With the High & Dry dish rack, Black + Blum's architectural artistry transcends humdrum household ware into a harmonious form and function showpiece. Intent on turning "something quite mundane into something spectacular," creative partners, Dan Black and Martin Blum, designed a sturdy, sculptural rack with fragile glassware as the protective focus.

The Calatrava-esque solution allows delicate glasses to safely air dry. A sleek cupholder for cutlery adds a design-conscious accent to the accessory, topped off by the rack's spot-on flip up spout for water drainage. Made from easy-to-clean polypropylene and stainless steel, the no-fuss High & Dry offers a collapsible and compact answer to an urbanite's cramped but creative-minded kitchen.

Available in white, green or grey, the High & Dry dishrack retails for $50.
