Plumen x Boskke and I Missed It!

Plumen x Boskke and I Missed It!

What the hell man! How did I miss the Plumen x Boskke Chandelier during London Design week way back in September? I must have hit one too many cups of NyQuil because I should have been there. The pictures from the London Shoreditch Station look so damn cool. Seriously, I want a coffee shop or tea shop equipped with free wifi, comfy seating, and these chandeliers. I also just found out these are the smaller and uber cute mini Plumen bulbs. MUST HAVE AND DO WANT! Did any of you see it in person?

Kokeshi Inspired Lamp

Kokeshi Inspired Lamp

My recent trip to Japan re-energized my creative energies. The land of the rising sun epitomizes the dichotomy of the kind of design I favor; the whimsical and minimal. The clean design aesthetic you normally associate with Scandinavia is mixed with tradition in a way that’s uniquely Japanese. The Doll lamp by Foscarini reminds me of this confluence. Inspired by Japanese kokeshi dolls, the Doll lamp is minimalist in the strictest sense besides coming in four colors (red, green, ivory, grey). The kind of whimsical minimalism I was talking about.

Contact Case from Heaven

Contact Case from Heaven

If you’re like me & cursed with bad vision, then you know how irritating it can be to constantly deal with your contacts. You gotta have the solution, the case, the glasses… KILLING! The Lens Safe case offers a little relief by combining all of the necessary elements into one compact unit (in a variety of colors!) that’s more stylish and functional than the boring medical style cases.  Solution is stored between the R and L lens containers so you’re never left dry!

New Kinda Spy Cam

New Kinda Spy Cam

The Zipper is a flying indoor camera and recording device that can be used in a number of scenarios. The device uses the principle of gas balloons and combines it with the wit of propellers driven by a precision electric motor. Basically the hovering camera moves around a room very fast and silently and doesn’t consume much energy.

Everyday Is A Sun Day

Everyday Is A Sun Day

The law of attraction states that whatever vibrations you send out, the universe reciprocates by sending back similar-vibration experiences. Which is why if you start your day with a bright new thought or a gifting smile, then your entire day goes ahead as planned and full of fun. The Sun Rising Lamp is an ode to this sentiment. Why wait for the New Year sunrise to make your resolutions? Look at the Sun Rising Lamp as your daily dose of insightful inspiration.

Flat Out Electronics

Flat Out Electronics

Modern technology enables us to make some incredibly thin products, still big on features with a natural inclination towards minimalism. That’s the idea behind a series of products called Flatronics by designer Glen Liberman. The first group of products called Peg is inspired by the simple idea of tools hung on a nail peg. The second group of products called Silhouette is inspired by the striking outlines of an object, distilled to its most simplest and iconic form.

Public bicycles made massively minimal

Public bicycles made massively minimal

The folks at multidisciplinary office AND-RÉ and the city of Vilamoura worked to create the project you’re seeing here – a lovely public bicycle project! This project is just the newest of a set of collaborations the city has done with the design group known as AND-RÉ and aims to continue their forward-thinking philosophy of “humanization of urban space” – this “returning the city to [the] people.”

Twist On The Task Light

Twist On The Task Light

Love me some good task lighting y’all. The trends may be LED’s but few do anything about the harsh lights those little diodes put out. The Leva task lamp by architect Massimo los Ghini uses an unconventional diffuser mape of opal white poly. The light is softly distributed but you still get a sense of those diodes as glowing orbs. The lamp structure itself is finished in gorgeous beech wood with steel components. Combine all that with an articulating arm and you’ve got one sexy ass task lamp.
