I am often annoyed at my phone cable slipping off my night stand or desk. I just discovered the good looking SurfaceSnaps. They are aesthetically pleasing and won’t damage the surface you stick them on. What’s not to love?
While perusing small shops in Saugerties, upstate NY today, I discovered this Forestbound ESCAPE bag. I gifted it to myself. As I was looking them up once I got home, I saw that you can get your own customized bag. What a fun gift.
(As a trained graphic designer I admit the shape of the P is killing me.)
I am totally into these colorful party cannons filled with confetti made out of wildflower seeds.
Oh, this is an elegant design of an LED ‘candle’. (I wish they showed it when not on!)
These Reusable Zip Tops look really useful. Basically a more sturdy version of a Zip Loc bag but that stand up on their own and you can wash and reuse. I am here for it.
I have a small obsession: Hollow Book Safes. There is something beautifully intriguing about hidden secret book compartments. I don’t really understand the amount of joy this brings me. But here we are. Book Rooks over on Etsy has a beautiful collection to chose from.
Infinite Objects is pure magic: They make video prints.
You can now have your favorite short video, or your favorite GIF as an art object in your home, looping forever.
I love GIFs! I love art! I love Infinite Objects.
You can chose from the existing editions, or you can make your own. The content itself can be anywhere from a few seconds to 24 hours! But as soon as it ends, it will loop again. (The battery lasts about two hours, so best to keep it plugged in.)
What a fun gift!
(I got my favorite GIF on one of them and it’s making me laugh every day. Perfectly sums up 2020!)
The Million Mile Light is a battery-free safety light for runners and joggers that’s powered by motion and engineered to never give up. Brilliant.
I love this Avocado Vase. (At the rate I am going my apartment is going to morph into an Avocado forest soon.)
I remember last year, when I had lunch with the wonderfully thoughtful and talented Max Guwanan, who’s aesthetic I deeply admire, and he showed me his latest product prototype. I at first wasn’t sure what I was looking at and he proceeded to explain it’s a light but also a speaker. Fast forward to this week, where he launched Teno, a new kind of speaker and a new kind of light. And most of all, a beautifully sculptural object. Congrats Max, you did it again. First Lumio, now Teno.
The world needs more poetic humans like Tom Lawton. He is the creator of Uplift, a solar-powered sculpture designed to soothe the soul that’s made from waste fishing nets.
