OW150 Daybed

Let's just pretend that we have space for a daybed, and budget enough to not blink an eye at the price tag of the OW150. Any guess as to who the designer is? Put your deerstalker hat on and connect the dots: OW150 = OW = Ole Wanscher. Ole Wanscher, whose furniture "exudes underplayed elegance and is it timeless, classic and thoroughly modern at one and the same time." The bottom/seat ...Read more

What is it?

I write 'what is it?' as the title knowing full well that if you're viewing this post on our RSS feed, you'll see the revealing photo first. Sorry. If you don't see the revealing photo, you can play along. So, what is it? Hint: it's not an ironing board cover, nor is it a double layered apron. Also, (this might give it away) some of us wish we could ...Read more

Along with the pleasure of thumbing through hundreds of printed works, you'll also be able to read up on his process (if you think ...Read more

The Bike Pump Keychain

This is a bike pump. On a keychain. How can that be? This little key chain attachment is the missing link between you and air compressors found throughout your city. Simply remove it from your key chain, connect it to one end of an air compressor at an auto shop (or fire station), and then connect the other end to your bike tire.

Magda Bookshelf

Interesting. This bookshelf is basically one steel tube with one central support, a little different from the usual two-bracket-one-flat-shelf idea, isn't it? It's stated that no tools are needed, but seeing as there screws in the picture, you might want to have a Phillips screwdriver handy. Manufactured by Quattria. Painted steel tube with ends of lathed beechwood. Dimensions: W:20″ D:5.1″ H:7.5″ Designed by Project Artik. ...Read more

Shayk Pendant Light

Say what you will about synthetic paper, but don't knock its affordability in the lighting department. Designer Amanda Betz was inspired by the Sheikh Lutf Allah Mosque in Isfahan, Iran, and, as you can see, she created a honeycomb-like pattern to mimic the design on the mosque's dome. Be sure to take a look at the shadows cast by this light, for you'll not be short on ambience if you ...Read more

Kobenstyle Casserole

It's safe to say I've not cooked anything complicated, much less anything involving the word 'casserole', yet I'm certainly drawn to this bold red dish designed by Jens Quistgard. The handle design seems almost too (dare I say) pretty, but the weld points actually limit heat transfer. The lid can also be inverted for use as a trivet. And can you guess when it was designed? Was it a: 1923, b: 1956, ...Read more
