What we love ♥♥ in design this week…
♥♥ IKEA has released a new designer cookbook without words. Photographed by Carl Kleiner, it might take some guess work to find out which ingredients are which! Rumor has it that the book, “Hembakat är Bäst” (Homemade is Best), is available for free at IKEA Sweden.
♥♥ Having trouble saving money? Get the Made by Monsters x Ron English Smiley Grin Coinbank, and you’ll want to save every penny.
♥♥ The design savvy folk over at Sneaker Freaker have updated the standard green colour scheme of the SF website to match their latest collaborative sneaker release, Sneaker Freaker x Asics Alvin Purple (the shoes are pretty amazing too!).
♥♥ There’s nothing better than getting in touch with your youth. Some of you might remember before Playstation and XBox there was pinball and Namco, the Japanese gaming house that didn’t just create video games – they created a cultural gaming icon that defined the eighties. And now Moleskine have released a seriously cool limited-edition collection to commemorate the 30 year anniversary of that game – Pac-Man. Embossed and filled with ghosty characters, these hungry notebooks feature back covers printed with traditional video game lines such as “Game Over”, “Insert Coin”, and “High Score.”
♥♥ The clever crew over at NOTCOT have some great ideas, but this week they’ve outdone themselves with their DIY skateboard swing experiment. All you need is a skateboard deck, an IKEA EKORRE swing, a tree and some poor sucker to push!
