Baby Bowl and Spoon Creatures

Baby Bowl and Spoon Creatures

Oh kawaii! Super cute! These are made for any baby that’s on the top of cute, in the head of tableware fashion! It’s the Easy Meal product line from Chicco! Designed by Continuum to be an integral part of a baby’s journey toward independence and youngpersonhood. This project includes a series of plates and cutlery based on fanciful imagery made to work between parent and child during the whole meal ordeal. Whatever works, I am sure you parents are always saying…

Sugar Pot Honey Pot

Sugar Pot Honey Pot

Designer Johanna Hartzheim here explores in two kitchen items my favorite thing in the whole world: Simplicity. We’ve got here (as the title suggests) a sugar pot and a honey pot, pot and pot. Exciting! Both items in question were explored as far as their context of usage, their situation at the dinner table, and their formal integration (the normal stuff such as materials, functions, and yes! Symbolism.)

Guessing Game Deuce

We have only this on YD once before, right now we’re gonna go ahead and play the GUESSING GAME again, RIGHT NOW!

Just by looking at this Pre-Picture can you guess what the item is? The explanation is in the Permalink, but be honest with yourself and tell me what exactly did you think this was?

A New Dimension To Tea Drinking

A New Dimension To Tea Drinking

I never really understood the elaborate ritual of brewing the perfect cup of tea. Maybe I’m uncivilized and vulgar to assume that you simply need to boil the leaves in hot water, add milk and sugar, and you’re done. Ok you snooty people stop cringing… do it your way with the Dione Tea Set. Described as a set of teacups with two hemispheres and a thin net preventing the tea leaves from entering the cup and involving some 180 degrees of rotation, the fuss is about keeping the aroma of the tea leaves alive.

Oh I see you! Peek!

Oh I see you! Peek!

Such a lovely object, this little thing. Yes indeedy. Just the thing I need to put up there with all of my other lovely things, all sitting there in a row. But what’s it’s function, this mystifying object? Well let me take you on a mysterious journey! A journey into the unknown! The “PEEK!”

Roasting Marshmallows In The Vulcan

Roasting Marshmallows In The Vulcan

Citing space-crunch as a major issue with matchbox homes, the Vulcan Stove Fireplace adapts itself to this reason, but that alone should not be the criteria for liking it. A warm fireplace but totally utilitarian, it hosts numerous shelves for your things and has the potential to be the focal point of your living space. In practical times as these, where electric heaters and radiators vie for equal attention; a warm, cozy, functional fireplace as this makes me all mushy and crave winter.

So you say you need a portable x-ray machine. Well. Let me tell you about this particular one. It’s called “RAY”, it’s designed by Cavallius Design group, and it’s just so very compact.

Illy Stays Chilly

Illy Stays Chilly

Drinking an espresso has never become more and more enjoyable as time goes on for you, has it? The first, second, and third sips are always the best because eventually your ice cubes melt. Then there is the dreaded: diluted drink! But wow have I got a doozy to be showing you. You know it’s the icecube’s fault that the drink got all watery. So it’s time to change the icecube. Presenting the espresso ice machine for Illy brand! Oh so lovely.

Don’t Fear The Middle Seat

Don’t Fear The Middle Seat

The seat diners dread the most is the uncomfortable center place, right where two tables join. Murphy’s Law comes into action and invariably one table is slightly taller than the other, causing an up-down situation! With the dedicated Plate For People Who Sit Between Two Tables, I’m sure we can tackle the awkward scene, and just for the novelty of eating off this cool plate, I’m willing to sit in the middle!

Dancing Vases

Dancing Vases

I like these vases. They are an exploration of the latest laser sintering technology and illicit childhood memories of spinning tops. Each of the 5 vases is a snapshot of a top from the point of spin to a wobbling stand still. I love the design and what it stands for. They’re currently on exhibition at the London Design Festival but I’m crossing my fingers that these will go into production.

Glasses That Don’t Tipple

Glasses That Don’t Tipple

Downing those umpteen shots of Vodka or Tequila, you may tipple over my friend, but these Cordial Glasses won’t topple! Tipple-Topple; get it? Tip-less Cordial Glasses are clever coz they got an indent at their bottom that fit snugly into the bobs in their ceramic tray. Six glasses to a tray that won’t tip, but if you drop ‘em, they do go crash!
