When Sound Met Style - Wood Earphones and Headphones by Meze

When Sound Met Style – Wood Earphones and Headphones by Meze

One of the reasons why I love what I do is reporting on stories that start from humble roots and grow on to immense fame. One such story is that of Romanian designer of Antonio Meze. The idea of designing classy earphones aside, his vision of creating a meaningful product that can be passed down to generations, has completely resonated with me. With launch of his brand’s new Meze 11 DECO Earbuds around the bend (8th December), I managed to get us a sneak peek, and of course chatted him up for some interesting bytes.

Bruce Lee And His Cards

Bruce Lee And His Cards

“The meaning of life is that it has to be lived.” How true! And full marks for guessing the author of this quote – Bruce Lee. Known as the most influential martial-arts artists of all time, Lee was single-handedly responsible for breaking the stereotype of Asians in Hollywood movies. Commemorating his 73rd birthday today, the visionaries in the art of magic and cardistry, Dan and Dave, are out with a dedicated Bruce Lee Playing Cards Deck. All the cards feature an inspiring Bruce Lee quote, except for the Aces.

321 Water Filtering Bottle Review

321 Water Filtering Bottle Review

Some months ago I was sent a 321 Water bottle with a note from one of YD’s staff – “this was in the Hunger Games movie!” And it’s true. The bottle was featured in the control room scene of said movie so I thought hey, if it’s good enough for those dystopian dictators with amazing fashion sense, then it’s good enough for me. Hit the jump for the review.

A Hook With A Handy Peg

A Hook With A Handy Peg

They’re called Jpegs. No, not the image compression format. It’s a new product from Thabto designed by Jason Caswell. True to form, Jason designs yet another product that’s utterly useful with a sense of humor. The wood coat hooks have handy pegs you can clip mail, photos, and notes too. Each hook has super strong magnets if you prefer to use them on a fridge instead of wall. Get a set of 3 for £12. Love it!

Reclaimed Wood For A Better Watch

Reclaimed Wood For A Better Watch

“The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now.” I love this tagline and the simple truth behind it. Essentially this is a direct lift from WeWOOD Watches and they are compelling me to think about what I can do for my planet, even if it’s through Product Design. Sure, haute horology is something everyone craves, but how many can truly say that what they are wearing is something that reminds us of a tree’s powerful way of life; rooted, yet reaching.

Ceramics We Love

Ceramics We Love

Dressing Up The MacBook

Dressing Up The MacBook

The thing with buying Apple products is that you can’t dress them up in just any old accessories. Whatever you use has to be of top-notch quality, befitting the Jobs legacy. For example, the new MacBook Pro with its shimmy new features deserves a sleeve from the Carga Sleeve Collection. Basically these hand-assembled sleeves are done in small batches using single-piece vegetable tanned leather. Elastic and leather closures add a dash of panache.

With Click & Grow Everyone Can Become A Gardener

When Click & Grow became a part of the YD Roadshow in Chennai, I was both ecstatic and weary. Ecstatic that YD will be showcasing such an innovative product and weary that I was to nurture and grow the plant for the event. A beautiful Basil and Cockscomb smartpot arrived at my doorstep and I got started almost immediately. I’ll skip the details on how-to-grow, as it is explained adeptly in the video after the jump and get to more about the experience of growing my first plant ever!
