Haoshi Cuckoo Clock

Here’s a refreshing contemporary twist to the traditional cuckoo clock. Instead of there being just one bird in the clock, Haoshi placed a second bird next to the clock. This way, when it is time for the Cuckoo bird to sing, it exits its home and approaches the second bird and sings to it. This delightful concept communicates the need for companionship and sharing.

Babylon

The Babylon is a beautiful set of office tools that includes a pair of scissors, a stapler, a cup to hold writing utensils, a free-standing pen, a sticky tape holder and a clock. What sets the Babylon collection apart is its phenomenal design. The collection was primarily inspired by rock strata and each item has an appealing multi-faceted surface. While each piece has its own individual appeal and can stand alone, when the items are combined, the design language that ties the pieces together shines through and gives the collection its splendor.

The ClickClock Lamp is a beautifully designed contemporary piece that combines a light fixture and a clock. It is ideal for those who need space-saving solutions since it is small and compact.

The ClickClock Lamp has an appealing rectangular shape and the light fixture is classic white. The base comes in several tones of wood and you can also choose from a variety of LED colors.

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

I love flowers and I love having a flower arrangement on my dining room table. I think the Ang Flower Vase is absolutely fantastic since it makes arranging the flowers really easy and it displays them so that they look their very best. Unlike regular vases, the Ang Vase has a broad bracket that supports the flowers and gives you a lot of freedom to arrange them the way you want. Best of all, it has an exquisite design. It is made from mouth-blown glass combined with brass and is certain to compliment the design of any home. Continue reading

World Clock

The 11+ World Clock transforms the relatively mundane task of calculating time zone differences into an interactive and highly aesthetic experience. The Clock has a unique cylindrical design that displays 24 of the world’s top cities in 12 different time zones. In order to move between the time zones, users need to select a particular city and then roll the Clock to see the local time in that city. This playful interaction between users and design truly redefines the traditional functionality of a clock and introduces a new way of looking at our global village. Continue reading

Ready Made Curtain

Not often do I wonder how I can improve my curtains. They are very stark, almost ugly, and functional. I think about installing new ones because they don’t block enough of the ambient streetlight in my neighborhood. Continue reading
