Chip by a Swedish brand Minus tio is a stylish yet modest coat rack, that has everything you need from a coat rack in a hallway, but without the fuss. It has a shelf-basket inspired by the traditional Swedish chip basket they use when picking mushrooms.

Their products reflect Scandinavian aesthetic and heritage and are thought thru to the final detail.

I like the simple things in life. And this coat rack is just that. Simple but it does it’s job. And that’s it. Beautiful, right?

These pins are adorable. Tokyo based Duncan Shotton Design Studio wants to bring a bit of outer space to our homes and I think it’s a cute idea.

But what else can one say about a push-pin? Well these pins are actually little works of art. For each pin they mold the shape of the planet and then they’re painted by hand. Once painted, the pins are assembled in their display cases, which are also serial numbered. And that’s impressive, for someone to put so much work into a few tiny pins.

I sincerely hope this is a joke. A bluetooth enabled salt shaker that plays music plus you can use it for mood lighting. Again – I sincerely hope this is a joke. A California-based “lifestyle” company called Herb & Body (apparently without a website) wants to finance the insane product through Indiegogo crowdfunding platform from June 15 on.

Some googling dug up an old PR document from 2015 which describes the same product from the same company but with some more sane (not by much) specs. It was supposed to be the worlds first digital salt dispenser. It was supposed to help consumers measure, track and control their salt consumption. A couple of years later they apparently decided to up the ante with a speaker and some LEDs.

Coming soon. Price tag as well.

We thought vinyl records were dead at one point and boy were we wrong. A Lithuanian company called BrainMonk is apparently betting on the same thing happening with audio cassettes. They might be on to something, since according to Billboard cassette album sales in the United States increased by 74% in 2016.  Wow is all I can say to that. I sincerely doubt it but you can’t really argue with the design concept of Elbow – it looks great and even kind of cool.

I’d buy it. I don’t know what I’d use it for since most of my cassette collection is likely ripe for trash right now. But I’d buy it.

Nox is a portable luminaire by Zurich-based designer Alfredo Häberli for a Danish brand Astep. This simple night lamp looks almost too simple, but it has an advantage. It has a wireless charging system with induction technology, so you can use it unplugged. You can carry it around wherever you need light both indoors and outdoors. It’s touch dimmer makes the Nox light versatile. It offers anything from a cozy soft light at a dinner party or a brighter light for reading. And that’s it. Do you need more from a lamp? I don’t think so.

You probably know the no-brand design of Muji and you probably know that the products it makes come in all varieties and sizes. From stationary and clothes to kitchen appliances and at one point even a car. Well you can now add a prefabricated house to that list. True to form the Muji Hut is both minimal and stylish and can be yours for a mere €25,000 complete with construction at the location of your choosing. That is of course as long as you live in Japan. Bummer.

P.S.: Not really sure what the toilet situation is. It looks like you’re going to have to put the hut near some bushes…

I’m such a sucker for little designer thingies, for the home, like plates, bowls and all sorts of vases… The desire to own such an object usually grows with the fact that I don’t need it. The less I need it the more I want it. Of course.

I found Elephant Ceramics, quite some time ago and I fell in love with its shapes and colours. The person behind the brand is Michele Michael, a table top prop stylist, who started creating ceramics when she couldn’t find the pieces she needed. The textured organic shapes, artistically painted and glazed are just the thing I don’t need, but would be so happy if I had some of them. And it’s kind of a good thing that everything in her shop is sold out. For now…
