The Octopus Finger (in Pink) was spotted by me at Flying Tiger, a fantastic design and gift store on the Upper East Side! I am only sorry that I did not take a photo with these Pink Tentacles on the tips of my fingers!

Probably the coolest thing you can buy in Manhattan for only $1! What a Bargain!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Bike in Copenhagen

Something we learned very quickly while visiting the Danish city of Copenhagen in early June is that people like to Ride Bikes there. Thirty-Six percent of the population commutes to work a bike, and they are just fucking everywhere, so you had better watch out! It is insane, and yet, not insane, because it saves gas and is better for you and the environment. I took this photo of nice Pink Bike while my sister and I took shelter from a thunder storm on our way to see some sites. Copenhagen is an awesome city and I would go back for another visit in a heartbeat.

Eye On Design: Chariot Mobile Table

What kitchen or dining area would fail to make a  statement with something like this in the room? The Chariot Rullebord (2012) is a mobile table/trolley  consisting of three simple elements joined together: wheels, trays and structure. The wheels, which in common carts are usually small, are brought to the extreme size, becoming the iconic element of the project.  This fantastic piece, shown here in its eye-grabbing  bright Red finish, is designed by Copenhagen-based firm Gamfratesi and manufactured from lacquered MDF board, metal and rubber by Casamania in Milan, Italy.

The renowned designer Alfredo Häberli has joined forces with BMW to create a compelling installation for Designmuseum that tackles the values of future mobility at a conceptual level. Following the BMW Design theme Precision & Poetry, the Zurich-based designer embarked on a thought journey that begins with childhood memories, sketches and formal studies. It ends with a large-scale model, and leads to a spatial installation that allows personal thoughts on future mobility to be experienced in the present.

The focus of the exhibition is a wooden ribbed model ten meters long by four meters high (located in the museum’s front courtyard) that translates the theme of future mobility into an avant-garde form of impressive precision and dimension. With its diverse formats and dimension, the installation invites the observer on an individual journey into the mobile future. Häberli’s futuristic perspective on mobility was created for Milan’s major design event Salone del Mobile in 2015.
