Makaon; Empty Can Craft

Japanese artist Macaon recycles used pop and beer cans by contorting them into iconic cartoon characters, robots and computer games heroes. Twisting and shaping to life the likes of Buzz and Woody from Toy Story, My Little Pony and Hello Kitty, to name just a few. Drinking beer in the sake of producing work, now that’s what we call a top job…

It was actually the logo and packaging of The Greenhouse Tavern’s vinegars that grabbed our attention.

Sur La Table; Decorative Ornaments

Not something that’ll necessarily be gracing the We Heart christmas tree, but different nonetheless. Sur La Table have a whole host of ornaments from devilled eggs, macaroons, and cuts of beef to a TV dinner (featuring meat and two veg). Very much an alternative bauble, we have to give it to them, they’re rather nostalgic and quite real to look at…

Droog; For everything there is a season, Tea Towels

Reflecting upon cultural, historical and botanical characteristics in the Netherlands, For everything there is a season – a set of 12 chequered tea towels by Annelys de Vet and available at Droog – is a calendar of sorts, expressing how cultural identities are constructed and deconstructed, and woven into words on a collection of tea towels.

Diesel Home; Heavy Metal Lamp

The two words ‘heavy’ and ‘metal’ are so synonymous with the musical genre, it’s easy to forget that they can also describe, well, heavy metal – which is exactly what this industrially influenced table and floor lamp from Diesel and Foscarini is. Not to say that it doesn’t share a little more with the aforementioned devil-worshipping rock music; it’s dark, foreboding, packs quite a punch, and – most importantly – comes in black.
