Seatylock is a bike seat that doubles as a bike lock. Brilliant.

Noi Worktable

Gasp! NOI Worktable by OHIO Design is the most beautiful, minimal giant desk I have ever seen. You can customize it in length and you can chose from a variety of surface materials. Me, I am all for white.

Thinking of a Master Plan

I don’t know about you, but I am constantly thinking about my master plan. So, this tote, by Paper Jam Press is absolutely perfect for me. (Also available: Everyday I’m Hustling.)

What started with a few posters has turned into a small empire; wall decals, temporary tattoos and now bags. Well done, Arianna!

My kids are obsessed with oogi, a rubber figure toy by Swiss company moluk. Watch the above video, you’ll understand why.

Memobottle

This flat, reusable water bottle made me look: It’s memobottle, a slimline, BPA free, dishwasher-friendly, reusable bottle that resembles the size and shape of pieces of paper.

One Of Many

David-Lee-CharlestonDiego-Castro-Oliva CharlestonKate-Nevin Charleston

My studiomate Wesley Verhoeve launched a fantastic new project called One of Many. Over the next few months, Wesley will travel to 12 cities across the US and over the course of a week immerse himself in their creative communities. The results are beautiful essays with stunning portrait photography and personal stories. Check out Charleston.

Wesley, who is the most outgoing person I have ever met, can strike up a conversation with anyone. When visiting these cities, he will be seeking out designers, chefs, woodworkers, farmers, engineers, writers, coffee brewers and anyone else making something that moves people.

Wesley believes that being a small business owner or a creative independent is exhilarating, but it can also be quite lonely and stressful. With One of Many Wesley wants to remind us that we are not alone. We are part of a growing movement. We are one of many.

This Fox Likes Tattoos

Cutie Tattotie Fox

Team Tattly partnered with North American Bear on tattoable dolls, called Cutie Tattootie. Seriously adorable, right. (Not to mention the girl!) The fox comes with 12 Tattly tattoos that the kid can either apply on themselves or on the doll. Put the doll in the washer and the tattoos disappear. Fun, right?

New Nomiku Sous Vide

The new Nomiku Sous Vide immersion circulator looks fantastic. If you like to be a nerd, even in the kitchen, Nomiku is for you.
