Tickle helps you Escape Awkward Situations

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.

Happy At Studiomates

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!

Happy birthday Kevin! You’re the best!

Lumio Book Lamp

Lumio Book Lamp

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.

Ostrich Pillow Light

Ostrich Pillow LightOstrich Pillow Light

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.
