DIY: The Kintsugi Kit

DIY: The Kintsugi Kit
You know about kintsugi, or kintsukuroi, right? It's the "Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum," according to Wikipedia. Well, now you can try your own hand at the art, by using this Kintsugi kit from Etsy. Of course, you could also just mix gold dust with an epoxy you find at your local hardware store, and then try to...Read more

Minimalist 2 Key Ring Bottle Opener

Minimalist 2 Key Ring Bottle Opener
This key ring looks more like a piece of jewelry than a bottle opener, so I suppose we could look at it as multi-purpose kind of accessory. A triangle pin keeps the shackle closed, keeping your keys secure and your hand at the ready should an unopened bottle of beer or soda cross your path. Each key ring is precisely cut within thousandths of an inch by family company J....Read more

Mies Dining Table

Mies Dining Table
Not many of us have room for an eight-foot-long dining table, but it sure is nice to see it exists in such a pared-down/minimalist style. And, if customizing the length isn't enough for you, there's quite a few material options: powder-coated or chromed steel legs, with a "straightforward" linoleum, laminate, or "swank" marble top. Designers (founders of brand Million): Jens Kajus and Claus Jakobsen Small: 28.75" h x 78.75" w...Read more

The City Clock

The City Clock
Put your thinking cap on, because you're going to need it to decipher the time of The City Clock. Yes, it's a clock, and not a dollhouse, but you'll have fun assembling it all the same. So, how do you figure out the time? Think of the windows as vertical rows, and, when certain windows are illuminated, use binary clock technology to know the time. If you know what that...Read more

Time Since Launch Clock

Time Since Launch Clock
Okay, get ready, because this clock is pretty damn special. It's a single-use, long-scale launch clock. Huh? Yep, you pull the pin to start counting, up to 2,738 years. Why do you need that? Well, maybe you stopped smoking/drinking, or maybe you got married. Maybe you had an epiphany that could save the world, or perhaps you quit the worst job you've ever had.

Profile Servers

Profile Servers
Don't these salad servers look like they should be on the set of a futuristic movie? The ridged profile of extruded aluminum nests neatly in a bowl, drawer, or hook. You could even go super edgy and serve single portions on on the servers, as a sort of skinny dish (image below)....Read more

Cantaro Pots

Cantaro Pots
Now, these are some pretty plant pots. The burnished clay shapes with black steel bases look like sculptural art, and, for good reason: each one takes three weeks to complete. All Cantaro pots are made start-to-finish in a fair trade environment by master artisans in Jalisco, Mexico. Note that over time, the finish will fade, giving it a softer, lighter hue. Handcrafted in Mexico by Manos of Occidente Small: 9”D...Read more

Hot Stuff! Food Thermometer

Yep, you read that right, Hot Stuff! is the name of this food thermometer. And it looks kind of exciting, if you can say that about a thermometer. A silicone body makes it easy to hold and use, and there's an adjustable marker so you see when your meal reaches the desired temperature (it also acts as a stopper so the thermometer won't roll away).
