old is new once again

old-new-tea-set.jpg

Care for a spot of tea? Designer Christine Misiak, makes the old new. The tea sets are all about re-using things that people throw away and disregard. With this green set, the silver parts were taken from an old battered tea set. She removes the desired components from the old set, cleans, files and sands them. Then she solders them to the bodies that she made herself, therefore creating a mixture of old and new.
The outcome is an aesthetically pleasing design and form which works well, and celebrates the existence of old tea sets.

repaint your apartment again

aura-benjamin-moore.jpg

If you live in NYC you know your apartment has been painted, oh….90,000,000,000 times. And, if the previous occupants liked dark moody color’s it’s going to cost you a penny to remedy the problem. That’s where “Aura” comes in ( and it will cost you a pretty penny as well, $52 bucks a can). This paint promises to be fully washable in any sheen, it features breakthrough ColorLock technology where pigments are microscopically bonded to dry paint film, allowing it to completely obscure dark colors in one coat, with no prime necessary. Benjamin Moore is stepping up the game with this new product and a fancy website to boot! That sure is some big talk for a paint company! Via (uncrate)

Doormat

One of our favorite shops we visited on our recent excursion to Japan was Plus Minus Zero in Aoyama. We were mesmerized by stunning single-slice toasters, 8″ lcd televisions, and fantastic minidisc players, but it wasn’t until we noticed these fantastic “soccer” doormats in varying shapes and portions of the pitch by Etsuya Adachi that we were completely smitten. These and much more available via +-O online shop.
