amazing that they have such an affordable price tag.

Trappestigen Stepladder

Check out this stepladder with an integrated sidepiece that works as a railing. If you’ve ever lost your balance, or almost lost it, while on a step stool, chances are you’ll appreciate the extra security this one has… question is, can you afford to spend around $790 for the sake of safety?

When the Stepladder is not in use it can be hung on the attached wall fitting.
Available in oak, white, black and orange.

Bias Clock

The angled surface of this clock allows you to choose its bias. Maybe put it up high facing down towards your desk, or off to the side… either way, I like the idea of less craning-the-neck to check the time.

Plattfuss Rubber Bands

Rubber bands made of recycled bicycle tubes. Making flats useful = nice. Also, another item making flats useful is the smart IT Clip that Simon posted a while back. It allows you to make your old inner tubes into tie down straps.

A bag of 70 in assorted sizes.
Made in Switzerland by «tät-tat».

CLUSTER coasters Geometric Series

Coasters might not be forefront in your design wants and needs, but these by simbiotekdesignlab on Etsy are worth bookmarking. Inspired by “triangulated arrangements” in geometric patterns, the coasters can be clustered together to make shapes (sort of like tangrams, maybe) or broken apart for smaller combinations.

Lift Lamp

This is a custom ordered item from Science&Sons, who are well known for their Phonfone, just to get that out of the way first. Now, besides it being actually an interesting shape for a light, the idea behind the LIFT LAMP was to create an object that was fun to clean, so, to dust this lamp you’d fly it like a kite. Delightful idea, isn’t it? The light collapses down fairly quickly for easy transport.

Materials: Sailcloth, Graphite tubing, metal fittings
Size: 48″ DIA. x 22″ H.

Stick2Me

This is the sort of thing you’d see in a public setting perhaps, but I think it could work in a home environment just as well*. Whichever you prefer, this set is available in both broadsheet-format and magazine/tabloid size and has room for eight or four newspaper sticks.

-Available in oak and birch
-Treated with cold-pressed linseed-oil

*Guess it depends on your taste, but I like seeing some public purposed items appropriated.

Big Top Tablecloth

Normally soft, subdued colors draw my eye, and I would guess most of us play it pretty safe when it comes to color in our homes. Maybe it’s the perpetual grey weather of January that has me itching for crazy-in-your-face color… you know, the kind that makes your eyes water and brings delight and sometimes even a ‘for goodness sakes!’ response. Now, this tablecloth might not tick all those boxes, but it is ‘fun’, with its big top imagery, even if it is a little bit juvenile. It’s appealing with its bright red and white and tassels (tassels, for goodness sakes!). Just the thing for this time of year.

Handmade of cotton in India.

Face Object Frames

Face Object Frames are geometric, sculptural frames that beg to be handled and shared, rather than statically sitting on a mantle or hanging on a wall. Each frame provides space to combine your photograph with memorabilia, adding another dimension to the photograph’s story.

Bright Side Lights

New York-based Rich Brilliant Willing has teamed up with Artecnica to bring us these recyclable cast glass pendants. Hang one as a pendant lamp or group several together to make more of an impact… or if you should so choose, lay one on its side as a table lamp.

Hive Honey Set

I’m a big fan of honey. A little bit in chai tea, on bread, with plain yogurt, etc… I go through a small jar so fast it’s silly. Now, I’m thinking this set from BioDidactic Designs might just outperform the plastic squeeze bottle that’s near its end, plus it’ll look a lot nicer on the counter or tabletop.

Cardboard Chess by Londji

You might remember a cardboard chess set featured here before (see NewWave Chessboard), but I’ll take a chance in saying this one is a bit more refined with the black and white color scheme. However, it’s worth pointing out that the other might be handier for travel purposes as you don’t need to assemble the pieces each time.

Vertigo Bedding

I’m sort of loving the black and white stripes of the new-ish Vertigo Bedding. There’s something so simple about building on a base of black and white… with this duvet, you just need to add an extra pillow in a nice accent color, maybe a throw at the end of the bed for softness/texture, and ta-da, your bedroom is finished off. Also, the same stripes are available in a wallpaper (Vertigo Wallpaper), which I plan to post soon.
