Awesome Sh*t You Can Buy.


Untitled-1

So I don’t normally plug retail sites, (unless I’m getting paid to) however, I came across a site looking for some wedding gifts for a friend, and I have to shout its praises from the rooftops.  The site ‘Awesome Sh*t You Can Buy’ has quite the selection of random, astonishing, and rare items.  For example… the Batmobile (not joking), things like a Facebook shower curtain, all black playing cards, or even a bullet proof business suit.  For sure take a browse, and you’ll find something you’ll like.  Below are just a small handful of some of the random sh*t you CAN buy.  Check the method.

Your House Is On Fire… What Do You Take?


It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question. With nearly 250 submissions and growing each day, the Burning House is a truly fascinating project.  Check some examples out below.

The Shape Of Things To Come.


Curves are the new black when it comes to industrial design. From the elongated drop silhouette of Apple’s Macbook AIR laptop computer, to the very sexy swooping lines of the Fisker “Karma” Hybrid Sports Car.  From time to time, my staff will sometimes run across objects of desire that are truly intriguing by design but confusing when it comes to function. This collection of leather home accessories by Jerome Olivet for French home furnisher Roche Bobois, is a perfect example of this. From what we could gather we have a photo-frame, a basket, a magazine rack, a laptop surface?, a charger plate?, a vase? and a flux capacitor? Whatever they are intended to function as, they are certainly beautifully designed with luscious gradient curves begging to be touched. I suppose that when objects look this good, they don’t really need an obvious function.
