Cite from the site:

We use books that, for various reasons, have been discarded by libraries, book shops, and thrift stores. By the time we get to them, they have already had booksellers, appraisers, and charitable organizations comb through their collections. We do not destroy rare or high-value books. We are often the last stop before the dump or recycling station. We are book lovers and it is our goal to put books back on the shelf, in a form that meets our modern needs. Whether because of a funny book title, a Bin’s color palette, or the simple pleasure of the touch and feel of an old book, we have found that in this new form, books continue to bring joy into our customer’s homes. In addition, a portion of our proceeds from sales are donated to the Books for Kids Foundation.

Pliè, the modern minimalist shower column by Treesse is what i wish to have. Pliè means folded (in french), is quite the appropriate name for this shower column as its head can be tilted from its upright position to a perfect 90 degree angle.

With Pliè you get the exact stream direction you need. You can choose a lot of colors as you can see, or even brushed aluminum or steel – one of which is sure to fit your taste. Visit Treesse website for additional information.

Skeleton Stairway

Written by willbe in Art, Design

I really love this! Sculptural staircase made of glass and timber by Philip Watts design. This is something unique and never seen before. But it also so natural! Spine is a base with steps, ribs are railing. Clean art and nothing frightening as ancient dinosaur’s bones.

Sometimes easiest way to get something fresh – to look on things around you upside down!

Bring an alien creature to your home! Italian-Singaporean design firm Lanzavecchia + Wai has created unusual pieces of furniture, which look like aliens. They use stretchy fabric to form a chair, bookcase and cabinet.

You know I like miscellaneous party gadgets like bottle openers. So I found a webstore with lot of interesting favors, such as bottle openers, place card holders, or disposable cameras (just imagine all your guests taking photos of yours!).

If you’re going to have a big party or even looking for bridesmaid gifts or favors for your wedding party it is the best place for you!

Here some items I like most:

 

Wine cork place card holder

Wine set

Disposable cameras

Shoe bottle opener

Faceless Led Watch

Written by willbe in Design, Fashion, Watches

Look at Faceless Led Watch made by Japanese designers.

Part of apertures of metal band became digital display screen. Metal band and digital figures mingle together in proportion naturally. Without the face of “timepiece”, it displays figures only when needed but also quite vague existence, “time”.

Buy cheap Faceless Led Watch here for 16.60 only!

Pixel Clock

Written by willbe in Design

The Pixel Clock is designed by Francois Azambourg. Face in honeycomb-effect fibreglass with 300 LED’s, encircled by a satin white lacquered steel bezel. Equipped with a switch to turn the LED’s on or off, and a transparent cable to allow it to be plugged into a socket if not wired directly into the wall.

This remind me another version of “pixeled” clock by Draft:

Desktop Backwords

Written by willbe in Design, Fun

We all used to think that computer desktop icons looks like real folders, documents and recycle bins. Now we can see a “reverse engineering” for those icons. Yellow folders can be attached to big blue “background”.

The modern folder for the old fashioned way of filing – giving you a piece of the virtual in the real world. Write-on magnetic stripes enable a variable filing system as they can be easily exchanged and replaced. A Ctrl Z for real stuff.

These fun folders are made by German design company haseform.de.
