Felt Rocks by Molo

“in their raw form, a felt rock is technically a lump of felt formed when small bits of wool fluff gather while making polishing wheels for optical lenses, spun around in a drum with them.

with steam and pressure, each stray piece of wool begins to entangle itself with others roughly creating a completely unique rock-like shape without the help of any bonding agents.

each felt rock is then carefully selected by molo and then finished through their own process.

felt rocks are solid all the way through, made out of 100% pure wool felt, and carefully dyed. they come in hand selected sets of 5 ( 2 natural and 3 grey, or 2 moss green and 3 grey ) and are packaged in a natural grey wool felt bag.

each one is completely unique with a different shape and size, although most measure around 4 – 6 inches across.”

Molo Soft Wall

The Molo Soft Wall is now 50 % off (as of Oct 2, 2007).

“Pioneering inventive and environmentally sound applications for novel materials, Todd MacAllen and Stephanie Forsythe have molded Tyvek (a white polyethylene fiber-based sheet material made by DuPontTM ) into a modular Softwall. Few partitions can transform space with such visual delicacy and material strength. The partition opens up to 20 feet, employing a simple but robust accordion pleat that retracts as easily as it opens. Designed to be freestanding, the Softwall should be arranged with gentle curves for stability. It has a subtle translucence that allows silhouettes of passing forms to sift through. Spot-cleanable and virtually indestructible, the Wall is suitable for domestic and office use.

This item is flammable and is not intended for high traffic public spaces.”

Even condensation can be aesthetically pleasing…

“It basically turns the notion of annoying condensation rings on ist head, and make them something to look forward to. Every time you lift your glass a beautiful Cherry Blossom, the Sakura Flower appears and subtely changes its shape…This is an amazing quality glass, the base feels thick and heavy, yet the walls are nice and thin giving off a crisp chime when toasted. The cherry blossom is etched perfectly into the base, so it creates a beautiful and perfect shape each time the glass is lifted…”
