I have always believed that good design should be functional, beautiful and practical. The HANG wall hooks from Italian design house Seletti fulfill all these conditions.
The letters are 8” tall, and come with all the requisite hardware required for installation. You can buy the set here for $68.
I just dig the Sweeney Todd reference on this totally sweet-looking Razorblade Mirror from Suck UK. I’m not totally sold on the functionality part, but would still love to own one.
The mirror is priced at £75.00 (or about $149).
The ‘Toast Messenger’ allows you to burn your custom messages in your own handwriting onto slices of ordinary bread.
If you hate the mess created by tangled cables, you will just love this. The sleek-looking Cablebox cable organizer from BlueLounge is a great combination of form and function.
Made from fire retardant plastic, the aesthetically designed box is large enough to fit surge protectors and power strips of all shapes and sizes.
You can pre-order the CableBox for $ 29.95 at the site.
A Tangram is a Chinese puzzle made by cutting a square into five triangles, a square, and rhombus. The pieces must be arranged to form a shape of some sort.
Italian Designer Daniele Lago used the Tangram concept to design these uber-cool bookshelves. The shevles, like the puzzle itself, can be arranged to form various designs.
One more pic after the jump.
I found this this funky looking "Splash Lounge Chair" created by designer Michael Wendel on the Yanko Design site.
Wendel was probably inspired by shots of water/milk splashes captured with high speed photography.
Shtrikh Kod (Barcode) is an unique, one-of-a-kind tribute to capitalism located in St. Petersburg, Russia (of all places.)
The brightly colored mall, designed by architectural studio Vitruvio and Sons, provides some much needed visual-relief to the drab skyline of the residential area it is situated in.
This funky looking chair was designed by award winning artist Oki Sato of Nendo Inc.
Influential fashion designer Issey Miyake, the curator of the XXIst Century Man exhibition in Tokyo, asked Nendo to produce a chair out of pleated paper, and so, the design firm came up with the unique looking chair.
A well designed business card is a great way to make a good first impression on people.

These uber-cool ‘Knife Hooks’ were designed by TC Studio, a design firm based in the United Kingdom.
The coat hooks are made of polyurethane and steel, and are available only in matte black. There is an option to buy them online at Bouf for a pricey $ 50 apiece, but they are currently out of stock.
