Searching in the Rain is a light and comfortable PVC raincoat and a turist map as well. During rainy days it's very hard to handle a map and to keep oneself dry at the same time. With Searching in the Rain you have just to turn upside down the front bottom lip to read the map printed on it. The same map is also printed on the backside, helping anyone who stay behind us to read map informations. Such a funny way to meet new people, isn't it?

I don't know if a wine in a can works as good as the one in a bottle. I am no expert at all to judge and verify which packaging works better for the product, but it sure comes in handy when you don't have to carry a big glass bottle when you're heading for a picnic! The Otherwine aluminium can holds the equivalent of two glasses of wine (250 ml) - just right in my opinion to feel good in the afternoon.
OTHERWINE dare to create a range of wines in cans deliberately "personal" and advocates a single credo: have fun. With 25cl, OTHERWINE can is ideal for any occasion: Alone or with friends, at home or in the great outdoors!
This asmazing pc was featured on many design websites this week, but I couldn't resist in case any of you had missed it! (I was lucky enough, my cousin brought my attention to it). Lately it seemed the only interesting computer design could be produced by Apple, but hey, here's something even better. Designed by an American studio Schultzworks the Philco PC was inspired by the 1950’s Philco Predicta, a design classic. This original design received Top Three honors in a competition. The keyboard looking like a typewriter? Absolutely ♥ it! Oh, there are detailed photos and a videoafter the break. Be smart and continue reading then.
I recently bought an apartment and although there's still a couple of months ahead of me before I can move in, I already plan what it is going to look like. My funds are somewhat limited after paying the downpayment, so I'm not going to be able to buy all the designer furniture I would like to. I decided however to buy at least one beautiful chair. There is something about chairs that makes me ♥ them, for the way they can combine beauty and function. This design classic doesn't need introduction, it's RAR by Ray and Charles Eames. It's hard to believe in a way it was designed so many years, even decades, ago and it still gives you goose bumps when you look at it. I ♥ the fact that it rocks - literally. And the construction of the bottom was inspired by the Eifell Tower. I just haven't decided on th colour yet...
Plastic Armchairs were first presented as part of the famed New York Museum of Modern Art competition, "Low Cost Furniture Design". Their organically shaped seat shells made of fibreglass-reinforced plastic were later combined with various different bases, such as RAR's rockers and manufactured in their millions. In their latest version made of polypropylene the Armchairs now offer even greater sitting comfort.

Do you remember the post about Coarse Toys? I will forgive you if you don't, but you have to check it out (here)! And right now some Coarse Toys updates - their new series called false friends. No sharks or blood, instead a rabbit that looks like the one from Donnie Darco, right? And also, would you look at that naked toy's six-pack.... Anyways, the toys seem to be so popular that new series is limited to 1 figure per household. God, just like in the communist times in Poland! I thought these days were long gone.
After the break there is a story about the false friends characters.

Winter is coming along and I am sure I will spend a big part of it watching my favourtie tv shows. A much as TV can wash your brain out, the advertisement for it is not always that bad. I ♥ these posters by Exergian - they prove the thought should always come first before the design. Make sure you see them all and continue reading after the break!
