Surikata by Maxim Velcovsky

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.

PS. Have you seen what he did here with Jakub Berdych for Qubus?

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!

“INDULGENCES directly comments on the creation and expansion of luxury products in today’s consumer culture, this often results in the production of many unnecessary items. this series attempts of elevate everyday and in some cases disposable items into desirable object.”

Domestic Wall Vinyls- Horse & Cat

Just when you thought the wall vinyl category couldn’t get any fatter, here comes along a couple of playful characters…(I think you could get away with tucking the cat into a corner somewhere, but you’d sure have to be committed to buy the whole horse).

“The objective of Domestic is to create collections of articles devised by designers, graphic artists or artists whose common denominator is to offer a means for the end user to freely participate. With Vynil, an alternative to wallpaper, the principle of the collection is simple: literally hand over to users who are invited to transform their interior into an area for expression and design their own decor. Thanks to Vynil, the wall space becomes the playing field for composition and into which one can put a lot of effort and invention. Beyond the practical interest it represents (no longer any need for glue or a pasting table); the Vynil collection enables new thought to be given to the place and role of the ornamental pattern in our interiors.”

In light of things funny/fantastical…(and, think outside the box, why not add some whimsy to areas other than those delegated to kids?)

Fuyuh Bamboo Laminated Ceiling Mobile

When decorating a room, there are so many opportunites to hang something from the ceiling, which helps bring height to a space. I always love finding great candle globes that hang, or beautiful lamp pendants. Sometimes, though, you need something that is just decoration, something so beautiful it doesn’t need an alternative use; simply something that looks good and will fill a void. Artist’s mobiles are usually the answer, and boy am I fawning over this one.

“Fuyuh was designed by Riki Watanabe in 1975. It is a classic Japanese design crafted by hand in a small Japanese workshop. The quality and details of the laminated bamboo are unsurpassed. Fuyuh is a small work of art, suspended in space.”

Better Wall works with over 20 major art museums and sells them as large scale wall art (with portions of the proceeds going back to the museums). Any damaged banners are recycyled as raw materials and keep vinyl out of landfills, and you can feel good about that.

The stock is always changing (obviously) and is definitely limited edition.
