po/9311. disc.

If you've got a spare $496 and need a place to store your keys that looks like a keyhole and sounds like PO/9311 Disc, check out this bargain! Oddly enough, this item has been discontinued (perhaps they are not selling like pancakes?), but you can still find it in stock. Comes in aluminum or bright yellow lacquer. I like the aluminum myself.

dead. fred. pen. holder. (happy. halloween.)

Here is your obligatory Halloween-time post: Dead Fred. Stab him in the heart and he'll hold your pen for you. Don't worry, it won't hurt him...he's made of silicone rubber.

3 minus 1 desk.

Richard Hutten's 3 Minus 1 Desk is definitely a looker and pretty convenient if you're always going into and out of your drawers. It's laminated so you can choose a lot of different wood grains and color, but if I read the text correctly there are also solid wood versions. Nice! Will run you from $2,250 to $3,500 with free shipping.

I'd like to tell you what Birth is, but frankly it's a littler hard to figure out (although I like it!). It's some kind of reconfigurable chair/bench/table/sideboard thingie that can be arranged in a variety of pretty shapes. The only descriptive text I found for it is "price shown for individual piece in matte lacquer finish. also available in wood, polished lacquer, or macroter." Each piece of birth will run you $1,150.

urinal. sculptures.

Clark Sorenson is a genius when it comes to creating his Urinal Sculptures but the guy really needs a new name for these things because "urinal" and "sculpture" are not words that really go together. On the other hand the words "urinal" and "spectacular" don't often go together, but here they do. His site says "They are made of the same material as a commercial toilet but the similarity stops there. Clark hopes that his sculptures can be exhibited as art and installed as urinals in galleries and bathrooms around the world." This artwork will run you $6,500 to $10,500 depending on if you want the Calla Lilly version or the Red & Yellow Tulip. I think I'm an Orange Hibiscus man myself...

laundry. rug.

I'd like to think I don't need the oh-so-clever Laundry Rug but I have to be honest with you, I'd get a lot of use out of it. Instead of throwing your dirty clothes in a hamper, you chuck them on the Laundry Rug, which then magically turns into a laundry bag. Well, okay, not uses cords. Just £30, although it's not currently in stock. (If I actually threw my clothes in my hamper I might not need this, but that rarely happens, so I do.)

Olivier Gregoire created this amazing semi-formless piece of furniture called Tapisofa that can be a couch, chair, lounge or whatever else you can think long as it's in a corner. It's actually "a carpet with an unpredictable natural shape" and it "can be modulated thanks to it's [sic] soft frame." Brilliant. Unfortunately it's only a concept at this stage.
