The Nogg is a modern chicken coop designed by Matthew Hayward.
The nogg transcends ideas of what a chicken house usually looks like. It is designed to encourage domestic farming while adding a touch of playful elegance.
Engineered and crafted by hand in the UK the nogg is made from strong cedar wood which is fresh scented and naturally antibacterial. Stainless steel trimming, locks & fasteners and the elevated glass dome gives the nogg a contemporary feel and is reassuringly safe and durable.
After discovering Brendan Ravenhill’s excellent wood and nail bottle opener, I started thinking about how I’ve always appreciated the simplistic bottle opener over anything more ornamental or complex. Searching around online I realized that bottle openers are much like watches, in that there are literally thousands of designs that accomplish the exact same task. Here are some of the best I found.
The mono up & zu.
The Iittalia Collective Tools opener designed by Antonio Citterio.
A vintage German Monopol corkscrew and wine opener. (looks like he only has this one available)
Nothing beats the simplicity or the price of a good old fashioned church key opener.
And finally the Japanese Alps 7 Opener available at Kiosk.
It’s easy to take for granted the magic of electricity in your home, but these whimsical self-adhesive stickers are a clever reminder of what it really takes to light your room or power your vacuum.
