Valentine’s Day Stuff

Valentine’s Day Stuff
If you absolutely have to participate in the overblown holiday that is Valentine's Day, you have my sympathy. To provide you with support, here are a few things that are a design aficionado's equivalent to a fluffy teddy bear and a shiny-red-heart-shaped mylar balloon, and are therefore entirely acceptable to give to someone you care about. A sappy/sentimental card is optional. 1. Wörther Wood Mechanical Pencil, $42.00 2. 'Love Heart'...Read more

Brooklyn Desk

Brooklyn Desk
The Brooklyn Desk has clever little storage boxes that slip over its edge, which means the boxes can be arranged to suit the user's preferences exactly. Now, do keep in mind it is a smaller worktop, so it's ideal for smaller people (and smaller spaces), and would be especially suitable for a growing child, as the desk height is adjustable (up to adult height). Perhaps with enough interest, Oeuf will...Read more

Hidden Channel Wall Coat Rack

Hidden Channel Wall Coat Rack
A hidden top channel behind the brass-finished iron pegs makes this coat rack special. Keep mail, notes, and reminders propped up right where you put on (and take off) your coat/jacket, and chances are you'll be less likely to ignore them. This looks a lot like the Muir Wall Coat Rack from Amenity (just flipped around), doesn't it? 36"Wx5"Dx4"H -Handmade -Sustainable acacia wood -Brass-finished iron pegs -Wall-mounting hardware included -Supports...Read more

Wings Lamps by Haim Evgi Design Studio

Wings Lamps by Haim Evgi Design Studio
While these lamps are inspired by different bird wings, some of us may tend towards a stronger zoomorphic interpretation, for the lamp can appear to stand like a bird, with the solid oak shade as its head. A thin iron leg and base gives the lamp a perched stance, which takes up minimal room on a desktop or tight floor plan. Shade made of solid oak; can illuminate up and...Read more

What is it?

What is it?
What do you think of this*? It's made of cement, and it's about the size of a small shoe. Any guesses as to what it is? It's an amplifier for your iPhone. A piece created for CB2's Design Collab No. 2, student Hyunsong Melody Lee created the SAIC pebble amplifier to increase the volume of your phone purely by passive amplification. Place the phone in the top groove and you'll...Read more

Austin Maynard Architects: Mills House

Austin Maynard Architects: Mills House
Yes, the Mills House by Austin Maynard Architects does have a cool metal mesh on its rear facade to shade it from the sun. It also has the same mesh running throughout the home, most notably on the stairs and on the floor of the upper level. That's a neat material to use, as it lets light filter through and the air circulate. There's also a smart little design detail...Read more

Table Tiles Optic

Table Tiles Optic
Add a few stripes and you've got a 3D illusion. That's sure to cause endless rearranging to get different patterns when these coasters are placed together for a table trivet. Two functions in one, plus a pattern play = fun! If you'd rather less stripes and more color blocks, then there's the plain(er) Table Tiles for your consideration. Designed By Bower Material: MDF, Wood, Paint Dimensions: 3.5 x 3.25 x...Read more

Push Coffee Maker by Muuto

Push Coffee Maker by Muuto
Mette Duedahl’s Push Coffee Maker is made of a warm grey stoneware in a rounded shape, which seems a little friendlier to touch and hold than the normal glass carafes used in most households. You'll find the plunger is made of steel, so no worries as to the durability of daily use, and the lid is clear plastic, allowing you to check the progress of the brew. Duedahl’s Coffee Mugs...Read more

Sweeper and Funnel

Sweeper and Funnel
It's just a regular ol' sweeper and dustpan, so what's the big deal? Well, the dustpan has a hollow handle, which allows you to store the sweeper perfectly inside, and, perhaps more importantly, also enables you to cleanly deposit dust & debris into the trash with ease. Smart! From Menu. Dimensions: 12.2" x 9.1" x 2.8" Updated price and link; originally from our archives (posted Oct 27, 2014)....Read more

H Blocks

H Blocks
You need a break. Pick up some of these H Blocks and play around with architectural towers and landscapes, or just mess around with different colors making patterns. And, yes, these would be good for kids to play with, but they'll be just as good for your brain (most likely) and some of your coworkers too (if you want to share). Available in black, white, and natural. Solid Beech Wood...Read more

Giant Edison Kit

Giant Edison Kit
You might be yawning right now, seeing another Edison Bulb on your screen, but this one is super-sized. It's 12.5" in diameter. Go ahead, pick up a ruler or measuring tape to remind yourself just how large a bulb would be in that dimension. Perhaps hang one above a smaller dining table, or go for a group of three or five to make a huge statement. Size: 12h x 12.5"diam...Read more
