object: pack it up

I’m doing research for the new green committe at my son’s school. We want to promote zero-waste lunches. In Sydney my cousin’s kids call them nude lunches. Love it. Not sure I can sell that here in Los Angeles. But I have found some rather stylish lunch bags. Built NY was, of course, my first stop. There neoprene lunch sacks are great (Fugu pictured above). I also like Ecobags recycled cotton bags – very simple and easy to clean. Love this Planet also has a good lunch ‘box’. Now I have to figure out drink bottles. Advertisements

object: light art

24 year old designer Daniel Rybakken is obsessed with light. Maybe it’s  a Norwegian thing, long winters and all. But the results are stunning. Check out ‘dayight comes sideways’ (above) and his polished aluminium ‘mirror‘ below. His work is stunning.

object: computer case

I’m looking for a computer case for my lovely new MacBook Pro (thank you Brian for such a thoughtful birthday gift!) These woodgrain ones by HunterGatherer are cool but a little to masculine for me. I think the woodgrain works better on their iPhone protector. Via Grain Edit.

object: new at tortoise

My favourite Abbot Kinney design store, Tortoise, has new ceramics by Ryota Aoki. The perfect little vessels are half porcelain and half bone china (above). Tortoise is also offering carving classes with Yo Takimoto – you can read about one person’s experience in a similar class here. Sounds interesting. Yo’s work is below.

object: flawless

The designers behind Studiomake, David and Im Schafer , have produced a beautiful ceramic range dubbed Flawed. I spoke to them at ICFF and the idea is the slips’ drip marks are left so that each piece has its own character. They really were lovely pieces. They are available through Future Perfect.

object: eat up

I got an email this morning from Sara Ferarri (how great is that name!?) I met her at ICFF. She and Marcella Fiori collaborated on Dining Agenda – an ingenious book of placemats with its own spoon and fork stamped into the wooden cover.
