Good Goods: WWW Carafe

WWW Carafe

This small family of glasses and carafes was cleverly named WWW for water, wine, and whiskey. I can’t help but get a kick at where Fabio Meliota’s inspiration for this collection originated. The shape came from characters in an Italian commercial from the sixties and seventies. It just goes to show you that inspiration is everywhere, and we are constantly influenced in design whether we realize it or not.

Good Goods: Maak Soap

The product photography from the folks at Maak Lab is really excellent. It is why I’ve chosen to share their work even though I’ve never used it. Their soaps sound alluring, ranging from masculine firs to more feminine rose blossoms. They also have a couple of editions available only at other retailers.

Good Goods: Kat and Roger Ceramics

During our West Texas trip, we stopped into a place called Garza Marfa. The owners, Jamey and Constance, were very kind. While we didn’t have the budget for one of their beautiful pieces of furniture, we did pick up a hanging planter from their collection of Kat and Roger pieces.

Curiosities: Photobooth, A Biography

photoboothmeagsfitzgerald

Steven and I visit a photobooth each year, and if we are traveling we make a point to stop by one in each city. We don’t often get photographs of the both of us, and it’s a nice way to document our time together. It’s a ritual that is shared by many, but it is one that is getting harder to do. Many of the chemical photobooths are becoming antiques not worth the money to maintain. Meags Fitzgerald has chronicled this, and the photobooth’s history in an illustrated graphic novel released last year. This really great interview with CKUA about the book is worth a listen. I haven’t picked up a copy for myself yet, but it’s on my list for sure.
