Spektral Mobile

As we anxiously await spring, let’s preemptively add color to the dreariest room in the house with a colorful Spektral Mobile. Yes, it is very colorful and would be quite the brave decision for those of us prone to choosing grays, blacks, and browns when it comes to furnishings and accessories, but it would be nice to see a little rainbow color moving around in the breeze, wouldn’t it?

Numerouno Pendant Lamp

This Numerouno Pendant Lamp made an appearance on some design sites a few weeks back, but, before we go any further, I should warn you that it’s not available for shipping to the US or Canada. However, it is available to buy within the EU, so you’re lucky if you reside in one of those countries or the surrounding area.

Now, onto the lamp: the simple materials (corrugated cardboard, wire plastic, nylon thread) make for a lightweight light source that has a low environmental impact. The length and overall minimal silhouette makes it a great choice for above a kitchen island, dining table, or desk, and all you’ll need to provide is the 21W tube, which will emit more light than two 75W light bulbs.

Lumo Projection Alarm Clock

No need to turn your head to see the time with this little Lumo Projection Alarm Clock. It features a rotating arm which projects the time on the wall or on the ceiling. A digital diplay on the front shows the time and the alarm time (when it’s set), so you can quickly do the math on how many hours of sleep you have ahead of you.

Peg Wall Coat Hook

There’s no excuse for disarray when you have an appropriate place for everything, so make sure everything has an appropriate place. Sounds easy enough, but then you actually have to move your limbs to buy, and then install, hooks for coats and accessories so they don’t end up on the chair, bed, or (gasp) floor. Jonah Takagi’s wooden Peg Wall Hook might make the whole experience easier, as you’ll have a nice array of colors to reward you each time you hang your hat, coat, or scarf in the right spot.

Workstead 3 Arm Chandelier

The Workstead 3 Arm Chandelier caught my eye again in a small yet lovely interior the other day (thanks Kris for the link), and was reminded of how the arms allow for such versatility in terms of dimensions. As a horizontal fixture, it hangs 36″ from the ceiling, however, if you choose to take advantage of the vertical length, you’ll have up to a 62″ drop. That is a dramatic difference, and allows for different moods depending on the height of the light bulbs. I’m planning on adding this chandelier to my ‘save-up-for-pronto’ list.

What Is It?

Let’s play the guessing game: what the heck is the item shown above? Despite looking like some sort of futuristic alien egg, it serves a useful purpose when it comes to oenology. If that word is unfamiliar to you, oenology is “the science and study of all aspects of wine and winemaking” (-wikipedia). Looky there, you just learned something, and now you probably have a good idea of the item’s purpose. Yes? No? If not, the pictures below will give it away.

Loop trivets

Is it a magnet? Nope, it’s a trivet, a solid aluminium (or aluminum, as us Americans say) trivet, to be exact. Heat proof paint in either yellow or matte black finishes off this simple device to protect your tabletop in the most minimal fashion. By Daniel Emma.

Chimney Humidifier

If the dry air is getting on your nerves, get yourself a humidifier. And, as we’re in the business of selecting well made items that have a pleasing appearance, you should probably take my advice and buy the Chimney Humidifier designed by Takeshi Ishiguro. The slim profile and tall chimney blend in with a room’s furnishings easier than other large humidifiers, and, using a silent, ultra-sonic system, the mist is emitted at a height that humidifies the whole room instead of one particular area. (Last fall I ended up buying one, and so far I’m pleased with its performance.)

Can you believe that the United States has still not fully embraced the metric system? Do your part by using rulers that have both customary and metric measurements, just like this Ruler Stick you see before you. It has inches on one side, which you know and love, and centimeters on the other. Brought to the Cooper-Hewitt Shop by KIOSK.

28d Table Light

A grey crochet cable coils up to create the base of this blown glass sphere light, allowing the light to comfortably sit on any horizontal surface. While there are many color choices available, you might opt for the clear glass sphere (shown above) if you’d rather keep a quiet color scheme. There’s a 28.1 Single Pendant Light and 28s Wall Light as well.

Hasami Porcelain Teapot

Not only does this Hasami Porcelain Teapot have a classically modern shape, it shares the same diameter as other pieces in the Hasami Porcelain collection, which allows for easy transport and stacking. That’s not only beneficial for your cabinet space, but it also makes for an efficient and aesthetically pleasing tablescape. Crafted from a custom blend of clay and porcelain, the surface is softer to the touch than traditional porcelain.

Heartwarmer Cushion

In a reluctant nod to the holiday that is Valentine’s Day, I present you with the Heartwarmer Cushion. It may be placed in the microwave or freezer to warm or cool whatever region that may need it. (Considering the very cold February we’ve been having, the warmth of a heart-shaped cushion on toes and fingers would be especially nice, wouldn’t it?)
