Acacia Honey Dipper by Miriam Mirri for ALESSI

Designed by Miriam Mirri for ALESSI, ACACIA is part of Mirri’s 2014 “Objets-Bijoux” collection. This special item is a honey dipper made of stainless steel. Inspired by honeycomb yet made all its own, ACACIA stands out among a market dominated by wooden dippers and honey spoons. The sleek material gives this design a touch of elegance, and the hexagon and stars at the tip playfully reimagine nature’s geometries.

Monstera Plant Pot by Tim van de Weerd

Reminiscent of Salvador Dali’s elephants, these leggy flower pots were created by the Dutch designer Tim van de Weerd. The roots of the home garden design were made of steel and bent into an organic shape. This makes the pots more durable than they look. Coated with epoxy clay and lacquered in white, the finished design resembles classic ceramic, a traditional outward material to complement the surreal form.

This particular design houses a painted interior inside a clear glass shell made by Czech artisans. The pipe-shaped lampshade hangs from a cord in a matching hue so that the design loosely resembles a pull whistle.

Wooddle, Slender Modern Bike Seat

Wooddle is a modern bike seat created by Italian designer Roberto Lombardi. Big on color yet slender in shape, the cycling accessory is a head-turner and a minimalist innovation. The design is crafted from die-cast aluminum and one’s choice of silicone or veneered wood. Either option is waterproof, lightweight, and durable, performing just as well if not better than a standard bicycle seat.
