A gorgeous and smart work table is the Borrod Table. Designed by Denmark-based Line Depping,”Borrod table is a project playing with order and disorder. An idea to tidy your working desk in an instant.”
The sliding surface of the table opens to reveal a screen for collecting work materials underneath.

I want one. Bad.
This is UnderCover OverNight by German exchange student Silvia Terhedebrugge, a cape/bag designed in conjunction with Philadelphia Museum of Art’s exhibition, Zaha Hadid: Form In Motion. Terhedebrugge won first place.
“The piece is fashioned as a cape with visible pockets on the outside and secret pockets on the inside that can hold items for overnight trips.”

It’s cute. It colourful. It’s a USB camera named “Clap Your Hands” that takes the cable out of photo transfers. With 2 megapixels and six colours to choose from, it’s the perfect consumer gift. I expect to see this in little design-happy stores soon.
I love that there is a fabulous reuse for Jerrycans. Instructions/design by Quebecois Industrial Designer Samuel Bernier, with just six different materials you can have yourself a pair of striking speakers. Red makes it louder.
You say ‘modular’, and I say ‘YES!’
Enter Seung Yong Song, a man with a plan1. Designing 8 pieces of fucking fabulous furniture filled with whimsy. Each ‘chair’ starts off with four timber legs and a lacquered white seat, and from there all manner of eccentricities ensue.
The pieces can be placed together to form a bed, or different, totally rad space saving arrangements. Song also designed extra matching pieces of furniture including a rocking chair that holds your clothing with ocky straps or the like, ladder-chairs for vertical storage and even a literal chair lamp.
I AM SO IMPRESS.
For serious, I would throw out all of the furniture I have and use only these bizarre pieces.
I hope you love them as much as I do2.
I tweeted this last week, but I am still in love with the idea. The design world is seeing a huge burst in ‘service design’ (TASCI, Huddle, This Is Service Design Thinking) the new go to buzz word. But this development, I like. As the US population ages (with less births and longer lives), public spaces (and their design) needs to be rethought. The solution? AGNES.
AGNES is a suit that the young and able can wear to catch a glimpse of how they will feel in another 40-60 years. I love this for so many reasons. It’s a great example of what design can do. MOAR OF THIS LESS CHAIRZ PLZ*.
*No hard feelings, Broom.
I love this idea. Mainly because I would give it to my friend Jen… She is teh expert baker amaze. Then I could have TWO OF JEN’S TASTE SENSATIONS per visit.
Worth it. Buy now.
Ussi’s designed this magnetic knife rack using reclaimed ‘old-growth’ Cypress for water towers in Chicago. I love the idea, but wonder whether drunken house parties might result in a more dangerous form of darts. That’s just me? Fine.

I’m in love with messenger bags, so I wish I rode my bike enough to justify getting this Unit Portables bag. This guy is sleek and lovely and… and… I want one. For 13” and 15” laptops.
Head to Vetted to buy one.

Silencio Club (after Mulholland Drive) has been designed by David Lynch (who needs no introduction) and I am actually in love. Lynch designed some lovely chairs, too. Enamoured. Me.
Head to Designboom for the meaty info.
