Kouichi Okamoto

Kouichi Okamoto

I’m loving the work of Japanese designer Kouichi Okamoto that I found on Design Boom today. I’m especially fond of the glass tank pictured below. It works with air and water pressure. when emptying the glass, the tank re-fills it with a constant amount of liquid, without flowing over the brim. I know my friend...

Pentawards 2008

The results are in for the Pentawards 2008. Heres my personal favorites out of the bunch: These tortilla chips for tesco made me laugh. Each pack has a different variation on the character. The cool flavor wears some mean shades! Love the packaging to these herbs for Waitrose, but I see more than a resemblance...

Aeron Chair

Aeron Chair

I keep waking up with a back every morning. I’m not sure whether it’s my bad posture through sitting at a desk most of the day. Either way I know one of these would help. The AERON chair by Herman Miller is the pinnacle of office chairs and is used in many graphic studios (who...
