Workhorse Perpetual Calendar

Workhorse Perpetual Calendar
Another calendar already and it's not even the end of August? I know, I know, but this one is a perpetual calendar. Anyone who's visited this site often enough will know that I'm fanatic about perpetual calendars, specifically well-designed ones, so I can't not post it. This one from Workhorse Printmakers is letterpress printed, foil stamped and die cut for a functional circular design. Workhorse also has a green calendar...Read more

Clock Clock 24

Clock Clock 24
Whoa, here's a clock that'll knock anyone's socks off.

All the smaller clock hands are choreographed to show either 12- or 24-hour time, with three different modes of movement. As I said before, watch the video and you'll appreciate how this clock is almost...Read more

Milà Chair by Jaime Hayón

Milà Chair by Jaime Hayón
Let's take a look at the Milà Chair by Jaime Hayòn for Magis. It's a little less severe than some of our other favorite chairs, but it has a sculpted, playful quality that reminds us a little of Gaudí's creations (i.e. Catalan Modernism). The organic shape is achieved thanks to a a gas-assisted injection moulding technique, which makes the Milà easier to produce and therefore very affordable. Keep a set...Read more

Afteroom Bench by Menu

Afteroom Bench by Menu
You could say that this price is kind of high for a skinny leather bench, but then I'd need to remind you that it has a marble side table incorporated into its powder-coated metal frame and it would be a cool piece to have in an entryway or odd corner space, especially as it would add seating without taking up too much visual or physical space. Then you'd say I'm...Read more

Need more storage space for paperwork?
