comme des garcons opened a guerilla store in downtown la today! i was working in retail when their first guerilla store opened and i remember reading this article. i adore the graphics on this perfume bottle!
i was reminded of this chair by the nytimes coverage of maison et objet. it would be so fun to pick the books to fill it! designed by nobody & co, the collaboration of a art director and a copy editor "who have decided to venture in the coloured, substantial and three dimensional world of design." how great would it be in a lobby?
maybe it is because i am so tired and grouchy tonight that these simple things from canoe are making me happy. i want to order some awesome japanese notebooks by postalco, i love our chemex and that bottle opener looks like it will get my beer open right quick, because honestly, crying and throwing the cheap bottle opening is not something i want to repeat.
i absolutely love this clock by icelandic designer thorunn arnadottir that was featured in the nytimes article "the slow life picks up speed". each bead represents five minutes with a red bead every hour, a gold bead for noon and a silver one for midnight.
not only is it beautiful and functional but if you don't want to be bogged down by time you can wear it as a necklace instead!
