Cool Feet

These sound like a very smart buy for all of you laptop owners. And quite affordable, might I add…

“Cool feet are 4 small ‘feet’ with suction cups at the end. Or actually, they are suction cups in the size of small ‘feet’ that attach to the bottom of your laptop, allowing the heat to be dispersed properly. Why is that smart you might ask? Well for starters angled keyboards are more ergonomic than a flat one and a raised laptop protects your furniture from any heat damage… But the kicker is that when laptops release their excess heat, they become faster! And isn’t speed something we all want in our machines?”

Spoon Chair by Antonio Citterio for Kartell

If you’ve long been waiting for the perfect office chair, and get depressed anytime you visit your local office supply chain store, then this might be just the thing to cheer you up. There’s a handful of color options too if you prefer a bit more pizazz in your workspace.

“spoon chair is a semi-articulating office chair which directly evokes the spoon stool.
for spoon chair too, the handle that regulates the mechanism is perfectly concealed inside the trunk. the chair height is adjustable from a minimum of 18 inches to a maximum of 21.5 inches.”

Sapporo Shelving, One High

It’s so nice to know there is modular furniture out there that can grow and change according to your needs. This system can be changed depending on how high or tall or wide you’d like it, simply by adding or taking away an individual unit. The photo shown here is one unit with a steel base (the doors are sold separately), but you could afford to buy this now as a tv stand (for example) and then add on later to make a bookcase. The back is completely finished as well, so you could also use it as a room divider if you went with buying a taller unit.

“The Sapporo Shelving System by Jesús Gasca combines the elegant minimalism of Japanese design with Spain’s technically refined modernism to produce a system of case goods that meets a multiplicity of needs in a gracious and flexible format…”

XYZ Candle Holder

This cool candle holder has multiple arrangement options (stacked or individual) and reminds me of those cool old drawings of ‘architecture of the future’.

“..Elegant dark Wenge wood and cool and sleek aluminum make for a classy and elegant presentation of this new candle holder and the fact that it extends into all three axis leaves you lots of room for experimentation… Get a couple of them and start arranging them in different ways: arrange them back to back, or cascading in size, or turn them into a modernistic setting by stacking them…”

Look at this! I love it when someone rethinks a commonplace item and turns it into something worth a conversation.
