Bond Magazine

While perusing my favorite news stand I noticed a publication I hadn’t seen before called “Bond”, which labels itself as an alternative wedding magazine. What I really like about it is that it focuses on high-design concepts without all the frilly pomp and circumstance that are usually associated with wedding ceremonies. It’s also refreshing that it’s inclusive of both heterosexual and same-sex unions as well as multi-ethnic couples.

Acacia Wood Bath Accessories

I especially like the tray. It’s a good way of making all your bath accessories look organized.

“Cross at the corner. The warm grain of natural acacia wood for the bath, handcrafted with jigsaw puzzle details. Like interlocking corner joinery secured with wood pegs and floating slat tray bottoms. Fine 8″ sawtooth dovetail joinery randomly occurs on side panels to unite light and dark walnut tones. This level of craftsmanship could easily be triple the price. Big plus: eco-friendly acacia hardwood is H20-resistant.”

Most notably though, is the fact that it’s made sustainably:

Given the 2003 Red Dot Design award, Jan Hoekstra’s Cookware Series is designed with some really cool features:

“Saucepan twists and locks in place so liquids can be safely poured from notches on either side. In addition to giving you the convenience of one-handed straining, the interior of this Saucepan has a convenient measuring gauge so you can see how much you’ve added or removed. The gauge is in metric, attesting to the collection’s European roots. For the cook with too little storage space (and who doesn’t?), Hoekstra’s Cookware is made to nest together for compact storage. Made with a heat-resistant coated exterior in a choice of three colors and stainless steel interior, this Saucepan is suitable for all types of heat sources, from gas to induction cook tops.”
