Good Thing, a vibrant and youthful studio out of Brooklyn, NY, maintain a functional yet simple aesthetic with their everyday decor. The Field Candlestick blends hand painted wood with steel - and could replace easter eggs in your easter-egg hunt next year!
Pelle, another studio out of good ol' Brooklyn, NY is a brand I can get behind. They pride themselves in designs that are in reach of everyday consumers and should be "lived with, handled, worn and enjoyed!" Spectrum is a set of 12, soy wax candles present a visual spectrum of color and olefactory spectrum of scents.
As the candles burn down, a unique artform begins to take shape from the excessively drippy wax. If ithe design sloth owned a set of these candles, the finished product would be mounted on the wall.
Another set of functional objects for the everyday design lover by Pelle - the Joyce Candle Holder - are composed of construction-grade lumber with cracks and splints filled with bright white material (probably resin.) This design strays just far enough away from the material's natural form, elevating it from mundane to desirable.
created by snowman, this "endless runner" style snowboard game generates around the clock, stunning flat graphics reminiscent of a simpler time. sherbet sunrises are paired with geometric mountainscapes and eerie starry nights with an occasional, treacherous thunderstorm. do not miss the opportunity to get lost in the trailer.
it would be impossible for any player to become aggressive at missing a massive ski jump with such charming beauty in the midst. unfortunately only ios users can enjoy alto's wonderland for now but android and windows enthusiasts can be hopeful of a version in the future.
If you’re reading the first post on the design sloth, it’s because you know me, Sara Z. What you might not know is that I am constantly reading about, sifting through, sharing and simply absorbing as much awesome design as my day allows - purposeful, inspiring, and insightful design. This stuff can come from anywhere, it can come in any medium and serve any purpose and I will be sharing some of this stuff from now on right here! This blog is not about interior design, or graphic design, or trendy design – this is my personal design hangout and I hope you’ll come on back and hang with me!
