Heart by Renate Hattinger Keramik

I just saw the
Think Tank designed by Renate Hattinger Keramik on
notcot.org, which led me to the Golden Heart pictured above. Absolutely one of the best things I’ve seen; my only wish is that it would a bit more affordable.

“Golden Heart is part of the series Human Interior. Human Interior are porcelain containers in form of the central human organs, heart and brain. The highly specialized organs heart and brain designed by nature are symbols for life, intelligence, love. The invisible inside becomes visible and gets a concrete emotional meaning by careful processing and refinement of the object’s surface. The objects are not only to be admired on pedestals and in showcases but to be used and filled.”

Electrostatic removable “the end” sticker for your television

Are you ever sick of your TV just sitting there when you’re not watching it? Do you want it to be more useful? Perhaps a design object? Well then, the people at Atypyk have the solution for you: an electrostatic removable sticker for your TV screen.

I assume this wouldn’t work with plasma screens, only with glass.

Felt Rocks by Molo

“in their raw form, a felt rock is technically a lump of felt formed when small bits of wool fluff gather while making polishing wheels for optical lenses, spun around in a drum with them.

with steam and pressure, each stray piece of wool begins to entangle itself with others roughly creating a completely unique rock-like shape without the help of any bonding agents.

each felt rock is then carefully selected by molo and then finished through their own process.

felt rocks are solid all the way through, made out of 100% pure wool felt, and carefully dyed. they come in hand selected sets of 5 ( 2 natural and 3 grey, or 2 moss green and 3 grey ) and are packaged in a natural grey wool felt bag.

each one is completely unique with a different shape and size, although most measure around 4 – 6 inches across.”

The think I would like to live in the mind of Maxim Velcovsky. I would run, chase and play with little porceline meerkats all day.

Tobias Wong gold spoon

I’m posting this more as a news piece. McDonald’s has issued a cease and desist to citizen citizen for the Ju$t Another Rich Kid and Tobias Wong gold reproduction of their coffee stir stick–which I believe was originally discontinued in the 80′s due to its prominent use for ingesting the decade’s ubiquitous party drug.

So if you want one, you better get it while the gettin’s good!

I can’t help liking this little bird. I don’t know how many of you like sparrows, but maybe you’d like them more if they were in porcelain on your bookshelf? You know, as a nick-nack type of thing, but better? I might have to get one just so he can be my ‘bltd’ mascot.
