Gothic Glow

gothicglow.jpgPerhaps even above the proper soundtrack, light is the key ingredient to a successful domain (work, play or otherwise). It's time to head back to the lab with these clever lights from Gothic Glow.  With steampunk all the rage, you'll be able to accessorize with a subtle nod to Artemus Gordon.

Telectroscope

A piece of art that warms our heart.

"Hardly anyone knows that a secret tunnel runs deep beneath the Atlantic Ocean. In May 2008, more than a century after it was begun, the tunnel has finally been completed. An extraordinary optical device called a Telectroscope has been installed at both ends which miraculously allows people to see right through the Earth from London to New York and vice versa."

Telectroscope Site

This is our new favorite magazine, Monocle. "A fresh focus on global affairs, business, culture, design and all you need in life." We'll let their site speak for itself. The print publication is very elegant, very beautiful and well worth a few page turns.

iPhone Gloves

dots-gloves.jpgI'm sure it has plagued us all, those cold days walking down the street trying to make a call or send a text, the great debate. Take off the glove or just keep going.

DOTS has brought a simple solution to hand. Take a gander. Their metal-tipped knit-wear will transfer the conductivity to the sensitive touch screen. Dial away.

The Wolseley

wolseleycake.jpg

Alas, we haven't had the opportunity to visit in person, but if the cake stand alone is any indication, it is not to be missed.

"The Wolseley was created by Chris Corbin and Jeremy King in 2003 in the style of the Grand Café normally only found on the Continent. The original building was commissioned in 1921 by Wolseley Cars as their West End showroom and was designed by William Curtis Green in the Art Deco style of the time. In keeping with the Grand Cafe tradtion and to match the opulence of the interior, a range of equipment inspired by the era was sourced, some antique and others bespoke."

The Wolseley has started a web store to sell selections of their exceedingly popular table and glassware. The Black & White Cake Stand with Cloche is £165.00.

jacobs-lv.jpgThis very charming documentary by French filmmaker Loïc Prigent, follows uber-fashion maven, Marc Jacobs through the creation and presentation of the Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuiton Spring Collections 2007 (with a brief stop in Tokyo where they staged a recreation of the Fall 2006 LV collection - and a mad party).

iGDT

igdt.jpgWe will keep software recommendations to a bare minimum on these pages but, I've been meaning to drop a note on this morsel for quite some time. iGTD is a task-managment application designed by a boy-genius from Wroclaw, Poland. Bartek Bargiel, a mac enthusiast and mensch, created this little application and has unleashed it on the world as donationware. I am not going to get into the minutia of what it does, suffice it to say, it works. And it works very, very well. It is the embodiement of modern design in code. Simple, elegant, form from  function.
