The Phytophiler No.2 (Mirrors) by Dossofiorito

Is it a science experiment? Is it a plant pot? Is it art? Hmm, can it be all three? Functional appendages like magnifying glasses and mirrors encourage you to interact with a plant on more intimate terms. Have you properly studied the underside of a leaf, or the color of a newly formed bud? The Phytophiler series by Dossofiorito is composed of hand-thrown terracotta pots and the aforementioned appendages, and, ...Read more

Lino Paper Knife

This paper knife is so sleek it's scary. A solid black matte finish and a super sharp point make it look like it's a futuristic weapon, and you're welcome to pretend it's such as long as you don't engage in any role play- someone is bound to get hurt. Keep it on your desk, admire it for its sculptural shape, and use it safely, as intended, as a paper knife. ...Read more

MH40 Over Ear Headphones

It is all but de rigueur to have a proper pair of headphones on your head, whether at work or at home. And, let's clarify, by 'proper' I mean premium leather, perhaps some steel components, an aluminum body, and maybe some 45mm neodymium drivers for high performance. Memory foam lambskin ear pads might also be nice, right? The MH40 has all that and more- take a look at Master & Dynamic ...Read more

Sensation Blanket by Zuzunaga

Think of this as a color field art piece that will keep you (or your giftee) warm. The handwoven mix of 100% ecological French merino wool shows color combination at a basic level: off-white, Yellow, Red, Green and Gray are woven to create a one larger rectangle of an earthy sort of yellow ochre. This one, the Sensation blanket, is my favorite, but there are others as well: Intuition, Feeling, and ...Read more

Funno Pencil Sharpener

What is this magical, mysterious thing? It looks infinitely more special than something that keeps a writing implement sharpened, but that's the whole idea- you can leave it out on your desk without offending anyone's eyes. Machined from a solid block of metal, it easily doubles as a paperweight. Do be sure to consider the Penpo Desk Organizer ($88) as well, as they'd make an excellent pairing on your desktop.

Nut Hammer

It's a Nut Hammer. It's a pretty smart idea: a removable silicone ball holds the nut in place- just strike the hammer against a flat surface and the cast-iron head will take care of the rest. The silicone keeps flying shards at bay and minimizes the mess usually associated with cracking nuts. It'd be an excellent holiday gift. Designed by Roger Arquer for Danish house Menu. Size: 11.75" l x 3.25" w ...Read more

Anita Johansen Day Bed

I know, I know, you're in full gift-getting mode and have little interest in improving your home's seating options, but just take a moment to look at this daybed. Its simple ash frame nods to Nordic construction while the thin ribbing of the seat cushion adds a big dose of modernism. The size would easily fit in a hallway, conversation area, or bedroom and its quiet sophistication is friendly rather ...Read more
