Ceramic Coasters of the Streets of Oslo

June 22, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I’m really enjoying these ceramic street map coasters by industrial designer Anders Hansen. Each coaster is formed from a different area of Oslo including Majorstuen, Parkveien, Sentrum, Kvadraturen, Sentrum Øst and Grünerløkka. Available in his shop for about $15-$22 apiece. (via behance)

Matchbox Gardens

June 22, 2011

Christopher Jobson

From Another Studio, makers of the pop-up postcard gardens comes MatchCarden, little teeny tiny gardens that sprout from a container the size of a traditional matchbox. Personally I won’t be satisfied until they release a postagestampcarden. (via core77)

Chris Dorosz creates these three dimensional furniture installations using blobs of paint suspended from filament, and uses a simliar technique to create human figures. I can’t imagine how difficult it is to affix viscous, acrylic paint to monofilament like this.

A really wonderful set of four ornithology letterpress coasters, each with a fun visual twist by London-based Ryan Todd. Lots more beautifully designed prints and shirts in his shop. (via notcot)

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)

Christopher Jobson

The Clock Clock by humans since 1982 is a faux-digital clock made of 24 analog clicks with standard hour and minute hands. (via the supremely awesome lustik which you should be following)
