Oh the lazy days of summer… While many of you are sweating from global warming and counting down the days till the iPhone 3G is set free, or maybe you have a life and are packing a bag for the long holiday weekend here in the US, I have nothing better to do than to deliver this weeks all important, randomly placed, weekly installment of YD’s Design Digest; A compendium of easily digestible design delights from around the inter-webs. This first week in July has some pretty hot items to gaze your wandering eyes on.
Item #1 is a good rule of thumb and pencil. The “Split Ruler” by Japanese designers Cina, is a ruler that neatly houses your pencil for getting things straight and holding your wood.
Item #2 will make you the life of the party at your next trip through airport security. “The Koffski” by Nina Voss is basically a Murse (man-purse) shaped like a gun holster in a vain attempt to butch up the fact that you are walking around with a MURSE!!!
Item #3 is located in the last place you want to be this hot summer, Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Trust me, I grew up right down the street in Miami and it is hot as balls during July and August. Luckily this new W Hotel by Clodagh is the coolest thing since Sonny Crocket.
Item #4 takes inspiration from an origami swan. Designer Damian Kozlik dreamed up this polypropylene chair named “Iga” features storage spaces in its arms, perfect for your stuff and other stuff.
