Rhino Shield Screen Protector

As someone who has dropped an iPhone while walking in San Francisco experienced a shattered phone screen, this screen protector looks like it could be worth the price.

Mirror House

Reflective glass entirely covers the facade of this private villa, providing camouflage and privacy during the day. At night, one can only assume the home lights up like a lamp, but it's nevertheless notable for its minimal approach and detailed treatment. A compact and simple floorplan allows for an open feel despite the relatively small square footage, and the use of birch multiplex panels throughout the interior contrasts nicely with ...Read more

Nerd Chair

If the name's not enough to make you look twice, take a close look at the seat and back join. There's some pretty precise curves involved and a rather appealing humbleness in terms of scale and treatment. This chair used to be only available in the UK/Europe area, but now all of us in the states can order one without paying extra overseas shipping costs. Designed by David Geckeler ...Read more
