Kai Shelving by Jean Louis Iratzoki for Treku

Kai Shelving by Jean Louis Iratzoki for Treku
Does this shelving remind you a tiny bit of the New Order Shelving by Stefan Diez? Maybe a little? It's similar in that it has dividers and optional panels that can be moved around to suit your preferences. Each shelving unit comes with two movable dividers, one back panel, and one storage box with push latch. Each unit is fully finished on all sides- you know what that means, don't...Read more

Pepper Tray

Pepper Tray
Pepper dust. If you have a pepper mill, you know all about how it sits just under your mill whenever you set it down, creating little dust piles of pepper. How about a tray to keep it contained? Yes, it's the smallest detail, and maybe a little unnecessary, but you like to keep your kitchen spic and span, this may be your pepper mill's new best friend. Made by hand...Read more

Unseen Backpack

Unseen Backpack
Do you want a special sort of backpack? This one by The Unseen Emporium transforms from black to vivid colors in response to fluctuations in air pressure. A little reptilian, no?

2017 Scratchable Wall Calendar
May I suggest you sit down, take a sip of water, and prepare yourself? Because this is the first calendar of 2017 I've seen and it surprised the hell out of me. 2017!? It's July, though, yes, just barely. It'll soon be August, then September, October... you know the rest. The onslaught of holidays, etc. Ugh. Maybe you could get a jumpstart on the impending doom, or at least ease...Read more

Folded Vessel
Ah-ha! This proves that some designers are mercifully kind to those of us that can't afford to just plonk down a thousand plus dollars for a beautiful book/magazine stand. Chen Chen & Kai Williams have designed the Folded Vessel for Good Thing, and it's similar, though less expensive, to their Third Eye Vessel design. Three identical petals fasten together to form the floor-standing container, giving you an excellent spot to...Read more

Nice! These solid American Ash chopping boards are made from off-cuts. That means every circle, octagon, or square board you buy, you're reducing the amount of wood that ends up in a landfill.

Bambus Glass Carafe

Bambus Glass Carafe
How about another nice carafe to hold your hydration source? This handblown carafe was inspired by the bamboo of Zen gardens; it has an elegant handle and a drinking glass that fits perfectly on top. As stated before, a carafe lets you rely less on plastic bottles of water (hooray!) and more on your own two feet... to get water from the office cooler or your fridge's filter. Perhaps while...Read more
