So when you think of Sweden you think of pine trees, snow and sauna’s! Well these saunas and the companies hottubs look so cute with that all the wood. We saw these at a home show in Goteborg late last year and really like them, they were a bit too heavy to carry out the […]

KEEPING IT POLISHED

19 May 2011 by Matthew

A while ago Lisa did a post about the nail polishes of Scotch Naturals and while searching for Japanese design I came across Nendo’s branding of the Three cosmetics. What I like is that depending on if its make up or other products Nendo have kept the same look but with a slight difference in […]

Not sure why I have this sudden urge to look at so much furniture design, maybe I just like sitting comfortably or maybe its the recent Milan show but it always astounds me how many people have just the normal sofa at home when there are so many good interesting products, scared maybe, too lazy […]

So do you remember the computer games Frogger and PacMan well this table from Atomare really reminds me of the two games, from the bright green to the big open mouth, maybe its the table version of Kermit the Frog!! The Ogo is covered in rubber so would have an interesting feel compared to what […]

Antrepo made this interesting take on the salt and pepper shaker, a couple of batteries. Well they are the right size and shape and instead of the power bar you get on some you can view in and see how much salt, or peper, you have left. The picture above shows the black and white […]

LIVING ON THE EDGY

14 May 2011 by Matthew

So yesterday I posted about one of the two trends I have spotted cropping up in design, natural, and today its almost the opposite with fractural design. Remember those 80′s graphics of fractural number algorithms continuously changing on the screen. This theme reminds me of that and is almost the opposite of the natural design […]

NATURAL IS BEST

Following all the looking around at designs at the moment it seems that there are two very different trends happening the first is natural, which is what this post is about, and the second is edgy or fractural which I will show you tomorrow. Natural design comes from the efficient use of material, look at […]

3D printing seems to be in more and more design and this latest idea from blablabLab from Barcelona proves that point. It allows you, or a group of you, to get a model made there and then, in about 15mins really, as souvenir’s. What happens is that you do your pose and they scan you, this […]

MAP OF MY BRAIN

3 May 2011 by Lisa

That title might sounds a little odd but bare with me and you’ll get the idea behind it. It all started when I began thinking about all the different places we’ve been and lived in. From there I started thinking about how we got around each different place, which lead me to think how important […]

SOCIAL FUN OR STALKER PLAYGROUND

28 April 2011 by Lisa

We have seen, heard and used social media sites like facebook and twitter to keep friends, family, business partners and customers up to date in our daily world, but when does social media go to far and become a breding ground for stalkers? While not wanting to sound like an old lady, I do remember […]

Don’t you hate it when you come across a quirky company with some very cool products but you can’t think of a catchy title to go along with your post? Thankfully their name is pretty cool as  is so I don’t feel too bad and luckily you didn’t have to suffer some of the terrible […]
