On my desk: Muji Notebooks

Muji Notebook

Alyasha brought me back these Muji notebooks from his NY trip last week. These simple little notepads fit perfectly into my back pocket. Great for those, ‘damn I better write this shit down before I forget’ moments. Thanks again dude.

MUJI is simplicity – but a simplicity achieved through a complexity of thought and design. Here are some photos of the New York flagships shops. Designed by Japanese interior architect, Takashi Sugimoto. Definitely check them out whenever you’re in NYC.

Herman Miller vs Modernica Case Study

The are many arguments of how to measure authenticity. Above are Herman Miller (L) and Modernica (R) versions of the Molded Side Chair. The first, is an Eames licensed, sustainable-minded version made out of polypropylene; and the latter, is a process-preserved fiberglass version made the same way they were 50 years ago. Which one would you choose?

On my desk: iPod Shuffle & Do You Matter?

September 27, 2009


The iPod shuffle. Convenient, affordable and comes with an integrated clip. Also on my desk this morning; Robert Brunner and Stewart Emery’s Do you Matter? How Great Design will Make People Love Your Company. The book is a comprehensive review on how design plays a huge role in developing a strong connection between product and customer relationships. The cover of the book is designed by Pentagram Design Studio. Awesome.

Today is my brother’s 30th birthday. Happy birthday ‘bro‘.

APC by way of Supreme

Supreme APC New Standard Jean Touitou James Jebbia

Jean TouitouJames Jebbia. I know that its not much of a collaboration as much as it is a co-branded product, but that’s the way it should be, no? I’m a fan. If you know me, there are 3 things that I’ve worn almost every day for the past 4 years, a beanie, Oliver Peoples glasses, and a pair of APC New Standards. Times need to change, but these jeans are so good.

Canadian Sodium done well. The Salt Tasting Room, Vancouver

September 24, 2009

Salt Tasting Room, Brent Comber, Emeco Stools

I’m fond of the simple nature behind Vancouver’s Salt Tasting Room. The food and wine hideout owned by Scott Hawthorn and Sean Heather takes on a communal approach with their 18ft dinning table designed by Brent Comber. Its shared spaces like these that make connecting dots that much easier. Kudos on the Emeco stools as well.
