I’m really enjoying the objects available in the Sebastian Bergne online shop which just launched last December. Lots of fantastic things for the home and kitchen, as well as some playful stuff too. Sebastian Bergne is a multidisciplinary design firm out of London.
The floating animation pen is a collaboration between Japanese designers Satoshi Endo and Taku Sato who spent six months researching and developing the perfect combination of elements that would simulate a 6-frame slit animation within the tiny confines of a liquid filled pen. Mesmerizing. (via designboom)
Designed by Belgian industrial designer Jens Praet these sleek and textured furniture pieces are constructed from shredded magazines and documents mixed with clear resin. Each of the 12 pieces was made solely from a different magazine including publications like Art in America, Details, and Fast Company. Nine of them are currently on display as part of Praet’s first U.S. solo show, Fossilized, at Industrial Gallery in Washington D.C. through February 26. (via yatzer)
This sure beats colored plastic letters, although it could prove challenging to spell ‘poop’ with the east coast when mom isn’t looking. The whole puzzle measures about 12″ wide by 7″ tall and is made of solid oak. Beautiful. Pick one up on for $55. (thnx, megan!)
