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.
After discovering Happy In NYC a few days ago I kept telling my studiomate Kevin he should dance through Studiomates, our co-working space. Today is Kevin’s birthday and Bas (of Like Knows Like) made it happen. You should see the smile on my face. I was holding the stereo as we walked through our spaces, and I am making a quick cameo at the end.
Happy birthday Kevin! You’re the best!
A custom stamp of your face. Why not? Definitely makes for a fun gift.
I want to be friends with the inventor of this Horse Head Squirrel Feeder. Made me laugh.
Being a dog just got a whole lot more interesting thanks to Architecture for Dogs. Made me smile.
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.
I am a Designerd. Are you?

I just had the pleasure to meet one of the co-founders of Switzerland based Studio Banana. Key Portilla-Kawamura is one of the forces behind the wonderful Ostrich Pillow and now it’s smaller brother the Ostrich Pillow Light, pictured above. These pillows are made in a small town in Spain and revived a dying factory. What is not to love?
Key also gave a CreativeMornings talk in Geneva a year ago. Yay for smart creative people making cool stuff. And yay for the internet connecting us all.
Gasp! These Airportag Pillows are the perfect gift for the globetrotting friend. (I am so ordering the JFK and HND one)
This post on 20 Kids Winning at Hide and Seek made me laugh so hard. It reminds me of my days when I documented my son’s silent meltdowns: It’s Hard Being Two.
LOL my thesis sums up years of work in one sentence. Made me laugh!
Now this is a toaster I’d gladly have sit out on the kitchen surface at all times: Camper Van Toaster. Made me smile.
MADE worked on a last minute brief from a renowned global logistics coordinator (aka Santa) to create Kringle. Watch the behind the scenes video to see how they did it. Made me smile.
