Christmas is coming! Hooray! And we have got our tree set up in the office, decked out in black and silver. The larger black matt balls remind me of the bombs in ‘Bomberman’ and I do think this set of Christmas baubles shaped like hand grenades would look right in place next to them. Kind of a nod towards our current world social climate.

Designed by Manchester designers Dorothy for social initiative Ctrl.Alt.Shift.

By doing away with all forms of printing on the can, Harc Lee’s hopefully soon to be realised concept of embossing the Coca-Cola logo on its cans is simple problem solving at its best. Printing pollution is removed completely, and the cans are now more easily recycled. Plus they look simply stunning!

Muji is great for those simple ideas that makes you go “Why did I not think of that”, and here they go again with a really simple hole-puncher. Yes a hole-puncher, but not one that does a hole or two, but four holes, spaced exactly  that punches a hole so the paper could fit within Lego bricks! The endless possibilities are giving me quite the high! Well, if its not your thing it could at least help you create little punch-out snowflakes four times as fast!

edit: Turns out I was being over excited and the Muji hole punch does just one hole and you will have  to use to template to line four holes up to be able to punch them out right., and we all know how accurate THAT will turn out. Plus way too muh effort if you asked me. Now we could just wish that they would do a four-holed version! Thanks stylembe!

I just found my perfect camera, complete with a chrome finish, calf skin leather, a Leica SUMMILUX-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH wide-angle lens, a lens hood and carrying strap! Now excuse me while I go find the 20,000SGD I know I have lying somewhere.

I have just came across these beautiful Shrub Tables by Liu Zhili, the same brilliant designer of the Sparrow, Dove & Nightingale lamps  that we featured a while back. I simply love how he exposed the screws for the legs onto the tabletop, making them features of the design rather than something he needs to hide. Seems like we have a thing for his nature inspired, uncluttered designs.

Brother made a WallOfSound – an iPod dock designed to fill an entire room, not just with sound, but with its presence itself. Go take a look and see if its worth taking up space in your living room. Plus how silly (and absolutely terrified) does that iPod look!

The latest in Jimmyjane’s line of designer pleasure devices is the FORM 2, a Yves Behar (of the Leaf Lamp fame) collaboration that aims to deliver both sensory and visual pleasure all in a tiny device that purportedly lasts for 7 hours on a single charge. Now THAT’S stamina!
