tuttisuperterra planter by marco ferreri

These look pretty amazing when stacked high and used as an outdoor space divider, though I’d be more than happy with just one.

Compact Stapler by Muji

While walking around NYC, Katie and I stumbled upon the MOMA store, which has a large section of Muji items from the well known Japanese retailer. We each bought a number of items, but the one I think we were both most excited about was the mini stapler. It’s tiny, functional and a perfect addition to my mobile office.

Wire Coatrack

Sure, there’s three of these shown, but one could stand on it’s own and be just as interesting (and you could add to it as you see fit).

The sculptural form is made with generous ellipses that facilitate the casual draping and hanging of garments, hats and bags.

I certainly don’t want to overwhelm you with a price tag (be forewarned), but this might be worth the investment if you’re wishing for a bed that’s unlike anything else out there. Quite impressive.

ICFF 2007 at NYC

Today was opening day at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in NYC. There were tons of booths with emerging designers as well as some more established lines. We’ve created a small slideshow with some of our favorites. Probably my personal favorite as a group was the Austrian Design Platform, which showcased some of the country’s up and coming exports.
