Why should your pooch eat from the floor while you drink your espresso - IBIZA cafe??? - served on your beloved “adjustable table“?

You don’t know Eileen Gray’s “adjustable table”? Shame on you!! First check out Classicon and Vitra to fill your knowledge gaps on classic furniture!!!

Back to your buddy…

Why shouldn’t he relish from a modern peace of “LexViola” furniture as you do?

Sushi-TendenceSince this spring Leonhard Pfeifer’s “sushi board” has shown up several times in design magazines.

As Leonhard told me yesterday, his sushi board is ready to sell now!

Biggest plus: the sushi board is incredibly space saving on a small table or a bar.

It is supplied with 2 sets of chopsticks, each plate has an integrated soy sauce bowl and the board is finished with a non-toxic lacquer. He named it a sushi board, but - combining style with function - of course it’s just as useful for cheese and crackers, tapas, canopes - in fact you could use it to serve everything except soup.

Price: approximately 70€

Uhh… another lovely gem that caught my eyes during my Tendence’s reconnaissances:

IbizacafeI already raved of Ibiza a few days ago… but the fact that Cafes Ibiza is a leading company in its field with a long tradition in the roasting and manufacture of finest coffees… that was new to me. They were born in nineteen-fifty and since then, they have been selecting the finest harvests to offer us their Balearic flavor.

First to say: I like the design of their packaging!!! Buy 20 packs and decorate them in one of your open kitchen cabinets …looks great! - that’s how they were presented at the fair.

IglooMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMI love Clio for their wonderful selection of products, but I just got the Igloo candles last weekend as a gift for a weekend party, and this is probably one of the sweetest little ideas I have seen in a long time. A simple cheap candle is hidden under a cute little dome and voilá: a wonderfully warm glow emits from underneath… But don’t just get one, you’ll need a couple to really make it a nice presentation… Also works well as a reading light next to your bed, as it is not too bright and not flickering even though your window is open…

What’s the time please …

Buckle

Alessi has been making watches for quite some time now, and for their fall/winter collection they got a hold of Patricia Urquiola’s amazing talent again. She is best known for her furniture designs for the who is who of italian furniture designers (B&B, Molteni & c., Moroso, Kartell and many others) and for her amazing showrooms and trade shows for Knoll and Sag 80 among others. She was featured in the International Design Yearbook and was a lecturer at the famed Domus Academy. Now she returned to Alessi to design the ‘Buckle’. The underlying principle is that of a - buckle - duh. This way you are not bound to the wristband, but are free to attach it to plenty other bands as well. The black and white version is beautifully simplistic, if you demand more attention, go for the red version which has a red face as well. A list of worldwide retailers can be found here: Alessi

UntitledMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
German pocket knife masters Reichartz are constantly developing new products - mostly pocket knives, which is not really my terrain, but here is an extremely beautiful travel manicure set. Not just does it match your Tumi travel set perfectly, it also has a very ingenious closure and presentation mechanism - only german engineers would think of such a solution - and what can I say, the products actually work well too. Haven’t found a retailer in the US yet, but will update you once I find one. If anybody has seen them here I’d appreciate a quick note.

Backgammon Falke… and rustic luxury: the Falke Cottage Sock

Be prepared for the first cold days coming up soon. Recently - here in Germany - we already felt like being in mid autumn, whereas today was fine and sunny!!

Falke provides something very special for spending long autumn and winter days by the fireplace: Their Cottage Sock, an elegant pure new wool homesock featuring a genuine leather sole is ideal for self-confessed cocooners.

The high quality, rustic style lodge socks are available in warm red and orange shades, earthy brown, stone-blue and grey-melange.

The attractive packaging of the cottage sock also combats inherent autumn melancholy. The exclusive wooden box doubles as a backgammon game, and is thus ideal as a gift. The board consists of soft velour; the tokens and dice are packed in a dignified pochette.
