Ridekick Electric Bicycle Trailer

Hmm... a detachable electric motor assist bicycle trailer. Quite brilliant, I'd say! How come no one has come up with this before? Having the motor transmission separate from the bicycle means not having to commit to an expensive, clunky, full-on electric bicycle, or a third-party add-on motor to your bike. You get to keep the bike you already own, and your bike stays just the way it is. Ride it ...Read more

Thuya Rainwater Tank

The world of above ground rainwater storage needs help. No matter how practical they are, most designs are eyesores and run the risk of upsetting your neighbors. However important that may or may not be, it's worth noting that there's definitely room for improvement. This tank is perhaps not the prettiest (nor the least expensive), but it is a heck of a lot better to look at than most, and ...Read more

Hi-Gloss Stepladder

Stepladders usually hide out in our broom closets and garages, but this guy is a different breed altogether. With a simple, clean-lined frame and super high-gloss wood, it begs to be noticed. An indent at the top of the frame and accompanying lacquered peg means it can be hung on whatever wall you deem appropriate, though considering the price tag I'd recommend the closet rather than the garage. (Also, if ...Read more

Mini Plopp Inflated Stool

Yes, we've featured this little guy before, but after a couple of years, he needs his info updated. This stool appears to be inflated plastic, but is, in fact, made from welded steel sheets that are industrially inflated. This manufacturing process (called FiDU (Freielnnen Druck Umformung)= 'free inner pressure deformation') was developed by Oskar Zieta and allows for lightweight forms to hold a fair amount of weight with minimal material. ...Read more

Same Same But Different Glasses

These three glasses are shaped differently yet each hold the same amount of liquid. The familial likeness combined with the slight shape variation would add a little interest and movement to a table top, and, best of all, they're stackable. Designed by Norway Says for Muuto. Each glass holds approximately 10oz (300ml). Made in Thailand. One set includes 3 glasses....Read more

Cross Tray Birch

Call me crazy, but I like the birch version of this tray so much more than the white. Thankfully, the tray is much less than the Cross and Crux blankets, so there's hope of adding it to one's home decor sooner rather than later. There's also a smaller size (31 cm) for 250kr, which works out to be around $37. The tray is built in 16 layers of birch with a strong laminated ...Read more
