Zizmor Residence

March 12, 2009

As I’ve posted before I have this thing for horizontal wood fences, screens, etc. So one glance at Brad Zizmor’s  gorgeous deck off his small New York City apartment and I’m completely smitten. Zizmor is an architect with a + i architecture in NYC and recently had his apartment renovation written about in Dwell Magazine.

If your like me you have multiple bottle openers. Thrown in drawers, stuck to your frig, one on my key chain, I even have one that is shaped like a credit card to fit in my wallet. Yet this Carved Wood Elephant Bottle Opener makes me want what I obviously don’t need (which is usually the case).

Davone Speakers

‘Using specialised wood moulding technology, Davone is able to make a fluid shaped cabinet with acoustic properties that surpass the normal square box format.’


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.

Wood Laser-Cut Coasters

August 4, 2008

‘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).’

Wood + Silver Cuffs

August 4, 2008

I’ve posted about wood cuffs before but I like designer Tadd Sackville’s take on them. Sackville of West of Cero Designs has lined these stunning wood veneer cuffs in sterling silver, and they come in multiple colors.

Clamping Strip

July 17, 2008

I just came upon Christian Lessing’s ‘Clamping Strip’. I don’t know if it can be purchased but I loved the idea of using it for the trim around a door to provide hidden storage.

Ship Wood Bench

July 3, 2008

This bench at VivaTerra, is “hand-wrought from a no-longer sailing vessel. With a patina that radiates softly like thick layers of satin, while its aged density and strength give it a nobility all its own.”

A simple cast shadow produces elegant results in this line of lighting fixtures. Organic graphic patterns combine with the wooden texture to produce a modern wilderness.

Plya Collar

June 9, 2008

Here is a different take on your usual necklace, the Plya Collar by Studio 1am

Plya Collar

Old distressed wood carpentered to a reliably useful and comforting balance. A bit like us: life inherently distresses us, we try to work it out to an eventual peaceful balance. Maybe reminders like the table will hasten the peace.

I really like the “Rough Measure” concept for clothing. He wants to make items of clothing can have a function in the workshop.

The Block Table lamp has a gorgeous brown coneshaped mangowood foot. These lamps are made by hand hence no lamps are alike.
