Zai Higo

Simple, utilitarian, beautiful. Those are the first three adjectives that come to mind when I saw these tools designed by Kacper Hamilton for Swiss ski company Zai. Both the name and design pay homage to the Japanese Higonokami (“Higo”) crafted by metal smiths for centuries. The design and manufacturing follow in the footsteps of the original Higo craftsmen, with the utmost attention to detail. Another element that Zai requested was for the entire tool to take up the least amount of space as possible, or order to make the tool as efficient as possible for skiers and backpackers to stow.

Grid

Binary Thumb beta-launched its new spreadsheet app called Grid last week. A app that aims to simplify and redefine how spreadsheets can be used. Easily allowing users to integrate maps, images, numbers and other data. Grid edges more towards a simplistic tool for making info graphics than a spreadsheet application, which is definitely what will really set them apart.

Meccanica

Meccanica is a super versatile light weight shelving solution engineered by Valcucine for Demode. My favorite part about this system has to be its versatility. It can literally be applied in every room and space in the house to organize or display your belongings. One of my favorite uses is the indoor garden with all the potted plants, and the industrial look of the kitchens which use it is really interesting as well. The system is customizable, from adding drawers to how it is fixed to the floor wall or hanging.

Dove House

Architects Gundry Ducker designed Dove House as an extension onto the back of a terraced victorian townhouse in London. The kitchen is so minimalist and clean, I would absolutely love to cook in there, and clean for that matter. All the surfaces look like you could so easily wipe them clean. The protected outdoor deck area is really beautifully handled, I am curious though how the dark stained larch wood reacts with sun. It seems like it could really heat up.

Brisk

Brisk is a new weather app in beta from the awesome guys over at Two Solid. As opposed to the bland pervasive data based weather apps Brisk takes a more visual and tactile approach. The current and upcoming weather is illustrated with simple icons and color fields based on the temperature and weather type. By taking away most of the excess components your average weather app seem required to use Two Solid was able to create a fresh fun way to check the weather.

Dental Office

Posting this Monday morning at 10am seems rather apt as it seems like a very logical time to have dentist appointment scheduled. That said this dental office designed by Estudio Hago is a definite cure for a case of the Mondays and your fear of the dentist. The stark minimalism and light airy environment could even make getting a route canal more palatable.

Photographer’s Studio

Overall I am not totally in love with this studio, but the way it is sited just up the steep shore from the lake and the way the glass cube interacts with nature throughout the changing seasons is awesome. I particularly enjoy the cube blending into the snowy landscape. The interior is astonishingly unimpressive. A stark box furnished with generic modern fixtures and sparse furnishings. The floor to ceiling shades create an amazing diffused light, which I am sure was a requirement of the client(a photographer). Design of this building was by gh3 architects.

SSB-1

Slotted System Bookcase or simply SSB-1 is a nice alternative to stacking books on a table. The design is based on Bruno Matthson Book Crib with a more utilitarian air, which I prefer. Art books and other weird sized publications are always a hassle to store or display, but these bookcases are serious hold-alls. Making easy work of any rectangular objects. I also love that they are shipped and slot together like a breeze without any hardware, or the dreaded Ikea hex-keys.

Envelope Chest

From a young age I was a collector. Rating the importance of my belongings and stowing them away in difference types of containers according to their related value. My most prized items and those alone made it into a beautifully crafted treasure chest which my dad built for me. This Envelope Chest from Field Day brings up all these powerful memories and associations from my childhood. It is also interesting to be able to look back at those behaviors and see what has remained the same and what has shaped me into the type of person I am. Still a collector at heart, this chest would most definitely have a home on my shelf for some very special things.

COR Lounge Chair

I can’t say I love the name(Shrimp Cocktail), but this chair does resemble an update or possibly a revision of the iconic Eames Lounge Chair. Designed for COR by Jehs+Laub. This lounge is a nice alternative to the ubiquitous Herman Miller version.
