Skase tea cup set

I'm not much of a tea person but seeing this stylish set designed by Steve Watson I might change my mind. The Skase tea cup set is a beautiful combination between two different materials: a white glazed cup and a Manchurian Walnut cross base. The story behind it? Not so beautiful. Skase tea cup set

Muji wooden toy

These animal inspired wooden toys from Muji are destined as gifts for kids but are far too beautiful and well designed to give them to a child who will only break it in a minute. Wouldn't these better adorn your work desk? The range of models of endangered and extinct species highlights important ecological issues and encourages respect for animals and the environment, says there. Why, sure, I especially love the adorable little dodo.Muji wooden toyPrices: $8.20-$12.30, available at muji.eu.

Chocosho bone-stacking game

Now this is a game perfect for hanging out, I mean there's no fun playing this alone. Who will go: aaaah, don't take that one, oh, no, ooh. In my case I could entertain myself with this Chocosho bone-stacking game but you should play this with the cute guy you've just met and let him win, know what I mean? (You don't?) Anyway, the main idea of this wood bone and skull stacking game is this: you build the tower of bones, then take one out at a time and be careful not to let it fall over. Remove the bones from the middle of the tower and place them on top without the whole tower collapsing. Chocosho bone-stacking game Price: $18, available at chocosho.com

Ralph Lauren home cube puzzle

I love cube puzzles, they’re so fun and relaxing to solve, you forget about everything when start solving them. But the problem with most puzzles is that their charms rarely last, and they don’t make beautiful ornaments around the house (you know those annoying colorful plastic puzzle cubes). Mister Ralph Lauren (well, not him but one of his employees at Ralph Lauren Home) designed a beautiful glass house that, once assembled, it serves as a stylish paperweight or a desk accessory. Ralph Lauren home cube puzzle So, it's like two-in-one piece. Ralph Lauren Home Cube Puzzle, $295, available at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Umbra wobble chess set

I must brag about my chess sets collection, I must have dozens of them at home but this wobble chess set, designed by Adin Mumma is by far the funniest chess set I have ever seen. Wheeee! Now I wouldn't mind being kicked ass at chess, as it always happens, as I would be too busy watching those cute pieces wobbling away. The maple-and-walnut board features concave spaces in which the curved, nickel-bottomed pieces can freely quiver, thus creating a lively interaction between board and pieces. Umbra wobble chess set Table size: 15 x 15" (38 x 38cm). Wobble Chess Set, €275.00, available at Umbra store.

The most stylish acoustic refuge: Sonic Chair

Even in my most daring dream I couldn’t have imagine a giant ear muff you could sit in and listen to loud music without anyone bugging you. Well, maybe that’s why there are awarded designers. Holger Fritzlar and the designatics (Frank Hussong, Michael Kientzler and Daniela Reuter) must have thought at me when building the sonic chair (just kidding). The Sonic Chair allows you to sit at the very centre of a sound system adapted to your ears. The sound insulation creates an acoustic island: what you choose to listen to is hardly perceptible beyond the chair and background noises will not disturb your listen to music/audio book, either. The outside upholstery is made of top-grade leather in four basic colors: orange, green, pink and beige. Sonic Chair – orange

Portable Rotary Phone

The Port-O-Rotary, available now in red, is an original rotary phone that has been specially modified to function like a mobile cell phone. All you have to do is open the phone, insert your SIM card, and turn the unit on which will operate your phone number and account minutes. What keeps the retro mood alive is that this phone has a dial tone, dials out through the rotary and the incoming calls ring the original, loud, gong style metal bells. Its best features: the internal cellular module works within any country that has one of the 900MHz, 1800MHz, or 1900MHz cellular bands and the battery can run for 4-5 days and is charged by an external jack on the rear of the phone.

Glow in the dark deckchair

This is a project developed by a young Argentinean designer named Ignacio Pilotto. It may look as the usual deckchair but it's sure not ordinary. The fabric covering glows in the dark thanks to dozen of luminous inserts. A chair that glows in the dark it's more than useful for a cruise ship and not only. In the case of blackout there will be no problem to find a comfortable seat while waiting for the light...or, if you live in a porch house this chair would make a lovely summer night setting. Just dreaming on... Ignacio Pilotto Deckchair
