"One simple motto - 'Buy and use only what you really need and then get rid of it properly when you have finished with it' - could make a huge difference in helping to reduce the mountain of waste that is threatening to destroy our eco-system. As those responsible, in one way or another, for most of the products we purchase, designers bear a heavy responsibility...."~IdN



"Source tracks to re-releases of today ranging from the U.S. to France via Stockholm, Milan, Berlin and of course Paris. Double-CD featuring the selections of Michel Gaubert and Marie Branellec."~
Great graphic. Available online.


Henry Air Purifier

Standing just over 50" tall, the Henry Air Purifier is capable of getting rid pollutants such as dust, pollen, soot, spores, smells, and even certain germs from the air, thanks to a five-stage filter which consists of a carbon/HEPA filter, a plasma generator, a Titanium Dioxide and UV light, a negative Ion generator and a fragrance holder.

Bell Alarm Clock

The Bell Alarm Clock from IDEA and Industrial Facility. This clock would look great just about anywhere you put it.

Round Up...

of white bed linens. There's just something about a crisp white bed. Might seem boring to some, but it's really what you put around it (or in it) to spice things up.

Wine & Bar Accessories

I've said it before, but I really do appreciate a simple yet beautiful design and I wish I had seen these sooner. Our housekeeper has lost all my black rubber (ugly) wine stoppers so I've been cramming the old, cracked from the cork screw (ugly) corks into my open bottles of wine for a long while now. After seeing this cleverly designed set of cork wine accessories, I want to rid my tacky habit and use these. Normann Copenhagen's Wine & Bar accessories designed by Aurélien Barbry are just lovely.
