A great concept where unwanted alarm clocks can be transformed into a reinvented paper incarnation.
When you decide to throw away your alarm clock, please send to us. We will give it a new life for other users.
How could be a valuable object in age of mass production? We were researching to find alternative possibilities. The paper has a lot meaning from history to environmental issue. This product is made from collected paper. The shape is carved with delicacy when the initial shape came out from a mold. It brings you cozy feeling with soft tactile.
Hope you have a warm morning to start with it.

I used to play the French Horn (badly) at school, so it was a delight to see Tom Jarvis’s work at the RCA shows last week. Evidently a designer with a love for the orchestra.
His winning project, Tools To Service An Orchestra, is a series of stunningly intricate yet straight-forward tools to aid the dismantling of jammed trombones and the like: “really this project is about empowering musicians to repair their own instruments, without being reliant on a repair service, which are often very expensive and require a lot of time,” he says.
Jasper Morrison really knows how to put a collection of beauty and utility together.
The designer explains: “‘What are vases? How do they work?’ Those were simple questions I asked myself about this historical object which was created in the Neolithic period.” The simple idea of a vase is to hold flowers, but Archjananun noticed that there are two main parts to a vase: the section that holds the water and the part the holds the stem.
“Weight” brings a new perspective on a vase design by the separation of two different parts which support each other. The water container is made of concrete and the light, airy steel holds the rest of the flower up.
The collection features four vases that can house just a single flower to a bouquet.via Design Milk
I completely fell in love with these pots at the tail end of finishing our house. As soon as I found out I was under budget I just couldn’t resist.
Paris-based designer Eva Rielland has created ‘objects of another age’ as a means of making technology easily understood by all, particularly the elderly. Designed according to observations of real world habits and needs, each of the four objects in this system minimizes use of a graphical user interface (GUI), thus reducing errors and learning curve anxiety.
Rielland focuses on communications features from the world of computers: chatting, writing emails, printing and viewing images. Anchored by formal analogies and familiar gestures, each of these functions are addressed in the objects: ‘frame’ is used for video chat, ‘boite’, or mailbox, is designed for e-mail exchange, and both ‘printer’ and ‘support’ makes digital images tangible. This clear separation of individual functions simplifies bundled features and facilitates the understanding of modern technology.

I am so incredibly touched by the lovely present my intern gave me on her last day. Thanks Ruth!
