Tree Hugger is garbage-can made of recycled plastic. It's shape reminds of a garbage itself, eliminating any excuse for not throwing the scraps where appropriate. The practical element comes when you turn it upside down, so you can use it as stackable stool instead.

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.
