BL9M Pendant

A bit of brass won't hurt you if you put it in the right place, namely, above your head in the shape of a light fixture. Bestlite lamps have a history; did you know that Robert Dudley Best's lamp was the first example of Bauhaus in the UK, and required quite a bit of argument to put it into production? Interesting, as the collection now looks rather traditional, in a ...Read more

Fusillo Shelf

Don't go thinking this is a static shelf- it's made of modules that rotate around a central axis so that it can change according to your needs. Each module has a sharp curve at its inner end, so that when it's flipped up/down, it acts as hook, and the top of the module could serve as a bookend, as shown in the photos below. One in a smaller entryway ...Read more

Silicone Wine Glass

Finally, a wine glass that won't shatter when one throws it against a wall for emphasis. There's also a Martini set, if that's your choice of drink. We can all thank the wondrous material silicone for helping us to avoid those annoying glass shards at home, the park, or the beach. Now all we need is a bottle-sized version to decant the wine (with an adequate stopper) and the full ...Read more

Stool One vs. Kaysa

It seems like everyone has an opinion on knock-offs these days, and personally, I always sympathize with the original designer. In my own home, we save up for the licensed versions of whatever piece we love, but I do realize that many people just can't afford to do so and will sacrifice provenance and, at times, quality for a similar look. Which brings us to the matter at hand: Konstantin ...Read more
