Take Away Bird Feeder by Eva Solo

If you like our feathered friends, you might also like this lovely glass bird feeder. Very simple and elegant (as far as birdfeeders go), this looks like it would blend in nicely with any outdoor environment.

“This bird feeder is made from mouth-blown glass and designed to withstand wind, weather and beating wings. The ball can easily be suspended from bushes, trees and the eaves of your house – and filling it with seed and other natural products is extremely straightforward.”

* IF Design Award 2007

Phone/PDA Charging Station

A charging station that actually looks good? For real, it’s true. Stations that house and charge our electronic appendages cut down on many unsightly cords that get tangled easily, and makes it ever so much easier to find the phone, camera, ipod, etc. So, hurray for one that does no harm to your aesthetic environment.

“You can corral up to three items and neatly tuck a 10” power strip out of sight behind the sliding door. No room on your desktop for the 13″ long Charging Station? You can also mount it to the wall as easily as a clock with two dry wall screws (included).”

Available in black or navy.

13”L x 3.75”W x 5”H

Gun Earrings

I know, I know, guns aren’t considered the most neutral of topics, but I do like them in earring form.

“These earrings are toy versions of the AK47, a rather famous automatic rifle. Swords to ploughshares? Ironic comment on gun culture? Self defence for earlobes? You decide….”

B-set dinner service by Hella Jongerius

“Hella Jongerius turns imperfections into ideals with the B-set dinner service. Each piece is fired in an overheated kiln to slightly warp the porcelain into uniquely distorted shapes. The result is a curiously charming dinner-set, unified by its consistent inconsistencies.
The porcelain and glaze recipes used are stamped on the side of each item as a tribute to the ceramics recipe culture.”

Jorine Oosterhoff Mad Hatter Bowls

While you might not have the disposable income to afford these pieces, you might know someone that does, and that someone might be less grumpy during teatime if they owned one or two of these to hold their snacks.

“With experimental forms and avant-garde design, these progressive and playful pieces are sure to inspire an afternoon of tea and delectable goodies. As the designer herself describes, ‘My products become characters, like individual things that seem to live their own life. They have their own identity and personality. Sometimes they seem to come from a fairytale-world. Products making us feel like being in a different world.’”

Unglazed porcelain on the outside, glazed inside.
