Lettuce Umbrella

I guess this idea is as old as the world (taking shelter from the rain by using leafs, is so last century:)). But the Tokyo based designers from Noble made this ‘vegetabrella’ look very cool and fresh.

And this ‘salad of umbrellas’ advocates a healthy lifestyle at the same time. Not only does it make us yearn for mouthwatering food (the right word in this context:)) but it encourages us to go out more… even when it rains.

Mount Fuji Tissue Holder

Today I mostly stayed in the house with a cold. A Sunday spent on the couch browsing the web with a box of tissues right next to me:). Actually pretty relaxing! I stumbled upon the most amazing things, like these fascinating pictures of the Egyptian pyramids covered in snow this weekend for the first time in 112 years. So cool… Cairo has been transformed into a winter wonderland after a “historic” storm in the Middle East brought the rare treat to Egypt’s capital on Friday.

I had to think of this little Case 3776 an awesomely clever Japanese design, named after the elevation of Mt. Fuji in meters. It looks a bit like a snowy pyramid and I would love to bring it to my meeting tomorrow. Making a creative act out of inelegantly blowing my nose:). Check it out here.
