In his spare time, photographer and designer Sebastian Schramm takes quick improvised portraits of his colleagues using objects found around the office. Love this so much. (The blue paper one hangs in my living room!)
The latest product by the team of Ostrich Pillow looks like something I’d put to use: It’s a 3D ergonomic eye mask. They say the design adapts to the features of your face, with no eye pressure.

“The kindest people are not born that way, they are made. They are the sounds that have experienced so much at the hands of life, they are the ones who have dug themselves out of the dark, who have fought to turn every loss into a lesson. The kindest people do not just exist – they choose to soften where circumstance has tried to harden them, they choose to believe in goodness, because they have seen firsthand why compassion is so necessary. They have seen firsthand why tenderness is so important in this world.”
