I am absolutely loving this latest FREITAG truck tarp backpack design called R521 COOLIDGE. It features a compartment with a padded base for a 15″ MacBook, a zippered outer pocket on the flap. and an adjustable cover flap for more volume.
Also, team FREITAG totally wins at product video:
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.
CreativeMornings HQ totally needs one of these Cork Globes so we can keep track of our growing chapters. (We are currently at 71, growing by 3-5 chapters a month)
Every party needs a little bit of confetti. No? This Confetti Bomb by Knot & Bow lets you carry emergency confetti in your purse. At all times.
What a beautiful modern globe. It came out of a collaboration between Monocle and Nendo Watanabe. Major cities are marked in bold type on a black and silver background. I’d give it a home!
ThePresent is an annual analog clock, displaying the present day, completing one revolution every 365 days. Created by the fine folks of m ss ng p eces. Absolutely love the notion behind this project; more awareness of the present, less hurry. Life’s a gift.
I just got back from a two-day Tattly country-side retreat where Natalie wore one of these Poler Napsacks pretty much 24/7. Here’s proof. It’s an ingenious invention if you ask me; a wearable sleeping bag. It has zippers at the shoulders, so you can stick your arms out, and a cinch at the bottom so that you can open it up and stick your legs out. Hike it up to your waist, cinch it, and wear it like a puffy coat around the campfire, and then crawl right back into your tent without ever having to leave the warmth of your bag.
Brilliant, right? Napsacks for everyone!
I noticed a lady on our office floor today with one of these stunning bags. It’s a Flea Bag. Thanks to Google I now know that Fleabags are the brainchild of Brooklyn based Shira Entis and Alex Bell. All of their bags are made with organic and vintage materials, vegetable-tanned and re-purposed leathers, and sourced in the USA. Consider me a fan!
I am a huge fan of soft boiled eggs on Sunday mornings. This is the most stylish egg holder I have come across so far: Eierbecher Set Eiche. #wishlisted
Various Keytags made me chuckle. These would make for a fun gift. (Thanks Brian)
Pop’ins bag by Deux Filles en Fil. The handbag is sold flat packed with press studs and Velcro, easy to assemble and disassemble. I like it.
The Impossible Instant Lab transforms any digital image into a real, unique analog instant photo via your iPhone or iPod touch. Simply select any photo from your iPhone, place it on the Instant Lab and within seconds it ejects your analog photo, ready to develop in front of your eyes.
It’s getting chilly here in NYC which reminded me of Pia Wallen’s beautiful Cross Blankets.
I just burst into a ‘I really really want this’ song when I discovered this metal Cinema Type Board. It comes with one pack of double sided font cards and holds up to 14 cards. It was designed by Goodwin + Goodwin and made in England.
So totally #wishlisted.
I know, I need to work on my obsession with all things red, but don’t you all have to admit that this Butler Red Side Table is quite beautiful?
I would totally sport this satchel.
Wow! Astronauts Irwin and Bull modeling the Apollo IVA (Intravehicular Activity) and (EVA) Extravehicular Activity spacesuits. I am grateful I have no dress code at the office.
This print of Apollo 1 Astronauts Working by the Pool made me smile. It shows them practicing water egress procedures in a swimming pool at Ellington Air Force Base (EAFB), Houston, Texas. Astronaut Edward H. White II rides life raft in the foreground. Astronaut Roger B. Chaffee sits in hatch of the boilerplate model of the spacecraft. Astronaut Virgil I. Grissom, third member of the crew, waits inside the spacecraft. June, 1966.
I totally want one of these prints for our studio! Available over on PrintCollection.
This Hand Shadow Puppet Chart made me look. Tempted to buy one for the kids room.
Congratulations to Herman Miller for the introduction of the Eames Molded Wood Chair. With help of 3-D veneer technology, wood veneer is being molded into the complex curves of a single shell. Stunning. Totally stunning.
Fashionable space nerds unite: Slowfactory sells silk scarves with prints from Nasa’s Hubble images. Yes, totally fantastic and nerdy.
Absolutely love this Numbers Pouf.
