Fridge Magnet

If you get frustrated by the minimal amount of paper/drawings/menus that your current fridge magnet holds, then this would completely solve your problem.

“This little chap is made from a super-strong magnet coated in non-scratch plastic to protect your fridge and your photos. But what really makes the Endo brilliant is that is in effect a magnetic hinge – to use, you just press the top and the magnet frees up whatever it is holding, release and it and it grips again…all without any springs or moving parts. Combining neodymium, silicone and steel, the Endo clip is great looking, holds up to 20 pages or 1 lb and can be thrown in the dishwasher for cleaning.”

Each magnet is 2″ x 1″, pack of 3.

Tea Towels, Third Drawer Down®: A Piece of Tea (2005)

A few people have emailed us about Third Drawer Down®, and pretty much the only reason there hasn’t been a post until now is because it’s difficult to choose just one to highlight. They have made common objects such as aprons, tea towels and kercheifs into usable art and I know there’s quite a few I would frame. Also, keep in mind these would be excellent gifts for anyone who has a kitchen (which is almost everyone).

“By placing art into the most domestic of circumstances, Third Drawer Down® products promote an ongoing dialogue between art and everyday life, whilst promoting the work of International Artists and Designers.”

Droplet (dropper)

Something like this makes me want to cook just so I could use it.

“This curious object is intended to be a soy sauce dropper, but would work well for other liquids in your gourmet pantry, like your fanciest olive oil. Fill with your liquid of choice, hold your finger over the hole in the dropper and lift – you control the drops with a little bit of physics. This elegant glassware will look beautiful on your dining table.”

Quite a clever design:

“The Ming Oil & Vinegar Set from Dutch design firm Jansen + Co. takes the classic form of the wine glass and turns it on its head, literally. We love it, and not just because it’s clever – the stem reduces the flow just the right amount, so it’s easy to measure as you pour.
