Brevity at Fab.com

A quick post as you are hopefully not laboring on this fine Labor Day monday – for 72 hours (well, for 66 hours from the time of this post), select pieces from my Geometric and Lines collections are on sale at Fab.com for up to 40% off. The sale only lasts through Thursday, 11am EST, and all orders placed today ship for free! If you haven’t already heard of Fab, allow me to endanger your wallet by introducing you to an awesome site selling modern design objects/accessories/furniture at a serious discount on a daily basis.

Fab.com is invite only, but if you aren’t already a member, fear not because I have invites! You should be able to sign up via this link. The one bummer – Fab currently only ships domestically, so my apologies to any international folks.

Happy Monday!

Case-Mate iPhone 4 Colorways

These are fun iPhone cases by Case-Mate. The iPhone 4 Colorways combines three primary-colored acrylic pieces which overlap to create new colors.

Milk Design – Lace Vase

To reuse plastic bottles and glass containers in a new way.

R&L Goods

Victorinox – Budding and Pruning Knife

Know someone that needs a budding and pruning knife? Victorinox makes one specifically for that. Nevermind what it’s for, it looks damn smart. I like the brass blade, which is for something having to do with removing bark…

Traditional Greeting – Paulo Bruno for Threadless

One of the coolest hoodies I’ve seen in a while. It may also be the nerdiest – Traditional Greeting on Threadless, designed by Paulo Bruno. Why’s it got to be the asian dude with the nerd glasses doing the Spock thing? I’m just saying…

Pano Candleholders

Gonçalo Campos collaborated with Maria Bruno Néo on a set of porcelain candlesticks. Called Pano, the Portuguese word for cloth, the mold for the candlesticks is made by using cotton fabric soaked with porcelain, which is then dried and fired. During the firing, the fabric is burnt away, leaving just the delicate porcelain. Each candlestick is one of a kind, and I love the juxtaposition between the perceived material, and the actual material.

Swatch – Rankin

Not completely sure if these new Rankin Swatches are cool or actually kinda creepy.
