Open Sez Me

This cabinet by designer Kiki van Eijk that opens like a giant sewing box. The cabinet was made of elm and features knobs cast in solid brass. The mechanism is supported by springs so that pulling on one side opens up the whole structure, despite its weight, without a motor or electronic components. “I wanted to have the analogue feel of this old-school sewing box, and I wouldn’t like it if you have to open it with two people or if there’s a motor inside because then it becomes something electronic and it really doesn’t fit with the idea,” said van Eijk, adding that the project took four years to perfect because the mechanics were so tricky. Fun and functional. We love it!

Exterior wallpaper?

The Italian wallpaper company Wall & Decò is known for creating exquisite, large-scale mural-like wallpapers that define a room. They are widely used in hotels and restaurants, and for private residences by interior designers. We wonder if this idea will stick:)

Great pick!

This is genius on so many levels. A simple metal punch that lets you turn any piece of sheet plastic like an expired ATM card, into a guitar pick. Now if we could only play guitar! Thanks Core 77

Typeface adorations abound, and we’re excited to have their super-hip ‘Design Nerds’ T-shirts—clothing with a penchant for print.

Uncanny

Check out the new Andy Warhol limited edition tomato soup cans at Target! In partnership with the Andy Warhol foundation, Campbell’s is releasing these limited edition cans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Warhol’s iconic paintings. They’re exclusively being sold at Target stores for 75¢ each. We spotted at least 4 different colorways. How uncanny? Sorry.

Modern Art(chitecture)

Take one of our favorite subjects (modern architecture) and mix in a truly talented artist and you have for some stunning modern art. Paul Davies doesn’t just paint pictures of modern houses, he creates dreamscapes that make us love even more, what we already dream about. We really love the mix of exactness and organic brush strokes, these pieces are truly killer. Video>

12 x 12

As the name implies Bellboy's Water Tower Chair takes its shape from planks salvaged from a 10,000-gallon rooftop water tank that once stood atop a Park Avenue co-op. The 40-year-old California Redwood lends its beautiful color and rich grain perfectly. Each 8' plank has been chopped down and consecutively laid to accentuate the lounge chair's flowing, mid-century inspired silhouette. Part of an exhibition of Contemporary Design using salvaged material.

Do Ho Suh‘s floating fabric structures explore the concept of “home” and the relationship between the nomadic artist and his temporary living quarters. The South Korean sculptor recreates his former residences — crammed studios, traditional family units, Manhattan pre-war apartment buildings — in silk or polyester, which he suspends over a metal framework, giving these solid structures a tenuous, transitory quality. Now he just needs some furniture!
