It feels good to innovate.
What a beautiful bottle opener this is! Wow! How perfect when a mundane object like a bottle opener has such decorative and sculptural qualities.
A Luckey Climber is a three dimensional sculpture designed for children to climb on.
Made of bent plywood platforms that are suspended by steel pipes and cables, climbers are visually elegant works of art that are also part jungle gym and once alive with children they become what Thomas Luckey called “fountains of children.“
Absolutely love this.
(Also, made me think of this episode…)
This Swedish Bike Cup Holder made me look: Open the spring by pressing the rings together, place it on the handlebar and let go. The cup holder clamps down on the handlebars and sits firmly in place never losing grip even during rides over bumps and potholes.
Ethan King is an inspiring 14 year old. At 10 he started Charity Ball to execute his vision of giving away soccer balls to kids in need. He has since given 4,000+ balls away. Humbling.
IKEA is helping my Tennis withrawals with this Solur Tennis Trainer. I can hit the ball alone, one some big open space, no wall or partner needed. Yes!
This post is yet another perfect example why I love Melissa Easton’s blog. Who else would ask themselves “How many caps does a single household possess?“
How stunning is this letter writing set by HAIBARA? The coloured rims are done by woodblock prints on washi papers. Also comes in light blue. Totally wishlisting this one.
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.
