Alchemist Lamp

Alchemist Lamp

The Molting lamp’s unique arrangement of aluminum and walnut strips that make up its classically shaped shade create a visual eccentricity that appears to change with the viewers perspective. One moment it’s wood, another metal, and sometimes even an amalgamation of the two! The effect is exaggerated by the lined pattern of shadows created by the space between each strip.

Hoop Time

Hoop Time

The Hoop is a minimalist watch with a dial that sports partially obscured hands. A circle marks the hour and the minute’s hand is a simple design. Crafted mainly from white rubber, the watch is as stark as it gets. Personally I prefer the dash of colors used in the hands rather than the black or white versions.

Tricky for Fishies but Good for Us!

Tricky for Fishies but Good for Us!

Any successful fisherman knows that light is key in making a catch. That’s why so many lures are pretty and glittery, but in deep water they’re really no use as the light only penetrates just below the surface. Problem solved! The Solar Rapala lure harnessed the sun’s energy to power its shimmering LED light, making it not only more effective during daylight but the single best bait to use at night!

Ahoy Vey

Ahoy Vey

Visualize in your mind, for just a moment, a scarf blowing in the wind. Seriously, just do it!  Now look at the VEY yacht and you’ll instantly see the inspiration behind its sweeping, elegant form. The “wings” of this ultimate entertainer’s vessel are visually striking yet functional as they provide shelter from the elements at the aft. In contrast, the exposed bow is perfect for sunbathing, dining, dancing, or having your own Jack and Rose Titanic moment.

Industrial Elegance

Industrial Elegance

The WELDED Table, a Red Dot Design Award Best of the Best recipient, leaves little to be desired in both substance and aesthetic. The design is based around the use of a minimal amount of material and simplified construction process. The tridimensional shape of the legs is achieved with a near-invisble weld that gives it a sleek, refined look while providing structural strength. Loving it in neon!
