Drywall

As someone who really doesn’t like to clean the stove, I love the idea behind this slightly silly looking product called Frywall. It is a silicone splatter guard that fits inside the rim of any pot or pan, so spattering and sizzling food won’t spray out.

♥ / Mod Tablet 3

A big thank you to This Is Ground for sponsoring my blog and RSS feed this week!

This Is Ground is excited to announce the launch of the Mod Tablet 3. Three years ago, they conceived the Mod Tablet, a magnetic modular case, built to solve the needs of creative professionals. Since its introduction to the wild, the Mod has become the ultimate day-to-day & travel companion for designers, executives, Silicon Valley tech legends, leading chefs and foodies, actors, musicians, and global citizens of all stripes.

Now, after three years of intensive user testing, countless prototypes and at least two small explosions during experimentation, they are excited to share the most advanced Mod Tablet ever, the Mod 3.

Giant Marbles

Kosmosphaera is a Swiss labor of love between Jodoc Elmiger and Valérie Jacquemet. Together they create giant glass marbles, reminding me so much of my childhood in the Swiss mountains. How stunning would one of these look in my home?

(In case you’re in London, they are currently showing at Tent London T3 booth L10.)
