ACCESSORIES

Ada Sconce

The Ada Sconce is a versatile little light, for its shade is made of two adjustable reflectors on friction hinges. This means you can move the shades around in many different ways to direct the light exactly where you wish. Fans of Charlotte Perriand might recognize a little of her CP-1 Sconce in this design, as this light was inspired by that exact design. And, another nice tidbit: the Ada sconce is named for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which dictates that sconces in hallways must not protrude from the wall more than 4”.

Cymbal Pendant

Well, what do we have here? It’s a very simple pendant that uses the light bulb as support for the shades. Aluminum disks diffract the light and trick your eye with reflections of its environment. Does it remind you a little of the Grain Pendant by Brendan Ravenhill? It’s the same sort of idea, and a little more affordable at that.

Deuce Pitcher/Watering Can

Another weird watering can? Of course! And, even better, this one could also be a carafe, if you should so desire, as one spout is for plants and the other for pouring drinks. Use the long spout as a handle when filling your glass, or, alternatively, grasp the 1 1/4 liter body to water plants. This double function will let you donate any other watering cans and carafes that are cluttering up your cabinets while also delighting in your ability to find such well-designed containers. Go ahead, pat yourself on the back.

Classic Glass Cup

Surely you’ve been served a cup of tea or coffee (or dessert) in one of Silodesign’s Glass Cups? Well, you can replicate the finery that’s associated with that heat resistant, double-walled glass vessel, right at home. There’s various sizes for all sorts of drinks and desserts, and, in addition to the Classic Glass Cup, there’s also the Original Glass Cup with no handle.

Rosa Rocker

Okay, child development specialists, is it better for a kid to have a rocking horse that looks like a horse, or a minimalist version with just a handle for a head? (Technically, it’s a rocker, not a rocking horse, but my traditional sensibilities keep looking for a horse’s head or tail.) Will their imagination grow in leaps and bounds with the lack of exterior input? In any case, it’s nice to see such a considered, spare interpretation of a toy.

Marmoreal White or Black Board

So, maybe you can’t quite afford to have Max Lamb’s Marmoreal Bathroom or even a Marmoreal Side Table. You’re not alone. However, if you’re really, truly in love with the engineered stone, maybe you can afford to serve your cheese on a Marmoreal Board. My favorite is the black (it looks like outer space!) but the white is equally appealing as it showcases the colors just as well.

It’ll keep your hands busy when you’re brainstorming (or waiting for an idea to hit, as is often the case).

Playtype Attitude Mugs

Are you an activist, a feminist, or an optimist? Or maybe you’re an egoist, a narcissist, or a materialist? Get the mug to match the quality you most identify with, and then prepare yourself for a high five (or a few raised eyebrows) when you next get your midmorning cup of coffee. Could be a good gift for a friend/family member too.

Turn Around Juicer

If you don’t mind using a little old fashioned elbow grease to produce your morning orange juice, then you’ll want to consider the simplicity of this wooden juicer from KiBiSi and Muuto. The Turn Around Juicer stands on its own and fits the palm nicely. Shall I point out that this won’t need any updating as years come and go, unlike other electrical juicers? Plus, the juice will taste all the more sweeter knowing you made it yourself (and burned some calories whilst doing so).

Prism Magnifier 120mm

That’s right, there’s the smaller Prism Magnifier, and now there’s the larger 120mm version. Through the prism, images and texts are shown at 1.5x the actual size, so we can study things a little closer and maybe squint a little less. As a bonus benefit, if sunlight happens to hit the prism at the right angle, you’ll get a little rainbow across your desk.

Theorem Desk Lamp

Inspired by the hypotenuse of a right triangle, this smaller LED lamp will tuck in nicely amongst your other desk items. You do remember what a hypotenuse is, right? The Theorem Desk Lamp from DAMM is made from hand turned solid Ash base, cerused (I had to look up what that meant), with a natural beeswax finish. And, if you’d like an alternate color scheme, there’s black as well. An alternate arm shape? Piazza.

PIFF Hooks

The all-black set of PIFF Hooks is decidedly suitable for many a modern interior, with its shiny Bakelite and ash posts capable of holding coats and scarves and other miscellany. However, if you don’t mind a bit of color, you absolutely have to consider the color sets: full red, orange/pink/purple, and pink/yellow/blue. So fun.

Grow Greenhouse

Anything that will help keep plants alive is pretty much a must-have, but this Grow Greenhouse has me itching to buy multiples. Two handmade glass parts combine to create a small nursery for beginning plants. A small valve on the top dome allows for air and moisture regulation, and a spout on the dome’s edge allows you to use it for watering. Smart, isn’t it?
