Design Matters: Malcolm Gladwell

In this Design Matters episode Malcolm Gladwell discusses his new book, “Talking to Strangers”—and how we default to truth … but not necessarily the whole truth.

No one does interviews better than Debbie Millman. No one.

A Beautiful Fire Extinguisher

A Japanese company that has been making firefighting equipment for almost 130 years, designed a minimal set of fire extinguishers to encourage people to keep one in their home. Love. Love. Love.

AirFly

This simple gadget called AirFly connects your AirPods to anything with a headphone jack. In my case, I wanted to be able to use my AirPods during an airplane ride. And it worked. Seamlessly. You could also use it at the gym. Or for your computer games. Well done, Twelve South.

Beautiful News Daily

Beautiful News Daily is a collection of good news, positive trends, uplifting statistics and facts — all beautifully visualized by Information is Beautiful. Celebrating amazing things happening in the world, thanks to human ingenuity, endeavour and collaboration. YES!

Fireproof Document Bag


I don’t know how I stumbled upon this Fireproof Document Bag, but here I am and I am impressed. It’s super good looking and protects your most important documents from water and fire damage.

This Could Be Our Future

Yancey Strickler wrote a book and I can not wait to read it. The book’s main message is speaking to my heart, showing a vision for building a society that looks beyond money and toward maximizing the values that make life worth living. YES!

Drink Rocks


Oh, I love these Drink Rocks. They keep your spirits as they should be: undiluted. These shaped stones are designed to be chilled in your freezer before being admired in your evening cocktail.

Embroidered Beanie

Lingua Franca just launched Embroidered 100% Cashmere Beanies. Love these so much. If you’re not familiar with Lingua Franca, check out the sweaters. That’s how it all started. So good, right?

Zero Co

Super fun Kickstarter video with a smart product idea: Zero Co is aiming to help eliminate single use plastic by sending you refill pouches.

The octopus stroking his cheek is hilarious.

Feelings

Love this Feelings Hat by Adam JK.

Marc Morrone

What is this wild show? Did you grow up with this? I am completely amazed.

Exhale Supernova Tote

Dear world,
I have fallen in love with the Exhale Supernova Tote by Hoi Bo.
I wanted you all to know.
Ok, bye!

This Made Me Laugh

Creature by Virgin Honey

This Is Glorious

One Foot At A Time

Really digging the message on these socks. I already own this version.

Meditation Cushion


Ok, these are some aesthetically pleasing meditation cushions.

Marco Polo Video Chat App

I just discovered the Marco Polo Video Chat App and I am intrigued. With my family and a lot of my friends living in different parts of the world, I often find it hard to stay in touch beyond just text and email. Marco Polo seems to have cracked this nut. You can talk/ aka record a video message when you’re on the go, between appointments, whenever it’s convenient for you. Your friend can watch in real time or later. Unlike other video apps, you don’t need to be live. It’s safe and private. So, that means, no likes, no comments. Dreamy!

The Invisible Dog Season 11

I have been a fan of what Lucien is building with the Invisible Dog since it launched 11 years ago. And for the last 4 years I have had the honor to give my companies a home inside the building that is named after his organization. If you love what Lucien does for the arts, the neighborhood of Boerum Hill and beyond, consider supporting his Kickstarter.

Shizuka Tatsuno Water Carafes

Absolutely stunning: Shizuka Tatsuno Water Carafe.

Cutting Mat Scarf in Black

Last November I wrote about the witty and beautiful Cutting Mat Scarf. It originally got launched in the cutting mat green, but now they issued a bunch of new colors. I just got my hands on a black version and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Invisible Jumpers
