Sempli’s Incanter

Sempli’s Incanter
Summer is right around the corner, which means you'll need cold drinks in good supply. Sempli's Incanter looks sort of fun, if you can get past the tipsiness that you might feel watching it spin around. Maybe you'll put fruits in the borosilicate glass infuser and then pour in a liquor, but I'd opt for water or lemonade because I'm not a boozehound (like you). There is something nice about...Read more

Chikuno Cube House

Chikuno Cube House
The above photo initially baffled me, as I wasn't quite sure what I was looking at. The honeycomb structure is what caused the confusion, as the Chikuno Cube is normally shown as a black, charcoal cube, and its honeycomb composition is not usually highlighted. If you're not familiar, the Chikuno Cube is made of activated bamboo charcoal and clay. The cube absorbs odors thanks to its tiny air pockets. To...Read more

Paper Lamp

Paper Lamp
Here's a nice lamp with a very affordable price tag. Inspired by origami, this lamp is constructed without any screws or glue. It's held together simply by its interlocking structure. Using minimal materials allows for a simple beauty that is also environmentally friendly- no small feat in this day and age, don't you think? This lamp ships from Hong Kong, fyi.

Jeeves Valet

Jeeves Valet
I'm sure we could play a quick guessing game as to what the above item might be, but let's jump to its purpose: it's a valet. A clothes valet, in case you are unaware, is usually a waist-high wooden stand of questionable aesthetic value that provides a hanging spot for oft-worn items that are wrinkle prone, like a favorite suit jacket. Now, this Jeeves Valet is functional, beautiful, and weird...Read more

Anodised Side Table by Max Lamb

Anodised Side Table by Max Lamb
Reduce a side table down to its essentials, and you'd get something similar to the Anodised Side Table by Max Lamb. Made with three sheets of aluminium plate (or aluminum, if you prefer) locked together with four countersunk socket bolts, the low table is left unfinished to highlight the material's "inherent beauty". There's a larger Anodised Coffee Table as well as a wonderful Cobalt and Gold color. Anodised Side Table,...Read more

Third Eye Vessel

Third Eye Vessel
I could have sworn we've featured the Third Eye Vessel by Chen Chen & Kai Williams before, but apparently I've been lusting after it for so long that its image is permanently embedded in my brain. It's a vessel for holding books and magazines, and it keeps objects stacked at right angles, so you can easily see the spines. You may think it's ridiculous to pay so much for such...Read more

Capello Lamp

Capello Lamp
Let's just get this straight: this lamp is $260*. Compared to the Love Letter Light (also by molo), which ran around the $400 mark, that's a bargain. Now, consider its marble base, which is actually a byproduct from the base for the Arco floor lamp designed by the Castiglioni brothers. Next, the little paper cap (“cappello” in Italian) is attached to the steel wire with a simple magnetic connection, which...Read more

Fasten it magnetically to your handlebar when you're riding and pop it off and put it in your bag or pocket when you're on foot. Designer: Odo Fioravanti...Read more

Open and Closed Helix Keyring

Open and Closed Helix Keyring
I've got a thing for simple keyrings, so of course these two Helix Keyrings by Craighill caught my eye. Choose between the open and the closed; both have one knurled side for adding or removing keys. As they say on their site, the keyrings would be "a daily, tiny joy." Made in Ohio and Illinois Each $30.00 Open Helix Keyring, $30.00...Read more

Yeh Wall Table

Yeh Wall Table
If you're short on space, you'll want to take a look at this Yeh Wall Table by Taiwan-based designer, Kenyon Yeh. Inspired by the position of someone sitting against a wall with their feet placed firmly on the ground, the table rests against the wall with the help of a small, upturned 90-degree angle on its edge. It won't take up much room, yet will provide just enough space for...Read more
