Messograf

Whoa, check out the new Theo site, the little brother/alter ego of Thorsten van Elten. It’s chock full of interesting objects for sale and the website is a sight for sore eyes, let me tell you. In a world of online shops with blaring graphics and flashing lights, it’s refreshing to see the fuss eliminated. This Messograf Pen caught my eye; it’s a caliper rule, tire tread gauge, ruler and pen all in one.

Geometry Post Its

Yeah I know, a rectangular stickie note makes the most sense in the squared-off world we live in. But whatever, these cool geometric shaped ones are just fun.
