Three String Shelf

December 16, 2010

Christopher Jobson

My Google-sense tells me this three string shelf by Lara Knutson made the rounds a bit last year, but it’s definitely new to me. The title is kind of a misnomer, it’s actually just one string fed through a network of eyelet screws to create three points of contact for books to rest on. Simplistic, clever, and cheap. (via @designsponge)

Lights by David Taylor

November 23, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Killer lighting concepts by Stockholm designer and silversmith David Taylor. Most of his objects and lights are made to order for private collections and museums, but each is astonishingly well-crafted as if it were mass produced. Even more great stuff at his studio site, madeby.se. (via picked by six)

NY Store Kiosk Sources Everyday Treasures from Japan

October 22, 2010

Christopher Jobson

I stumbled onto Kiosk when doing research for the minimalist bottle openers post a few weeks ago. The folks who run this NY-based store trek far and wide to places like Sweden, Finland, or Hong Kong and pick up tons of funky stuff that you’ve probably never seen before. Some things are quirky, some utilitarian, others just decorative and fun. The spoils from their second journey to Japan went online last night.
