Wow, what a long break it has been! Let’s get right back in the groove and get to our first order of business. Back in 2008, I promised we would write more about the work of two French designers, Sophie Roberty and Christophe Beauséjour, better known as Créa Créa. I am about to make good on that promise.
The object I selected for today’s post is an accessory for the now near-ubiquitous tablet…

If you love and respect your cat, you might want to give him or her a personal seat. Prrrounge available at Kittypod.com (design by Elizabeth Paige Smith) is an elegant addition to any living room…

If you’re going to make a waffle, make it a cute one - at least, that’s what I’ve always said... But you need the right tools to do that, of course, which is why I was so excited when I found out about Sunbeam’s Woddles.
This device makes penguin-shaped waffles that look so cute you might have second thoughts about eating them (ok, may be not)…
(More penguin cuteness after the jump)

Don’t know about you guys, but I have a problem with stuff sprawl. Add to this recurring client and collaborator meetings (for those of us working from home) and you have a recipe for a messy home/office.
The issue, basically, is that anybody coming to your home office needs some space to put his/her: cell phone, car keys, bag, coat, gloves, sunglasses, organizer, and so on. Normally, this stuff gets thrown on the couch, piled up on chairs or (worse) ends up on the floor. What a mess!

If you’re an avid gamer or simply comfortable using joystick as your preferred input device, you might want to consider extending this interface to your bathroom as well.
Techno M10 bath and shower mixers use joystick as the design paradigm.

French product designers Sophie Roberty and Christophe Beauséjour (aka Créa Créa) have been living and working together for the last ten years. More importantly, in those ten years they designed a multitude of cute everyday products to be used in your kitchen and garden.
I am sure we’ll be coming back to this mini-team and their creations regularly, but today I wanted to show you their collection of toasters. Take a look:

The Chain lamp, designed by Ilaria Marelli Studio
for Nemo / Cassina
does away with the traditional desk lamp form - in fact, it can assume radically different forms as your work requires, since it’s composed of three links connected with flexible joints (plus the base). The design intentionally avoids the “office” look and even evokes the image of a jewel box.

It is widely known that some flowers - roses in particular, have thorns. Yet, for some reason, the vases we put those flowers into are usually suspiciously smooth. Japanese designer Ikuko Iwamoto decided to challenge that outdated notion by designing a vase that shows a little more character - perhaps befittingly if the owner’s temperament is as prickly. The result is the Pofupofu Flower Vase…
