al5010 Watch

Pardon the pun, but this watch is timeless. Designed by Piero Lissoni for Alessi, I could see this on the wrist of any man for years to come. Clean, simple design, the square face is elegantly rounded, with a full-sweeping second hand.

Here’s something you may have seen before (possibly from our ICFF summary…she was at the DesignBoom showcase). These are modern and interesting and totally affordable.

These pendants are part of Melissa Borrell’s “How do you wear a drawing?” project. Taking the shape that she developed for the tree necklace and reducing it in size gives another perspective on the same graphic element. The pendant is made from photo-etched stainless steel and comes in a square of metal from which it is easily “popped” out. It comes with a chord so that you can make it into a pendant to wear around your neck. Stainless steel with rubber cord.

Industrial Bloom Necklace

This necklace is pretty interesting design-wise, but the appreciation grows once the material and process of how it’s made is known.

“Industrial Bloom’s flowerlike facade is contrasted by the materials from which it’s made. Shavings of Hytrel, a high tech thermoplastic elastomer, are typically discarded during the machining process. We’ve embraced the individually unique shapes emitted by this production process and use it as the focal point. Each is combined with black or orange rubber cord to offset the delicate white flower.”

Plya necklace

The Plya necklace is pretty special. It’s composed of wood and aluminum and is available in either walnut or beech.

“The Plya collection celebrates the interaction of two opposing materials: wood and aluminum. Negative spaces in wood are completed with metal accents questioning the concept of preciousness. In this work, the gem exists in the negative spaces allowing metal and even the individual to become focal points.”
