These are only advertisements, not the real thing. But based on how cool they look, I think they should actually make em. The egg carton is my favorite.

Zuriick makes some fly f’in shoes. Plus they get bonus points for having purple soles. And they’re quite affordable too — each pair around $65. They don’t make the ones I bought anymore so I’ll take a picture when I get a chance. Simon out.

Melted Polppropylene Rope Chair by Tom Price

This chair is created by heating and pressing a seat-shaped former into a ball of polypropylene rope. The rope begins to liquify as it comes into contact with the heated former and, as it cools, it sets in the shape of a seat creating a contrast in form and texture to the remaining rope. No additional material has been added to make the seat – it is all made from melted rope.


If it unravels I guess you can melt it again.

Shweet. One bead drops every five minutes. By the way if you have never held a bead necklace in your hand and constantly slide a bead down hearing it hit the other ones, you’re missing out. It’s extremely relaxing. It’s like twiddling thumbs, except not stupid.
