Everchanging Wallnado

Everchanging Wallnado

That’s another name for this product that I just made up! I mean the name, that is, this concept was designed by the incomparable Amirko, and it’s real name is “Change It!” Ohh scoop it! It’s one big wall of turn-triangles. Each of these triangles has different colors on them – white – black – and a slightly unique rainbow shade. As you can see in the first picture here, when the color is on full blast, it makes a mural all it’s own.

Lights Are Upon You

Lights Are Upon You

Go on, brush your shoulders off. You’d better be clean when those big ol’ stage lights get a’blarin on you. Those barn doors are wide open, and you’re sweating bullets! But these aren’t them, no! We’re talking about something different. These are the beautiful, home version of lights used for stage plays or photography. These are called “Lutz” lights, or die scheinwerfer! And they’re coming to a home studio near you!

Squids and Seashells For My Faucet

Squids and Seashells For My Faucet

I know this sounds very funny but what can I say… the aQuatica Faucet has been inspired by sea creatures. Honestly, it does resemble a mini sculpture when not in use and expands elaborately to become this work-of-art faucet. A dramatic departure from the drab ones we see off the shelf, but I promise you…the cleaning lady’s not gonna like cleaning this!

Hanging Books Are My Buddies

Hanging Books Are My Buddies

I’m very possessive about the books I own and very rarely lend them. I’d much rather display them on a bookshelf them hide them in cupboards. The Slim Book Case fits in perfect to any home or office environment and suits those who love exhibiting their collection. Sounds perfect for me! Adding a unique touch to your wall décor, the only flip side is that in the Slim version you can show off only 10-12 books (in 8 slots) at a time and the Demi Slim holds only 4-6 books (in the 4 slots).

Printing With A Pencil Stub

Printing With A Pencil Stub

So you don’t want to join  pencil stubs and make a long pencil. No worries, we have another alternative, how about using them to print on paper. Yes, like a printer that uses pencil to print your documents. Traditional don’t you think? I feel the concept gets even more radical because it proposes the use of eraser to erase off mistakes! Do I hear my office scream in delight; no more cartridge woes!
