While technically not “Tetris” notes, ahem, these Block Notes from SUCK UK are pretty fantastic. Maybe it’s just me but I sense a the potential here for a lot more than just leaving notes. Elaborate artwork. Stop motion projects. A ridiculously hard to read book. Pick up a pack of all 8 pads for just £7.50 while they last. (via all things cool)
Japanese botanic artist Makoto Azuma (previously) has partnered with furniture designer Herman Miller to create this Aeron chair wrapped in a thin layer of cushy green AstroTurf. This particular model will be on display at the recently opened Herman Miller store in Tokyo later this summer. More images available via the designer’s blog. (via the always awesome spoon & tamago)
It’s been a long, long time since I’ve posted any identity projects and I’m happy to break that drought with this clever identity work by The Consult for communications firm Bang Your Own Drum. The business cards are embedded with a taught surface suitable for drumming with a dual-purpose drum stick pencil. (via designspiration)
These oak business card cases are handmade by Masakage Tanno in Asahikawa, Japan exclusively for the Scandinavian shop Mjolk. In February the team at Mjolk took a trip to Studio Tanno where they shot photos of his woodworking studio that revealed an incredibly quality of craftsmanship, something that’s quite rare these days.

I’m a sucker for physical type, and this project is no exception. Design student Erik Berger made this fun typeface out of a pound of rubber bands. (via typegoodness)
Love the design of these awesome sushi memo pads. They’re available here for about $21, but you’ll need to know Japanese. Anyone want to know Japanese for me? (via matomeno)
These are fun. Sardine paper clips, $13 for a box of 30.
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.
