Etch Light Web

What a show stopper. The new Etch Light Web by Tom Dixon casts a lovely angular pattern when lit, showing off an elegant result of geometry applied to design. An irregular pentagon is repeated 60 times to create a total sphere approximately 65cm wide, and despite the size, the sphere remains lightweight at just over 2 pounds. It’s available for pre-order now through The Lollipop Shoppe in the UK, available September 2012.

“Pinchy” Wooden Clip

Yes, you could go on using those plastic clips to keep your bag of snacks fresh. You could also choose to purchase these wooden pins (made from sustainable farmed wood, of course). Perhaps the wooden pins would add the tiniest bit more pleasure in that they’re “designed”, but then again, perhaps you’d be just as happy with old fashioned wooden clothespins (24 pack for $9).

Cookbook holder

If you still fumble about with your cookbook while craning your neck to read ingredients, you need to stop messing around and get a cookbook holder. In most cases, they’re not that expensive, and they help free up a little more counter space so your culinary art skills have room to flourish. The Sagaform Cookbook Holder is a quite decent choice at $25, as is the Lipper Bamboo Holder at $18.53 (pictured below). You’d also do well to consider an acrylic shield option to protect your books from splatters and spills. More shown below.

Iittala Jars

Iittala Jars are certainly a beautiful way to store away your odds and ends in the kitchen, bathroom, or office. The jars are mouth-blown of non-leaded glass and have airtight lids with a rubber seal. Considering the cost, you might want to use these jars for areas where they’d be seen- maybe on open shelving in the kitchen- because it’d be a shame to hide them away in a cupboard or cabinet. Note: You are able to purchase jars separately, however the links below are for sets of 5, in either small or medium sizes.

Meg Callahan Quilts

Holy. How nice is it to see some super modern graphic patterns applied to quilts? Matter has three of Meg Callahan’s quilts entitled ‘Spine’, ‘Ada’, and ‘Harrah’ on their website, and while the prices aren’t listed, we’ll assume they’ll not be what most of us would call affordable. They are, however, what most of us would call amazing. The Spine and Ada quilts use digital printing and industrial machine quilting while Harrah is an entirely hand stitched patchwork.

Japanese Shouting Vase

This vase is definitely not the prettiest of things, but it sure does pack a useful punch of a function: it absorbs your screams, shouts and frustrations. When you release your expletives/anger, only a whisper soft version comes out through the tiny hole at the base (do be sure to use it in a wise location). The gift scenarios are endless, of course, so it wouldn’t hurt to bookmark it for the future.

Incredibly cute and, more importantly, smart, this little guy will eliminate the lemon-juice-on-the-hands situation that always seems inevitable. Also, the black version is on sale for $30 at greenergrassdesign, fyi.
