When it comes to design, bathrooms no longer have to be ignored thanks to companies like Inbani. The Spain-based company focuses on modern bath fixtures and accessories, and their New Norm Bath Collection will make you want to throw out that old cup you’re using to hold your toothbrushes immediately.
Designed by architects Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn, of NORM Architects, the five piece collection is both sleek and minimal, stripping away all unnecessary decoration and leaving a functional series.
The set comes with everything you need, including a pedal trash can, toilet brush, soap dispenser, toothbrush cup, and storage vessel with a small mirror.
Available in black or white, each piece features the same silhouette making the collection cohesive.
When I stumbled upon a package of 12 mini cats on Amazon, they were in my cart before you could say, “Who would order a bunch of miniature plastic cats?” I figured that when it came to mini cats, one should buy first and think later. It only took a minute of having these beauties in my possession to come up with a project. After years of keeping all my photos online only, I’ve been on a kick of printing out photos and sticking them to my refrigerator. I decided that these mini cats would make the perfect magnets. It’s my favorite kind of project — super simple and cat inspired. (Oh and if you’d like to do this with dogs, I’ve got you covered right here.) — Amy Azzarito
Ukrainian designer Vasiliy Butenko set out to challenge himself by creating a table lamp under these strict guidelines: use few parts, easy assembly, and optimum functionality. He achieved all that and then some with Table Lamp “OOO”.
Inspired by modern design from the 1920s, where creating simple design can oftentimes require complicated structure, he wanted to look at things in a different way. Using a 1mm thick plate for the top part of the lamp and 3mm thick plate for the base, that are then connected by a tube, the lamp’s only other parts are two magnets, a screw, and a lightbulb.
The bright yellow lamp swivels with the help of two powerful neodymium magnets. Level the top circular disc flat for the light to resemble a table and give you a night-light type feel.
Angle the disc slightly and it’s perfect for working at a desk or reading.
Or aim it vertically for a decorative look.
The light comes out from underneath the top disc, so adjust the direction as you see fit.
Consisting of four wooden legs with some adjustable ratchet buckles, you can create a comfortable place to sit with old newspapers, clothes, stuffed animals, a tree stump, a crate, just about whatever you can imagine…
TheStooler will be exhibited at the Temporary Museum for New Design of SuperStudio during the this year’s Salone in Milan.
