felt alphabet

Do you remember plastic alphabet refrigerator magnets?
Now we can give our toddlers a highly improved set of numbers and letters to help them learn to count, spell and read. Felt alphabet and felt number sets from MiChiMa feature colorful letters and numbers that are easy for small hands to maneuver. You can use that alphabet all around your home to decorate.

Home on the go is a compact little campervan of a home. It’s a 13 piece block set with 1300 ways to arrange them. A simple game made of design and fun, I love it!

That illustration is very very cool, it is a fabric print...Think about a curtain or a shirt made with that pattern, simply crazy, even if I know someone that would dress something like that, eheh.
The pattern has been made by Justin Wallis.

remake it at home

Remake it Home is an exhaustive collection of resourceful household DIY design ideas. It's in the vein of US mag ReadyMade Magazine.
In addition to all the practical "why didn't I think of that" ideas the book also shares an inspiring collection of commercial design from all over the world which recycles existing materials in some fabulously designer way. (ie Tord Boontje's stunning Transglass vases, made from repurposed wine bottles, and my fave Log Bowls by Loyal Loot). Such simple and truly beautiful examples of sustainability in commercial design. I got to buy it!

green tea

Nice project here designed by Nathalia Ponomareva from Russia. These tea bags created by the principles of origami. While the tea infuses the bird or the shape is gradually expanding. This is very poetic. I do not know if it is commercially produced, but the idea is wonderful.

Have you ever seen Samantha Robinson's site? It is gorgeous, really. She creates beautiful romantic handmade porcelain I fall in love with.
