Timeless Bracelet by Ina Seifart

Make an anti-watch statement with this very witty bracelet.

Wish Paper

Kind of clever, and doesn’t require carving a chicken.

“The quantum unpredictability of tearing paper lets you make wishes by completely natural chance. This paper pad has 100 sheets of invisibly fibrous paper with an exact starting point for tearing. In the end, the bigger piece of paper gives a perfectly impartial decision. They can be used for all kinds of decision-making, more specifically in deciding whose wish gets granted. They can all be used by one or two persons. Of course, they can also be used for writing notes to yourself or others.”

The Story Behind the Bookmark by Tokuda + Komiya

Sure, you could use any scrap of paper for a bookmark, but these are much more interesting and humorous. This could also be a thoughtful little gift for a book lover.

“A bookmark and its story, which are reminiscent of foreign picture books of the past-scary and unreal, yet fascinating all at the same time. The action of the bookmark being sandwiched between the pages of a book tells a story in itself. It is a bookmark that is caught between the real world and a fictional world. A lonely mermaid. A silly goose. A word thief.”
