I’m digging Jorine Oosterhoff’s Hotel Dinnerware series, designed in collaboration with Egbert-Jan Lam of buroJET. I’m a huge fan of Jorine’s playful Tea Time tableware collection, and this series is designed in the same playful vein.
“All pieces are different characters and turn dinner, breakfast and lunch into a playful yet chic feast meal. The set consist of a dinner set, breakfast set, tea set, coffee set, asian set an a liqueur set. Also the cutlery is specially designed and fits into this dinnerware.”

I’m digging the Lourdes Chair by Peter Pracilio – it’s made from eight found pairs of wooden crutches and some miscellaneous hardware.
Also very cool – Choplery – 100% Bamboo flatware and chopsticks in one – just snap in half and you’re ready to go! I could certainly have used the knife/chop version when I was eating ramen the other day…

Oh my gosh – I love this…Sweet Tear by Jung You. Jung You’s description of the project is a little on the jaded side, but…”It’s for every cup of coffee that is bitter like our lives. It’s a tear of sweet consolation in these short precious moments.”

Tal Mor sent over a link to his industrial design studio – Dag-designlab. There aren’t many projects up yet, but I love what is there, especially these salt shakers – a pebble-like plastic container holds the salt, and a silicone wrapping hides the plastic – you squeeze the shaker to reveal the holes. Seems like a great way to protect your salt from moisture.
Also nice is his Negev Table – a side table/coffee table that was inspired by the Negev desert.
Finally, Tal’s Stopper Postcard – for those of you not satisfied with the post office’s cancellation stamp – the sender hits ‘start’ when the postcard is put in the mail, giving the receiver a way to measure the exact duration of time from when the card left the sender’s hands to the moment that the card is in their own hands…unless of course the postman decides to stop the clock first…
More of Dag-designlab’s work is available here.
