Alice in Wonderland rings by H.Stern

Alice in Wonderland  released a few months ago, generated the creation of various collectibles. The H.Stern Collection of sculpture-rings reflects fantastic creatures from Tim Burton’s film and includes a cat that glows in the dark. Moving away from the obvious and well known characters of the story, they chose natural elements and spectacular creatures from Wonderland to give shape to ten rings, pieces of art.

Available in two sizes: Extraordinary and Human dimension

Not just another papercut maps

I am just an admirer of the patience of certain designers who, despite spending hours creating a piece, will sell it for pretty much nothing.

Julie is one of these. This French designer behind Famille Summerbelle spent an insane amount of time drawing and cutting beautiful cut out maps of London, New York and Paris.

CitiZ Paris + New York by Nespresso

As a coffee addict, I couldn’t help noticing these two special editions of the Nespresso line CitiZ.

The new Nespresso CitiZ Automatic Espresso Maker range takes its inspiration from the streets. The colors of well-known focal points and objects, the design and shapes of buildings and landmarks, and the urban vibes.  An  exclusive Paris and New York series have been designed by the T.O.T artist collective and are available to order online.

If a London version is being created, I will undoubtably add it to my cluttered kitchen counter.
