Them for Us

The latest addition to DesignByThem’s timber range, “Them Chair” is a modern interpretation of the enduring furniture designs of the 1960s.

Combining a classic aesthetic with sustainable living, it is constructed

We’ve never seen a wine cooler this skinny (or cool), so when Vinotemp sent us a heads up about this new product, we knew we had to feature it. Talk about a space saver! This unique cooler is industry standard height and depth but under 6″ wide. Think of all the places you could fit this cooler. And it holds


push pin doesnt make a hole

Hanging cherished photos and other paper keepsakes can be a drag since you’ll probably have to use a pushpin that puts a hole in the very thing you want to preserve. Pon, designed by Mark Weiser, is a different kind of pushpin that treats your stuff far more gently.

Retro-futuristic Radness

A tribute to the classic Citroën DS of yesteryear and its designer Flaminio Bertoni, the DS21 Renaissance captures the core styling of the iconic estate wagon in a fashion on par with the French brand’s modern identity. Like the original, the Renaissance should be noted for its aerodynamic, futuristic body design with fender skirts that both harken back


Change in Equilibrium

Inspired by the literary work of Paulo Coelho, the Animada chair is the sculptural genius of designer Eduardo Benamor Duarte that channels the animistic belief that every non-human form has a spiritual essence. The sequential array of identical ribs gradually rotate from each other to creates a visual illusion of changing shape. The resulting aesthetic is is

A Perfect Blend: Patchwork Wood

Table 101 is an exploration in the manipulation of wood to achieve an aesthetic that’s slightly askew in character. Made primarily of solid white oak, one side is patched with hard maple and joined together using handmade corian butterfly inlayed keys. Completely oxidized and fitted with sturdy iron legs, the result is a playful patchwork

Pop-A-Point Tools

Rewind to school days and do you recollect absentmindedly play with the Pop-A-Point rainbow pen? Who knew that such a simple idea of a functional mechanical pencil would inspire a bunch of designers to create an innovation that revolutionizes the tool industry! I’m talking about the Tool Pen by mininch; so cool and well designed! It’s a pint-sized


winter stations design competition

Have you ever walked down a beach in the winter and seen the forlorn, abandoned lifeguard stations dotting the sand? These poor, underused structures really only get to shine for a few months a year before colder weather keeps everyone at home. The Winter Stations Design Competition is a delightfully offbeat way to celebrate the lowly guard station – and
