Picnic Corkscrew by Menu

Here’s a handy wine corkscrew to add to your picnic basket or pocket. The Picnic Corkscrew’s case becomes the handle, so it’s relatively compact to carry around. Soft, grooved silicone ensures a safe grip when opening the bottle. Designed by Jakob Wagner.

Seletti Atomizers

Certain scents for the home and table are gaining popularity, and, as you might be aware, there’s all sorts of options to add and mix fragrances to enhance a dining (or shopping) experience. Now, you might not like the idea of adding scents to your already excellent culinary experience at home, but these Atomizers by Seletti are done beautifully in mouth blown glass, and could just as easily be admired as art forms as they are containers. As Seletti says, “the forms, unexpected on the table, outline a new gestural expressiveness towards food.” They could just as easily hold a favorite personal fragrance as well, which might be a more likely use for most of us.

Set Edition’s Chipboard Postcards

A handwritten note is hard to beat, no matter how gifted you are at typing out a heartfelt message. I could go on and on to try and convince you to pick up a pen, but Set Edition’s Chipboard Postcards will most likely do the job for me, as their simple graphics won’t get in the way of your impressive (good or bad) handwriting.

CMYK Up Lamp

What the what is going on with this CMYK Up Lamp? Dennis Parren has combined red, yellow, and blue LED bulbs to create an interesting mix of light. When the three primary colors are combined, you’ll see a white light. However, when one of these color bulbs is blocked by the structural form of the lamp itself, then the other two combine to produce tertiary shadows (cyan, magenta, and yellowish colors). Pretty spectacular, isn’t it?

Slide Mirror

Sad news: it looks like there’s not a retailer stateside that carries these mirrors anymore. Happy news: you can buy them directly from the designer, Sylvain Willenz.

If you buy either of these mirrors, you might just have to get the Cuboid Doormat to continue the 3D illusion. Maybe add the Half a Table by Niels Van Eijk & Miriam Van der Lubbe and some seating from Acne for a distinct fun-house vibe.

Wörther Wood Mechanical Pencil

I’ve held my share of mechanical pencils, and there’s something entirely comfortable about the hexagonal, thick barrel of the Wörther Wood Mechanical Pencil. That ergonomic shape starts to become very important when you’re sketching or writing for longer periods of time, as you might know if you’re in any creative field. Plus, the fact the 3 mm thick graphite lead doesn’t need sharpening means that it’s an excellent tool for anyone who relies on a pencil for getting their ideas down on paper (or wood, metal, paper, or plastic, as the lead will work on almost every material).

Mirobolite Lamp

Let’s start the day off with a semi-expensive floor lamp. The Mirobolite has obvious influences from an ordinary task lamp, yet with its multiple joints and color options it becomes slightly extraordinary. ‘Slightly’ because the black and raw version don’t entirely blow your socks off, however, if you’re a little more daring in your color scheme, you might prefer the multicolor, which doesn’t hold back with its palette one bit.

Dual-Action Watering Can

If you have a green thumb, you might appreciate this sculptural Dual-action Watering Can. A recess in the base allows for a firm hold while the stainless steel lid allows for pouring from a removable spout or showering from the perforated section, take your pick. Holding the can’s neck instead of a handle is a bit more ergonomic too, which is a definite plus.

Cuboid Doormat

If details matter to you, maybe you’d like a better doormat. This one, made from coir (natural coconut fiber), is pretty cool in a minimal-sleek-undercover way. The 3D illusion makes a statement, or at least more so than a regular doormat. It would go well with this door, though it might look tiny in comparison, or this house (or, even better, this K House).

Future Glass set

The colors of the Future Glass Set remind one of the Spectra Vases, and, lo and behold, they’re from the very same glassworks Holmegaard. Peter Svarrer designed the Future Glass set in 2000, and more than a decade later they look just as lovely on the table… or in a gift box perhaps? Choose between Rose + Yellow, Blue + Green, or Lavender + Aquamarine.
