Clustered Lighting

Clustered Lighting

Though at first glance it looks like a singular unit, the Square Bell hanging pendant is actually 5 lamps in 1. Smaller, pyramid-shaped shades surround a larger central shade, creating a functional cluster that is at once united and separate. The unique placement and angle of each individual shade casts expansive directional illumination, making it an ideal choice for lighting larger spaces.

There have been plenty of metal, magnet, wall-mounted designs- so why not design a set for the ones people like me use most? Well now there is! Gigodesign’s Woodware series is the most modern & sleek use of natural wood in a utensil I’ve seen. The fork, spoon & spatula are easily kept handy with embedded magnets that can be attached to the wall mount or any other metal surface.

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.

A Different Kind of Anti-Theft

When it comes to bicycle theft, the saying remains true- “if they want it bad enough, they’ll take it.” The designers at Cycling Boom believe bigger chains and bulky locks are just one solution to deterring theft, which is why they’ve created a unique tag system that is effective in a different way. These discrete metal tags can be placed anywhere on the bike and feature a custom identification number that can be looked up in an online universal registry system.

One Stealthy Little Tender

One Stealthy Little Tender

The 7 meter D23 tender was designed with elegance in mind, focusing on simple lines & angular shapes that add to both its style & hydrodynamics. The D23′s standard teak deck, fender-style seats, carbon fiber details, & complete customizability are appealing, but the paramount innovation is the unique placement of the 175HP engine which provides the benefits of an outboard with the aesthetic & spatial advantages of an inboard made possible by a thoughtful combination of the boat’s volumes and proportions.

Glowin' Garlic

Glowin’ Garlic

The Garlic Lamp (as you might have guessed by the moniker) is a simple and literal interpretation of its namesake. The shape of the pungent bulb actually makes for a great pendant shade that produces downward directional lighting as well as an ambient glow through the translucent material. Ok, ok… so it’s not for everybody, but I can totally see it in an Italian restaurant or maybe a country kitchen!
