Barnacle-like ‘Wallpockets’


These little sconce-like Wallpockets, designed by Ampersand, are a playful solution to both a storage problem and the issue of dangling cords. Inspired by barnacles, the Wallpocket sticks to your wall and it meant to create a place to leave your cell phone [or other small device] to charge, while hiding the power cord. That, or act as a small shelf / storage place for other small items you have laying around the flat.


Wallpockets are die-cut from e-flute cardboard, shipped flat, and have an adhesive-free assembly.

Rick Santelli: What a D!ck

YouTube Preview Image

Yes, Mr Santelli - we should simply tell all those stupid, foolish people who watched CNBC for the past decade, listened to you’re BS hyping the markets, and then acted on advice given by people such as yourself, to go screw. You sir, are an asshole - people like you helped push the greedy policies that duped these unfortunate individuals into believing making these bad investments [and for years made people like you shitloads of money]. Where were you to tell these people that getting into these mortgages was a bad idea?

Additionally, this guy - and people like him - are pulling some Reagan-type nonsense over here and making broad, unfounded claims about homeowners in trouble with their mortgages. Just as Ronald talked shit about ‘welfare queens’, suggesting that was a majority trend in our welfare system [Republican bullshit], now peolpe like Rick the Dick here are characterising the owners of the toxic mortgages as greedy and system-abusing individuals who should be left out in the cold. Meanwhile, the reality here is that the system was set up to take advantage of these home buyers - the majority of whom were simply regular people trying to do that whole ‘American dream’ thing and own a house.

A poll to see if we want to subsidize the ‘losers’ mortgages? I’d bet my life that more Americans would prefer that to subsidizing all these banks. At least if we help homeowners, we know that money will start to flow again - as mortgage aid means these people can do things like shop again. That, and I would hope the average citizen would prefer help an individual to a corporation. So far these banks are just taking our money and telling us to take a long walk - screwing the general population yet again.

Lastly - do we really need CNBC? Its a station devoted to riding capitalism like a rodeo show - continuously arguing in support of the only economic system we have.
[Note: I decided a rant was the only appropriate way to discuss this jackass’ rant - my apologies]

Kinky Gramophone


I’m of the opinion that it would be much much cooler if it played actual records…but this thing is still pretty fly. I wonder how it sounds?

The Neo Gramophone by Kinky Form is an edgy polygonal update on the traditional gramophone. The angled gramophone features multiple speakers and a subwoofer with the horn as the bass-reflex tube and plays music via streaming or loading tunes via Bluetooth. A simple subsurface menu (reacts upon touching the menu area) provides easy playing, simple usage like the traditional gramophone.

"Row, Row, Row Your House"

From the New School Free Press (Kate Hanselman):

Looking strikingly like an old Gloucester fisherman, with a full black beard and windblown hair, Dayyan Armstrong trudged through the afternoon drizzle at the Worlda€™s Fair Marina. Wearing a wool sweater over a plaid oxford, with an earthen mug in hand, he unlocked the pale blue metal gate leading to the docks. As he traipsed past rows of weatherbeaten boats bobbing calmly on their tethers, he explained that his situation was a little precarious. a€oeNo one really cares that Ia€™m here except this one guy who keeps asking me if I live here…I had to hide behind a bush once, but he saw me and waved,a€A he says.

Armstrong, a 23-year-old student in the New School Masters program for Economics, has been living on his 28-foot sailboat, Goose, since this summer, when he sailed her down from Maine. He lives in the marina between LaGuardia Airport and Shea Stadium in Queens and pays roughly $980 for the six-month winter season to moor his boat.

a€oeIn high school, for my stepbrother and I, it was, do we get a car or a sailboat?a€A Armstrong said.

ZigZag Coffee Table : Tsai Design Studio


Born in Taiwan and trained in South Africa as an architect, Tsai uses his eclectic and modern design sense to create the ZigZag Coffee Table.AA Beginning with a rigid angular form traditionally found in Chinese home doorframes and screens, Tsai has cleverly combined artistic sensibility and space saving awareness.AA As a functional piece, the interior of the ZigZag Table creates a series of shelves that can be used to hold any number of objects.AA What better way to clear the clutter and leave only clean looks and bold design behind ?

Tsaia€™s designs have won international praise, including the 2007 Red Dot Design Award and the 2007 Momentum/Topbilling Lifestyle DA©cor winner.AA In 2008, Tsai was honoured with the first ever a€oeMost Beautiful Object in South Africaa€A award for his nested bunk beds.AA The bunk beds, inspired by traditional Russian Matriochka dolls, were designed to pull out to accommodate a sofa, grandstand style seating, and five full sized beds, all the while fitting comfortably within a space of 36 square meters, the average size of a home in South Africaa€™s townships.AA Here, great design epitomizes practicality — the charitable foundation Shoebox Homes now manufactures his beds for use in orphanages across the country.

So this may just be a concept - I’m not sure. But either way, pretty dope right? The Woodstation is a clock / calendar / weather device, all within a sleak little wooden shape. Without many details on how they’re put together [if a ‘real’ prototype even exists], I would assume the ‘wood’ is really just some kind of translucent veneer.

And, I want one…

Ninja Homes: Sin Den


Located in Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Sin Den was desgined by Klein Dytham architecture for a young couple and their baby. Part house, part ‘cutting-edge’ salon, the building is meant to attract ‘those who have their own style and seek a perfect hideaway’.


From the exterior the house/salon is meant to stand out and draw attention to itself. Filling the 50 square meter site with what is essentially a black box, the designers were trying to create a strong graphic image on the otherwise simple and massive box - displaying the creativity and uniqueness of the home’s inhabitants.




The interior of the building is, apparently, quite the opposite - creating what Klein Dytham describes as the ‘perfect interior for a family home’ through a simpler design, with ‘natural’ colors and spaces flooded with natural light from the large windows cut in the ‘box’.
