the nowness takes us inside jeffrey deitch’s LA home.

October 27th, 2010 · No Comments

I have secretly been hoping that someone would give us a peek into the home of LA’s most exciting new transplant and the new director of LA MOCA. Deitch has [...]

shoe the bear’s modern saddle shoe.

August 24th, 2010 · 4 Comments

I rather like Shoe The Bear‘s interpretation of the classic saddle shoe for ladies. I couldn’t find a materials list, but it looks like the shoes are made of suede (upper) and wrapped leather (lower). Each season, the Denmark-based shoe company collaborates with a new designer or artist to keep things fresh and interesting. For its Spring/Summer 2011 line, it [...]

Why Todd Selby should photograph our place.

August 23rd, 2010 · No Comments

The Internets are all atwitter with news of CB2′s The Selby Is In Your Place contest, and, well, we’ve entered our apartment. The basic jist of the contest is to get as many votes as you can to advance to the second round of 50 contestants, at which point winners will be chosen. And the grand [...]

can chanel no. 5 grease up your bicycle?

August 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Probably not. But Chain-L No 5 certainly can.   Now, I’m not entirely sure that Chain-L is all that different from other lubricants. If you’re wondering what sets it apart, check out the FAQ. However, based on looks and creative genius alone, Chain-L is by far the best looking bike lubricant I’ve seen. OK, so [...]

muvbox ups the ante for sidewalk food venders.

July 28th, 2010 · No Comments

What may first appear as nothing more than spiffed up shipping containers, these steel capsules double as hip little cafes in Montreal’s Old Port, serving elegant dishes such as lobster rolls and seafood pizza.  The muvbox is built from recycled steel and powered entirely by the sun. I must admit that while everything about this concept is quite clever, [...]
