Handmade Recycled Beer Glasses

Drink beer. Save the World. I’m usually not that excited by recycled homewares, but I do like well designed novelty goods, am a fan of handmade things and I certainly like things related the alcohol consumption.

Japanese Tattoo Table

The unfortunately named ‘Yakuza’ is a digitally tattooed wooden table by Reddish Studio. It looks like it’s part of a collection. We have no idea what the ‘digital tattoo’ process involves, but it definitely looks pretty cool. It’s made out of veneered MDF with some kind of digital printing technology.

Lamp pretends to be bucket of blood, is awesome...

The liquid lamp by Kouichi Okamoto is as beautiful as it is fun to look at.  The illusion it creates and vector-esque lines make it quite an unusual lighting piece.  Comes in white and red and costs USD$199 and you can buy it here.

Apparently it all started in 007 when Clark’s wife wanted a nice piece of art to decorate a wall. Voluntarily, Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in the water, and starting snapping away capturing the beauty and power of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out. “Clark’s view” is a unique view of the ocean that most will only be able...

studio shulab ‘lightpot’ concept is pretty...

Has anyone stayed up late enough to watch that infomercial for the Aerogarden? Clearly targeted at pot growers, this is a similar concept but way better looking. Studio Schulab have created the ‘lightpot’, a small pot for growing plants and herbs indoors. The light is LED based, which means it’s strong enough to keep the herbs and plants well lit in any room. Whether or not it gives them the right kind of light – I have no idea. It also collapses if you want no light, or to store away. I wonder if you could put it in the fridge like that to keep it fresh? Still I’ve always wanted something like this, as I like pretty...
