Stuff Crush; 8.5.12


These key-hole bridged unisex sunglasses, now on sale, come in two very chic colours; black with green tinted lenses and brown with photochromic lenses. Having collaborated with French style gurus A.P.C, these on-trend glasses are handmade in Italy by L.G.R (Luca Gnecchi Ruscone).


This first came to our attention at the Stockholm Furniture Fair back in February. Created by Daniel Rybakken and Andreas Engesvik for Asplund, the tray acts as an artificial surface veiling the electrical components whilst the pale green and yellow hand-blown glasses, make for an instantly classic twist.


With more powerful precision-tuned drivers and dual passive bass radiators (nope, us neither) for bigger sound, this is just like the Jambox you know and love, but bigger and packing a little more punch with a stunningly clear sound at any volume. Available in graphite, white, and red.

Young designer Alex Gibson has a Tumblr called Bad Smelling Boy, flooded with his designs for t-shirts and sweaters – we’re just upset that his Cassette Playa-esque works are not yet in production.

£We Wish


Whether you stand for peace, love or temptation? Jonathan Adler has super slick objets d’art for all three. Although it must be said, we’re just loving the imposing 2-fingered peace hand at the moment. Jonathan – peace out!



Having featured his 2010 World Cup football stickers – which he designed in a bid to raise money for the local hospital who helped his newly born daughter – Elliott Quince is back with a hand-illustrated wallchart for the Euros. An amusing and vibrant way of keeping up with the proceedings, and cheap as chips too.

This elegant object is not only damn fine to look at, it’s functional too. Designed primarily as a laptop desk, the shelf along the bottom doubles its usefulness in providing a small space to store reading materials.



We introduced you to their shower curtains in an earlier Stuff Crush so it was only natural we’d be keeping an eye on the masculine whimsical objects from Izola. Made of 100% natural cotton, the O’Pioneers Handkerchief would look very dapper donned in the breast pocket of a suit (or maybe more our style) the back pocket of your jeans and is perfect for fusing form and functionality.

Set of three $40.00


Toronto based graphic designer, Tahir Mahmood‘s Mortar and Pestle collection is now available from a company who certainly know a thing or two about contemporary design; Caviar20. Made of Dalbergia Sissoo wood (native to the Indian Subcontinent, often referred to as “Indian Rosewood”) and shaped using the ancient technique of lathe turning, this collection comes in an array of vibrant colours and sizes to suit your kitchen. We particularly like Bhadon.
