The Concrete Rollerball Pen

…..and Sketch Pencil. This concrete rollerball pen & sketch pencil from 22 Studio Design has ridges that will start to disintegrate as you use it, conforming to your grip. Plus… they’re made entirely out of concrete. How much cooler of a pen or pencil do you need?

Eating tools :)

Jacques-elie Ribeyron specialises in over-the-top excessively luxurious tools for simple tasks, elevating cheese cutting and chocolate breaking to new ritualistic highs. Natural polished and black pvd titanium with cow skin for the sleeve. #LUSH!

Beats Pencil & A NotePad.

The ultimate use of colour & sound.

I stand corrected.

After spending a full day at the Damien Hirst exhitibion, I’ve developed a new found love for the artist and truly stand corrected. Maybe his fascination with life/death, science/religion is not so oddly placed. Tate Modern April 4th – Sept 9th – must see!

Tell It Your Way: Porcelain Revised Score


Mid 2011 Award-winning short film Director/producer Ridley Scott launched a global filmmaking competition dubbed “Tell It Your Way” following its Cannes Lions award-winning short-film project “Parallel Lines.” The entrants were given freedom of expression and could take up any theme they wanted. There were two strict rules, the dialogue was to be precisely six-lines (as it was in the ‘Parallel Lines’ films), and entries could not exceed three minutes ~ The award-winning short film was Porcelain Revised Score. So incredibly beautiful.

Fresh Impressions.


I see design in her future for sure! Adam Ladd’s daughter on brand logos.

Interactive Starry Night

A try to visualize the flow of the famous painting “Starry Night” of Vincent Van Gogh. The user can interact with the animation. Also, the sound responds to the flow. Made with openframeworks.

Mophie outdoor | My new biking & hiking companion ;)

This is for my nature loving people for we definitely will feel this most keenly. The Mophie Outdoor battery for the iPhone 4/S is without a doubt the best money spent on an iPhone since getting the iPhone. As a lover of the great outdoors, extra battery life is manna from heaven. Additionally, the GPS & mapping features are incredible and do not require a cell phone signal as it keeps tracking and recording position even when you lose signal (I really wish I had designed it). The other bonus is it’s not just a bike or hike specific product, can be used everyday. The battery case itself (either the Outdoor or the identical Juice Pack Plus) is good for about a full iPhone charge, says Mophie, and should come in handy out in the boonies.

Simply Delicious.

Merry Christmas :)

Neat! The guys at Dentsu London created a hand-made ‘conductive ink’ Christmas card by way of spreading cheer.
The card lights up when you complete the circuit (made me smile) I really love it.

Chihuly

I’ve been a fan of Dale Chihuly for a while now, so felt incredibly lucky to be at his exhibition this weekend, I was awed from beginning to end. As a pioneer, he has single-handedly revolutionized the art of blown glass, moving it into the realm of large-scale sculpture. In establishing the use of glass in this way, inherently ‘a fragile but also magical material’ Dale, created a vehicle for installations and environmental art projects that can stand the hands of time.

He’s really a little wonderful.

The chains that bind humanity

Young-Deok Seo makes a statement about the repetitive, monotonous, machine-like way we often walk through life. Using chains the Seoul based artist welds figurative sculptures that are purposefully unfinished as a way to express the “incomplete nature of modern day humans”. Amaaaaaaaaaaaaazing!
