Klipy Kitchen Tools

I love entertaining, whether on holidays, birthdays or simply on the weekend, there’s nothing like passing time with family and friends. However, as a city dweller it’s sometimes a bit challenging as space is quite compact, which is why I prefer items that are designed with functionality and a small footprint in mind.

Today, I’m going to share two wonderful kitchen tools that will make my life (and yours) a lot easier. One is a cake divider, the other, a compact dish drainer – designed by industrial designer Guy Klipshtein from Klipy Studio. Continue reading

JUMP Cable

We have all experienced the frustration of having our Smartphone or tablet run out of battery exactly when we need it the most.

Around Clock

The Around Clock is an analog clock that displays the time on a cylinder as opposed to a traditional flat face. It has a very clean and minimalistic design that grabs your attention and invites you to experience telling the time in a brand new way. The Around Clock has a contemporary aluminum finish and its numbers and marks are displayed in clear and bold black font. I particularly like the arm which is bright red and made from a solid cable like material. The arm gently rotates around the cylinder to indicate the time. Continue reading
