Charlie Pyott

Friday, July 31st, 2009


As the owner of  two big, clunky record players, Charlie Pyott’s Linos portable player seems like a dream come true.  Though it’s still in prototype phase, how could an idea this clever not come to fruition?

Beautiful cutlery set made by Clara del Portillo and Alejandro Selma for designboom’s Beyond Silver competition.  Love the combination of warm woods with silver tops.

Ben Huggins

Just came across the work of Ben Huggins, a member of New British Design.  I love his series of ‘Brace’ tables and chairs,which reveal their internal structure along with the ‘Together’ chair below.

Pablo Reinoso

Just came across this series of ‘Spaghetti’ benches by Pablo Reinoso where the wooden slats grow and take on a life of their own.  Interestingly enough, these are listed under the art, not design, section of his website – I would have done the reverse.  Ah well, to each their own.


PKN Denver

Friday, July 24th, 2009


Thanks to everyone who took part in Denver’s 6th PechaKucha Night.  We had over 300 people attend the outdoor event on Tuesday.  It was a great final PKN for me, will miss the coordinating the madness with Angela, but they seem to just keep getting better.  First round of pics are up on the website, more coming soon.

The Swiss Army Knife Shelf, designed by Ivan Hernandez Quintela and Juan Zouain, has pieces that flip out for different uses; including clothes hooks, coin slots, built-in notepads and mirrors.

Ryan Sorrell, a graduate of Kingston University, (where I’ll be heading in the fall), designed the ‘Clamp’ table with simplicity in mind.  The legs are universal and can be used to create a table out of any available flat surface.

Danish designer Cecilie Manz described her ‘Pluralis’ seat as, “a chair composition for three persons.”  Seating for three or a built in side table.


5.5 Maslow

Thursday, July 16th, 2009


Simple storage from 5.5 Design.  Based on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, the shelves came from the idea that “it is smarter to storage small things in small volumes and largest things in big volumes.”  Can be stacked in various configurations.

Knitted lights by German design studio Ilot Ilov. The ‘Matt’ lamps come with long wrapped cords, which are meant to be moved around for different uses.
