Fredericks & Mae Star Dominos

Is $80 too much for dominos? Probably. Does that keep me from wanting this set? Nope. Fun fact: the name 'domino' from the pieces' resemblance to Venetian Carnival masks known as Domini, which were white with black spots. There's also plenty of other games from Fredericks & Mae, ranging from $44 (darts) to $320 (bocce!). 9" x 3" x 2" Materials: baltic birch, ink, paper. From our archives; originally posted Dec 21, 2011....Read more

SOND™ Watch

Yes, the SOND Watch by VOID is rather large, but it's also reassuringly old school. The watch itself secures the nylon band, making it easy to change and adjust. It's not for everyone, I know, but it is a fun option for a wristwatch, especially considering there's eight colors of each component (the watch case, the watchband and the silicone fitting loops) so you have the possibility to create over 500 ...Read more

Plopp Inflated Stool

We've featured this little guy before, but after several years, he needs his info updated. This stool appears to be inflated plastic, but is, in fact, made from welded steel sheets that are industrially inflated. This manufacturing process (called FiDU 'Freielnnen Druck Umformung' = 'free inner pressure deformation') was developed by Oskar Zieta and allows for lightweight forms to hold a fair amount of weight with minimal material. No two are ...Read more

Definition Scarf

If you're into graphic design, you might appreciate a scarf with the Definition of Graphic Design as authored by MATTER's design director Rick Griffith. It's made from soft cotton, so it's light enough for summer nights (or sun protection) or for layering during cooler months. Available from Matterial, $20. There's also Annotated Definition Pillowcases with the same definition, fyi. 15" x 92" Soft Cotton Scarf ...Read more

Eau Carafe

Similar to black + blum's 'Eau Good' Filter Water Bottle, this Eau Carafe is the ideal candidate for storing water in your fridge. A binchotan active charcoal filter purifies the water while the overall shape is pleasing to hold and pour from; it's even nice enough to keep it out during dinner. You can't say that for many water purifiers. Made from hand blown soda glass Natural cork top (not dishwasher ...Read more

Index Collection Tea Towels

If you're interested in color theory, have I got the tea towels for you. Raw Color has created a series of tea towels that explore concepts from graphic design in woven form. From 10% to 100% intensity, each box of color appears to be printed on as a sort of large scale screen key (those little boxes on the sides of printed fabrics), yet each is expressed by altering the fabric weave. ...Read more

On a Roll Tape Dispenser

A tape dispenser is rarely described as anything other than just plain (snore) useful, but black + blum have certainly put their brains to use in creating one that is decidedly better than above average- and that translates into pretty damn good. Yep, you read it right, that's a 'damn' in front of a 'good' and I'm talking about a tape dispenser. Gravity removes the need for a separate spindle and ...Read more

3 Leg Table

You won't like the price tag, but you will probably grow to like- or even love- Wrk-shp's 3 Leg Table. It's a little quirky but also entirely minimal and simple in its approach to providing a surface and a light. Three steel legs, one of which houses the fabric covered cord of the light fixture, balance the console-sized wood top, resulting in a perfect piece to live in an entryway or ...Read more

NYC Transit Kerchief

Maybe you have the NYC Subway map memorized, and, if so, good for you. The rest of us rely on our smart phones when we're in the city, and, oh, the horror when our battery dies and there's not a reliable map to be found street side. If we had a NYC Transit Kerchief (or a Crumpled City Map), we could pull it out of our bag or pocket and ...Read more

Corner Hanging Bar

What is this, you ask? It's a Corner Hanging Bar, and it has come to rescue that pile of clothes on the floor. Now, this might be handier to have during the winter months, as there are all sorts of scarves and coats and such that seemingly multiply without so much as a second glance, but summer has its array of accessories as well. And, if you need some extra ...Read more

Plum Cocktail Shaker

Let's be honest: some of Tom Dixon's products look like they should be on the altar of some strange, futuristic church (Cog Candelabra) or else an excellent receptacle for cremains (Beat Vessel). That might sound a little morbid or serious, but I mean it as a compliment. For instance, the Plum Cocktail Shaker could easily live in some sacred place with its bright copper plating. However, considering its purpose, best ...Read more

Smash Cup

You can plan to donate or recycle your big travel mug, because you won't need it once the Smash Cup ships in October. But you love your travel mug, don't you? Well, is your mug collapsible and highly portable? No? I thought so. The Smash Cup is a reusable cup that can be 'smashed' down after you've finished your coffee/tea. Fun, right? It's leak-proof, so you can stuff it ...Read more

Peg Board

The old peg board: we all know it has its usefulness, but it could stand for a makeover. That's the thought behind Human Crafted's Peg Board. Made by hand from machined walnut, each board also comes with a bungee cord, which gives the board various storage functions. Choose a few accessory hooks and you have more possible customizations for specific items (kitchen tools, keys, etc.). Combine all three sizes for ...Read more

Funnell – EJECT | WEAR

You know when you're riding your bike or walking on the street and all of the sudden it starts to rain? You have to stop, get out your rain gear- if you have it- and put it on, then pedal or walk to your destination partially soaked, which is really no fun at all. That's exactly where this backpack comes into play. A jacket ejects out of the backpack quickly (...Read more
