Via DesignFlute, I found out about designer screen printed solar cells. ‘Instead of mounting the solar module on the roof, it could be integrated in the glass façade of a building. It is possible to produce it in desired colours, print images or text on the module.’

Ann Sacks

August 20, 2008

I was exploring what was under my rugs the other day and was quite disappointed to find that there is not hardwood in my foyer. Then I came upon this picture of a gorgeously tiled entry, and now I’d love to see my foyer tiled.

I don’t have the patience for that mosiac and was on LotusHaus today and saw a tile by Ann Sacks that might do the job quite nicely if it wasn’t so expensive! I’d like the black and white zigzag paccha for the foyer but liked the others as well.

Wireless Earphones

August 12, 2008

I have a pair of wireless earphones, but they are the kind that wrap around the back of my head and I kind of hate them. I’d much prefer this pair which look to be similiar to ear buds and they are a lot cheaper than the pair I currently have….if only I had known…

Convertible Compact Desk

August 11, 2008

This compact desk from Crate & Barrel ‘looks like a 30″ cabinet but converts to a 55″ full-size desk, making it a clever solution for studio apartments and multipurpose rooms. A quick slide of its top panel reveals hard-working amenities. When open, the top of the cabinet reveals generous storage space for a laptop, plus cubbies with removable dividers to stow paper clips, rubber bands and other smalls. Cord cutouts in back let you charge iPods, laptop and cell phones. Below are a storage drawer and one letter- and legal-size file.’

The Perdur lid to this tape dispenser by Norman Foster pushed the tape up for use. When removed, the tape sinks down, allowing the box to be covered by the lid.

‘You can open it the Balancing Act Waste Bin by Eva Solo from any point around the rim and the lid is designed so that when it’s flipped up, it balances on the rim until you tip it closed. It’s a little bit magic and kind of makes throwing trash away fun.’

I’d seen the round over the balcony planters awhile ago but wasn’t taken with them enough to post them. Now I see they have a square and rectanglar version that I like a lot better.

Wood Placemats

August 5, 2008

So I posted the Wood Coasters the other day and saw that the same site sold Wood Placements. I liked the coasters better and didn’t think about the placemats again until I saw a post on Apartment Therapy showing them used as a window treatment.

AT lists the source of the wood placemats as Hygge, however the ones I found are by Sarah Finn and they look very similiar to me.

Mood Bracelet

August 5, 2008

I’m not sure if this is a mood bracelet in the typical American sense, similar to a mood ring, but I’d like it even more if it was.

Mood is a dashing bracelet plaited with nylon, designed and handmade in Denmark by designer Nané Køllgaard. Available in red, transparent and black.

‘Sarah Finn brings her architectural sensibility and woodworkers skills to the humble coaster, playing with flowers and patterns to create this coaster set. Laser cut and stained, these dark chunks of ornamented wood provide a base for the libation of your choice. Sturdy (even though they look delicate), and wipeable. Set of 8 (two of each design).’

Space Grill

August 1, 2008

The unique, swing-out grill system comprises of two heavy-gauge stainless steel grills that height-adjust for different cooking temps. On the top grill, sit a serving dish, a saucepan or use as a back-up cooking or warming grill. The larger main grill swings out to enable quick fuel top-ups. Underneath the bowl is an integral ash collector and adjustable ventilation system. It also has an eco-friendly bamboo chopping board and built-in hooks for tools.
