Amazing Sand Drawing

Kseniya Simonova is a Ukrainian artist who just won Ukraine's version of "America's Got Talent." She uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and "sand painting" skills to interpret Germany's invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII.
Thank you Rolo for sharing this.

Nesting Felted Bowls

Handknit and hot-felted, these soft merino wool bowls offer a couple nice places to put your loose change or spot to toss your keys on the way in the front door (not to mention add a bit of bold color to your coffee table or sideboard). The small one fits inside the larger and they come shipped in a gift box, perfect to give as a small present.

Letter Rack

Its form evokes an envelope and its function encourages putting pen to paper and sending a note through the post. This limited edition GOODD exclusive from designer David Weatherhead might not help you sort your online bills or send any friendly emails, but it will keep your tactile correspondence in order. Made of powder coated steel, and also available in black or bright "Pillar Box" red.

Mishell Chairs

As a large family of products the Mishell series is a contemporary line suitable both for home and commercial environments. The signature bucket shape is found in the armchairs, chairs and the barstools thanks to the technique of using one form of plywood cut out to different dimensions. Containing a wide selection of matching of metal legs and supports the Mishnell line can meet everyone’s needs. Available as a dining chair, wide armchair, barstool, and revolving armchair with an optional ottoman. Contract quality.

Twisted Console

Twisted is San Francisco designer Dylan Gold's ever-so-slightly tilted take on a console unit. The multi-purpose bamboo piece can be ordered with or without the steel stand, mounted to the wall or set up vertically, and filled with your favorite books and little tchotkes to display.

Moby Tape Dispenser

Staplers, pen holders, Rolodexes, we've ceded them all to that great bland Staples aesthetic of black plastic and dull stainless steel. The odds that this tape dispenser does a better job than the one you've already got are slim. Though when you finally cast that one across the room, unable to face another day of a desk covered with uninspired office accouterments, Moby is the only place to go.

Vitsoe Starter Collection

Dieter Rams designed Vitsoe's classic universal shelving system in 1960, and now you can buy a simple starter collection online. These pre-planned units come in three sizes and a hanging rail, and can be added to at any time for modular organization made easy.

New Freitag Computer Bags

Most of the working population have to rely on their tie to show a bit of color. Freitag strives to change that and are launching two new computer bags: F76 LEO and F77 BEN. Both of them have an integrated laptop sleeve (13“ and 15“), inner and outer pockets, and lots of elbowroom, for climbing up the corporate ladder. via swiss-miss
