Nusskubus Modern Nutcracker

Remember this? Also called the Cubist Nutcracker by some, this nutcracker by Adam and Harborth does the job in a straightforward way. Place a nut in an appropriately sized indention in the larger cube, take the other smooth cube and place it on top of the nut and then give it a good whack. Voilá, the nut is cracked.

The Phytophiler No.2 (Mirrors) by Dossofiorito

Is it a science experiment? Is it a plant pot? Is it art? Hmm, can it be all three? Functional appendages like magnifying glasses and mirrors encourage you to interact with a plant on more intimate terms. Have you properly studied the underside of a leaf, or the color of a newly formed bud? The Phytophiler series by Dossofiorito is composed of hand-thrown terracotta pots and the aforementioned appendages, and, after you add in the plant, you’ll be ready to “reflect on the larger emotional connections that link us to the natural world.”

Lino Paper Knife

This paper knife is so sleek it’s scary. A solid black matte finish and a super sharp point make it look like it’s a futuristic weapon, and you’re welcome to pretend it’s such as long as you don’t engage in any role play- someone is bound to get hurt. Keep it on your desk, admire it for its sculptural shape, and use it safely, as intended, as a paper knife.

Sensation Blanket by Zuzunaga

Think of this as a color field art piece that will keep you (or your giftee) warm. The handwoven mix of 100% ecological French merino wool shows color combination at a basic level: off-white, Yellow, Red, Green and Gray are woven to create a one larger rectangle of an earthy sort of yellow ochre. This one, the Sensation blanket, is my favorite, but there are others as well: Intuition, Feeling, and Thinking. Or, for a more pixelated mix, check out the Labyrinth. All by Zuzunaga.
