It doesn't get much better than this. Wow. This was one of those products you see where time stands still while jaw slowly drops and eyes widen.
I was immediately attracted to this stool by the contrasting textures and colour. I could see it was made from one piece and only noticed that it had been burnt by the last image shown.
Breath taking design process and end product. I love this elegant and natural organic shape but especially love that it has a dark element to it's creation.

This alarm clock uses a common electric outlet to allow the user to determine what they shall wake to.
I like this approach as it directs attention away from just sound and thus becoming an interaction where all your senses could be affected. I also really like that there are 2 sockets available. This means you could really mix up what your senses are alerted to. For me, It would be my coffee machine and my lamp.
I am not normally attracted to such a product but I think it works here. If the aesthetics were any different- it would not be as effective and as there is reason to it- it ticks my box.

Combining sleek apple products with simple crafted objects is right up my street and bang on beautiful.
I have always been a fan of Jonas but feel his latest work for frog is inspiring. I partically love the analogue alarm clock where the form of the object, follows the form of the iphone- simplicity is key and this is executed to perfection. This is the beauty of Jonas's work; they are always simple products that are made into elegant pieces.
