NY Store Kiosk Sources Everyday Treasures from Japan

October 22, 2010

Christopher Jobson

I stumbled onto Kiosk when doing research for the minimalist bottle openers post a few weeks ago. The folks who run this NY-based store trek far and wide to places like Sweden, Finland, or Hong Kong and pick up tons of funky stuff that you’ve probably never seen before. Some things are quirky, some utilitarian, others just decorative and fun. The spoils from their second journey to Japan went online last night.

Behold the world’s first minimalist steampunk table. The Lois is a one-of-a-kind table designed by Charles Waugh out of Boring, Oregon where apparently he makes stuff that’s anything but boring.

Three radios designed by Dieter Rams for Braun between 1959-1963. While you’re at it, why not brush up on Rams ten principles for good design. (via annelinnting)
