Your Magnet - simple, inspiring and extremely practical mobile accessory

The U magnet - the one that you know you from your childhood, but in a totally different emploi. Practical, multi-functional and magnetic, not by the powers of North and South poles, but by the simple suction plate.

You can basically use it as a stand for your iPhone (best on iPhone 4S;) ) and fix it so you can stream your favorite HD content or stick it straight on your laptop to keep the wires organised. Use it as a handle on your favorite cup, as a fridge magnet or simply as a colorful decoration around the house.

Practical stuff we definitely like and recommend.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

We must admit that every piece from the Living Kitchen by Studio Gorm makes me feel like I found the dream kitchen setup. The idea of growing, storing, cooking and composting to grow more food, straight on your kitchen plot is simply an Oscar pretender.

The Flow Kitchen developed as a flexible system where resources like waste, water and energy are reused, thus way creating a dynamic and endless flow between the natural elements.

The most creative Flow's kitchen accents are:

1. The vertical hanging dish rack, not only save space, but also waters the planter boxes with herbs and edible plants, which are growing beneath it.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

2. Composter bin, which is charged with scraps by an integrated cutting board. It's simply a genius idea to produce nutrient rich fertilizer by breaking down the waste food - it's just a bit not right to grow worm farm in your kitchen to help you out turning the food into worm castings. In about 4 to 6 weeks the fertilizer can be used in the herb boxes, added to houseplants or the garden.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

3. The storage jars are made from unglazed earthenware with beech wood lids, so they can utilize the natural porous properties of earthenware, which creates an ideal environment for maintaining the consistency of bread, extending the life of garlic and onions, storing grains and growing herbs etc.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

4. That's not all folks - you also got evaporative cooling fridge box, utensil drawer in economic and easy to access format, the gas cook offering conventional standards with elegant top in floral patterns, comfortable bag rack to hang any shopping bags.

Living Kitchen - utilize efficiently the natural resources in home

Flow Living Kitchen is a brilliant idea, with a practical and conventional realization. We just believe that the successful design needs a pinch of sophistication and slickness which will makes out of Flow Living Kitchen a true bestseller.

Tetris Pots - ceramic ideas for creative interiors

Another immortal inspiration has found a new design revival and practical usage. The French product designer Stephanie Choplin has incarnated the Tetris idea into colorful ceramic pots or just Tetris Pots. Born as a simple experiment during the ceramic course in the Estonian Academy of Arts, Stephanie’s initial idea was to personally carry out the model, the mould, the molding, coloring and cooking. Unfortunately the model was too big with complex molding of 2 parts and the final result was not satisfying. So what’s left is the brilliant idea, illustrated in 3D models below, waiting for go-getting production.

Anybody to give them another try? I’m definitely buying.

Instead of the Tetris Pots, Stephanie Choplin decided to carry out a single form and create several objects using the same form. So with a smart tweak and re-shape of the traditional cup, you’ve got an impressive complementing ceramic cup set, that your kitchen will fell in love with.

Designer Axes collection spring 2009 by Best Made Co.

Exclusively hand-forged and tempered from one of America’s old axe companies, then hand-painted and polished by the founders of Best Made Co. to mould their spring 2009 axe collection. The shape of all 11 axes reminds me of the Indian tomahawk and the mixture of its wild spirit and the contemporary design patterns makes the entire collection standing out in style. The thing is that only an old hardcore boy scout will probably afford prices varying from $200 to $550.

FIRO - innovative cooking device for modern picnics

One of these lasting memories from my childhood is the open air camping, where gathered around the camp fire, we wrapped potatoes and onions in cooking foil to bury them in the live coals and eat later on, like they were the most delicious thing on earth.
Pretty much all the inventions these days are exploring our good old habits trying to improve and polish the experience. Whether it’s a steel of our natural ways of reaction or a pure enlightenment on how things can work better, the progress is always here to stay and the FIRO concept by Andrea Nimtschke is totally proving it.

It holds 4 pots, attached to a railing construction with a swiveling support for maintaining the food level, thus way FIRO can be easily and safely dragged in and out of the fire. The pots are used both for cooking and eating purposes with utensils that clips on the sides of each pot and temperature insulation pockets for handling while hot. All from above in a compact and elegant 5 kg package.
