Hendrick's
Petite Garnisher
$200

Masters of the unusual, Hendrick's Gin has released a handmade cocktail garnisher. The metal piece slices two cucumbers simultaneously into the ideal 1/8 wheel—all with the turn of a crank. While far from being a necessary home bar accessory, the item demonstrates a need to think outside of the box when crafting a cocktail and it mirrors the world's largest cocktail garnisher which (Hendrick's invented) is driving around the country at present. This is for the true cocktail enthusiast. It's expected to ship in August 2017.

Phaidon
Ornament is Crime: Modernist Architecture
$34

The stunning hardcover pairs text from resonant, related figures with black-and-white photographs of prime examples of the style. More than a guide, this book demonstrates why modernism remains relevant to us today—both as makers and observers.

The Wing
Internet Herstory T-Shirt
$40

Manhattan's women-centric co-working and community space, The Wing, is about to expand to Brooklyn and DC.

The boxy cut makes it unisex, so this is certainly for feminists of all genders.

Mr Porter
Ressence Type 1 MRP
$20,600

Since their launch in 2010, Ressence—designer Benoît Mintiens's groundbreaking watch brand—has continued to release pieces that defy the ordinary, employing a unique disc-based mechanical system and a minimal, geometric aesthetic to match. In 2015, men's style destination Mr Porter began to stock the brand and now the two have united for a limited edition collaborative collection, in two styles. Our personal favorite, the Type 1 MRP in grade-five titanium features a night-blue metallic dial. A 42mm case holds the brand's proprietary ROCS 1 module, which powers the timepiece. Only 12 of these watches will be produced.

In contrasting blue and neon green acrylic, the statement-making (and stackable) piece was hand-assembled. All of the work—from construction to sanding and polishing—takes place in Rabbitneck's Red Hook, Brooklyn studio.

L'Epée 1839 by Fiona Krüger
The Vanitas Clock
$43,700

Beyond its uncommon shape (a signature of the Fiona Krüger brand), the Vanitas wall clock truly impresses with its vivid interior color profile. The result of a collaboration between namesake watchmaker Fiona Krüger and historic manufacturer L'Epée 1839, the Vanitas is an engineering feat with a movement that matches the case (with an escapement appearing as the third eye). As time passes—with the piece offering more than 35 days running time before needing to be wound—the mouth changes and the lips part. This iteration (there's also an all-black version) is limited to 50 pieces.

Greens Steel
Stainless Steel Straws
$10

According to various studies, Americans alone use some 500 million straws every day, and almost every single plastic straw ever made (regardless of whether it's been recycled) still exists in some way on this planet. One little, and very easy, step we can all take to lessen the waste, pollution and eight million tons of plastic trash that ends up in our oceans is adopting reusable straws. This set of four stainless steel straws (two curved, two straight) are BPA-, phthalate-, lead and toxin-free, and will never rust. They even come with a little brush to make cleaning them extra simple.
