This guy collects telephones, and ads on telephones – and he’s got tons of them, published between 1910 and 1970.

monacca bag

I saw this really beautiful bag over at swissmiss. It can hold a 17″ Powerbook, but it will cost you $300. A unique and different product.

Venom Line

The bike manufacturer Specialized is working on a set of bike prototypes to be released in 2006. The original post was made in November’04, so some of the bikes might be available in the near future – but if you do a search for any of the models on the Specialized site, you don’t get any results.

Really cool DVD case

7/15/2005 |

Dotmov DVD This is one of the coolest DVD cases I have ever seen. It holds two discs and looks exactly (well, not exactly hehe) like a digital Beta tape. It costs 5250 yen – about $45 + shipping, so it’s quite pricey if you just want to get hold of the case…

Logotype trends

7/6/2005 |

(c) Cato Purnell Partners, Infratil Ok, this is pretty far from what we write about normally – but I thought that these pages was quite interesting, and maybe you’ll like them too. It’s’s Third Annual Visual Trends Report – and it’s exactly what it says – trends within logo design. And hey, it’s originally published in April, so it’s not completely fresh! Btw, I like the fire logos! Hehe.’s Third Annual Visual Trends Report

Soda can jewelry

7/5/2005 |

Soda can bracelet A couple of weeks ago I wrote about wearing these electronics as jewelry. Today I found something similar – bracelets, rings and cuffs made out of silver and old soda / beer cans. How about a Dr.Pepper bracelet or a Lucky Lager cuff?

Cocktails with a Twist

7/3/2005 | Twist Fred Bould has designed this gorgeous cocktail shaker called Twist. It’s made out of thermal-retentive metal and can hold 500ml. Unfortunately there’s no pricing or availability information available. It’s really beautiful.

At last – a stylish smoke detector

6/29/2005 |

Smoke detector by Jacob Jensen A lot of the most common home accessories have a really boring design. I have been looking for a smoke detector that doesn’t just look like an ugly white plastic box, and today I finally found this smoke detector from Jacob Jensen.
