When a new closeout store opened in my neighborhood a few months back, I suspected it would provide an excellent source for finding this site’s weekly Pink Thing of the Day, and I was, of course, correct. This 4-item Pink Fantasyfragrance and body care collection, which smells like ‘pink fantasy’ I suppose, was on sale for just $6.99! Considering it is a limited edition, I’d say that is quite a bargain!
These very fancy Pink Faceted Gemstone Souvenir Pens are currently on sale in the gift shop a the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California in conjunction with their exhibit, All That Glitters, The Crown Jewels of the Walt Disney Archives.
LA-based designer Alex Brokamp is inspired by the Maya Angelou quote “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” When designing new pieces, his goal is to instill a meaningful connection between object and consumer that searches for a balance between physical and emotional attraction to an object.

Brokamp’s commitment to combining technology, spatial awareness, and innovation has been a common theme throughout his work. The Collate Table Collection is no exception. The coffee and side tables in this collection are made using cutting-edge fabrication techniques and are inspired by process art; so the pieces celebrate the manner in which something is made being equally important as the outcome.
The Collate Tables are crafted from aluminum plates that have patterns cut into them using CNC (computer numerical control) toolpaths. The cellular shape of the tabletop allows thetoolpaths to create a playful pattern on the surface. This millwork not only gives insights into the high-tech fabrication process, but also creates an interesting dialogue and engaging experience for anyone looking at and walking around them.
The table treats the aluminum plate as the canvas and the toolpaths act as the brushstrokes. The finish on these aluminum tables can be anodized in several different color options as well.
