Woah, the Barbarian Group has one giant endless table that everyone works from. It offers work spaces for 175 people. Stunning.
Here’s a video that shows the entire desk.
We just mounted an 8 foot long DartStrip in our office and we are all loving it. It’s a super simple magnetic display system. Beautifully packaged. Easy to mount. A total winner.
Tickle is an app (concept?) to help you escape awkward situations. Using your phone’s accelerometer, Tickle can sense awkward gestures, and in turn, generate a phantom phone call to allow you to gracefully excuse yourself from whatever awkward situation you’re in. This made me laugh and double check if it’s not April 1st.
UPDATE: It’s a joke. Bummer.
Umbra’s U Turn 3 Hook made me look. It’s a wall mounted metal hook with wood tips that swivel forward when in use.
The Lumio Book Lamp is the most magical product I have come across in a long time. When I opened it in my studio yesterday everyone went wwwoooooaaaah! It is truly stunning.
When shut, Lumio masquerades as an elegant wood hardcover book. When opened, it magically transforms into a sculptural light illuminated by a high-performing LED.
Sending a virtual hug to the inventor Max Gunawan. And just like that, Lumio has become my favorite object.
Scott Gold and his wife visited Japan this January and beautifully documented their trip. Wish I had memories like this of my recent travels. Also, Japan, you’re beautiful.
Watch Ferrari’s F1 pit crew do a pit stop in a bit over two seconds. Crazy impressive.
This limited edition Cosmic Tote made me look. Love to discover more and more products made in the USA! YAY!
I think we could all use some Sunlight Pills just about now. Which ones would you like? Bahamas, Seychelles or BoraBora?
(Waving to you Australia! Enjoy that summer!)
I love it when people question and re-invent something that is seemingly not broken, i.e. the mechanics of a door. Congrats Austria based Klemens Torggler for this stunning door concept.
I remember what a hassle and expense it was to get business cards printed when I got my first design job in 1999. How the world has changed! MOO has completely redefined the landscape of business cards and notecards for that matter. They have made rich looking, full-color printed business cards affordable and accessible for anyone. I get so many compliments when I hand out my CreativeMornings card (see above). I love my cards so much, that we teamed up with MOO to send all of them a set of CreativeMornings Luxe Business Cards. Needless to say, the surprise was a success.
But my love for MOO goes beyond just the beauty and affordability of their cards. It’s the level of detail they put into everything they do. If you have ever received a MOO package you know what I am talking about. From the YAY sticker on the outside to the beautiful (!) business card box they come in. MOO cares. They care about good design. They care about delighting the customer. Consider me a fan.
Pour Mason is a pour-over coffee maker attachment made specifically for Mason Jars. Love the old-school look and feel of it. Also, they’re sold out. (womp womp)
