Frame Drawing Pad

A quick framing job is just what your drawings need, because, let's face it, you're not a famous artist (yet). I'd suggest scattering a few of these around the house for friends and family to play Picasso and possibly leave you some excellent little cartoons that you'll cherish for years... or throw away as soon as they leave the room, it's up to you. Spiral-bound sketchbook with an integrated cardboard ...Read more

Rocket Stool

The well known Eero Aarnio designed this three-legged stool in 1995, and, as you can tell, it hints at his other work with its rounded ("plump") seat and legs. Interestingly enough, the Rocket was originally designed for Eero Aarnio's own kitchen, though it'd do just as well in other rooms. The solid wood stool is available in oak wood painted white, black or soaped, and in two different sizes, Rocket Stool ($435) ...Read more

Concertina Wood Trivet

Trivets aren't necessarily exciting, are they? Charged with the task of protecting our tabletops, they're meant to be covered up with pots and dishes with little thought to their aesthetic value. However, this walnut trivet does a neat trick of extending from a small area to a rather long length, allowing it to fit your feast from one dish to several. It looks like a stack of chopsticks when closed, ...Read more

Peter Fehrentz’s Renovated Flat

If you subscribe to Dwell magazine, you probably already saw this flat in Berlin, but I'd like to point out that a few risks does wonders for a small space.
