“Reductionism is about taking away excess in design,” says Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s Chief Design Officer, and the Range Rover Velar, the brand’s newest vehicle, delivers on that maxim. From its debut at the London Design Museum to our first...Read More
by Sun Bak In a time when people seem to pause only to snap the picturesque, new photo book "Mean Streets: NYC 1970-1985" is an important reminder to take off the smartphone-induced blinders. The book is compiled of largely never-before-printed...Read More
"Projects like this, as a designer, are a dream. Everyone wants to draw sporty cars," says Sebastiano Russo, an Audi designer whose sketches helped land him a spot on one of Audi's most exciting cars, the new Audi A7 fastback. Audi invited us to their...Read More
It's a tale of two cities: The Glad House, the silk pajama-makers based in LA, stocked at the one-floor Austin Motel. The blood red fingernails on this silk eye mask match the red-orange vinyl cushion bed-frames and lip-shaped bedside phones—and signal the wrath to come of whoever disturbs thy beauty sleep. It's a hotel-level amenity worth bringing home.
Partnering with German clockmaker Hubert Herr, Best Made Co has produced a limited edition, fully mechanical cuckoo clock (that must be wound once a day). It's been handmade in Germany's Black Forest, with fir and birch sourced from the country. Herr is the only person to produce such a clock entirely in-house today. It's as intricate as it is charming—and it chimes every 15 minutes.
HAY's minimalist, architecture-inspired designs continue to impress, this time with their multi-tasking Clip Clip Spoon. The clever kitchen utensil doubles up as a measuring spoon and a clip that can seal a bag—whether it's coffee, sugar or anything else that needs measuring and sealing. Not only is it functional, but it looks sophisticated in a brass-colored stainless steel.
Philadelphia's Three Potato Four has a wide range of retro hotel-inspired key rings, but this year they have released a catchy, limited edition style just for the holiday season. Available in white on pink, or red on white, they say "Naughty" on one side and "Nice" on the other. Made in the USA.
Master & Dynamic's flagship MW60 wireless over-ear headphones are now available in a few new colorways for their 2017 holiday capsule collection, including olive green, camouflage, and black on black leather. As expected, the high-quality headphones still deliver impeccable sound drawn in part from patent pending stainless steel componentry. The new styles, though, make clear reference to the brand's home city: NYC.
Inspired by Jim Henson's beloved television show "Fraggle Rock," a metaphor for diversity and cohabiting peacefully, Brooklyn chocolatiers the Mast Brothers have released five limited edition bars, each featuring a different character. The brand selected five of their favorite varieties to adorn with characters for this collaboration. A portion of all proceeds benefits The Jim Henson Foundation and the Museum of the Moving Image, where the bars are sold—as well as at the Mast Flagship store in Brooklyn.
Of course the actual fragrances of BYREDO's new range of room sprays are the most important, but the oversized black glass bottles are so sophisticated that you'll want to have it on display. Available in Bibliotheque, Cotton Poplin and Tree House, the perfumes are subtle but pretty. Our choice is Tree House, which has notes of bamboo, myrrh, leather and cedar. Price is in Euros.
Made in the USA, United by Blue's Bison Quilted Throw Blanket features B100 insulation, drawn from 60% Bison fiber and 40% regenerated polyester. It measures 50 by 70 inches, and an eight-inch baffling reflects classic design. Adaptive warmth is key here and the brand—known for its durability—never fails to deliver.
To kick off Magic Hour Photo Club, Booooooom's forthcoming series of photography projects, they've launched with a 100% cotton snapback hat. The limited edition item features a woven label, small camouflage tag, and front and side embroidery. For photographers who dream of the magic hour, it's a nice addition to one's outfit when shooting.
Brandon Maxwell's collaborative earrings with the Lunch at the Ritz jewelry brand by Zander Elliott shift—legs, tails, head and more—as the wearer moves. There's a ferocious charm to the whole range, sold exclusive on Maxwell's site, but the Panther and its ready-to-pounce look really captivates. The pieces will only be produced until 20 November 2017—and each is handmade in the US, meaning no two are exactly the same.
Full of unique, influential and fascinating concrete structures in Tokyo, this guidebook is in Japanese and English, and aimed at locals and visitors alike. With maps to striking buildings designed by Tadao Ando, Le Corbusier, Tengo Kanze and more, the book is edited by Naomi Pollock and features photography by Jimmy Cohrssen. Price is in Euros.
A high-capacity universal battery, Mophie's latest Powerstation comes with both a USB-C output port and an additional USB-A output port. As far as power goes, there's enough here to charge a MacBook entirely, with some energy left over for other devices. The USB-PD tech within also allows for rapid charging, moving up to 30 watts at a time. Never one to ignore visual design, the Mophie team wrapped the device in a premium fabric. It's also 25% smaller than a standard portable charger with equivalent power.
With a 6'4" tripod height, a vast basin and even larger diameter, Cowboy Cauldron's Ranch Boss can hold a number of full logs and create a perimeter large enough for a whole family to sit around and enjoy. This is an outdoor tool for grilling on, cooking in or simply for taking in warmth while outside. Each cauldron has been crafted from solid, seamless, high-tensile plate steel—and while that alludes to its functionality and durability, it's also a beast of simple beauty.
Our Lady of Guadalupe has appeared everywhere from prayer candles to skate decks. Now, artist and professional skateboarder Jason Jessee has lent his rendition to Nixon watches for a new iteration of their 37mm Time Teller wristwatch. The art pops against the gold dial, case and five-link bracelet. Altogether it's a fun but respectful play on the icon.
The stack of cookbooks gathering dust on the counter indicates that they're more food porn-turned-coffee-table-read than actually useful come dinnertime. Samin Nosrat's photography-free, anti-recipe cookbook "Salt Fat Acid Heat" is a guide to really understanding the science of cooking—like how to use salt better (the right amount, the right time, the right form), or just how balancing a couple drops of vinegar can be to soup. Offering less instruction and more intuition, the illustrated manual might be the final addition ever to your cookbook collection.
Produced and assembled in Italy, Yniq goggles for skiing and snowboarding blend a luxury aesthetic with functional components seamlessly. Protecting against harmful UV rays, the goggles offer an extreme peripheral field of vision and an anti-fog coating—so you'll see more no matter the mountain conditions. Anti-scratch, the lenses come in several different tints but we can't go past this intense orange iteration. Price is in Euros.
From Nau's recent fall 2017 collection, the Boiled Wool Jacket builds a refined, tailored aesthetic from a rugged, hearty fabric. A true fall-to-winter coat, the Tirol-style 100% boiled wool piece effectively combats changing weather. Nuances like the raw-edged seams, slender fit and fabric stand collar make it unlike any other jacket out there. It's a handsome, effective piece of outerwear.
From Clarks' brand new Privo collection—blending a minimal aesthetic with their ever-innovative engineering—comes the new Privo Slope. These are everyday-worthy low boots that can safely tackle winter: weatherproof, waterproof and featuring an insulated heat-retaining lining. The design aesthetic draws upon an alpine hiker silhouette—and with a comfortable EVA midsole and removable OrthoLite footbed, it's light enough to trek through the worst of it.
The Ed Banger Records team chose their favorite AIAIAI headphones, the TMA-2, which have been upgraded with a new reinforced PU headband for the collaborative release. The headband comes complete with a thick foam padding for more comfortable wear during long sessions. Delivering plenty of bass and clear sound, these headphones also come with two cables and a special edition Ed Banger carrying pouch to seal the deal.
Designed by the team at Behance and based on the Action Method (which is, in essence, breaking down projects into their primary components), the Action Book is more than a typical notepad. Sections exist on each page for dates, times and notes, but there are also defined areas to write down your action steps and even items on the back burner. Printed on 80lb via vellum cool white, the spiral bound notebook has 50 pages to help users tackle their future projects.
