Ball of string wax candle

This ball of string wax candle by Gomitolo is priced well out of range for my household, but it sure does look awesome. (via svpply)

Light Painting with Roomba Vacuum Cleaners

July 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

These photos have apparently been around for a while, but this is totally new to me. An enterprising group of robotic vacuum cleaner owners have used LEDs affixed to the top of their Roombas to create these amazing long exposure photographs. Check out Roomba art group for more. Photos via IBR Roomba, Mike Bala, and Steve Doll. (via laughing squid)

A Chair on Wheels Made of Books

June 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

When I think of furniture made from books the first word that comes to mind is uncomfortable, however this hefty chair entitled Bench of Thoughts (Banco del Pensamiento) made of recycled books by Alvaro Tamarit actually looks pretty darn comfy. The heft of the chair also matches the price, however this is certainly more of an art piece than something to eat your bagel and coffee in the morning. Check it out over on Saatchi Online.

Ceramic Coasters of the Streets of Oslo

June 22, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I’m really enjoying these ceramic street map coasters by industrial designer Anders Hansen. Each coaster is formed from a different area of Oslo including Majorstuen, Parkveien, Sentrum, Kvadraturen, Sentrum Øst and Grünerløkka. Available in his shop for about $15-$22 apiece. (via behance)

Matchbox Gardens

June 22, 2011

Christopher Jobson

From Another Studio, makers of the pop-up postcard gardens comes MatchCarden, little teeny tiny gardens that sprout from a container the size of a traditional matchbox. Personally I won’t be satisfied until they release a postagestampcarden. (via core77)

Chris Dorosz

Christopher Jobson

Chris Dorosz creates these three dimensional furniture installations using blobs of paint suspended from filament, and uses a simliar technique to create human figures. I can’t imagine how difficult it is to affix viscous, acrylic paint to monofilament like this.

A really wonderful set of four ornithology letterpress coasters, each with a fun visual twist by London-based Ryan Todd. Lots more beautifully designed prints and shirts in his shop. (via notcot)
