This shower wine glass holder is pure genius, especially when you can’t figure out whether it’s bath time or wine time, now you can have both! Get yours right here.
These Wave Hooks were originally designed to be modular and interchangeable, so you can quickly and easily swap the wine glass holder out for a soda or beer can holder instead, without actually removing the suctions cups from the tiles. Tell your loved ones to buy you one for your birthday!
I love this idea!! So clever, one picture & multiple frames… 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 for each building floor. This signage for the home for the elderly in Hottingen, Zurich was esigned by Tina Koyama – Stäheli in collaboration with Aline Dallo, Julia Kind, and Kathrin Urban. You can see the project and read the design team’s rationale over on Behance.
I think this way finding signage design is simple, yet utterly brilliant. It makes art out of something usually considered boring, without losing the overall usability. The use of picture frames creates a homely, comforting impression but the number “jumping” from frame to frame creates surprise and visual interest.
This idea has given me some DIY inspiration – I’d like to try in with a monogram letter for my daughter’s room one day. To make it yourself, first buy some matching frames in various sizes, and lay out the design on a big piece of paper. You could either take a giant print out of one letter, or number, and cut it up, spreading it over multiple frames (the low-tech way). Or you could use InDesign or Photoshop to plan out where you will place the number over your layout, and print each piece individually (the high-tech way). You could try this idea with letters, or numbers, or even a big photograph!
I wish I could personally congratulate the design team on their brilliant design.
Shaped like ripples in the water, this Japanese floating vase allows you to stand a flower upright and float it nonchalantly in the water. This amazing product is simple in concept but brilliant in execution – when in use, it visibly disappears becoming one with the water surface. Simply fill a vessel with water, and float the vase on top with a single flower. The Ripple floating vase was designed by OOdesign Japan and you can purchase your own here.
You know when it’s just you, and maybe your partner, at home and you want to cook a balanced meal with side dishes, but you end up using sooo many extra pans unnecessarily? Of course the Japanese have come up with a solution for this – a sectioned fry pan that lets you cook 3 different dishes at once! Since the original site is in Japanese I’m not entirely sure what the official name of this product is but it could also be called a divided skillet.
This is such an amazing design, isn’t it? Folks in the USA can buy something very similar right here.
Are you imagining what you could cook up in this right now? It would also be a great solution to keep vegetarian and vegetable side dishes separate from the meat.

There is a new site that will anonymously send your enemies glitter in the mail!
Covered by every major news channel around the globe, a new product has taken the world by (glittery) storm within the space of a few days. The ultimate tool for revenge and trolling, you can now anonymously send your foes an envelope filled with glitter, and according to Ship Your Enemies Glitter, your unlucky recipient will be “finding that shit everywhere for weeks.”
According to the website founder Mat Carpenter (who also writes the Sofa Moolah blog), glitter is “the herpes of the craft world” and “that shit gets everywhere”. There is something equal parts delightful and evil about the whole creative concept, not to mention, the copy is brilliant, which is why it has captured the imagination of the entire world in just a few days. We all have enemies, and we all have a love-hate relationship with glitter. And we all know at least one person who deserves some beautifully spiteful, infuriatingly annoying, yet mostly harmless revenge – that we could dish out without being found out. This business concept has completely and utterly nailed it.
After receiving orders in the thousands and making revenue well over AUD $20,000 and counting, the 22-year-old Aussie entrepreneur and creative genius behind the website was forced to stop taking orders, since it was just meant to be a joke and a side project that he was messing around with while still on holidays. To give you an idea of the speed that the website went viral, the domain name shipyourenemiesglitter.com was only registered on 31st December 2014 and is now set to be sold for over USD $70,000 a mere 3 weeks later.
Since glitter mail sales have been paused on the Ship Your Enemies Glitter site and the business is now up sale on Flippa, one competitor website (among many) has sprung up to the challenge of sending glittery hate mail. You can actually send your enemies glitter here.
UPDATE: The website sold for USD $85,000. Not a bad way to make a year’s salary in less than a month. That’s like winning the internet lottery!
When I first saw this picture of a Japanese taiyaki hot cakes, I was immediately captured by how detailed and delicious these traditional sweets looked. I have eaten something similar in Hong Kong, where the edge of the mini pancake is crispy and crunchy to bite into, but the batter in the middle is still soft, sweet and dewy. But the ones in Hong Kong are more like round like little balls, I have never seen the fish shaped pancakes until now. And of course, I’m hungry just looking at them… anyone else craving to have a bite of a fish shaped pancake, like I am now?
If you want try making your own at home, you can buy a Taiyaki maker here.*

The Copco Bag Cap seals in the freshness of bagged foods without removing the item from the original packaging. Absolute genius! I could use a few of these in my pantry. It’s basically a lid that you affix to the top of chip or crisp packets, sugar bags, snack packets, or any kind of packaging to keep the contents fresh and easy to dispense without having to transfer your food to another container. I’m impressed by the smart design, and have even seen the variation of a coffee bag cap with scoop available on Amazon as well as the small and medium sized bag caps.
