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.

The Spotless Table is a fun new concept by Dutch designer Jenna Postma (previously). The surface of the side table is embedded with six ceramic coasters that can easily be removed for quick cleaning. The minimalist in me heartily approves.

Swiss design student Jérôme Haldemann was given the class assignment of creating a font based on an animal theme. The animal he received at random: a hedgehog. Behold his prickly, three-dimensional interpretation of Bodoni: TYPICK. Thanks Jérôme for sharing your work with Colossal!

A new commercial for NTT Docomo’s Touch Wood SH-08C wooden-encased phone, created by Morihiro Harano of Drill Inc. The video follows a small wooden ball that traverses a sloped xylophone “track”, relying only on the force of gravity to gradually play Bach’s Cantata 147. If only more advertising was this brilliant. (via spoon and tamago)

Street Map Cutting Board is Both Functional and Gruesome

Street Map Cutting Board is Both Functional and Gruesome wood maps food cooking city

Just saw this new item pop up at my favorite Icelandic design shop, Birkiland. The Nordurmyrin by 7-9-13 Design Group is a meat cutting board designed to mimic the streets of an actual neighborhood in east Reykjavik.

Nordurmyrin is a meat cutting- and serving board. It draws its name from a neighbourhood in the old east of Reykjavik. Its street names are named after renowned characters in the old icelandic sagas: Landnama, Laxdaela and Njala. These are examples of the street names: Audargata, Gudrunargata, Gunnarsbraut and Skarphedinsgata. When meat is cut on the board the blood juices rush down the streets. It refers to the conflicts that arose in the societies of the second and third generations of Icelandic settlers.

The blood juices run down the streets?! Excuse me while I put on my Bill the Butcher costume and whip out the credit card, this cutting board is the most gruesomely awesome kitchen implement of 2011.

Artist Laurie Frick describes her work as being a fine line between art and neuroscience. Using aggregate data gathered from nightly EEG activity as a starting point she creates visual patterns and rhythms which are transformed into sprawling grids of cardboard, wood, and paper magazine fragments.

Formerly an executive in high-technology, she also holds an MBA from the University of Southern California. Using her background in engineering and high-technology she explores science, compulsive organization and the current culture of continual partial attention. The body of work for her upcoming show at Edward Cella Art & Architecture are experiments in rhythm using time studies of daily activity logs and sleep charts. Capturing the way we slice our time, waking and sleeping reflects a familiar human rhythm and replays something inherently unnoticed back into the physical world. [...] All are built from modest materials that look and feel familiar and hold a sensibility of time. Materials register with familiar texture we’ve all touched and experienced. Recycled cardboard, hand towels, junk mail, gallery cards, old paper-back book covers, and in this exhibition found wood eyeglass trays from an old warehouse in Omaha, Nebraska.

See more of Laurie’s work now at Edward Cella Art + Architecture in Los Angeles through April 2. (via c-monster)
