Need/Want Glass

April 29, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The Need/Want Glass from Alesina Design encourages you to think about wasting water every time you take a drink. By holding your finger over a hole in the glass, you consciously permit yourself to have more water than you might “need”. This is all subjective I’m sure, and if you could somehow apply the concept to watering your lawn or taking a bath it might be even more effective. Still, got me thinking. Each glass is hand finished, numbered, and signed. Available here.

Break Soap

March 31, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Break soap is a concept by Dave Hakkens that involves a large block of soap with removable “self-serve” wedges that can be snapped off for individual use without having to touching a bar that’s been handled by somebody else. More hygienic see? If only Jack Nicholson’s character in As Good as It Gets had access to this brilliant invention. (via design crush)

Rocket Candles

March 2, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Taking inspiration from retro-futuristic space illustration as seen in 1950s era comic book Tintin these Rocket Candles, should be “available soon” from the folks at Design Division. I’m trying to imagine an aesthetically pleasing way for the flame to originate from the proper end, however this solution seems sufficiently awesome.
