Deep Celestial Time

Deep Celestial Time

As we all know, Nadir is the deepest point on a celestial sphere directly beneath a surface position. It indicates the profoundest depth which lies below. Inspired by this concept, we have the Nadir watch, a timepiece that never strays from the symbolic “core” of time itself. Time is the Nadir; this unisex watch measures 40 mm in diameter has a unique way of telling the time.

Phased By The Moon

Phased By The Moon

Inspired by the moon, the Lunaround watch features the “luna” or moon shaped hour hand that rotates one complete cycle every 12 hours. Measuring a comfortable 40 mm in diameter, the watch also hosts a red minutes and second hands. It is kinda fascinating to observe how within the center of the moon (hour hand), the hour digits can be seen moving. Awesome ‘moon’ sighting on the wrist!

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.

Globetrotting From Home

Globetrotting From Home

My first introduction to the world of maps was this magnificent wooden globe, placed in my father’s office. The times when it became impossible to understand the trade-winds route or memorize the landmarks and seas, I’d turn to this globe for help and learn it all up in a jiffy. Times have changed now and affording one of those antique globes is just a far fetched dream. However a contemporary and kitsch take on the maps is here in the form of the Color Maps. They come in four sweet themes: Midnight, Chocolate, City Lights and Pop Color Maps.

Destroying Violence Through Peace

Destroying Violence Through Peace

The grenade, revolver and the nunchucks are instruments of violence and destruction. Playing on the maxim of the pen being mightier than the sword, a selection of notebooks bearing this symbolic gesture encourages us to convert violence to a tool of peace. Our creativity and knowledge expressed through words and sketches are the best means to get our points across, not through force and/or violence.

The Keyboards And Coasters Story

The Keyboards And Coasters Story

The first thing that I added to my workstation, when I became a serious online writer, was a set of coasters. Coffee mugs, water bottle and last minute sandwich plates have a knack of leaving a stain and messing up a perfectly clean table-top. Hence to maintain the sanctity of my sacred space, a coaster became a must. If you are as finicky about keeping your desk as spotless as me, then the Keyboard Coasters is a quirky solution that I recommend. Perhaps it’s that geek-quotient of keyboard design that is striking, nevertheless, it’s worth a try.

Backup Power Portable

Backup Power Portable

I consider apps as a necessary evil, I need them to be productive and at the same time they drain my iPhone at the most unexpected times. A power backup or portable recharger has become a compulsion for people like me. However design sensibilities often keep me away from dodgy chargers that juice up the iPhone and iPod but at the cost of ugly looks. When I spied the clever Plug Battery Charger, I was totally tickled by its take on the plug! Sweet!
