Don’t Ashtray by Josh Owen

Make your thoughts known without saying a word.

“The Don’t Ashtray by Josh Owen is an exercise in civility. It employs graphic iconography in an attempt to negatively influence the smoker against his or her habit while at the same time providing a receptacle for it. Industrial designer Josh Owen is well known for his work exploring the boundaries between art and design. Ceramic with rubber bottom. 4″ Dia.”

Speed Laces

Have you seen these yet? I think they’re pretty neat and definitely look a little snazzier than regular ol’ laces. The grey things screw into the existing holes of your sneakers and then you thread the new stretchy (or non-strechy if you prefer) laces in/around and suddenly your old sneakers look a whole lot cooler (and supposedly more comfy too).

Lots of color options for laces to choose from; fittings are available in off-white, gray, and black.
